I spent hours researching which house I wanted to rent for our second trip back to Key Colony Beach. I chose this house and am so glad I did. Mary was great to work with before our trip, quickly answering any emails I sent. I had one quick question while we were at the house and she answered the phone right away, answered my question, and then wanted to hear how we were enjoying her house and Key Colony Beach.
The photos and description of the house were accurate. The house was a really nice layout for our group. It is an L shaped house with the foyer and lower bedroom on the ground floor of the long part of the L, with the living/dining room, kitchen, and master bedroom above it. There was a covered deck on both levels which connected to the short part of the L, where there was the den on the lower level and the third bedroom with attached bath on the upper level. We had my husband and I and our two younger kids in the long part of the L in the up/downstairs bedrooms, and my sister and brother in law were in the other upstairs bedroom accessed by the deck, and our 18 year old and her friend stayed in the den with the futon, accessed through the lower deck. There was also a side porch, front porch, and backyard seating area overlooking the canal. This was really nice for when we all came back from the Cabana Club and wanted to rest before going out to dinner. Everyone could find their own spot.
I liked having the laundry in a little nook off of the upstairs deck, making it easy for everyone to use. The house was very clean and very well stocked. The kitchen was especially well stocked for a vacation rental. We loved eating outside on the upstairs deck, taking a short walk to Inch Beach or Sunset Park. We would walk to the Cabana Club, Leigh Ann's Coffee House, or just to go exploring the island. It gave everyone the flexibility to do their own thing and then meet up with the group when ready.
We love Key Colony Beach. We stayed here last year in a two bedroom house and liked it so much we invited family to join us and found this house to rent. We took trips to Key West, Spirit Snorkeling in Marathon (about 15 minutes away), and went back to the Sunset Grille in Marathon a couple of times. We would get there around 4, order drinks and appetizers while the kids swam in the pool at the restaurant, and watched the sun set overlooking 7 Mile Bridge.
I would highly recommend Key Colony Beach, and this house in particular, to friends and family.
