Unique Benefits

Our condo is very special with a large floorplan only found in 2 other condos. Truman Annex is a fantastic location in the Heart of Key West historic area.
You'll love our large front porch with huge front yard. The outdoor space is plentiful and multiple seating areas on the backyard with private hedges and lush plants.
Walk 1 block to see a beautiful sunset from the Truman Waterfront Boardwalk!!

Area Information

The Truman Annex is a coveted historic distric location - close to Duval St., Mallory Square, Zachery Beach, the waterfront for sunsets, and the Green Parrot - you cannot find a more prime location with these amenities anywhere else. You'll love the beautifully landscaped grounds, pool, and access to the waterfront sunsets. The Waterfront Park and amphitheater are a 2-5 minute walk. The Truman Annex is close to the action, but far enough from the riff-raff :)

Attractions Within Walking Distance

Within 2-3 blocks of all the attractions, bars, restaurants, parks and sunset by the waterfront and Fort Zachery beach

About the owner: I've been managing our condos in Key West since 2012. I like to connect with our guests and assist as needed. Guests mention how responsive I am to their questions and recommendations.

Why this property? The location is unbeatable, the condo is up to date and very clean. All new highly insulated windows and doors were install last month. We provide extra amenities such as beach chairs, towels, food cooler, stocked kitchen, nice linens. I try to keep our rates very fair and guests love coming back to our place year after year.

Guestbook comments from the host:

We had a wonderful stay at the shabby chicken! Marie was so gracious and accommodating considering we had to alter plans slightly because of Hurricane Eta. The condo is perfect for small families or just a getaway for spouses! My wife and I enjoyed every last minute of our stay.


Nov 2020

We really liked staying at this condo. We felt it was a bit larger than the pictures reflected. The outside back area was very nice and roomy with enough privacy. The front porch was great for people watching. Everything has been updated and there certainly were enough towels and things needed in the kitchen and room to unpack our clothes. Marie was great to work with. The location was perfect for walking to many destinations.


Sep 2020

My wife and I had a great stay at your condo. The set up with 2 king beds was perfect. The location is outstanding, close to Duval but away from the noise with 2 beautiful parks right at the end of our addition. We would definitely stay there again! Thank you

Perfect condo for our needs

Location was perfect as it is closer to the entrance of Truman Annex and in turn only steps away from Duval, Mallory Square and Truman Waterfront park. Owner's were very friendly, extremely responsive and provided excellent instructions for the stay. The condo itself was very clean, spacious and well equipped for our needs. It was a perfect space for "working from home" while mixing in sunshine and relaxation. Highly recommend and will consider for return trips!

We look forward to hearing from you when you can get down to the Keys again. Cheers! Marie
