Key Colony Beach Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Great place to vist with family & friends or to get away & fish or just relax

Beautiful townhome in a quiet location with a boat slip at your doorstep and sunsets that you will remember for a lifetime. This section will be completed at a later date because I am presently enjoying all those amenities available here at Indigo Reef. I hope you all get an opportunity to visit and for a long time as life doesn't get any better than this. I would live here forever but have 2 grandchildren that live 1 mile from me in Virginia and, at least for the time being, I feel the need to be with them, Cheers... jeff

OK…. Here’s my start at the PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

Villa 46 at Indigo Reef is oriented east / west. The entrance and guest rooms face the east and get the morning sun filtered through the trees. The deck off the living area and master bedroom face the west providing sunsets as beautiful as anywhere on the planet.

The covered parking for Villa 46 is situated directly across from the Villa making loading and unloading as convenient as possible. Additionally, the boat slip for the unit is conveniently located off the back deck. The slip has 110V electricity and fresh water and the fish cleaning station is about 20 feet away. Indigo Reef also provides free ice for your boat to ice down your catch and there are even some nice mangrove snappers hiding in the mangroves on the far side of the channel.

The Villa is close to the pool yet not so close as to be bothered by folks travelling to and from the pool. Although Indigo Reef is a quiet and serene setting, Villa 46 has recently added bullet proof glass for all exterior doors and windows making the unit one of the quietest at Indigo Reef. Charcoal barbeque grills are available near the docks but not so close that smoke and unwanted smells will enter the Villa.

The Villa was professionally decorated so I take no credit for the comfortable furniture or decorative paintings. To make the Villa more user friendly I added a desk because I know some people like to do a little work even when they are on vacation and there also some speakers to plug into if you like to listen to music or watch movies on your laptop. Secure Wi-Fi is available throughout the Villa and unsecure Wi-Fi is available in the area of the pool.

Regarding entertainment at Villa 46, there is a large TV with DVD player in the main living area that offers Cox cable HD channels. There is also a flat screen cable TV in the master bedroom and the queen bedroom. An under counter radio / CD player with remote is located by the breakfast bar. I love the oldies at 94.3 FM. All bedrooms have alarm clocks but the master bedroom has a clock radio that can be set for 4 alarms per day and for different days of the week.

I’ve also added a buffet and hutch to Villa 46 to expand the space for dishes, silverware and groceries for those who enjoy eating at home once in a while. There is a unique table in the living area with 4 slide out stools which makes for an excellent game table for family board games should you encounter a few hours of inclement weather. A small but growing selection of books is also provided. In the living area there is a small weather station providing indoor/outdoor temperature humidity and air pressure with a repeater in the master bedroom.

About Jeff Bliemel

Retired US Air Force Flight Test Project Officer and also retired as the City Engineer from Poquoson, Virginia. Now liviing at my small marina on the Chesapeake Bay in Deltaville, Virginia.

Jeff Bliemel purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Jeff Bliemel chose Key Colony Beach

I initially purchased my home for my personal use and that of my family however after purchasing I was asked if I would honor the existing rentals on the unit. Not wanting to ruin anyone's holiday I agreed and have been enjoying the opportunity to meet new travlers and make new friends ever since.

What makes this townhome unique

I continue to improve my home because when my 6 and 10 year old grandchildren, who live a mile from me in Virginia, are no longer excited about playing with grandpa, I intend to move here permenantly. That will probably be 10 or 12 years from now but I spend as much time as I can in Marathon when the kids are in school.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing vacation my family and I had. I first want to say how amazing and wonderful it was to rent from the owner Jeff and the property manager Katie. Jeff was so very nice and very accommodating over the phone and email. He worked with me when I asked to come in a day early. I really appreciated it. You can tell he truly cares about the visitors that stay in his vacation home!!! Indigo Reef villa 46 is absolutely perfect. The beds are super comfortable, it is beautifully furnished and the kitchen has everything and more to make wonderful dinners which we did. The boat slip is right in front of the villa for easy access. We have been coming to the keys for 10+ years and we will definitely rent this unit again!!!! Thank you Jeff and Katie for making it an awesome vacation and opening your piece of paradise up to our family.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the wonderful review Shelby. I’m so glad enjoyed yourself and I sincerely do hope you’ll come again. Katie really does work hard to provide our guests with whatever they need. I planned on coming down the day you left but got detained in Virginia so tomorrow I’ll head for the Keys to enjoy a couple of weeks of island living myself. Of course I’m down there as much as I can and when I am… well I look around to see what improvements I can make. I just had a larger instant hot water heater installed and this trip I plan to slightly modify the kitchen cabinet doors to make access to dishes, glasses and pantry items more accessible. Any suggestions you could make will be appreciated. Glad you like the location of the boat slip. Not only is it convenient to my home but also to the fish cleaning station and the free ice machine to ice down your catch. I look forward to your next visit but try to let me know as early as you can. Some folks have already booked for 2016 and that’s 2 years away!!!.
Cheers, jeff

Indigo Reef Excellent!

  • 5 of 5
What a perfect getaway! We were most definitely pleased with the community, and especially pleased with our accommodations. The first floor was spacious and very comfortable. The master bedroom was huge . . very comfortable King size bed . . . and large master bathroom. The sunset views were beautiful.

We used the pier to launch paddleboards and paddled out to enjoy the water. We saw sea turtles and a manatee. What fun!

The pool was very nice and relaxing as well.

We traveled twice down to Key West and the trip was beautiful. We'd recommend the Fury Adventure if you want to have a fun filled day in Key West. Key West is just a little over 1 hour away, truly an easy hour too. We also drove up to Miami to see the Marlins play baseball, about a 2 hour and 15 minute drive. We had a great day at the ballpark and that gave us a day not in the sun.

We didn't want to leave . . . and would most definitely return.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the wonderful review Graham. I’m glad you Beth and the kids enjoyed it as much as I do when I’m there with my family. Although my home was professionally decorated, I’m always adding little things to make it even better, something some other owners do not care about. Several units have been bought just to provide rental income whereas I actually live there part time and someday it will be full time.

The sunsets are beautiful and I’m glad you got the opportunity to do some paddelboarding. Did you make it over to Russell Key? I’m also happy to hear that you got to see some sea turtles and a manatee. There is a wide variety of wildlife to observe in and around Indigo Reef which is enhanced by the surrounding area being protected by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Department. As you say, the trip to Key West is an easy one that affords the opportunity to see some more active goings on and when you tire of that Indigo Reef 46 is the place to relax and enjoy the sunset. And for baseball fans, well the ride to Miami can be interesting as well with many places to stop and shop or eat along the way.

I know how you feel when you say you didn’t want to leave…. I always feel that way too. I’m glad that you’re coming back and look forward to seeing you soon.

Cheers, jeff

My family and I stayed at this home and had such a wonderful time. Woke up to beautiful sunrise views, weather was great, had boat dockage right out front and the house was very much like home. Sunset views are he best! I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a nice vacation and the property is very family oriented. Pool was great!

Owner's Response: I’m glad you and your family had a good time. I agree that the pool and the sunsets are fantastic and glad you liked being able to park the boat so close as well as having the fish cleaning station so near the slip. My grandkids love the big open grassy area for playing ball and flying kites. They get a real kick out of watching the manatees in the canal and even like the iguanas as much as I try to scare the lizards away. Ha ha ha. If you can think of any ways I can improve your stay, please let me know.
Cheers, jeff
