Vacation Rental Summary
This is a great location. Walked to everything including snorkeling every day at Zachery beach. Stayed for a week without a car or bikes. Townhouse is extremely clean, maintained and well furnished. Need to add a few more dishes (i.e. bowls). Décor was nice but a few minor changes would make it great. Love the shaded porch. All in all a great rental. Truman annex very secure and quiet.
Key West Found is perfectly located within the Truman annex. It is a short walk or bike ride to Mallory Square, Duval Street and Fort Zachary Taylor Park. Also, all the appliances and the air conditioning system worked. The wi-fi network was not working when we arrived, but ahikw fixed the problem within 48 hours of being notified. That said, the condo is in dire need of updating. There are rust stains around the sink drains, stained bath tubs, missing cutlery, plates and glasses, chipped pots and pans, and sagging sofas. The condo, although nice enough, has the appearance of being old and outdated with bottom of the line finishes and virtually no room for non-refrigerated food storage in the kitchen. We would probably not rent this condo again, but we would rent again from ahikw and would want to be in the Truman annex.
Thank you for taking the time to review our home. The owners put alot of time into this home and I know will want to see your comments. The sofabed is only a few months old and there is a pantry in the kitchen for dry goods. We will look at the other items you mention and supply what is needed.
We look forward to your return.
We stayed in a condo in the Truman annex Foundry this vacation, and we really loved the location. We could walk easily to the Key West Bight, the Mallory Square area, the Hemingway House, Faustos grocery, etc. Even in the midst of all these nearby sites, it was very quiet and calm. The decor was quite nautical and comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped although not high end. When our wi-fi did not work, we called and they had someone fix it within two hours! The pool is quite small and doesn't have much sun. That was our only negative because we had hoped to spend lots of time there. The steps to the second and third floors are quite steep, so they would be difficult for older persons or families. We have used athomekeywest Realtors many times and have had great experience each time. They are accurate, prompt, honest, and offer good customer service. We will use them again.
My first experience with Key West Found was dealing with Lida from at Home in Key West. Lida was the best in helping me find the right rental I was looking for and answering all my many questions everytime I called her. Key West Found was awesome! We were there on a girl's getaway and there was plenty of room for all of us. From the minute we walked in the front door, we felt right at home. Loved the open doors and windows looking out to our front porch. Living room and kitchen were decorated beautifully! The kitchen had everything you needed. On the second floor was a huge bedroom with a king size bed and bathroom. It also has a balcony off it. Really couldn't see much sitting on the balcony, but it was nice to have. Also, right outside the bedroom was your washer and dryer, which was very convenient! The only problem was the dryer does take forever to dry your clothes!!! On the third floor (and yes, climbing those stairs a few times a day can get to you)was another bedroom with 2 twin beds and a bathroom off the bedroom. One wall is just windows, which lets all the light in and beautiful palm trees right outside your window! Key West Found is within walking distance of everything including Mallory Square, Duvaul St., the Harbor Walk and many awesome restaurants and bars. Truman annex itself is a beautiful complex to walk around in. I loved the tree lined streets and all the beautiful different complexes that you have a choice of. Felt very safe due to the gated community. Gates are locked after six o'clock and you can only get in and out with your key. The designated swimming pool for the Foundry was right around the corner. It was somewhat small, but suited our needs. After staying there for 11 nites, none of us wanted to leave! We will definitely be back and recommend this area and at Home in Key West to anyone! Thank you Lida!!!
Truman annex is our favorite place to stay in Key West. Very quiet and private, yet just a short walk to all the action. Key West Found is a great rental for two couples. Everyone has there own space, and having the laundry is great. If you have kids who want a pool, the pool for these units is not the best. Parking is close by, although a little confusing. The check in process at the rental office was fast, but lacked any explanation. Having stayed in the annex before we knew the routine, getting parking pass, where dumpsters are, parking, etc. We initially stopped at the guard gate to get a parking pass, but since it was before 4:00 (around 3:30) he would not even open his window to help us. Very rude! But still a great area to stay.
Thank you for taking the time to review our home. We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in this lovely townhome. Please note that the envelope you received with your keys had very specific instructions with driving directions to Truman Annex, a map showing the parking spot, etc. We will speak with the management at Truman Annex about the security officer and appreciate you letting us know about that situation.
The people at Home In Key West were great! Everything was ready and check out was a breeze. We had a wonderful time at Key West Found! No problems with the unit. It was neat and nicely decorated. Equipped with everything we needed to start out our week. Our only complaint was that the dryer took forever to dry clothes, but then so does a laundromat and we didn't have to do that! So all in all it was great. The location can't be beat. Safety, security, closeness to everything and quiet. We'll be back next year...if not sooner.
My family enjoyed the stay at the Foundary. The place was somewhat clean. It was nice to be so close to the downtown and the beach. Which we went to every night. There wasn't any noise at all. I felt very sercure with my family staying. Overall I would rate it very good. The information was very confusing as to where and how we needed to get the key. Along, with I had a question an called no one ever returned my call.
Thank you for taking the time to review our home. We're happy to hear you enjoyed your visit with a few minor issues. Please note we would have gladly sent Housekeeping back if we had known the home was not cleaned satisfactorily.
We're unsure where you might have left a phone message for us that was not returned. We make a point of responding immediately to guest calls, and have someone available 24/7 to answer the phone.
Hopefully, the positive side of your visit overshadowed the negative, and we look forward to your return.
We stayed 6 nights at the Truman annex facility, and it was everything we expected and more. Clean, great location, very comfortable. The weather was perfect all week and the Superboat races were great. The condo allowed us to either be peaceful and comfortable there "at home" or go enjoy the festivities of Duval Street. We will certainly plan for a return visit!
