Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Full Bath, Sleeps 4

Key West is a resilient spot, we were very fortunate not to receive a direct hit from Irma and we are ready for YOU!!! .....it’s not just a place on the map, it’s a frame of mind, an Attitude…… come and let us share that Key West Attitude with you!

We love it here so much that we feel compelled to share the Key West Experience with others when we can't be here! This is not just a rental but OUR VACATION HOME as well. We actually stay here.

A couple of things that set us apart from other condos in the Shipyard is our renovated Kitchen with stainless steel appliances, ultra quiet dishwasher and touch technology faucet. Our renovated bathroom with the "Couples" walk in shower that offers both a rain shower and height adjustable hand held shower heads that operate together or independently. The King bed frame is custom built to allow for storage of luggage (and other things) during your stay. We inspect our linens on a regular basis and replace them when they become tired with high quality bedding and towels. One of our highlights is the back patio with the exterior fans for your comfort and the gas grill (most condo's can't have a grill because they don't have enough space) allowing for great grilling and don't forget the use of our 2 bicycles as well. All on the 1st floor level.

I can’t stress enough that his is not just a rental property but our vacation home as well. You will find that it is a very well appointed condo. Included in your stay is the use of our 2 personal bicycles, there are TV's in the living area and King bedroom with cable, secured high speed internet, local and long distance telephone for continental USA and Canada, secured parking for 1 vehicle, enjoyment of the common areas and the use of the pool, which is approximately 100 paces from the back gate.

Located in the Ship Yard of Truman Annex a luxury community in the heart of Old Town Key West. This is a 1st floor unit that boasts 2 sets of hurricane rated french doors opening onto a quaint private paradise with lots of palm trees for that tropical feeling. A single lounge chair and a table with seating for four and overhead fans await your arrival. The centrally air conditioned unit has been decorated using bright citrus accents and lively art work (most of it original and local). We have quality linens, and furnishings. The bathroom features a "Couples Shower" and a comfort height toilet, the vanity and oversized mirrored medicine cabinet offer lots of storage. In the well appointed kitchen you will find stainless steel appliances, high end ultra quiet dishwasher, ice maker, smooth top stove and everything that you will need to prepare and serve a nice meal if you are so inclined. The King bedroom features a memory foam mattress on a custom bed frame that offers a storage area for luggage and other large items during your stay and a TV. The Queen room features a Beauty Rest -Recharge Queen mattress for your comfort with double french doors onto the back deck. The Living/Dinning area offers a table with seating for four, sofa, 2 accent chairs, TV with cable and small shelf stereo that is compatible with Ipods.

You are located off the street in a lovely quiet part of the Shipyard only paces from the parking lot and pool. There is no vehicle traffic and the pedestrian traffic is limited . The back deck features over head fans, landscape lighting, and a gas grill. Only a short walk from Duval St, Sunset at Mallory Square, Fort Zachary Taylor State Park and Beach, the infamous Green Parrot Bar, the newly developed Key West Water Front Amphitheater and playground ... the list goes on.... enjoy the vibrant life of Key West and know that you have your very own sanctuary to return to. Experience Key West like a local on our personal bicycles …. new 2017…. this is definitely the best way to get around Key West, no need to fight for a parking spot, relax, wander the side streets and get that Key West Attitude like the locals.

We are very proud of our vacation home, it is not just a rental unit!!!!!

Please note that smoking and pets are NOT permitted in the condo. Smoking is permitted on the back deck. We do not collect a damage or security deposit but do require a valid credit card to have on file to cover any incidentals/damages.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

About Sherri MacKenzie-Ritchie

We LOVE to travel...We reside just outside of Halifax, NS, in Canada. In the past 12 years we have visited Cuba, New Zealand, Spain, Germany (2x's), Holland (2x's), Ecuador 2x's), Singapore, Thailand, Scotland, Australia. A couple of our greatest adventures were in fall 2016 a 6 week road trip along the East coast of Australia, summer of 2017 when we did a 45 day road trip from Sambro, NS, Canada to Anchorage. Alaska, USA and back traveling through Canada and the US. During both of these adventures our preferred place to stay was a Homeaway type accommodation any time possible. We have visited many cities in both Canada and the USA as well. Although we love to experience new cultures and new places we have decided to make Key West our second home when we escape the cold winters here in Atlantic Canada.

Sherri MacKenzie-Ritchie purchased this condo in 2010

Why Sherri MacKenzie-Ritchie chose Old Town

I have been visiting Key West for 30 plus years it is amazing and has many faces...... here in the Shipyard you are close to all of the action, walking distance to pretty much everything ...the floral and fauna is beautiful....but most of it is the ATTITUDE!!!!! Come in, sit down, relax..... the pace is never hurried.... always relaxed..... not to say there isn't excitement in Key West.....just stroll Duval..... This is our Paradise!

What makes this condo unique

The Island is only 1 1/2 miles wide and 4 miles long so you are never far from anything. I have been visiting Key West for 30 plus years now and started staying in Truman Annex 25+ years ago, never did I think that one day I would have a place here to call our own......I introduced my then fiance to Key West in 2008.... he got it.... and Fell in LOVE with the place we were fortunate to find this property in 2010 and the rest is history..... The feelings that are evoked when we walk through the door are hard to explain.... when we arrive the first thing we do is check the bikes.... oh how we love our bikes... then with beverage in hand we head to the back deck, turn on the overhead fans...... and let the moment sink in.... WE are here PARADISE... all of the stresses of the real world melt away...... it is truly magical! Welcome to PARADISE take a deep breath and let the Key West Attitude in!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are so very proud of our reno. It was a big project. We gutted the kitchen and bathroom. All new kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanity, Couples shower with rain shower and fixed/hand held shower head, custom frameless shower doors, comfort height toilet, contemporary vanity and medicine chest. Subway tile with spectacular glass accents. All new contemporary Ikea kitchen cabinets, stainless steel appliances including the Ultra quite dishwasher. Two new sets of Hurricane rated patio doors, with blinds between the glass, Freshly painted from top to bottom, fresh painted back patio, refinished stiletto tiles... there isn't a surface that hasn't been touched. We had holes everywhere in the ceiling and in the walls where we ran new electrical for the wall sconces and can lights in the ceiling. I replaced the eating utensils, bought some new dishes, and cooking utensils, replaced all of the towels and some of the bedding. We are delighted with the results..... it is truly OUR Paradise. We look forward to sharing our home with you!

Sherri and Michael

Remember it is ALL in the Attitude Key West!

Post Irma Stay ( 10/7-14/17 )

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in two years at Attitude Key West. The accommodations are well decorated and maintained . All the comforts of home. My wife and I find the location to be ideal, close to restaurants, bars and attractions. Most of which were open for business during our stay on the island. Enjoyed meals at Blue Heaven, Blue Macaw, La Te Da, Southernmost Café, Mangia Mangia, Alonzo;s Oyster Bar, Off the Hook Grill, just to name a few. Some of our activities included Monday nite bingo for charity at The Green Parrot, Tuesday nite trivia at Mary Ellen's, The Porch, watching Eagles football at Charlie Mac's, and the Wind and Wine Sail. There are plenty of areas to bike ride, including Fort Zachary State Park, just minutes from Truman Annex. All in all, Key West has and is making a quick recovery post Irma. My wife and I are looking forward to returning to Attitude Key West in 2018. Lastly, our reason for visiting the island is that our son lives and works in Key West.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to review. I know that there are lots of folks that are apprehensive about booking a trip to Key West post Irma and this should help put their minds at ease, knowing that Key West is not only making a quick come back but that she is continuing to do so........ The local's mantra immediately after Irma was Key West Strong..... and it's good to hear first hand that Key West won't disappoint...........Look forward to having you visit again next year!

Amazing condo in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Attitude Key West and cannot wait to return. The condo was so cute, clean, and convenient. Everything a family could need was available to us to ensure our comfort. We loved the bikes, beach chairs, and beach towels to help us enjoy our days at Fort Zachary Taylor Beach. The pool was a nice relaxing change of pace as well.

The king-size bed was fabulous with soft sheets that made us feel like we were at the finest hotel. There were plenty of towels and a wonderful shower to add to the experience.

We can’t say enough good about the condo and the helpful and considerate owners who offered so many wonderful tips and suggestions that helped us enjoy our stay to the fullest. Can’t wait to come back!

Such a great location, easy to go to town and get to where we wanted to be! The amenities are thoughtful We all felt so comfortable on the deck, pool or walking the area.... a perfect place for us to gather to celebrate Christmas! The details are tended to nicely! We loved being inside/outside in the beautiful weather,... the condo is beautifully appointed with great local art .... made us feel really on vacation!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review.... we love the local artist and are slowly building our collection.... it's important to us that Key West is different ... a little more relaxed, a place to take a deep breath and rejuvenate, so we are prepared to meet the world head on when we return to our "regular" lives..... hurry back.

Oddly decorated for a Florida cottage. Small, no more that three people.

Location is great. Needs some comfortable furniture. Had a hard time with appliances (washer and refrigerator)

Owner's Response: I am surprised by your rating and your comments. I am sorry that we did not meet your expectations .....we try to not only meet but exceed our guests expectations.....Yes, .. It is a small condo 670+ Sq feet..( as are most of the condo's in this complex). it is decorated in a contemporary style with clean lines...and accents of citrus: yellows, orange and lime in keeping with the tropical environment. Completely renovated at a cost of $45K in 2015... (our pictures are current) ....... 2 bedrooms that accommodate a party of 4 (2 couples) nicely (1 king bed and 1 queen bed)..with lots of living space on the back deck...but yes it can be crowded if everyone is inside.... if you are traveling with a group that require more then 2 beds you are correct we don't work well, that is why we don't have a sofa bed...... We have received numerous compliments on the comfort of the beds (even requests for the manufacturer/name). I am surprised by your comment that we need comfortable furniture.... my husband is a Physical Therapist and he is adamant that we have good furniture that supports one's back and posture..... I have provided numerous cushions and a comfy blanket to make relaxing on the sofa pleasurable and to provide lumbar support when wanted. I hope that you enjoyed the modern kitchen and the bathroom with the couples shower for 2.......The appliances are high end .... the washer and dryer have markings on them for our cleaners (that don't have a good comprehension of the English language and they don't have an issue) they are actually nicer than the ones that I have at my permanent residence in Canada. Please let me know what I can do to improve the instructions for future guests.... the dishwasher is a high end (Bosch designed for GE) with one of the lowest decibel emissions available so that you can run it while still being in the condo or you can set it prior to retiring for the night.without being disturbed.... The refrigerator is a small apartment size with an ice maker ... if you fill the fridge with things that are already cold it will maintain the temperature but when you fill it with warm (shelf/car temperature items) it will take several hours to cool those items down and bring them to a cool temperature but once there it will keep your beer and drinks cold. I am truly sorry that we did not meet your expectations. We hope that your next HomeAway experience is better. Regards Sherri and Michael

You can rest assured that you will never be bored in Key West. Truly a tropical paradise.
