Lives up to its name!
Great view and spacious deck, living space and kitchen. Rooms and bathrooms were nice and comfortable. Excellent service before and during our stay also.- Ira S , Posted: 07/11/2021
We really enjoyed "Smooth Sailing" (aka Unit 334)! The condo is in excellent condition with all new appliances including a FULL-SIZE washer and dryer in the unit which we've never seen before. The kitchen is very well stocked with almost anything you could need (including spices). Most light switches are labeled which is a nice touch, too. 1800 Atlantic is a well-maintained, quiet property with a mix of retirees, families with adult children, and young families. The property is convenient to both Smathers and Higgs Beaches. Note that the property is on the opposite side of the island from Old Town (near the airport) - while it was easy to get to Duval Street by car or bike, you won't have the convenience of being in the heart of the action if that's important to you. If you bring a car, parking is in a dedicated space in a garage that is extremely convenient to both the elevator and the unit. All-in-all, our stay in Smooth Sailing was just that - extremely smooth!- Mark H , Posted: 06/30/2021
Great condo with a great view!
We stayed at 1800 Atlantic Ave. in Key West Florida this last week. We cannot say enough good things about the condo we stayed in “Smooth Sailing”. Very very nice with a great view! But to top it all off Monique was our host through Last Reality & she was EXCELLENT!! We would recommend this property any day & defiantly would request to have Monique as your host through Last Reality! It truly was perfect!- Darren S , Posted: 06/06/2021
Stay Here, You'll Love It
Smooth Sailing is an appropriate name for the condo. The whole process was smooth and any questions I had were answered in a timely manner. The condo was super clean and provided basic kitchen items one might use but not pack for vacation. We loved the gardens and the "beach" by the pool. I would recommend staying at this condo.- Christine G , Posted: 05/16/2021
Loved Our Condo!
Smooth Sailing is a beautiful condo! Last Key Realty are awesome and extremely attentive and professional! We highly recommend booking thru Last Key Realty, you won’t be sorry.- Anita S , Posted: 05/09/2021

Look forward to coming back
well run business - you will get what's advertised- Brian N , Posted: 03/10/2021
I've stayed in the Keys dozens of times, many in KW. Came down for a trip with friends. "Smooth Sailing" was by far the best location, most affordable and beautiful of them all! Monique Griffith (personal customer service rep) was the icing on the cake! Love her!
- Karen G , Posted: 02/03/2021
Our stay in Key West was great
Communication from our host Monique was very clear, and she provided some great recommendations as well. The accommodations exceeded expectations, and the location made it very easy to check out all that Key West has to offer. Highly recommend to other visitors!

Monique was awesome to work with.
- Wes W , Posted: 01/30/2021
We loved this place! Clean, bright and airy. Nice decor. Mattresses comfy. Beautiful views. Convenient one-minute bike ride to Smathers Beach. Concierge super helpful. Loved the tennis courts that are in such great shape.
- Julie A , Posted: 01/06/2021
You WANT to stay here
This was a fantastic property and location. Pictures are accurate. The building itself is a little dates but the minute you get into your room, it wont even matter. Love the view (ocean, hot tub and pool view), the kitchen (full stocked with coffee pot, blender, Keurig, spices, pots and pans, cups and plates etc), the washer and dryer (with complimentary detergent and dryer sheets), local menues and adventure suggestions as well as a winderful surprise: Key Lime Poppyseed bread and Key Lime Nuts. Wonderful. Takes a little exploring to find your way to the pool area but once you do, there is a beautiful walkway with plants and orchids, as well as just a short walk beyond the pool is the beach.
- Nick G , Posted: 12/24/2020
Condo exceeded our expectations. Looking forward to renting again.
- Laura M , Posted: 12/22/2020
We hope to return!
We will definitely recommend this condo to family and friends. Very clean and beautifully decorated. The view was spectacular. Monique and Laura were both so helpful and friendly.
- Marsha C , Posted: 12/11/2020
This property sits right on the beach with amazing sunsets. The property has an excellent location for both relaxing quietly or just a five minute ride to downtown on Duval street for the night time activities. The Smooth Sailing condo was absolutely beautiful with everything we needed for our stay. There was two bathrooms and two bedrooms which were excellent, also two fold out couches with comfortable beds. The pool area is also excellent with a large pool and hot tub which was relaxing throughout the day. The property is under lock and key which was very comforting knowing you were safe from people coming on the property. There is nice places to go walking right outside of the property which my wife and sister enjoyed every day. The condo is also close to some great restaurants with great food. We will definitely stay here on our next visit to Key West.

Nicely renovated ocean view condo
Nicely renovated ocean view condo.
- Lesley D , Posted: 09/11/2020
Very impressive condo with updated fixtures and furnishings. Living Room and both bedrooms have views of the Florida Straight. Pool was very large and the outdoor areas were very clean. About 5-10 mins from Mallory Square area. Secure parking. Definitely a place we would like to stay at again.
- Samuel D , Posted: 08/28/2020
We had an amazing stay!
Our host was in constant contact making sure everything was okay, left us a binder of key west information and always gave detailed directions for necessary information. Would highly recommend to anyone and everyone!

Amazingly clean and lovely!
Great Location! Property Manager (Laura) was very helpful.

- Sherrie P , Posted: 06/19/2020
We will be back!
I highly recommend the last key realty, and especially Laura, she was the most accommodating hostess I think I’ve ever had on a trip. And I was not even expecting a hostess! Thank you and I look forward to seeing you again soon.
- Rusty V , Posted: 04/27/2020
We had a wonderful time during our week at Smooth Sailing!
The condo is beautiful - large, spacious, with wonderful decor. It was immaculately clean and well maintained. Checking in was a breeze - we arrived later in the evening and Laura arranged a lock box for us with the keys since she could not be there. James was working security and helped us check in, find our parking spot (there is one covered garage spot included,) our condo, and showed us around the complex. The amenities included are basically everything you could need. They have fresh linens for the beds (in addition to already being made up with fresh linens,) plenty of towels, beach towels, iron and ironing board. They also provide beach chairs, pool noodles, a hair dryer, Tide pods for the washer and dryer (which are in the unit), dishwasher soap, a small cooler, and much more. The kitchen is stocked with plates, bowls, cups, silverware, plastic dinnerware to use on the patio, as well as pots, pans, Tupperware, plenty of spatulas and utensils. Also included charcoal and grilling tools for the outdoor community grills. There is a wine fridge and plenty of wine and champagne glasses. There is a regular coffee maker as well as a Keurig, a toaster, hand blender, waffle maker, full blender. We cooked our Thanksgiving dinner here and only had to bring a roasting pan and a few casserole dishes from home to be able to cook a full turkey dinner! The beds were very comfortable, the showers were large and spacious and worked well - the master shower is complete heaven with all 5+ shower jets! There is access to the balcony from the living room as well as off of both bedrooms. You can’t see the complete sunset from the patio due to the trees, but you still get a beautiful view of the sun setting, the pool, and the ocean. Laura was available throughout our stay to answer any questions and make recommendations for restaurants and local activities. There is a complimentary concierge. The pool is wonderful, large and heated. There is a small beach area but no access to the ocean water directly. The condo complex is secure, locked doors from every entrance. In summary, this place was everything we expected and more. We thoroughly enjoyed our week here and the condo was well worth the price. We enjoyed staying on the ‘quieter’ side of the island as well - Duval Street is only a $12-14 Uber ride away and very easy to get to. If we ever return, we will without a doubt stay here again! Thank you for everything!
- Melissa B , Posted: 04/15/2020
Everything they said it would be and more!
Exceptionally clean. The key lime pie when we arrived late and hungry was a nice touch and greatly appreciate. James at condo could not have been more helpful.
- Anne F , Posted: 04/08/2020
Perfect spot for our vacation. The location and communication went above and beyond what we expected.- Ryan , Posted: 02/10/2020
Beautiful condo, great management!
Last Key did a great job and we would use them again in the future! Thank you!

Home Away From Home
1800 Atlantic Avenue #334 was by far the most immaculate condo I have every stayed in! Not only was the condo spotless, the amenities were extremely accommodating! We felt as if we were in our home away from home!

Smooth Sailing @ Key West
Beautiful Ocean condo!! Everything was perfect about our stay. Large bedrooms and baths, comfortable beds, beautiful kitchen and great deck to relax and unwind. Pool area was well maintained. Beautiful view from our deck. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to get away in the Keys.
- Jaci H , Posted: 10/10/2019
This condo took us by surprise!
There was a beautiful view outside of each bedroom and living room. This was a great location to many of the different areas on the island. Small beach just a 5 minute walk away and about 2 miles away from all the other beach areas, Duval street, fishing, etc. The staff provided our family with everything we needed from beach chairs, to sunscreen, bug spray, beach towels and much more. They were always prompt in responding when we needed them, and had great recommendations on where to eat and anything we wanted to do. The people are so nice, welcoming, and it is overall a beautiful island to discover and coming back home was great after a long day. Can’t wait to come back and would do it all over again.
- Ivonne L , Posted: 09/18/2019
Well kept condominium
The apartment is spacious, nicely decorated, very well equipped, close to the ocean. The beds are very comfortable, with soft sheets. Kitchen is very well stocked , master bathroom has huge shower with multiple shower heads and plenty of towels. The building looks old on the outside, and the common areas are dated, but the apartment is updated, very comfortable. During our stay there was a pungent smell in the whole area, so we did not use the large, private balcony overlooking the ocean. Laura the host was very helpful, explained everything upon our arrival.
- Ildiko J , Posted: 07/25/2019
You won't be disappointed!
Better than expected as far as amenities. They even provided things like Tide Pods for the in-room laundry. Very clean. Nicely decorated.
- Jennifer P , Posted: 07/18/2019
Place was beautiful!! Everything was updated and well maintained so looked new. The place was very open and had enough room for all 6 of us. We drove to the Keys from Miami and ran late from our original time and Laura was great about it. She arranged for us to check in with security when we arrived. There was even a Key Lime Pie for us in the fridge. The grounds were well kept and pool was clean. Wasn’t overly crowded either. One day almost had pool to ourselves. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.
- Kristin S , Posted: 07/09/2019
Thank you Laura and team for everything!
Pick this place, you won’t be disappointed! Unit was perfect and very clean and in a great location. We loved the pool and enjoyed all the local recommendations in the guest book. SALUTE! was a particular favorite on Higgs Beach just down the road. Laura and the whole support team were wonderful, really great customer service. I hope to return and highly recommend Smooth Sailing!- Mary L , Posted: 07/05/2019
The property is so well kept. Everything is high end. We had a very relaxing and comfortable stay. I would definitely recommend it. Communication was very efficient and prompt. Shannon was awesome, instructions were very clear. Check in and out was easy and smooth. We were welcome to the property with a delicious Key Lime Pie and a lovely welcome card in the fridge. What else can you ask for?
- Juan U , Posted: 07/01/2019
Key West Southside
Smooth Sailing-property worked great for our joint family vacation. My husband and I were joined by our daughter, son-in-law and 18 month old grand daughter. Very clean and spacious updated unit.

Condo was very nice. Beautiful view. Great pool. Overall the place was very clean.- Keith M , Posted: 06/12/2019
As represented and then some!
Rather than repeat everything positive already written about this property, let me just say it’s all true! The pictures well represent it. In fact, though we rent often, never before have pictures as fairly represented a place as they did here. In fact, it was even nicer than we expected! It’s certainly very clean and extremely well stocked. The property manager, Laura Mayesing, was outstanding, absolutely goes well above any call of duty - tirelessly helpful and just a joy! We loved the place! Rent with confidence!
- Larry S , Posted: 06/06/2019
Great location and amenities
Condo was very clean!! Rental agency was super helpful as well. I highly recommend this property and would absolutely stay there again!- Kaitlin S , Posted: 05/08/2019
We had a wonderful stay at Smooth Sailing
The condo was spotless upon arrival. It was nicely appointed with everything we needed and even more. The linens were crisp and fresh, the bed was exceptionally comfy, the kitchen was not only well stocked but very organized. The view is beautiful and the pool was clean and well-maintained. We walked to Salute for dinner and rented bikes to get to Duval area. Our guest services coordinator, Laura, was outstanding!! Very prompt with replies, gave us tons of good local information and was super friendly. We would return!- Cathy S , Posted: 05/08/2019
We stayed at Smooth Sailing for a quick Spring Break getaway
The condo was super clean, the perfect size for our family, and so well equipped with every amenity. Laura our property manager even arrived early to meet our grocery delivery before our arrival and was so helpful with suggestions on dining and getting around Key West.- Lisa M , Posted: 04/24/2019
Can’t say enough about this condo! Beautifully redone, great pool! Laura was wonderful and helpful from start to finish of our booking and stay. Will defiantly stay in this unit again!- Julie G from Cincinnati , Posted: 04/11/2019
Wonderful stay at 1800 Atlantic
Laura Mayesing was our concierge and provided us with excellent service.- Lee G , Posted: 04/09/2019

- Kelli H , Posted: 03/27/2019
The view was amazing from our spot
We arrived to smooth sailing March 7 and the condo was top notch. Laura Mayesing was super warm and made our group feel very welcome and comfortable. Definitely returning in the future.- Dylan S , Posted: 03/13/2019
Our family trip to the Keys was incredible
Our condo through Last Key was the perfect place to crash after a long day of sightseeing. We were so impressed with the service and especially our host, Laura, who made us feel right at home. That key lime pie hit the spot! We would absolutely stay with them again.- Rachael T , Posted: 03/12/2019
Smooth Sailing is a lovely condo
Everything is new and sparkling clean. All amenities you would need are there and if you need anything extra, it is delivered immediately. We found all the beds, including the fold-out sofa, to be very comfortable and convenient. The building is pretty quiet and very secure. We enjoyed the hot tub and close access to the beach. The building is about a 15 minute bike ride from downtown Key West and the concierge arranged both our bikes to be delivered and a sunset boat ride.- Catherine G , Posted: 01/31/2019
We used Last Key Reality to rent a condo (Smooth Sailing) for a long weekend from 11/8/18-11/11/18. I can't say enough about how awesome the condo was, and how great and accommodating the staff was. Our contact Laura met us at the condo for check-in (they gave us early check in and late check out!), brought mimosas to celebrate a birthday in our group, and gave us a full rundown of the place. The home was fully furnished with everything we needed shy of food and drink. We will definitely go back, and will definitely use Last Key Reality for future trips to the area.- Kylie R , Posted: 11/30/2018
The condo was perfect, with all of the amenities we would ever need with upscale finishes
The pool area was larger than most found in Key West and always plenty of places to sit. The views of the ocean from the condo and pool area were fantastic. Overall, great and well maintained property.- Matthew H , Posted: 07/24/2018
2 couples stayed in an 1800 Atlantic Boulevard condo. The entire experience was fantastic. The condo was beautiful, and the pool was perfect for both our lap swimmer and noodle floaters. Great view from the third floor unit and Last Key made us feel welcome and informed. Highly recommend both.- Tim J , Posted: 06/14/2018
We couldn't have asked for anything better. From the view to the furnishings everything was perfect. We plan on going back and staying longer. Beautiful view of the ocean too....very peaceful- Grant B , Posted: 03/15/2018
This condo was perfect! We stayed for a week in August with 3 teenage boys and I could not have asked for anything better. Last Key Reality was top notch. I was celebrating my 50th birthday and they had flowers in our unit when we arrived. The rental agent was in constant touch with us and helped with anything we needed. The unit was very spacious and clean with ample towels and amenities. The pool was amazing and location was perfect, right on the water away from the crowds, yet close enough to bike to all of the action. I would stay in this unit again and book with Last Key Reality anytime. I highly recommend, you will not be disappointed.- Lynn W , Posted: 09/01/2017
Little Piece of Paradise!
Could not have asked for a better place to stay, everything from the time we booked our stay to our final day was above and beyond our expectations! Location was perfect for our interests, Smathers Beach is just a very short walk from the Condo and offered us sand and a great location to do some easy snorkeling with the kids! If the beach isn't what your looking for the pool and spa were really great and made for a great place to relax. Anywhere you wish to go is just a short ride away and if you don't feel up to venturing out to eat, many places deliver, or even better stay in and utilize the awesome kitchen like we did on multiple occasions. It was a miracle I was able to convince my wife to leave, she fell in love with the place! Will definitely plan on future visits in the future!- Brent K , Posted: 09/01/2017
Heaven on Earth!
Our family of 5 stayed at La Bonnie Vie June 24 - July 1. This was our first visit to Key West and it definitely won't be our last! Shannon from Last Key Realty, Inc. was fabulous!!! She reached out to us ahead of our visit and answered all of our questions. She met us at the condo on check-in day, told us all about the condo/pool and provided a TON of great info on restaurants, sight-seeing, etc. She even touched base with us throughout the week to make sure we were enjoying our vacation. The condo itself was absolutely gorgeous. Beautifully updated (LOVED the kitchen and the Master Bathroom had a fabulous spa shower!). It was very clean and well taken care of! Ocean views from every room, convenient parking spot and a short walk to the pool. This condo is also a short 5 minute walk to Smather's Beach which gives you the best of both worlds. Some of favorite restaurants included: El Siboney Restaurant (authentic Cuban food), Santiago's Bodega (tapas), Louie's Backyard (sit outside on the patio) and Salute (Italian). Shannon recommended Salute as did a local woman we met in the pool and it was one of favorites! Cuban Coffee Queen is a must for coffee lovers! Other suggestions: Hemingway's House, The Conch Train, Southernmost Point, paddle boarding at Smather's Beach, a sunset snorkeling cruise, Sloppy Joe's, Mile 0 Marker, Mallory's Square and of course, Duval Street. We would highly recommend Key West and would definitely look to book again with Last Key Reality, Inc.!!!

Clean and well appointed
Great unit. Everything was as shown in the photos. Shannon was wonderful. We had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We will definitely return to this unit.- Barbara C , Posted: 07/17/2017
Awesome July 4th Stay
Just got back home from 4 nights/5 days at La Bonne Vie. We were in town both for a few days of scuba diving but also to celebrate Independence Day in a beach environment. Everything at La Bonne Vie is top notch! This is the rare case where the pics really do not do it justice. Ocean view from all rooms. Very comfortable, all details taken care of and a very nice location, close enough to all the action but far enough to escape a bit. The property management company and their representatives (including concierge service) take care of any need you have. We will definitely be back.- Steve B , Posted: 07/07/2017
1st time in Key West
This condo was extremely well appointed and the view is actually better than the pictures portray. As it was our first trip to Key West we were pretty active while we were there, but La Bonne Vie was a peaceful and relaxing landing point for starting and ending the day. Could not have found a better accommodation.- Doug W , Posted: 06/29/2017
Felt like home. We had a wonderful week
Condo was bright, beautiful, modern and had everything we needed. There is a beautiful view of the ocean and pool from the balcony. There is also a nice sandy beach area between the pool and coral shore. A group of tree tops just below the balcony provided great privacy from below. Both bedrooms and the living room have access to the balcony and share that stunning view. The location was on the quiet side of the island with a short car ride or bike ride to Duval Street. Found a bike rental place in the extensive booklet provided that delivered and picked up. A public beach is adjacent to the property and less than a 5 minute walk. A 15 minute walk in the other direction leads to a pier to watch the sunrise, walk in a beautiful public garden or eat at a nice seaside restaurant. Shannon, our Realtor host, gave us a thorough intro to Key West, answered all our questions and took care of our every request. She was terrific. Thanks Shannon!- Patrick D , Posted: 04/10/2017
A piece of heaven
Perfect, luxury, clean, great location, view was incredible. Shannon was spot on helping with every bit of the stay.- Barb H , Posted: 03/16/2017
La Bonne Vie is a great spot. The condo we stayed was practically new. Very clean unit and the building and grounds are spotless. Big beautiful kitchen, big living room, two full baths, a big balcony with sweeping views of the ocean. The balcony has three ways to enter it, which is nice. The unit has full washer and dryer. The pool area is very nice. Big warm pool and a big outdoor Jacuzzi. It also has a nice beach area. You cant access the ocean directly but Smather's Beach is a 2 minute walk and Higgs beach is about a 10 minute walk away. The one drawback is that it is a 10-15 minute drive to Mallory Square but other than that, it is a great spot. Also, Shannon, the representative from Last Key is very good and helpful. She helped with restaurant recommendations and tips around the island. You can also book tours, etc through Last Key, which is very helpful. Definitely go to Hogfish and Conch Republic restaurants.- Julie S , Posted: 02/28/2017
This was our first stay in a condo, while on vacation, and it was a positively wonderful experience! This condo was very clean and updated, spacious, decorated very tastefully, the beds are very comfortable, and the kitchen space is incredible! The property managers, Last Key Realty, were extremely accommodating and offer great tips on places to eat, things to see, and activities to enjoy during your stay. We rented scooters to go around the island, and that worked out perfectly. We came with another couple, and we all highly recommend this property!- Renee L , Posted: 02/13/2017
Loved our stay!
We loved our stay at La Bonne Vie. We thought it was a perfect location with a beach nearby and easy biking to downtown. We'll be back.- Sabine B , Posted: 01/06/2017
Condo exceeded our expectations. Kitchen and bathrooms all updated. Condo was spacious for 4 adults. Balcony with fan and view was great. Quiet. Access to beach and running path along beach was within shouting distance. A bit of a hike to get to Duval street on foot (we walked it one time); but a nice bike ride to get there and an easy taxi ride for sure.- Carrie A , Posted: 11/07/2016
Everything you could want!!!
La Bonne Vie was great and Shannon was a pleasure to deal with. The view was breathtaking from all the balconies. The place was very spacious, clean, and up to date. The pool and spa area were a very nice place to spend our time. They have the place stocked with everything you need. I would recommend this place to anyone. It IS kid friendly. Shannon at Last Key Realty was the icing on the cake. She took the time to show you around and explain the unit. She also gives you good ideas and suggestions for the Keys. She even came and saw us off. Thank you for the great memories!- Tim D , Posted: 08/15/2016
Grand first impression!
We really enjoyed our stay. The condominium was open and airy. Beautiful kitchen counter tops. The beds were very comfortable. Great location. It was wonderful! And I've got to say, Shannon, You are a "Great PR Person to Have!!" You made us feel so welcome. You were able to answer all of our questions about what sites to see and where the favorite restaurants were! Great Trip! Thank you! :)- Jean M , Posted: 07/19/2016
Great family rental
This property has recently been full renovated, and it is beautiful. The kitchen is lovely, and very well equipped if you want to cook. The sleeping configuration was perfect for us and our two kids, and they also enjoyed the stock of brand new games. The pool is very nice, and not crowded. You are also just around the corner from the beach. The condo has a lovely balcony for dining or relaxing. The beds were very comfortable. It was spotless on our arrival, and it felt like no one had ever stayed there before (perhaps they hadn't?). We had great service from Caryn, and there is a lot of information available in the condo about activities, restaurants, etc. We also used the Last Key concierge for help booking everything - extremely easy and helpful. The only downside of this place is that you are not very close to downtown. It's a LONG walk with little kids.
- Eliza , Posted: 07/19/2016
The property was amazing. Right on the water, great view, and wonderful pool and hot tub facilities. All Gated and secure. The condo unit was fantastically decorated and all updated with all brand new appliances. Great time in Key West!! Last Key Realty was wonderful!!!
