About Jean Kemp
We fell in love with Key West when visiting with friends. It's history, traditions, warm waters, great weather, free spirited life-style. It is a dream come true to own this condo and to share it with others so they can also fall in love with this caribbean paradise.
Jean Kemp purchased this Condo in 2001
Why Jean Kemp chose Old Town
Truman Annex is a beautiful gated community. It's location says it all as you're close to everything. Key West is a 2x4 island. You can walk or rides bikes everywhere. Fort Zachary Park & Beach you can swim, snorkel, bring food to grill and just relax. The Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center is a new facility and free. You can take a journey and discover the native animals & plants of the Keys.

Loved our stay and the close proximity to all of our favorite places.
We loved Conch Retreat. It was exceptional. It was beautifully furnished and decorated, spacious, comfortable, and had all of the amenities that one could possibly want or need. The location within Shipyard Condos was fantastic. It was our first time to stay at Conch Retreat and we plan on many more visits. Jean and Lowell were great, as our scheduled stay was soon after Hurricane Irma and we were uncertain whether to reschedule our trip. They kept us informed of the status of the property and when tourists were allowed back to Key West and even called some of our favorite places to determine if they would be open and back in business before we arrived. They were so gracious and kind. We couldn't have asked for more. We were thrilled to return to Key West to enjoy our vacation and provide support to the grateful owners of restaurants and shops that were already open. Key West is our favorite vacation destination and we have been coming for years. Conch Retreat is now our favorite place to stay.
Thank you for the awesome review! It was lovely working with you and appreciate you deciding to go ahead on your vacation and supporting local business. Look forward to working with you in the future and hope you get to return soon to the Southernmost City. Jean
Great place to stay
The condo is in walking distance of all the main attractions in Key West but far enough away not to disturbed by all the various bars and restaurants. Lovely friendly community. Don't have anything negative to say! If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Key West then look no further!
Quaint little place in a great location.
We stayed one week and this place was a great place to return to each day. Pretty much everything you need is in the unit, plus the bikes are a fabulous addition. You can get almost anywhere by foot, bike, bus, taxi, or Uber. There is really no need for a car unless you want to drive up the keys. Look in the closets for the “extras”; beach chairs, extra bedding, bike pump and helmets, and more bath towels. The pool was closed during our stay but we managed without it. The unit owner has no control over that so there is no need to complain about it. It has to be serviced at some point! Jean was WONDERFUL to work with! I would not hesitate to recommend this place, or any of her places, for folks who want a bit more space than a hotel room and the quiet away from Duval St. Someday we will return!!!
Really glad you enjoyed your stay! Love repeat customers and you are always very welcome guests. Hope you got to enjoy the new park behind the complex. Safe travels and hope you get to come and enjoy Key West again soon. Jean
My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. The location can not be beat. It was close enough to Duval Street and the beach for us to ride our bikes. We flew in and ubered to the condo. We never had to rent a car or scooter. The owner provides bikes and that’s all we needed. The condo was very clean and fully stocked. The balconies are great for breakfast in the morning. Loved our entire experience!
Great Condo in a Great Location!
This condo met all our needs for the week. Loved waking up in the morning and enjoying the sunshine on the back balcony. Or jumping on one of the bikes & riding to Fort Zachary Taylor Park to do Yoga on the Beach. The pool was nice, had tables with umbrellas, loungers & restrooms. There were four beach towels for our use. Having the bikes was a great perk! We loved riding them around the island. The kitchen was well stocked. A couple of blocks from Duval Street. Jean was very prompt in responding to my emails. I would definitely stay here again!
Perfect vacation condo
Conch Retreat is a well appointed condo in the gated Truman Annex. Great location--walk to Beach, restaurants, and historic sites in Old Town. We like the fact that it is in a quiet community.
