Paradise on the Water

  • 5 of 5

We were travelling with our two young Sons, and we absolutely loved the place. We were minutes from Sombrero, Seven Mile, and Bahia Honda. The boys caught Mangrove Snapper, and Jack right off the back dock. We paddled the Kayaks over to Sparky's to get bait and Chow. Great place, great trip.

We stayed in this half duplex for two weeks near end of April 2018. We have been visiting the Keys since 2009 to fish and get out of the nasty winters in the Pacific Northwest.

We always want a view of the water and this property has a great view of water and sunrise.

Nice things about this place other than the views are the kayaks are in great shape, Sparky's is a short walk. The Cabana Club has a pool and small sandy beach within a 15 minute walk, gas barbecue, close to shopping. Also the price is great, have stayed in places 2 to 3 times the cost. Owner has several notes around unit with tips on how to operate appliances and TV, follow them.

Only downside I found on this trip is there are 3 bikes but the woman's bike has a couple of issues that need to be addressed, the seat likely needs to be replaced as it rocked backwards, also the chain fell off.

We have been vacationing in Key Colony for 7 years. If you want to stay at a place like Donald Trumps

Mar-A- Largo , don't stay here. If you want to stay at a place that lets you enjoy the Cabana Club, Sunset Beach, Bonefish Bay ( in your backyard), restaurants in walking distance, clean and comfortable acomodations, use of bikes, fishing tackle and Kayaks then speak with Denise Samuels the owner. Denise is friendly and acomodating like her rental property. We were there this year for one week. We'll be back next week for three weeks. That says it all.

Great location and fabulous fishing

  • 5 of 5

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.

Plenty of Pros, a few Cons

  • 4 of 5

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

Can't beat it

  • 5 of 5

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.
