Once again our stay at Southernmost Bliss far exceeded any expectations!!
If the outside area was not already perfect, the homeowner has added very nice and comfortable outdoor furniture. Made morning coffee and afternoon by the pool even more relaxing. This home is amazing in every detail. Location continues to be one of the highlights as well. Key West has added "The Loop" which provides transportation to the key attractions in Old Town. So you never have to walk more than a couple of blocks to entertainment or dining options. Last Key Realty continues to offer excellent customer service and of course Shel is THE BEST!!! So kind and helpful and accommodating to make sure your vacation is perfect!!

We've stayed in several different homes in Key West, and this was by far the best. Outdoor space was incredible and the location couldn't be more convenient.- John A , Posted: 12/31/2018
Service above & beyond
Wow, were to start: This is our third rental with Last Key Realty. The houses always look like the photos usually better in person. The house manager 'Shel' is the best, there for check in, mail delivery just anything you may need he has the answer. During this particular stay we had to depart prior to the end of our stay due to hurricane 'Irma'. Hoping to return I left some items behind, well everyone know the rest of the story on Hurricane 'Irma' we were unable to return. Within a day of the road opening and postal service etc. restored. Shel had my items packed and shipped to me, even though everyone in Key West was still getting themselves put back together with clean up etc.. I would give Shel and this company 10 stars. We travel world wide, I have never had any service or individual top the friendship & service of 'Shel at Last Key Realty. Hope all is back together in Key West. See you in the future.

Amazing Vacation Home!
This was our second year staying at this property. Again it exceeded all of our expectations. We came to town on the tail of Irma and Shel and the staff at Last Key Realty went above and beyond to make sure our vacation home was ready and in perfect order for us. Southernmost Bliss is furnished with top notch appliances and gas grill. The home is centrally located so easy to walk pretty much anywhere in Old Town. Can not emphasize enough the amazing service you receive when you stay at a property that Shel is overseeing!! Will see you again next year Shel!!- Marion M , Posted: 12/22/2017
Perfectly Peaceful Retreat in Oldtwon Key West
We have been vacationing in Key West for the month of November for about 8 years now. We have always stayed on Sunset Key. This year, we decided to stay in Oldtown, and Alex O'Donnell, of Last Key Realty, found the most perfect paradise home for my family! Southernmost Bliss was absolutely everything that we could have hoped for, both inside and out. We did not see the property before our stay, but the listing and the photos were completely accurate. It actually exceeded our expectations. Upon arrival we were met by Shel Segel, our Guest Services Coordinator. In our opinion, Shel holds the distinction as the perfect guest coordinator, and more importantly, we are now proud to call him "friend." Shel was ALWAYS available for our every question or need! As a matter of fact, we have already booked our Key West home for November, 2018, and we are so pleased that Shel will once again be our Key West coordinator! We cannot wait to relax completely for another November, knowing everything we could wish for in a vacation home is waiting for our return! Beverly Jennings- Beverly J , Posted: 12/22/2017
Another heavenly trip!
This was my second year in a row to stay at Southernmost Bliss, and I liked it even more that last year if that's possible. Once again, the location is perfect. It's in the center of Old Town, so close to everything, but peaceful a quiet tucked down Love Lane. The house itself is well laid out and maintained, perfect for guests to have a little privacy if they want. The pool is great, with good light and just the right size. All of the appliances are up-to-date and the kitchen is fully stocked. They have everything. The upgrades to the master bath and the outdoor shower are terrific. And Shel and Last Key Realty were wonderfully helpful without being intrusive. Southernmost Bliss is pretty much ideal. I hope to be back next year.- David M , Posted: 08/14/2017
Excellent service provided by Last Key Realty
Great location, walking distance to the best places in old town. The manager of the property, Shel, from Last Key Realty is a friendly and efficient person ready to resolve any issues related with the house. We expected a bigger pool, but it was not a problem.- Silvia S , Posted: 05/19/2017
Clean, well appointed, excellent service
We had a wonderful stay at Southernmost Bliss. The home is clean & well appointed. It feels much larger than we imagined. It was very comfortable even with eight people in the house. We hosted some friends for dinner one evening. Again, the house was comfortable and well appointed enough for a casual meal at home with several friends. The service from Shel at Last Key was amazing, as well. Thank you!- Cheryl W , Posted: 02/08/2017
Excellent vacation home experience. Great house with very comfortable accommodations. Private fenced in back yard leading out from the outdoor living room by the pool. Really great location in walking distance from anywhere you might want to go. Property is very well maintained and extremely clean. Would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a clean and comfortable accommodation that is close to everything Key West has to offer but away from the crowds.- Matthew W , Posted: 12/19/2016
Excellent Old Town location, very well appointed
Exceptional property conveniently located in the heart of Old Town Key West. Walk or bike to almost everything. Close to restaurants, shops and Fausto's grocery (which offers delivery). Easy 5-6 blocks to Duval Street dining and night life. Home location is quiet & secluded. The property is beautiful and very well appointed, with all the necessary kitchen appliances and utensils. The outdoor dining area, which includes a large flat screen TV, is exceptional. The pool area is just right for cooling off in the afternoon or a late night refresher, with enough room to get in some exercise if you're so inclined. The sound of the pool's waterfall feature provides a nice relaxing background for time sunbathing, reading or napping. Bedrooms and baths are equally well appointed with above average linens. If you need anything at all, just reach out to Shel at Last Key Realty. He is helpful with his advice and is super attentive if any issues should arise. His attention to detail and prompt response was truly exceptional, and made our stay all the more enjoyable. If you are looking for an exceptional property in a prime location, this is the one. We plan to be back.- Ken K , Posted: 12/14/2016
October in Paradise
Before we booked this property we read all of the reviews and decided this house was for us. Everything everyone says is true! Perfect location, floor plan, furnishings are comfortable and beautiful! The pool area was very relaxing. The parking is advertised as 2 spots but they have to be small cars. Since I drive an Expedition there was not really room for another car. But that worked out fine for our group. The customer service that Last Key gives is over the top!! We had a couple small issues and they were taken care of immediately. The pool man comes weekly and was also excellent. The lawn guys also were excellent. Everyone treated us like we were family that had just arrived home. Will always rent from Last Key Realty. Can't wait for our next trip to Key West!- Marion , Posted: 11/17/2016
Southernmost Bliss is a beautiful property, ideally located and well-maintained. It's spacious and can accommodate a family or a few guests with no issues. The house is also clean, and the owners have considerately labelled light switches, shower nozzles, etc for the guests. The back deck and pool are perfect, good light, and the pool is a great size. I would say the house is even better than it photographs. I really loved it and will stay here again. Shel and Last Key were also terrific, helpful and communicative. I will miss this house!

Nicest house in Key West!
I stayed at this beautiful home in Key West with my brother and two of my children. It is perfectly located, close to downtown AND the seaport, but without noise or foot traffic. We love Love Lane! The pool is larger than it appears in the photos. We had 5 star concierge service from Shel at Last Key Realty and everything in the home was just first rate. It is beautifully decorated, very clean and well-maintained. Elegant but comfortable, we did not want to leave. What a find.- Gillian L , Posted: 07/25/2016
Everything was perfect from the day of arrival til the last day. Shel made sure we had everything that we needed and more. The property is absolutely gorgeous and the location is to die for. The house was equipped to the nines with very high end appliances and accessories, not to mention the outside kitchen/dining area which we practically lived in. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family.
Love Lane is aptly named! Thank you Shel and everyone at Last Key Realty for an unforgettable vacation!

5+ Star Key West Vacation Home and Management Team
We loved our month's stay at this beautiful 3 bedroom plus loft home on Love Lane. Guests and family who joined us during our stay also loved "Love Lane". The home is perfectly located in Old Town - close to restaurants, Duval Street, Mallory Square, and Seaport - yet secluded, quiet and without traffic.
The website description and photographs are truly representative of this gorgeous property. The home's gathering spot - and everyones favorite room - was the covered patio by the pool with fully equiped wet bar including copper sink and refrigerator to chill your favorite beverages and snacks as well as the built -in cabinet housing a flat screen TV.
The property is well maintained, fully equipped with top of the line appliances, and very comfortable. The landscape and pool service companies came weekly. Additionally, to our surprise, there was a garbage "valet" who made sure our garbage cans were placed out for trash collection and then returned after pick-up. We requested additional housekeeping between quests/family visits and the housekeepers arrived exactly as scheduled. The Last Key Concierge team successfully made dinner reservations, too.
We were able to spend the month enjoying friends and family and creating new "forever" cherished memories because of the level of customer service provided by Last Key Reality's management team. The team thought of everything both before and throughout our stay! Although we have rented from other management companies in the last 8 years, Last Key Reality is truly in a league of its own.
After a disappointing surprise cancellation by another Key West management company just 3 weeks before our planned arrival in a home we had rented, fully paid, and secured for more than a year, we reached out and were introduced to Last Key Reality. Reservations with Alex were a breeze. She professionally and throughly answered our many questions. Shel, our guest services manager, provided 5 star concierge service exceeding our expectations. As with any rental, minor unexpected needs did arise including appliances needing service. What was different though was the level of immediate response - sometimes within minutes of a call. Shel took great care of us and treat us like family throughout our stay.
We would definitely recommend this property and the Last Key Reality team. Thank you Shel and Last Key Reality team for an unforgettable vacation. We are counting the days until we return back to Love Lane.

Beautifully cozy Key West Home!
We stayed in this home for 9 weeks and loved every minute of it. The house is within walking distance to Duval but completely away from the crowds and noise. The convenient location also gave easy access to the main streets for getting to the other areas of KW by car, scooter or electric car. The quaint street and quiet neighborhood were perfect for our family. We enjoyed the outside entertainment area and the pool is a perfect size!! We would definitely stay at this property again and the house manager Shel is always a pleasure on our summer visits to KW!- Shelli H , Posted: 07/25/2016
Definitely bliss on Love Lane!
We thoroughly enjoyed he beautiful and comfortable home on Love Lane. It is very well appointed, the beds are comfortable an the linens are high quality. The pool and lanai are great to start the day off with a cup of coffee, catch up on the news and listen to the neighborhood rooster. True Key West
The home is within easy walking of fine dining and neighborhood grocery stores, yet located on a private and charming lane.
Shel met us at the home when we arrived, gave a tour of the home along with recommendations of favorite restaurants, etc. He was very quick with any needs we had...and we knew he was a phone call away. Shel, you are the best!
We have reserved a month at Southernmost Bliss for next year. We do love it!

A blissful December
My family stayed at this home from the end of November until the beginning of January. It was wonderful! Great location, lovely house and yard. The pool area does not get as much sun as we would have liked, but it is a lovely place to relax and a great place to grill and eat. Shel, once again, was a wonderful host and we look forward to seeing him every year! We know we can count on Shel and Last Key Realty for a great experience.- Jan P , Posted: 07/25/2016
Wonderful time in Key West
Last Key and Shel provided us a wonderful Key West Experience. Shel was always available and willing to provide help when it was needed. His recommendations to restaurants were spot on. He really did a fantastic job! The property's location is central to all that Key West has to offer. It is quiet and offers very good parking. However, the property is very tired and needs to be updated with new furniture, cooking utensils and shower curtains.
- Betty L , Posted: 07/25/2016
Although this review was ultimately a positive one, the mention of the property being "tired" was taken very seriously by the management team for this special home. Since this review was received, this home has undergone some major refurnishing and upgrades. Future guests will enjoy all new living room furnishings, new kitchen pots, pans, and knife sets, several new pieces of artwork, and additional nighttime outdoor lighting. Any furniture and decking that needed repair has been addressed, and the landscaping has been extensively redesigned. We look forward to our future guests' feedback on these upgrades and thank our previous guests for the constructive feedback. As a note, future guests are encouraged to notify us as soon as they notice any items that can be addressed to improve their stay during their time with us as we do attempt to address all issues in a proactive and timely manner to ensure the best possible experience for our guests.

Once again we loved staying in this beautiful Love Lane home. It was the second time we rented the well designed one story 3 bedroom plus loft home from Last Key Reality. Each of the bedrooms has its own private bathroom and closet with plenty of storage space. The master bedroom is off the living/kitchen area with its own sliding door entrance to the pool. The other 2 bedrooms are located on the opposite side of the home offering much privacy to guests or other family members. Our favorite area was the covered outdoor dining area with its own wet bar next to the pool. The owners lovingly added many new upgrades since our previous stay including outside landscaping and lighting, all clad cookware, several new rugs, and a light in the master closet. Additionally, the home is perfectly located - close to favorite restaurants, shops, sites and historic seaport - yet on a quiet Old Town lane with its own private off-street parking. Once the car was parked, we again walked everywhere. Last Key Reality and Shel were awesome - the entire team, especially Shel, go above and beyond to ensure the vacation is truly a vacation. Shel sets the standard for service and follow-up that few could ever match. We highly recommend Last Key Reality, Shel, and this beautiful home! We are already dreaming about our 3rd upcoming stay in "Southernmost Bliss" in 2016.

Perfect family getaway
What a great find in Key West. This being our 4th year renting a home, this place was the best. House is better then described, beautiful bedrooms with own bathrooms, lovely kitchen, spacious living area. The lanai overlooking the perfect size pool was the best, we spent many a day and night hanging out there. Great location, no car needed, rode bikes & walked all month. Close to Fort Zachery. We are music lovers, so spent many a night going from place to place enjoying the wide variety of musicians. Locals were so friendly, found some new restaurants, Mangia, Mangia, Tourquoise, to name a few. We brought our 2 dogs, and with Key West so dog friendly, we were welcomed wherever we went. Was also invited to a puppy shower at Pepe's, such fun.
Last Key really does a great job, Lori who has helped us in the past, was terrific in helping us find this gem. Shel our property manager was the best, so friendly, touched base with us weekly to make sure our stay was perfect. He actually was there at 7am to bid us goodbye.
You cannot wrong with this home.

A month of Heaven
Tucked away on a very small side street was great. Quiet and peacefull to say the least. What I loved the best was the mini kitchen next to the pool. Spent a lot of time there having dinner, drinks or reading your favorite book. Plenty of space to stretch out, beautifull bedrooms with hugh bathrooms. A short walk to all the popular places. You'll love it.- Bob M , Posted: 07/25/2016
Very comfortable home in the center of town.
The home was even lovelier in person. Beautiful furnishings, well stocked kitchen and fun outside area.
Once again, Shel was AWESOME going above and beyond to ensure you have a fabulous trip. We would rent this home again in the future, we had a fabulous stay!

Our home away from home!
This is the second time we have rented Southernmost Bliss. Blissful, it is! The home on a quiet lane in Old Town (close enough to restaurants, bars, shopping but far enough it is quiet) and provides everything you could possible want. The owners have upgraded the cookware so the kitchen is pleasantly stocked for any meal you might want to prepare. Nice covered gas grill with propane tanks are also provided. The home is comfortable, the outdoor living space is restful and very comfortable. We will definitely be renting this home again!- Gary D , Posted: 07/25/2016
This house is absolutely wonderful! I would recommend this property to anyone. The house is clean and well furnished. The layout is very nice for family. The master bedroom is at one end of the house and the other two bedrooms are at the other end. The loft is perfect for a teen. Shel is great! If you need his help, he is right there to help you. We walked everywhere from this location. Off street parking is only for one car; however, street parking can be found close by. The pool was perfect for cooling off. The outdoor covered patio was delightful for breakfast and dinner. This house is really a gem in Old Town!- Nancy H , Posted: 07/25/2016
Best Key West trip yet!
I cannot say enough about Shel, the property manager, and our entire stay at Love Lane. It was perfect from beginning to end.
We rent a home every year in Key West over the holidays, and this was by far our favorite property yet. The lanai over looks the pool which was perfect for morning yoga, breakfast, lunches and dinners. Location is perfect, and we rode our bikes or walked everywhere.
Thank you Shel for making our stay perfect. This home is a special place and we'll definitely be back!
- Julie B , Posted: 07/25/2016
Beautiful, well appointed and convenient!
I stayed in Southernmost Bliss @ Love Lane the month of January 2016. I cannot tell you how wonderful and beautiful this property is and how conveniently it is located. The house is beautifully appointed and lush in the back yard with the pool and landscaping. The customer service is top notch and I will go back again and again! It was so wonderful to walk to all the best restaurants...Sarabeth's, Blue Heaven, Latitudes on Sunset Key, etc. or just stroll around and bike. You will not be disappointed!
- Margie W , Posted: 07/25/2016
Perfect location, a tucked away oasis
We very much enjoyed our stay. The house is centrally located, yet is tucked away down a quiet lane so you are spared any noise from motorbikes and cars. Nicely furnished and updated kitchen and bath were very nice. It was great to privately accessed bathrooms with each of the bedrooms, all on the first floor. The one drawback to the layout of the house is that the only table and chairs, eating/working location is in a covered area outside. This is fine when the weather is neither too cool or too hot, but a problem otherwise. It got chilly this February. My brother-in-law came up with the idea of requesting a heater like restaurants use outdoors. I texted Shel, the house's assigned rep. Within three hours, the propane heater was bought AND set up! We used it frequently, and it added significantly to our comfort. That was typical of Shel; he was on hand for every issue, no matter how small. I've rented many vacation houses before, but I have never had service like the Last Key rental management company provided. Everyone there was helpful and friendly. Staying in one place an entire month, this proved to be really important.

Excellent, Private Retreat in Heart of Old Town
After renting several properties from Last Key Realty, we decided to give Southernmost Bliss a try in June of 2016. Location is superb, sandwiched between Duval, the Seaport, and the Key West Cemetery on an absolutely quiet and undisturbed Old Town lane. The unit has ample parking, plenty of area to store rented bicycles, and space for quiet night times walks with pets. The interior has been recently and thoughtfully updated throughout. Three bedrooms were perfect for our needs and all had nice decor, comfortable beds, and plenty of room. The backyard is likely the best we've had in our many rentals in Key West. It has a nice large deck, perfect sized pool for casual dips, and an outstanding outdoor eating area which includes a large table for 6 people, refrigerator, cable tv, etc. The backyard completely private and well-landscaped, as you have a tendency to forget you are in the heart of Old Town. The property was absolutely clean and well-maintained. It is short walking distance to many local eateries including, Michael's, Sarabeth's, Mangia Mangia, and 5 Brothers Coffee Shop.
As mentioned, we have rented several places in Key West and most rentals have their pro's and con's. I struggle to fault this property with anything. It is a luxury property, absolutely maintained well, and delivered a quality vacation for our family. Our main point of discussion is when to take the time off to rent it again!
