About Jean Kemp

About the Owners: When not in Key West my husband and I live and own a business in Kansas. We have 2 sons and 5 grandchildren. We have owned in Truman Annex Shipyard since 2001. After visiting a few times we fell in love with Key West and knew we had to own. It is a pleasure to share our condo with others so they can also fall in love with this beautiful historic city. After all these years of visiting we still enjoy and love this historical city.

Jean Kemp purchased this condo in 2011

Why Jean Kemp chose Key West

The Truman Annex is the perfect location, you are close to everything, it's quiet. You don't need a car, you can walk or bike everywhere on this 2x4 mile island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We noticed some new things you have added to the condo since we were here in November – looks great!! Thank you so much, Jean, for allowing us to share your beautiful piece of paradise again. We can’t tell you how much we appreciate it.

All the best of Key West within walking Distance

  • 5 of 5

Jean and Lowell do a great job keeping this beautiful property clean and well supplied with everything you need. This is a great place for two people to escape life for a while, but keep all the amenities of home at hand. If you are looking to explore Key West the location really doesn't get much better; walking distance to all the major attractions, but off the beaten path enough to get some peace and quite when you need it.

Even better than before!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd straight year my wife and I have stayed at this property and it only got better this time. We love the location, the proximity to an excellent pool in the condo complex and the quietness of the environment so close to the bustle of Duval Street and the Green Parrot Bar. Why was this year even better? The owner further improved the furnishing with a new bed and some new porch furniture. One of my favorite things about the property is the spectacular covered porch....I spend as much time as I can there when not out and about. In short, the week here is a highlight of our ywar and we hope to make next year number 4!

Perfect Choice

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I stayed at Island Escape for 1 week this September. The condo was well kept, clean, and had all the amenities of home. The unit is perfectly sized for 2 people. Best part was the short walk to Duval St and Fort Zachery Taylor beach. We would recommend this place for anyone considering a Key West vacation.

Clean & very easy to navigate Key West. I would stay here again anytime. The pool was also great to relax in and the porch is huge and private.

Had another wonderful Key West vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I come to Key West every year and always stay in the Truman Annex. We have always been pleased and this year was no exception. Jean and Lowell's condo is nicely decorated and just the right size for two people. It is very conveniently located too. Getting to meet both Jean and Lowell put the perfect cap on another perfect week in Key West.
