The Jungle Breeze condo at LaBrisa Condominiums is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment with a king size bed in the bedroom and a queen size sleeper sofa in the living area. It accommodates 2-4 people. This is not a hotel; it is a privately owned condo facing the ocean with a view of swaying palms and turquoise waters. The Jungle Breeze condo is the perfect getaway for a romantic couple or a small family. The Jungle Breeze condo features a fabulous view of the ocean and the beach.

Activities and Attractions : At Smathers beach you will find available such activities as windsurfing, sail boarding, snorkeling and kayak or Jet Ski tours. Old Town, Key West and Duval St are about 1mile away and there you will find dozens of restaurants, famous bars, art galleries, museums, live theater, boutique shopping and tours available on both land and sea.

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 condo in 2003

Why Pam MacKenzie chose Lower Florida Keys

Your Condo by the Beach, The Jungle Breeze has a long name because of it's history of being known as the Jungle Breeze Condo since 2004 and I added the "Beach" reference when I started advertising with HomeAway. The water view from this condo is superb and a rarity in Key West Vacation Rentals. I am thrilled to be able to offer such a unique vacation rental. I lived at the LaBrisa Condominiums property many years ago and have served on the Board of Directors. It is an exceptionally well maintained property with onsite management. The LaBrisa property is gated and offers excellent security. The public beach across the street is a constant source of activity and people watching pleasure.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Key West and we feel we were very fortunate to have found such a nice home-away-from-home!! This condominium has been the perfect place to relax and enjoy the incredible view!

We have enjoyed all the usual tourist things and learning the history of the area. However, the very best part of the week was our trip to to Dry Tortugas National Park. That is truly an awesome place, and we would recommend it to anyone!

Thanks for sharing your place.

Home away from home!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was just the right size for my husband and I. The view was awesome and the location was great, the security was excellent. The pool and hot tub are nice and only steps from the condo. The lush landscaping made the place seem very tropical. Inside the condo there was everything you needed and everything was clean and orderly. By no means is the condo sparkly and new but more then decent for a home base.

Pro's. Location, view, pool & hot tub, clean, furnished very nicely, stocked with everything you would need. Pam returned emails quickly.

Con's. Heavy patio doors, balcony railings block view when sitting down and the chips in the linoleum floors drove me crazy!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the feedback. This condo does offer a fabulous view of the ocean, which is very hard to find in Key West, but as this is a condo I have no control over the railing height and I suspect it is a code compliance issue. I beleive you meant the chips in the cermaic tile and I agree they are off-putting and one day I will re-tile the entire condo but it is such a noisy job to remove the tile (jack-hammer)that I have been procrastinating but one day in the near future this condo will recieve a major renovation, including the doors.

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our first Key West vacation. We enjoyed our mornings on the balcony eating breakfast and evening sunsets downtown either on the square and one night on a sunset catamaran cruise. I was really glad we stayed here rather than downtown. I liked being able to sit on the beach during the day and then get ready for an evening out downtown. We would either take a taxi or drive and pay for parking (this cost was the only downfall). We also enjoyed the pool and hot tub late at night when we would come in. Thanks for sharing your condo with us. It really made our stay in Key West wonderful.

La Brisa

  • 5 of 5

Our overall stay was great. The place was clean, management was great and it has ocean view. The only thing I would change is the transportation. It is very expensive taking cabs or renting a car. If possible rent scooters or take the free bikes they provide.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great rating! This property is about a mile and half from Old Town but there are options for getting around town. We have a public transit system which stops right outside this property and if you have a Smart phone you can bookmark their site and it will tell you when the next bus arrives. It's about 50cents a ride. The bikes are the most common form of transportation in Key West and much easier to park than a car. Guests are welcome to use the bikes in my storage unit. Pam

My husband and I arrived at The Jungle Breeze Condo for our 10 year anniversary vacation and fell in love with the condo and the island. We rode bikes, walked, did Duval St., shopped, did a sunset cruise, a dolphin cruise, and the six hour adventure that included snorkeling, jet skiing, and parasailing. All were amazing! We also relaxed on the patio every morning with our coffee and enjoyed the pool and the grill. I didn't think there was anything more beautiful than a Lake Michigan sunset, but a Key West sunset is just as beautiful and there was so much entertainment while watching it. We can't wait to come back as one week was just not enough. Best vacation of our lives!
