You can't beat the location, just 1 1/2 blocks from Duval and an easy walk to Mallory Square for sunsets. If you want it even easier, rent bikes and you can easily get anywhere. The house was very comfortable, easy check in and out. Would absolutely stay there again!
“Convenient location to everything!”
This was our first time to Key West and we wanted to rent a home-away-from-home with all the conveniences since we had little kids with us. We also wanted to walk everywhere. The Truman annex and artist Garden couldn't have been better. We were close to beach, pool, restaurants, convenience stores and shops. We did so much needed walking to chase away the winter blues in paradise. Everything functioned well in the house except for one drainage problem in upstairs bathroom sink - minor. We had lovely time in laid back Key West and will return again.
“1st time Key West, rain all week)”
Family reunite vacation with 28 yo daughter just out of law school and long lost traveling 25 yo son from indo and australia. Nice place, but think could do better next time. no outdoor spot to enjoy beautiful surroundings when raining i.e. grilling. need covered or screen porch. lots of mosquitoes so couldn't enjoy morning coffee outside. place beautifully decorated, however. Overall, for the price of 3200 per week, think should include at least 4 bikes and four beach chairs for guest use. We bought some beach chairs and some tubes for Ft. Zachary Beach, and were gonna leave them there for future guests, but, we never got to use them because of weather, so returned all to walgreen's sorry:)) still had the tags on them brand new! all in all, think owners have wonderful taste, and acquire rental folks that take care of their special spot. A few issues with rental company. Arrived at 3:45, 15 minutes before check in time. would not give keys any earlier. we were in car, pouring down rain, and tired. having left home from NC, driven from Miami. Where we are from, tourist location, Kitty Hawk, NC, someone would have let us in to be hospitable. We weren't feeling any hospitality on the part of the management company. Saturday is obviously big check in day. Rental office should be open this day? Just food for thought. Sorry if too negative. Just did not meet my expectations for a memorable probably final family vacation. Think weather to blame:(
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to review our home. The week between Christmas and New Year's is our busiest of the year. The turnaround on January 4th took every minute to be able to prepare our homes for arriving guests. Our office closes at 2pm on Saturday; a staff member then returns to the office to put out keys for the 4pm arrivals. We feel the same as you about the rain on that day which is a rare occurrence on our island.
“Peaceful and lovely home”
This pretty home was filled abundantly with lovely artwork obviously painted by the owner. It was a treat to be in Truman annex---the nicest part of Key West surrounded by beautiful homes and lush foliage. We were just a stone's throw from the Truman "Little White House," parks and beaches. We walked to most places though we did not find a good grocery store within walking distance and had to drive to Publix for most of our supplies. Best part of this condo was the living room area and the sweet deck where we congregated each morning until the mosquitos got us. Kitchen was nice but very small and could hold only one person at a time. Upstairs hall bath didn't drain well and the internet connection kept failing forcing us to reboot the modem several times. That was a pain, but in general artist Garden was a lovely respite for four friends who travel the world together.
“Beautiful House, sometimes loud”
We stayed at the artist's Garden for one week. There were 4 adults and an 11 month old. The house is gorgeous, lots of interesting art. Some of it we had to move out of reach of our 11 month old, but that was easy enough. The only downside to this house is that it's located across the street from the post office. It wouldn't be bad except the bedroom windows face the post office. Some mornings the postal trucks banged around starting at 4:52 am! I finally had to put on a white noise app every night to drown them and the roosters out. (The roosters is a Key West issue, not this houses's ;-) ) .. It was in a great location, easy to access all the restaurants, Duval Street and Mallory square. The pool is very close and well maintained. We definitely would consider staying here again, but if a different house in Truman annex were available not close to the post office, we'd probably choose that first. We would definitely go through at Home in Key West, though! They were wonderful and helpful. They also recommended using The Hip Tourist for renting baby equipment and it was perfect!!!
“Always an adventure in Key West”
We stayed here the week of March 2. We have stayed in Truman annex many times. This property was in a nice location, very spacious kitchen, living room and outside deck. Easy walk to everything. Only drawback was the second bedroom. The room is small and the twin beds are horrible. Like sleeping on a creaky cot. Hard to believe considering the value of this property. Rugs were also in need of replacement. Rental experience was very good otherwise
“Lovely retreat in quiet spot within walking distance of many of”
Our family vacation was great with this comfortable spot to come back to! The artist Garden is relaxing with the private patio, open space on first floor decorated with colorful art. Privacy with bedrooms on opposite ends of second floor. Would've preferred twin beds over daybeds for adult daughters, but it worked out. Both sofas are sleeper sofas. Plenty of bathrooms. Kitchen great too. The pool is close by and parking for one car also. Although we walked to many spots near Mallory Square, Duval St., Hemingway House, Little White House, and restaurants. Suggest using trolley, bikes, or car for beaches all close by, but longer walks. We used the car to go to the beach, Publix, and kayaking with Lazy Dog off Hurricane Hole Marina. Favorite places to eat were Southernmost Rest., Conch Republic Seafood Rest. & Bar, Kelly's, and don't miss Blue Heaven! Cute craft/wine shop at Wine Cottage near Tropic Cinema. Thanks to at Home In Key West personnel for your kind help over the phone and ease of our late check-in and early checkout! And to the owner for opening up such a perfect place for others to enjoy! We would stay again if ever return to key West!
“Nice place to stay.”
We stayed 10 days in house. Very comfortable for four people. The unit did not have enough items such as toilet paper and trash bags. Had to purchase those at store. The unit is walking distance to old town. This made it very convient to get around. I noticed on last day there were two bicycles on side of house. Don't know if they were there for our use or not. No mention of them. The community pool closes way to early. They lock the gates and you cannot use pool after sun goes down. Overall enjoyed our stay. If your main concern is beaches Key West is not the place to go. However if you want water activity it has everything you could same for at a price.
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to review our home. Please note: The bicycles you found are not the owner's; they may have been left by the previous guest. Household items, such as toilet paper and trash bags, are supplied in all our homes in limited supply as a "starter" supply.
“Artist Garden is very "artsy"”
I traveled here with my husband and two daughters - 5 & 9 years old. The house is lovely, just enough space and all the amenities you might need. The home is nicely updated with pretty furniture (the white couches made me a bit nervous, tho) and modern kitchen. A private deck & garden are a nice space to relax. The garden would be heaven with a hammock. (hint, hint) Beds were reasonably comfortable and linens were all provided. The location was convenient to walk to most places and parking was easy. The pool was very close, however, a bit small if there were many other people there enjoying it too...Another reviewer commented on the noise level of the postal trucks... I dismissed that review because I thought maybe they partied a bit on Duval and wanted to sleep in and since i've got a couple kids, I knew I would be getting up relatively early.. well.. Here's a different take. Yes, the house is located near the post office, and a bank.. and also it must be near some bars. So, it was noisy, not only in the morning, but at night also- Around 10 pm or so, you would hear the band playing from a nearby bar and people enjoying themselves at said bar. This would persist for a while (most nights). In the morning, the post office parking lot has a few rooster residents and they start crowing before the sun comes up and doesn't quit until the night. Lastly, there is a lot of art and portraits in the house. A lot> of naked art, and even a bit "racy" art. My daughters weren't really comfortable with the extent of the portraits and thank god they didn't ask one piece in particular that I feel would be better suited in Hugh Heffner's house and not a family vacation home. I wish that the rental agency would have told me that there was an extensive amount of naked art in the home prior to my selecting this property... But, all in all, we had a great vacation and I would recommend this home to my friends, so long as they knew what to expect..
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to review our home. We are glad that you enjoyed your visit for the most part. It is a tough balance to accommodate guests who want to stay within city limits of Old Town Key West, where everything is in walking distance, but don't want to hear the city noises. As far as the artwork, the owner of this home is an artist and much of the artwork is her personal work. We will certainly share with her your concerns of appropriateness.
“nice but noisy”
the house was very nice, lots of artwork and large deck area. The main issue we had was the fact that it was very noisy. The house is situated right across from the post office and there was traffic going in and out of the post office at all hours of the day and night. In addition the postal trucks would arrive around 6:00am. On tuesdays the trash trucks would be there very early making a ton of noise. All this in addition to the many roosters in the area made for very noisy mornings. One other thing, there was a lot of the owners personal items left in the closets of the house and it made it difficult to store our things, especially in the second bedroom, I had to move a lot of items from the closet to under the bed.
