My college aged son, his three cousins, my sister-in-law, my sister and I had a wonderful week at Casa Victoria.My favorite place to hang out was near the pool, at the outdoor table, which is protected by rain with a roof.
Almost all of the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and are very comfortable with ceiling fans (note that the original windows don't open but the doors to the balconies do and there is street noise from Truman Ave that two of the bedrooms deal with) and the dining room table is conducive to gather around, if one is in the mood to cook. We took advantage of all of the fantastic restaurants within walking distance and highly recommend going to 915 Duval for lunch or dinner. The galley kitchen is suitable for easy meals, although it is not as easily set up for big dinners (but who wants to do elaborate dinners given all of the delicious food being served at a plethora of restaurants). We enjoyed watching some TV in the living room and the television worked well. The room itself does not have enough comfortable seating for more than four or five people. We loved all of the balconies and old world charm of the house and took advantage of not only the pool, but also the the huge hot tub. We rented mopeds and bikes from just a couple of blocks away, bought groceries from Fausto's, which is about five blocks away, got take out Cuban food three blocks away, and basically did not use our rental car except when going to the airport and taking a tour of the island and showing relatives where we lived when my sister and I lived in KW in the 70's. Everything is so easy and the food and services really are so close: Smathers and Higgs beaches are a bike ride or long walk away. I had taken my daughter with her cousins to KW 5 years ago and then our second oldest this time. He had no idea what to expect and loved going so much he asked if we could go back next year. Our 15 year old has something to look forward to when he gets to college. Shel from Last Key and I realized we moved to KW the same year and knew some of the same people, which made for a nice icebreaker and additional trips down memory lane. He was very friendly and cordial and attended to some maintenance items that came up in a very timely manner.
I loved the house. Beautiful home with lots of space a great pool and poolhouse. Location was top notch. Best of all Shel and Last Key Realty were wonderful. Made everything easy and took good care of us.
Casa Victoria is a beautiful historic home in old town Key West. We rented bikes and walked many places. There were 10 of us celebrating a birthday and family reunion and it was just perfect for us! We had plenty of room! The accommodations were great! Never a need to call Shel and ask for anything! And speaking of Shel...he met my niece upon arrival to check in to the home, and then when I flew in later that day he came back to introduce himself to me and was just the most accommodating host! The day we departed, he stopped by again to talk with us about our stay! He was above and beyond anything I have experienced staying in a rental-just the nicest man! (thanks again Shel!)
Now, that being said, honestly, it is an old home, and on a busy street, so it can be noisy at night! We were there the same weekend there was some sort of motorcycle event, and it was LOUD, 24/7. But I still give our stay 5 stars:) And highly recommend Last Key Realty.
Clean, modern, sleeps 10 comfortably.
Great location, love having a pool and a hot tub. We will be back.
We had an amazing holiday in this villa, it's very quirky and full of character, but the service we received from Shel was outstanding nothing was too much trouble and he reponded very quickly with any questions or issues we had. Having stayed her many times he is the best and will definitely be back!!!!
