Key West Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, Sleeps 4

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 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. Key West is a bicycle friendly town and this is a great option for touring our small island of 2 miles by 4 miles.

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.

An absolutely wonderful stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at LaBrisa! Pam is an excellent host. The unit is exactly as described. It was extremely clean and very well equipped for every need. The kitchen had everything you could need, including ice packs for the cooler, also provided!!! And the bed was soooo comfy!

Pam is awesome to provide bikes and beach chairs! We used them both almost daily, and while the bikes may look old, they were absolutely perfect (and actually very stylish!) for tooling around the island! We really enjoyed cycling around everywhere.

There are plenty of markets close by - auto comes in handy for that.

Beaches on KW are not world class, but that is not the islands claim to fame, but Fort Zachary does have a good beach, with picnic tables and shade. It is a very easy bike ride, so you can just grab a towel and go. We did travel to Bahia Honda State Park twice which is a very, very nice beach!! It is only 40 mins away and a beautiful drive. Note: go to the Sandspur beach if you want solitude!! May have the place all to yourself and we found it to be the best beach in the park!

We did some excursions and would highly recommend kayaking the Mangroves with Lazy Dog outfitters. Trip was awesome! We also did the Commotion on the Ocean party cruise with Fury and Fury's Reggae and Snorkel trip - both also amazing!

Thanks Pam, for making KW stay so nice!!

Perfect beach location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect location for us. My friends and I enjoyed our stay. The condo was clean and well stocked. We spend most of our time on the beautiful smathers beach what is right across the street, walking distance. Pam is a great host anytime I had a question she responded right away. She also was very helpful with providing information. I definitely would recommend and I'll be coming back to rent again.

Great stay in Key West!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay here! Right across from Smather's beach, which we went to every day. We also rode bikes around the whole island, and easily took the shuttle from the stop right outside the condo to go to Duval Street for dinner. Very easy to get around and great location. The condo was the perfect size - great for our stay. We will definitely be back!

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.
