Overview

Central Florida Keys House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The house is named the Lemon Drop from all the people which have stayed with us in the past. This great 2 bedroom 2 bath home has everything you need for a relaxing holiday in Key Colony Beach. Lush landscaping with key lime, Persian lime, Myers lemon, 2 mango, 2 fig, 2 star fruit, banana, papaya, avocado and 32 palm trees which will provide you a private and tranquil location to recharge your batteries.

The home has a private salt water pool and spa that's perfect for cooling off or heating up after a long day on the water. Or you can lie in the hammock under 2 palm trees or sit in the beach chairs under a canopy of palms both overlooking the pool and canal. There are 4 lounge chairs and a separate table and chairs around the pool for ample sitting/lounging.

Both bedrooms have there own attached bathrooms which is prefect for 2 couples. The master bedroom has a king size bed with a 24 inch flat screen tv with cable. The second guest room has both a double bed and a single bed with a 'hideaway' bed as well underneath so multiple guest can stay. The second guest room has a 24' TV with a dvd hook up. The lanai has a futon which can sleep 1 person as well.

A wonderful screened in porch provides guests with a great place to enjoy a drink and a good book. Use the blender to make a margarita while sitting on the porch over looking the pool and canal.

The living room has a wrap around couch and a 42 inch flat screen TV with cable and dvd hook up. This is a perfect place when you want to watch your favorite show or movie.

The kitchen has everything you need to make a gourmet meal or go outside to the BBQ and grill some steak or fish you just caught. Plenty of wine glasses or if you want to go the margarita route you can use the blender and there is plenty of glasses for sharing. You can eat at the formal dining table, in the screened in porch, or out by the pool, all of which have table and chairs ready for you.

The back yard has 90 feet of water which is 1.5 lots compared to most houses in KCB. This will give you ample room to spread out or enough space for the kids to run. You can grill outside while others lounge in the pool chairs, hammocks or just sit around the dock.

There is 2 refrigerators for use: 1 inside for the food and one outside for your beverages of choice with a fish box/freeze attached for bait or other items. Either way there is plenty of room for all your food, drinks and bait (outside frig) so you can catch your next meal.

The sea wall runs 90 feet but I have my boat on the lift in the middle of the wall. This provides you enough space to park a 25 foot bot behind mine or a 20 foot boat in front of the lift. I also have a working davit in case you bring a Sea Doo down and want to pull it out of the water. You will need to bring a harness for the davit but the davit will lift the watercraft.

This house is 1 block from the cabana club and walking distance to Sparky's bar and grill or all the other shops located on the island. It is an easy walk from the Lemon Drop to anywhere on the island. If you prefer to drive there is plenty of parking in the driveway with a covered carport as well to the right of the house (on the property) there is parking for a 40 foot RV or boat if needed.

This Lemon drop is will keep you coming back! You will not find another house like this on Key Colony Beach.

Keywords: Located on 4th Ave in Key Colony Beach is the house known as the Lemon Drop. A artfully decorated, private home with a lush tropical setting. The house sits on a lot and a half with multiple types of palms (30 total palm trees) and fruit trees (9) surrounding the property.

This fully equipped, artfully decorated and very private home is situated on 4th Ave of the private community of Key Colony Beach which is roughly mile marker 55 on the Atlantic Ocean side. You will enjoy views of beautiful sunsets while you lie in the hammock, sit on the dock, sit on the porch, swim in the pool, or relax in the Jetted Spa.

The opportunities to relax, fish, dive, lobstering or crabbing are truly excellent and this house it set up for you to do all of this and much more. From our 90-foot sea wall you will have direct access to the Atlantic Ocean with a quick ride to the Gulf (Florida Bay) if you decide to go that direction. There is a ton of shoal, flats and reefs for you to choose from if you d

About Sandy-Island Breeze Rentals

I am an executive in a medical firm who loves to fish and dive. But with 2 little kids you also need a pool, Jetted Spa, room to run, and walking distance to the beach and that is what this house offers you.

Sandy-Island Breeze Rentals purchased this house in 2011

Why Sandy-Island Breeze Rentals chose Central Florida Keys

I chose Key Colony Beach because while I love to fish, dive and play. I need safety, security and a peacful location for my family and that is what KCB offers. With it's own private police department on the island it has to be one of the safest places in the keys.

What makes this house unique

You will enjoy the lush tropical feeling of being on a private island yet you have all the amenities you will need to enjoy your vacation. This house has the items you will need to help create a perfect environment for any vacationer. With over 11 fruit trees and 32 palm trees you will not feel like you have people watching what you are doing. We have all the amenities you will need inside the house as well including 3 TVs, wrap around couch and a MP3 player.

Lemon Drop review

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lemon Drop for 1 week the end of April 2016 and loved it. It was the perfect size home for my husband, myself and our college age son. The home was very clean and the bed and furniture were comfortable. The kitchen was just the right size and was stocked with all the cooking items we needed. The screened in porch was delightful with the ceiling fan and the breeze. The boat dock was perfect for our boat 18 foot and easy to get to both the Atlantic and the Gulf with a short canal drive. Each afternoon when not out on the boat we would spend it by the pool which was refreshing and there was plenty of shade not to mention may types of fruit trees in the yard. One week every year we stay in the Keys and Lemon Drop will now be our home to come to each year!

Burns family

We rented this house Easter week 2016. We were impressed the second we walked through the door. The house is perfect size for my family of 5. The backyard is amazing. My kids named all the lizards hanging on the property. We made so many memories and were sad to leave. Definitely be back next year!

Nice location and privacy

  • 3 of 5

We rented Lemon Drop for one week; the last Saturday in February 2016. The home was comfortable and a nice size for the two of us. It was well equipped with everything you could need in the kitchen and linens/towels. The kitchen is essentially a galley style, and could be a problem if trying to prepare meals for a family. However, it has very nice appliances and the smallish kitchen size was no problem for the two of us.

We enjoyed the privacy the home offers with an oversized lot and private pool. We also enjoyed the location of the home within easy walking distance to three restaurants. However, please know that there is a new home under construction directly across the canal - your view is a construction site along with all the noise that goes with it. Across the street, in front of the home is a duplex that appears to be undergoing a full remodel with multiple contractors constantly coming and going and again - construction noise. We were disappointed that the owner did not disclose the new home construction across the canal - as this has obviously been known for some time.

Please know that the "jacuzzi" mentioned in the property description, is no more than a spa area that recirculates water from the pool. There are no jets or controls. The pool itself is in need of a remodel with missing tiles and black moldy areas around the tile dolphins motif. The interior of the home could also use a remodel, but it is maintained considering the age of the home. Also understand that VRBO allows owners to remove unfavorable reviews. This probably explains why Lemon Drop only shows two reviews (VRBO #384026). If there are two adult couples sharing the home, one of the couples will be disappointed with the size of the closet in the bedroom facing the street, because it contains the home's AC unit. We visit each year, but would like to see some updates before renting this property again.

We loved it !!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two weeks here with our two Maltese puppies and could not be happier. The location is super since it it walking distance to a few great restaurants (love Sparkies !) ...the backyard with the pool and all the comforts on the canal was well kept, maintained and enjoyable. The backyard was fenced in for our puppies and they could not get enough of chasing the small lizards. I loved fishing off the back until the fishing pole with bait on it that I had left got pulled into the water by a fish. I replaced the rod and reel and I know now it was a large catfish. The kitchen was super with everything you need...the new refrigerator was so spacious..... the living room was so comfy with the large TV and comfy couch. The bedroom with a king size bed was comfy and allowed us to watch TV until we fell asleep.

I am sure that anyone who comes here will enjoy it and have no complaints. We would come back with no problem !

All the luxuries of home in the heart of the keys!

  • 5 of 5

Lemon Drop is an excellent choice for a stay in The Key Colony/marathon location. The house is in walking distance to the beach clubs, bars, and restaurants within the neighborhood-- so it makes it easy, without having to pack everything in the car and hit the road. The home is clean & comfortable with many sleeping options as well as outdoor entertaining. Whether you want to fish off the docks, have a meal outside or drinks in the pool... You've got it made at this property! Have stayed here 2 years in a row with our family and there's no need to look anywhere else. :)
