This property was immaculate and exceeded all expectations for what we were looking for our family vacation. We had several family members come to visit throughout our stay in Key West. They all raved about how wonderful the home was. The location was perfect. We were within walking distance of just about everything. The neighborhood was great.
From the moment we walked in we felt like we were at home. It was clean, comfortable and had plenty of room for all our extended family. Excellent amenities and a gorgeous backyard with an huge pool.
Shel Segel our property manager went over and above to make sure are vacation was one we would never forget. Anything we needed he was just a phone call away. Shel you are one of kind and we were blessed to have you as our property manager. Words can not describe how wonderful you are.
I would also like to thank Alex from Last Key Realty for helping us find our vacation dream house. Our vacation started with you. You are absolutely amazing and a pleasure to work with. You found our perfect match. Our family we will cherish those memories forever.
I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who is going to Key West and hopefully you will have the opportunity to work with Shel and Alex.
Fantastic stay at Casa Blanca!
We stayed for the month of June in this amazing home. Casa Blanca fit all of our needs--plenty of bedrooms for our grown kids, a wonderful pool, and we were able to bring our dog, which was the icing on the cake. The home brilliantly combines the old with the new, original moldings and woodwork but with all the conveniences that make it a great vacation home. There is plenty of room to relax, indoors or out. We'll definitely be back!
We spent a month at Casa Blanca and I have to say we loved everything about this home. It truly is a magnificent property. It had every amenity you could ever want and more. The owners really put a lot of TLC into this home and it showed. The house was immaculate, comfortable, spacious and a perfect home for our extended family of 8. The kitchen was large and well stocked which allowed us to cook most of our own meals. The bedrooms were a perfect size and had been freshly painted. There were plenty of bathrooms and an outdoor shower which was fantastic. The pool was huge and the landscaping around the pool was unbelievable. We spent a lot of evenings in the backyard relaxing, cooking out and just enjoying the scenery. We felt like we were in paradise. The house is perfectly located and a short walk to Duval Street. Our flight was delayed several hours so we didn’t land until after midnight. We were concerned when we got to the house that it would be dark and would not be able to find our way around inside. Thanks to Shel, he made sure the house was well light, A/C running and music playing when we opened the door. It was so welcoming, and that was the start of our vacation in paradise. Shel was absolutely amazing. I can’t thank him enough for all his tips on restaurants, sightseeing and just taking the time to stop by to see if there was anything we needed. You are a remarkable man and you were a big part of making our vacation one we will never forget. This home gets 10 stars in my book and I highly recommend this property.
Casa Blanca - Another Expression for Paradise
Casa Blanca…Another Expression For Paradise.
The review below was posted last year when my wife and I first visited Casa Blanca. It still stands. Unfortunately, this year my wife fell and fractured her hip at another Last Key property and I had to enjoy the house alone for the month. Needless to say, the stay this year was a sad one. The following comments are still valid, however,
and Shel did everything possible to make an unfortunate situation enjoyable.
We arrived at Casa Blanca from New York at 5 pm on a hot Wednesday evening and were greeted by Shel, the Guest Services Manager. He brought in our luggage, carried it upstairs to the master bedroom and made us feel right at home. Next he gave us a tour of this absolutely beautiful 1888 Historic Register Home with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and almost every amenity you could possibly imagine, including one of the largest private pools in Key West. Shel was at our beck and call at a moments notice throughout our stay and his attention to our every need added immensely to our enjoyment. Thank you Shel!
For six glorious weeks we enjoyed this gorgeous home…its large modern kitchen, its living room with a fantastic sound system, its master bedroom with a very comfortable king size bed, its three other bedrooms our guests loved, its off-street parking, its convenient walk-to access to local markets, restaurants, galleries and St. Mary Star of the Sea Basilica.
The 30-foot pool was the star, however. We were in it day and night doing laps or simply floating on our noodles, talking the time away trying to decide which fabulous restaurant we would try that night.
To summarize, our six-week idyll in Paradise was simply perfect. The proof - we’re already booked for a return visit next year.
Casa Blanca was just as described. It was very clean and well maintained. Our property manager, Shel, was very attentive to our needs. The pool is amazing and my family thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Casa Blanca 1888 was 5 star Property
Casa Blanca 1888 was a beautiful property and the perfect location for our family vacation of ten. It was close to the beach and about a 15 minute walk to Duval Street. The home was absolutely amazing and beautifully furnished. The open floor plan was perfect for our family. The owners put a lot of love into this home and it definitely showed with all the beautiful upgrades. This home is truly a 5 star property. We really enjoyed the beautiful outdoor landscaping and large outdoor pool. We spent several days and nights just relaxing and enjoying the scenery. We truly loved this home and will be back next year.
Shel the property manager was absolutely amazing. What a wonderful man! He was a big part of making our vacation one we will never forget. He spent a lot of time showing us around the house and giving us suggestions on places to eat and attractions in Key West. He really made us feel extremely comfortable and I can’t thank him enough for that. If we ever needed anything he was there and had it taken care of immediately. He even stopped by to say goodbye on our last day. Shel you are one of a kind and I am so glad that we had the opportunity to get to know you. We will never forget all you did to make our vacation the best.
I would highly recommend using Last Key Realty and I would recommend working with Alex. She was the agent I dealt with and she was wonderful and patient going over each property to see which would best suit our family needs. She was amazing and extremely knowledgeable. I couldn’t be happier with my decision. Thanks Alex for everything.
Our company is unanimously gratified to find that with these guests, Casa Blanca 1888 and Last Key Realty accomplished our mission: to provide the same spectacular experience and magic we felt when we first came to Key West. Between the private outdoor sanctuary of the back yard and pool area, the open floor plan of the main living area, and the convenient location, Casa Blanca 1888 is a very lovely and special place to stay in Old Town. Perfectly Key West in its local art and furnishings, lovingly restored with up-to-date appliances and amenities, and fully equipped for all occasions. Shel is, as mentioned over and over again, very attentive and dedicated to making sure our guests are as happy as possible and enjoying their Key West experience for their entire stay with us. Alex loves to "play matchmaker" and is driven to match guests with the best possible rental home for their preferences. Most of all, we love hearing that a big family can come and enjoy this wonderful home together and create special Key West memories that will last and last...until, of course, their return visit next year.
