Amazing Owner

  • 5 of 5
Whenever I book something through a website like this I always wonder if I am going to get what is advertised and if the owner is trustworthy. Unfortunately I cannot comment on the property since I had to cancel my trip but the owner of his property is absolutely amazing. From the very beginning he was responsive with email and phone calls and very helpful in the booking process. There were 4 of us who were going to be going on this trip but sadly we had to cancel to do one of the people going getting deployed during our dates. When I explained the situation to the owner he was more than happy to refund the full deposit and all the rent with no charge. Without having stayed at his property I would highly recommend his property purely on his customer service and kindness. As soon as we are ready for a trip to Key West he will be the first person I contact. Thank you again for being so kind, understanding, and trustworthy.

Quiet cottage, close to everything

  • 5 of 5
Jack's "Touch of Bermuda" cottage in Truman Annex is great! It's just inside the entrance of Truman Annex near the guard shack. The home is clean and has all the amenities you need for a week-long stay, including washer/dryer. Jack goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is a memorable one, providing you with all kinds of information on things to do while in Key West. Secure wireless internet is provided, as well as cable TV. Jack provides a key to the community pool inside the Annex, as well as a pass to Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park, which is nearby.

The upstairs master "suite" is very large and has a king bed, flatscreen TV and a chair. There is also a pack-n-play for little ones. Our 2.5 year-old daughter slept in it all week!

On your first night, set the coffee pot to come on in the AM. Wake up the next morning to the smell of coffee and the sound of roosters crowing (chickens are everywhere in Key West). Sip your coffee on the front porch, enjoy the island breeze and watch the rest of the Annex come to life.

Truman Annex is 2.5 blocks away from Duval Street, so you're far enough away from the noise when you want to relax, but close enough to the action when you want to go out. You're also 2 blocks from Blue Heaven and La Creperie - our two favorite breakfast venues.

If you're physically able to ride a bike, rent bikes for your stay! You don't have to worry with parking your car, and you get to see so much more of Key West! By the way, Sunshine Bike Rental will take you to the airport at the end of the stay, free of charge.

You won't be disappointed with "A Touch of Bermuda". It has all the comforts of home - but it's located in KEY WEST!!

Owner's Response: I thank this family for its positive comments. I am obviously humbled when my property receives such a terrific review. A property owner can never be perfect in anticipating every need of a guest but I "play" at being a guest myself and when friends visit I ask them how I can make my home truly "a home away from home" for couples, families, singles, anniversaries, birthdays, romantic get aways, an adventure week etc. Needless to say, I would love to have this family back. Our emails before and after their visit have been very enjoyable to me.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 4 of 5
This isn't just a Touch of Bermuda in Key West, but a hug!! We loved our vacation in Key West. The weather was perfect, so many things to do and see. This cottage is a great place to stay because of it's location. Near Fort Zachary Taylor, short walk to Duval St. and nice bike ride(or walk) to Mallory Square as well as Schooner's Wharf. We loved Mallory Square and walked there everyday and night via Duval St., which is an experience as well!

The cottage was clean and well maintained. We loved sitting on the front porch and watching the people go by.......everyone is so friendly in KW. The back porch was wonderful. I sat out there every morning with a cup of coffee and my book. How relaxing is that??

The owner gave us terrific suggestions for places to see and eat. The place to go for breakfast is Blue Heaven! Great pancakes and yummy specials. We ate lunch at the Fort Taylor snack bar.......hamburgers were good! Dinner.......Conch Republic Seafood Company, Babalou's were good!

We went on the Tortuga IV fishing excursion. Great time had by all!! We loved our vacation in KW! Can't wait to go back!

Best location, best amenities, great owner

  • 5 of 5
We certainly enjoyed renting A Touch of Bermuda and it was a pleasure doing business with Jack. Here are our top ten reasons for loving this house

TOP TEN REASONS TO RENT A TOUCH OF BERMUDA

1. Jack Agnew is a private owner who is genuinely interested in making sure that his guests get the best out of their Key West vacation.
2. A Touch of Bermuda is ideally located – in the private Truman Annex but just three blocks from Duval Street and very close to sunsets at Mallory Square, the Green Parrot Bar, Southernmost Point, and water attractions
3. Jack provides a seasonal pass to Fort Zachery State Park – the best beach in Key West, very close to the house, and FREE for his guests.
4. Jack provides a key to the Truman Annex pool – a “real sized” pool just down the block with landscaping, lounge chairs, and an outdoor shower.
5. Jack’s house comes with private, secure internet.
6. Jack has a small but fun collection of books, and dvds for your use.
7. There are tvs in the living room AND both bedrooms.
8. The house comes fully equipped with linens and kitchen utensils.
9. Jack provides a parking spot - if you need it.
10. It's Key West!

This house is ideally set up for families or 2 couples with a bedroom and separate bathroom on each floor. The upstairs "master suite" is awesome with a king bed and takes up the entire floor. The downstairs bedroom is reasonably sized and has two twins.

I would recommend this to anyone wanting a Key West adventure.

Owner's Response: Deb. I didn't know you were a female version of Letterman. I appreciate your creative way of reviewing my property. Thank you so much.

As my daughters say, Key West is not Florida but the first island of the Caribbean. I first came to Key West when my daughters and I went camping on the Keys in 1984. I vowed I would own a house here some day and when I sold my PR firm in 1999, I headed south and purchased in the Shipyard section of the Truman Annex

Amenities

From the Owner

I call my home 'A Touch of Bermuda in Key West' since I used to go to Bermuda on business so thought I'd paint my home in that island's colors...butter yellow, coral, pale green. I also go to Cuba on humanitarian and educationsl trips so you will see paintings on my wall of the people, cars and scenery of that island just 90 miles away. We are located mid-way between Duval St. and the Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park beach and I have a pass for you to enjoy what is the best beach in Key West.
