The Shipyard’s Perch is a great place to stay and play near the water and Old Town Key West!

Located in Truman Annex, a secure enclave of historic and exclusive residences, Truman Annex is the most magnificent development in Old Town Key West with wide streets lined with multi-million dollar homes that are landscaped with 30’ palms and exotic flowering plants. It is just a short stroll to the Historic “Little White House” where President Truman called home whenever he could. And you are only a ten minute walk to the warm tropical waters of the Gulf of Mexico where you can hop on a fishing boat for flats or deep sea fishing, take the Ferry to Sunset Key for lunch or dinner, go parasailing, snorkeling, diving, shopping, dining or wherever your dreams might take you. Just another short stroll takes you to Mallory Square where the world renowned “Sunset Celebration” occurs every day! This event is a “don’t miss” of things to do in Key West

The Shipyard’s Perch features professionally decorated rooms including a gourmet appointed kitchen. We provide all of your kitchen necessities, just bring the cook & the food! Spacious living room with pullout sleeper sofa. Living room doors open up into the private deck making your vacation a true Tropical experience. Each bedroom features a Queen bed and ensuite bath.

Guestbook comments from the owner

First time here and we have had so much fun. Condo was perfect and more than met our needs.

A couple of favorites:

Blue Heaven for breakfast - and the Key Lime Pie. We liked it better than Kermits!

For Cuban food - El Meson De Pepe's. lovely atmosphere, music and food. Perfect after sunset at Mallory Square.

Excellent Condo for Week Vacation in Key West

  • 5 of 5

Excellent 2nd floor fully furnished condo with 2 bedrooms / 2 baths and dedicated parking space; located in Shipyard Condominium. Excellent property management by Key West Vacation Rentals (KWVR) - which is located a couple of blocks away. The condo is located in the 600 block of Thomas Street (2 blocks from Duval Street) and is centrally located to all that Key West has to offer for amusement or food and beverage. Would definitely return!

Note check in time is hard at 3:00 p.m. but KWVR will store your luggage if you arrive early.

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for something close to Duvall street and were we could get the full exposure to Key West. A friend suggested the 2bedroom 2 bath condo and we were not disappointed. It had everything you could possibly need for a get away with the comforts of home. I was surprised to see it included WIFI but was very pleased. The condo is within walking distance to Duvall street and many historical shops and restaurants. Just a short walk to the beach and back. We will be back and we will be looking to stay at the condo again.

A wonderful Key West retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely condo in a quiet Key West location but close to all the fun and excitement of Key West. A short stroll to Duvall street restaurants and shops yet away from all the noise when you want quiet. Rent a bike for a short ride to the beach to swim, snorkel or watch the sunset. The condo is nicely decorated and the kitchen is well equipped when you want to eat in. Lovely deck for grilling, dining or relaxing. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends.

The Best of Key West - All Within Walking Distance

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! This condo simply could not be in a better spot for all of the hot spots: the beach, pool, restaurants and bars on Duval Street and most importantly Cuban Coffee Queen! Spacious, neat, very clean and nicely decorated, this condo in comfortable and inviting with plenty of room to cook and hang out including a great outdoor deck space. The owners were very helpful and provided a wonderful list of recommended sites to see and places to eat, which we found to be extremely useful and accurate. We visited the week after Memorial Day and found the area to be less crowded with tourists and vacationers, so we never waited long at restaurants and always got preferential seating. If you're looking to stay in a nice, quiet neighborhood but walk to all of the vibrant day and night life locations, we highly recommend this condo as the best place to stay!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful week to get away! My wife and I stayed there with our son the week before Thanksgiving. The condo itself is very close to all of the action in Old Town, including the great live music, wonderful restaurants, and the parks - there was even a sidewalk chalk art competition the week we were there that was impressive to see. Everything was very clean upon our arrival and worked as expected, no complaints at all. Highly recommended!
