Emma Street Is Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This condo is situated on the most beautiful street in Key West. The tall palms make Emma Street look like a scene out of Beverly Hills. The unit is ultra private (with only two condos total sharing the stairs). The deck overlooking Sunset Key offers the best view on the island for the sunsets. The pool is beautiful, and there are rarely any people there, so it is almost like a private pool. (There is no swimming after sunset, though.) The condo is well-appointed, and it had everything we needed for a week-long stay (including cooking meals). The proximity of the condo in walking distance to everything (including Ft. Zach Beach, Mallory Square, Hemingway's House and all the downtown bars) is perfect. Yet somehow the privacy of Truman Annex keeps all of the noise of downtown at bay. We didn't hear a peep from anyone or anything while we were there. One minor drawback is there is only parking for one vehicle per unit, and there are no other options around. Overall, though, I am convinced that you won't find a prettier more relaxing place to stay on the island.

Better sunset then Mallory Square without the crowds

  • 5 of 5

We visited with another couple and found the unit to be perfect for two couples. Plenty of room well maintained and clean. Plenty of sitting areas both inside and out. Great access to the Fort Zachary Beach as well as Duval street area if that's your thing. One of the better pool areas in a private setting we have visited. And certain you will not find a better private view to view the sunset each evening. Highly recommend a visit.

Great view

  • 4 of 5

The unit and sunset view is the best. The only draw back for us was, staying a month we had lots of stuff and we are 70 years old. carrying everything up two flights of stairs was tuff.

Other than that the property was great and if there was a problem the property manager was very responsive.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit and we highly recommend this property for a very special Key West vacation! The location is great and an easy walk to virtually all points of interest, a nice place with plenty of room for 4 to spread out, and a great view of the water also makes it special. The area was very nice, safe, and secluded. The owner was especially responsive and flexible - the Friday before our planned visit he was surprised to learn some roof work needed to occur while we were going to be there. Net effect is instead of cancelling at the last minute we were able to work out a plan where we could stay at a reduced rate as a compromise for the relatively minor inconvenience of workers equipment outside and some work being done on the roof. A great win-win situation!

Perfect place for your Key West vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfection location for our Key West location - beautiful sunset views, 5 minute walk to Duval Street, 10 minute walk to Fort Taylor beach. This condo's deck with gorgeous sunset views was a great ending each day. The two smaller terraces with garden views were perfect for breakfast or just reading a book in the afternoon. The condo was very open and airy, very clean, nicely appointed, and nicely furnished. The owner was very easy to work with. We were nicely surprised at how nice it was when we checked in. It was in a very quiet portion of Truman Annex but walking distance to great restaurants and bars - really the best of both worlds. We will definitely stay here again. We loved it!
