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 China 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

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!

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!

Always our first choice

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!

Our Visit December 2013

  • Submitted: Dec 12, 2013

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!!!!!

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.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. Please visit again soon!

Staying in your condo during our 2 weeks in Key West was the absolutely wonderful. You provided everything we could have possibility needed!! The decor is so tropical and the bed linens were every bit as nice as a 5-star hotel!!!! The patio was so nice, especially the 2 ceiling fans!! The large plants out there gave us the feeling we were in the tropics and added to the privacy. We are already trying to plan another visit and will definitely keep your number handy. The location is the best on the island...close to practically everything, very safe and quiet. The beach chairs (with the built in cooler) came in handy on our visits to Fort Zachary which was only a 10 min. walk. Can't think of anything that could have made it any nicer!! Your beautiful condo helped to make this trip to KW the best one so far.
