"Great Place! Exceeded expectations! Headed to Key West for a get-away weekend with a bunch of old friends. Found Casa Louisa on-line and booked a stay, Dennis our Guest Services Coordinator was a great guy, and made a fun trip even better! Will definitely use Last Key Realty for my next stay in Key West! Wonderful time, great accommodations - clean and well maintained! We were within walking distance of all the attractions on the key!" -Joe G. 04/15

Recent Reviews About This Property

Great location

The casa Louisa is an awesome house in a great location. A special thank you to Caryn who really helped us with everything. We had a wonderful time and have already told friends if your going to key west this is the place to stay.

A wonderful spot for a special family vacation!

This was our second trip to Key West but this time with the entire family so we were looking for a spot that we could cook or eat in if desired just to keep costs down. Casa Louisa was the perfect spot! The location is one block off Duval but very quiet. You could walk anywhere worth going from here including Southernmost Point, Mallory Square, the beach, all historical spots, restaurants, bars, etc. The property was clean and well maintained. There were enough kitchen items to prepare simple dinners. Grill worked great and was welcome! The pool is a plunge pool so don't expect to do laps...which you should get from the picture. Furniture is great, beds were ok (but don't use that as a negative...I can't sleep on ANY bed but my own!). This house is tiny. There were five adults in our group and without the outdoor area we would have been pretty cramped for five days. But you don't go to Key West to be inside! I think the greatest thing about this property is the Last Key staff that go over and above, and I do mean over and above, to make your stay special. We worked with Caryn and I felt like I had my own concierge! She helped arrange for a special dinner, confirmed reservations, met us at the house upon arrival and even held a parking spot in front of the house for us! She was simply outstanding! From first inquiry re: the property to our departure, this was an outstanding experience. I would highly recommend renting from Last Key and using Casa Louisa!

Marlene H, 03/01/2017


Home was just as described on the web site. We loved it. My husband, myself and our 9 & 14 year old grandkids traveled with us. Plenty of room, the kids each had their own room and if you wanted company there were still 2 pullout . The pool was a hit, not to big but did the trick, the 9 year old spent a lot of time in it. We would without a doubt stay here again. The location was great at the quieter end of Duval St. I saw in a June review that the deck and such was run down, it's all new now. Highly recommend this property.

Terri L, 08/05/2016

Comfortable and well located

There were four of us staying in Casa Louisa for a long weekend and though its diminutive size worked well for us, we did not think it would be comfortable for any more than four. The listing description represents the property accurately but one needs to realize that small is small. The house is nicely maintained although the backyard suffers in comparison to the photos presented--it is a bit rundown and the decking seems to have been replaced by indoor/outdoor carpeting. Indeed, the location is right off Duval and at the quieter end--close to restaurants and walking distance to the water and attractions. Last Key was very accommodating and held and delivered our luggage when we arrived early the first day. If there were half-star options, we would have rated the property

3 1/2 stars.

Loretta K, 06/10/2016

Great location and a great property

We have stayed here six times and loved it every time. The house is small but well laid out. The location is great. They have just upgraded the fridge, furniture and back yard. They pruned all the trees in the small back yard and that took away from the island feel but it gives sun all day as a trade.   

Mikel H, 05/26/2016

Best vacation ever!

My family and I had a fabulous vacation at Casa Louisa! The house was the perfect size for our family. The location was perfect! Close to the beach and away from the craziness of Duval St. Everything was in walking distance. It was nice to have the dipping pool to jump into after a day at the beach or whatever excursion we were on during the day. I don't think I will ever stay in a hotel again. So nice to have our kitchen and separate bedrooms. Dennis was most accommodating. We had a problem with the gas grill, but that was due to us not being familiar with how gas grills operate and Dennis was very helpful on getting it going. The downside was that the drier broke while we there. But again Dennis was willing to come and pick up our wet laundry and dry it for us. That was not necessary I just laid out the few clothes we washed and they dried by that night. I recommend this place highly! Also, would go the other way on Louisa street and check out the cute restaurants on Simonton. I couldn't have asked for a better vacation!

Casa Louisa Winter Vacation

Casa Louisa was a perfect choice for our month long Key West vacation. The location was excellent and very close to restaurants, shops and fun things to do. We often had breakfast around the corner at the Banana Cafe and Frenchie's. The Blue Heaven quickly became our favorite lunch and dinner spot but there's so many great restaurants within walking distance that it is truly difficult to rate one better than another. The home was a great size and well appointed for us and our guests. The house was clean and well maintained. Everything worked well. Dennis Bentley (Last Key Realty) followed up with us regularly during our 30 day stay to make sure all was good and to help with any questions. He was a wonderful "go to" person and easy to talk with. We did a wonderful sunset cruise on the Spirit of Independence and would highly recommend that. The evening was relaxing and fun. The Captain and staff were very nice and easy to be with and made us feel at home as we watched an incredible sunset. I would definitely recommend Casa Louisa for a fun and relaxing Key West vacation.

Great House at the end of a great street on a great island!

We have stayed here five times and enjoyed it every time. As soon as I get through with this review I will book a week in the spring. The house is great and the location is perfect a block off Duvall and on the upper end away from the bars but a short walk if that is what you want. The house and yard is small and would be crowded for more than four. A fantastic place for a romantic long weekend or even a month at a time. No issues, No complaints.   

Mikel H, 11/04/2015

5 Star Service and Stay

This property has a concierge service! Dennis met us at the house instead of going to an office to pick up the keys, a nice touch. He was great and answered text and phone calls immediately. The loft was perfect for 2 older teen age girls who enjoyed the privacy. The location could not have been better, either way you walk out of the house you could have breakfast at the end of the street! Duval was a few steps away and far enough away that it was quiet at night. You really don't need to use your car as everything is within walking distance. The small pool in back was perfect for all the kids. We had a great family get away and would highly recommend this place or any of the Last Key Realty properties as the staff exceeds your expectations! Thanks again Dennis!!

Great Location

The house was great, perfect location just off of Duval Street, with plenty of room for the 4 of us. The pool was great for taking an afternoon dip to cool off.   

Chris C, 09/26/2015


I rented this place for a Girl's Weekend Get-Away, and CASA LOUISA was the perfect house to enjoy a relaxing weekend. The house is walking distance to the bars on Duval Street, but far enough where you can still enjoy some peace. The pool in the backyard was a definite bonus, and was a great place to lounge. It was lovely to have a full kitchen as well! Dennis, the Guest Services Coordinator, was extremely accommodating. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others.   

Lydia M, 08/06/2015

The property was Great!!

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Louisa. It was close the everything we wanted to do. The dipping pool in the back was a big hit!!!a   

Mary C, 07/19/2015

Awesome Location - Great Home with Room for Everyone

This is not the first time we've stayed in this home, but about the fifth! We just love it. It's literally steps to Duval Street - about 25 to be exact! The house has been fully remodeled with luxury linens and mattress's throughout. The furnishings are comfortable and the loungers by the pool are a welcome site for an afternoon siesta after a fun night of entertainment on Duval Street. The pool is just big enough for a nice dip and cool off. Having your own washer and dryer makes for being able to pack and bring less! Two full bathrooms are a bonus as well. The kitchen provides everything one needs for meal prep and having a gas grill on the deck is great for cookouts. Two of my favorite parts of the house are the front master suite, which is great for us when traveling with our son. It gives us the privacy we like in our own space with separate a/c and TV for us. The second is the front porch. Nothing is better than sitting out front watching the daily happenings of life on Louisa Street. This is truly one of our favorite homes in Key West. Thank you to Last Key Realty for always making our stay exceptional. The house is always spotless clean and in top condition! We'll be back!!!   

Distinctive B, 06/13/2015


 Dennis was very attentive in the days leading up to our stay and made sure all our questions were answered. He was at the property when we arrived and again when we were checking out, just to say hi/bye and make sure we were OK.

The house was SO CUTE! We used it for a girl’s weekend and it was perfect for us. It was very clean and stocked with all the essentials. The pool was great and seems like it was bigger than the pictures convey! Parking is first come-first served, so once you park the car you def. don't want to move it. Money well spent! Will definitely book this property if I'm ever in Key West again!

Lauren W, 05/21/2015

Great Place! Exceeded expectations!

Headed to Key West for a get-away weekend with a bunch of old friends. Found Casa Louisa on-line and booked a stay, Dennis our Guest Services Coordinator was a great guy, and made a fun trip even better! Will definitely use Last Key Realty for my next stay in Key West! Wonderful time, great accommodations - clean and well maintained! We were within walking distance of all the attractions on the key!

Perfect Birthday Weekend Getaway!

What a PERFECT house! I celebrated my 30th birthday with husband and friends; there were 8 of us in the house.  We were able to convert the front sitting room into a makeshift room with a blow up bed and it worked great! The house is fantastic and it couldn't have been located in a better spot. We walked everywhere since Duvall street was not even a minute walk! Best part of the house was the dipping pool - perfect size to lounge around and cool off. Dennis did a fantastic job of checking on us and making sure we were taken care of. Thank you so much Dennis! :) If you are looking for a great locale to rent down in Key West, take my word for it - this house is great!

Thanks again for such a wonderful stay, we all had so much fun!


Jenna A, 04/16/2015

Perfect home away!!

I would "absolutely" refer this property to friends.  It was close to everything but far enough away from the noise to be perfect. Just minutes from the Southernmost point and 1/2 block off of Duval. We stayed 7 days and enjoyed a short walk to coffee, dinner and bars. The condition of the property was excellent and well maintained.  The home has three nice sized bedrooms and for two of us it was more than enough. It's not a large cottage so I wouldn't personally recommend more than 6. It might get cramped. The manager did provide great customer service. The Concierge, not so much, but the manager made up for it in the end. We thoroughly enjoyed this property.

Donna C, 11/29/2014

Great Vacation

The property was a great. Caryn who checked us in was great and we had a great vacation. The house was clean and was in a great location. I would definitely rent a house from this company again. I came for my wife's Birthday and Caryn and Last Key Realty made it the best birthday she has ever had.   

Brad B, 11/14/2014

Great house and rental experience!

My friends and I had a great stay at Casa Louisa. We were greeted by our rental person upon arrival which made check-in super easy. The house was very clean and well-equipped.  We spent hours relaxing in the backyard- the pool is bigger than it looks in the photos. The location of this house is PERFECT! I highly recommend grabbing your morning coffee at Café Mocha at the end of the block.   

Derek Z, 10/09/2014

Perfect location-close to action, but not in it

Fantastic property. Well maintained. Very clean. Just off Duval so you are close to all the action. But 1/2 block off Duval gives you the peace and quiet when you want it. Walking distance (< 1 mile) to Mallory Square, Southernmost point, beach, and everything in between. Property management was easy to get a hold off and offered helpful tips. Pool was just the right size (not too big, not too small). There was a washer/dryer and detergent was included to make our stay easier. Highly recommend.   

James J, 08/16/2014

Perfect Island Getaway!

Casa Louisa was PERFECT! Located just off of Upper Duval it was walking distance to all the high-points of Key West without being right in the middle of things. Perfect for a lazy weekend girls trip reunion weekend. The house was well appointed and comfortable. We LOVED the pool and deck! Caryn was prompt and easily reached to help us get situated upon arrival. Although we wound up not renting bicycles the concierge service at Last Key was extremely helpful in doing research and pointing us in the right direction. Would definitely recommend this property to others for rental and would return myself.   

Krystin E, 07/31/2014

Very charming, thought of everything we needed.

The house was very charming and clean. Even though it was on the smaller side, everything was there we needed and we did not feel crowded at all. I thought the owner used the space wisely and she thought of everything. The pool was a must in the July heat and just perfect size for us to jump in and cool off.

Sallyann L, 07/19/2014

Truly a "Home Away from Home"!

Casa Louisa was a great place to stay. Exactly as described. Clean, comfortable, great amenities, great location and friendly coordination by the staff. Also super easy check out. We would definitely stay here again!   

Gail T, 06/07/2014

Perfect Getaway

My partner and I rented Casa Louisa for 7 days to celebrate our tenth anniversary. I can't say enough about the house, it was perfect for our needs and was so homey and comfortable it was hard to leave it each morning to venture out for the day! Caryn took excellent care of us and was attentive and quick to solve any issues we had. Casa Louisa is just steps from Duval and all the action, but located in a quieter area of Duval so we were able to get away from the craziness and enjoy peace and quiet each evening. Rent Casa won't be sorry.   

Joni H, 02/08/2014

Wonderful stay at Casa Louisa

There were 7 of us, a college reunion of sorts, and we had a great time. The listing was very accurate and the property was clean and comfortable. The extras were appreciated - wi fi, TV's in each room, washer/dryer. Caryn, our personal services coordinator was great - met us for the opening and closing and went thru the ins and outs. The place was well equipped with glassware, appliances, and everything needed for meals.

We really enjoyed lunch at Latitudes (right on the water), a restaurant on an island (boat ride over), as well as lazy dog kayak tour (they picked us up and outfitted us for the 3 hr. paddle). Sunset at Mallory Square was fun.  Butterfly Museum (so-so). The only thing I'd mention is that if you have more than 6 (3 couples), the pull outs are both in an open area with no privacy in terms of complete wall to ceiling to one of the bedrooms.  Overall, an excellent property!

Ideal Get Away

Property was exactly as described & pictured. The location was excellent, a block from all the action, yet delightfully quiet for relaxing. The property managers were easy to work with from initial contact to departure. Additionally, ALL of their recommendations were spot on!   

Lisa C, 11/19/2013


We attended for a 30th birthday celebration and it was exactly what we expected it to be. It was on the far end of Duval Street down by the most southern point, but there was so much to do everywhere at any time. You never had to walk too far to get to nightlife/dining/entertainment. We would stay here again and recommend to everyone we know. Not only was the location great but the house itself was the perfect size! We had 6 adults and every room was a good size for the amount of time you physically stay in the house. The back yard was perfect, we took full advantage of the pool/spa and the grill. It was VERY clean and any issues we needed Shel was there the second we called him. Thank you for making this stay so special and we can’t wait to come back again!!!
