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.......

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

My husband and I loved the condo, amenities and location. It's a bit of a walk to the main attractions of Key West but that is easily fixed with a bike ride or taxi. We used the building's heated pool and spent time on Smather's beach (which was right next door). The next time we stay in Key West, we will stay here.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. So glad that you enjoyed! You are right it is about a 15 minute bike ride to the far end of Duval St. but that gives you an opportunity to get out on the bikes and take some of the side streets, allowing you to see the local color of Key West..... far more that you would normally experience if you are traveling by cab......The pool over looking the ocean and the hot tub in the lush court yard certainly make this a wonderful place to spend time. Hurry back.....

The condo was super cute – all the amenities that you would ever need

  • 5 of 5

From the very beginning, Sheri was very accommodating, answered all my questions, easy to talk with and contact. The condo complex was easy to get to from the airport – we actually walked to the airport on the way home. The condo was super cute, loved the decorating. It was supplied with all the amenities you would need in the kitchen, in the condo, around the pool, and even bikes for riding around town. Absolutely a beautiful garden area on the way to the Huge pool area - never had to fight for a chair. Not only a beautiful pool but the view of the ocean was amazing from the pool too! In the mornings, we took walks, went for bike rides, runs, etc along the beach on a great path. Spent most of the days at the pool area, downtown or on an excursion. Dinners were delicious at all the restaurants we tried.. Key lime pie was a must at every one to find the BEST!! Ended the night on the patio w/ a night cap! And to top it all off the weather was Absolutely perfect! Loved the Keys & the time we spent at this condo - we will be back for sure!

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
