Truman Annex House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6-8, Private Home in Truman Annex, Private Pool

A trip to Key West is like a breath of fresh air – the sounds of rustling palm trees, the scent of fragrant flowers and the smell of salt air are the rejuvenation that only the tropics can provide. This home is a breath of Key West fresh air, or “Brisa Fresca”, a timeless, beach-inspired home that seems to be straight out of the pages of Coastal Living. Each room is light and airy with those special island touches. The location of Brisa Fresca is ideal: just walk two blocks to the Duval Street favorites likes the Green Parrot and Willie T’s to enjoy some live music, or down the block to Mallory Square for entertainment and a sunset stroll. Best of all, you’ll be less than a half mile from the Fort Zachary Taylor State Park Beach for a day of snorkeling and sun.

Combine the beautiful décor of this home with the perfect location and the amenities of a private heated pool and private off-street parking, and you have the ideal spot to relax and recharge.


Entering through the carport gate off of Noah Lane, you’ll be tempted to jump right into the luxurious private pool. The pool is large by Key West standards, with plenty of room for the family to swim around with both sun and shade throughout the day.

The pool is surrounded by comfortable chaise lounges to relax in your own oasis all day. A large propane BBQ grill sits in the back yard as well. There is a full outdoor dining set for six right by the pool for a great island meal after a day of sun.


The open living plan of the first floor has a light and airy feeling and is perfect for entertaining. The living area has a plush sectional sofa that pulls out into a sleeper sofa option. There are additional comfortable chairs in the extended sitting room around a large flat screen HDTV with full cable and DVD player. The living room opens up to the fully equipped chef’s kitchen, a beautifully designed space with gourmet appliances created for those who LIVE in the kitchen (when you’re not dining at one of the amazing nearby restaurants). You’ll find lots of hidden treasures in this kitchen: from the extra bar seating for three, to the touch-top stove, to the convection microwave oven hidden in the extended kitchen island. Off the kitchen is a lovely dining area that overlooks Emma Street and seats six comfortably. In addition to these common areas, should you have a group that only needs 2 bedrooms, the third bedroom of this home can convert easily into a spacious office upon request.


The master bedroom is on the second floor, with a grand King-sized bed, flat screen TV, walk-in closet, plenty of dresser space, and private balcony overlooking the pool area. The master bathroom is en-suite, with dual sinks and a tub/shower. The second bedroom upstairs has two twin beds that convert to a King easily upon request. This bedroom also has a TV, closet, plenty of dresser space, and an en-suite bathroom with a vanity-lit mirror, tub/shower and sliding glass door. The third bedroom is on the first floor, with a Queen-sized bed that has a memory foam topper for extra comfort. The third full bathroom has a tub and shower.


Truman Annex is the most exclusive private residence community in Old Town Key West. Located just off the main drag of Duval Street, Truman Annex is an oasis of calm, quiet streets lined with palm trees and beautiful Floridian homes. Within Truman Annex, Noah Lane is famous for its quintessential island residences with Old Town charm, and “Brisa Fresca” is one of the poster homes for this scene.


Washer & Dryer, Central Heat and A/C, Ceiling Fans, Private Pool with available Pool Heat, Flat Screen Cable TVs, Fully Equipped Gourmet Kitchen, Private Covered Carport, Linens and Towels provided. Interim housekeeping provided upon request. Wireless high-speed Internet access and Full Cable is included. This property will accommodate 6-8 adults. No pets permitted.

We absolutely loved the property.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the property. Shel was very helpful. The property was clean and very comfortable. The property was very centrally located to lots of fun spots. I would recommend this property to anyone. We went to Salute, The Blue Macaw, and Latitudes. They all had great food!!! We have stayed at 3 properties in Key West and this is our favorite. We can't wait to go back next year.

KEYWEST vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in Key West at the Brisa Fresca property in the Truman Annex! Shel was our guest relations manager and Took extra good care of us. The house was beautiful and fully appointed to suit all of our needs. The pool area was a much needed hang out space during a very hot week in Key West. The location of the house was in walking distance of everything we needed to see on the island. Thank you Shel for a wonderful week! We were three couples traveling together and would definitely recommend this property as well as last key realty when planning a vacation to Key West.

Lovely house, Great location, Great service

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Brisa Fresca house! It is gorgeous and the Truman Annex is a great location. It was very spacious and the rooms are nicely decorated and very clean. The house was well equipped with everything we needed in all rooms, especially the kitchen! The pool, patio and grill area is also great!

We really enjoyed our stay. We'll definitely be back!

Great house in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful historic house and neighborhood in Key West. The location is perfect, close to the beach, Duval street, historical sites, Mallory Square and many great restaurants.

Our family felt right at home in this comfortable spacious house. The kitchen had everything we needed. The pool area was fabulous, with lush vegetation, covered sitting areas, large gas grill. Even though houses are close together we had complete privacy and tranquility. It was wonderful to be able to relax and enjoy some family time without worrying about other people like we would in a condo with shared pool and outdoor space.

The master bedroom was large, had a great on suite bathroom and a balcony overlooking the pool area. The 2nd bedroom upstairs had 2 twin beds and its own bath. We had 2 teens sharing it and they had plenty of space and loved having their own TV.

The 3rd bedroom was downstairs and pretty small but still large enough for a queen sized Murphy bed. The mattress was very comfortable and my husband and I appreciated not having to climb stairs. If you don't need the 3rd bedroom the bed can be put up and the room used as an office which gives it a lot of flexibility.

We would all love to stay here again. The guest services director, Shel made sure that everything went smoothly on check in, was available in case of problems (but we didn't have any) and check out was a breeze. They also have concierge service that was very helpful booking tours and stocking groceries ahead of our visit.

Loved it!!!

Great family space

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location. Close to the beach, Duval street, Mallory Square, shopping and wonderful restaurants. The house itself was spacious and comfortable. The pool area is secluded and very nice with plenty of places to lounge, a wonderful grill and the pool is fabulous. The master bedroom is large with an on suite bath and balcony facing the backyard. The 2nd bedroom is large also with 2 twin beds and its own bath. We had 2 teens in it and they loved it. The 3rd bedroom is downstairs. It was much smaller with a queen size Murphy bed but the mattress was very comfortable so it worked for us. There is a full size bath downstairs also so it was very convenient for the 6 of us. I would love to stay there again.

Awesome property and location

  • 5 of 5

I brought my family of 6 to Key West for a family vacation and stayed at the Brisa Fresca. The home was fully equipped and in very good condition. The pool in the backyard was a big hit with my daughter and the location could not be better. Close to Duvall and the beach, yet in a private and quiet area. Shel greeted us upon arrival and provided recommendations for dining in Key West. We also had Shel stock the home with groceries ahead of our arrival which was exactly as requested. Great home and outstanding service from Shel. I would highly recommend this home.
