About Sherri MacKenzie-Ritchie

We LOVE to travel...We reside just outside of Halifax, NS, in Canada. In the past 10 years we have visited Cuba, New Zealand, Spain, Germany, Holland twice, Several US visits to Florida, California and Maine and several visits to some of our Capital Cities here in Canada, Vancouver, Toronto, Quebec City, Ecuador, Singapore and Thailand next we are headed to Scotland. 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 Key West

I have been visiting Key West for 30 years it is amazing and it 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 years now and started staying in Truman Annex 20+ years ago, never did I think that one day I would have a place her 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 patio, 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!

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!

Lovely condo with wonderful amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely be back!! The kitchen and bathroom are very modern. The condo was spotless. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you might need. We had a wonderful stay. Beds were very comfy. Thanks for making our vacation extra special. We love the Truman Annex area and especially this condo. The owners were terrific - we had all the info we needed for our stay and we checked out a bunch of their suggestions for experiencing Key West which made the trip extra fun.

PERFECT location and gorgeous condo!

  • 5 of 5

You can't go wrong renting this condo! The location was PERFECT. Just a couple blocks from all the "action" yet quiet and peaceful for a good night's sleep. The condo is located in a gorgeous gated community with a security guard. Very safe! The bikes that came with the rental were a MUST HAVE! We used them every day. We parked our car in the designated space and used it only once all week. The condo is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. The king size bed slept great. Sherri was so easy to deal with and she was quick to answer all my questions. We highly recommend this condo to everyone!

Wonderful, clean, convenient, well-stocked condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Attitude Key West! The bikes were our favorite perk. We rented 2 more from Wecycle, just a block from Truman Annex, and that was our mode of transportation all week. We loved the fact that Fort Zachary Taylor was just a short 5-10 minute ride and that Mallory Square was a short ride or walk away. There is so much to do in Key West. We will definitely be back. The only negative about the condo is it's a little tight for 4 adults. Other than that it was perfect! We enjoyed the large deck/patio area as much as the well appointed interior. I would definitely suggest renting from Sherri and Michael!

Owner's Response: Thank yo u for the great review. I have to agree that things can get a little tight in the condo if you have 4 people. These condo's are approx. 670 sq. ft. When we are there I make sure that we keep your personal stuff in the bedroom.... including shoes, hand bags, back packs, towels and electronics, etc., unless you are using them. We also like to turn off the AC, turn on the fans and open the double doors going onto the back patio this certainly expands the living area. Because it is a small footprint I have kept the furniture and nick nacks to a minimal, provided towel bars in the bedrooms and used light colors so that it feels bright and cheerful. The location is certainly prime and because of this space is at a premium. So glad that you enjoyed. Sherri

Definitely the Right Attitude at Attitude Key West

  • 5 of 5

This was on of the best all around properties that I have rented through HomeAway. Upon arrival it doesn't take long to realize how much Sherri and Michael love their vacation home and truly want you to love it as well. It was very clean and the kitchen was well appointed. Even with all the amazing places to eat in Key West we found ourselves enjoying several meals at "home" as the grill was fabulous and it was just so relaxing to enjoy a meal out on the patio. The owners provide 2 bikes with the unit, and these are no ordinary bikes. They are well maintained, comfortable, and come with bike locks and baskets large enough to carry groceries or supplies for a trip to the beach. The location is fantastic, so nice to be in a quiet relaxing location that also had such wonderful access to all the Key West adventures. This is definitely a location we would return to again and again.

The location was perfect and the owner's attention to detail was spot on.

  • 5 of 5

Attitude Key West is great! Fully stocked kitchen, quality linens, bicycles, beach chairs, Weber grill, complete with suggestions for things to do and places to dine. I would definitely consider visiting this property again. 😊👍

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed... actually the grill has a Weber cover on it, I think that is manufactured by Weber(I have seen a similar grill made by them) this one is a Kenmore.... still a good quality grill that is just over a year old.....We are very lucky to be able to have this grill on our back deck. New restrictions in the fire code mean that a number of owners had to remove their grills.The unique configuration of the back deck enables us to be in compliance with the code. We feel very fortunate to be able to enjoy the grill on the back deck when we are there. We love to spend time on the back deck with the smell of BBQ and a great glass of wine. Hurry back!

Everything was just right. Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just right for our one week stay at Sherri's place in Truman Annex. We are a family of four, so the condo was cozy, but there was ample space. The beds are very sufficient for four to sleep comfortably. The back deck is spacious and well maintained (unlike some other decks we have used in Truman annex). The interior is very well appointed. There is a very well equipped kitchen and bathroom- really the nicest amenities we have had in Truman Annex (this is the third place we have stayed at). Sherri was very responsive to all my questions and needs. Can't think of anything negative - highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thank you! We do take great pride in our vacation home and understand that all condo's in Truman Annex are not equal one of the major differences is we actually live here when we can. Our back deck is a unique configuration and because of that we are one of the few units still permitted to have a gas grill which gives us great pleasure when we are there...... so please hurry back!

Key West is an amazing and diverse community. It has something to offer for everyone a day at the beach, lunch at the bar, a stroll along the Atlantic Ocean or Sunset on the Gulf side, and the night life on Duval. You can rest assured that you will never be bored in Key West. Truly a tropical paradise.
