This home is a spacious and beautifully decorated ground-level pool home on the "preferred" side of the 100' wide clear canal. This 3 bedroom and 2 bath home is clean and tastefully decorated for your relaxed vacation in the Key Colony Beach. A well stocked kitchen for the cook in the family and a 50" plasma internet TV in the great room for the couch potatoes. Keep your boat outside the door at our large STEPDOWN dock with water, electricity and fish cleaning table and bait freezer (in garage). Parking for your boat trailer on premises. There's a gas grill to prepare your fresh catch!

You can enjoy your own pool right outside. You can also access a private beach (Inch Beach) just a short walk away. An ocean view is out the front window.

The open living area has 2 reclining sofas and a 50" internet TV. It is open to the kitchen, dining room and sunroom.

The master bedroom has a private bath with dual sinks and a shower. It is furnished with a king bed and TV.

And of course we have Wi-Fi.

Key Colony Beach is only 2 hours from Miami and only 1 hour from Key

West. It is centrally located in the Keys so it's just a short trip

to visit the other islands, and the 7 Mile Bridge is just minutes

About the Owner

We are a couple from Ohio who started vacationing in Marathon in the mid-90's. Then we discovered Key Colony Beach and knew it was the place we wanted to have a vacation home. We bought our first home in January of 2001 and have traded up a couple of times to get to this home where we are going to stay!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Plenty of good fishing and weather and we were able to spend some quality time with our son and his new wife. Looking forward to coming back next year for another couple of weeks. Since going to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba two years ago, this is the only thing I have to look forward to each year and really appreciate the comfortable accommodations afforded to us. I left several pieces of sea glass I picked up at the beach the day I left Gtmo and placed them under the glass table in the sunroom. Thanks by all & best wishes.

Fantastic vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
This home was perfect for our family. It was beautifully and comfortably decorated, with a large great room where we all could sit together to watch the big screen TV. The home was clean and spacious, with a well tended pool and landscaping leading to a wide deep water canal with quick, easy access to both the Atlantic and Gulf. We brought our boat and had no problem launching at a nearby ramp or docking it at the house. We were permitted to bring our two small (5 & 7 pound) dogs who had a blast there! (Thank you for tile floors!). I highly recommend this lovely home in Key Colony Beach. It is perfect!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and thanks for sharing your experience. We fell in love with the location and spacious, open living of this home, inside and out. The tile floors throughout is a must for a pet-friendly home since we also have 2 small dogs. We have added large palms in 2014 to enhance privacy. It's our goal to make this a clean and inviting place you enjoy during your initial visit and hope it becomes your vacation destination in the years to come! Thanks again for posting.

This is a beautifully appointed and comfortable Key Colony Beach home which is located in the quiet section of the neighborhood and a short walk to Sunset Park and Inch Beach. May was ideal temperatures for enjoying the salt water pool and the beach. There was very little seaweed on Sombrero beach or crowds of people. The sunroom
is a delight overlooking the pool and canal. The local restaurants are delicious and Sparky's Landing prepared our fish caught from the charter fishing trip. Thank you for great memories.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review and for choosing our place for your vacation. We are always making improvements to make this vacation home a place you'd want to stay again. After you left, we added a raised paver patio next to the sunroom. This addition affords yet another place to relax or dine. We love this home!

Paradise in every way

  • 5 of 5
We have enjoyed this home for three years now and are more impressed each time we stay. This home is furnished very nice and is always extremely clean. The pool is an added bonus after a hard day of fishing and snorkeling. The Gulf and Atlantic are super close and plenty of space for our boat. This home is in one of the nicest communities in the Keys and is patrolled by local police throughout the day and night, We go for the fishing and water activities and its so hard to leave after our week is up. Our kids call it there home away from home.. The owners of this home are very nice and you can tell they really want you to enjoy your stay and ask each time if there is any improvements that are needed. I would highly recommend this home for anyone you wont be disappointed!!

We were elated to have found this beautiful home for our 2 week trip to the Keys. Our frequent visits to the Keys are focused on fishing in the spectacular waters surrounding the island chain. While the weather was unusually windy and wet for this particular trip (tropical storm Andrea brewing in the vicinity), Ann's immaculate home helped to greatly ease the mental duress we endured waiting for the wind and rain to clear.
On arrival there was a long, wide driveway in front of the garage. We opted to store our boat trailer off of the driveway in a convenient fine-gravel area on the opposite side of the lot - very convenient for boaters. Exteriorly the house appeared to be secure and well-maintained with attractive landscaping, including a lime tree loaded with fruit.
Inside, the house was clean top to bottom. The kitchen was fully equipped with far more pots, pans, utensils, glasses and dinnerware than we typically see in home rentals. The 3 bedrooms were spacious with large, comfortable beds and crisp linens. Both of the baths were meticulously clean, bright and comfortable. Tons of seating in the living room area with top-notch furnishings. Decorations were very nicely done.
The dock was clean and in great shape with easy access for our 24 foot bay boat, and about a 4 minute trip to Vaca Cut. While we couldn't get out on our boat as often as we wanted, we managed to catch several keeper mangrove snapper off of the dock.
This was truly a wonderful house in a great location and we would love to visit again. We just need to install a "Control Your Own Weather" app on our smartphones next time to keep the occasional bad-weather bugs away :-)

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the glowing review! Despite the unusually wet weather, I'm happy that you enjoyed your stay. This home is also our getaway destination so it is equipped with everything we need when we head to the best vacation spot in FL - Key Colony Beach. I hope you return soon and be sure to share that weather app with me!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
Beautifully decorated home! My husband, myself and our four girls had a great time. We spoke with the owners, met their friends in the neighborhood and spoke with the pool boy. We were very blessed to have found such a wonderful place to stay, as it was our first time renting.

Spring Vacation

  • 5 of 5
The house had a wonderful location. We were able to walk or ride bikes to the restaurants located on the island as well as the beach. Being able to go to Inch Beach instead of drive to a beach was great. Although the weather earlier in the week was not great, we were still able to hang out by the pool when the sun was out. Sunset Beach was a walk away, and we went almost every night to watch the sunset. Key Colony Beach is a beautiful island.

From the Owner

This home was exactly what we were looking for in a vacation home. We wanted single story because how many times have you gotten in the boat and forgotten something and have to run back to the house? Plus, we aren't getting any younger. It has an open floor plan, large master and rooms large enough for guests. Of course there is the dock where we keep our boat and still have room for another 30' boat. We love the pool and have made many, many upgrades to the backyard and the pool area. The neighborhood and proximity to Sunset Park, Inch Beach and all that Key Colony Beach has to offer sealed the deal for us!

From the Owner

Privacy! This home has no neighbors to one side and the other side has a home with lots of palms and plantings. We added a row of Areca Palms to provide extra privacy. There is no home across the street either. We have a large yard and driveway so there is plenty of room for your trailer (1 allowed per property in KCB) and extra vehicles.
