About Jean Kemp

About the Owners: When not in Key West my husband and I live and own a business in Kansas. We have 2 sons and 5 grandchildren. We have owned in Truman Annex Shipyard since 2001. After visiting a few times we fell in love with Key West and knew we had to own. It is a pleasure to share our condo with others so they can also fall in love with this beautiful historic city. After all these years of visiting we still enjoy and find something new to do.

Jean Kemp purchased this condo in 2011

Why Jean Kemp chose Key West

The Truman Annex is the perfect location, you are close to everything, it's quiet. You don't need a car, you can walk or bike everywhere on this 2x4 mile island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We noticed some new things you have added to the condo since we were here in November – looks great!! Thank you so much, Jean, for allowing us to share your beautiful piece of paradise again. We can’t tell you how much we appreciate it.

Had another wonderful Key West vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I come to Key West every year and always stay in the Truman Annex. We have always been pleased and this year was no exception. Jean and Lowell's condo is nicely decorated and just the right size for two people. It is very conveniently located too. Getting to meet both Jean and Lowell put the perfect cap on another perfect week in Key West.

Great location in the gated Truman annex. Comfortable, nice porch area to sit outside. Quiet neighborhood, relaxing environment. Loved Key West albeit a bit hot for the first of June. Highly recommend staying with Jean. All the comforts of home!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking to be right in the middle of all the action of Key West, the Island Escape Condo is the place to be! Perfect for a couple to hideout for a week, the location of this property is walking distance to Duval St. (Main strip of Key West) and not much farther for anything else. Shopping, dining, activities, are all comfortably close. My only complaint with this condo is that we should have stayed longer! Definitely will be back.

Clean, comfy condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Island Escape. He wants to come again next year. It took us a day or two to find the pool which was a wonderful perk on humid days. The place was well kept, with ample space. Quiet. Loved the balcony. My husband loved the fact we had access to a washer and dryer. We were close to a small grocery/deli, 3 blocks from Duval. It was overall a lovely vacation. We will come again, might have to bring our grown boys next time, so will need a bigger place. Thanks Jean.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

This property is located in a quiet neighbourhood in Truman Annex within easy walking distance of Duval Street (Key West's main street). The apartment is very clean, well laid out, and has a fabulous, large, private deck. The owner is friendly, and responds quickly to questions and issues. We loved it, and look forward to staying here again! An enjoyable, trouble-free property!

Relaxing in Key West

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just finished spending a week at this property, the second straight year we have stayed at this property.....we love it. It is perfect for a couple: clean and in an excellent location close to the prime attractions of Key West. We also made daily use of the pool which is located near the condo. The only suggested room for improvement would be to upgrade the mattress....getting saggy. Overall, a great place and we hope to return next year.
