LAVENDER JUNGLE - Beautiful 2 bedroom 1 bath downstairs Shipyard condo for rent Key West located in Truman Annex, this home has a renovated kitchen and upgraded bathroom.
For those who don't want to climb stairs, this property is on the first floor and has a large brick patio and grill. Master bedroom with queen bed and guest bedroom with 2 twins sit on either side of the full bathroom. Well-equipped kitchen for preparing meals when you want to (but remember there are amazing restaurants to sample within easy reach).
Truman Annex is a lushly landscaped gated community within the historic district of Old Town Key West. Anything you will want to do is within a couple of blocks: Sunset Celebration at Mallory Square, infamous Duval Street with shops, galleries and restaurants galore, tourist attractions.
Steps away from the entrance to Fort Zachary Taylor State Park with one of the nicest beaches on our island and a perfect spot to view sunset.
Other amentieis include: WIFI, off street parking and community swimming pool.
Bedding: Q/2Ts sleeps up to 4 people.
The house is wonderful, full of everything you might need during your stay. Clean and very well kept. For 2 people is perfect, 4 people might make it a little crowded.
Dining room and main room are big, the second sleeping room is a little small and outside light is directly coming into the room.
We loved the possibility to use bikes (we have never used our car in Key West).
The position is very good, 3 minutes (by bike) from the sae of Fort Zachary and 5 minutes from the center but at the same time it is very quiet and were never disturbed by any noise.
The overall price for one week is really expensive if compared to what I'm used to pay in Europe. It is almost 3 times more expensive, but ok, it's Key West.
The parking lot was not in front of the house; it was a 2 minutes walk; you can park in front of the house while you unload your luggages.
Things I didn't like :
- there is a common pool and there were people who admitted that "they were not respecting the rules " drinking beer and diving or bombing. Not so disturbing for me, but I don't understand the sense of rules if they are not respected.
- the "check-in" procedure is not at all simple: keys have to be picked up in Truman Av, while parking permit is given at the entrace of Truman Annex (and explaining how to reach it is too much stress for the "check in guy". He simply said "use the GPS" and we got lost). You can check in after 2.00 PM but have time only till 4.00 PM to get your parking permit with the official procedure... A little more flexibility? On the other side the security boy at Truman Annex was really nice and helpful and gave us the parking permit even if we were 5 minutes late!
- we were kindly allowed to stay a little more on the departure morning (till 12.00); however I guess no one has informed the maid who arrived at 11.00 at our door. Anyway we were already leaving...
