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

Cozy with great location.

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth stay here. We have enjoyed it greatly on each trip. It is perfect for our needs and we feel ultra comfortable here. It's clean and compact. The nikes are a huge plus. I wish both Bikes had a Basket though. We will be back. Guaranteed. Thanks

This place is a gem!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo overall for 2 people. The location was perfect, firm mattress, thick bath and beach towels, availability of bikes, and most importantly it was clean, clean, clean!! We saw no bugs, ants, or unwanted insects! We would totally recommend this condo to others.

Pam was very accommodating and we appreciated her attention to detail.

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.
