About Colleen R Jones

My husband and I live in Charlotte, NC when we are not in our wonderful island home in Islamorada. We want our home to be your home away from home, and will do everything in our power to make your stay easy, enjoyable and memorable. We visit our unit regularly to make sure everything is as it should be and in the best shape possible.

Colleen R Jones purchased this condo in 2016

Why Colleen R Jones chose Islamorada

We looked and looked all throughout Islamorada and Key Largo for the perfect place, and when we saw the size of the unit, plus the open floor plan, we knew this was the right place! Unparalleled sunrises with views onto the ocean, great amenities and friendly neighbors.

What makes this condo unique

There is always a breeze to go alongside the ocean at Seagulls, and having a beach, tiki huts, grills, steps into the water, tennis courts and heated swimming pool with lots of seating and shade makes Seagulls the perfect retreat. Our unit is spacious, flows nicely and is comfortable while at the same time elegant. It is the perfect location in the Keys, conveniently located just an hour south of Miami, and just under 1.5 hours north of Key West. All of the benefits of being on a tropical island with the conveniences of still being in the USA.

Great place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful week at the Seagulls condo in Tavernier. Everything was provided in the kitchen, bath, living room and bedrooms. We wanted for nothing! This is a great area...very central to Key Largo and Key West. Thank you to Colleen and Chris for being such great hosts!

Our stay at SeaGulls was great even with the ongoing clean-up from the hurricane..

They did a great job reconstructing the pool area and were working on restoring and improving the beach area. We hope to return again next winter.

Too old- very outdated and dirty.

  • 1 of 5

The condo unit was very outdated. The parking area was dirty and the whole place smelled like the rotten trash that was in the dumpster. The railing but the unit we rented was loose- it was coming away from the wall- very unsafe. The unit itself was clean and neat but also had some things that needed repairs- broken closet door that fell on us, ceiling tiles in bathroom fell on us three times! We enjoyed our stay because we love Islamorada but this was just not what we expected!

Owner's Response: We are so sorry you were disappointed with your stay in our unit. Our unit was remodeled around 2004, so we don't think it is all that outdated. Upon our arrival here a week later than your stay, we found no smell. The parking lot was under construction because once every 20 years, the building has to do some required testing to the building's fire suppression system--that is all complete now and the parking lot has been repaved. All of that is outside of our control as unit owners, and we're sure that as guests you would want all safety features of the building to have been tested to insure their good working order. We have notified the building manager about the loose railing and it will be taken care of--again, it is outside of our unit and beyond our control. We've owned our unit for over a year and never noticed it, and don't think it is unsafe, but it does wobble a bit. The "broken" closet door only falls out if yanked out with force, not with normal use. The tiles from the ceiling again, only fall out if they are touched with force--one was in fact broken and we have replaced it. Given your displeasure, and that we want everyone's stay in our unit to be an amazing week, we are looking at changing out all of the closet doors and removing the drop ceilings in the bathrooms. Thank you again for staying with us.

We really enjoyed our stay at Seagulls. The property was beautiful and the views were amazing.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week with our two children and had a great time. The condo had all the essentials that we needed. We loved being able to grill out right on the ocean and eat dinner under the Tiki hut. We took our paddle boards out right from the property and there was an amazing little island just off the beach that was so much fun to paddle too. The condo had all the essentials that we needed to enjoy our stay. Colleen was available for any questions or concerns that we had during the week which was very appreciated. All in all we had a wonderful time and we will certainly be back again!

Fabulous Place in Tavernier!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and 87 years-young mother could not have been more pleased with our stay at the Jone's condominium. The two bedroom unit was spacious, parking was easy, and the view of the Atlantic Ocean and Tavernier Creek Inlet was spectacular. We were also impressed with how well the unit was equipped---including everything you would need in the kitchen, beach towels and chairs, and even a fishing pole! Perfect place for a Florida Keys vacation! We highly reccommend Unit 407 as an alternative to renting a hotel room and look forward to visiting again in the near future.
