About Mar & Ed Lewis
We live in Ohio and started coming to Key Colony Beach in 2009. We rented for two weeks, then three weeks, three weeks again, then six weeks...then we bought!
Mar & Ed Lewis purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Mar & Ed Lewis chose Key Colony Beach
Marathon is almost dead center in the beautiful Florida Keys, with Key Largo and Key West each about fifty miles in either direction. Marathon has plenty of shopping and restaurants nearby. Key Colony beach is a secluded island just off of Marathon. It offers beaches that can be hard to find along the Keys. KCB is peaceful, secluded, and secure. There are some good restaurants in KCB if you don't want to leave the island.
What makes this Condo unique
Our unit is in the building located right on the beach. If you exit the building in one direction, you step out onto the beach. If you exit the other way, you're at the pool. The tiki hut and two large grills are only steps away, too. You can eat at any of a large number of restaurants, you can grill at the Tiki hut, or you can prepare your meals inside the condo.
Smoking permitted outside of condo.
Rental occupancy is limited to four incl infants
Cleaning fish not permitted
100% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.
Last Minute Trip To The Keys
Great last minute find in The Keys! We literally ended up booking the night before our arrival, and Ed was quick to respond and make sure that we had all of the information we needed!
The 2 bedroom/2 bath unit was nicely decorated, had plenty of kitchen necessities (pots, pans, dishes, etc.), comfortable furniture and super comfortable beds! The balcony off of the master bedroom had a nice view of the ocean that we enjoyed every day. The private beach is small but BEAUTIFUL, with lots of shallow water that we found to be great for snorkeling! We saw tons of fish and found lots of pretty shells each day! The complex is centrally located in The Keys which made it easy to venture out and do a little sightseeing along the islands. This was a great “home away from home” for our weeklong vacation. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely condo with us! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Gretchen, thank you for the kind words about our condo and beautiful Key Colony Beach! We fell in love with the area when we first saw it, too. We are SO happy that Dorian didn't decide to cut your week short! Take care and come on back soon!

Marvelous and so much more!
Sea Isle and KCB are the perfect partners for a Keys experience. I didn’t realize until I checked in that I had stayed in your lovely condo 6 years ago when I brought a dear friend and her granddaughter for a first keys visit. This time I also had a girlfriend who was a 1st time Keys visitor. With family in the area I am blessed to make frequent visits, but in both of these instances Sea Isle was the perfect spot to bring first time visitors. We enjoyed everything - pool, beach, bbq area, visits to DRC, Key West and the best of sunsets everyday. The condo was beautifully stocked, decorated and the walk in master shower was heavenly. I would absolutely book again when opportunity arises. Thank You for all the care you take to ensure the perfect place to stay in Paradise. L Russo Vanceboro NC
Thank you very much for the kind review!
This was our first family trip to Florida with a 12 and 16 year old. The condo was roomy and had everything we needed. The master bedroom has a deck that enjoys a great view of the ocean. We had coffee every morning and enjoyed the view of the water. Every day staff was on property cleaning the pool and maintaining the grounds. We also took advantage of the grills on most nights. Other residents are pleasant and ready to help. Our vacations are important for our family and this was a great memory for us.
Thank you very much for the kind review!
Fabulous apartment in an amazing setting

Jenny, thank you for your review! We appreciate the five star!
Wonderful Family Place to Stay
Ed and Mar's place is wonderful! The condo was immaculate when we arrived with our grandchildren. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. Our grandkids loved their room and they are teenagers. My wife was amazed at what was available in the kitchen. She didn't cook since we were on vacation, but she said if she wanted to, anything she would need was there. We loved that it was decorated in a seascape kind of way, yet had comfortable couches. The grandkids loved the iguanas that would walk around from time to time. It's a very family oriented place. We met one family who has been coming down for 11 years. My wife really enjoyed sitting on the balcony reading. It was really nice having tv's in the bedrooms and in the main living area. They weren't used often. The internet worked great, it only went out once for about 5 minutes when a storm came through but we live in Florida so we are used to that.
The location is really nice, right in the middle of the keys, 50 mile from Key Largo and 50 miles from Key West approximately. There are snorkeling tours, party or charter fishing boats and an aquarium about a half mile south of Key Colony Beach causeway on route 1.
Many nice restaurants close by too. We liked the Island Fish Company just north of the causeway. There was also a little family owned place called Fish Tales Market Eatery that is right by the Marathon Lady party boat (just south of the causeway). Rustic with real good food.
We loved our stay there and plan on booking it again. We have stayed in many places, but Ed and Mar's place has been the best!
Michael, thank you so much for your kind review!
Everything was as described, great location with very friendly condo owners in the complex. Larger than expected and plenty of room for our family of 4 to spread out
