About Denise Lawhorn

My husband and I purchased the property back in 2002. We have enjoyed going to Key Colony Beach with our two boys over the years. My husband maintains the property yearly with fresh paint and new updates. This unit is in pristine condition and we enjoy sharing our home with others so they can enjoy the beautiful weather and activities. Book early these weeks tend to go quickly.

Relax and enjoy your vacation !

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have rented this unit before and I will rent it again. The unit is clean and every time I return the owners have updated the property. There is a washer and dryer on site and the kitchen is up to date...and did I mention clean! The unit also comes with a cabana club and private beach that is family friendly. I love to spend the afternoon reading on the veranda and firing up the blender in the evening. We took a hike at the Crane Nature Preserve, spent a day at the Sunset Beach and played a day in Key West. My granddaughter loves the beach because they have a well maintained playground. The only difficult decision is deciding where to eat because the restaurants are very good. Can't wait till next time.

Tasteful, clean, well-equipped, great location,

  • 5 of 5

Whenever we travel to key colony and need a place to stay, this property is where we inquire first. The owners are easy to work with, the kitchen has everything we need for preparing excellent gourmet fish dinners from our catch and the neighbours are pleasant. Refreshing change from the ill-equipped, tackily decorated rentals in the same price range. Great house.

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time. The house was perfect for our family of four. The only thing we would have liked to have known was that there were no hand soap, dish soap or trash bags in the house. Other than that we loved our stay!

Beautiful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and right in Key Colony Beach. Everything that you need is close by and easy to get to. The house is right on the water and we fished everyday right off the dock when we got hot we would go to the Cabana Club which is right down the street. We also went to Key West which is only an hour away! This house was a beautiful place to stay for me and my friends and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice place to stay.

Very nice home.

  • 4 of 5

Well maintained and had all the necessities and in a great location! Refrigerator was only challenge as it didn't keep food very cold.

I would recommend this property and certainly return in the future.

This was our second year in a row renting this home, and again everything was just perfect for us ~~ although the weather could have cooperated a little more as far as being able to fish offshore!

Denise and Barbara (the realtor) were great to work with! We will be back!!
