Breezy half-duplex w/35 ft dock. Includes Cabana Club access w/ pool & beach

That tropical island getaway you've always wanted is here at this waterfront Key Colony Beach vacation home. Ideal for your large family, kids and adults alike will appreciate its 35-foot dock, close proximity to the ocean, and exclusive membership to the Cabana Club, which offers a swimming pool, a bar and lounge, and even its own beach!

Whether you prefer your adventures on land or sea, you'll find plenty of fun-filled activities on the island. Head out with a sport fishing charter to reel in trophy marlin, tarpon, bonefish, and other native fish species, work on your golf swings just steps away at Key Colony Beach Golf Course, or sample fresh seafood cuisine at Sparky's Landing, Havana Jack's, or the Tarpon Creek Bar and Grill. There's so much offered here, your only dilemma is what to do first!

This half-duplex home provides a peaceful refuge from the hustle and bustle of modern living. You'll certainly appreciate the well-manicured residential neighborhood in which it resides, a quiet and comforting area to come home to after a full day of watersports, beach-going, or exploring the other Keys connected by the Overseas Highway.

Settle in for an afternoon of cable TV watching or group game playing in the living room, and flip on the overhead fan to circulate the air. Through sliding glass doors, head onto the outdoor balcony for relaxing views of the tropical landscape below, complete with swaying palm trees and a canal. Walk down a staircase and over to the dock where you can swim, paddle out on a kayak, or hop on a boat and find yourself in the Atlantic Ocean in minutes flat.

When you've worked up a hefty appetite, rest assured you'll find everything needed for quick and easy meal prep in the full kitchen. Whip up fresh seafood cuisine and bring locally-sourced ingredients to life on modern appliances, then serve up the fresh catch-of-the-day at the breakfast bar or at the nearby six-seat dining table. You could also enjoy that meal with a calm breeze on the outdoor balcony. Also, don't worry about bringing extra cooking equipment - you'll have a variety of kitchen accoutrements to get the job done right.

If the weather calls for it, why not have a barbecue? Simply fire up the gas grill on the dockside patio, crack open a favorite beverage, and let the good times roll!

Adding even more options for local fun, the membership perks of the Cabana Club will keep your family entertained all day. Relax on loungers at its shared pool, soak up sun rays on its white sand beach, and order up a frosty cocktail with an enticing snack at its poolside bar and lounge.

Thanks to four bathrooms you won't have to fight over your mirror time, and you also can pack light thanks to the washer/dryer. Don't worry, you won't go without air conditioning or an Internet connection while you're here - the home is equipped with both central A/C and high-speed WiFi.

This home is also conveniently situated for a number of fun day trips. Get up-close views of playful sea life at the Dolphin Research Center (a family-friendly activity that's sure to be a hit with your kids!) seven miles north in Marathon, or venture out on a kayak tour of the wild coastline surrounding Curry Hammock State Park (three miles north). You'll find several beaches on the islands, but a few of the best are Sombrero Beach (seven miles south) and the sandy shores at Sunset Park (on the island, less than a mile southwest).

Experience the best of Key Colony Beach with a stay at this breezy vacation home. Book it today and start planning your sun-soaked adventures in the Florida Keys!

Great house for large families on the canal with plenty of parking!
Richard P. Sep 2018
The house is very spacious for a family or friends trip and the 4 separate bathrooms is a great feature. I was surprised to see all the bedding was updated from the original photos shown. Newer style bed sheets were nice! However, the downfalls were broken items in the house. Bend bed frame wheel on one of the twin beds (maintenance did come fix), 3 toilets in the house continuously ran, the hose bib on our side did not work and did not have a hose so we had to use the neighbors to wash off dive gear, grill was very dirty with residue built up and the dock area was maybe under condition or just a temporary fix because there was a large section with plywood and a missing piling. We would stay again in the future, just recommended some upgrades and fixes to be done.

This house has lots of room for a group of guys to stay for a fishing trip. But the property does have some issues. I stayed there with my parents and two young children. The kitchen counters and floor had spills on them when we arrived (but the local property manager did offer to refund half of the cleaning fee to make up for it). The carpet in the bedrooms is stained, soiled, and torn in several places. Our feet would be dirty if we walked around the house without shoes. Some of the tubs had no plugs so you couldn't use the tub for bathing children. The electrical outlet under the house in the parking area wasn't working, but the tenant on the other side allowed us to use one of theirs so that we could plug up a bait freezer.

But....the house has lots of room for a large group. And the price is lower than several other smaller properties around. The views from the balconies are beautiful. We saw manatee, sting rays, iguanas in the palm trees, and several other things. My family has been coming to Key Colony for over 35 years. We've stayed in several units...some better, some worse. If you're looking for a lot of room at a lower price to house your crew and you're not picky at all, then this would be great!!
Manager response:
We appreciate the guests feedback. The carpets are scheduled to be professionally cleaned this fall, new plugs have been purchased for the tubs and the electrical outlets was the cause of the breaker. We have refunded this guest, and we appreciate their kindness.

The home was very comfortable and clean. However, there was no broom, only one hand towel for the kitchen no wash clothes or hand towels for the bathrooms. Other than a few minor details it was ok.
Regulo S. Mar 2018
Nice house needs more attention to several details like Problems with toilets didn't flush, master bedroom tub-jacuzzi not working, BBQ grill bad , a/c leaking some kitchen appliances not working, tv 1st bedroom not working all disconnected, rocking chair in lower balconi was broken, bedroom's looks not operable, etc

This was a great home for a family get-together. Key Colony Beach is awesome.

Beware, a lot of deferred maintenance here. Upstairs bedroom mattress will be sure to roll you and your partner to the center; threadbare sheets, stained white towels. As mentioned above in the survey, there were maggots in the trash can and recycle bin and it took 3 calls to have someone come to the property and deal with this issue. There is plenty of space here, which is the only saving grace of this rental. I would not recommend this rental. Consider something else or you will have week of backaches due to the mattress issue. And don't plan on using the tub as shown in the pictures; it is not available to use, apparently having leaking issues and the taps have been removed and a lovely do not use sign on the tub. Take our advise, look elsewhere for a rental.

The house needs to be walked through better before it's turned over to the customer.
Traci S. Jun 2017
We really enjoyed our stay at your property. We were a little disappointed in the Cabana Club. Place & employees were nice we just didn't like that we couldn't take our own cooler onto the beach with our drinks & sandwiches. So we went to Bahia Honda beach & Sombrero Beach.
Daniel N. May 2017
This was our second year of renting this unit. It's in a great location with a lot of fun things going on. The Cabana Club is within walking distance and is family oriented. The unit is conveniently located half way down the keys. You are only 50 miles from Key West where there are great restaurants and site seeing venues. This condo has the potential to be a 5 star.

We arrived at a property that was half paints blu. An extension latter blocked our entry to the stairway & had to be removed by us. The trash at the bottom of the stairs was overflowing. There was dirt and trash on the stairs and walkway going up to the unit. The door to the duplex was wide open & someone who was staying in the adjacent unit was doing her personal laundry in our unit. The front door when clsed has a gap under it through which ghost ants & flies can pass. The floor wasn't mopped and all the linens in baths & bedrooms were mismatched & many in shabby condition. We were unable to use the cable the first three days. The toilet backed up on Christmas (not due to anything we did). There were no tall kitchen bags or floor cleaner until we asked & they were brought. On the balcony was a broken washing machine, a mattress & various bed linens. If these things are attended to and a hair dryer and a pair of tennis rackets were pu there instead of Easter baskets and other innocuous stuff, it would be a desirable property due to its proximity to several amenities.

We are sorry to read this review; the owner was in the home doing work until the guest arrived. We have asked that this not happen in the future. Thank you!
