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.

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

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.

The Simonton Studio is in a great location in walking distance to Duval Street.

The studio is a good alternative to a hotel stay for a couple. It is clean and comes with a well equipped kitchen. Pam is a wonderful host--we also stayed at one of her condos. She responds to any inquiry and is a very nice person to meet.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfectly located and exactly what we needed! Walking distance to everything and if you wanted to get there quicker the bikes were very handy

We didn't move our car the entire five days we' were here! The studio was very clean and maintained

Perfect spot for a quick getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Simonton Studio during my recent stay (Jan 14-18 2017) in Key West for the KW Half Marathon. I've vacationed to Key West many times and normally stay at a weekly condo rental in the annex so I was a little nervous about staying somewhere new. I was very pleased with the accommodations and location. The location was the best part because it was right in the middle of everything and across from my favorite breakfast spot (Croissants de France). The studio was very clean and equipped with everything I could possibly need to make my trip comfortable. Pam was a joy to book with. I sent an email the night before my trip to ask about a hairdryer and she emailed back within minuets. I highly recommend this place!
