About Jean Kemp

When not in Key West my husband and I live and own a Powersports 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 and knew we had to own. It's a pleasure to share our condo with others so they can also fall in love with this beautiful historic island. After all these years of visiting we still look forward to and enjoy everything Key West has to offer.

Jean Kemp purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Jean Kemp chose Key West

We love Truman Annex! Old Town Key West has everything. Cottage is private and relaxing with views. It's tropical foliage and gardens are pristine. The surroundings are relaxing and private. It's close to all the attractions and activities. The sunsets are breathtaking & celebrated.

What makes this cottage unique

Sea Breeze is unique in that it is the only stand alone cottage in the Shipyard! That means More Privacy. You have 2 decks that look over Truman Waterfront Park with waterfront views of the gulf & activities. You will have all the amenities, roominess, and a tranquil-secure place to stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It is my pleasure to write a review for the Sea Breeze Cottage. This was a long planned vacation event for my husband and I along with my daughter, her husband, my brother & his wife. The six of us stayed in the beautiful Sea Breeze Cottage from November 7, 2015 until November 16. The only negative thing I can say is that we had to come home! What a wonderful time we had. This cottage was everything it advertised to be - clean, well maintained and more than adequate - as it even came equipped with a mascot! That would be a little curly tailed lizard that made his home in a planter next to the deck. We appropriately named him "Curley". We quickly found that he liked little pieces of bread - but he especially loved oven warmed cinnamon rolls! We tossed a crumb or two and he would come jumping from the flower pot to the deck. Every morning we had a great home cooked breakfast together, served on the back deck, prepared in the well equipped kitchen. We especially enjoyed using the electric grill on the deck for our bacon and ham and later for pork chops! We found that breakfast on the deck was a perfect place to discuss our plans for the day. This cottage was perfect for our group - two full bathrooms and 3 bedrooms. It was unusually warm that week but the air conditioning was great. The living room had plenty of comfortable seating & a nice big flat screen TV (although we didn't watch it much - who has time for TV in Key West!). The washer and dryer really came in handy - we didn't have to bring so many clothes. We were surprised at how well equipped the whole cottage was - with all kinds of things to make our stay pleasant. There were beach towels, umbrellas, beach mats, plenty of blankets, pillows, towels, books and much more. Another thing we especially enjoyed is the fact that the cottage was close to Duval Street and all the "action". We wanted to be as close as possible to everything and this cottage sure was. However, it was a quiet place, never any outside noise. Who could ask for more...possibly more time there!! Thank you Jean and Lowell for sharing this gem with us. We all agreed that the cottage was awesome and we would be more than happy to vacation there again. To whoever stays there next... be kind to our Curly and drop him a crumb now and then!

AWESOME

  • 5 of 5

Cute cottage with thoughtful amenities. Clean and comfortable with more than enough room for 6.

Location made KW easy and we were never at a loss for excitement.

From snorkeling, parasailing, renting mopeds and dancing on commotion on the ocean, to skydiving and deep fishing and celebrating on Duval Street, ALWAYS fun in KW.

Jean's cottage made a comfortable place to "come home to."

Hope to see you soon, hard to sat goodbye.

Thank you, Jean!

Location Location Location! Dream Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Location is key and this place is located perfectly. This property sits in the quiet, lush and tropical setting of the Truman Annex. The house is walking distance from Fort Zachary Taylor beach and a few blocks from Duval. We literally walked everywhere. The house itself was very clean and comfortable. It accommodated our family of 5, including 3 adult children, very well. The house is also very well equipped with everything you need to go to the beach or to prepare a meal. Prior to our trip, I contacted Jean with a couple of questions and she was exceptionally responsive and welcoming. Our entire family felt that this was one of the best vacations we have ever taken. If we ever go back to Key West we know exactly where we will be staying.

As for other things we enjoyed in Key West. The Fury Ultimate Jet Ski Tour, the Dry Tortugas Tour aboard the Yankee Freedom III, Blue Heaven for Eggs Benedict, Flying Monkey for frozen drinks, Fort Zachary Taylor Beach, Kermit's Key Lime Pie, WineO for wine tasting and smoked gouda bites, DJs Clam Shack for the overstuffed Lobster Roll and the mussels if they have them as the daily special (they are amazing), Sloppy Joe's for drinks and the smoked fish dip, El Meson De Pepe (Cuban), Hemingway's House is a great tour as well. The hop-on hop-off tour is also worth taking one day to get a good overview of the key (best on day 1 or 2).

I also highly recommend Key West Cab (305) 296-1346. We used them a few times for long trips and they were at our pick up spot on the minute every time, even when we booked a day ahead. Very very reliable.

The house is clean, well equipped and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with our stay. The house is situated two blocks from the beach on one side and two blocks from Duval on the other. Our teenagers complained it was hard to sleep in due to nearby construction, but it wasn't a huge issue. We definitely want to go back!

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. It was perfect. The bedroom with the king bed was very spacious. The house is very quiet and close to the nightlife. Jean was extremely responsive since the day I reserved the house. We did run out of toilet paper & I emailed her within 2 hours toilet paper appeared! I would definitely stay here again.
