Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We love the outdoors, and all the activities that this involves- boating, fishing, 'beaching', tennis and golf. Good restaurants are another of our favorites, whether eating at picnic tables or fine dining.

Why the Owner Chose Key Colony Beach:
Because we have spent our life in the airline business, we have travelled most of the world. Key Colony Beach is still a very special place for us, which is why we bought a vacation home here. We still love coming here, and discover something new and delightful every time.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of our favorite activities is the drive to Key Colony Beach, with the ocean views from the bridges, and the feeling of coming home to a place we can relax and enjoy the wonderful warm sunshine. Special times for us are morning walks to the coffee shop or evening walks to Sunset Park to see the unbelievable sunsets. We have a lime tree on our property, and love the fresh limes for an afternoon drink.
