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 find something new to do.

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

John and I were very happy with condo, it was a very nice, clean and had everything we needed. We loved the deck for just hanging out. Location was also very good with walking distance everywhere we wanted to go and really enjoyed our stay. Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo.

BEST CONDO, BEST LOCATION, BEST OWNER IN KEY WEST!

  • 5 of 5
WE JUST RETURNED FROM KEY WEST ON NOV.11, 2014 AND WE WISH WE COULD HAVE STAYED IN JEAN'S "ISLAND ESCAPE" FOREVER!!! WE HAD STAYED PREVIOUSLY IN KEY WEST ON SMATHER'S BEACH, AND EVEN THOUGH IT IS A VERY NICE BEACH, THAT EXPERIENCE DID NOT COME CLOSE TO THE TIME WE HAD IN JEAN'S "ISLAND ESCAPE" IN THE TRUMAN ANNEX. WE JUST DROVE THE SHORT DRIVE TO SMATHER'S BEACH WHEN WE WANTED TO SPEND TIME THERE, WHICH WAS ONLY ONE TIME IN THE WEEK WE WERE IN KEY WEST, BECAUSE WE DIDN'T WANT TO TAKE TIME AWAY FROM THE BEAUTIFUL "ISLAND ESCAPE" AND ALL IT HAS TO OFFER. THE CONDO ITSELF IS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. IT OFFERS EVERYTHING YOU COULD POSSIBLY NEED IN A "HOME AWAY FROM HOME". IT WAS THE MOST COMFORTABLE CONDO WE HAVE EVER STAYED IN ANYWHERE, AND WE HAVE STAYED IN A LOT OF DIFFERENT CONDOS ON VACATIONS. THE COVERED PORCH IS TO DIE FOR. IT IS HUGE!!! YOU COULD JUST LIVE OUT THERE, AND VERY COMFORTABLY, BECAUSE OF THE PRIVACY AND THE TWO CEILING FANS ON IT. WE SPENT A LOT OF TIME OUT THERE AND JUST LOVED THE PEACE AND QUIET IT OFFERED. THE GROUNDS OF TRUMAN ANNEX ARE BEAUTIFUL AND VERY, VERY WELL KEPT, AS IS THE POOL AREA. WE SPENT A LOT OF TIME AT THE POOL AND MET SOME OF THE NICEST PEOPLE, SOME OWNERS AND OTHERS JUST VACATIONERS LIKE OURSELVES. WE ENJOYED THE CONVERSATIONS WITH ALL OF THEM.

WE REALLY ENJOYED BEING WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF EVERY-
THING WE REALLY WANTED TO DO IN KEY WEST. WHEN WE STAYED ON SMATHER'S BEACH BEFORE, WE HAD TO DRIVE EVERYWHERE WE WENT. THAT WAS VERY MUCH AN INCONVENIENCE, AND PARKING WAS A NIGHTMARE. EVEN WHEN WE FINALLY FOUND A PARKING SPACE, WE HAD TO MAKE SURE WE PUT IN ENOUGH MONEY FOR THE AMOUNT OF TIME WE WOULD BE GONE. IF WE DIDN'T, WE WOULD HAVE TO RUN ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE CAR TO PUT MORE MONEY IN OR RISK GETTING A TICKET. STAYING IN JEAN'S "ISLAND ESCAPE", WE COULD WALK EVERYWHERE WE WANTED AND BE GONE AS LONG AS WE WANTED WITHOUT ANY WORRIES. IT WAS WONDERFUL!!! ALSO, WE FELT VERY SAFE COMING BACK TO THE PROPERTY VERY LATE AT NIGHT BECAUSE THERE WAS VERY GOOD SECURITY SURROUNDING THE PROPERTY.

AND LASTLY, BUT FAR FROM LEAST, IS JEAN, THE OWNER. SHE IS JUST WONDERFUL TO DEAL WITH. SHE NEVER FAILED TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS I HAD AND RETURNED MY E-MAILS SO QUICKLY. WE WILL NEVER STAY ANYWHERE IN KEY WEST BUT JEAN'S "ISLAND ESCAPE".
THANK YOU, JEAN, FOR EVERYTHING!!!

BEAUTIFUL CONDO - BEST LOCATION EVER!!!!

  • 5 of 5
THIS WAS JUST OUR 2nd VACATION TO KEY WEST. LAST NOVEMBER WE STAYED AT LA BRISA CONDOS ACROSS FROM SMATHER'S BEACH. THE CONDO WAS BEAUTIFUL AND THE VIEW OF SMATHER'S BEACH AND THE OCEAN WAS WONDERFUL. SMATHER'S BEACH IS VERY LONG AND NICE TO LAY OUT AND WALK ON, BUT WE HAD TO DRIVE EVERY-WHERE WE WENT AND WORRY ABOUT FINDING PARKING (WHICH WASN'T EASY). THIS YEAR WE WANTED A TOTALLY DIFFERENT VIEW
OF KEY WEST BY STAYING HERE IN THE TRUMAN ANNEX AND BEING ABLE TO WALK EVERYWHERE AND EXPERIENCING THE HISTORIC DISTRICT. WE ARE SO GLAD THAT WE MADE THAT DECISION. WE LOVE IT!!! THE CONDO IS AMAZING - BEAUTIFUL, IT HAS ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME, THE COVERED BACK PORCH IS SO PRIVATE AND THE LARGEST PORCH I HAVE EVER SEEN. THE LOCATION OF THE CONDO IS WONDERFUL!!! YOU CAN WALK TO ABOUT ANYWHERE YOU WOULD WANT TO GO. WE WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS CONDO TO ANY FAMILY OR FRIENDS THAT WOULD BE COMING TO KEY WEST. THERE ISN'T ANYTHING THAT COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER. THE OWNER, JEAN, WAS SO NICE AND CARING ABOUT OUR NEEDS. THE ENTIRE EXPIERENCE FROM THE TIME OF BOOKING UNTIL THE TIME OF THE END OF OUR VACATION HAS BEEN NOTHING SHORT OF GREAT!!! WE LOOK FORWARD ALREADY TO OUR NEXT KEY WEST VACATION AND , WITHOUT A DOUBT, STAYING AT JEAN'S "ISLAND ESCAPE"!!! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH, JEAN, FOR SHARING YOUR LOVELY HOME IN PARADISE WITH US.

Nowhere could have been better

This condo was in the perfect location, with a great feeling of added security behind the gates of the community. Within walking distance of everything fun: Duval, Mallory, and Ft Taylor beach!
The condo itself was everything a small family or couple would need for a long vacation. Plenty of room and very nice interior and finishings!
Would not hesitate to recommend to family and friends and will be booking again in the future! We have found our repeat Key West getaway!

From the stain glass front door to the bright well done decor it was a wonderful condo. Perfect couple retreat, loved sitting on large balcony, pool was nice and condo is centrally located within walking distance to everything. Mangoes for white linen dining, Jack Flats for best Rueben ever, Caroline's Cafe for all other dining needs. Nice property, enjoyed whole experience.
