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!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2012

Why The Owner chose Central Florida Keys

Key Colony Beach is truly a gem of a community in the heart of Marathon. with its close proximity to airports, the ever so famous: Seven Mile Bridge, Bahia Honda State Park, Sombrero Beach and many other places to see.

What makes this cottage unique

You can ride or walk to the beach. We are located a block from Sunset Park- which has the most amazing sunsets off the pier.

You can walk, jog or take your dog out and stop at LeeAnn's coffee shop for your local cup of brew.

Bring your clubs and walk to the golf course and get in nine holes before going for a swim at the Cabana Club.

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!

We just returned yesterday from a great vacation in the Florida Keys! The cottage was wonderful and plenty of room for 4 adults! We enjoyed fishing from the dock and just relaxing in the sun. The cottage was beautifully decorated and had all the necessities of a your home away from home. We especially enjoyed the cabana pass for access to a pool, hot tub and really nice beach! Thanks for sharing your beautiful cottage with us for 10 days!

Wonderful Week at the Hammerhead Cottage !

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation at the Hammerhead Cottage in June 2014- we had been to the Keys many times but this was our first time staying in Key Colony Beach. The cottage was just as described in the VRBO description and reviews - beautiful furnishings, open design, and very convenient and comfortable.

We had breakfast and lunch at the cottage and ate out for most of our dinners. Sparky's Landing at the Key Colony Beach harbor offered an excellent varied menu and was reasonably priced - the portions were large so we brought home enough for lunch the next day. Also enjoyed a sunset dinner at Lazy Days - great food and very scenic location.

We are scuba divers and dove each morning with Abyss Divers, which was right around the corner. Afternoons we often napped, read and relaxed in the cottage - perfect !

The owners were very responsive to the question or 2 we had. We hope to return in 2015 !
