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!

Excellent! The single family house was one of the best in the condo complex!

  • 5 of 5

This is a house in a gated secured complex! Perfect for a max of 6 adults. Well maintained, great amenities, great pool, easy rules. Suncreen and beach towels included. Jean was very easy to get in contact with and was very helpful with finding extra vehicle parking. Over all, would come back and would recommend to others.

Great Location. Great Property.

  • 5 of 5

As others have stated, the Sea Breeze Cottage is well located and equipped. There were 3 couples staying at the rental each had our own room. One of the upstairs bedrooms is a loft while the other has a door and provides more privacy. There is a shared bathroom. The other bedroom is located downstairs with a half bath located steps away. There was room enough for all without feeling crowded. The house is close enough to town but not too close to hear all the late night noise. The owner was very responsive to our needs and made our booking and stay flawless. All questions were answered quickly and thoroughly by email.

I would definately reccommend this lace to couples or families.

Could not have been any better!

  • 5 of 5

Having been a rental property owner for years I know a nice unit when I see one and this is it! This one is super clean, well maintained, nicely and tastefully appointed, has a well equipped kitchen and it's in a great location, not to mention a highly responsive owner in Jean. She quickly and accurately answered the few questions we had and is a real pleasure to deal with.

We had 3 couples in our group and were quite comfortable the entire week. The community is quiet and relaxing with a very nice pool a few short steps away, and yet it is close the many hidden gems of Key West. Dine at Onlywood on Duval Street for wood grilled pizza and delicious pasta/seafood combinations, or perhaps DJ's Clam Shack for wonderful steamed clams and Lobster rolls, or a must go to place in Blue Heaven for strong Bloody Mary's with your brunch- all of these are very short walks away. Also you are just a mile or so away from the Southern Most Point which has the wonderful South Beach Grill and Cafe- eat at the bar to avoid the long wait and choose the scrumptious grilled fish sandwiches and enjoy the fun bartenders.

We rented bikes for the week from Eaton Bikes and they were in the back yard awaiting our arrival; bikes are the fastest and cheapest way around the island. The unit is also very close (3 minute bike ride) to Fort Zachary State Park which offers very beautiful beaches and a nice quaint cafe for adult drinks/snacks plus it has many picnic tables and charcoal grills if you want to cook you own food, all of the low entry fee of about $2 for walkers/bikers.

I would highly recommend this unit to anyone wanting a wonderful Key West vacation.

A most excellent place and a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay. The 6 of us (3 couples) had everything we could want. We had easy access to Fort Zach, Duval St. and Mallory square. We rented bikes and had a great time getting everywhere we needed quickly. The place was immaculate and all the tools for a great vacation were included. Everyone in the neighborhood was very friendly. The place was perfectly peaceful. The owners were fantastic and responded very promptly to our questions/needs. We would definitely recommend staying here anytime and hope to come back.

Perfect place for group!

  • 5 of 5

5 of us spent a week in this fabulous condo. It was spotless, big enough that we weren't on top of each other and small enough that we were cozy.

It came well stocked with everything we needed to whip up quick meals. The fridge was big enough to hold all our adult beverages too!

I've stayed at plenty of Trumax Annex condos and this one, by far, is my favorite!!

Quiet Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Three couples had a great week at the cottage. It is a quiet oasis just a short walk from Duval Street and the Zachary State Park. We enjoyed sitting on the back lower deck for our breakfast each day. The spacious top deck was perfect for watching the cruise ships arrive and depart each day. We will be back!
