Boston brick pavers lead to the door of this four bedroom and three bath historic hideaway - enter and unlock the Key West magic of transformed spaces and tropical color palettes.

Enjoy breakfast, a dip in the heated pool, or sit and read a book on the cushioned chaise lounges before starting a day of sightseeing. The Historic Key West Seaport is only a few blocks away and you can book one of the many boats available for fishing, para-sailing, snorkeling, diving, or a sunset dinner cruise. Dine at the A&B; Lobster House or Half Shell Raw Bar; brunch at Pepe's café and catch a true happy hour while strolling the seaport boardwalk - or stop at Schooner Wharf for a taste of the old Key West. Any walk in this historic neighborhood will remind one of the architectural delights hidden behind white picket fences, vintage wood-frame eyebrow facades, gingerbread trims, and widow's walks.
Truman House is located on one of the most desirable blocks in Key West. This historic street and neighborhood have been home to many writers over the past decades - a tradition married to present day residents - and Key West Island Bookstore has a large selection of local authors with new and used titles. The nearby Key West cemetery is as quirky as the rest of our town; and, you will want to be sure to see the headstone, "I told you I was sick".

It was my son's senior college spring break. My husband and I supervised 5 boys and having them near the marina and a couple of blocks from Duval. The house had a great pool, spa and the gas grill made it perfect. We highly recommend it.

I, along with 6 of my very best friends stayed at Truman House to celebrate my 40th birthday. The house was perfect in every way. Great location, in a quiet safe neighborhood. The place was spotless with everything we needed right there and the pool was a great way to escape the late afternoon heat. I can't begin to say how friendly and accommodating the staff at Historic Hideaways was! Right down to making sure a few little gifts from friends back home were delivered as a surprise.

The Truman House was exactly what we hoped for... unique, full of Keys charm, and with plenty of space for all of us to be together some of the time and yet with privacy too. The pool is just immaculate, jacuzzi... balcony... so many great spots for a drink- or several.
Before arriving I wondered if we were too far from Duval, but no it was a perfect walk away. Many thanks to Tim and the staff at Historic Hideaways. We shall return!

There were three couples who stayed at the Truman House and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. The backyard was totally secluded with a beautiful pool and hot tub. The location was great. When we weren't lounging by the pool, we enjoyed sitting on the front porch.
I know no one wants to do laundry on vacation but what a plus having a washer and dryer to use. We can't wait to go back.
Extremely comfortable house in a great neighborhood

The Truman house is an extremely comfortable house in a great neighborhood. We rented the house two years in a row for three months. We loved the huge heated pool and the privacy afforded by the landscaping. The location gives you the opportunity to enjoy some of the best restaurants in Key West, all within walking distance. While only a few blocks from Duval Street, you are far enough away to appreciate the Island's quaintness.
