Better than Advertised!
As advertised- make that even better than advertised!! Will never stay at The Marker hotel again.- Denise V , Posted: 07/25/2021
Relaxation at The Contented Crane
This was a nice property in Old town. Full size town home. Short walk to Duval or the beach. Great that each room had its own bathroom. Only has one parking space and is a tight fit at times. Monique communicated quickly with check in and check out. When one balcony door was stuck the problem was corrected very quickly. Overall great place to relax and enjoy Key West.

Key West Getaway
Me and (7) other 30-something year olds had a great stay. Walking distance to everything and a convenience store three doors down helped make our stay easy and always comfortable. Be sure to keep the noise down on the back deck and in the pool after 11pm (There are year-round residents close by). Understandable. The pool, albeit small, is deep and it comfortably held 8 of us with drinks in hand. Enjoy!!

We went to key west for a girls weekend and really enjoyed our stay! Loved all the amenities and Monique our property contact was great!!

Clean, well appointed property in great location! Property manager Monique was out of this world. She was aware it was our daughter’s birthday and hung a sign, had balloons, a key lime pie, candles and a bottle of champagne. Will rent again when in KW!

Home is beautiful and well kept
We had a wonderful time in Key West staying at the Contented Crane. Walking distance to Duval street was great. Monique who manages the property was just wonderful. Couldn't ask for better service.

The team at Last Key was fantastic before and after our stay providing all the necessary details for arrival and departure. The concierge service was a big plus helping with all our tours and rentals while we were on the key.

Was a good place to stay. Will stay there again in the future.

Was greeted with the warmest welcome!
We had everything we needed and the home was clean and very well kept. Can't wait to come back!- James C , Posted: 06/06/2019
Spent 4 days with family and couldn't have been a better experience
This property is nicely decorated and well appointed, pool was awesome for a relaxing dip after a long day walking or first thing before venturing out. Cooked on the grill. Plenty of room for 6, large bedrooms and upstairs balcony was great. Wouldn’t change a thing and would definitely return.- Karen J , Posted: 05/16/2019
Thanks for the memories!
We stayed at the Contented Crane house. Beautiful house, great location and Monique was fantastic to work with! Plenty of room for our 6 girls weekend getaway and convenient location for walking or bus route anywhere.- Chris M , Posted: 05/01/2019
Very nice place and location!
We really enjoyed our stay. It was a great location and beautiful house. We were welcomed upon arrival and greeted before we departed. We will definitely return!- Nicole S , Posted: 03/13/2019
We loved it!!!
The contented crane was better than expected! Great location, all amenities needed, and friendly staff! We came down on a girls bday trip and would definitely stay again!- D J , Posted: 03/07/2019
Key West Stay
Monique Griffen, the property manager for the “Contented Crane” property in Key West was great! The house was very clean and our family of four had plenty of space for our stay. Monique made the check in and check out process very easy and was very friendly.- Marci C , Posted: 03/06/2019
We enjoyed our stay at The Contented Crane!
It was the perfect place to stay especially with small children! Tucked a few blocks away from Duval, our place was quiet, clean, and beautiful! It has a small heated pool in the back yard that we all enjoyed throughout our stay. The kitchen was well stocked, the rooms were beautiful, and everything was very clean! Beyond the four walls of the Contented Crane was the excellent service that Last Key Reality provided us. We can't say enough wonderful things about Monique and the top notch service she gave to our family during our stay. She was available to us during our entire trip to ensure we had everything we needed. We will absolutely use Last Key for our next trip to Key West!- Steph & Jay M , Posted: 02/20/2019
Location of condo is very good. Service levels fantastic. Monique and team took very good care of us.- Eric P , Posted: 12/31/2018
We arrived on 11/15 for a 3 night stay at the Contented Crane. The property was fantastic and met our needs perfectly. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms spacious and functional. The kitchen was well appointed with high end appliances and the common areas were comfortable to hang out and watch the game or a movie. A big plus is the heated plunge pool in the backyard that was great for an afternoon dip. Proximity to great restaurants and Duval are a huge perk as well. We can’t wait to go back. Monique Griffin was our Guest Services Coordinator for our stay. She communicated with us regularly leading up to our arrival and then got us settled as well as checked in periodically to ensure our stay was perfect. She immediately got a small maintenance issue addressed! We were in Key West to celebrate my birthday and she had really gone above and beyond by having balloons, a key lime pie and drink koozies with my friends names all there for us. If you are looking for a place to stay in Key West, look no further!- Anonymous S , Posted: 11/25/2018
Excellent time at this beautiful property
Beautiful, well appointed, comfortable property.- Jorge R , Posted: 07/17/2018
Loved the place
We stayed at the contented crane. Keith was very accommodating. Always quick to answer when we needed help with anything at the home. The small pool was perfect!! Loved that each bedroom Had it’s own bathroom. We will definitely use this accommodation again. Also close enough to Duval if you want some action.- Samantha L , Posted: 06/20/2018
Nice property with plenty of room. Had everything we needed and was well stocked with the essentials. We didn't bother to rent a car and enjoyed the central location, whether we were walking to the Southernmost beach, the marina, Duval Street, Mallory Square or Faustos on Fleming.- Hannah L , Posted: 03/20/2018
Beautiful place to stay
A wonderful place to stay, everything very well maintained. Keith was very helpful in all areas, we plan on returning with our families! Highly recommend staying here!!!- Elaine L , Posted: 11/17/2017
Great House Good Location!
This house had everything we needed with great style and comfort! It was our home away from home and exceeded our each and every need! Last Key Realty was easy to work with and made us feel welcome. All the bedrooms were spacious and had their own bathrooms-which was perfect for a ladies getaway! The kitchen was stocked and the mini pool was a perfect spot for a quick dip or afternoon hangout! Great spot within a short walk from everything! Would def love to come back and stay at the Contented Crane! Hope Irma was kind to her!- jaclyn f , Posted: 09/26/2017
Best Trip Ever!!!!
The property was beautiful, just as shown in the photos. It was the perfect spot for our group of girls. Also a lovely respite from the sun, and everything worked like clock work. Keith was fantastic! He called us before we arrived and was only a phone call away throughout our stay. He even dropped off a bottle of prosecco and a key lime pie to help us celebrate our bachelorette!! All in all, it was a fantastic stay and I would highly recommend Contented Crane and Last Key Rentals. Wish we could go back tomorrow!!!- Megan H , Posted: 08/03/2017
Great property and great concierge!
Fantastic location as well- Jesse H , Posted: 04/10/2017
Perfcet place to stay in Key West!
This place is better looking in person than the photos! It's an excellent location (couple blocks off Duval), quite area, parking in the back and the place is immaculate. The condo has all the high end details you would expect in a personal residence...high ceilings, large crown molding throughout, Viking appliances, granite countertops, hardwood floors, etc. And the property owners as very attentive you making your stay amazing. This will be the only place I stay when I return.- Eric H , Posted: 02/22/2017
This property was perfect for our stay in Key West. It is gorgeous and very well maintained, and provided four of us (two couples) with enough space to be together when we wanted and be alone when we wanted. It is within walking distance of everything that makes Key West heaven. The property manager (Keith) could not have been more gracious and helpful. We will definitely be back!!- Deborah J , Posted: 01/31/2017
Amazing stay, Amazing service
Stayed here at the Contented Crane and in the home next door - The Smiling Ibis recently with some friends. It was a great trip! The houses were beautiful, comfortable, and easy to relax in at the end of a long day out exploring the town. They are centrally located, and you can get anywhere you'd want to be with a short bike ride. The Property Manager, Lori, was amazing as well! She was incredibly helpful and very easy to get in touch with whenever I needed her. She met us at the houses as soon as we arrived, told us everything we needed to know about the properties, and gave us great recommendations for local restaurants, bars, shopping. She even called to reserve bikes for our stay. I can't imagine anyone being more helpful. If your looking to spend some time in key west I highly recommend you stay at these homes.- matt b , Posted: 07/29/2016
We had a great time staying in this home. It was very clean and nicely decorated. The beds were super comfy and the kitchen had everything we needed. The large grill was a big bonus and the pool, although a little small, worked fine for us. Lori was helpful and answered all of our questions. We were very close to Duval Street, but far enough away to have peace and quiet. We will definitely come back again soon.- t p , Posted: 07/29/2016
We really enjoyed our stay at this house. It was just as pretty as the photos showed and very clean. Nice to have 3 baths, so nobody had to share. We were able to cook, grill out and enjoy the pool. Thanks for a great time and we hope to come back again soon.- t h , Posted: 07/29/2016
Lovely, clean newly renovated condo
Our team stayed here during a sailing event and we were delighted with this accommodation. It was well appointed, clean, bright and welcoming. Lori was a great resource for us, and helped us maximize our visit.- laura , Posted: 07/29/2016
Very nice place
We ( 3 couples ) stayed here in February ,the house was very clean and well kept. The hose is in great location within walking distance to Duval St. And many local sites. We had the pool heated and it was great to come home to. Lori and the Last Key concierge were very accommodating. We would definitely stay here again.- mark r , Posted: 07/29/2016
Beautiful, Inviting Home, Centrally Located!
There was plenty of room for the six of us that rented this beautiful 3 bedroom home. The property is fully equipped, nicely maintained, clean and comfortably decorated. Lori Bailey, our Guest Services Coordinator was very helpful, friendly and knowledgable about the area. She along with Last Key Realty's Concierge Services were wonderful in recommending restaurants and answered any questions we had. They arranged for our bicycle rental delivery and pick up for the four days that we stayed and because of the great location of the home, we were able to ride to the beaches, restaurants and shopping during the day. We enjoyed the beach and lunch at the cafe at Southernmost Point, Fort Zachary Taylor State Park, the sunset at Mallory Square with live music and great entertainment from professional street performers. Dinner at Antonia's on Duval was one of our favorites. Dinner outside overlooking the water at The Hot Tin Roof after having cocktails and watching the sunset from Sunset Pier was great. Loved the lobster omelet and the eggs benedict with steak and lobster at Blue Heaven in Bahama Village while we listened to the live Caribbean music. The pizza, homemade pasta and service at The Onlywood Pizzeria and Trattoria on Duval was great. A friend recommended the all-dessert restaurant, Better Than Sex on Truman @ Simonton which was cute and the desserts were big enough to share. Overall I highly recommend this property, Lori Bailey and Last Key Realty when planning a visit to Key West! Looking forward to coming back!

Tropical paradise for our group
Our group needed some sun and warm weather. We got it all at this home. Lori met us and immediately made us feel like locals. We went to some great restaurants and bars. The pool was warm and the sun was hot! We even tried our hand at cooking some local seafood at home. This place was heavenly and we could not have asked for a nicer place to call home, for our Key West get away. Wish we could come back today.- k k , Posted: 07/29/2016
We only had a few days in Key West and this house had it all. Close to downtown and Duval Street. The rooms were comfortable and the pool was a good place to relax. Our guest manager Lori gave us great suggestions for dinners, seafood and some water sports. We all came home sunburned and happy. Good times and a great house!
- B F , Posted: 07/29/2016
Great vacation get away
This town house has such a great location. We biked all over downtown and Duval Street, then came home to enjoy the peace and quiet of this home. Our trip was too short to fit in all of the things we had planned. We will be returning next year for a longer stay. We plan to book this place or the one next door, which we came to find out is managed by Lori at Last Key Realty too.
- Mike A , Posted: 07/29/2016
A really great house to rent!
The pool was warm and the drinks were cold. We really enjoyed staying at this home. Close to downtown. Thanks again Lori.- Nick Z , Posted: 07/29/2016
Best house we rented in Key West
We were looking for a place to rent, for a short trip to Key West. This house fit the bill entirely. The location is perfect and it has off street parking. This is a huge benefit, if you have ever been to Key West. We have rented before from other companies, but this was the best one yet. We could walk downtown easily and leave our car behind. I would definitely rent this house again.- Chris H , Posted: 07/29/2016
The perfect get away!
This property was fabulous. My husband and I and 2 other couples stayed here for a week. The property was nicely furnished and had everything we needed. Great kitchen appliances for the cooks in the group! Every room had it's own king bed, bathroom and TV. We all felt it was in a perfect location. Within walking distance to Duval, great restaurants and entertainment. We spent several nights in grilling fresh seafood bought at a local market and preparing meals, we had everything we needed. We spent every afternoon sitting and relaxing by the pool. We were also extremely impressed with the attention that Lori, our guest services coordinator, gave us. She worked very hard to make sure that we had everything we needed, that everything was to our liking and that we had no questions unanswered. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend this property to anyone. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect week.- Tammy W , Posted: 07/29/2016
Convenient, clean and just so very perfect!
Our long day of driving to the Keys was rewarded when we stepped through the door of the perfect home! We had been looking forward to spending the week in Key West and the quality of this home and the central location certainly exceeded every expectation we had! The concierge services were great and our personal guest manager Lori made our Key West vacation wonderful, in every way possible. Thanks again and we look forward to yet another trip to Key West very soon!- B J , Posted: 07/29/2016
Such a beautiful home and super service!
Our family enjoyed this home very much! The inside and outside was spotless and the location was so convenient! We all were very comfortable with having our own bathrooms for each bedroom. The kitchen was very well equipped. We had everything imaginable to prepare some of our own meals. We really enjoyed eating at Conch Republic Seafood Company, Latitudes and Bo's Fishwagon as well. Lori made planning our vacation and our stay pure perfection! She was always available to answer questions for us and to recommend the "must do" things on the island. We loved the Butterfly Conservatory and Latitudes for lunch! I suggest Last Key and Lori to anyone looking for a perfect tropical vacation in Key West!!! We will certainly be back to stay with you again.- G L , Posted: 07/28/2016
Perfect stay in paradise
I really loved staying at this home with my lady friends. Lori greeted us with a warm smile and some great information on what we could do in Key West and the best places to eat and drink. We all had plenty of space to wind down and relax. This house is much larger than it looks from the outside. The private bathroom for every bedroom was a real plus for us. Our stay seemed all too short. We look forward to coming back to Key West again and highly recommend Last Key Realty.- L A , Posted: 07/28/2016
The 4 nights we stayed here were really great. We had parking for our van and a very nice home, just a few blocks from downtown. This was mostly a business trip, (WIFI was super fast BTW) but we will definitely be back again for a relaxing vacation. Last Key provided excellent customer service before and during and after our stay. Lori was so kind as to return a pair of prescription sunglasses to my wife, that we had left behind. We will certainly use them on future trips to Key West.- J M , Posted: 07/28/2016
Excellent home with great location
I would definitely recommend this home to everyone. Clean/modern with large bedrooms and private baths. Super location too. We received wonderful customer service during our stay.- Jon R , Posted: 07/28/2016
Super place...perfect for our group!!
The whole home was perfect. Beautifully decorated, close to the action of Duvall street, private, well-appointed. We were thrilled! We are a group of 6 women and can be very picky. Property manager, Shel and his assisdent, Keith, were very helpful and available if we needed them. Great customer service!!- Lori J , Posted: 07/28/2016
Q: Is soap and shampoo provided?- Ellen R. Posted: 04/06/2017A:Thanks for the message. No, we do not include toiletries in our homes as a standard - however, we can certainly have those available for you upon request should you let us know ahead of time!
