Just Listed, but not by me, 606 Truman Avenue #9 in Key West. This is the kind of property many potential second home buyers want to purchase. It has all the attributes of a lovely old style Key West home with advantage of being of recent construction. It has a very valuable City of Key West Transient Rental License which allows an owner to rent the home each week throughout the year. The home owner's association requires a minimum of one week rental
This is the only stand alone unit in Windward Park where the other units
all share a party wall. And this unit is located at the rear of the
development so the owner will have total seclusion when sitting on the
porch or relaxing in the private garden space. This 1152 sq ft two bedroom/two
bath home is as clean as a whistle. It is offered completely furnished.The pool is sunny, and
since there are only 13 units, you won't have to stand in line to get a
lounge chair. Each home has a designated off street parking space. Windward Park is located one block east of Duval Street and is within easy
walking distance to all of your favorite haunts.
The entire first floor provides lots of space for
relaxation or entertaining. Everything about this space is open and inviting. As
soon as I entered this home I knew I would like it. I could smell the
clean - not a disinfectant kind of clean but instead
the freshness one knows when entering a home that has been spotlessly
maintained. I don't think I have even been inside a rental anywhere
that was as fresh and inviting as this. If you look at the third photo above you will see two closets located adjacent to the
refrigerator. One is a "lock out" for owner storage. There are several
similar owner lock outs throughout the house. These lock outs provide subtle
protection for owner necessities such as toothbrushes, suntan lotion, tee shirts, shorts and flip flops.
you have ever stayed in a dinky two bedroom condo you will surely
appreciate the size and spatial layout of this home which has two
home sits at the far rear of the compound. It is the only free standing unit in the compound where the other homes are attached
duplexes. Unlike most of the other units which have a side or rear
deck for outdoor space, this home sits on a spacious and shaded lot
which includes a nice private deck area and a little fountain. Some of
other homes in this compound have a transient rental license, but not
all. Owning a transient rental license is a very valuable extra even if
you decide not to rent the unit. But if you choose to rent, you ought
to keep this lovely home rented as often as you want. It has everything a
home owner (or renter) could ask for. CLICK HERE to view more photos I took of this property.

I first read about Key West in a magazine called "After Dark" sometime in the mid 1970's. But it wasn't until March 1984 that I made my first visit to the island that would become my home.
I had two weeks for a vacation and reserved a room at Colours Guesthouse (now Marrero's Guest House) for one week. I thought that if I didn't like Key West, I could always go back to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale for the rest of my trip.
But after a couple of days in Key West, that was no longer a consideration. But when I wanted to extend my stay for the extra week I found there was no room at the inn. The guesthouse owner did find me a room at LaTeDa, the infamous guesthouse/restaurant. That's a story I'll write another day. But those two weeks in Key West gave me the realization that I had found Paradise.
Key West has been my home since 1993 and my only regret is that it took me so long to get here.
