This condo was fine. Nothing great but the location is terrific as it sits two short blocks off of Duval St. pretty much centrally located between the ends of the island. And the price was fair and the rental company (At Home in Key West ) was really terrific to work with. Also, the Truman Annex is a nice place.
There is a pool which gets crowded so you may not be able to find a lounge chair at peak times. The condo comes fully equipped with beach towels.
My issues with this place are minor and are not deal breakers. The decor is old. Like really old. The turquoise carpet installed at construction needs to be cleaned and really should be replaced. There were not enough fresh towels - just 4 - and as there is no housekeeping service you need to wash them yourself. Fortunately, there is a small washer and dryer available in the condo. The single beds are SMALL - better fitted to children than adults.
Keep in mind that the Truman Annex is a densely populated condo complex. You are really living on top of other folks and your balconies may be just a couple of feet away so there is no sense of privacy out doors.
Also, if you like to cook in the condo note that there is no dishwasher.
The rental office was accommodating in that the condo was not available until 4 PM - and we COULD NOT get in until 4! - so they allow you to leave your luggage at their office if you arrive early and then pick it up when you collect the key. NOTE: the office is not in walking distance IF you have luggage to move. Prepare to call a cab to collect you at the office and then take you to the condo.
All-in-all, my friends and I agreed this was a good value for money and had no regrets.

This condo had everything we could of wanted in Key West. With two bedrooms, a nice sized LR, TV, Computer, Washer and Dryer, Iron,Stove, Refrig. there was nothing we couldn't do. The pool is wonderful for both swimming, or just sitting around. It's close enough to Duval and all the action, yet far enough that you don't hear the noise of the night life until all hours of the night. Taxi's knew exactly where to pick us up. We could of had a parking spot, but chose not to, but may in the future. We definitely would rent this property again. The home was very clean when we arrived. The only thing I didn't like was that we had to walk 5 miles to first get the key, and then when we had to drop it off on our way out of town, the taxi driver charged us an astronomical price to take us to the airport. That, of course, was not fault of the condo owners, but it would have been nice if we could of left the key at the house, and locked it up.
