Overview

About the property

Quiet Beautiful 2BR king/twins, END UNIT Truman Annx Ground FL, Pool on grounds

The ROOSTER RETREAT is a lovely 2 bedroom, (1 king/2 twins, and queen bed) 1 bathroom SUNNY end-unit offering a nice OPEN kitchen, comfortable leather sectional, LARGE deck and lush landscaping. This end-unit is quiet, private being at the far end of the property. Backs up to beautiful waterfront for sunsets.

(Due to fire code ordinance, this condo is unable to have an outdoor grill, much like many other condos on the island.)

This sunny ground floor condo is very clean, and has well-appointed bedrooms with beautiful linens and art work. The extra large window in the living room floods the condo with lots of natural light not found in many other units. The new and open kitchen with quartz countertops, beautiful lighting and seating for four is stylish and functional. A washer/dryer are located within the unit for your convenience. The fully equipped kitchen, pots & pans, towels & linens and central air conditioning provide all the amenities you want for long- and short-term stays.

Relax at the Truman Annex Shipyard Pool - which is a minute walk from the condo.

At the Rooster Retreat, you'll also enjoy a comfortable leather couch in the living room with a 32' flat screen TV, secure wireless Wi-Fi and Bluetooth speaker for your device to connect to for music.

Rooster Retreat is within easy walking and biking distance to everything Old Town Key West has to offer, including Fort Zachary Beach and a one minute walk to the Truman Annex Shipyard pool. Our condo is outfitted with beach towels, beach chairs, a cooler, etc. We also have designated on-site parking, although it's likely you will not need (or want) to get in your car while you're here. We request a 7 night minimum, and try for a Saturday to Saturday schedule. Thank you.

About Tom and Marie

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

Why Tom and Marie chose Old Town

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Rooster Retreat Rocks!

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly located a couple of blocks from central Duval St. and an easy walk to many of the bars and restaurants. Clean and extremely comfortable for a home away from home and had everything we needed. Grounds are tropical, lush and well cared for. We enjoyed our stay tremendously!

Amazing location! Charming details and well equipped for our adventurous group!

  • 5 of 5

If I could give the Shabby Chicken 10 stars I would! We absolutely LOVED our stay at the Shabby Chicken. There were two couples total to stayed for a week. We had no idea what to expect and were BLOWN out of the water! The location cannot be beat. Seriously, it's so close to everything. Also, this unit is at the very front of the complex right by the guard's station. Just a few seconds walk to the pool, bike racks and parking spot. The house was perfect for our stay! While small, we never felt cramped or on top of each other. Marie had plenty of extras that made our trip easier on us. We loved the bluetooth speaker and took it with us outside on the patio and to the pool for the afternoon. We never turned on the TVs because we jammed out to music morning, noon and night! Extra beach towels, chairs and small cooler were bonuses as well! We never cooked while staying but found the kitchen well stocked for what we needed it for (a snack station and bar!). The bedrooms were small but there was plenty of space to keep our luggage and clothes in the closets. The bathroom was nice sized and the walk-in shower and upgraded vanity area were beautiful. We loved the outside area and spent a lot of our time in the evening and the morning on the patio. While the complex is pretty tight, we barely ever heard neighbors or even passed many people. We almost felt like we had the place to ourselves. We rented trikes from We Cycle which is one block from the house. We only moved the car twice for the entire week, once to go to Publix and the other to go charter fishing in Stock Island. The rest of the time we walked, triked or called an uber (never more than $9)! We loved having a designated parking spot and never had to worry about finding parking when taking the car for the day. There are many off the beaten path places that are just a block or so from the condo. We loved frozen custard at the Courthouse Deli, cocktails at The Green Parrot and breakfast (Lobster Eggs Benedict!) at Blue Haven. We took our bikes to Ft. Zack State Park for an afternoon beach day and some snorkeling (bring water shoes), but it was so nice to bike there and not have to drive or pay an Uber! There's a darling splash pad and playground behind the complex that looked perfect if you are traveling with little ones. The Truman Annex is a GORGEOUS complex well landscaped and quiet. If we are ever lucky enough to make it back to Key West we would ABSOLUTELY book the Shabby Chicken again!

We love “The Rooster Retreat “. It has everything you want in a vacation rental. The beds are comfortable, the appliances are all in good working order, a sunny

and inviting outdoor deck and most of all it is a beautiful and safe location.

Owner's Response: Thank you Richard and Karen for the nice review. I'm so glad that you found the beds are comfortable, and loved the outdoor deck. It's so nice that that our unit is at the end of the property, our deck is so nice and private and also quiet. We are so glad you'll be coming back to beautiful Key West! Marie and Tom

We had a wonderful time and loved the condo. Definitely will be coming back and staying here again.

  • 5 of 5

Nice, clean, easy to access. Plenty of room

for our family of 4. Upstairs neighbors were basically our alarm clock as they were not the quietest but that is normal anywhere, hotels included. Loved the ability to cook our own meals and also bring home left overs from our evenings eating out. Location was perfect, allowed for us to walk almost everywhere. The worst part about it was that we had to leave. Myself and my daughter have fallin in love with Key West.

Great Stay at Rooster Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Rooster Retreat for one week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The condominium was equipped with anything you need for a day at the beach or at the pool. The location is within walking distance of downtown and the beach. Marie and Tom were very good communicating with us before and after our stay. Due to the hurricane that occurred prior to our stay, they kept us updated on the condition of the condo and city. Our security deposit was returned very timely. We would definitely consider staying there again.

Very clean and very well stocked with all pool, beach and kitchen amenities.

  • 5 of 5

The condo is a great 2 bedroom corner unit, very clean with lots of natural lighting.

It is also very close to everything on the island. We rented bikes for the 7 days we were here and explored the whole island, all the beaches and found some amazing places to eat off the beaten trail. Would highly recommend this property and area of the island.

Location

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.
