A Touch of Bermuda in Key West

Rental Home -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Key West, Florida Keys, Florida
Envision yourself unwinding and getting into the casual clothes we wear in Key West while you look around and know you are in Paradise as our island is called. Then ask anyone and they will tell you the best place to stay in Key West is the Truman Annex. My Bermuda-style cottage is just past the picturesque main entrance on Southard St. and it is unique among properties. There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms on separate floors for maximum privacy. I have a pass for your entire group to enter the nearby Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park beach. If you have to keep in touch with the outside world, I have high speed WIFI. There is reserved and secure parking. Overhead fans lazily turn as you relax in my living room with paintings from my humanitarian trips to Cuba all around you. The colors are tropical with the paint I brought with m... Read more

Interaction with guests
I welcome interaction with you my valued guests. The booking procedure starts with a modest refundable deposit usually $350. Then the rent itself is due 60 days before you are due to arrive. You can pay either by Pay Pal or personal check. Check in time is 3 PM on a Saturday while check out is 10 AM so the housekeeper has a fighting chance to get my home ready for the incoming guests. The information kit I send out after receiving the rent includes the codes for getting the keys from a lock box; the code for the parking lot with your reserved and secure parking and the password for you to get on line if you want to communicate with the outside world. I include my recommendations for places to go and things to do + restaurants.

By the time you arrive, you will already feel like you are part of Jack's family. He will literally bend over backward to accommodate you. We have vacationed in Key West for many years but always stayed in military facilities. This was a welcome change....More

  • Pet cleaning fee: $75 / stay - Fee
Additional Rate and Availability Information
There is a 12.5% tax which goes to the county and the state and not to me. I do ask for a deposit which is more to ensure you return my keys and put the pass to the beach back on the fridge than I worry you will have a food fight in my home.

Cleaning fee is included in the rent. If excessive cleaning must be done by the housekeeper, I deduct that from the deposit. If I accept a pet, I am charged more by the cleaner so I add that to the rate.

How would you react when I say that my vacation cottage is 800 yards from the best beach in Key West (Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park) and two blocks from Duval Street, the main street with award winning restaurants, lively purveyors of adult beverages, creative art galleries; interesting tourist attractions; and unique shops? Well this is what you will have should you choose to stay at A Touch of Bermuda. in Key West
