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 lovely 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 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!

Nice property in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and had no issues. The cottage is located in a nice community. The locals that live in the community introduced themselves and welcomed us. Many restaurants, bars, shops, etc in walking distance. Check in and out was a breeze. This is a great cottage in a great location.

Perfect Keywest location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect sized house in perfect central Keywest location. House is wonderful and one of the few free standing houses in the complex. It is in a quiet location and is exactly as described. Nicely decorated and maintained. Kitchen is well equipped. We found the location to be excellent - watch the cruise ships come in from the upper deck; take a short walk to Ft. Zachary beach for yoga in the morning or beach in the afternoon; easy access to Duvall; and even shorter walk to Blue Heaven and the Green Parrot! Jean is a delight to work with and gives generously of her time to ensure you enjoy Keywest and their wonderful home. Definitely hoping to return!

Great house & location

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful place to stay. The house was everything that was listed and more and Jean was great. We been going to Key West every year for the last 13 years and would stay here again.We had breakfast every morning on the deck & found a new friend Curly he a small lizard that if you dropped a little piece of bread he would come out of the tree and eat it. Great place to unwind part of the day and party at night.

Great place to stay in Key West!

  • 5 of 5

Location was perfect, accessible by walking to all of Old Town Key West. Watched a sunset from the deck of the Coast Guard ship docked in the marina behind the property. House was clean, kitchen was well stocked with dishes, coffee maker, etc. Washer/dryer came in handy. Two decks were perfect - second story deck with a nice view, first story deck with shade and nice seating. Size was perfect for our group of five adults. Third bedroom was actually a loft, so no door/privacy, but that was not a problem for our group. Large family room to gather in. Seating area in the kitchen was small, but met our needs.
