Glorious Weather, Terrific Location

World Traveler and Frequent Renter stayed 7 nights on 2/22/2014

We enjoyed our time in Key West.This unit was okay. We rent almost every year all around the world.We found that 3 adults was the correct number to stay in this townhouse. The 1st floor bedr & bath were designed with one adult in mind or a romantic couple,since it was very tight room with queen bed,the bath was single vanity &tub;/shower. The 2nd floor bedr was massive-a walk in closet,separate bath with double vanity(two sinks), shower/bath, spacious! The major kitchen appliances were new but the coffee pot(rusted electric plate) and the toaster were not in good shape. Two days into our trip, I did talk with Compass Realty about missing light-bulbs in lamps and the coffeepot. I would have gone sooner to the realty firm but they do not work on Saturdays and Sundays. They said someone would stop by to drop off light bulbs and as for the coffee pot, I received a 'deer caught in the headlights' look from the agent when reported. We checked out 5 days later - no light-bulbs and same old coffeepot. If you plan to use the deck outside, you will be disappointed, we found it to be very scary. Overgrown bushes, the deck surface and table and chairs had not been cleaned recently or for many years, the grim was fairly thick and the outside area needed a good scrubbing. If you bring children or an older adult, I'd like to caution you about the lowest step within the unit's staircase, my mother, in her 70's, stumbled and fell, she sustained a few injuries but nothing was broken. We placed markers (two decks of cards) on the lower step so that she would see the step when exiting the first floor bedroom or bathroom. It was difficult to see the step, since it blended in with the floor and does not have a rail or post on the step. On the positive, the access to the pool was a few steps from the front door. The neighbors were very friendly. Truman annex is a lovely location and conveniently located. Will we visit Key West again? perhaps, this unit? probably not.


Very nice place to stay

Location is close to everything, no need for a car. Grocery is close by for stocking up the condo. Pool/spa is steps from the front door of the condo which was very nice. Price is steep during peak weeks.

New York stayed 7 nights on 11/5/2013

We always come down during race week and have stayed in the Truman annex numerous times and even in the same unit previously. We don't spend much time in the unit but enjoy the location and proximity to town. We really only sleep in the unit. My only suggestion was that the mattresses were a bit soft, especially the 1st floor bedroom (too soft). I have to give it 3 stars on comfort because of waking with back hurting from mattress. I gave it 4 stars on Value, because the rates go sky high this week and we always pay top $. When you're paying such a high rate it could use a little more wow factor or at least better mattresses. We appreciate the laundry in the unit so we can pack less. However, the washer/dryer in the unit was a bit old and got stuck on the start of the cycle. Especially with the airlines charging for baggage, this comes in handy. We will be back as long as the boat races are in Key West.


Love Key West, not so much this condo!

A Little Disappointed... stayed 7 nights on 10/21/2013

Our group has been to Key West several times and Truman annex is always our first choice for accommodations. This trip we rented 2 condos on Porter Court. Plato's Retreat is nice however we did have a few hiccups during our stay. When we arrived the fridge was not working and had to be replaced. Maintenance responded very quickly, however the replacement did not have an ice maker, which was an inconvenience. The first morning we tried to take showers there was no hot water in either shower. Again, maintenance was on it very quickly but still another issue. The TV in the main living area never worked during our stay. The downstairs toilet ran continuously. Lastly the patio was very messy and the furniture needs to be replaced. As I said we have stayed in many condos in the complex before and this was the only one that has not met our expectations. It almost appeared that the condo had not been rented recently but housekeeping/management should have picked up on most of the problems. The other condo our group rented just steps away from Plato was great!
