About Jack Agnew
I'm a semi retired guy who was in the television and marketing/public relations industry and is now a professional character actor/singer on stage and I teach Marketing and Public Relations at a university in Boston, MA every Fall. My oldest daughter was married here in Key West and it's a special place for me as I hope it will be for you.
Jack Agnew purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Jack Agnew chose Old Town
I always had TAE (Truman Annex envy) when my two daughters and I were visitors and renters in Key West. I vowed I'd live here one day and when I sold my public relations firm in 1999, I bought a small two bedroom,one bath condo and five years later this much larger two bedroom, two bathroom cottage. I am in Key West at least six months a year and rent out my home when I am not in town.
What makes this Cottage unique
A Touch of Bermuda in Key West is my 'friend with benefits' as everything I want to see or do is within walking or biking distance. You have a pass to the nearby Ft. Zach beach and Alexa to give you the temperature and restaurant suggestions. One couldn't ask for more.
This is my personal home.

Slice of Heaven in Key West
The location in Key West is perfect for walking to restaurants, shopping, and the beach. The Truman Annex is truly the best location in Key West, with Duval only 2 blocks away. The owner was very easy to work with, and quickly answered any questions we had. The cottage had a great layout with plenty of privacy & comfort. Beautiful garden, great location and safe environment makes the perfect spot! We hope to return in the not too distant future. Thank you ... Jack for sharing your piece of paradise with our family!
Location, location! Quiet retreat, yet close to everything.
Great location in Truman Annex, beautiful area for any outdoor activity including quiet sunsets. Family and pet friendly with open parks, beach access, pool area. Quiet, yet in the heart of Key West. Close to great food and plenty of entertainment. A most pleasureable experience from booking, planning, to exiting. Looking forward to future trips.
I am always humbled when a guest gives my vacation home a good review. I know this is corny but I do always think of the Golden Rule..."Do onto other...." I travel a lot myself and note when an owner goes out of his or her way to make my visit as good as it can be. I feel that same obligation. They are spending money and time for a vacation and I am a partner in the process to do my best to have them enjoy the stay to the max. These particular guests were terrific and I do hope they return.
I absolutely loved this home and the area. When we first arrived there were little issues, but the owner and staff were on top of it and got it all resolved quickly. It was clean and very inviting. I will definitely stay here again in the future!!!
Every owner of vacation property hopes to have guests like these folk. There were a couple of surprise issues and these terrific people were laid back, professional and relaxed while the fixes were addressed. They took very good care of my home and I do hope they return.
Fantastic place to stay in Key West
Jack’s place was perfect for our group of 5. Spacious, comfortable, beautifully decorated and in an ideal location. Jack was a pleasure to do business with and to get to know. Looking forward to a return visit.
Gee, one never knows how to react to such a good review. I try to make my place a vacation home away from home but the real world of Key West can sometimes bring a balky toilet or fridge, rain during the prime of a day and still these guests looked at the glass half full. I welcome such folk.
A Touch of Bermuda is a Wonderful Cottage
My husband, George (our beagle) and myself absolutely loved this cottage. It was clean, well decorated and exactly the way Jack described it. We had everything that we needed. It was a pleasure to meet Jack and felt that we made a new friend when we left. We plan on renting this cottage again next year.
I think we have become a mutual admiration group. George the beagle has two super "parents" and it was an honor having them here. I am humbled by such comments but let me tell you what a dream guest is. Lura and Mike (and George) treated my home as their home. The property was spotless when they left and they more than went above and beyond. I would welcome them back at any time.
Everyone seems to agree that the Shipyard section of The Truman Annex is THE best place to stay in Key West. Duval Street is two blocks away and the best beach in Key West, Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park is about 800 yards in the other direction. Everything you want to see or do is within an easy walk.
