Vacation Home Rental Review - Wonderful Property
Spent 2 weeks at the Island Queen and it was money well spent. The property is well maintained and clean - both inside and out. The Annex is quiet location (except for landscaping and garbage day Mondays!). The owner, property manager, and cleaning folks were very accommodating to our schedule. This will be our first go to place again in Key West. Thank you Rosemary!

Perfect place in Paradise
This was our second stay at the Island Queen. The first was several years ago and we have made other trips but unfortunately we were unable to secure reservations because it is so popular. Key West is paradise and the Island Queen is the perfect place to stay while visiting. It is always well maintained, clean, beautiful as you can see from the photographs, close to everything, off street parking, quiet and comfortable. Rosemary is great to work with in setting up your reservation and communication before you arrive. The check in/out process with Patty was easy and quick. This is always my first choice when I visit!

Lovely home, great location.
We have stayed in the Truman Annex in Key West for several years. This was by far the nicest home we stayed in. Very well cared for , updated bathrooms, spacious. Rosemary is very easy to deal with. She clearly loves her property and takes very good care of it. Great location! Highly recommend!

A wonderful stay!
This was our second stay at “The Island Queen” ... & it didn’t disappoint us! The home was beautiful & immaculate (thanks to a wonderful cleaning woman - who was also very nice & professional)! Truly amazing, since we really thought that there would be signs of Irma somewhere around ... but, none to be found! Key West in general really bounced back quickly from the hurricane! The weather was delightful ... & it cooperated through our whole stay! We can’t wait to return once again ... for the “Island Queen” is one of our favorite spots away from home! Thank you again, Rosemary & Mark, for sharing your beautiful oasis with us!  


Loved the property and location!
Doesn't get much better than this. Convenient to Mallory Square and surrounding area. The old foundry building with the charm of brickwork that defines this property is wonderful! Already have booked for February. Owner responds quickly.

Great location and very clean
Beautifully decorated and very clean. Nice patio also. So close to Mallory Square and Duval St. Very nice people to deal with. What a great vacation!!

Amazing Property and Location
We have stayed in various locations at Key west but after staying at Island Queen this will be our go to spot. Amazingly close to Mallory Square and Everything, complex and unit pristine. Very comfortable for two couples. Beautiful Space---Bedroom separated for privacy.

Very nice property. Very convenient to everything in Key West.

Key West Gem!
Beautifully well-maintained unit, perfect for 2 couples. We were so comfortable there, it's just like home! Very quiet and private location, yet just a short walk to Mallory Square, Duval St and multiple restaurants. We really enjoyed sitting out in the courtyard under the shade of the palm trees. Can't wait to go back!  

Barbara M.

Highly Recommended
We enjoyed our stay at this house so much last year that we booked it again as soon as we came back. It's a beautiful clean house and we liked the location which was an easy walk to Duvall St., the beach and docks but gave us s quiet place to unwind and rest. It's perfect for four people with separate bedrooms on each side of the house. We loved having dinner in the court yard and felt safe in this gated community. Really cool that Truman's White House was right around the corner. Highly recommended!

A lovely well maintained vacation rental!
This was our second visit to Key West. On our first visit we stayed at the Casa Marina which was lovely but a bit to out of the way. We loved the location of this unique home in the Foundry Building of the Annex. A beautiful red brick building located just a block away from everything. When we rented the condo we did receive a list of rules from Rosemary and I found seeing this comprehensive list of rules to be a very good sign that the person that owned this condo cared about keeping it nice. I was reassured we would not arrive and be disappointed by the condition of the residence. As I expected we arrive to a spotless home very well decorated and nicely appointed.

Location is the Key!
A great condo located in what actually was a foundry. Original brick walls with high ceilings and in the best possible location in Key West old town. It is in walking distance of activities on Duval Street, Mallory Square, Fort Zachary State Park, Hemingway house, the Truman White House, etc. No car needed! Unlike most condos in the foundry, it has two floors instead of three with a split stairway leading to two separate bedrooms and baths. The shared pool is close by, just across Front St in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood. Rosemary has updated and remodeled two of the bathrooms in this very clean and comfortable condo.  

Karen P.

Perfect Place
This is the perfect place to stay within the Truman Annex at Key West. The home has charm and character, is comfortable, spacious and so well maintained. Enjoyed the deck and garden area each morning for breakfast, and would walk and bike everywhere. We will be back!  

Alison W.

Beautiful property
Had a wonderful week at Rosemary's home! Close to everything great location! Hope to return to this property in the future.

Fun in Paradise!
Home very clean and well maintained. Spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds. Really enjoyed the outdoor patio for morning coffee, pm relaxing after the beach, and grilling several meals for dinner. Location is convenient to everything we needed, and the list of suggested shopping was very helpful. All the features of home while being 5 minutes from the beach - what more could you ask for? We plan on returning next year!  

Such a beautiful home in a perfect location!!

Such a beautiful home in a perfect location!!
This condo in the Foundry section of the Truman Annex was amazing! The pictures are beautiful, but they don't do it justice--it is actually even nicer than represented. The decor is beautiful, the layout of the home is perfect for two couples, with two very private bedroom/bathroom areas upstairs. Also very nice half bath downstairs which was very convenient. This condo was spotless and very well maintained. All of the amenities you need for a wonderful stay were included--from kitchen dishes and utensils to a huge BBQ grill in the private, lovely patio area. Check in and customer service was ideal-- Patty and Jim met us with the keys and took great care of us. I just can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at this condo in Key West. Very convenient to the pool, to Duval Street with all the shopping and dining you could ask for, and to Mallory Square for the best sunsets in the world! I promise you cannot go wrong booking this property--you will love it!!!

Our Third Year In A Row Staying At This Home - Gets Better Every Time!!
I cannot say enough about this property, its owners and how wonderful our vacation was. Absolutely the best location in Key West! Everything about this home is perfect. Layout - Decor - Amenities - Privacy - Location are all as good as it gets! We've stayed here 3 years in a row and this home is in as perfect condition as it was 3 years ago. So well cared for with new updates throughout. Rosemary the owner is a pleasure to deal with. All details are meticulously taken care of and our security deposit was even returned before we even made it home from our trip! Couldn't ask for better service and communication from the owners or their local property managers Patty and Jim. All are wonderful to deal with and no surprises. I am one of those very cautious people regarding possible vacation scams. I would HIGHLY recommend renting from Rosemary. The most trustworthy and ethical owner you could ask for! Your vacation is safe with them....... and it doesn't get any better than this vacation home and location! Don't hesitate for a second to rent this home!! Just be sure to book a different week than me next year, the following year or the year after that :)  

A Key West Oasis

Al H.
Our stay at this pristine townhouse couldn't have been more wonderful! We rented this townhouse with another couple and there was plenty or room to accommodate the four of us. The common living space was beautifully appointed and the kitchen was set up nicely, enabling us to whip up a few meals of our choice! The upstairs bedrooms were very private and each bedroom had its own private bathroom ... this is truly a plus, since many 2 bedroom Key West rentals share a bath. The downstairs powder room was also very convenient! I have to admit the beautiful patio and garden was our very favorite area ... it is such a "special" part of the living space ... the lush & manicured foiilage and the black wrought iron fencing lends to the making of a very private & serene patio ... a perfect place to read a book, listen to music, or just relaxing while enjoying cocktails & hors d'oeuvres before dinner ... Simply lovely! Rosemary & Mark were so easy to work with while reserving their home too! They couldn't have been more helpful! So, if you are looking for a beautiful townhouse & a convenient place to stay while in Key West, I would definitely recommend staying at this Truman Annex Oasis! Thank you again, Rosemary & Mark, for sharing your beautiful home with us! We hope to return again in the future ...  

Dan V.

As good as advertised!
All of the great reviews held true in our experiences at this property. The location is perfect and the property itself has a neat feel due the history of the property. It remains in great shape because the owner is rightfully particular about how it is cared for. It is perfect for two couples as we just used it. You would be wise to lock in on this one!!!  

Bill C.

A Truman Annex Gem.
We have stayed at a few other homes in Truman Annex and this one is the nicest. Very clean. The pool is well kept and the location is perfect.

Three years and counting.....
We have stayed in this wonderful home of Mark and Rosemary's for three years and have plans to return for our fourth. The location of this home is incomparable! Duval Street, Mallory Square, the Truman Whitehouse and many Old Town locations are all within walking distance. Moreover, the home is immaculately maintained. The kitchen is well stocked and the layout perfect for two couples. The owners are wonderful to work with and ensure that everything is in order! This property is a one of a kind!!

Had a wonderful stay in this property
Description of property is accurate, very clean and well maintained. The separation of the bedrooms provided nice privacy. Property is secure and very convenient to the square and Duval street attractions. Pool is small and a short walk but clean and pretty private. Owner was great to deal with. We would very much recommend this property.

Wonderful Key West Vacation Experience
This was our first vacation rental through VRBO. We were extremely pleased. This condo was just as described with no surprises. Rosemary, the owner, was excellent to deal with. Very professional and all our questions were answered promptly. The condo was perfect with a great layout. Everything we needed was available and it was ultra clean and meticulously well cared for. The location could not have been any better. Very private and quiet with easy access to EVERYTHING that is Key West. Patty, the local property manager was a pleasure to deal with also. Excellent communication and always available if needed. When the week was over, our security deposit was promptly refunded within 48 hours of leaving. I would highly recommend renting from these owners. They are very ethical and a pleasure doing business with them. We will surely rent from them again when the opportunity arises. Thanks for a great vacation!!
