About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Pack your bags and enjoy Florida's most beautiful area! You don't need a passport to the American Caribbean - The Florida Keys!

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. The first guest bedroom has a king bed also and 26" flat panel TV and the 3rd bedroom has a king bed and a 32" flat panel TV. Our sunroom also has a queen sleeper sofa and 32" flat panel 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 away.

About Ann Wenger

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!

Ann Wenger purchased this house in 2010

Why Ann Wenger chose Central Florida Keys

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!

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

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.

Beautiful Home/Awesome Pool

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 spent a week here in June. Ann and Steve were very easy to work with and very quick to answer any questions. The home and pool were better than depicted. VERY roomy home for the 4 of us. The home was well stocked and very comfortable.

We rented a boat from Vacation Boat Rentals in KCB for the week and docked it at the house. Very easy access to ocean. Had a fun day down in Key West but otherwise hung out in Marathon. It had everything we needed for the week. Especially loved the pool. Was nice to just jump in after being out in the boat all day. Soooo refreshing. Thanks Ann and Steve. Hope to return soon.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this lovely home for a week in May. We brought our boat and the dockage was perfect with easy access to The Atlantic and the Gulf. Great curb appeal, beautifully landscaped. The home is very comfortable with all of the necessities. The pool is fabulous. We even grilled our own fresh caught fish on the gas grill provided. We have been considering retirement in the Keys. Key Colony is a perfect community for retirement!! Every person we came in contact with was hospitable and more than accomadating.

Family vacation, adults, teens, and dog

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property. Lovely home, good layout, very well maintained, and with wonderful pool and dock area. Location in Key Colony Beach is perfect. Great for walking, biking and with nearby waterfront parks and restaurants. Several good restaurants with large outdoor seating areas that are dog friendly. A marina and charter fishing opportunities are also right there on Key Colony. This is also the perfect spot on the Florida Keys. From here, you can easily visit the other Keys and Key west is only about an hour away. The property owner was very nice and helpful as was the management company. This property will be at the top of our list for future vacations to the Keys.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! Each year that we stay for our vacations we make some sort of improvement to the home. This year was making the front bedroom which had a queen bed and pocket doors into a king bedroom with a regular door. It changed the whole feel of the room and knew our renters, family and friends would appreciate it. Thanks for choosing our place for your getaway. We hope you return in the future.
