Property Description

Recently refurbished throughout in a fun, tropical theme, Amberjack is situated on Southard Street in the exclusive gated community of Truman Annex, very near Harry Truman’s Little White House and right in the heart of Old Town Key West; a great spot to watch the October Fantasy Fest Parade as it weaves its way past the front door. Amberjack is within easy walking distance of Mallory Dock, where the sunset is celebrated everyday: Duval Street with its shops, restaurants and entertainments, and Fort Zachary Beach where there is a beachside café and awesome snorkelling. In less than a 2 minute walk there is a deli/convenience store, Coffee Tea Café, Green Parrot Bar and Eaton Bikes where you can hire bikes daily or weekly at a reasonable rate. If cycling is not for you and you don’t want to hire a car, Pirate Scooters (located opposite the Green Parrot Bar) will hire you an electric car. The property does have an allocated off street parking space. Amberjack provides everything for a relaxing vacation. Fully air conditioned throughout with ceiling fans in all rooms. Downstairs there is a large living/dining/kitchen area and a half bathroom. The living area boasts a Cozy sofa that opens in to a luxurious queen bed with a ceiling fan above, two further comfy chairs, a Flatscreen TV/DVD, CD stereo, Ipod docking station and Wi Fi Broadband. There is a fully equipped kitchen and a dining table that seats four with two comfortable stools at the kitchen bar. The patio is furnished with table, chairs, parasol and electric grill; perfect for Al Fresco dining on a balmy Key West evening. Outdoor Grill. The shared pool is just 25 footfalls from the patio gate. Upstairs you will find the laundry area, with stackable washer/dryer, and two bedrooms, one queen and one twin (that can be easily converted in to a king) both with en suite bathrooms, TV’s and balconies with tables and chairs.

An awesome month in Paradise!

Beth stayed 28 nights on 2/1/2014

We were thrilled with all aspects of amberjack townhouse. Kitchen was sparsely equipped, but we managed. Living/dining area very comfortable and spacious. Porch, back patio and balconies were delightful day and night. The beds were comfortable, BRs were good and washer/dryer very welcome. Linens were adequate for 6-7 people. We will be back next year for sure!


Tropical paradise full of culture and charm!

Robin stayed 7 nights on 1/25/2014

Truman annex is a place we have stayed at several times. We enjoy the close proximity to town, restaurants, beaches and Mallory Dock. Love to walk and ride bikes. Our condo was very clean and pleasant. Simply done in tropical themes. We enjoyed the deck and electric grill and the closeness of the pool. Beds and linens could use an upgrade? A new washer and dryer were arriving the week we left, which was a good thing. All in all we had a wonderful time and enjoyed our accommodations. Thank you for the beach chairs!


Great location and a great place.

Jason stayed 7 nights on 11/16/2013

We looked at a few places but this place seemed like the right one. We couldn't have been happier. The place was clean, right by the pool and the pool was a great place to relax. It's right by the Green Parrot that turned out to be our "end of the night" hangout. It's only 4 blocks from a full blown grocery store. We greatly enjoyed our stay.


Excellent stay

I stayed for 2 weeks with my family and loved this condo. It is well kept, clean, and comfortable. My only complaint is they lock the pool gates at sunset.


wonderful girl's relaxing time

My long time friend and I recently stayed at amberjack in the Truman annex. She and I have been doing "mommy break" trips since our children were very little. Well, they are now grown, we are in our 60's, and we are both grandmother's many times over. Key West could not have fit the bill better for 2 still very active ladies who love comfort, but also some fun thrown in. Amberjack was perfect for us. It has 2 bedrooms upstairs, each with their own private bath and balcony. This was great as we each had our own space. There was the obligatory laundry in the hallway between the bedrooms (had to wash the sand out of our swimsuits!) The main floor had a very well stocked kitchen, nicely laid out floorplan. Plenty of room for the two of us, but would be plenty big for 4. The front door opened out onto the main entrance into Truman annex. Right by the gatehouse. Now this was great if you want easy access in and out of the annex. It still was very quiet, and did not have any of the "honky tonk" noise of the nightlife from Duval street (only 2 blocks walk away). The back double french doors opened on to a great private patio. Then just a few steps to the pool. It was nice to have a location just a few steps away from the pool. I noticed some of the rentals in Truman annex are quite aways away from the pool. My only complaint, and this has nothing to do with the unit itself, it is just Key West itself. It's the Roosters!!! Okay, I know everybody thinks they are so cute, but at 1,2,3,4,5,o'clock at night, when they are crowing right outside you're window, they are not so cute!! Key West has a ban on killing these chickens, and they are now a national landmark and roam the island freely. They are on every street corner, and along the streets. Yeah, cute, until you are trying to sleep at night. :-) But, bottom line, my friend and I loved it so much, we have planned on coming back next year. It fit us perfect. Don't think you can go wrong with amberjack.
