Overview Read Reviews


"Awesome Vacation Rental. We had a great time at the Commander's Sanctuary. Shel from Last Key Realty was great, as was everyone else we interacted with at Last Key. The house is quite large and was easily able to accommodate our party of 9. The house is very near Old Town Key West, but was in an area that was quite a bit quieter than other hotels that are closer to Duval Street. This was a positive in my opinion. Also, Last Key arranged bike rentals, a dolphin and snorkeling tour in addition to a trip to Dry Tortugas National Park for us. We had no issues whatsoever with anything Last Key arranged for our group. Our experience with Shel and Last Key Realty was outstanding from start to finish." -John & Denise I. 06/15


If you are coming to Key West then you deserve the true island treatment: luxurious and spacious accommodations in a central location with private waterfront access and your own pool. "The Commander's Sanctuary" is just that. In the small community of Paradise Harbor you'll have the perfect setting to enjoy the ultimate Key West vacation with plenty of space to stretch out in your own accommodations when it's time to escape. Whether you're cooling off inside this upscale home, relaxing by your private pool or heading out on the beautiful waters of Key West from your private boat slip, your stay in Old Town Key West will be the best of all things at "The Commander's Sanctuary."


The unique location of this home is the best of all things Key West: right on the water at Garrison Bight with a private dock and boat slip in Old Town off Eaton St. You'll be close to the Historic Seaport's restaurants and shops and just a short walk from Duval Street and the White Street galleries. All of the typical Key West spots are accessible by a short walk or bike ride, but should you decide to drive there is private off-street parking for two cars with this home. Speaking of parking, this home also includes a private boat slip on the docks behind the home.


Climb the stairs or take the private elevator from the first floor parking area up to the main level living & kitchen space. This modern island home has bright, tropical colors, tall ceilings, and luxurious modern furnishings. Slide open the floor to ceiling glass doors for a waterfront view all day. The living area boasts a large flat screen HDTV with DVD player which you can watch from the comfort of the plush living room furniture or the kitchen/dining areas thanks to the open living plan of this main floor. The living room sofa also pulls out to a queen sized bed for extra guests. The kitchen is fully equipped with state-of-the-art appliances and all of the tools and utensils you will need to prepare a meal at home. The dining area has seating for 6, with 3 additional seats at the kitchen bar. There is also an iPod dock in the living area to play some music while everyone gathers on the main floor.


Through the sliding glass doors of the living area is one of the highlights of "The Commander's Sanctuary": the private back yard complete with two private decks and a private pool. Fully fenced for privacy and surrounded by lush tropical greenery, this will undoubtedly be a primary gathering place for your group. There are chaise lounges by the heat-optional pool when it's time for a swim and some sun. A full outdoor dining set by the pool can comfortably seat 6 with another outdoor dining set on the second floor porch above with space for 4 more. The backyard is complete with a large propane grill for an outdoor barbecue by the pool. Enter through the back gate to the waterfront dock area only accessible by those staying in Paradise Harbor.


This home was designed to provide comfort and space for a group. Take the private elevator or climb the stairs to the top two floors where you will find the accommodations. The master bedroom is on the second living level, and has a king-sized bed, a large flat-screen TV, plenty of dresser space and a private balcony overlooking the water. The master bathroom is en-suite with dual sinks, a large soaking tub, a glass and marble shower and a huge walk-in closet. The second bedroom is also on the second living level and has a queen sized bed, a flat-screen TV and a private balcony. The second bathroom is also en-suite and has a tub/shower. The third level can sleep a total of 6: there is a private bedroom with two twin beds that can convert to a king upon request and an open room with another 4 twin beds, which can convert to 2 king sized beds upon request. The third level accommodations share one full bathroom with a tub/shower. Additional sleeping area is available in the living room, as the sofa pulls out into a queen bed. There is also a half bath off the living room on the main floor.


Washer & Dryer, Central Heat and A/C, Ceiling Fans, Off-Street Parking, Flat Screen State-of-the-art HD TVs in all bedrooms and main living area, Fully Equipped Chef's Kitchen with Gourmet Appliances, Private Pool with available Pool Heat, Private Boat Slip, Large BBQ Grill, Second Refrigerator in Private Garage, Linens and Towels provided.

Recent Reviews About This Property

Vacation perfect

We had a group of 10, plenty of privacy and room for all of us. 15 min walking distance to duval street. Perfect location. Property Mgr was very accommodating with all of our needs. We will definitely stay here again in the future. Thank you Shel

Thunder B, 10/24/2016

Stunning Views & The Perfect Location!!

Shel was a wonderful host and we all enjoyed our time at the Commander's Sanctuary. The house was clean upon our arrival and the layout is VERY spacious. I would recommend this house to anyone. The location is perfect, right on the water, but a drive or 20 minute walk to Duval Street, so you don't have to deal with loud late night partying. You even get a boat slip with this rental! There is only one recommendation that I have, to make your stay better and that is, bring your own pillows. The pillows in the house are awful and uncomfortable, but that small detail is my only "complaint". I will be back Shel, and we look forward to our next vacation. Thank you for everything!


Margo B, 09/17/2016

Perfect place to stay! We will definitely be back

Spacious, Great Views, Great Location, The staff (Shel) made it very easy to feel at home.  His recommendations and knowledge of restaurants and activities definitely helped us enjoy our stay.  Looking forward to next year.

Russ K, 08/03/2016

Excellent Property right at the Marina

We enjoyed our stay at the Commander's Sanctuary in Key West. The property was nicely maintained, and our service from Shel was impeccable

Bryan L, 07/23/2016

Fantastic House

We rented both Admiral's Compound properties and were very pleased with both units. They are very clean, well maintained, and the staff at Last Key Realty was extremely helpful. Everything was as presented. The property is about a mile from Duval Street, but it was nice to be away from the crowds and it was just a short bike ride to get there. Highly recommend this property!

Mary M, 07/16/2016

Birthday Getaway

We rented this property for my husband's 40th birthday weekend. We traveled with 3 other couples and had an amazing time!! We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the view of water. Our flights down were delayed but when we landed in Key West we called the concierge and they had the kitchen stocked with snacks and beverages for us! We rented bikes on the first day which made it very easy to get around and we didn't mind being a little farther from Duval Street. I would highly recommend using this company for your Key West vacation!
Laura M from Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, 06/15/2016

perfect house just the right distance from Duval!

I stayed here with 12 of my girlfriends for my bachelorette trip. We stayed 4 days and were in paradise. It is so nice to have the private pool. The house has everything you need-even beach towels! Shel is such a helpful man!! We had several packages sent to the office before hand with goodies for the weekend and he was really kind about the entire process. I've been to key west before this trip and Im sure I will be back and I wouldn't stay anywhere else! HIGHLY recommended!

elizabeth s, 06/09/2016

Excellent, well maintained property.

This property was well maintained and very comfortable for four couples. Shel and his concierge service were excellent! If you want a boat, it will be right outside. Great fun. If you're in shape, a decent walk to Duval - but not too bad. Had a great time!

Martin B, 04/16/2016

The property was exactly as described online

Our stay at this property was wonderful and we would definitely rent it again. It's the perfect size for a larger party. There were 7 of us and we were very comfortable with plenty of space for all of us.

Shel from Last Key Rental went out of his way to make sure we were well taken care of and available to us for any needs we may have had.  Overall, this is a great house and we had a terrific time!


lisa B, 04/05/2016

Well appointed and upscale

We rented both condos for a long weekend. It slept 17 very comfortably with room to spare. The condo had everything we needed to relax after a full day of exploring Key West. Duval Street was a short cab ride away. The staff was friendly and flexible with our arrival time.

Bryan T, 03/16/2016

Beautiful House

Great house. Plenty of room. Located on the edge of Old Town, can bike everywhere.

Fred C, 02/27/2016

Great Property

We stayed at this property for a long weekend with 7 other couples to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. The houses, pools, and outdoor spaces were very clean and well-maintained. The houses were definitely spacious enough to accommodate our group. We hosted a brunch at the house with several other couples as well. Shel was very attentive and helpful. Hope to be back again soon!

Amy P, 02/19/2016

Great rental

This is a very comfortable, well located rental with an enjoyable water view and a pool.

Richard S, 02/10/2016

Sensational retreat in Key West!!

Not only did this fit the bill for our party of 10 but the amenities, views, size & cleanliness truly exceeded the expectations set by the listing. This is a gem in Key West close enough to everything and private enough to feel like you have finally made it...Terrific bang for buck in every way!

Shel was our guest service coordinator and he truly knows what he is doing. He was extremely friendly, patient and kind as half of our party had never been to the Key's, he laid everything out for us and made the trip all the better in every way! Thank you Shel, we will always contact you in the future for our Key West needs.


Kurt Y, 01/28/2016

Key vacation spot in Key West!

We stayed at this property for an extended family getaway during Xmas / New Year's 2015. The two houses offer a spectacular view of the bay and are walking distance into town - perfect length to walk off all the great food we cooked in the gourmet kitchen and barbecue grill downstairs next to the pool. Our group ranged in age from 5 years to 80 years old and suited all our needs. The property manager Shel was friendly and always available to answer all our questions. I highly recommend it!

Alison B, 12/27/2015

Great House! Highly Recommend!

I have stayed in several VRBOs. None of them turned out to be as nice as what the pictures depicted. This house was absolutely better than what we expected! Every aspect and Shel our point of contact was top notch. He told us where to eat, where to get groceries, best way to get around the island. Absolutely great!

Erika O, 12/09/2015

Excellent Key West Property

Our family rented chose this property for our visit to Key West to celebrate a milestone birthday. The property was exactly as described and SUPER clean. It was a perfect fit for our large family and accommodated us all very comfortably. We appreciated that basics like trash bags, laundry detergent, toilet paper...etc. were provided. The property manager, Shel, was in constant communication and ever-available. We could tell he was sincerely interested in ensuring that we had an excellent stay. We also received some great recommendations from the concierge, Victoria. From start to finish, a great experience. Recommend most highly!

Polly H, 11/19/2015

Shel you did it again! 2 for 2!

Shel, you did it again!!! Top notch service. Property was mint, A+ condition! Our fridge was stocked with everything we needed, you chauffeured us everywhere we had to be our first day to get us settled, and you checked in on us to make sure everything was just right. You are 2 for 2 in making sure our Last Key Realty experience was a 5 star one. Anyone who wants to do Florida right will get in touch with Shel and Last Key Realty if they want to have VIP treatment and an incredible time.

Thanks again!

excellent property for 4 couples and mooring


Patricia W, 10/28/2015

Commander's sanctuary

This is a perfect location for a large group to immediately feel at home. All amenities were up to date and we found it very easy to cook and barbecue there, spending much of our time outdoors on the deck or patio. The rooms were very clean, and appointed with modern furniture. Shel was very attentive to our needs, as the elevator was broken when we arrived, and he had it fixed in a matter of hours. Shel met us at the property at the appointed time and checked in on us to assure that we were having a good time. We also appreciated the list of available activities provided to us. We enjoyed browsing the shops downtown and loved Blue Heaven Restaurant for a perfect breakfast. I would highly recommend this property for a large group, keeping in mind that one of the bedrooms is a loft and has limited head room for reading in bed.

Janet S, 10/10/2015

Amazing Customer Service!

Communication at it's finest! Before arriving in Key West Shel answered my many questions quickly and thoroughly! Once we arrived, he went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. The house was perfect size for 18 adults, each in their own bed.

Jamie V, 09/20/2015

Great girls' trip, perfect location for us!

This was a first time visit to Key West for most of the 7 women in our group. I felt like I was flying a little blind as to where this rental was and whether it would work for our group....and work it did!!! We were met by Shel who went through all of  Key West POI's. He was so helpful with restaurant suggestions and just making us feel welcome. This place is not super close to the action of Key West, but we liked that. It was quiet and within biking distance to everything...which is how our group got around (even to the grocery store).  It was very clean and we truly had a great time!

Kate L, 09/16/2015

The house was awesome, really enjoyed the property

The entire process was so easy with Home Away. I found a few properties that could accommodate our party of 8 and had answers to my many questions on the first call. It isn't easy to make 8 adults happy about everything but this house fit the bill. It was nicely furnished with great amenities to include a private boat dock. 

We really enjoyed the location, the marina was very close and the waterways to our favorite destinations were easy to get to. 

Fishing and lobstering were plentiful and the threat of Erika steered away from us to enjoy a full week of sunshine, relaxation and family fun. 

I would highly recommend gong through Home Away for your getaway needs!


Linda F, 08/31/2015

Just Awesome

Beautiful home with so much room for each family member to truly enjoy! Has an awesome boat slip right in the marina was nice too. We love Key West and visit two to three times a year. We would definitely stay here again. The only thing I was not happy with is how much the kitchen was missing, if your going to be cooking this could pose an issue. We were left one kitchen towel for a family of six for 7 days... we went out and bought our own. Bathing towels now there was an abundant of! The home is just as beautiful as the view off every balcony. Highly recommend a stay at Commanders Sanctuary.


Brandi r, 08/03/2015

Very nice spot just a mile from Duval street

Very nice house with a quiet tranquil view of a harbor yet strategically right off a main street in Key West, just a mile from Duval street. Shel and his team met our special needs and gave us great advice on things to do. The elevator is great for luggage and older folks navigating the three floors plus garage level of this roomy house. Clean and well taken care of too. Our entourage of 11 never felt crowded.... The pool looked inviting but honestly we spent our water time at the beach or on the water.

Brian K, 07/19/2015

Flinchbaugh Stay 7-12 7-19 2015 Key West

We were pleased with the property.  Shel did a great job of Welcoming us to the property and attending you our needs during our stay. The only comments are the AC unit needs to be serviced as it froze up even staying within the guidelines. AC is crucial in Key West. I would recommend addition of a commercial ice machine and fish cutting table. We will return 2016.

John F, 07/12/2015

Great Place to Stay

We loved our stay in the Admiral's Compound. The houses were well maintained and clean. They were spacious enough to accommodate our large group and each couple had their own bathroom. The Admiral's Compound was next door to the Marina which was very convenient as we ventured out on chartered boats. Also it is next door to a great Thai/sushi restaurant. Shel was quite accommodating and attentive throughout our stay and made several great recommendations for restaurants and locations of stores. We all had a wonderful experience and hope we can return to Key West some day!

Owen T, 07/07/2015

Great home - perfect for large groups!

We held a family reunion for 14 people at the Admiral's Compound (9 bedrooms total). The home was very spacious and had many amenities. The property manager's service level was awesome and the concierge service helped us book several outings. I would highly recommend the property!

Alex M, 06/28/2015

The Commander's Sanctuary was perfect!!

This house was perfect for our group (4 couples) and close enough to the action. We enjoyed the plunge pool. We utilized a taxi group with vans that were easy to call. Shel set us up nicely and gave great recommendations for our stay!!

Tibby N, 06/24/2015

Awesome vacation Rental

We had a great time at the Commander's Sanctuary. Shel from Last Key Realty was great, as was everyone else we interacted with at Last Key. The house is quite large and was easily able to accommodate our party of 9. The house is very near Old Town Key West, but was in an area that was quite a bit quieter than other hotels that are closer to Duval Street. This was a positive in my opinion. Also, Last Key arranged bike rentals, a dolphin and snorkeling tour in addition to a trip to Dry Tortugas National Park for us. We had no issues whatsoever with anything Last Key arranged for our group. Our experience with Shel and Last Key Realty was outstanding from start to finish.

John & Denise I, 06/13/2015

Great property, great trip!

So very happy with this property. The house looked exactly as it did in the pictures. Shel, our property manager, couldn't have been nicer or more helpful - checking in with us to make sure we had everything we needed and offering dining/excursion suggestions. We would definitely recommend Last Key Realty and this property. Perfect location, beautiful property - couldn't have been better!

Christine C, 06/06/2015

Great place to stay

This was a wonderful property to vacation in. It was very well kept and in a great location. The manager was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely return.

Lori V, 05/31/2015

Paradise at its Finest

This property can't be beat! We had a group of 12 guys and everything, from the accommodations, to location, to interaction with Shel and the folks at LastKey was perfect. The house is big enough that even with a full house it never felt crowded and came stocked with all of the essentials so that we did not have to worry about side trips to the store. The kitchen is large with plenty of space for large groups to eat. The extra fridge in the garage was a nice bonus and the extra tank of propane for the grill made sure we had enough gas to cook all our meals outside. Outside was quiet and serene and the pool offered a great place to beat the heat.

As an operator, Shel is the finest. He communicated with us well in advance of our stay to offer his help with grocery shopping and making dining and bike rental reservations and stopped by the property to ensure we were settled in well. He offered great knowledge of off the beaten path places for us to try out that did not disappoint.

Location-wise, this house offered everything within a short walk. Duval is an easy bike ride or ~20min stroll through nice neighborhoods. Around the corner are numerous fishing charters and great local spots to grab a bite to eat.

Can't wait to come back!


Joe F, 05/21/2015


This was a beautiful house in a great location.  We had family for every bed, but never felt crowded. Shel was our go-to-guy for the house and he welcomed us with open arms. He made sure we had everything we needed and was very accommodating. We were close enough to town, but away from all the crowds and ongoing activity. The house was clean and modern and the location on the water was perfect. There was always a nice breeze. I happily recommend this property and Shel!

Anne P, 05/12/2015

5 Star!

Wouldn't stay anywhere else next time. Shel went way beyond the call to make our first trip to Key West perfect!

Andrew C, 05/03/2015

Very Relaxing Stay

Very pleased with the house and the hospitality we were treated with. No complaints here.

logan m, 04/30/2015


We stayed here for a birthday celebration. What a great time we had! The accommodations were terrific! Our group consisted of four couples. We loved the house. It was perfect for our trip. The area is quiet and peaceful. The house is very well maintained, and clean. It's a short walk or bike ride to Duval Street. Our host was Shel. He was very accomadating and a pleasure to work with. We will definitely come back!

Tom M, 04/22/2015

Great Vacation House

House was fantastic. Had plenty of room for the 7 of us staying there and garage/elevator for added bonus for storing and transporting things. Quiet area and peaceful. Will come back next year!

Ryan B, 04/12/2015

recommend it-

We enjoyed our stay in Key West and felt in very good hands with the oversight of Last Key resort and specifically Mr Segel. Mr Segel brought us over a deck of cards when we realized we didn’t have one in the house, he facilitated cleaning the pool and instructed us on hot spots to dine. He was there upon check in and check out and was an overall delight to work with when questions surfaced. Last Key Resort has a real asset in his employment and capabilities. Last Key Resort did an amazing job show casing the property and offering commendable concierge services. Thank you all for a wonderful experience.

scot M, 03/28/2015


Very clean, very nice. Great place to stay and close to Duval Street. Would stay there again...Shel did a great job.

Robert V, 03/19/2015

Truly amazing place for a vacation!

The house was immaculate and was perfect for our large group. The kitchen was big and all the new appliances made cooking easy. The pool was great and it was nice to have the option to have it heated when the nights got a little cooler. The house was about a mile away from Duval St, which was close enough to walk and far enough away that you didn't feel as if you were in the middle of spring break. I cannot say enough great things about this great rental!

Shane H, 03/11/2015


The unit was great and served us well. Shel was very helpful in helping us get settled and making recommendations.

frank t, 12/22/2014

A perfect family get-away!

The apartment was perfect for our group of nine! It was clean and comfortable and had many of the comforts of home. Shel was very helpful and gave us great restaurant recommendations. He was very attentive to our needs and requests and made sure we had everything we needed for an amazing week in Key West.

Heather Q, 11/22/2014

5-star Accommodations and a 5-star host!

From the gorgeous lodging, to the amazing service we could not have experienced a better stay in Key West. Simply breathtaking views from our 3-story balcony. Shel was FANTASTIC!!! Attentive to our every need, stocking our place with requested food, helping us with directions, fixing an A/C issue in an instant and swaping our beds for kings, every request was met to our satisfaction. There is NO chance we would stay anywhere else! Thank you again for the amazing help Shel, we will be seeing you again soon!

We enjoyed staying here so much. The house was clean, spacious and very nice. Location was great, very close to all of the action and the best part was the water view from the back. Shel was amazing in giving us information on fun stuff, places to eat etc. Very accomodating! Would absolutely recommend this to anyone!! GREAT VACATION!!

A great place to celebrate my birthday

We came down with a group of friends to celebrate a big birthday at this location. It was everything that we had hoped it would be from the pictures-very clean and we made it our home for the next few days.

Shel Segel couldn't have been a nicer guy and met us all at the house to show us around and give his personal recommendations on things to do/places to see and where to eat. He also gave us a tour and answered questions.

Waking up with this view in the morning was a great way to start our day. We also very much enjoyed hanging by the pool and out on the dock. It was an easy cab ride over to Duval Street where we spent the rest of our time.

Excellent property! Clean, inviting, comfortable, and quiet. Shel from LastKey was fantastic. He greeted us on arrival and stopped by a couple of times (calling ahead of course) to make sure we had all we needed. He recommended some fabulous restaurants and was always available for advice and directions. Great Vacation in Key West!

Unbelievable serenity and comfort.

Incredible place to relax and breath! If you like peace and quiet away from the crowds, this is the place to stay. Clean, well decorated and everything you need for your island get away. I recommend this property to everyone. Shel was our host from LastKey and he is fantastic. He assures you are very comfortable and knows Key West better than anyone except for the real conchs (the ones in the shells I mean). He directed us to some fantastic restaurants. We are always looking for the best food and drinks. The kitchen was very well equipped. We cooked several meals there for six adults.  The pool was refreshing and the back patio is serene and comfortable. Don't hesitate to rent this place. It is well worth it!

Very roomy, well maintained rental home

This townhome is beautiful, well laid out, and in a great location. The home had everything we needed, and was incredibly enjoyable to stay at withy multiple families.  Shel (with Last Key Rentals) of course, was warm and attentive to our needs. We CANNOT WAIT to return!

Amanda , 09/18/2014

A beautiful home convenient location!

Very clean home and well stocked with everything you need! My only negatives would be the mattresses were not comfortable in master and bedroom next to master. The home has a dock which was great for us, as we arrived by boat and conveniently docked at he house! The house is very close to old key west!! We rented bikes and biked everywhere! Shel was very welcoming and available if we needed anything!

Comfortable waterfront location in Key West

We found the Commander's Sanctuary to be a perfect place for 12 members of our family to comfortably stay and enjoy our Key West vacation. The dock easily accommodated our 30' boat and the location at Garrison Bight made for quick access to the open ocean for our excursions. Conveniently, Garrison Bight marina is literally next door for fuel, ice and bait. As advertised, the townhouse is expansive, clean, modern and well-appointed. Shel, the guest manager, was attentive and responsive to our needs from the moment we booked through the day we checked out (and even afterwards, helping to locate and return a child's iPad errantly left behind!) Overall, a beautiful property in close proximity to Old Town and the open water. Just what we were looking for! Hope to return for another stay soon!

Paul R, 07/20/2014

Great company, great property!

Property was wonderfully maintained, great location, house slept 10 very comfortably. Shel and the folks at Last Key Realty made everything easy and convenient for us, couldn't have been a better trip. Would recommend going through Last Key for all your rental needs!

Greg W, 07/10/2014

Perfect vacation!

The house is the perfect getaway for a Key West vacation. The location is ideal - close enough to be a comfortable bike ride or short drive to the action in Old Town, but far enough to stay away from the fray. My family stayed there for a birthday celebration and the set up for the house was so comfortable for everyone. This place is perfect and Shel is a wonderful host. The house is very clean, comfortable and well-stocked with everything you need. Take his advice on where to eat if you decide to go out - his suggestions were delicious. But the full kitchen and grill let us enjoy Key West without dealing with the crowded restaurants on some nights. I can't wait to go back!

Loan L, 07/02/2014

Beautiful home on the water

The Commander's Sanctuary was exactly what my family was looking for. Shel greeted us on our arrival and gave us a very thorough tour of the home as well as the surrounding area. The location was perfect- just far enough away from the main part of town where it was private and quiet, but close enough for easy access to Duval St. Our family was extremely impressed with the quality of the home and the amount of space we (12 adults) had! The outdoor space was a little small for all of us to fit, but we made it work! Having a grill and a pool (smaller than your normal pool) made it easy to spend time outside. The beds were comfortable and bathrooms were clean and beautiful. I would highly recommend this place, or any other property offered by Shel's company, for any family vacation.

Shehzad M, 06/26/2014

Beautiful property, great location!

Perfect property and location for a visit to Key West. Close enough to walk to everything on Duval Street but far enough to give you privacy. Plenty of room in this home including a great back patio/pool area to relax and grill out. Really glad we picked this home because I can't imagine a better place to stay in Key West.

Alex O, 06/11/2014

Incredible Property with great views

My experience at the Commander's Sanctuary @ Paradise Harbor could not have been better. Upon arrival, Shell was more then helpful in showing us around the house and giving us recommendations for restaurants. The location was perfect for our group, being close to a main road that was just a short ride/walk away from everywhere we needed to go. The house is perfect especially for a larger group with a mix of bedroom configurations and the pull out couch. The elevator and garage was an added touch to the incredibly maintained property. Upon arrival, we had an issue with the temperature of the pool that was taken care of within an hour. I would more then recommend this property to a friend or relative and will be renting from Last Key in the future.

Pike_Koenig May 2014 Vacation Commanders Sanctuary

Shel was amazing. He was present and attentive and made great local recommendations. We loved Sandy's cuban sandwiches and Hogfish - both local places Shel recommended. His customer service was a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. The property was clean, however we did have several maintenance issues (broken dining chairs, broken dishwasher, inadequate window coverings). Shel addressed each of the issues as expediently as possible.

Overall rating for Shel is a 10, the property was as described, but we were disappointed that maintenance was required at this pricepoint and would give the property itself an 8.


Glenn P, 05/10/2014

Absolutely beautiful!

Commander's Sanctuary was perfect for our party of eight, and more beautiful than photos. Shel, with Last Key Realty, was a great "host", providing great customer service. The property was clean, accommodating, and exceeded expectations. We would recommend this beautiful home to friends and family and are looking forward to our next trip to Key West.


Pati S, 05/05/2014

Beautiful Property, Close to Everything!

The property is the perfect size for larger groups, whether it is couples or for a group of friends. The first impression of the property when you walk in, is how nice the accommodations are. The rooms are very nice with comfortable beds. The elevator is very helpful to get luggage and whatever else you need to get up and down while there. The backyard is perfect for relaxing in the pool or laying in the sun. The kitchen has everything you need to stay in and cook. It was particularly helpful for us in the mornings for breakfast. Shel was extremely helpful. He met us at the property just as we arrived into town. He gave us a great tour of the house, as well as some great suggestions for food and things to do while we were in Key West. 

I would recommend this property for a few reasons:

1. Great location.  Central between old and new town.

2. Great property manager - Shel.  Very helpful and knowledgeable.

3. Beautiful home - Very comfortable. Everything you need.


Nathan C, 04/30/2014

beautiful home, perfect location

I was so pleased to have rented this home. So much space and a view which belongs in an painting. The listing is spot on about proximity to sites such as Duval street, bars and shops/restaurants. You could walk it, we did it a couple of nights took about 15 minutes, but cabs are all over the island and they are pretty reasonable. 

The home was clean when we arrived very well kept. Shel the representative from Last Key is one of the nicest people I have ever met.  He checked in on us throughout the weekend and made sure that we were comfortable. 

I highly recommend this home to anyone visiting Key West, price is very reasonable for such a large home located on the water.


vishal p, 04/24/2014

Awesome Vacation Home!

Absolutely wonderful!  So much in fact that we recently bought a home in Key West and we will Last Key realty and Shel manage our rental home! Shel is great, laid back and very professional. Staying at their rentals makes you fell like you are home away from home, no hassle, easy going and are there to help you have the best vacation possible! Thanks again Shel and everyone at Last Key Realty!

Best Stay in Key West EVER!!

This house over exceeded our expectations! We could walk everywhere we wanted to go and the time spent in the house was very relaxing. Being right on the water, there was a consistent breeze the entire day and night. Very relaxing!!! I would stay here again and again and again!!!

Ray G, 04/10/2014

Perfect for our stay!

The house was clean, spacious and perfect for the whole family to stay in while we were celebrating our wedding. Shel was responsive and helpful and helped with everything we needed. It was just what we were hoping for. Thanks!

Matthew K, 03/30/2014

Bachelorette Bash- We LOVED the house

Where do I even begin with my review of this property? First and foremost, the house is EXACTLY as depicted in the pictures, potentially even better. We were told the house comfortably fit 10-12 and this is extremely accurate. The rooms were insanely spacious allowing room for us to all gather and hang out in the common areas. The elevator was not working when we arrived and was IMMEDIATELY fixed to provide us with comfort as we moved our stuff in. The house had a gorgeous dock where we layed out and lived in the sun. Ample parking, deck space, and although the pool is small it was warm and fun at night! I cant even really describe how impressed myself (and my group) was with the house.

Next, the house is super close to Duval and all the fun key west stuff. The taxis cost 4 pp and it was all walkable as well. Shel; and the other individuals at Last Key were super helpful- assisting me in booking dinner reservations, group activities, and just answering all my insane questions about beach towels and forks! Shel stopped by as we arrived, checked in throughout the weekend to see if we were enjoying ourselves and was just all around amazing and helpful. It was clear he was there to assist us with whatever we needed.

Again, I can't say enough how happy I am with the rental. everything was exactly as described, payment was easy and as assured, and it was just an all around blast!!!!!!!! Thankyou Shel and Last Key.


Arielle B, 03/27/2014

Fantastic Find!!!

We had two families stay with a total of 10 people (4 adults, 3 teens, 2 tweens, and 1 child) and had plenty of space for everyone. House was clean and ready for us when we arrived and Shel was a great resource for anything we wanted to know. For us, the location (just a few blocks away from Duval) was perfect since we didn't want to be right in the middle of everything yet grocery store was maybe 5 min away. Dock provided perfect access for fishing and boating. Recommend a car and/or bike when renting this property. Pool area was perfect for our younger child and tweens (not so much for the rest of us but this size/type of pool appears to be common here). We would return if have opportunity and would recommend property to others.

Key "BEST" vacation ever!

If you’re traveling to Key West, do yourself a favor and book through Last Key Realty, specifically with Shel Segal and his team.

I am always weary to use a travel assistance of any kind – mainly because I am a control freak. For my bachelorette party, I relinquished all control and put it in the hands of Shel Segal and his team at Last Key Realty. THANK goodness I did because it was the best, and most seamless vacation I have ever taken.

From beginning to end, I felt we had a personal vacation concierge in Shel. Of course, I called many times prior to ensure everything would be taken care of - from bike rentals and stocking the fridge prior to arrival, to what we should do/where we should eat and what we definitely should not miss while visiting Key West. The place was immaculate – the photos are great but do NOT do it justice. Everything was super-clean and the place was much larger than I could have imagined. The pool (nice and warm) and patio was shaded AND sunny so everyone could enjoy.

Shel greeted us upon arrival and went through all of the things we needed to know about the rental, and the island. He had done some grocery shopping for us so the place was stocked with all the necessities which was an extra perk. FYI: there were 13 of us – a pretty large group to wrangle. We all rented bikes through Shel’s team which served as our transpiration for the week. Bike rental was seamless – they delivered and picked up from the house with no problems.

Shel and his team were professional, helpful and kind. When we were leaving, he met us at the house, helped carry our bags out and was flexible with us heading out for breakfast and leaving our bags in the unit until our flight. I have nothing but wonderful things to say and would NEVER stay anywhere else when coming back to visit Key West. Thank you for making our trip one of the best ever!!


Carla T, 03/06/2014

Very good experience

Clean and well maintained. Last Key Realty kept in contact with me both before and during my stay, which was a nice touch. Easy walk to Duval and other attractions.

Ben T, 02/25/2014

Fabulous Getaway

We had a wonderful time staying at The Commander's Sanctuary @ Paradise Harbor. We were several families that ended up renting a few homes together. It worked out very well. We rented bikes and were able to bike to most everything we wanted to experience in Key West! The house was very clean and well maintained. The amenities were very nice although the pool area was a bit small and a little disappointing as it wasn't large enough for our large group to comfortable hang out there. Instead we headed to the beach which was just fine with us. The best thing about the whole trip was Shel - the property manager. He took such good care of us. Reviewing how everything worked in the home, helping us with any issues we had and giving us a rundown of what to do and see in Key West including some excellent restaurant recommendations! His service was top notch and because of him - we would definitely recommend this lovely home to other travelers!

Mary M, 02/15/2014

Sanctuary Indeed

Wow! Could not have asked for a better stay. We were in town for the RAGNAR relay, and were--first of all--so pleased to find a property that could accommodate a non-seven day stay. But that was just the icing on the cake. The property didn't look as good as it did in the pictures, IT LOOKED BETTER! This is rare thing (in my experience) in the property rental business. My team joked, upon seeing the pictures, that the only thing that could have made the property more ritzy (yet still affordable) would be an elevator. And what do you know...there was one. Everything was super clean and well maintained and we felt (in only a small amount of time) that we'd actually found a home away from home.

Ah, but here's the truly great thing. A great property only goes as far as the management allows it to. We couldn't have ask for a more gracious host that our property manager Shel Segel. Shel was warm and friendly from the get go and, what's more, he was incredibly accommodating. When it was clear that we were going to be arriving later than we problem. Shel was flexible. When it was clear that we had to check out several hours before our planes were to problem. Shel helped us find a place to store our luggage (not to mention a lunch recommendation to help us spend our final couple of hours in Key West).

To sum up...the property and the host were both AMAZING. As often happens on a visit to Key West (this being our second), by the end of our trip, we had no desire to leave. The Commander's Sanctuary and Shel both went a long way to making us feel that way. Thanks!

Excellent accommodation.. spectaculer sunrises

As we were 11 adults staying here, this property was beautiful and very spacious. We all loved the views of the marina and the spectacular sunrises.  Shel was phenominal, service superb. We had 2 minor issues which he rectified immediately. We were happy not to be so close to all the action. We all would love to return to this location again sometime.

It was the best birthday celebration I could have had with great friends and location.

Magnificent doesn't even begin to describe it!

This waterfront home really is a true gem!  More than enough room for 11 of us to sleep comfortably and lounge around when not out and about. The heated pool was a nice touch and being able to relax in the backyard and stroll on the pier way nice. The living spaces were superbly arranged for all of us to enjoy watching the game together. Washer/dryer a nice touch.  Great location close walk to alot of places and great Thai place around the corner!

Well worth the price! (very affordable also)! Thanks again =)


Andrew M, 01/30/2014

Paradise - Truly an amazing place to stay!!!

This home is truly amazing!! It is definitely paradise!! Its was spotless from top to bottom. Absolutely beautiful inside and out. This by far was the best vacation my family and I have ever had! Sitting on the porch in the morning having coffee watching the sun rise over the water was just breath taken. Shel from Last Key Realty was so helpful with all of our questions and needs. He does his job very well and is a wonderful guy!! We are all ready planning our trip for next year.

Scott B, 01/04/2014

The property was absolutely perfect!

The property was spacious, immaculate and comfy. It was in the perfect location away from the main drag yet close enough! We loved the little pool.

Shel! What can we say - so welcoming and warm and professional. We wanted to take him home with us but we know he is where he belongs.

We wouldn't hesitate to return and to recommend this property and Last Key Realty. I want to come back!

Nice big house in a convenient location

We had a good family vacation at this house.

1. Elevator is a big bonus... for elderly people. Turned out to be very useful for our group to traverse through all four levels.

2. Highly accessible - Roadway, Waterway and Walkway... We did not use the boat dock, but must be very convenient for the human "amphibians"... For the avid walkers/runners, historic streets are couple of blocks away... You can make excellent jogging circuits.

3. Great Service and Amenities - Everything was working perfectly well. Shel responded to calls diligently. Checked on us a couple of times to ensure all is well.

4. Price points - As greedy as any one can be.... Felt the price to be tad higher, but probably because we could not use all the "features" of this transient rental.


Rachel R, 12/22/2013

Great Property. Great Value.

The property was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The kitchen was modern, the gas grill was clean and worked, the pool was clean. Very much a turn-key operation. If I had to search for a complaint it was that while on the water the view wasn't much to write about.

The location was very convenient but a solid 20-25 minute walk to the old town area. But taxis are plentiful and inexpensive. And actually getting away from all the people was welcome.

To top it all off, the property manager is the guy name Shel Segal. He was top notch. If you had a question about anything you just shoot Shel a note and he responds in no time. He's like Siri but with a personality. At a bar and need a recommendation about another...see what Shel says. Need a good restuarant...send Shel a text. The guy is wired. I'm not going back to Key West without first checking in with Shel. 

Oh, and the weather was great.


Brian M, 11/22/2013

Excellent house and service

Very clean, spacious property. Pool, grill, new, water access and close to downtown. For large groups there are other houses in the complex as well. Shel from Last Key Realty was awesome. He gave us a tour of the property when we arrived, had the place stocked with groceries and met up with us on check-out day to make sure everything went well. Book it!
