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

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.

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 condo is in a terrific location!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are so glad to have been able to stay at Majestic Paradise again. This was our second time staying here. Beautifully updated and modern kitchen and appliances. The back deck is so inviting any time of the day or night with it’s lovely orchids, bamboo and hibiscus. The great additions are the bicycles, which we used everyday; and a very rare grill on the back deck. We can’t wait to be able to return for a third stay.

Great Locatioin/Great Property

  • 5 of 5

There are so many positive reviews already posted, we can confirm all are accurate. Jim is great to work with, readily available if needed.

We consider ourselves somewhat particular where we stay, but it was an easy decision to make plans to return next year.

Week at Truman annex

  • 5 of 5

It was our first stay in that part of key west and we loved the location. Close enough to everything but away from the party noises of Duval street. The unit was cozy and comfortable and we enjoyed the patio out back. I especially enjoyed the orchids growing on the trees and the morning sounds of the roosters! The beds were nice and it was nice having towels for our boat trip. We would definitely stay there again.

We stay here every year and love everything about it. Location is great and having a parking place is wonderful even though you do not need a car everything is within walking distances. Also the owner is great to work with and the neighbors are very nice. If scoring we would give this rental a10.

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.
