Truman Annex Townhome Rental Photos and Description

2 br, 2.5 ba (sleeps 6)

Refurbished throughout in a fun, tropical them, Amberjack is situated on Southard Street in the exclusive gated community of Truman Annex, very near Harry Truman's Little White House and right in the heart of Old Town Key West; a great spot to watch the October Fantasy Fest parade as it weaves its way past the front door.

Amberjack is within easy walking distance of Mallory Dock, where the sunset is celebrated everyday: Duval Street with its shops, restaurants and entertainments, and Fort Zachary Beach where there is awesome snorkeling (snorkel hire available), a beach-side cafe with eating area, picnic tables dotted under pine trees, lockers, fresh water showers and restrooms. (Smathers Beach is another great beach but is a little further away). Along the route to Fort Zachary you will pass the Eco Discovery Centre, a free educational facility for the whole family.

Another great place to visit, within walking or cycling distance, is the Marina. During the day boat charters are available for fishing, diving, snorkeling, para-sailing, 'chilling out' on the water; in the evening there are numerous bars, music and world-class restaurants.

In less than a two minute walk from Amberjack there is a deli/convenience store, Green Parrot Bar, and Eaton Bikes where you can hire bikes daily or weekly at a reasonable rate. If cycling is not for you and you don't want to hire a car, Pirate Scooters (located opposite the Green Parrot Bar) will hire you an electric car. Amberjack also has it's own off street parking space.

Amberjack provides everything for a relaxing vacation. Fully air conditioned throughout plus ceiling fans in all rooms.

Downstairs there is a large living/dining/kitchen area and a half bathroom. The living area boasts a Cozy sofa that opens in to a luxurious Queen bed with a ceiling fan above, two further comfy chairs, a 50 inch Flatscreen TV, Blu-ray, CD stereo, Ipod docking station and WiFi internet access. There is a fully equipped kitchen (oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer with ice maker) and a dining table that seats four with two comfortable stools at the kitchen bar. The patio is furnished with table, chairs, parasol and an electric grill; perfect for Al Fresco dining on a balmy Key West evening. The shared pool is just 25 footfalls from the patio gate.

Upstairs you will find the laundry area, with stackable washer/dryer, and two bedrooms, one queen and one twin (that can easily be converted in to a king) both with en-suite bathrooms, Flatscreen TV's and balconies with tables and chairs.

The property is fully maintained; bed linen, towels and beach towels are provided.

A great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We were very comfortable staying at Amberjack. When we first arrived, it was very warm inside the rental home. We found that the air conditioner wasn't working properly. I called the management company, as it was after hours and on a Sunday when we arrived. I was called back within 10 minutes and the person said they will have a person come out and take a look at it. Since someone had to be there when the A/C Maintenance person arrived, we took our time in unpacking rather than immediately exploring Duval Street. The maintenance man arrived within 45 minutes and had the A/C working in no time! We were very pleased with the quick service and how kind everyone was. The rest of the time there, we had no problems with the air conditioning. The place was clean, the neighbors were wonderful and pleasant. The place is far enough away from all the craziness on Duvall, yet close enough to walk to many good restaurants, Duval Street and Mallory Square. Almost every morning we would walk to Croissants de France and bring back the most delicious croissants we have tasted and eat them out on the patio. If you are a light sleeper, then do not sleep in the bedroom facing the front. There is a lot of traffic on that street as well as a couple of roosters that will start making noise at 3:30am! After a while, you really don't hear them because you get used to the sound, as there are roosters and chickens everywhere in Key West! The pool was clean and was a nice place to escape to if you needed a little peace and quiet. A bike/moped/cart rental place is a block and a half away and they are really nice people to rent from! I really like how the unit was tastefully decorated. The beds were comfortable and we liked that there was a washer and dryer in the unit. We really enjoyed our stay there and had a great time exploring Key West.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Amberjack and found it well placed for all the fun Key West has to offer. Having taken on board your comments about the road noise we will look in to how this can be addressed. As too the roosters. Our apologies for the problem with A/C unit; thankfully it was sorted quickly. We hope you return to Amberjack for future vacations.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with my brother and his wife rented Amberjack for a week of relaxation and exploring of Key West. This rental is close to everything you want to see and do in Key West with all points of interest within easy walking distance. The townhouse is nicely appointed and within steps of the pool and only two blocks to Duval St. I have been renting vacation homes for a number of years now and I have to say, the owners of this property are the most responsive and helpful couple that I have ever dealt with! A real pleasure to work with! We will rent the Amberjack again! Thanks for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!

Key West is known for it's laid back, fun atmosphere where you can have fun on the water snorkeling, fishing, scuba diving by day and then relax in the evening whilst dining under the stars and listening to music in one of Key West's many bars.

Duval Street is filled with gift shops to browse, and Key West's history can be seen in the museums, or whilst riding on the Conch Train, and it's night time ghost tours are a must for those who like to hear of the goings on in times gone by.
