Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: WE LIVE IN LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY WHERE WE RUN A SMALL, FAMILY BUSINESS WITH OUR SON. WE HAVE VISITED THE KEYS REGULARLY SINCE 1994 AND PURCHASED OUR FIRST HALF-DUPLEX RENTAL UNIT ON KEY COLONY BEACH IN 1998. WE LOVE THE LAID-BACK ATMOSPHERE, THE OUTDOOR RESTAURANTS ON THE WATER, FISHING, SNORKELING/DIVING, THE HISTORY, THE PARKS, THE FLOWERS, VISITING KEY WEST AND THE OTHER KEYS. WE LOVE THE WEATHER, THE BLUE SKY, THE OCEAN, THE SUNSETS. WE TRAVEL TO THE KEYS 4 OR MORE TIMES EACH YEAR TO MAINTAIN OUR PROPERTY AND OF COURSE TO 'RELAX & PLAY' THERE. WE KEEP OUR BOAT AT THE DOCK IN FRONT OF OUR HOME AND ENJOY CATCHING AND EATING FRESH MAHI MAHI, GROUPER, SNAPPER.WAHOO, WE ENJOY DOING NOTHING, SITTING ON DECK ALONG CANAL ENJOYING A PINA COLADA OR COFFEE OR WHATEVER. WE ENJOY GRILLING OUR FRESH CATCH ON THE DECK.

Why the Owner Chose Key Colony Beach:
WE RENTED HOMES PRIOR TO PURCHASING OUR FIRST HOUSE ON KEY COLONY BEACH IN 1998 (A 1/2 DUPLEX UNIT - LATER BOUGHT SECOND 1/2 AND IN 2004 PURCHASED OUR CURRENT SINGLE-FAMILY RENTAL COTTAGE ON 12TH STREET) BECAUSE WE LOVED THE AREA SO MUCH. WE LOVE THE FACT THAT IF WE CHOOSE TO, WE CAN DRIVE TO THE KEYS AND GET AWAY TO THE 'ISLANDS' OR WE CAN FLY INTO MIAMI, RENT A CAR AND DRIVE 100 MILES TO PARADISE. WE LOVE THE MIDDLE KEYS AS OPPOSED TO KEY WEST, BUSIER AND MORE CONGESTED - THO A FUN PLACE TO 'VISIT'. THE FISHING IS THE 'BEST' JUST OFF SHORE AS IS THE SNORKELING/DIVING. WE CHOSE THE KEYS FOR THE WEATHER. KEY COLONY IS UNIQUE IN THAT IT IS A 'CITY' WITH GOVERNING BODY AND A POLICE FORCE, SEPARATE FROM MARATHON AND REST OF KEYS. KEY COLONY BEACH IS AN ISLAND JUST OFF U.S.1 ON THE OCEAN SIDE. IT IS MOSTLY RESIDENTIAL, QUIET, SAFE, WELL MAINTAINED, HAS THREE RESTAURANTS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE, A GOLF COURSE, CHARTER BOATS AND BEACHES WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE HERE? COME SEE FOR YOURSELF........

The Unique Benefits at this House:
OUR HOME IS 'OWNER MANAGED' ---YOU GET PERSONAL ATTENTION FROM CAROLE. PRIVATE, SINGLE-FAMILY, 2 LARGE KING BEDROOMS, 2 LARGE BATHS, 2100 SQ. FT. OPEN LIVING SPACE PLUS A DECK, BOAT DOCK, TRAILER PARKING AND MEMBERSHIP TO THE CABANA CLUB (BEACH, POOL). WE LIVE THERE 4 - 6 WEEKS EACH YEAR AND KEEP OUR HOME MAINTAINED FOR OUR GUESTS. YOU WILL FIND OUR HOME CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, PLEASANTLY DECORATED AND A GOOD PLACE TO RELAX, READ, WATCH THE WILDLIFE, FISH OFF THE DOCK, OR DO NOTHING!! SUNSET PARK ON THE OCEAN IS ONE BLOCK FROM OUR HOME WITH PICNIC TABLES, A PIER & GORGEOUS SUNSETS. BRING YOUR OWN WINE! YOU MAY BRING YOUR BOAT AND KEEP IT AT OUR DOCK (UP TO 38') OR RENT A BOAT IF YOU CHOOSE. HOME SITS ON A CANAL THAT LEADS TO GULF/OCEAN, A SHORT 5 MIN. BOAT RIDE TO EITHER. IT FEELS LIKE 'HOME' WITH MANY COMFORTS. WIFI WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS, FULLY FURNISHED KITCHEN, NEW MATTRESSES (5/15)BED LINENS, TOWELS AND MUCH MORE........... COME AS YOU ARE............ENJOY THE BEACHES, MILD TEMPERATURE, PALM TREES IN THE DEAD OF WINTER OR ANYTIME! WARNING- WE DO GET BOOKED EARLY!!
