First off the house is beautiful and the location is a perfect "10" . Upon our arrival the house was just as advertised , clean and well maintained . Keith ( prop manager ) showed us the property and he was EXTREMELY attentive to all our needs for the entire trip , he definitely made us feel at ease that everything would be taken care of . The 1 or 2 minor issues were IMMEDIATELY addressed and resolved . The location of the house is literally perfect , 7 minute bike ride to one end of the island and a 7 minute bike ride to the other end . No car needed at this location unless your planning on traveling off the island . We did have guests so the 2 car driveway did come in handy . There is a restaurant behind the house that is open for breakfast and lunch , which at times made it a little annoying when we were chilling poolside . Pretty simple fix for the owner would be to create a thick landscaping buffer to reduce the noise and add privacy . Definitely will be returning to this house if the landscaping buffer goes up . Great house everybody , kick back and enjoy
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.
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. .
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!

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
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.
