About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6-8, Private Home with Private Pool & Parking

Traveling to Key West with a group deserves the ultimate vacation rental home: plenty of space to stretch out and enjoy time together, separate rooms and bathrooms to enjoy privacy, a private pool and of course, outdoor lounge area off street parking for scooters, and bicycles. “The Smiling Ibis” checks all of these boxes, and more. Located within walking distance to Duval Street and the Historic Seaport, this gorgeous and modern island home is the premiere accommodation for a group to relax and enjoy the experience of Key West’s most upscale vacation getaway. NEED MORE SPACE? Rent both “The Contented Crane” and “The Smiling Ibis” together as “The Ibis & The Crane” – two identical side-by-side homes that can sleep a total of 16 guests with two private pools.


Imagine your vacation home being just steps in either direction from all of the shops, restaurants, and sites of Duval Street and the Historic Seaport. Take a stroll or ride your bike down to the best of Key West, three blocks down Olivia St to hit local favorites like Croissants de France, Martins, and Nine-One-Five. Just a few blocks down Windsor Lane and you’ll be at BO’s Fish Wagon or Schooner Wharf.


This lively island home welcomes you with bright, tropical colors, tall ceilings, and luxurious modern furnishings. Floor to ceiling windows allow natural light to pour into the first floor all day. The living area boasts a gigantic 60-inch flat screen Smart HDTV, which you can watch from the comfort of the plush living room furniture or the kitchen/dining areas thanks to the open living plan of the first floor. The kitchen is fully equipped with state of the art appliances and all of the tools and utensils you will need to prepare a meal at home when taking a break from the decadent restaurant options of Key West. There is also a wet bar complete with the full bar set up for happy hour your way. The dining area has seating for 6, with 3 additional seats at the kitchen bar.


Through the sliding glass doors of the living area is one of the highlights of this home: the private pool area. Fully fenced for privacy and surrounded by lush tropical greenery, this will undoubtedly be a primary gathering place for your group. The comfortable chaise lounges can be pulled into the sun or the shade, and they sit right beside the heat-optional pool that is great for a dip on a hot day. A full outdoor dining set can comfortably sit 6. The backyard is complete with a large propane grill for an outdoor barbeque by the pool.


This home has a variety of options in terms of accommodations. There is a bedroom suite on the first floor with a Queen-sized bed and flat screen TV. This room has an en-suite bathroom with a glass and marble shower. The other two bedrooms are on the second floor. The master bedroom has a King-sized bed, a large flat-screen TV, plenty of dresser space, and a private balcony overlooking the pool. The master bathroom is en-suite with dual sinks, granite countertops, and a glass and marble shower. The third bedroom has two twin beds that can convert to a King upon request, a flat-screen TV, and a private balcony. The third bathroom is also en-suite and has a tub/shower. Additional sleeping area is available in the living room, as the sofa pulls out into a Queen bed. There is also a half bath off the living room.


Washer & Dryer, Central Heat and A/C, Ceiling Fans, Off-Street Parking, Flat Screen State-of-the Art HD TVs in all bedrooms and main living area, Fully Equipped Chef’s Kitchen with Gourmet Appliances, Full Wet Bar, Private Pool with available Pool Heat, Large BBQ Grill, Linens and Towels provided.

Wonderful Everytime

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that I rent a home with Last Key Rental. Keith has been our concierge both time. The experience is wonderful from beginning to end. Very seamless and streamlined. The listing is accurate in every way. Keith got us a stove top espresso maker upon request. He also provided some goodies for our two dogs, which they loved. It is always a pleasure. Some recommendations to improve the experience: 1) there was a distinctive odor to the home (at first I thought it was new wood, but it may have been smoking from a previous tenant? -- it really agitated my allergies -- I could be wrong), 2) the second thing is the BBQ -- they should really be cleaned better -- old grease collects on the bottom and burns rather than cooks or grills, 3) the lights outside not all worked, 4) I would recommend curtains or shutters for the living room area door (goes to pool), and the 5) cleanliness of the pool. This is not a reflection of Keith, at all, as his customer service was/is superb. I would recommend the property to a friend, relative or colleague, but again, I hope my recommendations are considered (as they were similar to the previous home from last year too).

The Smiling Ibis in Old Own.... IS KEY WEST !!

  • 5 of 5

First off, another shout out to Last Key Realty! This was our second visit to this same property, & just as last time, they took care of us so well, and we were so happy with our property host Keith, that we will never look anywhere else when returning to the island. This "Old Town" property has everything you could need: large main floor living/gathering area connected to a high-end kitchen with wide open floor-plan, well maintained rear deck & private pool, BBQ pit ready to fire up, fully stocked linen closet, and LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION. We are literally a minute walk to Duval Street.

This place has it all, is always spotlessly cleaned & so welcoming, and you seriously cannot beat the price. Surrounded by a wide variety of bars & restaurants, finding a fun atmosphere for the day is a no-brainer. For a party of 7 adults were not overcrowded at all, and truly, the only thing that could that could make this property any better is if Duval Street was actually inside the house. Ha! Thanks a million Keith!!

Nice modern House w/ enough space for 8 Elling distance to town quite area

  • 5 of 5

Great Service. Keith was very helpful guiding and getting us into the house when we arrived several hours after we were suppose to have been there. The concierge service also worked very well. The house is nicely kept w/ a great back porch where we ate all our meals. Very few mosquitoes. The kitchen was very well equipped and great for cooking and being w/ family at the same time. The house is w/I walking distance to Duval street but also far enough away that there is no noise other than from the occasional church bells and flights arriving in Key West. Would love to return another time. The only thing to be aware of is the slow WiFi. We had to use our own hotspots in order to get a descent connection.

Clean, new, well managed and nicely located.

  • 5 of 5

Really great stay! New and well managed townhomes. High cielings, new kitchen appliances, new construction! Nice, small heated pool. Convinient locations that's close to everything but also a tucked in a quieter area away from Duval. Management did a great job greeting us and helping throughout our stay! Overall very very happy!
