About The Owner

We are from NJ. When we first got married , we started visiting the keys on vacations and then when our children arrived we would take family vacations every year in Key West. As our needs grew- we ventured into Marathon and Islamorada known for its beaches, fishing, snorkeling and outdoor activities. We absolutley love the enviornment, the locals we have met over the many years and the warm welcome of the keys. Our favorite memory: is fishing with family on the reef and after a day in the sun and on the water, cruising in at sunset is so much fun! Enjoying the catch of the day on the dock with a glass of wine and family, friends - the fishing stories of the day are unsurpassed. Our days mull into one another in a relaxing tropical enviornment while we are here.

We ask if you visit: try leaving your cell phone on quiet, forget about the workday and the headaches it brings and enjoy what the Hammerhead Cottage has to offer. We built it with love, care and a great deal of thought for furnishings to anticipate our guests needs!ENJOY!

Everything we hoped for and more!

  • 5 of 5

Staying in Key Colony Beach after Irma was a little scary, BUT all was wonderful. Hammerhead Cottage was beautiful and ready when we went in January 2018. The house was spotless, the kitchen well very equipped and I cooked several dinners at the house, the canal was clean. We fished everyday, either in the canal being watched by Egrets and Pelicans or on the Marathon Lady (3 times). Walked to the cabana club and loved the pool, beach and the amazing service! Yea Bill!!! Don't miss the Early Bird dinner at the Key Colony Inn, also walkable, best deal and food in town!!! Very close to Sunset Park that is open ow too. The next door neighbors were wonderful which is always a plus!

We will definitely return to Hammerhead Cottage anytime we return to the Keys!

Everything they promised

  • 5 of 5

Our two week visit was amazing. The home was everything we could ask for. It was open and airy and had all the modern conveniences. The bedrooms were spacious with comfy beds. I enjoyed the morning sun each day sitting on the patio with my coffee. Husband swam at the club pool and enjoyed the club's beach while I visited daily the oceanfront park two blocks away. The location of Hammerhead was convenient for traveling to all of our adventures in the Keys. if we took a day off from sightseeing, we still felt the vacation vibe of the home. Thank you to the Bakers who made our stay a pleasant and relaxing vacation in Paradise.

Beautifully furnished, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at the Hammerhead Cottage! Key Colony Beach is the perfect base camp - in the middle of Marathon, great amenities (pool/beach), close to grocery/convenience stores, relaxing atmosphere and boat access to spectacular fishing. We got off to a bumpy start due to a snafu with the cleaning company. Natalie immediately took care of the issue!

The cottage is beautifully furnished and decorated - Natalie has exceptional taste. The house is well-stocked with just about everything you could possibly need during your stay. We rented a boat and having the dock, cleaning table and bait freezer at the house made our fishing excursions easy and carefree. The girls even fished right off the dock, catching a nurse shark and a barracuda!

We visited the Turtle Hospital (be sure to make reservations - they get busy), Sombrero Beach, and snorkeled at Sombrero Reef. Fishing was fun and we got lucky with some snapper!

We'll definitely be back!
