About The Owner

Year Purchased: 1965

This duplex has been in our family since the 60's. It's the best location in the area for fishing, boating, walking to restaurants etc.Only minutes by boat to the ocean or gulf. Our patio faces the bay and we have a wonderful view with nice breezes. Just a two minute walk to Sparky's Landing for great food and entertainment. Also, Cabana Club with pool, ocean, bar, live entertainment is a ten minute walk away. Key Colony Inn also is a ten minute walk away and has the best food around......WE LOVE IT.....

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon. Great location just off Highway 1 in a quiet area. Key Colony Beach is in the center of the keys, so it's close to everything. We had a nice view of the sunrise every morning. It was very clean and well maintained. You can rent a boat just a few doors away, and plenty of good restaurants near by. My only complaint is that the bed was uncomfortable, but I would still stay there again. Highly recommend!

10th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of this vacation. The unit was just as it was shown in the photos. The weather was perfect for sitting out from daylight (drinking our coffee and enjoying the sunrise) until dark, watching the sunset in our private area just a few feet from the water. Having the dock right there was perfect for the boat we rented just past the unit. Having a washer/dryer was perfect. Everything was clean. Sparky's was great!!!Best Grouper sandwich and Key Lime Pie!!! Hope to be back next year. Mike-n-Beth

Perfect Location, Views and Conveniences

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to rejuvenate! The location allows you to enjoy many conveniences within walking distance. I loved walking or biking to the Cabana Club, Sunset Beach and Sparky's...which has the best Key Lime Pie in all of the Keys. The inside was very cozy with a washer/ dryer and a very nice newly renovated bathroom. The best part of the house is the waterfront patio which is the ideal place to begin your day enjoying the morning sun and a cup of coffee while observing the wildlife on the bay. I am dreaming of my next trip back! Thank you for sharing you slice of paradise!

Nice Spot

  • 4 of 5

We rented for a winter getaway. The place is easy to locate and situated right up the road from Sparky's restaurant - where they have the best Happy Hour around. The rental was clean and just right for 2 people. The neighborhood is a great place to take a morning run or walk. The Cabana Club was a nice place to hang out by the pool and ocean - and enjoy the tropical life.

Nice place to be if you would like a spot to unwind and relax!
