About Sherri MacKenzie-Ritchie
We are Canadians and We LOVE to travel and have visited many different places over the past 12 years since we met..... Cuba, New Zealand, Korea, Spain, Germany, Holland, Ecuador, Scotland, Australia, many trips to the US, Florida, California, and Maine, and we have also visited a number of places in our own country, Vancouver, Toronto, Niagara Falls, Montreal, Quebec City, PEI, Newfoundland, etc. It is always our preference to stay in a privately owned condo or cottage when the opportunity is available. We enjoy being able to have our coffee in the morning, having a fridge on hand for beverages and snacks and most importantly a comfortable spot to relax at the end of each day!
Sherri MacKenzie-Ritchie purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Sherri MacKenzie-Ritchie chose Midtown
In 2010 we purchased our 1st property in Key West it is located in Old Town/Truman Annex..... it is Lovely however this is a larger property and is more suitable for our extended stays. Located on the Atlantic side of the island this is one of my favorite places to ride my bike with the wide bicycle paths that skirt the beach and the Atlantic Ocean. It is very relaxing and less congested than Old Town, the grounds are absolutely beautiful and we very much enjoy the pool, whirl pool and natural beach area... this is where we stay for extended periods.
What makes this Condo unique
This property offers the feeling of a high end resort. there is no room service, front desk or bell men.....but..... the grounds are absolutely beautiful, well manicured and very well maintained. the Olympic sized pool, whirl pool, private natural beach area and sauna are all highlights and if you want to 'play' at the beach Smathers Beach just around the corner offers you many options. Because we include the use of 2 Adult Bikes, you are never far from anywhere or anything. We prefer to use the bikes as our main mode of transportation when in Key West it is the slower pace that allows you to truly relax and take in all of the little wonders.....

Beautiful & even better than the pictures!
The condo was beautifully decorated and the view from the deck was great! Everything was even better than photos showed. We also appreciated the location- easy to get to everything including the best beach (v short walk) and southernmost point and Duval. Thanks SO much for sharing your property with us!!
So glad that you enjoyed...... and that you liked the location....it works very well for us when we are there.
Quiet and clean
Our condo was very clean and quiet. It had a great pool/hot tub and within walking distance to the beach. The bikes were nice to have also since it was a little far from Duval st. Great experience
Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. So glad that you enjoyed the bikes, they are certainly our preferred mode of transportation around Key West because you can always find parking for them and it's free. You are correct we are a little removed from the hectic pace on Duval St but with the bikes you are about a 15 minute ride to the far end of Duval where all of the action is and Sunset at Mallory Square you are about a 7 minute ride to the South end of Duval and the Southern Most Point and we are located next to Smathers Beach. Because the Island is so small 1 1/2 miles wide and 4 1/2 miles long you are never far from anything. Hope that the Key West Attitude will stay with all winter long.
This unit is everything you see in pictures and more. The owner has filled it with cute and classy decor and the spacious unit was just what we needed for 3 of us on a girls trip. The beds were very comfy and the kitchen had everything that we needed for cooking and prepping our meals. The furniture and linens were very upscale. Sherri was quite helpful in her suggestions of places to go and both convenient and thrifty shopping. The bikes were great and we easily rented a third bike. Chairs,coolers and towels for the beach were also welcome. The pool and the grounds were just awesome. As our visit was on the very tail end of the hurricane (Michael), we were worried about the weather, but we really had no impact except for some seaweed and accompanying odor. Once you went a little way up the beach, you could no longer smell this We also had a slight problem with the shower, but put a call into Sherri and she got back with a solution. Overall, this was truly a great location and dealings with the owner. We will return! Thanks!
Thanks for the great review and thank you for letting me know about the shower. We are always glad to hear from our guests even if it to let us know that something needs attention. If I don't know that it's broken I can't fix it and sometimes things such as adjusting the water temperature in the shower isn't evident to the cleaning company. So glad that you had a great time and we look forward to your return.
Property was further from Mallory Square than expected.
(1). Property contained lots of personal property of the owner.
(2). Copious instructions on many things including the need to use a specific wash cycle of the washing machines.
(3). You cannot stay at this property unless you have your own transport or use the bicycles on offer; clearly not for people from countries that normally travel on the left side of the road.
(4). Recommendations offered by property owner did not contain addresses; you had to google it. There was an Irish pub just down the road that we would highly recommend which was not in the recommended locations.
(5). There was a constant leak of the shower heads which apparently had been known for sometime. This could not be repaired (hot water system needed a part to be ordered) during our stay and the constant running drips meant we had to have the bathroom door closed at nights to have a decent night's sleep.
Apartment was very well equipped and exceptionally clean with super cute and funky decor. Comfortable bed. Spacious living area and balcony. The pool was huge. Both pool and surrounding grounds were very well maintained. Sherri guided us through getting settled in with clear and helpful emails. She also made great recommendations for local services, restaurants, and activities. We couldn’t have asked for more.
Thanks for the great review. So happy that we were able to Exceed your Expectations..... Hurry Back!
Awesome condo on the Atlantic!
It can be nerve racking to book a condo when traveling. Do the pictures match the real thing? Is it in a good neighborhood? Should I just try a hotel? This condo was incredible. The pictures are accurate. My husband said if anything the pool picture does not do the pool justice. You walk through a beautiful gardens to the pool and you overlook the ocean. The bikes are a great bonus! There is no need to rent a car.
I would definitely take advantage of Sherri’s recommendations! Her restaurant suggestions were spot on.
If you are looking for a place outside of the craziness of Duval Street this is the place for you!
Thank you so much for the great review and affirmation that we are "As Advertised" We love the whimsy of this condo, and take great pride in our home. You are right I need share more pictures of the courtyard and pool/hot tub area. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Key West has it ALL!!!!!!!! This little island paradise is only 1 1/2 miles wide and 4 miles long. With that in mind you are never far from anything. Smathers Beach is just around the corner there you can partake in Wind Surfing, Snorkeling, Jet Skiing, Para Sailing, Sunning.... the list is endless! This area of Town offers up a number of excellent restaurants, a short Bike ride will get you to Duval St, Sunset and Buskers at Mallory Square, Fort Zachary Taylor State Park and Beach, Key West Eco-Discovery Center. If you want to spend the day at the Beach and the evening on Duval this is the perfect location!
