The 49 5 Star Reviews say it all. Our guests love to spend a week or a month at our sunny, leafy green vacation townhome. We have no application fee, no extra cleaning fee for our non smoking home away from home- and your free reserved parking space in your secure lot.
Flip Flop Retreat is in Old Town Truman Annex within walking distance of live music, entertainment, shopping, restaurants, and outdoor activities. Return home to the pool at your back gate. You will think you are deep in the Caribbean... and you are! You don't even need a passport.
We have two bedrooms, each with a bath ensuite and a pullout sofa downstairs. The half-bath downstairs, rare in Truman Annex townhomes, provides extra convenience and privacy.
As a guest in Flip Flop Retreat you have all conveniences you need to relax and entertain in style and comfort. Free parking space in secure lot close to your front door. BBQ on the landscaped terrace with the large new Weber grill, dine outdoors on the deck under the ceiling fan below the balcony or in air conditioned comfort indoors.
Secure wireless internet in a Non Smoking environment lets you relax with all the entertainment you need: Sony 46' TV with BluRay/DVD. You could even telework if you can tear yourself away from the attractions of Key West.
From the comfortable Adirondack chairs on the master bedroom balcony you might watch the moon rise over the pool in the evening or enjoy the sunrise with a cup of coffee. Our favorite way to start the day is to walk down Caroline Street to the Cuban Coffee Queen and drink their wonderful iced coffee on the balcony at Flip Flop.
Easy booking flat fee with no add ons... except tax.
We were frequent visitors to Key West while serving in the Navy. Later we vacationed in Key West with our children and found Truman Annex to be the best location on the island. We plan to retire here because of the magnificent weather, the entertainment, and range of outdoor activities. We live in Annapolis and visit frequently to keep Flip Flop in great shape.
Ward Anderson purchased this townhome in 2011
We wanted to be in Truman Annex because it is quiet and yet close to everything. We can walk or ride bikes anywhere we want to go. This townhome is one of the few with a half bath downstairs. We like the fact that Flip Flop is steps away from the pool and has a tranquil tropical terrace. French doors open directly to our outside dining area, the BBQ and gate to the pool. Our reserved parking space is conveniently near the front door.
After many vacations in Key West having fun and doing research, we found the perfect spot to put our feet up. FlipFlop Retreat is quiet despite the festive atmosphere in town.
Knowing Flip Flop would be our retirement home we started making renovations right away. We have added high efficiency air conditioning, washer and dryer, ceramic top range, and tropical landscaping, and have renovated the upstairs ensuite bathrooms and the downstairs powder room.
Plantation shutters throughout put you in the Caribbean.
We love coming to Key West from Annapolis to vacation at Flop Flop Retreat.
Our Family decided to vacation in Key West for our annual Christmas get together and we had he best time staying in Flip flop retreat. The house was spacious enough for all five of us and everything we needed (sheets, towels, pool towels etc.) was provided. The location is perfect. We were steps away from Duval Street and walking distance to Mallory Square where we could watch the sunset and all the sunset activities. Once we got our groceries at a nearby Publix we didn't need our car for much of anything. We enjoyed sitting on the beautifully landscaped deck and using the pool right behind the house. The owner was extremely helpful and always available. The house was immaculate, very comfortable, and decorated in a delightful Key West motif. We had a great time fishing, diving, jet skiing and coming home to relax in this beautiful home. Great vacation getaway !
Once again we had a wonderful stay in Key West at the Flip Flop. Ward and Kathy continue to improve the condo every year. We have stayed there several years in a row and look forward to booking again for next fall. We truly feel this has become our home away from home and even though it's a relatively short stay, we look forward more and more to it every year. Thanks for providing such a great place
This was our second time renting this beautiful condo from Ward. Ward is easy to work with and is attentive to your needs or questions and he is always updating his condo. Beautiful, clean and amazing location ever! Pool is right behind fence in backyard. This pool is cleaned daily a few times a day. Shower and bathrooms are also available. Chairs are comfortable plus pool is heated, nice! We met many of the owners in the complex in our late afternoon happy hours. Beautiful furnishings, soft sheets/towels and very well maintained. This is huge since most rentals have thin towels. Each of the bedrooms have updated bathrooms. Each bedroom have large closets. We always seem to have laundry detergent and other items available. New fridge and dishwasher coming in the next couple of weeks. Just love the location to beach, a short walk or 2 blocks to Duval street which are the two main places we visit daily. Trust me, you will not find a condo like this nor will you be disappointed!
Rent early to ensure you get the week you want.
As we have come to expect from this property, it was perfect! After staying at various properties in KW, this remains our favorite! Ward is fantastic to work with and we would highly recommend this rental to others!
Thank you Ward and we will "see" you on our next visit!
The place was beautiful. Have stayed in many units in the Annex. This tops them all. So convenient to everything.
My family and I just returned from our yearly Key West visit and I am so glad that we have finally found the perfect vacation rental. Everything was clean and well taken care of as well as quite comfortable. It was a plus that each bedroom had its own full bath so that we didn't have to share as most other rentals in the Annex do and the back deck was our favorite spot to sit and unwind. The location was perfect, close to the beach, Ft. Zachary Taylor, the pool and Duval Street but far enough away from the noise and activity. Ward also made the rental process easy and answered any questions that we had in a timely manner. We have stayed at four different places in the Annex but from here on out we will only stay at Flip Flop Retreat. I can't wait to go back next year.
