About Sherri MacKenzie-Ritchie

We LOVE to travel...We reside just outside of Halifax, NS, in Canada. In the past 8 years we have visited Cuba, New Zealand, Spain, Germany, Holland twice, Several US visits to Florida, California and Maine and several visits to some of our Capital Cities here in Canada, Vancouver, Toronto, Quebec City, Ecuador and Asia is next after that. Although we love to experience new cultures and new places we have decided to make Key West our second home when we escape the cold winters here in Atlantic Canada.

Sherri MacKenzie-Ritchie purchased this condo in 2010

Why Sherri MacKenzie-Ritchie chose Key West

I have been visiting Key West for almost 30 years it is amazing and it has many faces...... here in the Shipyard you are close to all of the action, walking distance to pretty much everything ...the floral and fauna is beautiful....but most of it is the ATTITUDE!!!!! Come in, sit down, relax..... the pace is never hurried.... always relaxed..... not to say there isn't excitement in Key West.....just stroll Duval..... This is our Paradise!

What makes this condo unique

The Island is only 1 1/2 miles wide and 4 miles long so you are never far from anything. I have been visiting Truman Annex in Key West for almost 30 years now, never did I think that one day I would have a place her to call our own......I introduced my then fiance to Key West in 2008.... he got it.... and Fell in LOVE with the place we were fortunate to find this property in 2010 and the rest is history..... The feelings that are evoked when we walk through the door are hard to explain.... when we arrive the first thing we do is check the bikes.... oh how we love our bikes... then with beverage in hand we head to the back patio, turn on the overhead fans...... and let the moment sink in.... WE are here PARADISE... all of the stresses of the real world melt away...... it is truly magical!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just returned home from a wonderful Key West get away..... but it is a working visit for us. We take great pride in OUR Vacation home and want ALL of our Guests to have a wonderful Experience when they visit. On our most recent trip we painted the back deck, gave the bar-b-que a through cleaning, planted a couple of orchids, installed some landscape lighting, decided that the dinning table was just too big, so purchased a smaller 4 person table and chair set in white to complement the rest of the décor, a couple sets of sheets and new stainless steel pots and pans (the old ones were getting scratched up) but the most significant change were the mattresses.... although we were assured by our friends that they were very comfortable we decided that they just weren't good enough soooooo we purchased all new Beauty Rest - Recharge mattresses with special anti-bacterial mattress covers......Now you can play all day and sleep sound at night. We want to thank ALL that have visited with us in the past and ALL who will come in the future. Remember It's ALL in the Attitude Key West!!!!!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time staying in this unit. It is so lovely! It was the perfect size for my husband and I, plus another couple. Everything you need is there, all you need to bring are your belongings and some groceries. The outdoor area and grill are great, as are the bikes. We loved having a washer and dryer in the unit - so convenient. The unit is in walking distance to all the great attractions! Sherri was very helpful and communicative during the booking process! I would highly recommend staying here and I would stay again!

Owner's Response: So glad that you enjoyed your time with us. It is our vacation home too so we attempt to make sure that you have everything that you will need for your day to day living. The beds were replaced in Feb 2014 and each time we visit I go through all of the bedding etc. to make sure it is in good shape, replacing what is tired.......We will be visiting in the next 10 days to meet with contractors, the plan is to do a complete gut of the Kitchen, all new appliances and cabinets, tear out the current tub and install a retro fit walk in shower with a couple of shower heads, new bathroom vanity and toilet...... also we hope to replace both sets of patio doors...... this work will be completed during the month of December when we are there....... Thank you once again for selecting Attitude Key West and please hurry back!

A cozy retreat with a great location!

  • 5 of 5
This property was perfect for our family of two adults and one child, but would comfortably sleep 4 adults. The place was very clean and well maintained, and equipped with everything we needed for our week long stay. The location is excellent, as well. It was a very short walk to the pool in the complex, but far enough off the beaten path to not be bothered by noise from the pool or the road. There was a grocery 2 blocks away for any supplies we forgot; one block beyond that and you are in the heart of the action on Duval St. The bikes were a great way to get around, and saved us some $$ since we did not have to rent! And I must mention how comfortable the beds are! Just a nice touch to help you fully relax on your vacation. Sherri was very responsive and easy to work with, and I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone! Hopefully we will return. Thanks, Sherri!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review. We just replaced all of the mattresses in Feb 2014, with Beauty Rest - Recharge mattresses...... this is our home and we really enjoy getting feed back from our guests. The bikes are one of my favourite things in Key West period....... you get around without a lot of effort, parking isn't an issue and you slow down to notice what is going on around you. Please hurry back! Remember it is ALL in the Attitude Key West!

Attitude Key West: A Special Experience

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Attitude Key West in November was so special that we continue to speak fondly of our time both at the condo and of our ability to walk to so many shops, attractions and restaurants. Great care has obviously been taken to ensure that the visitor has the best possible experience. It is evident everywhere at Attitude Key West. For example, parking access was effortless and convenient, that Winn Dixie card made shopping for groceries a breeze, having bicycles at your fingertips, no guessing where to visit because all of the information needed is provided, pool access is convenient, the beds are extremely comfortable and the decor is inviting and pleasant while the deck envelopes you in a warm tropical environment. To top all of this off is the very pleasant experience that we had arranging all of this with the owners (Sherri and Michael). Sherri ensured that we were not wanting for anything. From start to finish we cannot think of anything to improve upon. Yes, we highly recommend Attitude Key West and are confident that a short walk in any direction will be satisfying. Of the many things to do and see we especially enjoyed the Conch Train tour, Capt. Tony's and (our personal favorite watering hole - The Green Parrot.... Sound Check Friday afternoon is a 'must do') Visit again? Definitely! - Bob and Mary

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently returned from a week at Attitude Key West. I spent hours reviewing possible lodging options and we were thrilled with our decision to stay here! It fit our needs perfectly. Having the bikes available was the tipping point for us, we rode them everyday! The pool was great, the deck with the fans so very relaxing, great tv and free wireless, and beach essentials waiting for us ..... Mike and Sherri you've thought of everything. Thanks again for sharing your condo!

Always our first choice

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time staying at the Attitudes condo. It's the first place we check for availability when we're planning a trip to Key West. The bikes were a big selling point for us initially but our first visit (2012) sealed the deal. This condo is clean and very well maintained. Within Truman Annex it is located close to the pool but far enough away to avoid pool noise. The new beds are amazingly comfortable and the linens, towels, etc. are top notch. We love being so close to Ft. Zach beach, Duval and the Faustos grocery. The plantings in the back porch area help provide more privacy than some other condos we see in the complex. Wireless worked flawlessly. The owner is great to work with and is responsive.
This was our 6th visit to Key West. We stayed at hotels the first three times (The Sheraton, then Southernmost and then their B&B). Fourth visit we decided to try a condo to save some $$ on meals. And after finding Attitudes there's zero good reason to go back to staying at hotels. Honestly, I'd kind of like to keep this place a secret but we can't stay there all year and I like the owner so much that I want to make sure she keeps offering it as a vacation rental!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. We do try to make things as comfortable as possible after all this is OUR vacation home too. I wish that we could be there during the cold winter months.... this is our escape, unfortunately we can't be there all of the time so it only makes sense to share it with others and without YOU our GUESTS we wouldn't be able to own this wonderful piece of paradise. Upon our arrival we take the bikes out and make sure that everything is in working order, replace anything that needs to be replaced (I got a new bell ;-)) this is our preferred mode of transportation when we are there. No hassles with parking, easy to get around, and you tend to explore more of the side streets and truly get the feel of the island besides it is good exercise and really slows the pace. I am so glad that you enjoy the back patio, that is where we start and end our day, under the palm trees with the orchids. We stayed there in early December and although the beds weren't "bad" (I've certainly slept in worse at good hotels) they weren't up to our standards at home and isn't that what a vacation is all about to pamper yourself and come back feeling rested and rejuvenated....how can you do that if you don't get a good nights sleep....the new mattresses are Beauty Rest - Recharge and I agree they are very comfy..... on each visit I inspect all of the linens and dispose of the ones that are getting tired (I don't like to use worn out linens why would OUR GUESTS)and replace them with new quality linens. We look forward to having you visit with us again....... Stay warm.... remember it is ALL in the Attitude Key West!

The best place to soak in the Key West Attitude.

  • 5 of 5
I really enjoyed this super quiet, clean, condo that feels removed and peaceful, but yet extremely close to everything. Booking, access, and the complete experience was wonderful. I can't wait to go back.
