About Sherri MacKenzie-Ritchie

We LOVE to travel...We reside just outside of Halifax, NS, in Canada. In the past 10 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, Singapore and Thailand next we are headed to Scotland. 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 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 Key West for 30 years now and started staying in Truman Annex 20+ years ago, 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! Welcome to PARADISE!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are so very proud of our reno. It was a big project. We gutted the kitchen and bathroom. All new kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanity, Couples shower with rain shower and fixed/hand held shower head, custom frameless shower doors, comfort height toilet, contemporary vanity and medicine chest. Subway tile with spectacular glass accents. All new contemporary Ikea kitchen cabinets, stainless steel appliances including the Ultra quite dishwasher. Two new sets of Hurricane rated patio doors, with blinds between the glass, Freshly painted from top to bottom, fresh painted back patio, refinished stiletto tiles... there isn't a surface that hasn't been touched. We had holes everywhere in the ceiling and in the walls where we ran new electrical for the wall sconces and can lights in the ceiling. I replaced the eating utensils, bought some new dishes, and cooking utensils, replaced all of the towels and some of the bedding. We are delighted with the results..... it is truly OUR Paradise. We look forward to sharing our home with you!

Fabulous property and location!

  • 5 of 5

I have used VRBO many times for vacation properties over the years and have always been very impressed, but this one was "the bomb!"! Not only is the condo beautifully furnished, but the bed was comfy, the kitchen fully stocked with everything we needed, the shower was awesome, and the bikes provided were great! You are 3 short blocks off Duval St. in the private Truman Annex (with security gate guard) and 2 short blocks from The Green Parrot Bar! Location was perfect! Parked the car and never used it the whole week! There was a small problem with the wifi the first day (it was unplugged, as it happened!) and within hours we were in touch with owner who offered suggestions (like looking to see if it was somehow unplugged by housekeeping! Duh!). We highly recommend this condo for the great convenient location, the privacy, the handsomely furnished and very comfortable accomodations, and the very attentive owners!

A Wonderful Graduation Trip

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the Keys. We stopped along several of the Keys as we drove in (Feed the Tarpon at Robbies! and eat at Mrs. Mac's) to split up our drive a bit. We loved the condo- so close to everything! Within walking distance to Duval Street for all of the entertainment and restaurants, close to Mallory Square for the Sunset Festival, and the Southern Most Point for a Touristy attraction. We walked to dinner every night and loved being able to leave our car in a gated spot away from the chaos. We drove to Bahia Honda State Park one day to enjoy the beach but we loved Ft Zachary Taylor Beach the best- great for snorkeling and within our neighborhood. The condo was set up well and met all of our needs. We would eat and play cards on the back deck, we were able to wash our clothes as often as we wanted, and the kitchen was well equipped for anything you may want to cook (except not a ton of food storage space). Every restaurant we tried was great- Caroline's Cafe, Angellinos Pizza, Margarittaville, Red Fish Blue Fish, Charlie Macs and we enjoyed live music at Hog's Breath one night. The grounds and community were gorgeous - we will definitely return!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. We do appreciate it .... the location is perfect to wander and see Key West...... I agree that the cupboards are full of everything that you will need....and there isn't a lot of space left for the food. Past guests have told us that they tend to eat out a lot and don't keep a lot of groceries on hand. They like being able to have some breakfast foods, and some BBQ goodies... but really they don't tend to eat in a lot especially if they are only there for a week ..... because of the hot the warm climate I tend to store most of my food in the refrigerator excepting thing like chips, crackers and cereal..... we don't tend to keep a lot of food on hand even when we are there for an extended period of time.... I shop frequently.... besides I don't want to take up all the space in the fridge with food...... I like to leave some room for water and other cold beverages. Hope to see you soon and once again thank you for taking time to submit this review. Sherri

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo, in a great location, close enough to Duval, but quiet. Less than a mile to South Beach, we rode the bikes there. Hardly ever used our car, except to go grocery shopping. Nice features in the condo: shower with rainhead and wand, nice tile, LED lighting with dimmers which were very cool, full size washer and dryer, kitchen has everything you need. Having the 2 bikes there was great, we used them a lot. A new sofa was being delivered the day we left. The only little negative thing to say would be the king size bed was kinda squeaky, especially on the one side, but we still slept pretty good. We stayed here for 5 weeks and hated to leave.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I wish you had told me about the squeaky bed. When I read the review I joked with my husband that no one likes a braggart but when we went over to investigate I was so embarrassed by the squeaking. After some careful investigation it was determined that the box springs were the culprits not the actual mattresses. I have ordered new box springs and they are being delivered today. I only wish that you had mentioned this to us during your stay and I would have had the situation rectified. After all you need to get a great nights sleep when you are in Key West so that you are well rested and ready to enjoy the next day and evening taking in all that our wonderful little Island Paradise has to offer. Hurray back soon. Sherri and Michael

"Attitude Key West" helped get a Key West attitude

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week we had...my finace and I always travel to Key West once a year and have stayed in various spots around the Shipyard before. We loved this little condo...it has been updated, has a modern feel to it but keeps that "Key West attitude" we love about the island. Had everything we could have needed, was clean and wonderfully maintained and is within a walk of virtually any of the Old Town spots. The place was wonderful, dealing with Mrs. Sharon was wonderful...would go back in an instant.

Key West is an amazing and diverse community. It has something to offer for everyone a day at the beach, lunch at the bar, a stroll along the Atlantic Ocean or Sunset on the Gulf side, and the night life on Duval. You can rest assured that you will never be bored in Key West. Truly a tropical paradise.
