Beautiful 2BR king/twins, End Unit Truman Annx Ground FL, Pool on property
The Rooster Retreat is a lovely 2 bedroom, (king/twins, and queen bed) 1 bathroom end-unit offering a nice kitchen, comfortable leather sectional, LARGE deck and lush landscaping. Due to fire code ordinance, this condo is unable to have an outdoor grill, much like many other condos in the area.
This ground floor condo is very clean, and has well-appointed bedrooms with beautiful linens and art work. The extra large window in the living room floods the condo with lots of natural light not found in many other units. The new and open kitchen with quartz countertops, beautiful lighting and seating for four is stylish and functional. A washer/dryer are located within the unit for your convenience. The fully equipped kitchen, pots & pans, towels & linens and central air conditioning provide all the amenities you want for long- and short-term stays.
Relax at the Truman Annex Shipyard Pool - which is a minute walk from the condo.

Rooster Retreat is within easy walking and biking distance to everything Old Town Key West has to offer, including Fort Zachary Beach and a one minute walk to the Truman Annex Shipyard pool. Our condo is outfitted with beach towels, beach chairs, a cooler, etc. We also have designated on-site parking, although it's likely you will not need (or want) to get in your car while you're here.

About Tom and Marie
We both grew up in Ohio, met at Ohio State University, married and moved to Charlotte, NC. Ten years ago we relocated to Chicago. Living in Chicago is great, but the winters are long and the city is hectic. Visiting Key West allows us to slow down and really enjoy a different pace of life.
Tom and Marie purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Tom and Marie chose Old Town
We purchased this property, and named it The Rooster Retreat, as a sanctuary from when life has you running around like a chicken, or in this case a 'rooster'. The lifestyle in Key West and amazing sunsets can all teach us to keep life simple and take pause when you can. The only rush hour here is the walk to your favorite happy hour. We retreat to the keys to unwind and relax, hear live music, eat great local seafood.
What makes this Condo unique
Our ground floor end unit condo offers more light, privacy and island breezes than others because there are no buildings to the left of us or behind us. In addition, our assigned parking spot is close to our front door, which makes for easy loading and unloading of suit cases, groceries, etc.

Rooster Retreat Rocks!
Perfectly located a couple of blocks from central Duval St. and an easy walk to many of the bars and restaurants. Clean and extremely comfortable for a home away from home and had everything we needed. Grounds are tropical, lush and well cared for. We enjoyed our stay tremendously!
Thank you for the fabulous review. We appreciate your comment about how clean and comfortable the condo was with everything you needed for your stay. The location can't be beat - and at night, it's quiet.
We look forward to your next stay.
Can’t wait to come back!
We love “The Rooster Retreat “. It has everything you want in a vacation rental. The beds are comfortable, the appliances are all in good working order, a sunny
and inviting outdoor deck and most of all it is a beautiful and safe location.
Thank you Richard and Karen for the nice review. I'm so glad that you found the beds are comfortable, and loved the outdoor deck. It's so nice that that our unit is at the end of the property, our deck is so nice and private and also quiet. We are so glad you'll be coming back to beautiful Key West! Marie and Tom
We had a wonderful time and loved the condo. Definitely will be coming back and staying here again.
Nice, clean, easy to access. Plenty of room
for our family of 4. Upstairs neighbors were basically our alarm clock as they were not the quietest but that is normal anywhere, hotels included. Loved the ability to cook our own meals and also bring home left overs from our evenings eating out. Location was perfect, allowed for us to walk almost everywhere. The worst part about it was that we had to leave. Myself and my daughter have fallin in love with Key West.
Great Stay at Rooster Retreat
We stayed at Rooster Retreat for one week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The condominium was equipped with anything you need for a day at the beach or at the pool. The location is within walking distance of downtown and the beach. Marie and Tom were very good communicating with us before and after our stay. Due to the hurricane that occurred prior to our stay, they kept us updated on the condition of the condo and city. Our security deposit was returned very timely. We would definitely consider staying there again.
Very clean and very well stocked with all pool, beach and kitchen amenities.
The condo is a great 2 bedroom corner unit, very clean with lots of natural lighting.
It is also very close to everything on the island. We rented bikes for the 7 days we were here and explored the whole island, all the beaches and found some amazing places to eat off the beaten trail. Would highly recommend this property and area of the island.
Great place to stay!
Had everything we needed. Marie was awesome to deal with. Loved the back deck for morning mimosas. Would definitely stay there again. First time in Key West - won't be the last. So much fun!
Paula, Thank you for the great review. I'm so glad you and your friends had such a fun time and loved the condo. We look forward to hearing from you again! Marie
Our condo is in the heart of old town Key West. Enjoy a three minute walk to Blue Heaven Restaurant, La Creperie, Green Parrot, along with taking in the sights, sounds, and characters on Duval Street. You are a short walk or bike ride from exciting Mallory Square where sunset is celebrated every evening, or walk out behind our complex to appreciate a low-key, quiet sunset from the Coast Guard pier. You are also minutes from Fort Zachary beach.
