|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
This unique home has been painstakingly decorated and furnished to a very high level, in the distinctive Bahamian style. Your style of living in this home will be very Bahamian as well, with large French doors that open up to provide an open plan for tropical indoor/outdoor living. The pool is just steps away from the living room sectional or the outdoor dining area. You?ll never want to leave this peaceful oasis, and yet you'll be just two blocks from Duval Street, with all its attractions, like the Green Parrot and Willie T's to enjoy some live music, Mallory Square for entertainment and a sunset stroll. Best of all, you?ll be less than a half mile from the Fort Zachary Taylor State Park Beach for a day of snorkeling and sun.
Combine the uniquely Bahamian decor of this home with the perfect location and the amenities of a private heated pool and private off-street parking, and you have the ideal spot to relax and recharge.
THE POOL & PATIO...
The pool is large enough for everyone in your group, with plenty of room to swim around with both sun and shade throughout the day.
The pool area includes comfortable chaise lounges to relax in your own oasis all day. A large propane BBQ grill sits in the back yard as well. There is a full outdoor dining set right by the pool for a great island meal after a day of sun.
THE COMMON AREAS...
The open living plan, with those big French Doors is perfect for entertaining. The living area has a plush sectional sofa. There are additional comfortable chairs in front of a large flat screen HDTV with full cable and DVD player. There's the fully equipped chef's kitchen, a beautifully designed space with gourmet appliances created for those who LIVE in the kitchen (when you're not dining at one of the amazing nearby restaurants). You'll find lots of hidden treasures in this kitchen: from the extra bar seating for three, to the 42' counter-depth refrigerator/freezer. Off the kitchen is a lovely dining area that overlooks the open living area.
The master bedroom is on the second floor, with a grand King-sized bed, flat screen TV, walk-in closet, plenty of dresser space, and private balcony overlooking the pool area. The master bathroom is en-suite, with dual sinks and an oversized shower. The second bedroom upstairs has a queen bed, a private balcony and a full bathroom in the hall.

Have made the trip to Fantasy Fest for the past many years. Found a house through Last Key Reality for this past years trip. House and location could not have been better. The property was just as described and presented through the web site. Everything was top of the notch including our host, Shel. Shel made a point to reach out to me before my arrival and confirm everything would be in place when I arrived. He personally met me at the house to provide the keys and answer any questions. Last Key Reality also offers to help setup anything one might need during the stay. As years past the trip was a blast and over in a blur. Shel was also on site the day of departure to offer any help if needed. Trip and accommodations went so well I had 2017 Fantasy Fest trip booked 6 weeks after we left. Booked again with Last Key and expect we will have the same great service.
Had a wonderful week. This home is very comfortable and close to everything. Looking forward to returning again sometime later this year.
We rented this home for Thanksgiving week. It was my husband and I and our 3 sons who are in their early twenties. It was perfect for us. Close enough to walk to Duval St. and all the action but secluded in the Truman Annex where it was very quiet and secluded. The pool was great for everyone to use. The decor of the house was very tastefully done and the house was very clean. Shel met us upon arrival and oriented us to everything in the house. He was very helpful and kind. He even texted us the next day to make sure we had everything we needed. I would definitely rent this home again.
Bahamian Bamboo was a fantastic place for our son's wedding week. We had 7 adults and 2 babies, and had more than enough room. The backyard pool made for great fun morning , afternoon, and evening. The neighborhood was so private, and gave us time away from the crowds during the day, but only 5 minutes from Duval St. When we wanted to take advantage of it. Shel of Lastkeyrealty made our stay perfect. He was there to answer all questions, make recommendations, and even stop by when we had a TV Cable problem. Shel knows the town and made us all feel welcome. I will be back to Bahamian Bamboo in Truman Annex.
Over the last 15 years I have rented a home in Key West every year and sometimes twice a year so I know a nice rental and this was the best one bar none. First of all the service provided by Shel at Lastkey Realty was what took the stay over the top. They pay detail attention about any and all issues that might and do arise with any stay in Key West. Help with anything was just a phone call away. The compound itself has a large, by Key West standards, pool with beautiful tropical foliage and covered patio areas both good from escaping the sun and the rain. The bamboo theme throughout was welcoming and the furniture was beautiful. This will be the next rental for 2017 without a doubt.
We have enjoyed our time here greatly. The neighborhood is quiet as befits a gated community. You don't have to walk far to be in the heart of Key West, be it the beautiful homes and neighborhoods of Old Town, the funkiness of Bahama Village, or the nearly non-stop party of Upper Duval.
Walking a bit further takes you to Southernmost Point. A few extra blocks east will take you to the Eaton St Seafood Market, one of my favorites. Stone crab season is only a few weeks away! A few hundred yards east of Southernmost is Louie's Backyard, another favorite. Keep going and enjoy a drink or two by the pool at Casa Marina.
Back to the house - I'd call it two and a half bedrooms, but the downstairs is fine for the kids. The Master suite is very nice upstairs. The neighbor is nosy and seems to enjoy working on the roof of his carport.
The management company, Last Key Realty, has been a pleasure to work with. Shel is the best!
