We stayed at alluring Porches for a week over Thanksgiving. Our experience with at Home in Key West was very professional, much better than the rental company we have used for many previous stays in the Truman annex. We were somewhat disappointed with this property, however. Although spacious and quiet, it was not as nice as some other places we have stayed and it was more expensive. The online pictures portrayed a much brighter, more colorful town home and we found the decor very blah and tired looking. The dishes, tablecloth, area rugs, etc., just didn't have much appeal for us, on the plus side there were several nice artwork/pictures on the walls. The sheet set on the bed we used had holes in it, it wasn't a matched set and the bedspread was drab and faded. We were looking forward to the beautiful orchid lined lanai and the porch swing, upstairs hammock and chaise lounges. The orchids needed attention as did the other lanai plants (just our luck - not one was in bloom), and most of the outdoor furniture was too dirty to use unless we gave it a thorough cleaning. The coffee pot had left-over very moldy coffee in it which required sterilization before use. The location was terrific and we appreciated the assigned carport parking spot. We really like the Porter Lane area, especially the location which is close to restaurants, shops, Duval Street, Mallory Square and other great spots in Key West. This would be a great place to stay with some minor updates and appointments. Read more
Thank you for taking the time to review our home. The owners take guest comments very seriously and have updated and brightened up the decor as well as replaced linens. We look forward to your return visit.

Home was wonderful and roomy. Nice location. A few cockroaches were quickly relocated and all was well there after. Pool was nice and near by. A two block stroll from the main shopping area. Will definetely stay again.

Alluring porches is a beautiful home tucked away in the Truman annex. We had 3 couples staying in the home and the luxury of having 3 full bathrooms was wonderful!!! We all felt as though we had our own private space, but were never far apart. Parking is in such demand on the island, so what a plus to have a reserved covered parking spot. We will definately stay here again!!!

Alluring porches was just like home. It had everything you needed and more. The pool was well taken care of and
we used it everyday. At Home in Key West and their employees were very nice to deal with. I would not hesitate to book this place or any place they would have. Thank you so much for the dream vacation.

Our week's stay at alluring Porches in the Truman annex area of Key West was wonderful. It's a perfect rental for a family. 6 of us stayed comfortably. The 2 bedroom upstairs each have a dedicated full bath and are very nicely decorated. Each bedroom has its own deck, too. There is a small den downstairs with a pull-out bed. There are doors to close this den off, so it served as a 3rd bedroom. A full bathroom is in this den, too, so we all had our own bath. The pull out sofa was not the most comfortable. Our daughter and husband stayed in this room...the bed was not comfortable for my husband and I. That particular point is the only remotely negative comment that could be made.
The house was equipped with most of the main-stay staples you'd need to get through a weeks rental...so no need to go to the store for items you perhaps would need once.
I have no hesitation to recommend this property. The price is right, it's very comfortable, and it feels like home. The Truman annex is a beautiful area in Key West. Close to the Duvall Street craziness, but far enough to feel like you're removed.
I think the best comment I could leave is that we will most definitely try to rent this property again when we're able to come back to Key West!

This home was very clean and a great place that was close to everything. During Fantesy Fest we were only a block from the start of the parade. The pool was clean and very well kept.
We had a party of 6 and we had plenty of room for everyone.

We visited Key West with our adult children and their guests. Alluring porches was a perfect choice for us: size was ideal and atmosphere very comfortable. The house provided great spaces for visiting but allowed for privacy as desired. We were walking distance to most attractions and loved the neighborhood. This was our first online rental experience, and at Home In Key West offered the professionalism and comfort we needed to make this absolutely perfect.
Great place to stay, great location.

We found this property on the internet and contacted Gale Killion at at Home in Key West because we wanted to make sure what we were seeing online is what we were going to get and it was. Clean, comfortable and a great location. Another couple came with us and it was perfect because we both had master suites with our own porches. We would definitely rent this again.
fantasy at alluring porches
Left on 11/05/2009 for a stay in October 2009 | nussie
So three couples decided to go to fantasy fest. None of us had been to key west so the truman annex seemed to be a good place to stay. Alluring porches turned out to be an excellent place for us. Three bedrooms and three baths, all within walking distance of Duvall St. and all the action. WE had no car for the week. The condo is well equiped. It does have a hair dryer and washer and dryer. The orchids were blooming on the back porch. The annex was built with every bit of available space used for condos, however, there is still a privacy feel to this unit.
I would recommend staying here for anyone who wants availability to old town key west, but also wanting a place to get away from it all if needed.
A home away from home.

The service we received was mostly good. The only problem we had is when we arrived on a Sunday afternoon when the office was closed the staff failed to provide us with a lock box code so that we could get the keys to the property. We had to call the emergency number to get the code.
The home itself was very nice. Equipt with everything we could want or need. The location is great, being able to walk into town is a plus. We have used At Home in Key West for about the past fifteen years and except for a few small problems we have been very satisfied with the properties and the service.
