The property was very nice, and location was central to everything.
5th time to Key West and the Truman Annex
We have been to Key West 5 times, each time staying in a condo in the Truman Annex. The location to Duval St, Fort Zachary beach, Green Parrot, and all the water sport and fishing businesses make this location perfect. New to Ft Zach area are a splash pad, jogging path, amphitheater and fishing off dock. We have never needed a car. ----- First the positives. The beds were comfortable. The towels fluffy. The washer, dryer and dish washer worked great. The kitchen had plenty of plates, pans, glasses, flatware. Large TV in living room and TVs in each bedroom. Great decks off both bedrooms and fairly private deck with table off living room. Pool is directly behind this condo. 2 blocks to Green Parrot and 3 blocks to Duval St. ----- ----- Now the not-so-positives: This particular condo had several issues. First was the lack of a grill (Nov 2018) that was stated in the listing. The location rental agency told us all rentals in the Annex had to remove the grills and we should schlep our food down to Fort Zach and charcoal there. Really! We told the rental agency that we wouldn't have rented the space without a grill. They brought us a grill! (Other rentals had grills) Second issue was cleanliness. The carpet on the stairs needs replaced. An attempt had been made to clean it as it was wet when we arrived. But it was gross. The showers heads and handles had black and orange mildew.
Great place to stay
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would probably stay again. Great home and very comfortable, with only a few issues that caused minor inconvenience.
Supposed to have a grill, but apparently it had been removed and the details had not been updated on HomeAway. This affected our plans for sure and had to find another place to cook all the food we brought.
Asked a couple times to have the 2nd bedroom set up as a king. Was still two single beds.
Wifi password on either the printed map or sent directly to tenant would have been more convenient than having to call the off hours number.
All in all, still a nice property.
Key West Summer Vacation
We enjoyed staying at the Sailor's Story. Great location to Duval and perfect size condo. Parking spot was tight having a large truck but we made it work.
Everything was clean and well supplied
Flawless stay in the annex. People are friendly and the accommodations immaculate. Took my adult children for their first visit to the island and it was money well spent.
