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 !

Stunning property: A must rent!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was spotless upon arrival with all of the amenities exactly as described. The gas grill was very convenient and made family grilling and dining easy for me (dad). In addition, with such close proximity and visibility of the dock I was able to watch the kids fish while I prepared meals. The dock was wonderful; it was very spacious and we spent hours fishing off of it (we even saw a manatee! :) ) With a ladder off of the dock we were also able to kayak down the canal which was an amazing experience. My kids very much enjoyed the nautical-themed bedroom. Each room offered plenty of lighting and the master bedroom was plenty spacious for my wife and I. The master bathroom connected to the master bedroom was a very nice bonus. The porch offered great views of the canal and was a very pleasant place to enjoy the sunset. As a whole, the property offered close proximity to the Cabana Club, as well as some of the top places for fishing and dining in the Keys.

Denise was very professional and a pleasure to rent from. She was very helpful, answering all questions that we had (and we had a lot LOL :) ). We will definitely be renting from Denise in the future!!!

Lovely home and accommodations. Love the fish that hangs just inside the front door! We will definitely be back!! (And it was a definite plus that the other side was vacant at the time we were there)

Excellent value. house was very clean and decorated nicely! great location to all attractions. The key colony pool is not very nice we hung out at the Cabana Beach Club pool right next door. They have hammocks, games and right on the beach, just buy a drink at the bar and walk into the pool. Unfortunately the beaches had so much seaweed it was not very nice, and the smell was worse, no big deal plenty to do with out the beaches. We brought our own kayaks make sure you have dock line to lower them in the canal and get them out. Thank you for maintaining the house so nice! We would rent again!

We enjoyed our stay in Key Colony Beach. It was spacious and clean. We fished from the canal every day and caught permits (?), catfish, a large crab, and a stingray! Of which we let all go. Although we had the use of a nice grill, we never did grill out because there were so many good restuarants in the area, sparky's landing, cabana breezes, the Wrech, the Stuffed Pig, Bubba's smoke house, and marathon fresh fish market and "hook line and Drinker" were all places we would visit again. Only adds for the place would be to include at least 4 beach towels for lounging on the nice chairs by the canal and a ceiling fan mounted on the front porch would be nice. Palm trees limit the view a little, but they are very nice nonetheless. The guest full size bed is a bit squeaky and soft for two adults to sleep on. Otherwise, beautiful place.
