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.

This place is gorgeous!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was immaculate. And the pictures posted on the site are exactly as the the condo is. We were extremely happy to have the bicycles for our use during our stay. The kitchen is beautiful w all brand new appliances. We enjoyed our morning coffee out of the keurig on the back deck that has lovely flora. The deco is very Key West, airy and bright very tastefully done. It had all the amenities of home while being away from home. My husband and I will definitely book at this residence again for our next Key West vacation.

Relax in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Majestic Paradise at Truman Annex, we truly encountered a week of paradise in Key West. From the owners Jim and Colleen Bowman to their property manager Kathleen we couldn't have asked for a better vacation experience. The condo is very well maintained and is very clean, has a modern updated kitchen and appliances, two spacious bedrooms and a very clean full bath. It also comes with access to cable television but who needs cable TV when you are in Fabulous Key West! It also has a spacious attached rear deck with patio furniture and a gas grill which allows for extra living and dining area. The condo is centrally located so that experiencing Old Town Key West and the famous Duval St. is very easily accessed by walking just two (2) short blocks. In addition you have access to the homeowners association central pool which is superbly maintained and is heated. If laying on the beach is more preferable then a short walk will find the Fort Zachary Taylor State Park and its beach which is very clean and safe.

All in All, I would highly recommend to anyone looking for vacation rentals in Key West to seriously consider renting this property as it will truly offer you paradise! Outstanding!

Great condo at a great location in a wonderful vacation city

  • 5 of 5

Hi Jim We really enjoyed our stay at your condo very much. The size was perfect for us and was supplied with everything we needed. It was very comfortable and the location was perfect. Close to beaches and all old town Key West has to offer within walking distance. The bikes were a great added feature to add to the fun of Key West. Thanks for all your help getting us settled in.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week at this condo with a total of four guests. Location was beyond perfect in a semi-gated community which is clean, quiet (except for the roosters), and close to everything! We did not rent a car, as Key West is not that big and we could run all errands (including groceries from Publix) and go exploring (as far as Stock Island to the Hogfish Grill) with the two bikes supplied (we rented two more bikes from Eaton Bikes so we each had one). We loved having all the kitchen essentials you need to cook/grill/eat in if you wanted. The deck is where we spent most of our at home time and is nice and quiet and private. Jim was super helpful in making sure we had everything we needed and stayed in touch in case we had any questions. Our only regret is not booking this for two weeks! Thanks Jim!

Key West is a wonderful place to be whether you want to do water sports such as fishing, diving, snorkeling, boating, windsurfing, or you want to check out all the historical spots and museums, or bar hop. Key West has it all. Great restaurants, live entertainment whether in the bars or on the street. You might even run into a real live pirate! Many festivals throughout the year. Great place to bike or walk. A car is truly not needed.
