:: CASA BLANCA 1888 @ WHITE :: HISTORIC / OLD TOWN / VERY LARGE YARD & POOL.....

Key West House Rental Photos and Description

Large 4BR/3BA classic private conch home with large back yard & large pool.

'Casa Blanca 1888' has everything you could want for your stay in Old Town Key West. Its central location in historic Old Town at White Street and Truman Avenue means you will be just steps from the White Street art gallery district, restaurants, grocery stores, Yoga studios and the Coffee Mill. Its size and layout mean that no one will feel crowded. This historic two story home, built circa 1888, was renovated a few years ago and magically holds its historic appeal while feeling incredibly modern and comfortable inside.

THE LIVING AREA...

Fine cherry flooring compliments the original Dade County pine walls that you will find throughout this house. The 19th century is complimented by the 21st century in the kitchen, with custom cabinets, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances including a double door refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, glass top stove, microwave and garbage disposal. Every cooking utensil is provided to prepare gourmet feasts for a group and the breakfast bar is the perfect place to sit while watching someone else do the cooking.

If you decide not to go out on the town, you can always watch the 42 inch flat screen plasma TV with DVD/CD/Surround Sound. The dining table sits six comfortably. The step-down Florida room overlooks the gardens and pool. A full bathroom on the main floor features a shower and is convenient to use while enjoying the large heated pool and tropical gardens. There are 4 porches, upstairs and downstairs, so there’s plenty of personal space available.

THE POOL AREA...

The back yard has to be seen. In a town where any yard at all is a blessing, this home has a huge back yard and pool area. The pool is very large as well, with areas of sun and shade to keep everyone happy. There are two different dining areas and plenty of chaises. There is also a private outdoor shower to rinse off after the beach or pool.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Casa Blanca 1888, a certified historic structure built in 1888, but completely rehabilitated into a current day oasis in Key West had everything we needed for our stay. It was really nice! First Class! The art work was impressive. The furniture including the beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were modern and clean. The kitchen was up to date and fully stocked. There wasn’t anything missing that a guest would need. The back yard pool area was truly an oasis. The large pool, outside shower, large grill and patio furniture were used and enjoyed extensively every day as the weather was so perfect. Our daily trips out for snorkeling, dining or partying were always fun. Biking the island is the best way to move around Key West. Any place you want to go is within 5 to 10 minutes. We met lots of nice people who seemed happy to be in Key West just like us. I highly recommend stay in Casa Blanca 1888.

Casa Blanca - Another Expression for Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Casa Blanca…Another Expression For Paradise.

The review below was posted last year when my wife and I first visited Casa Blanca. It still stands. Unfortunately, this year my wife fell and fractured her hip at another Last Key property and I had to enjoy the house alone for the month. Needless to say, the stay this year was a sad one. The following comments are still valid, however,
and Shel did everything possible to make an unfortunate situation enjoyable.

We arrived at Casa Blanca from New York at 5 pm on a hot Wednesday evening and were greeted by Shel, the Guest Services Manager. He brought in our luggage, carried it upstairs to the master bedroom and made us feel right at home. Next he gave us a tour of this absolutely beautiful 1888 Historic Register Home with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and almost every amenity you could possibly imagine, including one of the largest private pools in Key West. Shel was at our beck and call at a moments notice throughout our stay and his attention to our every need added immensely to our enjoyment. Thank you Shel!

For six glorious weeks we enjoyed this gorgeous home…its large modern kitchen, its living room with a fantastic sound system, its master bedroom with a very comfortable king size bed, its three other bedrooms our guests loved, its off-street parking, its convenient walk-to access to local markets, restaurants, galleries and St. Mary Star of the Sea Basilica.

The 30-foot pool was the star, however. We were in it day and night doing laps or simply floating on our noodles, talking the time away trying to decide which fabulous restaurant we would try that night.

To summarize, our six-week idyll in Paradise was simply perfect. The proof - we’re already booked for a return visit next year.

Casa Blanca 1888 was 5 star Property

  • 5 of 5
Casa Blanca 1888 was a beautiful property and the perfect location for our family vacation of ten. It was close to the beach and about a 15 minute walk to Duval Street. The home was absolutely amazing and beautifully furnished. The open floor plan was perfect for our family. The owners put a lot of love into this home and it definitely showed with all the beautiful upgrades. This home is truly a 5 star property. We really enjoyed the beautiful outdoor landscaping and large outdoor pool. We spent several days and nights just relaxing and enjoying the scenery. We truly loved this home and will be back next year.
Shel the property manager was absolutely amazing. What a wonderful man! He was a big part of making our vacation one we will never forget. He spent a lot of time showing us around the house and giving us suggestions on places to eat and attractions in Key West. He really made us feel extremely comfortable and I can’t thank him enough for that. If we ever needed anything he was there and had it taken care of immediately. He even stopped by to say goodbye on our last day. Shel you are one of a kind and I am so glad that we had the opportunity to get to know you. We will never forget all you did to make our vacation the best.
I would highly recommend using Last Key Realty and I would recommend working with Alex. She was the agent I dealt with and she was wonderful and patient going over each property to see which would best suit our family needs. She was amazing and extremely knowledgeable. I couldn’t be happier with my decision. Thanks Alex for everything.

Owner's Response: Our company is unanimously gratified to find that with these guests, Casa Blanca 1888 and Last Key Realty accomplished our mission: to provide the same spectacular experience and magic we felt when we first came to Key West. Between the private outdoor sanctuary of the back yard and pool area, the open floor plan of the main living area, and the convenient location, Casa Blanca 1888 is a very lovely and special place to stay in Old Town. Perfectly Key West in its local art and furnishings, lovingly restored with up-to-date appliances and amenities, and fully equipped for all occasions. Shel is, as mentioned over and over again, very attentive and dedicated to making sure our guests are as happy as possible and enjoying their Key West experience for their entire stay with us. Alex loves to "play matchmaker" and is driven to match guests with the best possible rental home for their preferences. Most of all, we love hearing that a big family can come and enjoy this wonderful home together and create special Key West memories that will last and last...until, of course, their return visit next year.

A Key West classic i

The house was charming with all the amenities of home, big enough to offer guests personal space, and sufficiently updated to be convenient. It was a lovely place to vacation.

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We so thoroughly loved Casa Blanca last year (see review 5/2/12) that we rebooked this 5 star paradise even before we left. The second stay proved to be as perfect as the first. It's very obvious to us that this is not "just a rental" to the tasteful owners but a home very close to their hearts. Every item looks like it was painstakingly selected. When you go (and you gotta go) be sure to enjoy one of our favorite spots - the comfy chaise on the balcony off the master overlooking the lavish pool. We had a happy surprise this March to see that the owners had added "a charming ice cream table and chairs" to the balcony for a night cap or an eye-opening cup of coffee.

It's all great. Stop looking and be sure to say hello for us to Shel, the Guest Services Manager, who does a terrific job.

Owner's Response: First of all, return guests are the highest compliment we can ever receive - and these particular guests are some of our favorites! We will call them "A&B" to respect their privacy - but "A&B" certainly do appreciate the beauty and charm of this lovely historic home. Their comment that the furnishings are hand-picked is a keen observation - the owners continue to purchase new artwork and furnishings that have turned this home into a mini-gallery of Key West artwork. The comfortable chaises & pool furniture (and new cushions added to all patio furniture in response to previous guest feedback) are indeed the perfect places to relax. We love to picture "A&B" sitting on the master bedroom patio enjoying the view of the pool and the breeze through the palm trees - experiencing the true luxury of this home. Thank you for your kind words, "A&B" and we look forward to seeing you again next year!
