About Alicia

I love to travel and Key West, Florida is my favorite place to decompress. Key West has everything you could ever want in a vacation from relaxation and beautiful views to the busyness and excitement of Duval. I love that I can have a relaxing day at home or head out to Duval where something is always happening.

Alicia purchased this condo in 2015

Why Alicia chose Key West

I had visited Key West many years ago and the Truman Annex has been embedded in my memory since that first time. I love the safe, clean, and timeless look the Annex has and the location is the best on the Island.

What makes this condo unique

We have an ocean view from our balcony and one of our bedrooms. The other side of the house has a view of the palm tree lined paths. Its an enjoyable spot to head out for a busy night and is equally relaxing to stay in and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. One of my favorite things to do is head to Fort Zach Beach which is a stones throw away from my door.

Very cute and updated. Everything you need is here. Great location walking distance to everthing.

  • 4 of 5

Alicia (owner) was quick to reply to any questions we had. The unit was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our time here in Key West! It's a place like no other on earth!!

There is a large construction project going on behind us that created noise during the daylight hrs. Not sure when the water front Park will be completed. Would give it 4 1/2 if not for that!

Classy homey elegance!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 7th year in Key West Truman Annex Shipyard Condo complex.

We have enjoyed all the units we have rented but Beach Chic is now our favorite.

We loved that it was on the second floor so the light flowed through the unit all day. The porches,back and front, were so wonderful for morning coffee,.afternoon beer and evening wine.Construction was going on close to the complex in a new waterfront park...but it did not impede our relaxation.We look forward to seeing the results next year.

And of course the close proximity of Fort Zach Beach is why we stay in this complex..we rode our bikes daily for beach time and back around 5pm...Best Sunset views!

The bed was very comfortable.We chose to use the bedroom with double window for morning sunrise as well.

The decor was very classy Key West,.and very very clean.We rented bikes from Eaton bikes.They delivered and picked up.perfect!

The most important feature of any rental is the responsiveness of the manager owner...Alicia was great from our first contact in August till our arrival and checkout.Answering all our questions.

We look forward to our Key Vacation next year and will check availabilty on this unit first for sure.

Wonderful condo, we loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely condo. We were very impressed with the property and surrounding area. The condo was even nicer in person than the photos for the listing, and was spotless upon arrival. Such a relaxing place to stay in Key West.

Unless you are planning on going further up the Keys, you do not need a vehicle if you fly into Key West. Easy cab ride to the condo and bike rentals are the way to go!

We would definitely stay here again. The proximity to both Fort Zachary Taylor State Park and Duval Street was a huge bonus. Thank you Alicia for sharing your wonderful home with us!

An incredible vacation thanks to Alicia and our "home away from home"

  • 5 of 5

First, Alicia is a pleasure to work with; attentive from the get-go, she is responsive to whatever needs or questions we may have. That goes a long way to providing for a great stay. The condo is fantastic - clean and beautifully appointed; we are a family of four - including two college-age kids - but fit into the space fine for 9 nights. Granted, we travel together a lot, so have been together in some very close quarters, but this was wonderful, providing plenty of space - between the bedrooms, the living room, and two balconies - for people to find space together and alone, when desired. Key West is fabulous - so much to do, or not do and simply relax; Zachary Taylor State Park is wonderful and only minutes away - not a typical Caribbean beach with wide expanses of sand (Key West is a deep water port), but still provides a great beach, swimming, picnicking, and particularly - a terrific place to watch the sunset - which we did several times. Duval St. is well, Duval St. - craziness if you want it, particularly in the the highest tourist week of the year - but it was manageable. A memorable highlight was watching the drag show on New Year's Eve and seeing the shoe drop (with the drag queen in it) at midnight! So much fun, and the atmosphere wasn't drunken chaos, but rather, just super fun and friendly with everyone wishing everyone a Happy New Year. The Butterfly Conservatory is just lovely. Really - just rent some bikes and explore - there's is so much at your fingertips and riding around is a great way to soak up the atmosphere of this fun, quirky, friendly place. Tons of restaurants of every type. We enjoyed Siboney for Cuban, Harpoon Harry's for breakfast, Blue Heaven for dinner (but I've heard breakfast is incredible too), Glazed Donuts for the obvious, and on and on.... Should say though that another highlight for us was meals in the condo. We each took a night to make dinner - the kitchen is compact but everything is provided - and so much enjoyed the chance to be in our own home away from home too. Thanks Alicia for a great vacation!
