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.......

Beautiful, relaxing key west wedding vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful, clean condo for a week. It was our first time in Key West and we were there to celebrate a family wedding. From the minute we found this condo online and reached out to Sherri she responded immediately and was so kind in all our communications throughout the time leading up to and including our vacation week. This condo has it all! It is very beautifully decorated, clean, and cozy. Sherri has thought of everything, all the essentials to make your vacation stay a perfect one. Not only does the condo come with many many amenities but the property itself is very peaceful, relaxing and very well landscaped. The condo is located close enough to the airport which we appreciated. The condo is on the quiet end of the island which is perfect because its far enough away from the action of duval but just a bike or walk away from many restaurants, bars, and beaches. Perhaps one of our favorite features was the use of two adult bikes that Sherri allows you to use during the stay. We loved this because a lot of our family stayed at the casa marina so we just grabbed our beach bag and jumped on the bikes and rode five minutes down the street to spend time with our family on the beach. It was amazing!! We loved the balcony off of the living room and bedroom. Every morning we spend at least a few minutes enjoying a cup of coffee or a breakfast sandwich. In fact, we loved the cuban coffee and breakfast sandwiches down the street at the corner sandwich shop..just a quick walk. Sherri also went above and beyond by sending us a list of her personal favorite restaurants, bars, happy hours, tours etc. to check out while we stayed. It was very useful!! The pool area was just perfect. It was very relaxing and had gorgeous views of the ocean from the deck and chairs. The hot tub we used a few times as well and both were very clean and well maintained. The king bed was incredibly comfortable and we loved crashing at the end of a long day in the sun. I truly can't say enough about this beautiful place!! We would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Key West!!! Thank you very much Sherri for going above and beyond for us and making our family wedding vacation one to remember by providing a clean, comfy, stress free place.

A very relaxing stay in Key West!

  • 5 of 5

What a great experience my wife and I had staying in this lovely condo in KW. Sherri was an exceptional host and responded to all communications very quickly. Her email with her recommendations for different activities/restaurants, etc. - not only in KW, but also on the drive down through the Keys - was really appreciated. We also took her recommendation to book a dinner reservation at Latitudes on Sunset Key! The condo is very tastefully done, well equipped and comfortable. The pool and hot tub were perfect and it is located right next to Smather's Beach, which we visited several of the days we were there. It's located a short distance from Duval Street and all the action there. That means you can experience as much of Duval Street as you want, but don't have to listen to the crowd when you're sleeping! The King sized bed is very comfortable, nice kitchen with everything you need and a nice bathroom with a glorious couples shower. We ended up not using the bikes because it was just too hot, but they are a great addition to this rental. All in all, a great experience and I highly recommend this condo!

This condo was clean, welcoming, comfortable, entirely accommodating to our needs!

  • 5 of 5

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!! To say we were impressed by this property and the owner is an understatement! My husband and I chose this condo in Key West on after our honeymoon to the Bahamas was abruptly disrupted by hurricane Matthew. The condo and location was a dream scenario! It was Incredibly inviting and accommodating, and way better than choosing a hotel! Located just outside of the Duval street area, this condo was about a ten minute bike ride to Duval, which was the perfect amount of distance for peace and quiet, but still close enough to get to all the fun Duval has to offer. The condo comes equipped with bikes as well- what more could you ask for?! The condo itself is updated with a beautiful open concept kitchen, an inviting and comfortable living room, an extremely comfortable king size bed, and a luxurious bathroom with a couples shower. The pool and spa area is also very nice and it's located right on the water with a gorgeous ocean view! The owner was very accessible via phone call/email/text (responded within minutes), and she ensured that we enjoyed our stay. We even had to extend our stay by a few days because of the hurricane, and she was very kind to us to make sure we were safe. If you're coming to Key West and are looking for a place that knocks your socks off- look no further- this is the place! My husband and I will ABSOLUTELY be returning!

Perfect, perfect, perfect!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the ideal place to stay in Key West, this is it. Everything necessary for a low stress stay, colorful decorations tastefully done, a great view from the balcony, a beautiful pool with an outstanding view, a lush and beautiful walk to the pool, easy parking and the list goes on. Just bring your clothes, toiletries and food. You are "6 minutes" from everything. The owner is great with communication.

A Great Stay at Attitude Key West

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at Attitude Key West and absolutely loved it. The condo itself was everything we'd hoped for. It was spotless and had all the extras that make vacations a pleasure, instead of a chore. I spoke with Sherri on the phone a few days before we left and she was a wealth of information. She was kind enough to e-mail me her personnel list of favorite restaurants and watering holes (and her husband pitched in with the place to go for my favorite, raw oysters). The grounds themselves are lovely. The short walk from the condo to the pool is through beautiful gardens. The pool,hot tub, and sauna areas were clean and well maintained. Great view of the ocean, a few steps away. The bikes are the ticket. I've been to Key West several times before, and I refuse to use a car for primary transportation around the island. You can be anywhere in Key West in a matter of minutes with the bikes, and the baskets and lights allow shopping and later hours possible. I would stay there again and recommend this place to a friend in a heartbeat. Thanks again Sherri for a wonderful time. Michael and Debra Cheval

we wanted quiet independence with home comforts but close to the action - we got it!

  • 4 of 5

Holiday home from home. All we needed, comfortable, flexible & easy to settle into our own routine.

Not being on top of Duval St works - you get respite from KW crazy, relax, tennis, pool. We shopped locally & cooked pasta / chilli 'at home' some days. Eating out is great but here you get best of both.

We loved crazy Duval, especially enjoyed the quiet pool & tennis. Bikes are the way to travel. If you're in KW for a longer period & don't mind not being in party central this is for you. But the party's only 1.5m away at any time - we travelled 5000 miles to go & wouldn't hesitate to recommend or go back .. ☀️😃

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. So glad that you enjoyed. I can't disagree with anything that you've said.... the location is certainly close enough to the action on Duval, but removed enough that it can offer the oasis of the pool and gardens removed from the chaos. Hurry back..... Sherri
