About Patty

Originally from the Chicago area, we moved to Key West from St. Louis. We used to visit sunny Key West quite often on vacations and knew we needed to live here one day. We purchased the townhome in 2007 and lived in it until 2014 when we moved into a condo, also in Truman Annex. We live in Key West year round so we are here to answer renter's questions or help in any way we can.

Patty purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Patty chose Key West

We fell in love with the location of this charming townhome in Truman Annex. We also liked that it was an end unit and the extra windows brought in lots of natural light. Also the shared pool is conveniently located right out the back deck gate. We appreciated being able to walk or ride our bikes to the beach, restaurants, the Tropic Cinema, friend's homes and almost everywhere on the island.

What makes this townhome unique

While we lived in the townhome we renovated the kitchen adding granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. We also renovated both bathrooms and added glass doors to both showers. One of our favorite additions was adding Caribbean style plantation shutters throughout the home. We also loved opening the two sets of French doors on the first floor and enjoying the view of the tropical landscaping. We felt very lucky to be living in Paradise!

Fantastic accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed our stay! Very comfortable for 2 couples with many amenities. Convenient location to Duval Street, great restaurants and the Zachary Taylor state park. Could not have picked a better location in a quiet, relaxing neighborhood. Owner was great to work with and more than accommodating. Two thumbs up!

Amazing. We love Starfish!!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Star Fish later in the day on Saturday afternnon and it was everything we imagined it would be.

The booking for this unit is very easy and the owner, Patty was in touch with me right away. She was very helpful all along the way and contacted me when the unit was ready for us.

A great spot for two couples with all the amenities you would expect in any home. Great back porch right across from the pool and easy access to Southard St and the Green Parrot.

We loved the walk to Mallory Square the back way past the Little White House.

The townhouse gave us the feeling we were home and not in a hotel. Clean Clean Clean!!!!!!!

Covered parking if you have a car too. We will definitely go back. I am sure there are other spots closer to the action of Duval but the Star Fish is just 2 short blocks away from Margaritaville but far enough for the quiet, relaxation of Key West. Easy walk to Fort Zachery Taylor and the Ingham CGC.

Can not wait to return to the little gem!!!!!! Highly recommended.

Awesome House, You will not be disappointed!!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house with our friends for a week vacation. The house was exactly as described and a perfect fit for our stay. The house is very clean and well maintained. The kitchen is well updated and has everything needed if you wanted to safe a few dollars and cook. There is even a nice grill on the back patio that we used a couple times. Both bedrooms are set up very well and have their very own deck for if you want to sit out and drink your coffee. And since there are 2 separate bathrooms, it makes it convenient for 2 couples. The location was perfect with easy access to Duvall Street or Ft. Zachary. Patty was awesome with communicating with me in regards to getting booked for our stay and when the unit was ready to occupy. I had asked Patty if there was a gallon sized pitcher in the unit as my wife and I like to make ice tea. Patty went out and bought one so we had it to use. It was very nice to rent from an owner that takes pride in their home and will do their best to ensure their tenants are well taken care of. I will definitely want to rent from Patty again the next time I plan a trip to Key West. Thank you for sharing your house with us.

Patty was a gracious host. The house was well equipped with all our needs. She checked in with us to insure all was well and offered assistance if we needed it. Thank you for providing our vacation home this year.

Sincerely,

Nicole

STARFISH RENTAL

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in 5 units in Truman Annex and the STARFISH was absolutely the best. Can't say enough about how well equipped and clean it was. The owners went above and beyond to make their guests most comfortable, like being home. Definitely a 5 star unit.

Love it!!

  • 5 of 5

From booking to checking out, it was a wonderful experience. Owners were extremely easy to work with and they went over and above with amenities. The place was perfect. It is a beautiful condo. Very comfortable, extremely clean, steps from the pool (which was also well kept) and a short walk to everything. Parking spot was also convenient. We liked the entire complex and felt very safe. We tried to book again for March but apparently we aren't the only people that like their place. We highly recommend the condo and the owners.

Key West is an island so there are many water sports available such as boating (power or sail), fishing, jet skiing, parasailing, kite sailing, wind surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding (my new favorite water sport), diving and snorkeling. You can walk to many of these activities from our townhome and some tour operations offer a pick up and drop off service. It's a short walk to our favorite beach at Fort Zachary State Park. The beach is very relaxing offering a concession, chairs and umbrellas, picnic tables, grills, snorkeling, shade trees and a fort to explore. Because our townhome is close to Duval Street you can also walk to a variety of restaurants and bars and many offer free entertainment. Many of the restaurants offer outdoor seating so ask for a sidewalk table so you can 'people watch'. One of our favorite places for Happy Hour is The Green Parrot Bar, the oldest bar on the island and only 1 block away. Try Sound Check at 5:30 on Friday and Sunday to hear some free and fantastic live bands. Also, walk to numerous shops and galleries. You can walk to two live theatres and a cinema (rated 'Best Cinema in Florida'). Many people like to rent bikes, our transportation of choice, and rentals are available one block away. Bikes are a great way to see the whole island which is only 2 miles by 4 miles. Scooters and electric cars are also available. If you would like to see and hear about the history of the island, go for a tour on the Conch Train or Trolley. It's a relaxing way to see some of our wonderful architecture and hear the stories that make this island so unique. We always recommend it to someone here for the first time. You can walk to historic attractions such as The Customs House, The Little Whitehouse (where President Truman would come to get away from DC), The Hemingway Home (home of the six-toed cats). The Lighthouse, and Mel Fisher's Shipwreck Museum and more. For a special evening out make reservations at Latitudes, the beach side restaurant on Sunset Key. It's a short 5 minute ferry ride from Key West and worth the trip. Ask for a table on the beach and enjoy wonderful service and delicious food surrounded by Tiki torches in the sand. Try to go right before sunset if you can. At least one night during your stay you need to walk 2.5 blocks to waterside Mallory Square for the 'Sunset Celebration'. About an hour before sunset a nice crowd gathers to watch street performers, check out the local art booths, and enjoy drinks and snacks. Make sure to say hello to Popcorn Joe and try some of the best popcorn ever! Bring your camera to take pictures of the fabulous sunset and sailboats out on sunset cruises. You may find a week is not long enough to sample all the fun attractions Key West has to offer!
