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 me and my business on Facebook as Key West Breeze Vacations.

Pam MacKenzie purchased this studio in 2004

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

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.

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.

Thank

Mike and Debbie

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!

Notes:
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. The nearest beach is South Beach, 6 blocks form the condo. Fort Zachary Taylor State Park has the local's favorite beach and is about 1 mile from the condo. For a beautiful pool try Dante's of Key West, a fabulous restaurant located at 955 Caroline Street in the Conch Harbor Marina on the corner Grinnell Street. They offer a wide selection of food, from their fresh seafood, caught by local fishermen to sandwiches that anyone will enjoy. The pool is for patrons of Dante's to enjoy; go in and have some food and drinks, while you are there take a swim in the afternoon to beat the Florida heat.
