“Great home, great service!”
Reviewed October 1, 2009 for a stay in September 2009

Thanks again for the way you managed the rental of
the Hemingway Home in the Truman Annex. When we
arrived, the keys did not work and your staff went
to meet us at the home with the right keys even
though it was Sunday.

The house was in tip top shape and everything went
smoothly and without a hitch. I'm definitely
renting with you again soon!

Best regards,

Frank Linero

“Do you like bed bugs?”

During our stay we were in a unit in the Truman Annex. This is an area near Duval St with the normal amenities. Our unit had not been maintained very well. The refrigerator was old and did not work well. The dishes were old chipped and cracked and mismatched, the pots and pans were very old, the silverware was new. The kitchen counter was cracked in several places. The toilet leaked in the front bedroom and the door to the balcony was frozen. Most of us were bitten by bugs in the bed and had to visit the urgent care for medicine and dermatologist upon our return home, we are getting better. The pool area was nice and the neighbors pleasant. Duval Street is always fun along with the other Key West activities. I am sure there are units that meet most people expectations but ours was not one of them.

“Quiet location, but still walking distance to all activities.”
Reviewed April 11, 2009 for a stay in March 2009

This was our fifth trip to Key West. On our past trips we've stayed at a full service resort, a Bed & Breakfast and two different condos. We enjoyed each of them, though there were minor drawbacks with each.
The Hemmingway was perfect, four of us stayed here and there were no complaints. It is a very well maintained and quiet complex. When sitting on the front porch it makes you feel more as a resident of Key West than a tourist. It is within easy walking distance of Mallory Square, the seaport, the beach at Fort Zachory Taylor State Park, as well as all of the most popular restaurants and bars. We plan on staying here again on our next visit.

“3rd stay in the annex”
Reviewed November 20, 2008 for a stay in August 2007

this was my third stay at the annex,my wife 2 young children, my
mother in law ,and me.The property was wonderful as always but
the air conditioner completely blew up the first night and my week
in heven turned to hell from there At Home sent a repairman late
the next day almost dark he told me and them it was unrepairable
and had a new unit ready for installation and had fixed or patched
this unit several times and that at home knew weeks before that
there was a problem,so i asked the company what they could do
and was told we could move over to the appartment part of the
complex in a unit two hundred yards from a comunity pool full of
partying people not appropriate for my family and not what drove
23 hours for so night three sleeping in my own sweat i had had
enough went to the office asked for comparable accomadations or
fix my air they did nothing so i rented from an owner that was next
door i met at our shared pool he was nice and salvaged two days of
our trip,after 15 trips in a row to the keys it is not as dear to me
now and even though 1 4th of my money was refunded i still had to
spend half my trip packing and unpacking and over again looking
for other places to stay pleading with at home over and over again
we were all sad, uncomfortable and ready to go home and for the
first time in our lives not planning to revisit one of our most
favorite places two years in a row <PS we are a normal middle
class family I really can't say more than this was a moment in our
lives completely taken and destroyed that we will never get back
and the air contractor could has finished this job while we were at
the pool he told me this and at home did nothing it's so sad I
picked this area on a prior trip and rented way in advance i even
went to walmart and bought fans that didn't help well you get the
point -read your renter agreement and try to protect your trip

“Lovely place”
Reviewed November 6, 2008 for a stay in July 2006

Have rented several condos at Truman Annex and love the location. This condo is by far the prettiest. Very spacious too! Only 1 negative. The second bathroom upstairs is very small - no space to leave leave your things or move around. It IS beautiful, however! If you want a larger bathroom, stay in the other bedroom! If you want to an elegant condo that's has a spacious living area with open kitchen and great for entertaining, this is the condo for you!
