Key West home w/shared pool and just steps from historic Old Town

Head to this fun Sunshine State home for an unforgettable tropical escape with the whole family. With proximity to everything Key West, this vacation rental is the perfect home base for relaxation and rejuvenation.

Located in the premiere gated community of Truman Annex, which offers a pool for guests, this home is only steps from historic Old Town. Enjoy being within walking or biking distance to charming shops, restaurants, bars, and museums. The best part is that you'll also be close to the stunning beaches that make Florida such an attractive vacation destination.

Before you even enter the home, you'll notice its white picket fencing, adding extra privacy to your getaway, along with the private pedestrian-only path past the front door. Don't be afraid of Sparky the Alligator - he's the stone replica who welcomes you in!

Venture into the home to take in its bright, airy ambiance - produced partly by the home's abundant french doors. The living room includes a couch and two recliners, great spaces for an afternoon nap. There's also a large flatscreen TV in this space, so plan a family movie night and choose a DVD from the home's movie library. Or, find a classic on cable or stream with the WiFi.

With its white cabinetry and stainless steel appliances, this home's kitchen is spacious and offers an unobstructed view of the living room. Don't miss out on the family conversation just because you're preparing a delicious meal - talk freely thanks to the open floor plan. You'll appreciate not having to do the dishes later on - you can just let the dishwasher do the work for you.

Gather around the nearby dining table for four to bond over a family meal, or change it up a bit and eat at the four-person table on the patio. The patio area also boasts a gas grill, so on breezy evenings, plan to grill up some burgers for a vacation barbecue.

This two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom home sleeps up to five guests. Both bedrooms are located upstairs and feature flatscreen TVs. The master bedroom, which boasts an en suite bathroom, includes a double bed and access to the balcony, where you can relax on the Margaritaville Adirondack chairs and soak up some vitamin D. The second bedroom contains plenty of natural lighting and two twin beds and an en suite bathroom.

The master bathroom features a stone-tiled shower while the guest bathroom has its own full bath. A stacked washer and dryer is located in the hall closet, so you can keep your packing fresh.

The Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center is just around the corner from this home. Featuring more than 6,000-square-feet of interactive exhibits to showcase the native plants and animals of the Keys, this free venue is great for the kids in the family. Another spot to visit to learn about Key West history and culture is the Shipwreck Museum, which uses actors, films, and actual artifacts to detail the 1985 rediscovery of the wrecked vessel Isaac Allerton.

Explore the area's beautiful reef barrier by booking a glass-bottom boat trip. You can also book a sunset cruise to capture the amazing landscape of this South Florida town.

See what all the hype of Key West is about for yourself, and book this home now. We assure you that the hype isn't exaggerated.

Wonderful rental.
Cassandra B. March 2017
Driving into the Annex the first time with my three young kids (8,6,3), I was a little worried that the tightly-spaced homes might not be the best situation for us. I was wrong!! Every person we met there was so kind, our porch neighbors were wonderfully helpful and people we are looking forward to meeting in Key West again someday. Our kids were welcome there and we had an amazing time. The pool was great and we spent every day splitting our time poolside, beachside, eating amazing food either at our place or out at great restaurants, and doing any number of fun Key West activities. We rode our bikes everywhere together--to cafe con leche, amazing donuts, the playground, the grocery, the beach, sunset celebration at Mallory square, the aquarium, the Butterfly Conservatory. This home is perfectly situated to maximize any person's Key West vacation. Highly recommend.

Great location!!
Elizabeth C. February 2017
Amenities were great, but added fees would make this a no-go for a second stay. It was almost $2000 for three nights.
Paul K. December 2016
The location is really good for access to the state park beach and fort and to the main streets.
Edyth M. November 2016
