FALL 2015 & 2016 CONDO UPDATES: All new AC & air handler, queen bed, king bed, bath fixtures & lighting, and landscaping
We both grew up in Ohio, met at Ohio State University, married and moved to Charlotte, NC. Ten years ago we relocated to Chicago. Living in Chicago is great, but the winters are long and the city is hectic. Visiting Key West allows us to slow down and really enjoy a different pace of life.
Tom and Marie purchased this condo in 2012
We purchased this property, and named it The Rooster Retreat, as a sanctuary from when life has you running around like a chicken, or in this case a 'rooster'. The lifestyle in Key West and amazing sunsets can all teach us to keep life simple and take pause when you can. The only rush hour here is the walk to your favorite happy hour. We retreat to the keys to unwind and relax, hear live music, eat great local seafood.
Our ground floor end unit condo offers more light, privacy and island breezes than others because there are no buildings to the left of us or behind us. In addition, our assigned parking spot is close to our front door, which makes for easy loading and unloading of suit cases, groceries, etc.
As new owners of the Rooster Retreat (formerly Holiday Dance), we keep the well-appointed two bedroom place clean and comfortable for your stay. Read up past reviews on the Holiday Dance to find out more.
This place was perfect for me and my husband. All the amenities and more. Marie was so helpful throughout our stay. I would give 10 Stars!!!
This 2 bedroom 1 bath condo was beautiful, homey, small, yet extremely cozy. The condo was stocked with many things to fit our needs from towels, sunscreen, and beach chairs to books and board games. This location is also very central to many places and just a few blocks from Duvall street. It was a delight to spend the week at the Truman Annex in this condo and I will definitely book again when I return to keywest in the future.
Just got back from an amazing vacation at The Rooster Retreat. The attention to detail and cleanliness in the condo was refreshing to see! Centrally located just off Duval so you're still close enough if you wanted to walk. The condo has literally everything that you need and then some! Very impressing in working with Marie, providing any and all the information that you will need for your stay. Will definitely be returning next year!
This past June we, 3 separate families, rented 3 condos in the Truman Annex. The Shabby Chicken & The Rooster Retreat were absolutely amazing. Both condos were impeccably decorated, cleanly kept, and spacious enough for family meals. Both condos came with parking spaces which was a plus as we rented cars for the drive from Miami airport to Key West. Marie was great to work with as she provided a list of all that there is to do in Key West and the surrounding Key's. Marie also provided great suggestions on where to eat in Key West - all of which were fabulous. The 3rd condo we rented which was not one of Marie's but was located near The Rooster Retreat. This "other condo" located in Truman Annex was not nearly as clean nor were the owners/operators of the this unit as accommodating as Marie. I would most definitely return to either the Shabby Chicken or the Rooster Retreat again. It was a great value for all the amenities and location. We were able to walk to the beach and Duval Street within 5 minutes. I would also recommend doing a Fury boating trip as we had children with us age ranges from 8 - 20. Everyone in our group loved the 1/2 day Fury boat trip it included jet skis, para sailing and tubing in the Gulf...great time had by adults and children. The Rooster Retreat & The Shabby Chicken are most definitely a GEM of the Truman Annex!!!!!
We enjoyed our recent stay at the Rooster Retreat (6/27-7/7). The unit was large enough for our family of four, and it was clean and well appointed. The unit was stocked with some cleaning supplies, paper towels, spices and condiments left over from earlier tenants. This was a welcome change from our experiencing renting houses in the Outer Banks where you must bring/remove everything you need, except linens, pots, pans, and dishes. The outside deck provides a nice place in which to relax after a long day of activities. The unit also provides a few beach chairs so you don’t have to bring them with you.
The Shipyard Condominiums are conveniently located to Duval Street, nearby restaurants, Fort Zachary Taylor State Park, and the NOA’s Eco-Discovery Center. The mile walk to Mallory Square can be made along the quiet streets of the Truman Complex. The Shipyard’s pool while not very large is more than sufficient for everyone to enjoy.
Our only complaint is that the walls of Shipyard condos are very thin so noise could be an issue. However, a pleasant chat with neighbors will take care of that problem.
If we return to the Keys, we would consider staying at the Rooster Retreat again.
After 18 years we returned to key west with the kids and couldn't have picked a better place. Close to the park beach with great snorkeling. Close to the Green Parent for drinks at night. Everything was in good shape and clean. Would recommend!
Our condo is in the heart of old town Key West. Enjoy a three minute walk to Blue Heaven Restaurant, La Creperie, Green Parrot, along with taking in the sights, sounds, and characters on Duval Street. You are a short walk or bike ride from exciting Mallory Square where sunset is celebrated every evening, or walk out behind our complex to appreciate a low-key, quiet sunset from the Coast Guard pier. You are also minutes from Fort Zachary beach.
