Everything as advertised and more. Immaculate, tastefully decorated, roomy. Close to Duval. Porches on each bedroom and off living room. Huge master bedroom with large porch. Large second bedroom with large porch. Den with sofa bed and bathroom. Very comfortable, feels like home.

“GREAT PLACE TO STAY”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I was a little apprehensive about booking this place because it didn't have many recent reviews, but I am very glad we booked. The price was very reasonable for Truman Annex and the place was all you could ask for. We had 5 adults in our party and this place was just perfect with 3 baths and 3 separate rooms to sleep. The room on the bottom floor to sleep could be a den or bedroom, we used as a bedroom, so the couch was pulled out and left for our entire stay. If you want to cook at home, the kitchen was fully stocked. We had a covered parking spot. And while we didn't have a private pool, it is just down the walk around the corner. I am pretty sure you can't go wrong with anything in Truman Annex...but we LOVED OUR CHOICE

“Okay, however we've stayed in better places in the Truman annex.”

We stayed at alluring Porches for a week over Thanksgiving. Our experience with at Home in Key West was very professional, much better than the rental company we have used for many previous stays in the Truman annex. We were somewhat disappointed with this property, however. Although spacious and quiet, it was not as nice as some other places we have stayed and it was more expensive. The online pictures portrayed a much brighter, more colorful town home and we found the decor very blah and tired looking. The dishes, tablecloth, area rugs, etc., just didn't have much appeal for us, on the plus side there were several nice artwork/pictures on the walls. The sheet set on the bed we used had holes in it, it wasn't a matched set and the bedspread was drab and faded. We were looking forward to the beautiful orchid lined lanai and the porch swing, upstairs hammock and chaise lounges. The orchids needed attention as did the other lanai plants (just our luck - not one was in bloom), and most of the outdoor furniture was too dirty to use unless we gave it a thorough cleaning. The coffee pot had left-over very moldy coffee in it which required sterilization before use. The location was terrific and we appreciated the assigned carport parking spot. We really like the Porter Lane area, especially the location which is close to restaurants, shops, Duval Street, Mallory Square and other great spots in Key West. This would be a great place to stay with some minor updates and appointments.
