About Jean Kemp

We fell in love with Key West when visiting with friends. It's history, traditions, warm waters, great weather, free spirited life-style. It is a dream come true to own this condo and to share it with others so they can also fall in love with this caribbean paradise.

Jean Kemp purchased this condo in 2001

Why Jean Kemp chose Key West

Truman Annex is a beautiful gated community. It's location says it all as you're close to everything. Key West is a 2x4 island. You can walk or rides bikes everywhere. Fort Zachary Park & Beach you can swim, snorkel, bring food to grill and just relax. The Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center is a new facility and free. You can take a journey and discover the native animals & plants of the Keys.

What makes this condo unique

the 2 Bicycles are a unique benefit. I can also recommend places to rent additional bikes if need. Also fishing excursions. They offer discounts to our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a note to thank you for being a big part of the wonderful time we had in Key West this past week ! The condo was perfect for all of our needs ! We loved the decor, the balconies, and all the helpful amenities we needed in the kitchen and for the beach . The back balcony in particular was such a beautiful tropical little paradise - perfect for early morning with coffee & later on in the late afternoon for wine and cheese ! The bikes were great and we toured around quite a bit. Everything was clean and orderly when we arrived with plenty of towels and linens ! Again thank you for everything being just as pretty and efficient as it looked on your website !

We have been to Key West many, many times and the condo was perfect. Great location with easy access to the beach and Duval Street. The condo was very well equipped and very, very clean. We would recommend to anyone wanting a perfect location and a lovely place to stay.

Amazing Vacation / Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us in Key West. You thought of everything for our stay. From the bicycles, to the speaker system for our iphones/ipads, to the pantry staples in the kitchen.

Such a beautiful home, close to Duval, but so quiet and peaceful. We can not thank you enough for the use of your beautiful property. We have told all our friends about your home and recommended they stay with you as well.

Great. Cute. Handy to everything. Nice to have beach towels and all the amenities, even some food

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation. Because we have a business at home, I'm constantly thinking of ways to make things better. So here are my thoughts. Because our kids are under 18, I would've loved resources at our "home" with ideas for fun for them (some things they couldn't do cuz not old enough). I guess I love when the house owner leaves ideas in general as to what she thinks is really worthwhile doing, which beach is the best, which restaurant you love, where we could get our caught fish cooked, where the best coffee shop is, where to go for great ice cream, etc. There are just so many choices...your input would've been invaluable. But it was fun to explore too. Oh, maybe let guests know what all you have available so we don't bring our blow dryer or buy beach towels on the way down. It was nice to have some staples like sugar and olive oil in the cupboards too. Thanks for everything.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your family vacation. I appreciate your thoughts and plan to make a binder that will have your suggestions. My husband and I stay in each of our condos several times a year to try and make updates and love to make our tenants stay as if it's their own place. You are very welcome guests and hope you get to come and visit the Southernmost City again soon. Jean

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was centrally located with all the amenities you could ask for. We did not cook in the unit but did brew coffee each morning. Beds were very comfortable. The Annex in which the unit was located was beautifully landscaped and you were able to walk around feeling very safe. The bikes were the real winner - biked around the entire island one morning and the other mornings biked and stopped to eat breakfast at one of the many little cafes around the island. Would definitely return!
