About Pam MacKenzie

I have been living in Key West since 1992 having moved here from Nova Scotia, Canada. I have been doing vacation rentals since 2004 and my three properties keep me plenty busy. My properties are strictly rentals and they are not a second home. I operate as a business using my Florida Corporation called Scotia, Inc. and the rentals are my primary source of income. All three properties are licensed as transient rentals with both with the City of Key West and with the State of Florida. You can also find myself and my business on Facebook as “Key West Breeze Vacations”

Pam MacKenzie purchased this studio in 2004

Why Pam MacKenzie chose Old Town

This property was once a small hotel that was converted to condos, not something that would work in many small cities but here it is a gem. I love the location of this property and it offers what I would want in an accommodation; a big bed, a small kitchen and affordability. Many condos in Key West are restricted by their Association to renting for not less a week and this means owners must also stick to a rigid schedule of Saturday to Saturday to maximize bookings but this property does not have that restriction and offers the flexibility that guests love.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Pam. I trust you found everything in order after we left on the 4th. I want to thank you again for our cute little rental - it has a lot of classy & well thought out details that many other units just do not have. We had a blast in K.W. & will definitely contact you again should we get another chance to holiday there. Take care,

Wendy

Clean, comfortable, and a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Simonton Studio for a few days in mid July. The pictures are a perfect representation of the studio, clean, comfortable, and spacious. With the added benefit of the bus going right by, the studio is a fantastic place to stay. We walked pretty much everywhere, and when we couldn't walk or didn't feel like it, we took the bus. Parking was right out front and easy. I would recommend to anyone that wants to save money, have a convenient location, and a quiet, comfortable studio to book with Pam. 5 stars!

Perfect cozy and convenient getaway spot for two!

  • 5 of 5

Having visited Key West multiple times prior, this was our first time not staying in a hotel. We spent most days out on the water and nights in restaurants, but this spot offered the perfect home base to retreat to after a long day in the sun. It has all the amenities needed and was clean and comfortable. Pam is fantastic at communicating and there were never any questions she couldn’t handle promptly. The location is quiet but also close enough to walk to all major local attractions. The next time we come to Key West, we will be looking for Pam and availability at this same spot.

Nice place, great location

  • 5 of 5

This was a really nice little place to stay, in a really great location. Easy to get the keys, no issues at all. We parked on the street in one of the three spots Pam suggested out front, and walked everywhere. Definitely would suggest this place to others.

Key West is a town filled with Victorian architecture; it has a history filled with pirates, salvaging and the wealth that those trades once brought. It has been a refuge for writers, Presidents, parrotheads(Jimmy Buffet fans), artists and tourists looking to find a different Florida experience. Key West is funky, eccentric, expressive, tolerant and fun loving.
