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

I enjoyed my week long stay at the Conch Retreat. We came down during Fantasy Fest and this lovely home was both reasonably priced and wonderfully located. I was relieved that every thing was as the listing said it would be. The owner Jean was always available whenever we needed anything prior and during our stay.

I would recommend this condo to anyone traveling to Key west!"

Lovely Week

  • 4 of 5

This condo is in such a prime location. It was comfortable and having two decks was a real plus. The kitchen is well stocked and the beds are very comfortable. LOVED being able to step out the door and be at reataraunts and activities in just a few minutes without needing a car. The washer and dryer made for light packing.

Sadly, we hit some chilly weather and didn't used the pool.

The bikes, however, were well enjoyed!

Thank you Jean!

Tropical Delight !

  • 5 of 5

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 ! Joe & Elaine

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this condo. Everything is close by and the pool was nice and warm. The furnishings are comfortable. We appreciated having 2 decks to sit on as one was always cool if the other was hot. The bikes are in great shape, it might have been nice if they had a basket to make it easier to get groceries but for getting around town and to the beaches they are perfect. We hope to go back again and would definitely rent this condo again. Thank you for making your place available.
