About Patty

Originally from the Chicago area, we moved to Key West from St. Louis. We used to visit sunny Key West quite often on vacations and knew we needed to live here one day. We purchased the townhome in 2007 and lived in it until 2014 when we moved into a condo, also in Truman Annex. We live in Key West year round so we are here to answer renter's questions or help in any way we can.

Patty purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Patty chose Key West

We fell in love with the location of this charming townhome in Truman Annex. We also liked that it was an end unit and the extra windows brought in lots of natural light. Also the shared pool is conveniently located right out the back deck gate. We appreciated being able to walk or ride our bikes to the beach, restaurants, the Tropic Cinema, friend's homes and almost everywhere on the island.

What makes this townhome unique

While we lived in the townhome we renovated the kitchen adding granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. We also renovated both bathrooms and added glass doors to both showers. One of our favorite additions was adding Caribbean style plantation shutters throughout the home. We also loved opening the two sets of French doors on the first floor and enjoying the view of the tropical landscaping. We felt very lucky to be living in Paradise!

A perfect spot to stay in Key West

  • 5 of 5

We are two couples who stayed in this lovely townhouse for a week in March. As many other guests have said, this is a wonderful property that is beautifully maintained and furnished with everything you could want for a perfect vacation, including linens as well as a fully-equipped kitchen, bedrooms and living areas inside and out. The location in Truman Annex can't be beat - we loved the grounds, the pool, the quiet atmosphere, and the fact that a 10 minute walk or bike ride takes you almost anywhere. Patty could not have been more helpful or accommodating. Even though she was away on vacation herself, she responded quickly to emails and even enlisted a friend to get us a new coffee maker when the one in the apartment stopped working. She checked in with us several times before our arrival and during our stay. Patty is a wonderful host who has thought of everything to make your stay in Key West as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.

The perfect place to stay in Key West

  • 5 of 5

Four of us lady friends just spent a wonderful week here. Patty's townhouse was perfect. We spent a lot of time out on the patio in the beautiful weather, just steps from the pool. Every thing on Duval St. and vicinity is a short walk. Fort Zachary Taylor State Park is great and also within walking distance. Patty gave us recommendations for reasonable places to eat..the Blue MacCaw, Kelly's Caribbean Bar Grill & Brewery, and the Blue Heaven for breakfast were some favorites. We went on a 2 hr kayaking echo tour at Lazy Dog Adventures. We were able to pack light because there is a washer & dryer there which was great. We loved the sound of the roosters in the morning. Truman Annex is truly one of a kind & I would not stay anywhere else when I come back. We truly loved everything about this vacation. If I could make one change, though, it would be to have a full size couch in the living room instead of a love seat.

Title Our experience in Starfish

  • 5 of 5

Our winter vacation staying in (Starfish) was just (the Best) , Patty and Scott are very organized and sent us house information and were quick to answer any questions , the house was spotless, friendly and just plain perfect for Key West. We enjoyed overlooking the pool and found the patio to be a perfect place to relax ,read or to just do nothing. The neighbors were all very friendly ,we walked everywhere and took advantage of all the super places to dine, shows to see, beach days etc. A+ Thank you. We are counting our months till we return.

Best place!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting through VRBO for quite a few years now but this is the first time in Key West. Not only were we impressed with the house for Key West but it was one of the best houses we've rented. Patty was a delight. The house was very pretty and VERY clean. Every detail was addressed. There was a well stocked kitchen so we could enjoy some homemade delights. As far as location goes I don't know if it could get any better. More security than many places and almost everything is within walking distance. We would definitely stay there again!

Key West is an island so there are many water sports available such as boating (power or sail), fishing, jet skiing, parasailing, kite sailing, wind surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding (my new favorite water sport), diving and snorkeling. You can walk to many of these activities from our townhome and some tour operations offer a pick up and drop off service. It's a short walk to our favorite beach at Fort Zachary State Park. The beach is very relaxing offering a concession, chairs and umbrellas, picnic tables, grills, snorkeling, shade trees and a fort to explore. Because our townhome is close to Duval Street you can also walk to a variety of restaurants and bars and many offer free entertainment. Many of the restaurants offer outdoor seating so ask for a sidewalk table so you can 'people watch'. One of our favorite places for Happy Hour is The Green Parrot Bar, the oldest bar on the island and only 1 block away. Try Sound Check at 5:30 on Friday and Sunday to hear some free and fantastic live bands. Also, walk to numerous shops and galleries. You can walk to two live theatres and a cinema (rated 'Best Cinema in Florida'). Many people like to rent bikes, our transportation of choice, and rentals are available one block away. Bikes are a great way to see the whole island which is only 2 miles by 4 miles. Scooters and electric cars are also available. If you would like to see and hear about the history of the island, go for a tour on the Conch Train or Trolley. It's a relaxing way to see some of our wonderful architecture and hear the stories that make this island so unique. We always recommend it to someone here for the first time. You can walk to historic attractions such as The Customs House, The Little Whitehouse (where President Truman would come to get away from DC), The Hemingway Home (home of the six-toed cats). The Lighthouse, and Mel Fisher's Shipwreck Museum and more. For a special evening out make reservations at Latitudes, the beach side restaurant on Sunset Key. It's a short 5 minute ferry ride from Key West and worth the trip. Ask for a table on the beach and enjoy wonderful service and delicious food surrounded by Tiki torches in the sand. Try to go right before sunset if you can. At least one night during your stay you need to walk 2.5 blocks to waterside Mallory Square for the 'Sunset Celebration'. About an hour before sunset a nice crowd gathers to watch street performers, check out the local art booths, and enjoy drinks and snacks. Make sure to say hello to Popcorn Joe and try some of the best popcorn ever! Bring your camera to take pictures of the fabulous sunset and sailboats out on sunset cruises. You may find a week is not long enough to sample all the fun attractions Key West has to offer!
