About Jim Bowman

My wife and I purchased our condo after coming to Key West for nearly 20 years. This is our favorite place to escape to. You can truly get on 'island time' here. Whether you are just hanging out on the sundeck or by the pool, biking around the island, or bar hopping, Key West has something to offer everyone. There is really more to do here than most people have the time to do. Our condo has a lot of Key West character . This can be your home away from home also.

We purchased here because Shipyard Condos are located in a private community Truman Annex. We are just two blocks from Duval Street, and do not need a car when we are there. You can just hang out, or be in the heart of everything. Your choice.

We purchased this condo in 2015

Why Jim Bowman chose Key West

This wonderful 2 bedroom downstairs unit is owner's second home and has just been beautifully and professionally decorated. Fresh paint throughout, all new hardwood flooring, new kitchen with granite and stainless steel appliances, and brand new designer furnishings make this a home away from home. A large rear courtyard with a wood sundeck and outdoor grill is perfect for entertaining. Located in the heart of old town Key West, Truman Annex is a gated community of private homes and condominiums. There is an inviting heated swimming pool on premises.

Our home has been featured on the cover of The Key West newspaper because of the 'islandy feel'.

All dining, shopping, and night life are within walking distance from your door. One of the highest-rated national park and beach areas in America is just a short walk away. The Master bedroom has a Queen size bed. 2nd bedroom has 2 single beds. There is a sleeper sofa in the living room. This unit is fully equipped for long, enjoyable stays. All you need is your clothes and toothbrush. Life is good in the Keys! Walk or bike to shopping, dining, fishing, entertainment, beaches, sunsets, Mallory Square, and Duval Street.

What makes this condo unique

The large sundeck in the rear courtyard is an extension of the condo, and is lovely almost all months of the year. Nice night lighting and tropical palm trees and plants make for a lush landscape. Great for sunbathing!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were lucky enough to have met the Bowman family last year just after they purchased their condo. After contacting them over the winter we had the great honor of renting their property this May for a week. It was like staying in a high end hotel with comfort of being in a laid back home. Everything is upgraded & beautiful. We enjoyed one evening of barbecuing on the patio & taking in the greenery around us. Perfect walking location to restaurants, bars & shopping. We are looking forward to going back.



Truly had a wonderful.

The Perfect Location For Your Tropical Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I have been to keywest multiple times and have stayed in Truman Annex for most of the trips. Majestic Paradise is my favorite location by far. It is located on the outskirts of the Truman property making it easily accessible when moving in for the week and going to and from the town during your stay. Lots of beautiful foliage surrounds the very large back porch creating a tropical paradise as well as providing privacy. The beds slept amazing! The owner recently upgraded them with the best beauty sleep mattresses on the market and it did not go unnoticed. I highly recommend this place because of its beauty location and wonderful owners. Next time I visit keywest this will be the first place I look to rent.

Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Truman Annex for years. This was by far our favorite condo. It was so clean, decorated professionally and was just a beautiful place. You felt relaxed the minute your walked in the door. The bamboo and tropical decorations were fantastic! It had everything we needed from towels to coolers and even snorkeling gear. We were steps away from Fort Zachary Taylor Park and amazing restaurants. We hope to return next year. thanks so much!

The best in Key West!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for an affordable condo in the Truman Annex, whose location simply can't be beat. This condo was the perfect choice, easily walkable to everything on the best side of the island! Old town is just a few minutes away and the southernmost point about 10 to 15 minutes in the other direction. The subdivision is simply gorgeous, so quaint and scrupulously clean, with beautiful gardens. The condo itself was lovely, very clean and modern and equipped with every necessity and many little luxuries, too! Jim the owner was helpful and easy to communicate with. I hope to return to Key West again sometime and will most definitely rent this condo again!

Great property in a perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time booking through VRBO and I was SO pleased I did!! This unit was clean, well-stocked and centrally located. It was close to shopping, restaurants, excursion departures and outdoor activities. The back deck was great for cooking out and the community pool was perfect after a hot day of adventures. We would definitely recommend it and hope to return again someday!!

Great place!! Enjoy your stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this unit for a week. It was perfect. There were 2 couples, each with 1 child and there was room enough where we never felt crowded. The kitchen had everything we needed and the patio deck was great for grilling and hanging out. As far as location, wow, we were so close to everything. We walked to Duval all week long. We rode our bikes to Ft Zachary Taylor park (didn't explore the whole park but it was beautiful and the beach area is great), the bike ride there is care free, no worries about too many cars or tight roads. The unit was even pretty close to the pool. If and when we return to Key West, we will be looking at getting this unit again. The one and only suggestion I would have for the owner is to maybe place a small dresser in the closets as we had nowhere to store our clothes and had to live out of our suitcases which was a little of a pain but it wasn't the end of the world. The owner was super friendly.

Owner's Response: We very much enjoyed you staying with us. Glad you had a great time. I will look at placing a dresser inside each of the closets. Thanks for the advice. We need to know what we can make better for our guests. Please come again.

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time. Located just inside the historic Truman annex, literally just walking minutes from famous Duval St. The condominium is furnished with everything you may need and has all virtually new appliances and decor. The beds are ultra comfortable, almost to the point where you won't want to get out of bed. The large back deck offers quiet privacy and solitude as you relax. The location also offers visitors a short walk to FT. Zachory Taylor state park and a beautiful beach. It is obvious that the owners take pride in their home and offer a beautiful, relaxing stay in old Town Key West. We will definitely stay here again if available. Awesome vacation!
