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

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.

Great Key West Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Key West in November of 2017. The condo was great and had everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable and made for a great sleep after long days out and about. We used the bikes once or twice because everything we needed was within walking distance to the condo. The only problem we had was the condo above us was being renovated/worked on so we were awoken every single morning by 8:00am because of hammering, nail guns, and other working equipment. Hopefully this is finished soon and shouldn't be a problem for anyone else coming to visit. Thanks again to the Bowmans...we would definitely stay here again!

Amazing condo with hospitality to boot

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing condo - exactly what is shown in the photos. We stayed for a week with our kids (college students) and were blocks away from all the action. We walked everywhere and there are bikes included with the condo to bike around the island. Got a call from the owner the weekend prior to our stay and got great tips on where to eat, what to do, where to see the sunset without all the tourists and main roads to keep in mind while traversing the island on bikes. Would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a fabulous place to stay with just enough room for everyone to have their own space. And definitely take advantage of the wonderful back deck!

Key West Comfort

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been to Key West before so returning there was high on our list. We were lucky to find this property to rent ( Very Lucky). We have traveled all over the world and when we look to rent a vacation spot we take what the pictures of a property with a grain of salt. This wonderful condo delivered in every way, from the moment we stepped in the front door we felt right at home. This place IS Key West!!! Jim Bowman ( the owner) promised and delivered a great place to stay! We knew our way around Truman Annex as we have stayed there before so there were no surprises for us, just a great place to stay and this location is perfect , private enough and just a short walk to Duvall Street. The owners of this unit made everything simple and easy for us , Jim is a pleasure to deal with and he made us feel like friends coming to visit. My wife and I love to bike and the bicycles that came along with this unit were a nice addition and we used them every day. The pros of staying at this property are many , perfect for a couple and roomy enough if you have a guest or two, clean and well appointed all around, spacious deck with a grill for entertaining at home and cooking out. This is a 5 star place to stay and we recommend to any and all . We didn't mention the cons because there aren't any. We will definitely come back to Key West and when we do we know where we'll be staying..... thanks Jim.

Hurricane Irma Cut our Trip Short

  • 5 of 5

I gave the review a 5 star because although our vacation was cut short by 4 days due to Hurricane Irma. The property was beautiful and Jim was so gracious in giving us suggestions on what to do while in Key West. The condo has everything you could need down to the beach towels. Truman Annex is central to everything in Key West, yet quiet and beautifully landscaped. We will be back and we will stay at Majestic Paradise when Jim can get the place reopened.

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.
