We stayed at the home for 8 days with four adults and found the location to be the best for accessing all the key attractions, yet still having a nice quiet retreat when we needed to relax. The home is cute and cozy with a small pool close by. We did have to purchase all the necessities including shampoo, soap, toilet paper, and other items one may not think of so definitely recommend planning for this before your trip especially if you don't have a car. Would recommend to others for sure!

Slice of Heaven
Review by Kathleen M.
I call this rental "A Slice of Heaven" for many reasons. It's charming and artsy! The eclectic decor had me smiling the entire vacation.It is truly a hidden gem in Key west. Every room has a signature style, color of paint, wall paper and fabulous furniture! There is a tiny library with an inviting vibe and an array of books to husband read The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway (he was inspired after we visited the famous Hemingway House Museum) I read Gardening books and a romance novel. The house had all the comforts of home and super comfortable beds. We had coffee and breakfast each morning at the house and then cruised Duval street each night for dinner. The Truman Annex location was perfect. We like to exercise and were just steps away from "We Cycle Bike Shop." We were also close to Ft. Zachary State Park. We ran to the park and swam there most days. We even took a yoga class there. It was a Wednesday morning class called Yoga Rhythms. I absolutely loved the class and the husband and wife instructors were fun and energetic. The palm trees gave us some nice shade and a breeze as we listened to the waves crashing along with the upbeat music. There is a big sign at the park, "Yoga on the Beach." You need to sign up online to reserve a 's worth the $20!!!Every night we walked into town (just a short 1/4-1/2 mile away)We found a different restaurant each time. There was live music everywhere which was a major bonus as we love LIVE music and singing. Our friend Tom went scuba diving several times and was pleased with the proximity to the marina. He was able to walk there! In addition to the ocean, we swam at the MLK community pool in town. It is a big lap pool open to the public for FREE! It opens at 9am and the staff is very friendly. The pool is beautiful and clean. We went to Smathers Beach, Higgs beach and Ft. Zachary. Our favorite was Ft. Zachary. Finally- this location was close to Mallory Square, a great spot to see the sunset!
