Greatest place ever!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at Papa's Casita. We loved the pool and patio area. When we weren't out enjoying all that Key West has to offer, we were enjoying the pool and patio. The house was perfect for what we wanted and needed. It was really nice to have the well set up kitchen, and also the washer and dryer. The beds were very comfortable. Dennis from Last Key Realty was very helpful. The house is close to everything. You couldn't ask for a better location. We would definitely rent this house again.

Beautiful Middle of Everything

  • 5 of 5

Lovely to look at, nicely restored and well maintained. Hemingway House with its jungle gardens is a great lookout from the house front porches. An international feel during the day with visitors from all over the world. Always something to watch. Nice gardens. Close to beautiful Ft. Zachary beach, the gallery end of Duval, wonderful neighborhood restaurants. Have to say that Last Key Realty does the best job in town, have been coming for years, tried different companies and VRBO, once we found Last Key that was it, they make a big difference in the quality of the house and your experience. .

Fits All your needs!

  • 5 of 5

It has taking me a while to get around to writing this review.

I just want to start off by saying LOCATION, LOCATION , LOCATION! We got married last year at the Hemingway house and originally picked Papa Casita so we could be next door. This house exceeded our expectations. We stayed the whole month and had numbers friends and family join us. It truly fits 3 adult couple very well. We all had our own space to our selfs.

Dennis was completely accommodating! ANYTHING we need he was more than happy to help. He gave us the history of the house, and the renovation process. He also made sure we were at home there. He was very helpful, purchasing my husband a box fan, to helping us find a gym that met our needs for the month. He also introduced us to the surrounding neighbors, which made us feel very welcome, as well as comfortable.

We wil be renting this property again!

Great House to stay with our family

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Papa Casita. The house was immaculate when we arrived. Every thing is top of the line and very comfortable living accommodations. The back deck was probably our favorite part of the house, we couldn't get our daughters out of the pool and the covered dinning area was perfect for the grandparents to watch the kids play. Location of the house was amazing, on the quieter end of Duval but still centrally located. We love Key West and will try to rent this property or something from Dennis(our contact from Last Key Reality) in the future if possible. Everything about the house and Dennis made us feel at home during our entire visit

Awesome Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice. Rooms are spacious. The patio/deck is great for our family and friends because it is spacious with lots of room to hang around. Love the wooden gazebo because we eat and chill outside all day and night. Pool is the perfect size. Location is PERFECT, right around the corner from Duval.

Dennis is a great host. Looking forward to renting with Last Key Realty next year.

Beautiful Home In A FANTASTIC Location :)!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Papa's Casita with my husband, 3 yr old daughter, and 5 yr old son. We had an amazing trip! The house was beautiful and incredibly clean. We really enjoyed having a large outdoor deck and covered dining area. The pool was a little smaller than we anticipated, however, it was just fine for taking a dip to cool off or float around on rafts. Off-street parking for 2 vehicles was a great bonus because parking in that area is limited. We had rented a car so it was convenient for us and for my father (who was staying at the Navy Lodge in Key West) to drive over to visit! Dennis was an amazing host. He met us at the house (even though our flight arrived late in the evening) to show us around and help us get acclimated. Dennis was a pleasure to speak with and went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and to accommodate our requests. My son asked him if he wanted to stay with us and asked that he come back to visit us at the very least ;)! I'd highly recommend renting this property and working with Dennis. We hope to stay here again in the future!!
