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.

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

Great location for biking to the best beach in KW; near some of the best eateries too! La creperie, Virgilio's, and Jack Flats wasabi tuna 👍� best TVs for sports too! The Rum Bar is a must. The happy hours and 1/2 apps are endless ALL OVER the island! We cooked and ate our catch from our Gulfstream IV trip. The Tropic cinema is a must, just a block or so away.

Coffee every am on the shady porch with our yummies we bring home from The French Bakery on Duval.

The condo is very well equipped to support our KW temporary home 🌺�

Great location to everything Key West. Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

First time to Key West for my wife and I. the condo was very clean, we'll stocked and cozy. The back porch was a great place to sit and enjoy the weather. The pool was awesome. An amazing location to basically everything you want to see in Key West. You're two blocks, an easy walk to Duval Street, but far enough off to avoid noise. It's peaceful and can say wothout reservation, my best vacation in years. Already planning my next trip and will stay at Island Escape.

Better Than Advertised

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5/6 – 5/16/17. It was great staying in the condo rather that a hotel. Location is only 2 short blocks off Duval. The condo was well kept and well equipped with all the necessities. Renting was easy with Jean (Condo Owner) and she goes out of her way to ensure you have everything you need and she gives you contact numbers just in case (we didn’t need to use them). For dinner we enjoyed Blue Heaven the best (Just down the street. definitely try the Yellowfin Snapper on pasta). We hope to be back and will book with Jean.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the awesome review! So glad you enjoyed your vacation and stay at the Island Escape. Love the deck on this condo. Like having another room. You're very welcome guests and hope you get to return soon to this wonderful city. Thanks for the Blue Heaven suggestion. We'll have to try that next time. Jean

Loved Island Escape. Best location with close proximity to everywhere. Covered deck was fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

Key West is our favorite vacation spot. At Island Escape in Shipyard Condos, everything that we want to do is within a 15 minute walk. No need for a car or other transportation. The condo has everything we could possibly want, is the perfect size for two, and is always so nice and clean. What a great find. The only problem is that everybody else knows about it too and it is usually booked up a lot of times that we are interested in staying. I can't imagine a better location or place to stay. We love, love it here.

Island Escape is our second home

  • 5 of 5

This is our seventh year coming to Island Escape and we will continue again next year! Jean and Lowell always make us feel welcome and we are always pleased to see the changes that have been made in our "second home". This year it was a new couch, new refrigerator, changes in deck furniture and the very welcome addition of a closet organizer for the bedroom. Because we stay for an extended period, this was really appreciated. We enjoy Key West and Island Escape is situated such that you do not need to worry about transportation to anywhere in Old Town. We seldom touch the car even though it is parked conveniently right at the front door! We walk everywhere and enjoy what Key West has to offer. We have booked our 2018 time already and are looking forward to seeing our friends and Key West again next year!

The Truman Annex is located 2 blocks from Duval or Fort Zachory Beach. The famous Blue Heaven restaurant is 1 block as is the famous Green Parrot Bar. Hemingway house and Truman little White House is also very close.
