Kens Cozy Conch Key Cottage
Conch Key Central Florida Keys

Had an Excellent Experience!

  • 5 of 5
Truly a "turn-key" vacation. The cottage was very comfortable and the hammocks under the chickee hut were our favorite spot. We prepared meals inside and also on the backyard grill. We enjoyed taking the kayaks out and watching the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. The island was very quaint with a private beach for residents and close enough to Islamorada and Marathon that we could get away for drinks or groceries. Ken's hospitality was First Class. He made sure we had everything we needed. We will be telling friends and family and we will definitely be back. A Home away from Home.

My wife and I had a great stay at this nice little cottage between Islamorada and Marathon. The house backs up to a short canal that allowed us access to the water and the ability to watch the sea life, including a manatee. The kayaks and the skiff were a great way to get out on the water.

The house was well set up and the kitchen fully stocked for cooking. There is a small store on the Key for supplies.

We spent time at the state parks on both Islamorada and Marathon and the drive was not too long.

My husband and I spent one wonderful, too short week at Ken's adorable, comfy, cozy cottage. Situated on a canal just a stone's throw from open water, this charming place "has it all." Excellent boating, canoeing, an ample hardscape backyard complete with Tiki hut, hammocks and old Florida charm. We spent a great deal of time out back just relaxing and watching the wonderful sunsets. Marathon and all it has to offer is just minutes away, so grocery shopping is simple and plentiful. Oh! You'll find FRESH lobster available right next door from the lobstermen themselves! And, keep your camera ready...manatees "visit up close and personal!!" a real thrill.

Ken's Cottage is the perfect spot to explore all that the Keys have to offer. My wife and I spent a great week seeing the sights/attractions/points of interest from Everglades NP to Key West.

The cottage was very comfortable and had pretty much everything we needed. The canal-side tiki hut was our favorite spot as it afforded us numerous opportunities to watch the fishermen come and go, plus observe the pelicans, fish, and manatees. Conch Key is quiet, peaceful, and close to everything you need for a great stay in the Keys.

We did not have a bad meal at any of the many restaurants we frequented. The best fish sandwich I've ever eaten was at the Lorelei Cafe in Islamorada. In Marathon be sure to eat at The Lazy Days Cafe and Keys Fisheries Restaurant. Evelyn's Cafe in Key Largo was an unexpected pleasant surprise on our drive north to Miami.

Ken's Cottage was all we needed (and more) for a very affordable, enjoyable stay in The Keys. If, and when, we return we will definitely stay there again. Thanks, Ken!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at Kens Conch Key Cottage. The Cottage was very clean and cozy. The photos do not do it justice. My husband and our two teen age boys were very comfortable there. Loved the hammocks out back under the tiki hut. Great location for seeing the keys. Spent one day at the beach, another day in Key West but enjoyed the cottage so much that we were happy just spending our time there. We purchased live lobster right next door! Everyone on the island that we met were very nice. There is a great little convenience store within walking distance so if you forgot to bring something you did not have to leave the island. Would highly recommend this property. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

Activity and Interests

Beaches and state parks are close by. Hawks Cay resort, just around the corner offers a wide variety of water activities such as jet ski rental, para-sailing, powerboats rentals, and fish or dive charters. Lobstermen and local fishing guides with private charter boats are your neighbors and are happy to book a days activities also. Fishing and diving are excellent and we are well situated with immediate bay and ocean access by boat. We have on many occasions caught our lobster dinners by snorkeling immediately around the island. Watching the nieghbors bring in thier daily fresh catch of fish, lobster, stone crabs, and tropical fish for aquariums is very interesting, and purchasing fresh caught from the nieghbors for your meal if you don't catch your own.
