About Sherri MacKenzie-Ritchie

We are Canadians and We LOVE to travel and have visited many different places over the past 8 years since we met..... Cuba, New Zealand, Korea, Spain, Germany, Holland, Ecuador, 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 will be more suitable for our extended stays in the future. 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 will 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 highlightsand 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.......

An amazing place to spend the week

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Key West in this condo. It was clean, comfortable, homey and very nice. The owner is also very responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. We found everything we needed in the home, and we enjoyed having the extra space. The views of the ocean from the pool area are beautiful, and because we were there for the 4th of July, we had the perfect view of the fireworks at Higgs Beach without having to go anywhere and fight crowds and traffic. The pool was very nice, but it was a little too hot to use the hot tub this time. Although It does take a little while to get downtown (10-15 minutes), it's also a plus because it's more relaxing when you just want to chill out after spending the day on the water or a night on Duval. The appliances are top of the line, and the bathroom was a highlight. We loved the rain shower, and I plan to implement that storage system in my home ASAP and buy some of those Turkish towels, too! We appreciate how great of a property this was, and we had fun at the pool, on the bikes and relaxing on the patio. I hope we get to come back there again. It was a wonderful stay.

Loved This Place

  • 5 of 5

It was so nice to stay in a rental property that was personally owned and maintained by the actual owner. It made the stay so special because the quality of everything was exceptional. Having the attention to detail actual people versus, the regular coldness of corporate environments like a hotel made our stay so nice. From the quality of dishes/silverware, appliances, bedding and furniture, everything was wonderful.

Thank you so much Sherri

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. We do love this little piece of paradise that we are so fortunate to be able to call home. It is important to us that everyone feels welcomed and comfortable upon their arrival, after all you are our guests. We are particular about our linens and frankly I like my dishes/glasses/silverware to be in complete sets and for them to all match....... it doesn't matter if you are eating a toasted bagel for breakfast or dinning on a 5 star meal that you have prepared..... presentation is all part of the meal. Things just taste better when they are presented nicely. So glad that you enjoyed. Hurry back! Sherri and Michael

Great spot! Extremely clean.

  • 5 of 5

Owners have thought of everything! Anything we would think of doing or needing, open a door or drawer and it was there. This unit is close to the water, pool or beach and perfect biking distance from Duval St. action. The patio offers morning sun and afternoon shade which we found perfect with the Key West heat. The patio is street side of the complex, it is a busy street but not a big deal. We found it more private than the poolside would be.

All in all I would recommend this unit to anyone wanting a great Key West experience!

Thanks again Sherri

A great way to experience Key West

  • 5 of 5

I admit that upon arriving we were concerned we were “too far” from things to enjoy our vacation. But we quickly discovered the bicycles and just how convenient the island really is. If you are looking to just soak up some sun with an ocean view the pool is the perfect spot. Be sure to take time to enjoy the orchids on the walkway. Or if you prefer to experience sand between your toes Smather’s beach is a convenient walk with umbrellas and lounge chairs for rent. Anywhere we wanted to go in Key West – whether it was the marina for a snorkeling trip or Duval street for dinner and people watching – it was only a 15-minute bike ride. I probably haven’t been on a bike in 30 years but it was easy and fun. Even on a warm day, the balcony was a comfortable way to end the day at sunset with an ocean breeze. Mallory Square has the popular sunset experience but we also enjoyed the moon rise from the balcony. The condo is well equipped with updated fixtures and appliances. If you prefer a quiet stay with easy access to the popular spots I highly recommend Attitude Key West at the Beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. I agree with everything that you have said. The island is small and nothing is very far away. Our preferred mode of transportation when we are there is the bicycles..... because they are the "old school" beach cruisers they are easy to ride and even if you haven't ridden a bike in a long time in a very short period of time you are comfortable and enjoying the island like a local. We also enjoy spending the evening on the balcony discussing the days adventures and making plans for the next. Hurry back the orchids are waiting.

Excellent location with everything you could ever need/want while on vacation

  • 5 of 5

The rental was everything we hoped that it would be and more! The location was really nice with Smathers Beach just around the corner and the local bus stop just up the street. We had such a great time while at Key West. "Attitude" was nicely decorated with island flair - the owner's thought of everything to make your stay at their home so comfortable.

The suggestions for sightseeing, shopping, eating and beyond were very helpful. The bikes and snorkel equipment at our disposal was so over the top.

The description of the property/rental was spot on. We found the property very clean and well maintained with many new upgrades. Sherri was always helpful and responded quickly before, during and after our stay. We would highly recommend this rental to anyone.

We loved every moment on the island and at Attitude. We look forward to returning again and hope that we will be able to stay again with Sherri.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I believe in truth in advertising and we are very pleased that not only did we meet your expectations but actually exceeded them. We try to make sure that the condo is well equipped not only for our guests but for ourselves as well. The bikes were new in April but the snorkeling gear is old.... very old, however it still allows you to get out there and paddle around without a lot of fuss.........just like the tennis rackets that are in the closet.. they are old but still usable. Our hope is that everyone that visits sees Key West not just as a tourist but perhaps they get a peek of the local life style. Thank you for selecting Attitude Key West and hurry back! Sherri and Michael

The property was beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We were there for a week. We did not need for anything. Everything was as described on site. We used the bicycles several times while there to get to old town. The pool area was landscaped beautifully an two ocean beaches were within walking easy walking distances. We just had an awesome time there.

Owner's Response: So glad that you enjoyed your time with us. Although this location is not right down town it is certainly much closer to the public beaches and within an easy bike ride to the hustle and bustle of Duval Street and Malory Square. Hurry back! Sherri
