Studio, 0 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps

I am so happy you are reading this! Please feel free to call me directly to make payment on this condo. I take payment by credit card or check. Please read the "owner story" for more assurance.

The Simonton Studio is neat, sweet and complete. This pet friendly accommodation is the perfect location for exploring Key West. So, get out there and live it up in Key West and come home to a king size bed and everthing you need to fix your own cocktails and prepare some shrimp. Two bicycles are provided to explore the island.

Located in a 6 unit compound this tiny Association is located in the heart of Old Town on Simonton St. Walk to the Hemmingway House, the Butterfly Conservatory and stroll Duval street with it's shops, restaurants, galleries and museums. There is a Laundromat providing drop off service a block away.

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,

5/5 - Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly sized for two people, a well-equipped kitchen, indoor/outdoor seating, a locals' guide to the island, and bikes for transportation. The studio has every amenity needed for a basic stay in Key West. Perfectly situated for a quick walk to Duval or a bike ride to Higgs Beach, the location cannot be beat.

Cozy, comfortable and close

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place to stay in Key West. It was very reasonably priced, impeccably clean and the perfect size. It had a well equipped kitchen should you want to prepare meals and plenty of room for a studio apartment. The king size bed was very comfortable. It was close enough to Duval street and it's shopping/nightlife to easily walk to it but yet far enough away to not be in the middle of it. The bicycles that were provided made getting around the island to other places very easy. The trek to Zachary Taylor State Park for snorkeling was maybe 10 minutes on the bicycles and the snorkeling there was phenomenal. The Hemingway House is an easy 5 minute walk, only a couple of blocks away.

The Simonton Studio was a great place to stay. No frills but everything you need. Location was perfect and central to many things and we definitely enjoyed having use of the bikes. Would definitely stay again.

Key West, what a good time.

  • 4 of 5

This place was exactly as stated, Pam has a wonderful place here and it's in a fantastic location. We really enjoyed having the bicycles to ride. The place has everything you need and is plenty big for two people. We really enjoyed our stay.

4.5/5 if I could but it only allows whole # ratings.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great, minus the ants.

I know that it's just a part of life, but I personally couldn't get over them.

Perfect size- perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation in Key West! Pam provided everything needed to have a relaxing getaway. Close enough to all the action but on a nice quiet street. Clean and cozy! Such a great use of space! Walking distance to everything or use the bikes provided! Pam provided her suggestions for places to eat-activities (highly recommend the 26 miles waver runner tour by Barefoot Billy). We will definitely tell our friends and be back again!

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.
