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 Key West

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

Perfect Location and place to stay

Studio was perfect! the bicycles made all the difference in the world and let us explore much more that we would have without them. The location is ideal, the accommodations perfect. Would go back again or recommend in a second!

Great!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location if you like to walk---right in the middle of everything! Studio was perfect for two people and had everything we needed. Parking was the only issue, but we just put our car in the parking garage while we were there--in and out as much as you want. We never got a chance to use the bikes, we enjoyed the walking too much! So glad we did not choose a motel, this was much better!

Great location and excellent owner!

  • 4 of 5

This property has a fantastic location. Everything is very clean and was perfect for us. Bikes were a bonus we used them and easily found our way around Key West. The owner was extremely helpful and helped us enjoy our stay. When we return, we will definitely be staying here.

So much better than a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

The studio was wonderful. It was clean and had everything we needed. We arrived earlier than our check-in time and Pam was kind enough to allow us to get into the room earlier. I absolutely loved the hen and her baby chicks in the courtyard. The location is great, we were able to walk everywhere within a few minutes and the Better than Sex dessert bar is right on the corner. It was the perfect place for my husband and I.

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.
