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 is a very nice condo that is very modern and makes for a nice place to stay when on the island.

  • 5 of 5

I was so happy to see that the pictures online were exactly what we got. Beautiful condo with owners who provide the basics. Loved that each bedroom had a tv and the layout was very functional. The gated parking was also a nice benefit as well as being so close to the guard shack you just felt like everything was safe. Sharon one of the guards at the shack is amazingly funny and we really enjoyed her. Kathleen is also amazing. We called when we accidentally locked the door behind us but left house keys on kitchen counter. She answered phone on second ring and we were in the unit in 2 minutes. I would recommend this unit to anyone traveling to Key West. One helpful tip if you are a snorkeler, we found Higgs Beach to have the best snorkeling and marine life even over Fort Zachary. Plus you can actually walk on sand at Higgs Beach. I would say be aware of sand fleas no matter what so avoid laying on the beach. They are everywhere. They bite and can be very painful!!!

Perfect location and Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end we had a fantastic stay! The Bowmans were good communicators and a pleasure to deal with. The home is so cute and perfect for two or a small family. We used the 2nd bedroom for our suitcases and our clothes -- since there were only two of us we were able to spread out a bit. The full kitchen is well equipped...and the backyard is a really nice sized deck with a new table/chairs for 6 and a grill. They also have bikes you can use which is handy if you want to go to Ft Zachary beach. But the best part is location, location, location. If you haven't been to Key West before this is one of the best locations. You are close to the beach (and beaches are at a premium in KW) AND super close to all of the "crazy" of Duval. But at the same time the quiet retreat in Truman Annex makes you feel a million miles a way! The community pool is big, lots of chairs and a fun place to meet other visitors. You won't be disappointed if you pick this spot!

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.
