Truman Annex is located in what is called "Old Town" Key West. It's an easy walk to everything in Key West, from the Mallory Square Sunset Celebration to Ft. Zach Beach to Duval Street (restaurants, nightclubs and shopping) to numerous Museums. But why is it called Truman Annex? The answer has to do with the unique history of Key West.
Truman Annex is a former Navy Base and is named after President Harry Truman, who had his presidential retreat at the Navy Base known as the "Little Whitehouse" (now a museum open for tours). When the Navy Base closed, the area was redeveloped as a 6-block planned community designed to capture the historic essence of "Old Town" Key West. Truman Annex now has a mixture of multi-million dollar homes, townhouses, condos, and even a bed & breakfast as well as the Little Whitehouse Museum.
As a former Navy Base, Truman Annex is obviously adjacent to the water. It is also a "gated community" with its own private security and guard controlled gates. Due to its ideal location, a car is not necessary (though parking is available) and numerous bicycle and scooter rental locations are available should the need arise.

I was in this house and this neighborhood, and it was a great experience, close to the best beach of Key West (Zachary park) and the house was exactly how it was showed in the pictures.

Beautiful Escape in Truman Annex!

This is a beautiful place in the heart of Truman Annex. Just 2 blocks from Duval so your close to everything, but far enough away if you prefer some quiet time. Very Relaxing Pool is a definite plus! The place does look like it the pictures if anything nicer. We loved our stay! We will stay there again! The Owners are just wonderful. This was our first time visiting Key West and We couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Thru the Week My Husband kept saying "Good Job finding this place its Great"! I can honestly say you wont be disappointed! Great Place to Vacation!

Loved the house and the location even thought the booking went easy. The owner was nice enough to let me bring my dog and waved the cleaning fees. After talking with him. I even was going to make him Muffins. But alas, I took one star away because after we left the house the owner called me angry because He Forgot He allowed me to bringing my dog. He said that house keeping was charging him $300. This was just awful to me. It took the wind out of my sails after such a lovely experience. I know he was exaggerating about the cleaning bill because I spent our last day cleaning the house and washing the towels. House keeping was left with sheets and floors. My dog only left a bit of fur on the floors. Once I reminded the owner that he told me my short hair whippet mix was ok, he did not even apologist. He only asked me if the vacuum was in the house. (Was I to mop the floors too. god knows the previous tenant did not.) As for the house when we arrived you could tell that the tiles where not moped and the sofa is dingy. I used a blanket I brought with me to cover the sofa and had my 3 year old wear socks in the house. Lastly I took the 5th star because the house is for sale and the selling agent kept (passive aggressively) pestering me with requests to show the house. Altogether putting the unprofessional behavior aside the trip was great the location was great the house was nice. Next time I will just take exit pic. to cover my ass. And make sure the owners signs off on the dog not just trust he will remember me :( Its just too bad that the owner is so far removed from his property. Even the selling agent said "he always says he is coming to town" and that he lives close, but that is not the case. I guess that's way he is selling.
Key West Vacation

We stayed in the Poolside Paradise property. It was very well equipped and beautiful decor. It was a little on the small side but we weren't there much except to sleep. Very nice patio and pool was great. A little far from Duval St for my ability to walk, But others were fine with it. We would come back. Excellent staff that were very helpful.

We loved Truman's Annex. It was convenient to everything and a really nice gated community. We had two teenage girls with us and felt comfortable letting them explore on their own. Our only complaint was with the rental maintenance crew. Our toilet was not working the first night we were there and they told us you broke it you pay to fix it. We had just arrived!!! My husband ended up fixing it himself. We also had air conditioning problems which they did show up for but it was very warm a couple of nights sleeping.

Our vacation was perfect and I owe this all to the location of this amazing town home. The home itself was modern, immaculate, equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Pool was a couple of feet away and the beach nearby happened to be our favorite on Key West. You felt as if you were on a lush carribean island while at home and 2 short blocks away your smack dab in the middle of the nightlife Key West is famous for. Thanks Dale for your home and all the help you gave us. Would definitely go back!

What a wonderful time! The Truman Annex is filled with wonderful homes, quietness when ya wanna get away from the night life,and within walking distance of everything!! And I do mean everything...Our townhouse was exactly as described and pet friendly too!! But August is also a very hot month to go!! Soo pedi cabs are also a great way to get around. But what ever the month or season or event in key west...you can never go wrong with the Truman Annex!! Jack is a wonderful personal to deal with! And this couple and their pup will certainly be back to this charming place!

Our stay in Key West was great. House location made it a breeze to walk everywhere. The pool was nice and close. The house was wonderful and exceeded our expectations. Only thing I would suggest is an outdoor house to clean the back deck off.
Wonderful place to stay!

The townhome was prefect. Two lovely bedrooms. Laundry upstairs. Great patio. Everything you could want. Pool near by. Nice neighborhood. Very quiet. Everything was within walking distance. The owners sent us a great list of what to do, where to go and what to see. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Cute place in Truman Annex

The description of this unit matched with what we found when we checked in. The unit was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was adequate but cooking a meal presented a challenge with the limited utensils and cookware.

Nice two bedroom unit,very well maintained and great location. Truman Annex grounds are well maintaned and very quite considering your only two blocks from Duval Street. Would highly recommend to stay at any rental location in Truman Annex. No more hotels for family when we return to Key West.

We really enjoyed our stay at this wonderful Truman Annex condo. The location is very good - within a short walking distance to Duval Street and Mallory Square. We also enjoyed sipping coffee and cocktails on the patio and decks. The pool is great and just around the corner. The accomodations exceeded our expectations and we would recommend this place to anyone looking for a clean, well equipped place to stay in a bulls eye location!

Great Townhouse - Great Location
September 12, 2010
The townhome was located in a central part of the very historic Truman Annex and within walking distance to almost everything. The unit was spacious and updated. The shared pool was just a short distance away. Everything you could need or want in a home away from home. I would highly recommend this property. The owner was also great to deal with.

great location, comfortable condo

it would be hard to find a better location in the old town of key west, steps away from Duval Street and Fort Zach beach, convenient bike/scooter rentals, market, yet quiet and in a quaint development. apartment is clean and great for a couple, two couples or a small family. only one tiny complaint: there is a ridiculously limited selection of cookware and they should provide dishwasher soap. who's going to buy dishwasher soap to use only once?

Beautiful and well kept house in an ideal location!!! Couldn't have asked for a more wonderful place to stay or more lovely, helpful, and accommodating people to rent from. I would highly recommend staying here!
