"Fabulous time at Avalynn House in Truman Annex. We've been to Key West several times. But, this was our first time at Avalynn House. It's a gorgeous property that is very close to downtown Key West. Yet, it is far enough away to be very quiet. We loved every minute of our time there. Our Last Key Realty representative, Shel, was tremendous as usual. He is knowledgeable and great to interact with. This is the 3rd or 4th we have the pleasure of working with Shel and it is a pure pleasure every time. Everything about our stay was terrific. Great work and thank you." -Thomas S. 04/17
Imagine being just a few minutes walk from all of Key West's most famous attractions, yet in the peace and solitude of Key West's most exclusive gated community the Truman Annex. With Duval Street just two blocks away and the beach at Fort Zachary Taylor Park right around the corner, you couldn't hope for a more ideal location. And while you're here, your home away from home will have every luxury and convenience you might want.

Outside, there is a very spacious porch facing the pool and a separate dining area under a gazebo.
THE LAGOON POOL & THE BEACH DOWN THE BLOCK...
The lagoon style pool at "Avalynn House" is quite special, with two waterfalls in a lovely private setting. The entire area has been lushly landscaped, providing you with the privacy you would want. And if you need to feel some sand between you toes, the beach at Fort Zachary Taylor Park is just a short walk away.

Key West Luxury with AWESOME pool!!!
This property exceeded my expectations. Last Key Realty was easy to do business with and very professional. I had 7 in my group and we very much enjoyed our stay here. It was close enough to Duval ( 2 blocks ) yet far enough away to be quiet and serene. I'd consider returning to Key West if I could stay here. Well-appointed and first class all the way. I think the highlight was the lagoon style pool.....complete with waterfall....lush foliage....jacuzzi jets. I like the Truman Annex area. Lots of fabulous properties but this one was the best!!! Thanks Shel!- SHERRY M , Posted: 07/11/2016
My group of eight recently enjoyed our stay in Key West, and fell in love with the Avalynn House. The house is absolutely beautiful, and is true to the pictures, if not better! The house is well-appointed, and easily fit our group of eight without ever feeling crowded. The outdoor space was a real treat, and we enjoyed many evenings on the patio, lounging near the pool.
The location of the house, in the Truman Annex, was perfect and we were able to walk whenever we ventured out to a meal, shopping, or for a few libations.
The property manager, Shel, was a pleasure to work with, and was very responsive to our needs for the entire week of our stay.
I speak for the rest of my friends when I say that we would all highly recommend the Avalynn House if you have a large group, and are looking for impeccable accomodations in Key West. And let me know if you need one more person to fill a room.... :)
Can't wait to go back!- Anjanette K , Posted: 07/11/2016
A Fabulous Rental in a Fabulous Location
Everything about this rental was perfect. It was an incredible home. We hosted lots of friends and family for my fiancée’s 50th birthday. It was definitely perfect. Everyone at Last Key Realty was a pleasure to deal with, including Shell who greeted me when I arrived and met us when we left to insure we were totally satisfied with everything. I highly recommend renting this house. And if this house doesn't suit your needs then contact Last Key Realty to have them find you something that suits your needs!- Martin E , Posted: 07/11/2016
perfect house, prefect location! It was an excellent house for our adult family reunion. The house and the town had something for every taste and need. Shel made it seamless!!
Thank you!- Donna M , Posted: 07/11/2016
Our family had a wonderful time
Shel the agent was always helpful and the property manager fixed the waterfall as quickly as possible.- Betsey , Posted: 07/11/2016
Perfect Family Vacation
We just got back from an amazing vacation at the Avalynn home. I can't say enough about how awesome Shel is. He will help you with anything you need and really wants you to feel like you are at home. The home is just as beautiful as the pictures show and you have your own little paradise in the back with the pool. The home is very spacious and perfect for entertaining a large crowd. We had around 30 people over for a birthday celebration and it was the perfect space to do so. You will not be disappointed with your stay at the Avalynn house!- 1st trip to the island , Posted: 07/11/2016
This great review was part of a rental package of several of our vacation homes for a large group celebration. We were sure to equip each individual home of the rental package to those particular guests' requests, and were thrilled to receive the overwhelmingly positive feedback from the group that they had an awesome time. Reserving a package of our rental homes is an easy way to accommodate a large group while still allowing some privacy for the separate parts of the group. Call us directly for a consultation on the best combination of homes for your particular group- Last Key Realty staff, Posted: 07/11/2016
Our stay at the Avalynn House was amazing!!!!!
The Avalynn House was perfect and Shel was the nicest guy I’ve ever met. He greeted our whole guests with kindness, we couldn't have asked for a better manager for this house. The house was amazing and in the perfect located for us. I totally recommend this house it was so clean and well decorated, it had everything we needed. We will definitely be staying here again next year so thank you again Shel for best hospitality ever!!!!!- Jennifer T , Posted: 07/11/2016
very nice spacious well cared for.- Dennis M , Posted: 07/11/2016
"Perfect, Perfect, Perfect"
My family decided in December 2013 to do a great vacation instead of gift exchange for each other. We all get along famously, so we knew it would be fun. We checked the internet and soon came upon Avalynn House in Key West. It checked all the boxes for us, but even better than that was the fact that it was exactly to the "T" as it was represented on the website. The contract details were easy, and Shel was a doll! Any questions that we had were answered promptly, and while there, Shel met us at the house for an introductory inspection and gave us tips for all the great and fun things to do in Key West. Shel also met us on departure for a walk-through and we all commended his professionalism! We would definitely recommend this home and Last Key Realty and would love to stay again sometime!- Elen W , Posted: 07/11/2016
Wonderful home in the heart of Key West
I'm not going to beat around the bush here. This is a wonderful place to stay in Key West. The location is perfect. It's about a 5-minute walk to Duval Street. You don't need a car if you stay here. The house itself is beautiful. It's completely up to date. It's got a bunch of flat screen TVs, granite countertops, beautiful hardwood floors, etc. The outdoor deck area is perfect for lounging. There is a shaded sitting area as well as a place to lay out. The pool isn't huge, but it's big enough. We had 5 small kids and they had a blast.
Shel, the guest services manager, is great. He stopped by the morning after we arrived to make sure everything was ok. He also helped my sister-in-law unload her car and then find a place in town to leave her huge conversion van since it wouldn't fit in the parking spot.
When we make it back to Key West, we'll definitely stay here again.- rp62 , Posted: 07/11/2016
The Avalynn House is such a treasure in Key West. We were in town for work and pleasure. Avalynn House was the perfect spot for both. There was more than adequate work space as well as plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of Key West. Located inside Truman Annex, the house is perfectly positioned within walking and biking distance of all the great Key West attractions. The concierge service associated with the property is a fantastic resource. My bicycle was delivered to my door step and our groceries were just a call away. The house itself was in stellar condition as were the grounds and pool. Each room was comfortable and cool throughout. The bathrooms are well designed and there were plenty of towels. The interior appointments were very nice and complimented the area well. The WIFI was excellent as was the cable. Our host, Shel, was superb. He was very attentive and made sure we were completely comfortable during our stay. His restaurant recommendations were spot on! We thoroughly enjoyed out visit and have already booked again for next year!- Tessa F , Posted: 12/19/2016
Perfect home for a wedding week in Key West
We spent a beautiful week in Key West at the Avalynn House. The property is beautiful! The kitchen was large and perfect for our group of eight, and for entertaining other guests. The layout was well thought-out, and the house and surroundings were clean and well-maintained. The pool and patio area were spacious and condusive to entertaining or just private enjoyment. While the bridesmaids prepared at another location, the groomsmen enjoyed the pool and had plenty of room to get dressed and enjoy themselves before the wedding (the ceremony and reception were held at the Audubon House, which I would also highly recommend as a beautiful venue.) Our concierge, Shel, had the house perfectly prepared for our arrival, and took care of all the details (accepting packages ahead of time and helping us ship things home when we left). All requests were taken care of by Shel, who was genuinely concerned that our stay there happened without any issues. The house was well-stocked with towels and cooking, dining needs. Although we had perfect weather, the A.C. worked great, and all appliances, kitchen and bathroom fixtures worked perfectly. All in all, it was a perfect oasis: a quiet retreat, but convenient to everywhere you wanted to go!! The Truman Annex is right in the middle of Old Town, but was a perfect safe, quiet neighborhood. We could walk or bike everywhere! My only regret is that we had only a week in this fabulous place! Next time I'll come for a month!- Millie L , Posted: 03/09/2017
What a fantastic home!
We had a wonderful week at Avalynn house. We were a family group of six adults and two toddlers, and our stay could not have been better. The location is superb - easy walk or bike ride to everything on Duval St., Ft. Zack Beach, Mallory Square, you name it. The decor of the home is better than portrayed in the photos - so tasteful and beautiful, and so tropical! And we especially loved the pool, rock ledge waterfall, and the outdoor lounging and seating areas. The agent, Shel, was magnificent. Some of us had stayed the prior week elsewhere in KW, and he even helped us transport our luggage from the other place to Avalynn house on the day of our check-in. We highly recommend this house, with no hesitation or qualification whatsoever.- Sunset S , Posted: 07/11/2016
Giesler Key West Adventure 2018
What an amazing adventure we had, and it all started from the Avalynn House! We could relax in this beautiful home and found fabulous things to do with in walking distance. Shel made us feel welcome as well as gave us some great tips on how to make the most of our time in Key West. He personalized our visit by welcoming us to the home as well as stopping by to say good bye. We simply loved every minute we spent here!- Loren & Keryl G from Waverly Nebraska, Posted: 07/16/2018
Key West Paradise
My husband and I treated our 5 children (ages 21-28) along with our daughter's husband and 2 children and our son's girlfriends. We absolutely loved the house and its location. It is a short walk to Duval and the beach if you want to go. We were happy most days to relax in the hot tub lagoon pool. We did rent a golf cart for those who didn't want to walk and to get groceries. We visited the Hemingway House and, of course, saw the sunset at Mallory Square. The very first night our son proposed to his girlfriend at sunset, so plenty to celebrate. The house was everything they said it would be and very clean. We all love to cook so most nights we ate in. We did love Blue Heaven for breakfast, great atmosphere. And the shopping they suggested was great. We also had lunch at Caroline’s, Mango's and Margaritaville. All were positive experiences. And the waiter at Red Fish Blue Fish was the sweetest guy ever and the food was fantastic. Shel was also amazing. All I had to do was ask for something and it was delivered to the house. He even dropped me off at the grocery. A great house in a safe area and an amazing trip.- Debbie C , Posted: 07/11/2016
Truman Anex Key West
This property was beautiful, close to Duval and the marinas. Shel Segal was our host. He was very exceptional at making his guests feel comfortable! We will definitely return for a second vacation at the Avalynn House.- Maryann T , Posted: 09/26/2016
Our February 2018 Stay at Avalynn House
Beautiful residence and stay in Key West as amplified by the consummate professionals at Last Key Realty who excelled at meeting our every need from start to finish. Nothing but superlatives for Shel, Terri, Cecilly, John and their whole team who went out of their way to make for a memorable and thoroughly wonderful experience. Felt like family (the good kind).....- John M , Posted: 03/01/2018
Beyond impressive home and stay!
We ABSOLUTELY LOVED this home!!! The furniture, color scheme, and size were perfect. Also, we had never stayed in the Truman Annex and this trip spoiled us on that for sure. Definitely fit the bill for "home away from home" (but actually a lot nicer than home lol!) Shel is always so kind and accommodating to us when we stay! We will probably never stay in hotels again in Key West we were so impressed! This house is PHENOMENAL!! Loved it! Thanks again Shel!- Alissa F , Posted: 07/11/2016
A Native's Review of the Avalynn House
The first thing to mention is that this property is located within the private residential community of the Truman Annex. These homes are well-appointed, historic, and perfectly situated. The location gives you easy access to the middle of the Downtown of Old Town Key West. There are lots of renowned restaurants and bars within a few blocks walk. Additionally, the house is located on the same property of Fort Zachary Taylor and its related beach, and The Little White House.
The house is as described and pictured. This is a classic, Victorian-style Key West luxury home. It is a well-designed layout, providing areas that are conducive to family get-togethers and general relaxation. It is in no way crowded or inconvenient. Bathrooms and bedrooms are roomy. I hope that you’ll be lucky to stay in the third floor bedroom. The pool and waterfall are the best way to cool down from summer heat and boozy drinks. The kitchen is spectacular with everything appliance and dinnerware you can imagine – just add food. But, do they have walnut picks? Yes.
Shel Segel is one of the most responsive and accessible property managers I’ve ever dealt with. Despite the fact that he manages 20 properties, he is still able to provide full support AND still remember the names of all 11 people in my party! One of the outside A/C units broke on the third day, and Shel had a mechanic out to the property in under an hour, and things were fixed by the time we came back from lunch. As a native Key Wester, I can tell you getting service that quickly is unheard of.
I highly recommend this property for large family getaways. You will live like a Native.- Felix M , Posted: 07/11/2016
Lost in Paradise
What Can I say about perfection??? Gorgeous property, in the Truman Annex, the only place to be in Key West. 4 Blocks to Mallory Square, in the heart of old town. This is our 3rd year vacationing in Key West. Last Key Realty and their amazing staff makes sure your stay is a seamless operation providing you with any request, that you might have, any whim, and a 24-hour concierge service, just like any or the most amazing hotel you have ever stayed. Of course, this would not be the case if they did not have "Shel" Mr. concierge himself! Once you meet him, it's like seeing a long lost friend. He makes sure your needs-(did I say any) are met to the fullest. All their properties are first class, so you can feel confident in calling them and booking your vacay! Now the Avalynn House.
This home is a classy party house; with everything you need inside! Beautiful huge rooms state of the art appliances, comfortable beds, great towels and linens, the pool is a lagoon, with a waterfall and very deep, which I was amazed!
Terraces off the multi-bedrooms, A huge Bar-B-que, and multiple flat screens TV in every room!!!
I cannot wait to go back, and rent this house again!!!

The battle of Avalynn -- February 2013
By the end of the stay, the house appeared to have been the site of some strange bacchanal. G.I. Joes held their positions on the pool waterfall, anticipating another invasion from their giant, kindergarten, man-child tormentor. Tiny crocs and flip-flops were strewn about the serene grounds and pleasantly comforting interior. Beach toys mingled with flecks of coral and cracked, but “just perfect” seashells pilfered from Fort Zach Beach on the once welcoming dining room table. Juice boxes and candy wrappers littered the counter tops where only a few hours prior, a weary little soldier took one last, long sip before closing his eyes to enter a dream world full of flying tropical fish and cruise ships and perhaps a visit from the curious, cartoon-ish woman from the painting in the bathroom. Any rational person entering this scene from the outside might describe it as a well fought battle between heavy-eyed, yet happy grown-ups and an army of sugar fueled five year olds. And in a normal world where up is up and down is down, this person’s assumption might be spot on, but in Key West, on this day, at 522 Emma St., in Avalynn House, this somewhat endearing destruction was the work of one boy; a boy who had just experienced the greatest week of his life. Describing our stay at Avalynn House has been somewhat of a struggle. It’s not easy to avoid using all of the typical adjectives. The reason for this, however, is rather simple. This is not a typical vacation house. Of course, we spent time on the beach, and we shopped and occasionally imbibed on Duval Street, and we dined at many incredible restaurants, and we rode the trolleys, and we toured the museums and the aquarium, and we bought knick knacks that we really didn’t need, and we fished rather successfully offshore, and not so successfully on shore, but the ease and convenience of doing these things was made all that much simpler because of our location on the island. Avalynn House IS everything you imagine it could be – impeccably clean, bright, colorful, comfortable, and spacious (not too big though). Everything works. The beds are inviting and comfortable after a long, hard day of doing nothing but relaxing. On top of all these wonderful things, the property is managed by a brilliant, kind and unquestionably accommodating man named Shel, and he will go out of his way to make your stay comfortable, relaxing and memorable. Thanks, Shel.- Jonathan D , Posted: 07/11/2016
What a fantastic review! Nothing makes us happier than to hear the stories of our guests making great memories in our rental homes, especially when written with such finesse and color. This review speaks for itself!!- Last Key Realty staff, Posted: 07/11/2016
Beautiful and Private Home close to Duval
Beautiful property, very well maintained and very clean. Excellent decor.
Within walking distance to Duval yet quiet and very private setting. Perfect family vacation property.
Shel and Last Key Realty were excellent hosts. Would definitely stay again.- Douglas S , Posted: 07/11/2016
Family Thanksgiving/ 5 star vacation!
We stayed at the Avalynn house with our entire family, in-laws and all, for the Thanksgiving holiday. The home was so incredible and actually had something for everyone. The pool was just the perfect size for the kids and the living area/kitchen provided the perfect setting for gathering to either watch TV or just eat and enjoy some cocktails. The bedrooms were all far enough away from the public areas and provided great privacy. Additionally, the home was beautifully appointed. We had a couple of minor issues which was to be expected, but Shel from Last Key Realty was UNBELIEVBLE! What a guy. If there was an issue it was resolved immediately and he was always around to just make sure we were all happy and having a great time. I can't decide if I liked the house or the service Shel provided more!!!! I WILL be back and I WILL rent from Last Key again. We all had an amazing time and appreciated the extra special service.- Shannon , Posted: 07/11/2016
Review of Avalynn House
We had an excellent trip to Key West. The Avalynn House was beautiful and comfortable for the entire family. We enjoyed the pool a lot. Thank you to Shel for the wonderful service and assistance he provided during our stay. Very helpful to know you can count on someone in the event you have any questions or concerns.- David W , Posted: 07/11/2016
THE BEST EVER
I HAVE TO SAY OUR STAY AT AVALYNN HOUSE WAS THE BEST EXPERIENCE WE HAD...THE GUEST SERVICE MANAGER IS BY FAR THE MOST HELPFUL AND FRIENDLY PERSON. THE PLACE WAS MORE BEAUTIFUL THEN THE PICTURES. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. THANK YOU AND WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT YEAR FOR SURE.- DL W , Posted: 07/11/2016

Beautiful home with an amazing pool
We loved this beautiful home with a fantastic pool in great area. This house is close to everything. We walked everywhere and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Shel was fantastic! We highly recommend this property.- Gayle F from DeWitt, Posted: 04/23/2018
Excellent Location, Lasting Memories
My fiancée and I stayed at Avalynn house the first two weeks of March. The location is excellent: just a short walk away from some of Key West’s best-known attractions, such as Duval and Mallory Square, but within a quiet, safe, and well-cared-for gated community. Everything is within walking distance, including a number of great restaurants. You can walk in one direction in the morning and watch the sun come up over the Atlantic and walk in the other direction in the evening to see it set into the Gulf of Mexico – how bad can it be?
The property is the architectural embodiment of Key West. There’s plenty of space, a sizeable kitchen, a comfortable living room, and a backyard patio with a ceiling fan. You can park your car next to the backyard entrance, which is very convenient.
The Guest Services Coordinator – Shel – is just great: punctual, helpful, calm, tactful, nonintrusive, with a great sense of humor.
