About Jean Kemp
About the Owners: When not in Key West my husband and I live and own a business in Kansas. We have 2 sons and 5 grandchildren. We have owned in Truman Annex Shipyard since 2001. After visiting a few times we fell in love with Key West and knew we had to own. It is a pleasure to share our condo with others so they can also fall in love with this beautiful historic city. After all these years of visiting we still enjoy and love this historical city.
Jean Kemp purchased this Condo in 2011

This is our 8th time in Island Escape and we have already booked for 2019. We couldn't ask for more.
We have been coming here since 2011 for long term visits. We found Island Escape after many years in Key West and now would not consider any other place to stay. We live on the beautiful deck almost the entire day and only leave for activities or sleep. We look forward to seeing the changes that Jean and Lowell make every year when we come down.
We feel comfortable in our "Home Away from Home" and feel sad when we have to go home. See you in 2019!
The property was perfect. The wonderful porch with the comfy furniture was peaceful and relaxing. The shower was very good, and we had everything we needed at the condo. The location was perfect and just an easy walk to everything. We spent the week without a car or bikes, and we were able to get everywhere within minutes: State Park, Mallory Square, Duval, Shows, massages and more.
Very clean, very nice and perfect location!
We absolutely loved staying at island Escape condo! It was a great location, close enough to the action, but far enough way to be quiet and relaxing when needed!
Great location for biking to the best beach in KW; near some of the best eateries too! La creperie, Virgilio's, and Jack Flats wasabi tuna 👍� best TVs for sports too! The Rum Bar is a must. The happy hours and 1/2 apps are endless ALL OVER the island! We cooked and ate our catch from our Gulfstream IV trip. The Tropic cinema is a must, just a block or so away.
Coffee every am on the shady porch with our yummies we bring home from The French Bakery on Duval.
The condo is very well equipped to support our KW temporary home 🌺�
This condo is a cozy little get away in a great location. Would definitely stay here again, (hopefully soon!)
Great location to everything Key West. Loved It!
First time to Key West for my wife and I. the condo was very clean, we'll stocked and cozy. The back porch was a great place to sit and enjoy the weather. The pool was awesome. An amazing location to basically everything you want to see in Key West. You're two blocks, an easy walk to Duval Street, but far enough off to avoid noise. It's peaceful and can say wothout reservation, my best vacation in years. Already planning my next trip and will stay at Island Escape.
The Truman Annex is located 2 blocks from Duval or Fort Zachory Beach. The famous Blue Heaven restaurant is 1 block as is the famous Green Parrot Bar. Hemingway house and Truman little White House is also very close. New Waterfront park/water park behind the complex.
