Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Mark and Lynne,



We had an awesome week in your beautiful KCB home August 4-11th. We loved your home and hope to stay there again in future years! I particularly enjoyed having the "storage shed" near the boat where we stored our dive tanks and dive gear. It was nice to be able to secure the gear at night and not have to lug it up to the house. I was also thankful for the bait freezer on the carport where we kept our bait and ice. The house and inside furnishings were wonderful.

VERY NICE PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
This review is a little late but I wanted to express our extreme satisfaction with Tiki Time! We absolutely enjoyed everything about the duplex. The accommodations were nice and the kitchen was very updated and well stocked with everything you would need for a weeks stay. The grounds were very clean and the tiki hut was a welcome addition as it was very hot most days we were there. The duplex was very clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable and the King sized bed in the master is a plus. The bathrooms had good water pressure. I can't comment on the TV/DVD as we never turned it on the entire week but the internet had good range. You could sit under the Tiki hut and still get a good signal.

This was a wonderful place and hope we will be able to rent it again the next time we come down to the Keys.

Key Colony is a wonderful place. This was my third time to stay in here and it has never disappointed. This was the first time staying here and owners have made this a little oasis in the middle Keys.

PERFECT PLACE!!! LOOK NO FURTHER....

  • 5 of 5
After I viewed this property I was hoping it was as great as it sounded and it was by far. Very clean and owners very nice and accommodating. We brought our boat and hooked it right up where you see the dock. Very easy to get in and out of Vaca Cut. Captain Hook bait shop was very convenient and help super friendly. Food at all the restaurants was good with the top 2 being Sparkys Landing and Key Colony Club. I would recommend this property to anyone, and we looked everywhere while we were here and this is the best place!!! Already making plans to return next year. :)

THE PERFECT SPOT FOR A FABULOUS VACATION

  • 5 of 5
First off let me just say that I'm so glad we were able to stay at this great location for two weeks because one week wouldn't have been long enough! Our goal in choosing this location was to have a great spot for kayaking and biking the area. Well, it doesn't get much better than this.

Marathon is very bike friendly and Key Colony Beach is even more so with easy biking throughout this lovely community. There are several parks that are an easy bike ride or walk away. We especially liked Sunset Beach park where we got to meet several people who live on the Island. The sense of community here is wonderful, we were made to feel welcome by everyone we met without feeling like our vacation was being intruded upon. There's also a kids park, golf course and sandy beach area just minutes away.

We frequented several restaurants in Key Colony. Sparky's was excellent! The wait staff were all very friendly, the food was always good, the live music was an added treat and the happy hour prices were great. Cabana Breezes was also one of our favorite spots. They had great live music and fabulous happy hour prices, and the food and atmosphere was wonderful. Then there's Leigh Ann's Coffee Shop; a must if you enjoy fresh breads and pastries. All of these are an easy bike ride (or walk) from the "Tiki Time."

We enjoyed kayaking right from the dock and also from several other locations around Marathon. Bahia Honda State park was absolutely beautiful. We also loved the Grassy Key's bike trail. This trail is easy to bike to from Key Colony and ends up being about an 11 mile ride round trip. The trail it's self is protected most of the way by mangroves on both sides so the wind wasn't much of an issue. We saw quite a few Iguanas on the ride.

One of our favorite things to do at the rental property was sitting under the tiki hut and watching the wildlife that frequents the area. We saw Pelicans of all ages and colors, amazing Great White Egrets, and some really LARGE fish swimming the channel. We even had a young manatee come right up to the dock and pay us a visit. The tiki hut is large and easily accommodated the three us of with room to spare and it provided all the protection we needed on the couple of days it rained while we were there.

Finally the home was very well appointed with comfortable furniture that fit right in with the tropical atmosphere we were looking for. Mark the owner was extremely pleasant and I hope we have the opportunity to visit again.

AMAZING PROPERTY, GREAT LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
This property has it all. My family (4 adults and a -1 year-old baby) have been to plenty of properties in the States, Latin America and Europe; this is by far, one of the best properties we've stayed at. The house was very clean and charming. It is equipped with anything you would ever need. My recommendation is to rent a boat, the property is perfect for this, and so are the Florida keys. The Cabana Club is a good option, but not great if you plan to cook since you can't bring anything there; the pool is clean and the beach is nice too, but the food and drink prices are a bit high to do it everyday. Overall, we would rent this house again in a heartbeat and hope that all the properties we rent in the future are nearly as nice, clean and inviting as Tiki Time! Thank you!

BEAUTIFUL GETAWAY!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This home was perfect!! It was well furnished and very clean!!! The atmosphere made you feel right at home. Beautiful property right on the bay. The guys had a great time fishing right off the porch. A wonderful escape but also plenty of things to do. Mark and Lynne made it effortless to rent this property. This was the easiest vacation I have ever booked. Will definitely be returning in the future!!
Thanks for the great stay!!
