About the property

Condo, 1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4

We made it through Irma, there was lots of clean up on the balcony but we are happy to advise that the hurricane patio doors and transoms did their job. There has been damage to some of the foliage/trees but all in all things are in good shape. Thankfully because of the tropical climate things are quick to grow back.

This is the ONLY 1 Bedroom Penthouse located at 1800 Atlantic. It is considered to be very large by Key West Standards. Soaring Ceilings, 2 sets of Patio Doors opening on to the Balcony that provides a peek of the ocean,, King Size Bed and a Queen Size Murphy Bed, Wet Bar, Large well equipped Kitchen. Our bathroom was completely remodeled in Sept 2016 featuring a "Couples walk in shower" (the shower heads both operate at the same time or individually.) This Condo offers a laid back Cottage Decor with Central A/C, high quality Bedding and Linens. Stainless Steel appliances include, Fridge,(with ice maker) Stove, Microwave and Range Hood, Whisper Quiet Dish Washer, . The condo is also equipped with a Full size Washer and Dryer, 55' Smart TV with sound bar, 37' Flat screen, HD Cable, Secure wireless internet, local and long distance telephone for continental USA and Canada.... We include the use of 2 Adult bicycles (The Best Way to Explore our little Island) and unassigned off street parking for 1 vehicle! The use of the pool, whirl pool, sauna, private natural beach area, picnic/grilling area, tennis courts etc. The grounds are beautiful with lots of little surprises, here you will see that Orchids do grow on trees! This is our little piece of Paradise!

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 Midtown

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 Girls Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo and property. The pictures don't do its justice. We had 3 girls in the condo with plenty of room. Loved the pool on the beach with great ocean views.

Not long enough!

  • 5 of 5

I was only here for a very fast three days. The condo is adorable. I love the decor. The location is awesome. Enjoyed the pool and the beach. Condo was very well equipped. I woud love to return for a week! Three days went by too quickly! The owner was very pleasant and easy to work with. The building is very secure. The owner let me know that the TV in the bedrooom was not working, but I was able to reset the cable box and it worked great! This was my first visit to Key West. I will be back! Loved it !

Getting in was a bit difficult. The cable in bedroom didn't work.

  • 4 of 5

Instead of looking for a particular building which are not marked, you should advise all renters to just call security. The condo was very nice and clean, with plenty of room. However the noise from the street made sleeping a challenge, and the tv not working in the bedroom didn't help. Other then that it was a very nice place with great security. And the location was good to because it was far enough away from Duval street.

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear that you had challenges following the detailed instructions that I send out to everyone. The building entrances are clearly marked on the awnings over each entrance East and West as shown in the pictures on the website. It is unfortunate that the TV in the bedroom wasn't working and I apologize for that. I did offer to have someone come in or to let you speak with the service provider directly. I did confirm that the TV in the living room was working and that the internet access was operating as well. If the main reason you wanted the TV in the bedroom was for ambient sound there is a blue tooth mini stereo that could have been brought into the bedroom as well as a radio/alarm clock that could have been set to a station with a sleep timer. I can't disagree that there is a little street sound but it is almost impossible to escape from the sounds of civilization in Key West the island is only 1 1/2 miles wide and 4 1/2 miles long . We have Hurricane rated patio doors and transom windows as well as heavy curtains in the bedroom to help with block light and sound. We always appreciate comments that help us identify issues and make improvements. Thank you for your input.

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

Smathers Beach is just around the corner there you can partake in Wind Surfing, Snorkeling, Jet Skiing, Para Sailing, Sunning.... the list is endless! This area of Town offers up a number of excellent restaurants, a short Bike ride will get you to Duval St, Sunset and Buskers at Mallory Square, Fort Zachary Taylor State Park and Beach, Key West Eco-Discovery Center. If you want to spend the day at the Beach and the evening on Duval this is the perfect location!
