Key West Casa

The Shipyard Condominiums in The Truman Annex

This conveniently located three-bedroom townhouse was renovated in late-2003 with painstaking attention to detail. It is located in the Shipyard Condominiums of the Truman Annex, a private, gated community with 24-hour security. There is a reserved parking spot located directly in front of the unit.

Located only 3 ½ miles from Key West International Airport, you will have arrived at your destination in paradise only minutes after landing via a very short cab ride. Connecting flights from all major U.S. cities can be found on American, United, US Airways, Delta, Continental and Cape Air.

Location is key in this Key West destination. No rental cars are necessary. It is a short 2-block walk to famous Duval Street and also to the state park beach. Visit Harry Truman's Little White House, Mel Fisher's Museum and the fabulous Mallory Square sunsets, all just outside the gates of the Truman Annex. Fabulous Duval Street shopping awaits you only minutes away. Savor the Caribbean tastes of local Key West Restaurants such as Café de Sole, Blue Heaven, Café Marquesa, Louie's Backyard and Alice's Restaurant. Cool yourself down from a long day of walking with a cocktail from Sloppy Joes, The Green Parrott, Capt. Tony's, Hog's Breath, Fat Tuesday and numerous other landmark Key West bars.

This unit enables you to get the most out of outdoor recreation and relaxation. Cool off with a dip in the community pool only 150 yards from the front door. Enjoy a warm sunrise while reading the morning paper on your comfortable front porch chair. Take a break from the hot afternoon sun on the backyard deck (complete with table and chairs for dining) or second floor balcony. These same two areas are wonderful for early evening sun.

The 2003 renovation added a third bedroom on the second floor, completely renovated the kitchen, and placed new maple cabinets and Corian countertops in both full baths. At the same time, the entire unit was lovingly redecorated by world-renowned Joanne Valentine of Naples, Florida.


The kitchen features solid maple cabinets with a beautiful granite countertop, breakfast bar (with two padded stools) and a stainless steel sink. All appliances are new (December 2003). A large refrigerator, electric stove with smooth cook top, microwave and dishwasher help to facilitate your meals. It is fully stocked with all the utensils you'll need to prepare a gourmet feast. Spend a day out fishing in the plentiful waters surrounding Key West and then return home to enjoy the fruits of your labors by cooking your very own fish.


There is a tiled, full bathroom complete with shower on each floor. Bathrooms come stocked with linens, soaps, shampoo, blow dryer and everything else needed to make you feel right at home. In addition to standard linens, there are enough beach towels for each guest.

Bedroom 1

The first floor bedroom features two twin beds and a custom closet. The window overlooks the front porch and lovely greenery.

Bedroom 2

This second floor bedroom is the largest of the three bedrooms. Two twin beds can be placed together to form a king size bed. There is a 30" television and a DVD/VCR player.

Bedroom 3

This is the newest of the three bedrooms added during the 2003 renovation. It offers a queen sized bed and television. A glass block window overlooks the staircase leading to the living room. The large, furnished second story balcony is accessible from the French doors in this room.

Living Room/Public Area

The living room/public area is comprised of three distinct but joined areas. There is a desk with chair for writing letters and postcards to friends and family trapped in the snow up north. A seating area features a full entertainment center surrounded by a very comfortable couch and two swivel rockers. The bar (with two comfortable stools) is behind the couch and opens to the backyard deck. Evening entertaining and dining flow perfectly with this layout. Entertain your friends or just yourself with the entertainment center which houses a stereo, DVD/VCR player, CD player and 32" television.

Backyard Deck

The large backyard deck offers table seating for six. It is a wonderful place to relax, enjoy a cocktail and even eat the dinner that you have cooked…OR ordered in!
