THE EXPERIENCE...

"Great summer vacation in Key West. This is the second year we have come down to Key West for our summer vacation and lobster season. Last year we also utilized Last Key Realty to find a great house and we did the same this year. We went down early this year to preview houses and Shel Segel was super accommodating and showed us 8 different houses to pick from. I had contracted 2 other property management offices to show uses additional houses and neither would accommodate our request. Last Key is the only company to use. Shel made the reservation process stress free and is amazingly knowledgeable on all the local restaurants, attractions and activities. He also helped arrange housekeeping and other services throughout our stay. Shel is truly a pleasure and I recommend his services to all future Key West vacationers. Rhapsody in Paradise is a beautiful high end home. The home is in a quiet residential section of downtown Key West. This provides an ambiance that is both relaxing and enjoyable. The backyard with the landscaping and pool was one of our favorite spots to relax. It offers a full list of amenities and is well equipped with all the necessities to which we've become accustomed. We could not have been any happier with our choice this year. Thanks again to Shel for all that he does." -Melinda B. 07/15

THE HOME...

On a quiet one-way lane is a home that will take your breath away with its astonishing attention to detail, creative use of space and incredibly high level of craftsmanship. "Rhapsody In Paradise" was conceived and built by Michael Miller, a local architect who has gained fame for his brilliant tropical home designs.

THE PERFECT HOME, IN THE PERFECT LOCATION...

"Rhapsody In Paradise" is located in the Beachside section of Key West, a quiet neighborhood less than a half mile from Higgs Beach, where you can lay on the beach, dine at Salute or jog with your dog to the Dog Park. Best of all, you'll also be just few blocks from Old Town and all of its many attractions.

THE LIVING AREA...

The front foyer is open and airy. The open floor plan of "Rhapsody In Paradise" has been perfectly executed to maximize your enjoyment of this stunning home. When you watch TV, you'll be glad to know that there is a 50-inch flat screen TV (one of three in the house). The dining table seats six and three more can be seated nearby at the kitchen bar.

THE KITCHEN...

A master chef would be thrilled to work in this kitchen with its top-of-the-line appliances. From its granite counter tops and custom wood cabinets to the Sub-Zero refrigerator, gas range and 200-bottle wine cooler, this kitchen is an epicurean's dream.

THE BACK DECK & POOL AREA...

As you enter the back courtyard the burbling waterfall is a soothing backdrop to this little piece of heaven. You can walk down the stairs into the pool for a relaxing cool-off. Amidst the many loungers and seating areas, you can readily find sun or shade to your preference, with plenty of room for everyone.

THE MEDIA ROOM & WIDOWS WALK...

Upstairs, you can go outside and climb the spiral stairs to a widow's walk; a great place to sit under the stars with good friends. Or, open the door to a media room with a 50 inch TV and comfy recliners for that perfect movie night, completely separate from the bedrooms.

THE ACCOMMODATIONS...

The first master suite is on the first floor, with a king bed, flat screen TV, overhead fan and French doors to a private deck. The private bathroom has a custom shower and a French door directly to the pool area. The second bedroom is in the sumptuous guest cottage, with a queen bed, flat screen TV, vaulted ceiling and French doors on three sides. The bathroom, is of course en-suite. The third bedroom is on the second floor with two twin beds that convert to a king bed, flat screen TV and en-suite bathroom. Last but not least is the expansive Owner's Suite, a spacious bedroom with an impressive four-poster king bed, overhead fan, 50-inch flat screen TV and three sets of French doors. The en-suite master bathroom has a Jacuzzi for two, twin vanities and a custom shower with skylight. The Owner Suite's closet is quite a sight to behold; a walk-in area off the size of another bedroom!

THE AMENITIES...

Central Heat and AC, Ceiling Fans Throughout, Heated Pool, Private gated & lushly landscaped yard with BBQ Grill, Two sets of Washer/Dryers, 50 inch LED Flat Screen TV in living room, media room and Master Bedroom, Flat Screen TV's in all other bedrooms, Expanded Cable TV throughout, DVD Players, Microwave, Blender, Toaster, Full Gourmet Appointed Kitchen, Linens and Towels provided.

Recent Reviews About This Property

The home was fabulous

I just returned from Key West. Rhapsody in Paradise far exceeded my expectations as did Shel and the team from Last Key Realty. Shel met us at the house when we arrived. He gave us a tour of the property, discussed fun things to do and great places to eat, told us about the concierge service provided (very helpful), and gave us a key lime pie as a welcome gift (delicious). Shel went out of his way to make us feel at home. The home was fabulous. It was in a great location on a quiet one-way street. It was beautifully furnished. It had plenty of room for my family. It had a wonderful lanai and a pool. If you like to cook, it has a gourmet kitchen. There was even a great selection games that we really enjoyed playing as a family. If you are planning to visit Key West, look into staying at this property, you won't be disappointed. Finally, when you visit Key West, make sure you experience the sunset from Mallory Square.

Our Key West vacation was perfect

The house (Rhapsody in Paradise) was gorgeous and very well located. One of the best things about the house was Shel, he was there to meet us for check-in and was available by phone or in person any time we had a question about the house or Key West. My granddaughter left a very small stuffed animal and Shel was able to find it and mailed it back to her! Definitely recommend Shel and Last Key Realty.

1418 Leon St Key West - Great Vacation Stay


1418 Leon Street in Key West was the ultimate in luxury rentals for our month long vacation in July, 2017. We had a family reunion with many family members coming and going as well as doing a lot of boating. It could not have been any better if we tried. Last Key Realty was very easy and cooperative to work with throughout the whole process from inquiring, to booking, to making the home ready to arrival then departure. The home was in immaculate condition and just as advertised. Shel was the best. He made sure we were comfortable and all needs met. What a great guy to have performing the property management of this home. I highly recommend both Last Key Realty as well as this home!

1418 leon st Key West Fl

Everything was perfect about the property. The home is beautiful and the outdoor area was great for relaxing and the enjoying the vacation with family. Shel could not have been a better host. If there was any questions or concerns he was right on it. Thank you Shel and the owners of the home. We have been renting in Key West the last 20 plus years and this was certainly my favorite. A month was way too short.

Everything was perfect including the weather. The house is beautiful and the outdoor area was great for relaxing and enjoying the vacation and family. Shel could not have been a better host. If there was any questions or problems he was right on it. Thank you Shel and the owners of the home. A month was way too short.

The home was beautiful and comfortable

Our stay was fantastic and everything we hoped for in a rental home. Shel was great! Anytime we had a question or a concern he was right there to solve it. We had a great time and when the family visited everyone was comfortable in the house. I would love to return to it. I especially loved the rear porch which was just so relaxing.

Heaven on Earth!

I wish I could live here! This home is absolutely gorgeous! So warm and inviting! It is centrally located on a quiet residential street, just a short 2 mile (or less) taxi ride from the airport or to all the excitement in Old Town. However, you may not want to leave this house! Meticulously landscaped with a heated pool and several patios and porches to choose from you will surely be tempted to sit back and relax. It was well appointed...there wasn't a single thing lacking. I actually forgot to bring my hairdryer, and was pleasantly surprised to find one in the drawer of the bathroom vanity. While we didn't do any cooking, we noticed the kitchen was well furnished and there was a nice grill outdoors. They also had plenty of bath and beach towels. Bring at least a change of clothes (there are 2 sets of washers and dryers) and you are set to have a relaxing time in beautiful Key West! We were introduced to Shel Segel upon our arrival and given his contact information should we need anything. It was obvious he took customer service to a new level. He is a very, very kind man. We felt completely comfortable calling him should there be any reason for his services. We can hardly wait to return!

A slice of key west paradise

This is a beautiful, spacious and well maintained hideaway. The house was well equipped for entertaining. Shel Segel at last key realty was extremely helpful and even instrumental in making this an incredible experience. Shel is so knowledgeable of key west and all it has to offer. Our experience with this property and Shel as key west's good will ambassador is a memory of a life time. Thank you Shel Segel and all the rest of the people at last key reality for making our holiday vacation so incredible.
