About the property

Single family , 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, private pool and tropical backyard

We have tried our best to get our home back as close to normal as possible after Miss Irma decided to spill her fury on us. I am happy to say that we are in great shape now. We do need a good growing season to help get some of our lushness back, but we will get there. In the absence of some of our shade trees we decided to build a good size tiki to add to the tropical feeling and to provide not just shade but to add an awesome outdoor dinning space. Come and enjoy our open, airy, tropical pool home in the “Jewel of the Florida Keys”, Key Colony Beach. This quaint Keys style home has original pine wood ceilings throughout with an open layout that makes it warm and welcoming for entertaining family and friendly.

You are just minutes from the dock to either the Atlantic or the Gulf, for a great day of fishing. You may just want to enjoy some fishing off the dock. The dock can accommodate up to a 25 ft. boat. The dock does have fish cleaning station,

There is a 55' TV in the living room as well as TV's in each bedroom and wireless internet access. The master bedroom has a king bed with ensuite bath and the guest room has a queen. There is a second bath with walk in shower.

Enjoy the large and open fully equipped Chef's Kitchen with breakfast bar, dining area, and as an added bonus enjoy outdoor dining in the screened in porch.

Relax in the secluded, backyard with your own private pool. There is a gas grill to cook up your fresh catch.

The backyard is your own very private tropical retreat, with its soft lighting at night making it the perfect spot for a night cap.

For your enjoyment there are 2 bikes for your use during your stay. There is a bait freezer located in the garage.

It is a very short walk or bike ride to the Cabana Club or any of the nearby restaurants serving up local seafood. Live music is also a short walkaway with local talent to help you enjoy your Island living experience.

Membership to the Cabana Club is included with rental. The

Club is a short 4 min. stroll away . The beach club has a 65 foot heated swimming pool and a perfectly manicured stretch of beach. Also a bar with beach service, snack bar with hot food. There is also a shower and changing facilities for your use.

Relax at your private pool or beach, or exercise by playing 9 holes of golf, tennis, bocci, pickleball, basketball, horse shoes, bike / walking paths. The perfect setting for your next vacation in the Florida Keys!

Key Colony Beach, a town right off the center of Marathon, is its own small island with a very quaint atmosphere. For your convenience there is a boat ramp located in Key Colony It is also a beautiful area that is very well maintained. Driving through you will see what a beautiful island it is and why so many people choose to stay in Key Colony Beach. It features a Sunset Park with an incredible view and a small pier. You may see families taking pictures during sunset or couples taking a romantic stroll. There are also great restaurants all over the island. Of course, being the Florida Keys, most of them are famous for their seafood. Key Colony has everything from casual outdoor dining such as Sparky's Landing to nicer indoor restaurants such as Key Colony Inn. You can sit and eat or go to one of the islands many bars.

Check out all of the amenities that this home offers and give us a call to plan your perfect vacation.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is a wonderful home to stay in. Very clean and well maintained inside and out. Nicely decorated. We have rented in KCB for 12 yrs. and this home is definitely one of the better ones to stay in. Everything you need for the kitchen and nice supply of "good" towels for bathrooms. Comfortable and attractive bedrooms. Outside pool area and landscaping very nice. Great screened-in porch for morning coffee and entertaining. Walking distance to Cabana Club and Breezes Restaurant. The bicycles and kayak are added features that you don't find in a lot of rentals. Great service from the owner when needed. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a really nice place to stay in KCB.

Beautiful home in great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully decorated home, and the backyard pool area is private and gorgeous! We’ve rented many homes and condos, and this has to be the most well-stocked place we’ve ever been! The kitchen has everything you could ever need, and there are lots of nice towels/wash cloths/hand towels in the bathrooms. We enjoyed the big TV in the den, and took advantage of the Netflix and on demand programs!

The beds are very comfortable, and the sliding glass door from the guest room to the screened in porch is really nice. It was great being on the canal so we could leave our wave runners right there at the dock. Plenty of space in the driveway and yard for the SUV and trailer.

We met some neighbors, who were so friendly! Just a great place. Excellent week in The Keys!

Beautiful home in a great location, very private setting with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This spacious two bedroom home is meticulously maintained and has everything you need for your vacation at Key Colony Beach. We loved the nice furnishings, open floor plan, and screened in porch. The pool is very private and the dock is convenient for fishing as well as bringing your own boat. It’s in a great location, just a few steps to the Cabana Club and a bike ride to Sunset Park. This home has everything you will need, including a washer and dryer. The closet is stocked with great linens and beach towels. We were grateful to have sand toys and bikes. Wifi was convenient, too. The owners communicated openly and in a timely manner. This is a special place and we were grateful to have stayed here.

A wonderful get away!

  • 5 of 5

Tina's "happy place" made us really happy too! It's located in the great community of Key Colony Beach. Just a short walk to a private beach club (our membership was included with our stay) giving access to a sandy beach - a rare thing in the Florida keys. A large public pool was included but we didn't use it because the private pool at the house was perfect (& private) for us. Two delightful parks are within walking distance, which worked out great for us and our pooch. We really like this central keys location making a trip to Key West or to Key Largo less than an hours drive. The house itself was fully equiped with everything we needed. The well appointed kitchen & the outdoor grill made fine dining at "home" as easy as pie. The bedrooms are large and comfy and outfitted with flat screen TVs. The house is on a great canal if you wish to bring a boat (less than 30') for quick ocean access. The backyard is beautiful with all sorts of tropical plants and mood lighting. At night, when the biting bugs get too bad, the screened in lanai is a great place to hang out, eat a meal, play a game of cards or whatever suits your fancy. The owners were as welcoming as we've every encountered and responded to all our calls and emails in a most timely manner. You will love this place. I recommend it highly!
