Uptwon/Upper Duval Condo Rental Photos and Description

1st Floor 2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Apartment off Duval St + Private Garden & Spa

This colorful apartment is all you’ll need for your stress-free stay in the Conch Republic. The Mellow Macaw is located right in Old Town near the famous Southernmost Point of the United States, two blocks from the Southernmost Beach, and just steps from Upper Duval Street. You couldn’t be any closer to the nightlife and attractions of downtown (La Te Da and Banana Cafe are a block away, the Hemingway House is just down the street), and yet this tropical two bedroom retreat is tucked around the side of an Old Town home with its own private patio and spa. You won’t need a car, but should you decide to bring one you will have a private off-street parking space.


Through a quaint gate off Virginia Street, pass around a tall tropical tree and follow the path along to your private entryway. Through your hidden gate you’ll be in a completely fenced outdoor porch area with a full outdoor dining area and a private, heat-optional spa. This home is equipped with comfortable patio furniture sitting under a big shady umbrella, and a gas grill for preparing outdoor meals and enjoying happy hour just a quick walk to the attractions that await you on Duval Street.


Opening the front door from the patio you’ll find a cozy, island-inspired home with an open living plan. As you enter the apartment, you’ll be greeted with a brightly colored and comfortable sectional sofa in front of a large flat screen TV. The sectional pulls out to a Queen sized bed to sleep 2 extra guests.


Beside the living area, the open kitchen is fully equipped with all the tools you’ll need to whip up a meal at home. The kitchen is also equipped with an electric stove, oven, and a dishwasher for easy clean up after meals. There’s even a small sound system to set the mood while having dinner.


The master bedroom has a King-sized bed, full closet, overhead fan, and flat screen TV. The master bedroom has a door that opens up to another private patio overlooking Virginia & Whitehead Streets, perfect for some people watching with a morning cup of coffee or an evening cocktail. The second bedroom also has a Queen-sized bed, large armoire, and a television. The bathroom is centrally located, with a glass shower.


Washer & Dryer, Central Heat and A/C, Ceiling Fans, Private Gated & Lushly Landscaped Outdoor Patio with Private Heat-Optional Spa, Propane Grill, LCD Flat Screens, Cable TV, Gourmet Kitchen, Linens and Towels provided. Interim housekeeping provided upon request. Wireless high-speed Internet access included. This property will accommodate up to 6 adults.


Add the rental of Suzy’s Parrot Perch, the 2 bedroom apartment upstairs from The Mellow Macaw, to create a total of 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a private deck with a spa, and off-street parking.

This was our first trip to Key West. The location of the rental was wonderful. Just a block off of Duval and far enough away from the main intersections for calm and peace. The rental was nicely equipped and had all the necessary accouterments. We were looking forward to using the Jacuzzi but it was dirty and we did not use it. There was a lack of sound proofing between the units. Fortunately, we only had a neighbor for one night. But on that night we could hear everything through the walls. Would we stay there again? Probably so the location just can't be beat.

Owner's Response: We were so disappointed to receive this review regarding the jacuzzi after this guest departed. We do everything we can to resolve guest issues with guests in residence, so you can enjoy your stay thoroughly while you are here. That being said, after this review was received we contacted the company that services this jacuzzi and they ended up replacing the motor, which has improved the circulation of the water dramatically and will decrease the likelihood of a "dirty" appearance. The heater has also been serviced and our most recent guests have confirmed that the heat is pumping when set! We hope these guests will return for another opportunity to enjoy the jacuzzi at The Mellow Macaw, and encourage any future guests to notify us while in residence if there is absolutely anything we can do to improve your stay.

Cosy, super comfortable, modern island-style property in the heart of Key West!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfectly comfortable vacation home for our family of three. The rooms were warmly decorated in island style which truly added to the "get-away" feel. The apartment was very clean and supplied well. The agent, Caryn, welcomed us and immediately made us feel at home. Caryn along with the conceierge provided us with great recommendations based on our interests and helped make our stay more enjoyable. This was our second visit to Key West but if we return anytime soon, Last Key Realty will be the first place I will look for our accommodations!

This was my second stay in 2 years.

I think the Mellow Macaw has become my "go to" lodging during Tarpon season. Conveniently located to everything, parking slot, great patio, comfortable beds, Caryn is the best! You'll love it!

A perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The Mellow Macaw was a perfect place for my family and I to stay for a week while vacationing in Key West. Located a block off of Duval Street, and only a mile away from Mallory Square, it was the perfect location to leave the car alone and bike everywhere! The photos do show exactly what to expect when you arrive. The Mellow Macaw exceeded our expectations. It's cozy, and a great place to relax after a day out. The beds were very comfortable, and there were more pillows, linens, and towels than what you'll ever need. All appliances worked great, the A/C was cold, and the place was very clean. The outside patio is secure, and a wonderful place to spend a few hours with friends. The Jacuzzi was relaxing and clean, too. And there's even a sweet black and white cat that spends some time there too. My girls loved seeing him out there. All of these things add up to a great "home away from home" experience. I'll be back....!

Gorgeous spot for our girls trip!

  • 5 of 5

The Mellow Macaw was the perfect location for our girls trip. Just a block from Duval, the condo was very centrally located and we were able to walk to everything. The interior was lovely, just as pictured, and the patio was the best spot for our morning coffee. The guest services coordinator, was very attentive and easy to get in contact with. She provided wonderful recommendations for local attractions and was able to answer all of our questions. Overall, our stay here definitely highlighted an already wonderful vacation!
