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 Key West

Truman Annex is located 2 blks from Duval and all the Old Town Key West attractions. Walk or bike ride to the best beaches on the island, Fort Zachary Park & Beach. A must do is Mallory Square where you will find local art & fabulous street performers. Conch Train Tour will give you a great way to see all of the island and hear about the history of Key West. Hemmingway's House is a fascinating, learn about this legendary author & his six toed cats. The Key West Aquarium is great for kids as well as for adults. 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.

What makes this condo unique

Bicycles are included at no charge, Beautiful gated community of Truman Annex. Location! Location! Location! You are close to beach, attractions, historical sites, live music, fabulous eating!

No need for a car. You can walk or ride everywhere. No car needed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I enjoyed my week long stay at the Conch Retreat. We came down during Fantasy Fest and this lovely home was both reasonably priced and wonderfully located. I was relieved that every thing was as the listing said it would be. The owner Jean was always available whenever we needed anything prior and during our stay.

I would recommend this condo to anyone traveling to Key west!"

Great unit in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The Conch Retreat is a well kept, well appointed unit on the 2nd floor. It's in a great location in Key West. We had driven to Florida, but only used our car for one day when we drove back to No Name Key to see the Key Deer. Otherwise, we were able to walk everywhere. Duval Street (lots of restaurants and shops) is only a few blocks away and it is only a 10 minute walk to Mallory Square for sunset. Although we didn't use the bikes that are available, I,m sure they would have been handy if we wanted to get places a little faster than by walking. This is the best VRBO/Home Away rental we have used so far. Highly recommended

The Kemp's condo at Truman Annex was awesome. Close to everything but far away enough to be a nice quiet retreat. Lush trees surround the property and the pool area. The condo is super comfortable with the obvious advantages of a kitchen and laundry which make the stay so much nicer than a hotel. One of the bikes had an issue with the tire and the Kemps addressed it immediately without fuss or muss.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat! <3

Place was just as advertised.Close to everything,but not too close.We have stayed at 5 star hotels for more money and we had a better stay here.

Bikes are a nice touch.

Perfect spot for my wife and 2 adult sons.

This condo is comfortable and convenient.

  • 4 of 5

A nice thing about the second floor condo are the balconies on both the front and back. It was a nice week, so we had the doors open and got a lovely breeze. And it was close to some very nice restaurants, Blue Heaven and Santiago Bodega, and 2 blocks from Duval, but still very quiet.

Clean, quiet area in Truman Annex

  • 5 of 5

Everything worked out great. Our condo was exactly as described on the website. We enjoyed both decks and the area was very quiet. Enjoyed being able to spend time at the pool, too. Bikes came in handy several times during our stay. Thinking about another trip to Key West in the future. Thanks.
