About Jean Kemp

When not in Key West my husband and I live and own a Powersports 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 and knew we had to own. It's a pleasure to share our condo with others so they can also fall in love with this beautiful historic island. After all these years of visiting we still look forward to and enjoy everything Key West has to offer.

Jean Kemp purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Jean Kemp chose Old Town

We love Truman Annex! Old Town Key West has everything. Cottage is private and relaxing with views. It's tropical foliage and gardens are pristine. The surroundings are relaxing and private. It's close to all the attractions and activities. The sunsets are breathtaking & celebrated.

What makes this cottage unique

Sea Breeze is unique in that it is the only stand alone cottage in the Shipyard! That means More Privacy. You have 2 decks that look over Truman Waterfront Park with waterfront views of the gulf & activities. You will have all the amenities, roominess, and a tranquil-secure place to stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It is my pleasure to write a review for the Sea Breeze Cottage. This was a long planned vacation event for my husband and I along with my daughter, her husband, my brother & his wife. The six of us stayed in the beautiful Sea Breeze Cottage from November 7, 2015 until November 16. The only negative thing I can say is that we had to come home! What a wonderful time we had. This cottage was everything it advertised to be - clean, well maintained and more than adequate - as it even came equipped with a mascot! That would be a little curly tailed lizard that made his home in a planter next to the deck. We appropriately named him "Curley". We quickly found that he liked little pieces of bread - but he especially loved oven warmed cinnamon rolls! We tossed a crumb or two and he would come jumping from the flower pot to the deck. Every morning we had a great home cooked breakfast together, served on the back deck, prepared in the well equipped kitchen. We especially enjoyed using the electric grill on the deck for our bacon and ham and later for pork chops! We found that breakfast on the deck was a perfect place to discuss our plans for the day. This cottage was perfect for our group - two full bathrooms and 3 bedrooms. It was unusually warm that week but the air conditioning was great. The living room had plenty of comfortable seating & a nice big flat screen TV (although we didn't watch it much - who has time for TV in Key West!). The washer and dryer really came in handy - we didn't have to bring so many clothes. We were surprised at how well equipped the whole cottage was - with all kinds of things to make our stay pleasant. There were beach towels, umbrellas, beach mats, plenty of blankets, pillows, towels, books and much more. Another thing we especially enjoyed is the fact that the cottage was close to Duval Street and all the "action". We wanted to be as close as possible to everything and this cottage sure was. However, it was a quiet place, never any outside noise. Who could ask for more...possibly more time there!! Thank you Jean and Lowell for sharing this gem with us. We all agreed that the cottage was awesome and we would be more than happy to vacation there again. To whoever stays there next... be kind to our Curly and drop him a crumb now and then!

Wonderful family cottage in beautiful Truman Complex

  • 5 of 5

Location, Location, Location. Located in a beautiful community that is quiet but still so close to Duval street and major attractions. Can walk to everything of interest including beach (Fort Zachary). Cottage is clean, comfortable, and well equipped. Even had cooler and beach chairs that we used at the beach. Had assigned parking spot for one vehicle. Large capacity washer and drier. I will definitely book it again!

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful. We really enjoyed having a back porch and a balcony. Couldn’t ask for a more perfect location, being walking distance to the Fort Zachary Taylor beach, Duval st, and awesome restaurants/bars like Green Parrot and Blue Heaven. Also, the new water park and playground right behind it was a hit for our young daughter. The owners were super nice and responded promptly to any questions. We loved staying here, highly recommend it and will likely be staying here again in the future.

Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

Location, Location, Location. Great property in Truman Annex. Stayed March 2018 for Spring Break. Perfect for family of 5-6. This is not a condo/duplex, but a small house/cottage. Great back porch with constant breeze. Cottage has all the standard amenities and is clean, well kept and decorated. Parking space is close to the cottage. The best part is that the cottage is within a 10-15 minute walk to majority of restaurants and tourist attractions. We walked everywhere and on a few occasions would Uber ($10-13 on Uber, pretty much will get you anywhere in Key West). Walks through Old Town to Duval Street took about 5-10 minutes. 10 minute walk to beach at Fort Zachary State Park. 10 minutes to Hemingway's House; 15 minutes to Southern Most Point and Mallory Square. Many rent bikes, but we just walked; very pleasant to walk through Old Town. So if you fly to Key West, really do not need to rent a car, just Uber when needed. My family drove down so had a vehicle. We only drove to Stock Island (Catamaran day trip and eat at Hogfish Grill) and Sugarloaf Key (for Skydiving).

When time for sleep, the house and Truman Annex complex is quiet. Neighbors (some permanent residents, others on vacation) were all friendly. Complex is very clean, beautiful landscaping, and private.

Do not bring coffee filters, there has to be at least 1000 left from former renters. But do go to Glazed Donuts (3 blocks away) and get their in store roasted coffee! Get the Mango Delight at Caroline's Cafe and the Rum Runner at Sloppy Joes! All a short walk from this cottage.

I will definitely return to this cottage for my next trip to Key West.

Excellent Location. Excellent House.

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 adults and 3 grown daughters) stayed a week in Jean's perfectly located and well appointed home. The location in Truman Annex is great - quiet , yet close to all of the action and Ft Zach beach and state park. The owner Jean is very responsive and the house has beach chairs and towels and is very well organized for a Key West stay.
