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!

Absolutely Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautifully decorated inside. Very modern and everything looks new. It had everything we could possibly need for our week-long stay in Key West. There were beach towels, beach chairs, all manner of cookware and dinnerware, plus the two bikes made cruising around town a breeze. They aren't kidding about the quality of linens either. The sheets were 1000 thread count, so comfortable, and the towels were really nice. There's a washer and dryer for your convenience as well, and we took advantage so we wouldn't have so much laundry to do when we got home.

The condo is very conveniently located to just about anything you could want to see or do in Key West. Fort Zachary Taylor is a short walk or bike ride, and the beach there is probably the best one in town. Duval Street, where all the action is, is about a seven minute walk from the place. The place is gated and there is 24-hour security. The pool is nice and we spent quite a bit of time there.

Overall, I would highly recommend Attitude Key West as a great place to stay. I honestly don't think we could have chosen a better place. Sherri is wonderful and easy to get in touch with if you need anything or have any questions.

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Attitude Key West! It is walking distance to almost everything, but hidden away in a quiet neighborhood. We loved taking the 2 bikes for rides around the island - definitely the best way to get around Key West. The Green Parrot is a short walk away and is a great place to stop in for live music. Fort Zachary Taylor Beach is also a short walk/bike ride away and is an awesome place to enjoy the beach (with two great beach chairs provided with the unit) and to see beautiful sunsets. We also enjoyed walking down Duval street to Mallory Square to see all the action.The condo had everything we needed and provided a beautiful and comfortable place to relax during our vacation. Sherri was incredibly quick to respond to any questions and ensured that we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We were so sad to leave, but hope to come back and stay here in the future!

Wonderful Home Base for a Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean, comfortable, and perfectly located - exactly as advertised. Both the quiet history of Truman Annex and the excitement of Duval Street were easily walkable, and Fort Zachary Taylor Beach was a gem. Sherri was a pleasure to work with prior to our arrival and helped make this one of our best family vacations. Thank you!

A can of Off in thr closet as well as a bar of soap, dishwasher detergent, paper products and every cooking utensil you would ever need. This is our home away from home , and we will book with her every year! Thank you Sherri we had another wonderful trip thanks to 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!

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.
