About Susan Mitchell

We are living the dream! Thirty years ago we hoped to someday move to Key West! After working and raising our family in Athens Ohio for 30 years, the dream came true. Susan has been renting her weekly vacation condos in Key West for the last five years in the Historic Truman Annex. Bruce recently retired from The Athens NEWS, the paper he founded in 1977. Susan and Bruce have two sons. Will is a college student at OSU. Orhan is a CPA who works in Columbus, Ohio.

Susan Mitchell purchased this house in 2014

Why Susan Mitchell chose Key West

This Terry Lane property became available because we moved across the pool. We were so taken by the colorful little row of cigar maker houses, each unique and well appointed with the most amazing backyard. We now wish to share this get away cottage with travelers.

What makes this house unique

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Literally between the world famous Hemingway House and Blue Heaven on a cozy narrow lane. Because this is a one month minimum rental, you will feel like a local Key Wester rather than a tourist!

This place felt comfortable from the moment I set foot in it.

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this place. A great location, and lovely hosts. Wake up in the morning and jump into the pool before doing anything else. Then go for a bike ride, and go see a band at the Green Parrot. Enjoy life without a car and make some new friends. You will not be disappointed.

Paradise, sanctuary & our piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth visit & we love every minute. Key West is amazing but we enjoy just relaxing by the pool. A perfect location, close to fabulous restaurants, Duval street, Mallory Square, Higgs & Smathers beaches. All within walking distance but if you don't want to walk bikes are provided. Love our daily bike rides along the ocean & thru the neighborhoods.☀️🌴🐚🐔🐠

Brilliant property in Key West

  • 5 of 5

Although I have enjoyed a short visit to Key West via cruise ship, this was my first trip to enjoy a full month in this area. I am so delighted to have had the opportunity to enjoy a stay at this beautiful property. Susan is a super host. She is very accommodating, quick to respond, and simply a delight to work with.

The house is set up with a great use of space. The house is well thought out and provides the comforts of home. Loved having a laundry machine to wash clothes. There was plenty of room for two couples to have space without being on top of each other.

My favorite spot was the back porch, sitting close to the swimming pool and enjoying the sound of the fountain. At night, the lit pool was relaxing and serene. There is a nice amount of shade in and around the pool which was a nice break during the July heat.

There were noodles for the pool, chairs for the beach, and bikes to get around town. Location was fabulous. It was close to many attractions and restaurants yet, very quite for some down time. Would highly recommend this property for a stay in Key West. Well worth giving 5-stars.

Perfection in Key West

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to enjoy all that Key West has to offer. The cute bungalow is just 1/2 a block from Blue Heaven and 1 1/2 blocks from Ernest Hemingway's House. The lazy river pool is the perfect afternoon cooling off spot. It is so peaceful, yet close to all the great things that Key West has to offer. Having bicycles right at the front door is also super convenient. The owners, Susan and Bruce are some of the nicest people you will ever meet!! Staying for a month is definitely the best way to enjoy all of Key West!!
