About Michael

Native Washingtonians by way of Maryland thoroughbred country, now firmly ensconced in Key West, this condo has been our primary residence since our Annex house became a rental in 2007. We did so well with the vacation rentals there, we could not pass up the opportunity to lease the condo too.

Michael purchased this condo in 2004

Why Michael chose Key West

Harbour Place has only 62 units and is very exclusive, there is only one larger single unit than #217. Built in 1992 the interiors have become worn and dated which is why we have spent the last five years renovating every square foot. It is now the premier four bedroom four bath rental property in Harbour Place as well as the entire Truman Annex.

What makes this condo unique

We have made a point to furnish in this property in a manner that matches it's unique characteristics. The furnishings are not an afterthought or leftover pieces from our move, they truly reflect our desire for you to have a wonderful vacation.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Perfect place and location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property overlooking the water. Nice layout and plenty of room. The location is perfect, close enough to walk to everything but far away enough to be quiet and relaxing when you want it to be. The manager was extremely easy to contact when we had questions. I wish it was always this easy.

Owner's Response: I am so happy we were able to host such a good group of guys and we appreciate your cleanliness and leaving the place in great shape, so we could turn it for the guests who checked right after your departure. We look forward to seeing you again the fishing in KW is fantastic in the warmer months. Thanks for your kind remarks.

Your condo is stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with the accommodations, the view, the location and the owner was readily available with any questions. The 3 of us, 50-60 something ladies, readily admit that we are challenged when it comes to technology and Michael was so patient in helping us figure out the television. The beds were very comfortable! The condo is beautifully decorated and the kitchen is equipped with flatware, cutlery, nice pots and pans, coffee maker, toaster, ... Thank you for sharing your lovely home!!

Owner's Response: These gals were true southern Belles and a true pleasure to host. It is groups like this that make my job a real pleasure, helping people have a great vacation can be such fun. Glad to have helped with the TV and I hope to see these girls soon again.

Group of Eight from Illinois

  • 3 of 5

We love Key West and this is our sixth visit to this fun filled island.This is our second time in Truman Annex, a lovely place to stay to watch the military maneuvers, the ships coming and going, and the beautiful sunsets. We so looked forward to this week away in paradise. So imagine my surprise when I took my first shower and the water was ice cold. Let it run and run, no change. We called right away. No response from the owner. The next morning we were informed that the water heater was broken for two of the bedrooms and would be fixed on Mon. They knew this before our arrival but we weren't informed. Monday came and went. Tues came and went. Cold water, Ugh!! Thank goodness that our roomates were willing to share their showers (two were working). Finally Wed. a repairman came explaining that he and the owner had been ill. Understandable. However, there must be more than one repairman/plumber in Key West who could do the job. So for 5 days no hot water in two bathrooms.

The balconies are VERY small and did not accommodate our group of eight. One of the bedrooms is not connected to the bathroom and in order to access same you must go across the kitchen or the living area.

If we had been paying a SMALL fee for this condo, I would not complain. However this was big bucks and I am very disappointed in the service and management. I would not recommend it or stay there again.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that three of the five showers, the washer-dryer, dishwasher and kitchen sink all worked properly, while we were getting the new hot water heater. It wasn't a repairman issue at all it was a heater replacement issue, and being at the end of the road does have it's disadvantages too. As we see it their are different levels of response for each mechanical breakdown. Obviously a/c is the most critical and requires constant attention until resolved, or occupants must be moved to another location. An amenity like the washer/dryer or the cable service being in need of attention requires our first available service call attention. Two of the five showers being out requires that same level of service. The pictures accurately depict the unit, so be careful if your planning a balcony party. We make it clear that the ocean front bedroom bathroom is not en suite, again pictures don't lie. We consider those remarks concerning the balcony and the guest bath by this reviewer to be inappropriate and misguided in an attempt to justify three stars for the finest rental in the Truman Annex.

Outstanding place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here with 3 other couples for the week that included New Years eve. Michael the owner was wonderful, accommodating and very attentive. The descriptions and pictures are right on target. 4 bedrooms, 3 with King beds and one with 2 queens. The Kitchen and bathrooms were as you would expect in a place of this caliber. The condo is in the Truman Annex area. This is great location. Oceanfront views, yet only a few blocks from Duval Street. As well as Mallory Square and many of the museums, other attractions, bars and restaurants. No car needed. Would be happy to stay here again.

Owner's Response: It is gratifying when you hit the mark with a group of upscale professionals like our guests last week. We try hard to offer the accommodations that we would like to find ourselves, if we were on the other end of the transaction. All the while being as accommodating and broad minded as possible. To all those who are thinking of coming to Key West for a holiday, we will do our 100% best to see to it that you have a great experience in our place. Michael

Beautiful and Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

Celebrated my bachelorette/shower at this breath taking location. Could not have asked for anything more! Mike (owner) was flexible, accommodating, and available. The space is gorgeous with amazing views of the sparkling water and sunset. Everything in the condo is modernized, upgraded and top-knotch. We will definitely be coming back and recommend this to all of our friends and family. Thank you, Mike, for helping us create amazing memories and being such kind person. The location is prime as we parked our car for the weekend and walked everywhere. Access to the pool, beach, and nightlife was excellent. I highly recommend this property!

Owner's Response: I'm thrilled the gals had such a great time. I don't know much about other rentals (I've never stayed in one), so I am doing this from scratch with my standards in mind in presenting this space as a vacation rental. Judging from this review I've a successful. So a heartfelt thanks to all my guests, it means a lot to me that you have the best time possible.

Large, upscale, new, clean

  • 5 of 5

We had my 4 teenagers plus they each brought a friend-- so 8 kids plus me and my wife, and everyone slept in a bed with plenty of space. There were 4 bedrooms and one of the bedrooms had 2 queen beds so there are 5 large beds in total which was great. The kitchen and bathrooms are all nicely remodeled. very clean upscale.

The Truman Complex is a gated area that offers peace, quiet and security and it is very conveniently located within walking distance to Duval St and the Westin marina where we kept our boat. Only downside is its a little bit of a pain in that you need a key for the gates at night.

We kept our boat in the Westin Marina about 100 yards away so that was convenient for boaters. Each night we would walk to dinner and or Duval St and let our kids roam. No car is needed. Overall, clean, large, upscale, and perfect for larger groups (8-10 people).

Mike the owner was very responsive and easy to deal with. I would stay there again.

Owner's Response: We were delighted that the family had such a great time. It's nice to have hit the mark for an excellent vacation. We are constantly maintaining and updating the property to keep it in top shape. And the fact that they only brought the boat speaks of its location near every important attraction in Key West. Normally we only allow eight guests but do make exceptions for large families with kids, like these guests. It's gratifying to read reviews like this and it motivates us to do even better in the future. Thank you for staying with us.

Once in a generation a truly unique property comes available for all to behold and enjoy, and after a years long, total renovation with guest comfort foremost in mind, we proudly introduce the Cristol Condo, Key West’s most exclusive vacation rental. Where does one begin, the view, the location, the amenities, the immense size, the relaxed comfort of the appointments . . .

The view – no need to move from your living room to enjoy the famed Key West sunsets and the green spark, the condo has two, beautiful picture windows facing west towards the confluence of the Gulf of Mexico with the Atlantic Ocean.

The location – okay, cruise ships park right out front. Need we say more? Leave the car home; you don’t need more than bikes to get to every important tourist destination in Key West (you can walk easily too). Open air electric cars are a lot of fun too.

The amenities – just imagine tropical water vacation, Key West has it all. Harbour Place is within the Truman Annex gated community and has a oceanfront pool.

The immense size – Four bedrooms and four full bathrooms artfully ensconced in 2,500 square feet of fully renovated ocean-front condo. No detail was overlooked for our guests’ comfort.

The appointments – everything in this condo was purchased for our guests’ comfort, no old, hand-me-down furnishings that look ok until you actually live with them. We care about your comfort.

Key West is a "bucket list" destination for all of us who love the warm weather and a tropical paradise setting. This condo is the best spot in KW for a large group to share it all together in the perfect oceanfront setting in an updated and remodeled dwelling. There is an additional 3/3 house that is available to rent with this condo located only 500 feet away.
