About Sherri MacKenzie-Ritchie

We are Canadians and We LOVE to travel and have visited many different places over the past 12 years since we met..... Cuba, New Zealand, Korea, Spain, Germany, Holland, Ecuador, Scotland, Australia, many trips to the US, Florida, California, and Maine, and we have also visited a number of places in our own country, Vancouver, Toronto, Niagara Falls, Montreal, Quebec City, PEI, Newfoundland, etc. It is always our preference to stay in a privately owned condo or cottage when the opportunity is available. We enjoy being able to have our coffee in the morning, having a fridge on hand for beverages and snacks and most importantly a comfortable spot to relax at the end of each day!

Sherri MacKenzie-Ritchie purchased this condo in 2012

Why Sherri MacKenzie-Ritchie chose Key West

In 2010 we purchased our 1st property in Key West it is located in Old Town/Truman Annex..... it is Lovely however this is a larger property and is more suitable for our extended stays. Located on the Atlantic side of the island this is one of my favorite places to ride my bike with the wide bicycle paths that skirt the beach and the Atlantic Ocean. It is very relaxing and less congested than Old Town, the grounds are absolutely beautiful and we very much enjoy the pool, whirl pool and natural beach area... this is where we stay for extended periods.

What makes this condo unique

This property offers the feeling of a high end resort. there is no room service, front desk or bell men.....but..... the grounds are absolutely beautiful, well manicured and very well maintained. the Olympic sized pool, whirl pool, private natural beach area and sauna are all highlights and if you want to 'play' at the beach Smathers Beach just around the corner offers you many options. Because we include the use of 2 Adult Bikes, you are never far from anywhere or anything. We prefer to use the bikes as our main mode of transportation when in Key West it is the slower pace that allows you to truly relax and take in all of the little wonders.....

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are very proud of our new Bathroom...... we took everything back to the walls/studs..... tore up the floor, removed all of the bathroom fixtures, tiles, etc..... and replaced them with "weathered board" porcelain tiles on the floor and the shower walls, the shower floor is a river/beach stone with a complimentary contemporary glass and marble accent tile. The vanity and huge medicine cabinet are Ikea (which I absolutely LOVE) The plumbing fixtures are high quality European design...the toilet is environmentally friendly but still works very, very well.......... The final touches.... my Mermaid painting (a Valentines gift a few years back) and the Turkish Bath towels along side the traditional plush cotton bath towels......... fresh white face cloths..... all make for a very inviting shower experience. Hope that everyone enjoys...... I know that we are going to.......

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Key West. The condo was very clean and spacious. The kitchen was stocked and the bathroom was newly renovated!! The pool, garden & beach areas were very relaxing and beautiful. Sheri was so helpful with information and recommendations. We stopped at Baby's coffee and picked up some local coffee that we were able to enjoy on our entire vacation.

Great condo for our first Key West Visit!

  • 4 of 5

For us, traveling around the world, four stars is in line with living and experiencing a great week globally. We drove in the first week of June during a tropical storm and could not see much left or right of the truck..... June is rain season for Florida. When we woke up in the morning, we realized what a great location we were actually at. Right on the south side of the key looking over the ocean from the east side of the building, looking south at the ocean drinking coffee in the morning, pool and hot tub downstairs overlooking the ocean, right next to Smather's beach, a mile from Duval street and the tourists, and we rode the bikes everywhere (important when it comes to parking fees). We are a family of four with late teenage boys and it worked great. The condo has EVERYTHING you need and two bicycles (we brought two more). We are used to staying in houses, apartments and Condos around the world and found this to be 100% in line with everything we've stayed in with the US, France, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Charleston, Folley Beach etc....

Rest assured, you'll have a great experience, and Sherri is wonderful to work with. We were having such a great time we asked to stay longer and Sherri worked it out.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review..... it was a great compliment when you asked to extend your stay so glad that I was able to work that out for you....... I do love the view from the pool ......and I know that you can see the water from the balcony but I just want to make sure that people are aware that it is a peek.... and the balcony is not right on the water. It is our aim to meet if not exceed our guests expectations. Sherri

Owner's Response: Hope to see you soon. I am a little confused about the parking comment though. There is normally ample parking available and the parking lot isn't that big, it is located across from the main entrance. Wish you had expressed your dismay with me.

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Key West and a huge part of that was the wonderful condo that we stayed in during our visit. It's a lovely place, comfy, felt like home. It was clean and had everything we needed for the 3 of us. We all slept very well as both beds were nice. We all agreed that if any of us come back to Key West we hope to be able to stay here again. Thanks!!!

Cozy, lovely place.

  • 5 of 5

Sherri has a very lovely apartment and it was quite comfortable.  It feels like you're in your own home with a comfy balcony setting to relax while watching day turn into night. It's a plus to have the pool and pretty big for Key West. We didn't have the chance to use the bicycles since the beach was so close by. Smathers Beach is walking distance and it was pleasent to use the beach chairs provided. Try to get a spot underneath the coconut trees since the sun can be intense.  We had no problems finding parking around the main street and was very easy to find great places to eat. Sherri left detailed information on supermarkets nearby, which restaurants to eat and what to do while you're in Key West. I recommend staying here, especially if you like quietness.

Owner's Response: So glad that you enjoyed your time at our home. It is always nice to hear that people take advantage of the beach chairs. We too enjoy the balcony at the end of the day to unwind and catch our breath. Please hurry back!

Beautiful well mantained ptoperty, grounds and condo.

  • 5 of 5

Grounds are wonderfully landscaped.

Condo is well taken care of and stocked to perfection. Really nice furniture, stocked kitchen needs and fun items on display.

I don't think we could ask for any additions to improve, condo and property had all we needed plus more. Great time there, lots to do and explore. Thank you to Sherri & Michael for providing such a fantastic condo ... and helpful inforation about things to do and places to eat.

If you want to spend the day at the Beach and the evening on Duval this is the perfect location!
