Wonderful Key West Experience

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, clean, fully loaded home in a wonderful, friendly, quiet, neighborhood. Home is exactly as described and pictured. Parking no problem and home is well located. Every detail taken care of for you. Property Manager, Clyde, is attentive when you need him and truly has your comfort top of mind which makes you feel like you are his only customer. This is our 3rd stay in Key West in LastKey properties and we have already secured our home for next year (like to stay in different houses each year). Top notch group of people to work with at LastKey which you will not regret booking with.

truly in every way a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The house both inside and outside was all one could want in a vacation rental. The kitchen was a modern wonder, a chef's delight. The bedrooms were all one could want for comfort, each with its own private bath The living room/dining room was the true center of the house: a most comfortable dining experience for six, a state of the art flat screen LED TV, a most useful wet bar, all of this with a view of the lanai, the pool and the lovely bougainvillea that was a very private retreat for us throughout our month's stay. Two outside porches for one's quiet moments in one of the key's best neighborhoods. The manager was most responsive to all our requests. Simply put, this is our first choice in Key West when we return, a view shared by all the friends who visited us during our stay.

Outstanding Home and Organization.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home. It is accurately described and the photographs accurately depict the property. The organization is terrific and very easy to work with. Krystal, our coordinator for this home was outstanding. Always available and no inquire too small or too large. She dealt with all of them promptly and efficiently. While this is a terrific home, I suggest that even if you find it too small or too large or not at the location you desire you should work with the organization. They have a large selection of home and I am sure you will find one that works.

Incredible Home... Awesome comfort

  • 5 of 5

For years I have been renting homes in Key West for a month. This was the FIRST time I was happy to be in a home for that long. In fact, my daughter sat on the floor and said "This stinks" when we had to leave. and she is 28!!

So many of the homes weren't clean enough for her to sit on the floor!

We enjoyed the privacy and cleanliness of the pool area, gas grill clean and the hot tub heated up quickly, which was great.

We all enjoyed cooking in the very well equipped kitchen. We didn't want for anything. Except, the microwave stopped working so I called the property manager "Shel". I acted like I was angry because we wanted to watch the Tim McGraw Special and make popcorn later that evening. (LOL) He asked me if it would be okay to have a maintenance man stop by in the morning to fix it and even asked ME what time would be best. Then he offered to bring us popcorn. The next morning, Shel arrived with the microwave man, found the problem and until it could be corrected, Shel brought a brand new microwave for us to use in the meantime, in case we needed popcorn!! He apologized that it had to take up counter space!

Another time, the icemaker stopped and I texted Shel, he offered to bring ice over immediately. That was about 8pm at night. Of course, I didn't. Later I noticed the handle in the icemaker was pushed up. DUH.

I found out when you are on such an incredible vacation, with a property manager who truly cares about your comfort during your stay, your brain goes into slow mode.

I told Shel that "If I had to complain about something, it would be the towels weren't soft enough" and then I laughed. Shel didn't. Soon after that comment, he brought over different laundry soap with extra softeners. Too funny. I also have to say the laundry set up was top of the line. However, that ended up costing me a couple grand more. When I came home, I had to order the same washer and dryer they had. I loved them. Fast and quiet!

We all LOVE the location and the private, fenced in car port for our mopeds. This home is in a very quiet, walkable, safe community. Our neighbors we rarely seen but very nice. No complaints there.

Over the month stay, I had 15 guests. Not one complained only praised "MY HOME".

I appreciated EVERYTHING in this home but MOSTLY SHEL!

I would recommend this home 100% but not during May. That is MY MONTH from now on!

A special thank you to the owners for sharing such a well built, beautifully decorated home. WOW

Owner's Response: Great review! We’re sure your daughter is NOT the first 28-year-old to be upset to leave Key West. We are glad to hear that your stay at Bella Petronia was a delightful one. Shel, along with all of our Guest Services Coordinators, genuinely enjoy helping our guests to have the best possible vacation, and are always available to handle any problems that may arise during their stay. We’ll see you next May!

Lovely home in Key West, quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We have been visiting Key West for over 40 years, and have had vacation experiences that ranged from delightful to woe begone, from homes that were not "ready for prime time." Bella Petronia is way up at the high end of the scale. A pleasant location without undue noise, nicely decorated, and in good repair. It was also much cleaner that we have often encountered. Last Key was easy to deal with and attentive to our needs. Property manager, Shel, was easy to reach and took care of anything that needed attention promptly. We look forwar to returning n the near future.

A great place. Nice and quiet. Slept with our windows open. A short, easy bike ride to all the Key West sites. Excellent property.
