Description

This cozy two-bedroom, one-bath condo lies hidden behind wrought iron gates and down a winding pathway. The Shipyard, part of the Truman Annex neighborhood named for President Harry Truman, is Old Town's premiere gated waterfront community. The manicured landscaping, verdant palms, and white picket fences give the Annex a lovely park-like atmosphere. Don't be surprised if you see exotic birds like the snowy egret taking a stroll right in the Shipyard gardens. All this tranquility makes it hard to imagine that Duval Street, Key West's central artery of entertainment is a mere two blocks away.

The two-story white wooden structure at Shipyard has a condo below and above. Yours is above and features front and back balconies. Either is ideal for enjoying what locals call sweet weather, a cup of coffee, or that newspaper or novel you brought along. If you're thinking of a swim, a heated pool with spacious patio is just steps away. For your convenience and comfort, the "Shipyard Residents Only" pool area provides chaise lounges, high-speed internet, bathrooms, and shower. If you prefer the real beach, the sun and sea breezes at Fort Zachary Taylor are right in the neighborhood. At the beach, have a sandwich and beer at the snack bar or rent an umbrella and chairs to watch the world of swimmers, divers, sailors, kayakers, and jet skiers pass by.

But wait, you aren't even unpacked yet. Enter your vacation home from the front porch, unlock the door to your left, and head up the carpeted stair case. At the top you'll find a welcoming, fluid open floor plan that combines the kitchen, dining area, and living room. A door at the back of the kitchen opens to the front balcony and the living room door leads to the back balcony. The galley kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal at the stove. There's plenty of cupboard space above and every appliance conveniently tucked in below.

Next to the kitchen, the dining area provides a round, glass-topped table, colorful table linens, and four chairs. Sitting here you can enjoy the view out the French doors to the back balcony with blue sky and palm trees beyond. Or take your meal outside using the balcony's dining table and chairs. The living area features a bamboo couch, coffee table, and arm chair, all the same warm honey color as the Travertine tile floors. Colorful fish add tropical decoration to the walls. A "Casablanca" fan whirs above, circulating air throughout. In fact white ceiling fans cool every room whether you're using the central air conditioning or not. A corner-situated TV provides convenient viewing from the couch or chair. Need more seating? Just bring in the dining area chairs.

Just off the living/dining area are the master bedroom, which features a queen bed, chest of drawers, wall-mounted TV, and plenty of natural light from a large window; a full bath; and a second bedroom with twin beds. Each bedroom offers plenty of closet and drawer space for your flip-flops, shorts, swimwear, sunglasses, camera, hat, you name it.

Once you've settled in, the free-spirited fun of America's only Caribbean island awaits you at the Historic Seaport, on Duval, at the Southernmost Point, or at the beaches along the Atlantic. Check out the tours, museums, water sports, shopping, bars, and over two hundred restaurants, many with open-air seating, some right on the water. While your condo comes with reserved parking, you don't really need a car. From your central location, everything is easily accessible by foot, bike, pedicab, or taxi. Strolling Duval, you might find yourself posing for a photo-op with a pirate, a six-foot-tall drag queen, a Hemingway look-alike, or maybe even Jimmy Buffet in person.

When you've had enough for one day and head back to your condo to relax and plan for the next day, make one last stop at the Green Parrot for a little live music, a libation, and free popcorn among writers, artists, locals, and visitors. At the corner of Southard and Whitehead (the first and last bar on Highway 1), it's right on your way back to the Shipyard.

Average Rating 4.5 of 5

"Good and Not so good"

3 of 5

Rented a two bedroom condo thinking we might convince some family to join us. Did not happen. The lodgings were adequate to meet our needs, but overall unimpressive. The interior was furnished with items that were badly in need of update or replacement. The kitchen was equipped with a minimalist mindset.On the plus side, the bed in the master was comfortable, and we therefore got some much needed rest, the balcony at the rear was pleasant for a late breakfast, and over all liked the condo complex itself. We simply found this unit lackluster. Stayed at a private guesthouse on Atlantic Boulevard a year ago for less and found it significantly superior in every way.

"Ideal location, great accommodation."

5 of 5

We've stayed in this condo several times now. The location is great, just a hundred years from the World-famous Green Parrot bar and a few more steps to Duval St. However, it's possible to stroll to Mallory Sq for Sunset Celebration without pushing through the crowds, passing Truman's Little White House at the same time. How cool is that? The condo is well and thoroughly furnished, even chairs, towels and coolers are provided for the beach. We drive down from Miami Airport but if you fly direct you don't really need a car, everything is a stroll...just like life in Key West should be.

"Can't wait to stay here again"

4 of 5

I loved staying at the Shipyard. The location was very quiet but was within walking distance of all the action at Key West. The only time we had to drive was to visit other locations in the Keys such as Bahia Honda State Park. There was a full kitchen with all basic equipment as well as an electric outdoor grill. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. Some condos have wifi and some do not but there is free wifi at the pool area which worked very well. The pool is heated and is kept at the perfect temperature, not too hot or cold. I can't wait to return to Key West and stay at the Shipyard again. The only negative thing I have to say about the unit that i was in was that the mattress was in desperate need of replacing. There was no support and it creaked with every movement. If my husband would as much as roll over in bed it would wake me up from the noise. The sofa cushions have also seen better days. They looked fine but when you sat on them you sank down and it was uncomfortable to sit there for any length of time. The chair is the same design and material but it was supportive and fine as it likely has gotten less use.

"Wish I could live here all year."

5 of 5

Check-in was very quick and Tim did an excellent job at explaining the area and providing us with useful information regarding restaurants and activities. I really felt that he did an above-and-beyond job at making sure we had a great vacation. The house was clean and anything that we needed (cleaning supplies, detergent, etc) as well as information regarding the house was available to us. The location was nice. Most everything was within walking distance or was a $5 cab ride. The only thing we found a bit annoying was that the community pool hours were not followed by the community staff. Often we found the pool locked during the middle of the day. Of course I understand that Historic Hideaways has no control over this as they simply own one of the lots on the site. After a long day of swimming, charters, and walking around town, we were always looking forward to relaxing at the house.My fiance and I really enjoyed our stay. We're already planning to return next year!

"A great place to stay for a week in Key West."

5 of 5

Great location. Short walk to Duval Street. The condo is well equipped. The pool is well maintained; we love it. Can't remember for sure, but I think that this was our 7th time in this condo.
