"Perfect place to enjoy paradise! My friends and I were ecstatic to have found such a perfect place to stay for our vacation and appreciated the quick responses and thorough communication prior to our arrival. When we arrived, we were greeted by the property manager who gave us a quick tour and answered any questions we had. The pictures are very accurate and the home is just as delightful as it looks. It was clean, thoroughly stocked with basic items (towels, dishes, toilet paper, etc) and was a perfect size for the 6 of us. We weren't cramped and there was enough seating indoor and out for everyone. The private patio and hot tub were enjoyed the whole week. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone who wants to enjoy all Key West has to offer while being in a quieter part of the neighborhood. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and are already discussing future visits!!" -Heather R. 03/16


This colorful apartment is all you'll need for your stress-free stay in the Conch Republic. "The Mellow Macaw" is located right in Old Town near the famous Southernmost Point of the United States, two blocks from the Southernmost Beach, and just steps from Upper Duval Street. You couldn't be any closer to the nightlife and attractions of downtown (La Te Da and Banana Cafe are a block away, the Hemingway House is just down the street), and yet this tropical two bedroom retreat is tucked around the side of an Old Town home with its own private patio and spa. You won't need a car, but should you decide to bring one you will have a private off-street parking space.


Through a quaint gate off Virginia Street, pass around a tall tropical tree and follow the path along to your private entryway. Through your hidden gate you'll be in a completely fenced private outdoor porch area with a full outdoor dining area and a private, heat-optional spa. "The Mellow Macaw" is equipped with comfortable patio furniture sitting under a big shady umbrella, and a gas grill for preparing outdoor meals and enjoying happy hour just a quick walk to the attractions that await you on Duval Street.


Opening the front door of "The Mellow Macaw" you'll find a cozy, island-inspired home with an open living plan. As you enter the apartment, you'll be greeted with a brightly colored and comfortable sectional sofa in front of a large flat screen TV. The sectional pulls out to a Queen sized bed to sleep 2 extra guests.


Beside the living area, the open kitchen is fully equipped with all the tools you'll need to whip up a meal at home. The kitchen is also equipped with an electric stove, oven, and a dishwasher for easy clean up after meals. There's even a small sound system to set the mood while having dinner.


The master bedroom has a King-sized bed, full closet, overhead fan, and flat screen TV. The master bedroom has a door that opens up to another private patio overlooking Virginia & Whitehead Streets, perfect for some people watching with a morning cup of coffee or an evening cocktail. The second bedroom also has a Queen-sized bed, large armoire, and a television. The bathroom is centrally located, with a glass shower.


Washer & Dryer, Central Heat and A/C, Ceiling Fans, Private Gated & Lushly Landscaped Outdoor Patio with Private Heat-Optional Spa, Propane Grill, LCD Flat Screens, Cable TV, Gourmet Kitchen, Linens and Towels provided. Interim housekeeping provided upon request. Wireless high-speed Internet access included. This property will accommodate up to 6 adults.


Add the rental of "Suzy's Parrot Perch", the 2 bedroom apartment upstairs from "The Mellow Macaw", to create a total of 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a private deck with a spa, and off-street parking.

Recent Reviews About This Property

Home Away from Home

If you are looking for a cozy place to just found it! This 2bd, 1 ba is perfect for a small family or two couples. We had 5 guests (two adults in one room, single in the other and two children on the pull out sofa). Fully stocked kitchen with every thing you need to make meals at home if you like. We made breakfast and dinner most days and enjoyed eating out on the deck. Hot tub was amazing in the evenings to relax. I cannot say enough about Amanda. She was more than amazing. My daughter was celebrating her 13th birthday and when we arrived there were cupcakes and a key lime pie waiting for us along with a big Happy Birthday balloon and super cute koozies with our names on them! The OJ and champagne were also a happy surprise for the adults in our group and made fantastic mimosas at breakfast! Location was also perfect. Just a quick walk to the southernmost point and to Duval street. There is a Duval Loop bus stop close to the house and makes for easy access to FREE transportation. This house really is amazing and will make your stay in Key West just perfect! Enjoy!

Milton E, 06/30/2018

Charming Condo

When we arrived we were greeting by our host Amanda who gave us a quick tour and answered any questions we had. The unit was clean and stocked with all the essentials. The private patio and hot tub were a welcome addition. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and would recommend this until to others looking for a charming place to stay while in Key West.

Damon C, 06/07/2018

Our Stay at The Mellow Macaw


Great place to stay!


Ashley S, 05/09/2018

Spring Break 2018

We loved spending our spring break in Key West. Amanda was amazing, leaving lots of beverages for happy hour and San Pelligrino water for our stay. We enjoyed the private deck and being able to walk to all the restaurants and Mallory Square. Mellow Macaw and Amanda at Last Key Resort were amazing. We would definitely stay here again.

Gina W, 03/26/2018

Lovely stay at The Mellow Macaw

This is a lovely, compact, wonderfully located place to stay in Key West. It's expertly managed--Last Key has one of the best communication setups I've ever encountered in Airbnb--and you couldn't ask for a better location. The beds and all the linens are super comfy and the lovely personal touches are wonderful. I recommend it highly. There are two things travelers should be aware of neither of which have anything to do with Last Key. The first is that Key West has lots of roosters and we were awakened each morning at 5:30 by the neighborhood poultry. Second, the Mellow Macaw is a very small space and the only bathroom is in the middle of it. If you're someone who needs privacy to feel comfortable, this spot might be too small for you.

Dabney G, 03/23/2018

Great Spot

Great spot, Right in the heart of the keys. Apartment was very clean, stocked with delicious welcoming snacks/drinks, extra bath/beach towels, washer dryer, efficient a/c & two binders filled with information on the apartment & the area.

Matthew D, 03/15/2018

Great house! Perfect to have room for a toddler and close to all of our events

We had several different contacts at Last Key and all were very responsive to any questions we had before and during our stay. Highly recommend!

Eleanor O, 03/02/2018

Awesome place!

We had a great experience at The Mellow Macaw. Amanda was incredible - met us in person when we arrived, had cold beverages stocked in the fridge, AND a key lime pie waiting! Very clean, well appointed kitchen with anything you would need, and even had beach towels available. Would definitely go back.

Mellow Macaw Key West Rental

Stayed in the Mellow Macaw. Great for two couples - walk or bike to everywhere in Key West. Outdoor deck and hot tub were great perks. Amanda at Last Key Realty was awesome!

Peter M, 01/20/2018

The Mellow Macaw is wonderful!

The Mellow Macaw is a wonderful place to stay while in Key West! A few weeks before our arrival, the guest services coordinator, Amanda, contacted us, introducing herself, and giving a list of services they provided. Amanda kept in touch almost daily trying to make our stay perfect. Well it worked! She met us at the front door when we got there ! She even did our grocery shopping and had our refrigerator stocked when we arrived! While we were in Key West one of our friends turned 40. Amanda had very thoughtful treats and surprises at the house when we arrived. We travel all the time and everywhere and this was the best customer service we've ever received! The house was perfect size for four of us, extremely clean, and stocked with supplies that would be needed for the five nights we were there. We rented scooters for the week allowing us to get around town with ease. Although, the Mellow Macaw is close enough to the hotspots we were able to walk most nights. The backyard area is cute and the hot tub was ready to go when we got there. We go to Key West every year for the offshore power boat races and will book this house again in a second! Highly recommended!

Christy B, 11/09/2017

Was a perfect getaway

Property well appointed. And Amanda the guest service coordinator couldn't do enough for us. She met us with flowers, chocolate covered strawberries, key lime pie, champagne and orange juice. She also printed and delivered our boarding passes. Have never rented a property that made me feel like a VIP. Would recommend this property, very well decorated, clean, and the hot tub great!!!

Sandra M, 11/03/2017

Perfect Getaway

We could not have had a more perfect getaway at the Mellow Macaw. Amanda the guest service coordinator made us feel like VIP's. She met us at the house and instructed about the house. Left us flowers, a balloon, key lime pie, champagne and orange juice, for us to celebrate our anniversary. We have rented many vacation homes through HomeAway, and have never been treated so special. The house was well appointed and clean. Located close to all of the things you would want to do. We would recommend this home for a Key West vacation. I know I will stay there again when I return.
Sandra & Keith M from Trappe, 11/03/2017

Perfect Getaway!

After surviving Hurricane Harvey in Houston, we were anxious to get away to Key West for our first visit to the island. Communication prior to our arrival was excellent and only got better when we were met by our host, Shel. He greeted us upon arrival and could not have been nicer! He gave us excellent recommendations on where to go, especially places that the locals enjoy. We had one of the best meals we could remember based on his suggestion. The house has everything you need and the location is perfect. Close to everything but quiet. Definitely recommend and we cannot wait to return.
Kasandra L from Houston, TX, 09/01/2017

Celebrated 50 years in style

Beautiful, updated and well maintained. Quiet part of town. Cottage was clean and linens were fresh. We rented this and the cottage upstairs and it worked great for 4 couples. Did not use the hot tub, we were hot enough already walking around. Love Key West, have been there numerous times and this place was wonderful. Well stocked with things I was not expecting. Highly recommended.

Wendy G, 07/26/2017

Clean, cozy and well-equipped!

The Mellow Macaw was perfect for our stay! We were a group of 5 friends reuniting from college. The kitchen had all the basic supplies we needed when we decided to grill our first night. The hot tub on the deck was also a nice addition for the night we decided to stay in. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels in the bathroom for use throughout the week coming back and forth from our beach days. Everything was super clean and the house got great morning light. It was the perfect location to Duval but tucked away enough that it felt like a nice separation from the rest of the town. Caryn was really great at coordinating our arrival and departures, even when we got stuck in traffic coming in and fell two hours behind as planned. We would definitely come back and had an amazing stay!

Aaron B, 05/26/2017

Amazing property and the staff from Last Key Realty

We were greated with a 40th Birthday celebration and the keys to our house for 5 days. Perfect location, perfect home...we will be back!!

Jessica R, 05/02/2017

I want to live at the Mellow Macaw!

We had such a great time and the Mellow Macaw was an absolutely perfect choice for our stay (we had some first timers to Key West that were blown away). The location, patio, and overall vibe of the condo was fantastic. Perfect jumping off point for beginning the Duval Crawl! Extra special thanks for the Key West birthday beer!

Greg B, 04/25/2017

The Mellow Macaw was absolutely perfect for all of our needs

My girlfriend and I were joined by two friends travelling from London and we had made the booking rather last minute and chose it based on the photos and the great value. We could not have been more pleased. There was every home comfort we could have wished for and thanks to Caryn the fridge was nicely stocked with the few items we had requested upon arrival. The highlights were the hot tub, the comfy beds and the delicious welcome key lime pie! We were close to a fantastic array of bars, restaurants, breakfast spots, Hemmingway attractions (Hemmingway House is highly recommended) and lovely beaches and beachside activities. Loui's Backyard was just beautiful and the food was delicious. Do give it a try! Thanks Alex and an extra BIG thank you to lovely Caryn for all her fabulous help and tips. Book and enjoy!

Beau B, 04/03/2017

Perfect space for 4 people!

Big bedrooms, comfortable bathroom, excellent living and outdoor space with patio table, grill, and hot tub. Location is great just one block off of Duval, and south enough to be quiet but still a comfortable walk to the nightlife. Host Caryn was great and accommodating. Only negative was being able to hear our neighbors in their rental, but that was minimal. Will definitely inquire about the Mellow Macaw on our next visit!!

Dan T, 03/15/2017

Response from Last Key Realty:

While we love to receive 5 star reviews, it is disappointing to read this guest was experiencing trouble with neighboring vacationers during their long awaited stay.  We make it our priority to take care of any and everything we can for a guest while you are in residence - even dealing with troublesome neighbors!  Should any future guest have an issue with noise or other neighbor-related problem we encourage you to call your Guest Services Coordinator and let us handle it for you - so you can go back to enjoying your vacation!

Small but perfectly located 1 block off duval st

Excellent property, perfect location

Tim S, 03/01/2017


This is a wonderful, delightful little home. Beautifully decorated; very clean, well appointed, cozy place....Great location, central to everything, yet peaceful. Outdoor area lovely, relaxing (new hot tub), complete with resident cats "Shoes", and an unnamed little lady. It was perfect for our ladies' weekend, sleeping 5 of us nicely. Caryn was prompt in meeting us, and as warm & friendly as other reviews said. Concierge Phillip was such a help in planning, and always just a phonecall away. Every expectation was exceeded. Can't wait to go back!

Robin C, 02/21/2017

Perfect house for four people! Very clean and up to date!

The evenings were chilly, we enjoyed the hot tub! It was the perfect size for four people, and clean clean clean! We will be returning

Location Location Location

This was our first trip to Key West. The location of the rental was wonderful. Just a block off of Duval and far enough away from the main intersections for calm and peace. The rental was nicely equipped and had all the necessary accouterments. We were looking forward to using the Jacuzzi but it was dirty and we did not use it. There was a lack of sound proofing between the units. Fortunately, we only had a neighbor for one night. But on that night we could hear everything through the walls. Would we stay there again? Probably so the location just can't be beat.

Darren L, 09/03/2016

Response from Last Key Realty:

We were so disappointed to receive this review regarding the jacuzzi after this guest departed. We do everything we can to resolve guest issues with guests in residence, so you can enjoy your stay thoroughly while you are here. That being said, after receiving this review a brand new spa was purchased for this home and is serviced weekly. We hope these guests will return for another opportunity to enjoy the brand new jacuzzi at The Mellow Macaw, and encourage any future guests to notify us while in residence if there is absolutely anything we can do to improve your stay.


Cosy, super comfortable, modern island-style property in the heart of Key West!

This was a perfectly comfortable vacation home for our family of three. The rooms were warmly decorated in island style which truly added to the "get-away" feel. The apartment was very clean and supplied well. The agent, Caryn, welcomed us and immediately made us feel at home. Caryn along with the conceierge provided us with great recommendations based on our interests and helped make our stay more enjoyable. This was our second visit to Key West but if we return anytime soon, Last Key Realty will be the first place I will look for our accommodations!

Vivian M, 08/10/2016

Very nice little place to stay

We enjoyed staying at the Mellow Macaw very much.

It had everything we needed to make it a comfortable stay.

Close to everything to see.

We would recommend.


Kathy H, 07/26/2016

This was my second stay in 2 years.

I think the Mellow Macaw has become my "go to" lodging during Tarpon season. Conveniently located to everything, parking slot, great patio, comfortable beds, Caryn is the best! You'll love it!

Blain J, 05/28/2016

A perfect home away from home!

The Mellow Macaw was a perfect place for my family and I to stay for a week while vacationing in Key West. Located a block off of Duval Street, and only a mile away from Mallory Square, it was the perfect location to leave the car alone and bike everywhere! The photos do show exactly what to expect when you arrive. The Mellow Macaw exceeded our expectations. It's cozy, and a great place to relax after a day out. The beds were very comfortable, and there were more pillows, linens, and towels than what you'll ever need. All appliances worked great, the A/C was cold, and the place was very clean. The outside patio is secure, and a wonderful place to spend a few hours with friends. The Jacuzzi was relaxing and clean, too. And there's even a sweet black and white cat that spends some time there too. My girls loved seeing him out there. All of these things add up to a great "home away from home" experience. I'll be back....!

Ed F, 05/10/2016

Gorgeous spot for our girls trip!

The Mellow Macaw was the perfect location for our girls trip. Just a block from Duval, the condo was very centrally located and we were able to walk to everything. The interior was lovely, just as pictured, and the patio was the best spot for our morning coffee. The guest services coordinator, was very attentive and easy to get in contact with. She provided wonderful recommendations for local attractions and was able to answer all of our questions. Overall, our stay here definitely highlighted an already wonderful vacation!

Megan W, 04/15/2016

My friends and I were ecstatic to have found such a perfect place to stay for our vacation and appreciated the quick responses and thorough communication prior to our arrival.

We enjoyed our stay tremendously and are already discussing future visits!!


Heather R, 03/18/2016

Great Place

Loved the house and the patio! Only a block off a Duval, you can walk or bike to the other end of Duval where most of the larger more known bars are. I would recommend getting bikes. The only drawback was we had enough people so we had to use the pull out couch bed and it wasn't very comfortable. Other than that, loved the property and would stay there again!

Kollin Y, 03/17/2016

Perfect Place in Key West

Great little apartment on the bottom floor. Very clean and the perfect size for three people. Beds were very comfortable and we loved the deck (with cute little kitty) and hot tub! Location was perfect to bike to the beach (Fort Zachary and Smathers) and walk to Duvall St, Hemingway House and Mallory Square. The owner was good in responding to our questions prior to our vacation and while staying there. The concierge service was a nice little bonus as they booked our bike rentals. Would definitely recommend this place to friends!

Bobbie C, 03/02/2016

Great Location

Loved the house and the location. Had everything we needed - very nicely maintained and well stocked.

Only negative was the hot tub. Water was cloudy and not hot enough. Needs to be Cleaned and maintained.


June C, 12/02/2015

Response from Last Key Realty:

 We are always appreciative of guest feedback, but particularly hope to receive the feedback while our guests are in residence so we can resolve the issues during their stay. Since this guest stay in December of 2015 the spa has been replaced with a new one and is serviced weekly. We hope to treat future guests to a lovely hot tub/jacuzzi experience, and if there is ever an issue while in residence we highly encourage guests to let us know as soon as possible so we may resolve during their stay rather than acting after departure. Please inquire with us for more details on the new spa and other upgrades since December 2015.




Great stay!

My wife & I stayed at The Mellow Macaw in early October. We found the condo just as described, bright, well maintained and surgical suite clean. It was steamy outside but the AC & ceiling fans worked well, keeping things cool. The location is on the quieter side of town, 1 block from Duval & within easy walking distance to dining & drinks. We would certainly look to stay there again when we return to KW.

Owen O, 10/01/2015

Mellow Macaw

Outstanding location! Close to Duvall street, charming little place. Very clean. Highly recommend! Close to trolley stops if you wish to take the trolley instead of walking. Enjoyed the patio and great air conditioning!

Alma H, 07/10/2015

Comfy, cute, clean

The Mellow Macaw was just as described. The property was clean and well-maintained. After spending all day out touring Key West it was a wonderful place to come back to. We loved the patio and the cat Shoes was amusing. The manager Clyde was very helpful. I definitely will be back.

Joan V, 02/13/2015

Absolutely fabulous!

This is a wonderful property. Clean and very close to Duval. We walked everywhere! The butterfly sanctuary is a fabulous place and a must see for us.  We love the rum bar, which is one block away. The Green Parrot was also a lot of fun. The sunsets are wonderful. Clyde and Dennis took excellent care of our needs. We were very pleased with the entire experience and would definitely recommend this property to a friend. It was so nice to have a hot tub in the evening after walking the island all day. The cat was a nice extra. He came around every day and we fed him and watched his antics. Very entertaining! I would hope that anyone who stays here would be very nice to Shoes. Loved this place and the whole Key West experience.

Chillin' at the Mellow Macaw

Last Key properties ensures a very easy process for renting one of their properties. The contact person answered all my questions promptly either by phone or by email. Their online contract is very thorough and easy to work with. Our concierge was in touch with us as the date for our arrival neared with necessary instructions and then met us at the site when we arrived to let us in, show us around and introduce himself should we need anything. The property was as described, cheerfully decorated and properly appointed. It was very clean and stocked with necessary amenities. It was a short walk to Duval Street, the Hemingway House and Southernmost Point. There is off-the-street parking which is great!  This property had good security with 3 different locked doors to enter the house. We enjoyed the back patio quite a bit. We did use the grill. It was clean and worked very well. Tools were provided except for the brush which was said to be hanging on the grill. We couldn't find it. We cooked in tin foil so our fish didn't touch the grill anyway.

The property offers a hot tub for which a daily heating fee is required but when we arrived, it was not hot nor was it clean. However, a quick call to our concierge got that addressed and because of the hassle, the heating fee was removed from our bill.

We appreciated the access to a washer and dryer. One suggestion we do have is that the size of the potted plants should be made smaller or removed to make the patio look larger and less closed in. A 4-pack of toilet paper was provided but did not last for a week with 4 people. We ended up having to buy another 4-pack. Either buy a larger size package or buy a larger sized roll. Overall, we give the Mellow Macaw high marks and would recommend it.

Property was GREAT and close to everything!

Property was GREAT!

It had everything we could have possibly needed. We did not have to run to the store for anything on our arrival.

It was not a noisy location. We were 1 block off Duval and 1 block from Hemingway's house. We could walk to the Southernmost Point.

Great accommodations.

Great Key West Trip

Mellow Macaw was very convenient to nearly everything in Key West. We were welcomed by Krystal and she did a nice job explaining the details of the property. Comfortable living areas and good storage space for a cozy home. Would recommend Krystal and Mellow Macaw for a small to medium group for a great time in Key West.

Lovely Rental

This rental was clean, cute, comfortable and had everything we needed. The decor and furniture is beautiful and has a tropical feel. We enjoyed relaxing on the gated deck and it was good spot for out 2 year old to play. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go from this location. The manager Krystal was very helpful and the concierge service was an added bonus for booking activities. I would definitely recommend this rental to others.

Awesome place

This place was awesome. Perfect size for four people. Great location near Duval and all the hot spots. It was very well stocked with linens, beach towels and cooking items. Loved the hottub. Would come here again without a doubt!

Great times at Mellow Macaw!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mellow Macaw. The decor was bright and fresh. The beds were very comfortable, kitchen well equipped and clean. We loved being able to sit outside on the deck and grill dinner. Great location to access all areas of interest, especially the fresh bakeries and ice cream on Duval! Last Key Resort concierge (Krystal) was very helpful and energetic.

Cheery and Convenient

This condo is very nice, with plenty of space for our family of four. The property was very clean and the management was very friendly and responsive to our requests. The location is pretty perfect, close enough to walk to almost anything on Duvall Street and to other popular spots like the Hemingway House and Blue Heaven. However, there are a lot of chickens and roosters living in this neighborhood (and pretty much all over Key West) and they cockadoodle all through the night, so bring your earplugs or white noise app on your phone. Also, the property is on the path of the Trolley Tour and across the street from an AA meeting house, so there is a lot of activity on the street during the day. Everything (except the roosters) quiets down at night. This property is great for families, our kids had a lot of fun.

Would like to thanks all the wonderful employees of Last Key for a very nice stay at Mellow Macaw.  Many thanks to Krystal Thomas. She is truly the best. She took care on my party needs. Thank you Krystal. The place was very clean and well stock. Would rent this house again.

Thank you, James Tucker

Well kept property, good location, fine amenities

This property is well kept, with good amenities, including a wonderful hot tub. It is one street from Duval (main street) and within walking distance of many fine restaurants, bars with live music and attractions. The agency staff is very responsive to questions/ requests.

A quaint place in a great location

The Mellow Macaw served our needs well during our week long stay in KW. The place is very fresh, clean, and well maintained. The furniture, fixtures, utensils etc. all appeared to be brand new to us. We used the tub nightly as a way to wind down and each day. Additionally, the location to everything can't be beat.

Very nice place to stay in Key West!

The property was just as listed, a very nice place for a small group and/or 2 couples. The real estate agent was very helpful as well! The backyard gets some nice daytime sun and you can enjoy the hot tub as well. The gate adds another private level of security and the best part is the location, as you are very close to Duval, but far enough from the bars for quite time. Very enjoyable stay!

Old Key West Charm in the heart of everything describes the location. You walk in to a happy, cheerful, tropical bungalow. EVERYTHING you need for 2 days or 2 weeks is already there. Comfy beds, cotton linens, and fluffy soft towels make you feel more at home. Open your patio door to the Key West Street sounds and you are so glad your'e not home. One block off Duval Street, yet when you close the door it's quiet, private, and you feel secure. The property managers are fabulous. True Professionals who actually manage each individual rental.  You feel welcome, appreciated, and they go above and beyond what you would expect. I was so pleased with everything. Only ONE THING could have made it better, A Cabana 'Man" with a pitcher of Margaritas . But I didn't ask. Who Knows! The truth is my 15 year old son was with me., the environment was fun and definitely Key West, but you would have no worries staying there with a family. For me that's peace of mind.. GO ! BOOK THE PLACE ! IT'S GREAT !!
