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!

Sherri and Michael

Remember it is ALL in the Attitude Key West!

Attitude Key West is great! Fully stocked kitchen, quality linens, bicycles, beach chairs, Weber grill, complete with suggestions for things to do and places to dine. I would definitely consider visiting this property again. 😊👍

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed... actually the grill has a Weber cover on it, I think that is manufactured by Weber(I have seen a similar grill made by them) this one is a Kenmore.... still a good quality grill that is just over a year old.....We are very lucky to be able to have this grill on our back deck. New restrictions in the fire code mean that a number of owners had to remove their grills.The unique configuration of the back deck enables us to be in compliance with the code. We feel very fortunate to be able to enjoy the grill on the back deck when we are there. We love to spend time on the back deck with the smell of BBQ and a great glass of wine. Hurry back!

Everything was just right. Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just right for our one week stay at Sherri's place in Truman Annex. We are a family of four, so the condo was cozy, but there was ample space. The beds are very sufficient for four to sleep comfortably. The back deck is spacious and well maintained (unlike some other decks we have used in Truman annex). The interior is very well appointed. There is a very well equipped kitchen and bathroom- really the nicest amenities we have had in Truman Annex (this is the third place we have stayed at). Sherri was very responsive to all my questions and needs. Can't think of anything negative - highly recommended!

Awesome Location and Unit

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time staying at Attitude Key West. The complex is in a great location, quiet but a short walk or bike ride to the action in Duval or to the Fort Zachary beach park. The condo is nicely decorated with everything you may need. Sherri is right on about the high quality towels and sheets! The bikes were a bonus as a ride through the neighborhoods is one of my favorite things to do in KW. The beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the patio with a glass of wine after a day in the sun. I would highly recommend a stay at Attitude Key West and I will definitely be back! Thank you Sherri!

Our time in Key West

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great time in the Shipyard Condominiums. Sherri and her husband were wonderful hosts. The condo was small, but extremely well laid out. It seemed like a much bigger place. All the furniture, art, appliances, flooring, bathroom, and kitchen were all first rate. An added bonus was the very nice (and new) bicycles that were left for our use. We came to KW by air, and planned to use bicycles all the time, and we never had any problems without a car.

The condo was centrally located for all the things we wanted to see and do (Mallory Square, theatre, shopping, restaurants, the Taylor State Park, and Fausto's). We even got a really good tip on happy hour at Martins. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved staying in this condo and are about to request another stay!!! It is everything described and more. This place has location, location, location. It was extremely clean and modern. The colors and decor match the Key West Vibe. Its our new Favorite Vacation spot. From arrival to departure Sherri was so helpful and great. Beds were comfortable also. We loved grilling out on the patio and just enjoying Island life. This is the place to stay in Key West hands down. Thank you Sherri for letting us stay in your little piece of Heaven.

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.
