WE LIVE IN LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY WHERE WE RUN A SMALL, FAMILY BUSINESS WITH OUR SON. WE HAVE VISITED THE KEYS REGULARLY SINCE 1994 AND PURCHASED OUR FIRST RENTAL UNIT ON KEY COLONY BEACH IN 1998. WE LOVE THE LAID-BACK ATMOSPHERE, THE OUTDOOR RESTAURANTS ON THE WATER, FISHING, SNORKELING/DIVING, THE HISTORY, THE PARKS, THE FLOWERS, VISITING KEY WEST AND THE OTHER KEYS. WE LOVE THE WEATHER, THE BLUE SKY, THE OCEAN, THE SUNSETS. WE TRAVEL TO THE KEYS 4 OR MORE TIMES EACH YEAR TO MAINTAIN OUR HOME/YARD AND OF COURSE, TO 'RELAX & PLAY' THERE. WE KEEP OUR BOAT AT THE DOCK IN FRONT OF OUR HOME AND ENJOY CATCHING AND EATING FRESH MAHI MAHI, GROUPER, SNAPPER.WAHOO,

WE ENJOY DOING NOTHING, SITTING ON DECK ALONG CANAL ENJOYING A PINA COLADA OR COFFEE OR WHATEVER. WE ENJOY GRILLING OUR FRESH CATCH ON THE DECK.

D.Carole Stamler, Owner purchased this house in 2004

WE RENTED HOMES PRIOR TO PURCHASING OUR FIRST HOUSE ON KEY COLONY BEACH IN 1998 (A 1/2 DUPLEX UNIT - LATER BOUGHT SECOND 1/2 AND IN 2004 PURCHASED OUR CURRENT SINGLE-FAMILY RENTAL COTTAGE ON 12TH STREET) BECAUSE WE LOVED THE AREA SO MUCH. WE LOVE THE FACT THAT IF WE CHOOSE TO, WE CAN DRIVE TO THE KEYS AND GET AWAY TO THE 'ISLANDS' OR WE CAN FLY INTO MIAMI, RENT A CAR AND DRIVE 100 MILES TO PARADISE. WE LOVE THE MIDDLE KEYS AS OPPOSED TO KEY WEST, BUSIER AND MORE CONGESTED - THO A FUN PLACE TO 'VISIT'. THE FISHING IS THE 'BEST' JUST OFF SHORE AS IS THE SNORKELING/DIVING. WE CHOSE THE KEYS FOR THE WEATHER. KEY COLONY IS UNIQUE IN THAT IT IS A 'CITY' WITH GOVERNING BODY AND A POLICE FORCE, SEPARATE FROM MARATHON AND REST OF KEYS. KEY COLONY BEACH IS AN ISLAND JUST OFF U.S.1 ON THE OCEAN SIDE. IT IS MOSTLY RESIDENTIAL, QUIET, WELL MAINTAINED, HAS THREE RESTAURANTS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE, A GOLF COURSE, CHARTER BOATS AND BEACHES. WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE HERE? COME SEE FOR YOURSELF........

SUNSET PARK IS ONE BLOCK FROM OUR HOME WITH GORGEOUS SUNSETS. YOU MAY BRING YOUR BOAT AND KEEP IT AT OUR DOCK (UP TO 38') OR RENT A BOAT IF YOU CHOOSE. HOME SITS ON A CANAL THAT LEADS TO GULF/OCEAN, A SHORT 5 MIN. BOAT RIDE TO EITHER. IT FEELS LIKE 'HOME' WITH MANY COMFORTS. wifi WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS, FULLY FURNISHED KITCHEN, BED LINENS, TOWELS AND MUCH MORE...........

A SINGLE FAMILY HOME, NOT A DUPLEX-LOVE IT!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in this home three times and love it! It's much nicer to stay in a single-family home versus a duplex! You really have your privacy.
The sunroom offers extra space and your group will have plenty of room.
Fishing off the dock is always fun. It's a close walk to Sunset Beach. We feel at home and we have everything we need. The Cabana Club is wonderful!
Carole is very accommodating and answers questions right away. We hope to come back every year!

Owner's Response: This review - from a wonderful Michigan family of 6 - who we were fortunate to meet on one of our trips to the Keys - they have spent their Christmas Vacations at our home for 4 years. They are the "perfect" guests who take good care of your property as they own rental property on Lake Michigan and manage it themselves as I do.

Owner's Response: Warms my heart to hear how my guests enjoy our home & Key Colony Beach area. If you've not experienced the "Keys", put it on your "bucket List". Like no other place in Florida. Great Fishing. Just 3 miles offshore you can snorkel or dive "Coffins Patch Reef" (20-30 ft deep) which offers hundreds of reef fish, sea turtles, eels, nurse sharks & lobster.
The manatees have been known to pay a visit at our dock behind the cottage.
And there's always a day trip to Key West & all it has to offer.
Or, spend a day at the Cabana Club pool/beach.
So much to see/do----You won't be disappointed. Relax. Enjoy. Make memories with your family/friends.

FANTASTIC WEEK WITH MY FAMILY SPENT IN YOUR HOME!

  • 5 of 5
I had a wonderful vacation with my family in your home. Everything was exactly as described and it was a bonus to have all the extra room. The location was perfect, loved the street. It was so quiet and peaceful and we loved walking to Sunset Park to enjoy the amazing sunsets. We also started and ended every day sitting on your dock. It was good for the soul. I also loved the central location of Key Colony Beach. We were able to get down to Key West twice and also do some local things. Of course, the Cabana Club was used for lots of swimming! I would recommend this property to anyone and I hope I am able to return sometime in the very near future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your "review". Happy to hear you love our Keys home as much as we do. We too love the 1 block walk to Sunset park or spending an afternoon at the Cabana Club on the beach. Key Colony is such a peaceful & beautiful community. Great place to relax, explore other Keys, snorkel, fish or do nothing.

SPACIOUS AND COMFORTABLE HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Carole's Cottage was very spacious and well stocked with everything necessary to make us feel at home for our 4 week stay. Key Colony Beach is a charming city with just enough restaurant and entertainment options within a short walk or bike ride away to satisfy us on most days. Having a canal in the back was great with the wildlife including herons, iguanas, pelicans and manatee kept us entertained daily. The area is convenient to shopping and excellent restaurants and only and hour to Key West. We appreciate that Carole rents her cottage so others can have the opportunity to spend time in paradise!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice comments about our home. I find Fall a great time to be on the Keys- quiet & relaxing AND good weather! Seems there is always some kind of wildlife around the canal-- birds, iguanas, fish & if you are lucky- manatees. The back deck is a great place to watch wildlife, sun, read, have a coffee or cocktail, entertain or do NOTHING. For another quiet spot- take your chair 1 block to Sunset Park during the day and sit by the sea.

WONDERFUL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This house surpassed our expectations. It was immaculate and Christmas decorations had been set out, adding to the vacation spirit. We had two dogs which loved the access to the small beach(with beautiful sunsets) just a block away. Marathon is quiet, but Key West is only an hour away. There are several restaurants nearby(easily walkable). We hope to return soon!

EVEN BETTER THAN THE PICTURES

  • 5 of 5
As gorgeous as the house appears in the pictures, it is even better in reality. The home is spacious, airy, beautifully appointed - and thoughtfully arranged for guests. Only two of us stayed this trip, but it was set up such that two couples or two generations of a family would have plenty of privacy. We had a wonderful time at Carole's Cottage and hope to come back!
