About the property

It's tough living in Paradise, but someone has to do it. When we built our dream home in the Keys we also built two others next door, just like ours. We hope to share them with you through Home Away.

Because we live here, we know where all the best spots are to fish, dive and dine. We believe in sharing our homes and all the information you need to maximize your vacation in The Keys. We are here for you.

Our side by side duplexes are located at the open end of the 3rd St canal in KCB. The canal opens into Bone Fish Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. A short trip around KCB gets you into Florida Bay (about 10 min).

We are one block away from the Ocean Beach(Cabana Club) and 100' from the bay.

Had a great time spending time with Peter/ Blanche

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week with Peter and Blanche, so sorry to write a late review. Peter helped us launch our boat , gave us charts to find fish in the conditions we were in. Helped with a trailer issue before we left. They were gracious Owner's that gave us the privacy we wanted and gave us the info we needed. Peter I can not thank you enough for helping Hubby launch the boat and driving the trailer back so I did not have to. You also helped with driving the trailer to pick up the boat, THANKS! I so much appreciated your help. They are gracious lovely people, we so much enjoyed our stay, this is a great clean neat and every thing we wanted place to stay! All fives for them and the house!

Great location, value and owners. Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home for our family. The location was perfect. Grocery stores, restaurants, pharmacies, and a K-mart were within 10 minutes of the rental. The neighborhood was very quiet and safe. There was a playground a street away from the house. My son and daughter fished every afternoon after our beach and pool time and caught a lot of fish ( Catch and release since none of them were big enough to keep). Peter let us borrow 2 fishing rods and gave my kids great pointers since I was not a fishing expert. We saw a manatee in the canal during our stay. Coco Plum beach and Sombrero beach were a short 10 minutes or less drive from the house. Bahai Honda - which had great snorkeling from the beach-was less than 30 minutes away. The cabana club was great - the pool and beach never felt crowded...

Peter and Blanche were friendly, very responsive and were great to talk to. They let us borrow a cooler for our trips to the beach and Key West. Peter suggested great spots for snorkeling, restaurants, and was an encyclopedia of the fauna and flora in the area.

This was a great place and would definitely rent this home again every time we go back to the Keys...

Great place to stay/Would defiantly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. Upon arrival we found the place to extremely clean and very well equipped. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything you need to prepare meals. The location is perfect, although we did not bring our boat, the dock is on a wide deep canal and located at the end of the canal so it is a quick trip to open water to either side. There is also a decent public boat ramp very close on the Gulf side. The house in located at the end of a cul-de-sac and is very secure. I noticed officers patrolling the neighborhood often. The amenities like the use of an ice makers, washer/dryer, gas grill and covered parking were an added bonus. A short 5-10 minute walk and you are at a nice pool, tiki bar and small beach. Pete is a wealth of knowledge from the history of Key Colony to the best places for happy hours and dining. Both Pete and Blanch are very nice and accommodating. I would defiantly go back.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better family location, home, and owners!! Blanche and Pete were so accommodating and helpful and patient with my children. The dock and the canal with all its vistors (fish and manatees) kept the children especially my 8 yr old little fisherman entertained daily!! Loved Cabana club too! The home had everything that we needed. I wouldn't change a thing about this home. Wonderful memories here. Would definitely stay again!

Loved the neighboood/location & owners were great!

  • 5 of 5

This is a long overdue, but much needed review! Our family took a road trip to the FL Keys last year over Spring Break, and we couldn't have been happier with our time there. Mr. and Mrs. Hines were so accommodating knowing we were travelling so far from home. They helped us plan our trip ahead of time and were extremely helpful and hospitable during our stay there. Key Colony Beach turned out to be the perfect location for our week in the Keys as it is centrally located, and great for families. The property had everything we needed (including fresh aloe when we had a little too much sun!). In the evenings, we all enjoyed hanging out on the dock while the kids did some fishing. The neighborhood cabana club and pool was a definite bonus, as we went there a few times during our stay. We hope to return again next year and highly recommend this property and its owners!

Perfect Family Stay in KCB!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in KCB this Fall!! The location, house & amenities made for the perfect family vacation in the Keys. The wonderful owners (Pete & Blanche) have thought of everything to assure you fully enjoy your time in their vacation homes. The Cabana Club is a great afternoon escape for the kids & offers some nice beach time!! Pete's boating & fishing tips took the guess work out of finding the perfect spots. We are hoping to be back next Fall!! We have stayed in many, many Keys rentals & found this place offered the best overall stay for us!! Thank you again!! Mark & Sue, Rob & the kids
