Truman Annex House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Private Home in Truman Annex, Private Pool

Imagine being just a few minutes’ walk from all of Key West’s most famous attractions, yet in the peace and solitude of Key West’s most exclusive gated community, the Truman Annex. With Duval Street just two blocks away and the beach at Fort Zachary Taylor Park right around the corner, you couldn’t hope for a more ideal location. And while you’re here, your home away from home will have every luxury and convenience you might want. 'Avalynn House' has just been completely renovated, and has been meticulously furnished to a very high standard, with many one-of-a-kind pieces. Original Artwork is everywhere you look.

THE LIVING AREA...

As you enter this stately home, the first things you’ll notice are the 11-foot ceilings and the light coming in through the French doors and windows. The living area is an open plan, perfect for entertaining in the tropics. There is plenty of seating for everyone in your group, and a dining table that will seat ten comfortably. The 55-inch flat screen TV is visible from any place in the entire living area. The gourmet kitchen with its large central island and bar has been equipped with everything an ambitious chef would want to prepare that very special meal. Outside, there is a very spacious porch facing the pool, and a separate dining area under a gazebo.

THE LAGOON POOL & THE BEACH DOWN THE BLOCK...

The lagoon style pool is quite special, with two waterfalls and massaging jets built into the walls. The entire area has been lushly landscaped, providing you with the privacy you would want. And if you need to feel some sand between you toes, the beach at Fort Zachary Taylor Park is just a short walk away.

THE ACCOMMODATIONS...

The first bedroom is on the main floor, with a queen bed, flat screen TV and a half bath in the hall. On the second level you’ll find the second bedroom with two twin beds and flat screen TV. The third bedroom on the second level has a queen bed and flat screen TV. These two bedrooms share a hall bath. The first of two master suites is also on the second level, with a king bed, large flat screen TV, private balcony and spacious en-suite bathroom. The second master suite (your fifth bedroom) is on the very private third level, with a king bed, 55-inch flat screen TV with large sitting area, private balcony and en-suite bathroom.

THE AMENITIES...

Central Heat and AC, Ceiling Fans Throughout, Private Pool with available Pool Heat and Waterfall, Private gated & lushly landscaped yard with BBQ Grill, Washer/Dryer, 55 inch LED Flat Screen TV in living room, and Master Bedroom, Flat Screen TV's in all other bedrooms, Expanded Cable TV throughout, DVD Players, Microwave, Blender, Toaster, Full Gourmet Appointed Kitchen, Linens and Towels provided. Daily or weekly housekeeping provided upon request. Wireless high-speed Internet access, private off-street parking.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at the Avalynn house with our entire family, in-laws and all, for the Thanksgiving holiday. The home was so incredible and actually had something for everyone. The pool was just the perfect size for the kids and the living area/kitchen provided the perfect setting for gathering to either watch TV or just eat and enjoy some cocktails. The bedrooms were all far enough away from the public areas and provided great privacy. Additionally, the home was beautifully appointed. We had a couple of minor issues which was to be expected, but Shel from Last Key Realty was UNBELIEVBLE! What a guy. If there was an issue it was resolved immediately and he was always around to just make sure we were all happy and having a great time. I can't decide if I liked the house or the service Shel provided more!!!! I WILL be back and I WILL rent from Last Key again. We all had an amazing time and appreciated the extra special service.

This property was beautiful, close to Duval and the marinas. Shel Segal was our host. He was very exceptional at making his guests feel comfortable! We will definitely return for a second vacation at the Avalynn House.

A Fabulous Rental in a Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental was perfect. It was an incredible home. We hosted lots of friends and family for my fiancee's 50th birthday. It was definitely perfect. Everyone at Last Key Realty was a pleasure to deal with, including Shell who greeted me when I arrived and met us when we left to insure we were totally satisfied with everything. I highly recommend renting this house. And if this house doesn't suit your needs then contact Last Key Realty to have them find you something that suits your needs!

Excellent Location, Lasting Memories

  • 5 of 5

My fiancée and I stayed at Avalynn house the first two weeks of March. The location is excellent: just a short walk away from some of Key West’s best-known attractions, such as Duval and Mallory Square, but within a quiet, safe, and well-cared-for gated community. Everything is within walking distance, including a number of great restaurants. You can walk in one direction in the morning and watch the sun come up over the Atlantic and walk in the other direction in the evening to see it set into the Gulf of Mexico – how bad can it be?

The property is the architectural embodiment of Key West. There’s plenty of space, a sizeable kitchen, a comfortable living room, and a backyard patio with a ceiling fan. You can park your car next to the backyard entrance, which is very convenient.

The Guest Services Coordinator – Shel – is just great: punctual, helpful, calm, tactful, unintrusive, with a great sense of humor.

A curiosity item: one evening, a sizeable iguana ambled into our backyard and plunged into the pool. It didn’t seem to mind being photographed.

Beautiful, clean home--we will be back!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been traveling to Key West up to multiple times each year for the last eight years and we are thrilled to have come across Last Key Realty the past year and their beautiful, well-kept rentals in safe, quiet neighborhoods. We will continue to rent through them as we have had superior service that exceeds our expectations each and every time. The Avalynn House in the Truman Annex has been our favorite thus far. The main living area is just as beautiful as the images and a great space for a family or group of friends to come together. The home was well-kept and clean. We have had the pleasure of working with Shel from Last Key Realty twice now and look forward to working with him in the future. If we had any questions or concerns, they were answered and taken care of quickly. We were very impressed with his dedication to each property as well as our overall experience. We highly recommend using Last Key Realty knowing you'll be pleased from start to finish!
