The Owner purchased this cottage in 1965
My father in law bought this property in '62 and absolutely loved fishing. It's the best fishing in the world. Whether you are fishing from our dock or out in the gulf or ocean. Our particular location has alot of advantages.One being always a breeze, no mosquitoes, afternoon shade, on a small bay with beautiful view and lots of convience to stores, restaurants etc.
We rented for 1 week at the end of October and were very happy with our trip. The unit is accurately described and is very user friendly. Excellent location and water frontage. We caught 19 different species of fish from the dock. Kayaks are like new and easy to use. Saw Manatees and a Bull shark. Very cool. Key colony is my favorite spot in the Keys. Traveled from Montana and can't wait to return.
We just got home from our stay here and figured we would share our experience. Overall we had an amazing stay and would definitely return. There were plenty of Pros, and a few Cons to this rental.
Pros- 1- The location was perfect. We never stayed in Key Colony Beach before and when we return we will definitely be staying there. There were a few great restaurants within walking distance, our favorite being Sparky's Landing which we went to 4 times. 2- Access to the Cabana Club was a huge bonus. It was great for the days you wanted to just lounge around and drink by (or in) the pool or go to the beach. The food and drinks there were all great and very reasonably priced. The beach there was also very well maintained and had very little if any sea grass. 3- THE BACK YARD!- The back yard was amazing and was perfect for fishing and sight seeing. We caught a ton of fish right off the dock like snapper, grunts, catfish, and a few others we couldn't identify. We were also visited daily by some manatee which the kids loved and saw sting rays, barracuda, and some Sargent Majors directly under the dock. We brought our kayak and paddle board and enjoyed nightly sunset paddles. 3-The property manager (Barry I believe) was extremely attentive to any issues we had and was over within minutes to help. 4-Garage storage space!- we couldn't find many other units that had this amenity and allowed us to store our bicycles and fishing equipment in.
5- Included a garage full of goodies to use including 3 kayaks, bicycles, tons of fishing equipment and tackle, life jackets etc. Everything was in much better shape than what we expected from a vacation rental. 6-The master bed was amazing. It was some sort of memory foam mattress and both my wife and I slept amazing while there. There was also an abundance of towels, linens etc, that were great.
Cons- 1- The toilet in the master bath was kind of wobbly. We were afraid we were going to tip over when we first got there but got used to it by the end.
2-the kitchen faucet is extremely loose and not well fitted. We were afraid it was going to rip off whenever we washed dishes or our hands. A simple tightening of the nut under the sink should fix it.
3- the couches in the living room are extremely worn and could be replaced. That being said they were very comfortable and I actually fell asleep on one the first night which I haven't done in ages.
The Pros definitely outweigh the cons for this unit and we will definitely ret
This home provides comfort view and convenience. We saw dolphin sting rays and a manatee from the pier. We used the kayaks bikes and fishing poles. What more can I say except I hated to leave.
We rented for a week and the location was great (middle of The Keys and near Marathon, plus the neighborhood of Key Colony Beach was lovely). The decor in the rental was tropical and tasteful, very homey. The kitchen and rest of the house were appointed well, so everything we needed was there. It was also great to have bikes and kayaks available. We loved being right on the water and the table on the patio was a great place to relax in the shade, which we wanted. It was a very good value. We would absolutely rent there again. LOVED IT!
This was our first year in Key Colony and we loved it! The house was just what we needed and looked exactly like the photos. Warm, inviting and CLEAN is what we felt when we walked in. We love being on the water and having
access a few doors down to rent a boat. We also loved having the Beach, pool and Sparky's waterfront restaurant/bar located close enough to walk. It was great having everything right there for you and if you need a little more entertainment, drive an hour and you are in KEY WEST! We are already excited about coming back next year. Also, it was nice to have access to their bikes, kayaks and fishing rods.
Upon arrival the unit was clean and ready to go. The appearance was cheery and very homey. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and available for questions. Also very well equipped kitchen. We would highly recommend this location.
