Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

It is One of the Best Beaches in the World and it's private!

Airline deals start August 22 and go to December 19...car rentals are very cheap as well. The reason is the kids are back in school. I can help you find your flight and rental car deals.

Palm trees, tropical plants, sunshine will surround you in Paradise. Your white sand beach is private (not open to the public) The property has a Tiki Hut at the waters edge where you can BBQ (the fish you caught) on the gas grill and dine with your family or companion. Watch Dolphin Play just 20 yards off our shore.

The heated pool is also a great place to relax. The property was totally renovated and landscaped, completed in 2008. My condo has also been renovated with a fully stocked kitchen, GE products and corian tops.

The master bedroom has it's own bathroom, king bed, flat-screen TV and balcony with a beautiful view of the ocean. The second bedroom has 2 double beds and flat-screen TV. The condo was professionally decorated with all new furniture including mattresses/bedding.

There are many great local restaurants where you can dine on the water. Most people love to visit the Dolphin Research Center where you can swim with the dolphins or watch the Show. Or you can take a 50 minute ride to Key West and spend the day checking out Museums, Art Galleries and many other attractions.

About Michael

My wife and I have three boys that have enjoyed the Keys for years. Back home we are kept very busy with multi-sports activities and school. When we are in the Keys we do everything together fishing, dolphin encounters, snuba dive/snorkel. We also enjoy outstanding water-front restaurants and sitting on the beach talking/relaxing.

Michael purchased this condo in 1998

Why Michael chose Key Colony Beach

The first time we vacationed at Sea Isle Condominiums in Key Colony Beach was back in 1996. At the time we had 2 boys (now we have a 3rd) It was the best vacation we ever had. We booked the following year and again, it was outstanding. When a condo came on the market we decided to purchase it...that was in 1998. My family absolutely loves the time we spend in the Keys...we have great memories!!!

What makes this condo unique

We have one of the best white sand beaches in the world! It's private and safe. We have seen all kinds of Sea life on our beach including dolphin and manatee. The ocean is crystal clear...great for snorkeling. The tiki hut on the beach has gas grills and tables for dining on the water. Our pool is large and heated. The property is beautifully landscaped with colorful tropical plants and bushes.

The Fabulous Beach is just what my family needed!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 including 2 teenagers rented this condo in Key Colony Beach. It was everything we wanted. The condo was very clean and furnished beautifully with all we needed to cook healthy meals and enjoy all of the comforts of home. After a full day of activities and dinner it was so nice to watch a movie on Netflix. The living room had about a 50 inch TV and the bedrooms each had about a 30 inch flat screens. It is a 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom condo. We felt right at home.

The private beach is truly the best and it takes literally 45 seconds to walk from the condo to the beach. We loved the beach-side tiki hut with gas grills and tables that we used for a few family cook-outs. We sat and talked for hours. The kids had the best of both worlds with the pool and beach so close to each other. The owner provides a zayak for kids to use in the ocean, it’s fantastic. My husband and I enjoyed sitting on the balcony every morning with our coffee admiring the beautiful blue water.

Condo was minutes away from a variety of ocean-side dining, shopping and great activity options. the Dolphin Research Center, Aquarium Encounters, the Turtle Hospital, Dive shops, snorkel trips, water sports, and other area beaches and fishing venues if you wanted a change of scenery or activity. It’s only an hour drive to Key West for a day trip.

The owner was very accommodating and quick to respond. He provided a list of great restaurants and fun local activities, always available for advice. This rental hits the mark in every category! It was a fantastic break and we will book again next January.

Very nicely updated and maintained property

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The complex is well maintained and the condo itself is updated very nicely. The building is not on the beach, it's one removed and on the pool, so there aren't really beach views. That said, it's really just a few steps to the beach. For our group (parents and 2 adult daughters) it was a good place. Quiet and spacious.

We unwittingly went between lobster mini-season and the beginning of the commercial season. The city of Key Colony Beach and (according to the lobster rules & regulations card we picked up) most of the middle keys prohibits diving and snorkeling within 300 feet of any improved property during this time. So we were a bit disappointed to discover that when we arrived. Just be aware of lobster season...

Key Colony Beach is a quiet place and right next to Marathon. If you're into snorkeling cruises (which we are) and fishing it's a great place. You're just about an hour from Key West as well.

Mike was very responsive and pleasant. Kudos to him for his attention to tenants.

Owner's Response: John, Thank you for your review. After a little research I found this rule for Key Colony Beach snorkelers during Mini Lobster Season. (see below) The reason for the rule is to prevent illegal poaching of lobsters. You can swim, kayak, and enjoy the other water activities on our private beach during mini lobster season. The 2018 Mini lobster season starts July 25th. Best Regards, Michael “Diving and snorkeling prohibited 4 days prior to opening of mini-season until 10 days after opening of commercial season in navigable canals, marinas and within 300 feet of shoreline.”

Beach great!!!

  • 4 of 5

I usually rent a house with a pool and dock that's just better for our family. But bc of how cheap the price of condos is I gave it a try. Our family gets up early and runs all day. When we get back to rented place it's about dark or is already. We all get showers then adults cook while kids play in pool, at a condo your not aloud in pool after dark. This is the main reason for not liking the place. The beach was fabulous, grills and all the chairs were very nice. Location was excellent. Not having laundry in rooms was a little inconvenient but ok, a big disappointment was the kitchen, I couldn't peal a potato with any of the knives, there was not enough big pots plus what they did have was all scratched and rusted. We made do though. The guy we rented from was very nice and checked in with me several times.

Owner's Response: Wendy, I appreciate your feedback. I apologize for not finding the damaged/missing cookware prior to your arrival. Sadly, the previous guest did not notify us about the damage to the cooking items. I replaced the pots with a full set of stainless steel cookware and utensils. Due to insurance regulations our pool is listed closed at nightfall. Raising three sons we would love if the pool was open later into the evening…on occasion my sons would push the envelope. The washers and (gas) dryers are in the laundry room located next to the pool. The condo buildings themselves do not have a gas service. Our laundry room does have gas service for the dryers. I provide the laundry detergent for my guests. We have been hosting guests in our vacation rental since 1998. Our goal is to create a truly unique vacation experience for each and every guest. We strive to create wonderful memories and friendships for every guest. I provide all of my guests with my cell phone number that I can be reached on 24/7 for any questions or issues that may
