About Heather Jones
We love islands, fishing, beaches, and seafood. The Florida Keys have all of this and more.
Heather Jones purchased this House in 2005
Why Heather Jones chose Key Colony Beach
In 2005 we found vacation home paradise in Key Colony Beach. We adore this community because its quiet and offers all the amenities of a small town. The little post office and shops are quaint and friendly. And, best of all, Key Colony is close to other major islands....Key West, Islamorda, Key Largo for more sun and fun.
What makes this House unique
We love go to Sparky's grill and bar (try the Mahi tacos!) for Happy Hour or dinner after a long day of fishing! The Stuffed Pig is one of our favorite breakfast joints. We also enjoy family walks around the island, to watch the sunset, and along the scenic Seven Mile bridge. Key West is an easy drive but, if it's during holiday season, be sure to allow yourself extra time for the traffic. Keep your eyes out for lots of wildlife! We often see large iguanas, manatees, sea turtles, dolphins, and many beautiful birds.

Excellent vacation home. No noisy neighbors. Dan loaned us tools when I needed minor repair to my boat. Easy access by boat to the Gulf or Atlantic. We would book again.
Everything was excellent! Loved having a comfortable house and our boat docked out back!
This property was fabulous! I loved how the entire house was decorated with attention to every detail! Beds were extremely comfortable, even though the king size bed was challenging to get into for a 5 foot woman due to it's height. This was a great location for boating. We brought our 19 ft. boat and were able to keep it docked out back. Great dock with water hose and electric. We enjoyed sitting on the patio in the evening and talking with the neighbor. There was room for parking for a large F150 truck, trailer, and mid size car. The Cabana Club had a nice pool and beach area to swim in. I am so glad we booked this property and we will definitely return.

Nice house, very nicely appointed. Got immediate response from owners when contacted.
Meh. It was ok when the ac worked and the ants stayed away.
The house was clean so that was nice. Grill was left filthy and with no propane so we borrowed propane from the neighbor and gave him $35 worth of ballyhoo bait in exchange for using it twice. He complained to the owner that I didn’t also replace the gas so the owner charged us $20 for it without even asking me what happened. Also the neighbors happy dog was annoying and they let it run wild on our side of the fence. AC went out Saturday and it was 86 degrees in the house when it was “fixed.” Never cooled less than 77 after. Huge ants present in the house and couldn’t find where they were coming from. I asked to add an additional night and was told there is an “extra charge for having six people” despite the fact that the rental is listed for six people and I didn’t pay an extra charge to begin with, so I had to pay an extra $20 on the last night when they hadn’t charged for extra people previously. The owner offered to refund one night (without the extra person charge and minus the $20 for propane) for the AC issue and that didn’t even cover our stay at a hotel for when the AC was broken. Also- it is advertised as “bring just your luggage” but we had to purchase dish detergent, trash bags, toilet paper, paper towels, and laundry detergent. We never could find a broom or dust pan so we couldn’t sweep all week, which was annoying. I won’t be renting from them again and I hope to never hear from them.
This tenant was provided with all details regarding the rental - including propane usage and supplies provided - in the lease agreement. It was unfortunate that the AC unit went out. To accommodate the guests inconvenience we reimbursed her for one night's hotel stay while the AC was being repaired. We use Truly Nolan as our pest vendor and would have called them out immediately to address the issue but the tenant never voiced concern to us regarding ants. We were surprised to receive this negative review as our history of five star reviews indicates otherwise.
Great place to stay!
Great location on Marathon. Wouldn't have changed a thing with the house. Well appointed, bright, open and plenty of room. It was nice having access to the pool, beach and Sunset Beach in the Key Colony community. Everything you need is nearby.
Appreciate the hospitality of the owner, manager, and neighbors. Great stay, highly recommend it.
