Key West Condo Rental Photos and Description

Nicely Renovated First Floor Condo Close To The Pool.

Totally renovated, this garden level condo features the privacy and the additional windows of an end unit so you can enjoy fresh cross breezes, sun drenched mornings, and shady afternoons. It is close to the pool for quick dips. The lushly landscaped and fenced back deck and garden encourage al fresco dining in a serene tropical setting.

My Mother stays here during the winter months so you can be sure it is well stocked and furnished, and that thought has gone into comfort for both short and long term vacation stays. It includes WIFI, HD TV, and Apple TV.

The Shipyard Condos are located steps from the famed Mallory Square sunsets, and Ft. Zachary Tayler Beach. The Green Parrot Bar (oldest blues bar in America) & Duval Street are only a block and a half away.

About Bob Walsh

We have been coming to Key West as a family for over fifteen years. Our favorite times are often spent on the water kayaking, fishing, snorkeling, and just messing around on our boat.

Bob Walsh purchased this condo in 2012

Why Bob Walsh chose Key West

After spending years of living in a second story Shipyard unit (VRBO73629), my mother wanted a first floor garden style unit for ease of access. It has the added advantage of allowing her to have outside dinner parties for up to ten people which she enjoys immensely. She will spend her winters here and her summers in New England. It will be available to discerning visitors for the rest of the year.

What makes this condo unique

I bought the condo in August of 2012. It was totally renovated in October of 2012 with a new kitchen, bath, moldings, window treatments, paint, furniture, linens, etc. The deck was replaced and expanded, and the garden nicely landscaped. It came with five beautiful palms which rustle softly in the wind in the evenings. A picturesque bougainvillea provides privacy and color to the back border fence.

Very Happy

  • 5 of 5

We rented Garden Oasis for a girls weekend. I was very happy with the condo. It was clean, everything worked properly, and was stocked with everything from appliances to playing cards, Apple TV in every room, comfy beds and nice pillows. The pool is literally out the back door of the unit. I'd definitely stay there again.

Great place! but mind the AC...

  • 4 of 5

Can recommend everything about this place!

ONE NOTE: we visited in mid-May, and the AC never got the condo temp below 75 degrees. The ceiling fans (in every room) help, but if your not used to the heat/humidity it can be a bit "sticky".

This condo was very clean, well stocked with every thing you need for every day living.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a good size, clean, comfortable, very private and located perfectly within the walled in condo complex. Out the back sliding door was a fenced in ground level deck surrounded by a tropical garden, making it very private. There was a gate in the rear fence which led right to the complex pool(good size). The entire condo complex was perfectly located for Duval St. (two blocks), the beach, and walking distance to many of the Key west attractions. The owner was more than helpful and courteous to us and we would highly recommend this property.

The perfect location in Key West

  • 5 of 5

This is the 5th time my family has been to Key West. In the past we have rented from Bob's mother Ann (she used to have a condo also). I had booked her place in early 2015, she had called me several months later to say she was selling it and would be closing on it during the summer. She very graciously allowed my family to stay at her son's condo for the week we had booked. Bob's condo was in the perfect location next to the pool and was loaded with everything we needed. The Truman Annex is a very quite place day or night to stay. I have recommended this place to others who have asked me where to stay in Key West. Thanks again Ann for another great week in KW!!

Excellent owner! Very accomodating!

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to Key West. Our second time to rent from Bob and his mother. Bob and his mother are very accommodating and customer focused. Both are a joy to deal with. We have had absolutely no problems and are extremely satisfied with their condos were have rented. They provided a list of their favorite restaurants, grocery store, and suggestions for entertainment spots. We will definitely be renting from them on our next visit to KW. Thanks again to Bob and Mrs. Walsh for providing first rate accommodations, great communication and directions, and for suggestions to the local favorites. Jack and April Fuller, Silver Creek, GA.

a nice vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5

The location of the condo was perfect. It was 2 streets over from Duval St. and also kind of in the middle of where we wanted to be. The condo was exactly as described, nice space for 4. The one bathroom was a hassle at times but we knew in advance there was only one. A bonus for us is the pool was right outside your back door. It was perfect for a morning swim. Kind of disappointed it didn't stay open a little later and also closed one day for painting. It's very hot in Key West so disappointed we couldn't swim. Very clean, plenty of towels. Major disappointment was owner asked we not put AC lower then 77. My husband was miserable. That was a lot to get used to. Overall the condo is great location and I would stay again and the owner was easy to get ahold of.
