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. All three of my properties are licensed as transient rentals with both with the City of Key West and with the State of Florida.
Pam MacKenzie purchased this Studio in 2004
Why Pam MacKenzie chose Old Town
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.
What makes this Studio unique
The location of this Sudio is the best benefit, leave the car behind and explore Old Town like a local.

Pros and cons
Neither the property interior nor the surroundings was what I'd consider beautiful, but everything was very clean, and the picture accurately portrays what is there. The location was very convenient only about a block or two from Duval St. and its restaurants, an easy walk from the Hemingway House and the Truman Little White House and about 1.3 miles from the beach at Fort Zachary Taylor. At the time we were there (mid March), we could usually find parking, though we left the car and walked when possible. A CVS half a block away offered basic groceries. We particularly enjoyed breakfast at Croissants de France a couple of blocks away on Duval.
Key West Stay
The place was very clean and had a great location. Would come back and rent again from Pam the owner. Very pleased!
We stayed at this property about 8 years ago. It’s stilled maintained well and so very close to everything in the historic area of Key West. The bikes are an added bonus and we used them the entire time. Great way to see the island!
Everything was just fine
This being our 11th trip to Key West we know our way around very well and have stayed in quite a few places. The Simonton Studio is legit. This may have been the value we have received so far.
Local attractions include sailing trips to the reef for snorkelling, fishing excursions, kayak excursions, Ghost Tours, Conch Train Tours and much much more. 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.
