This was one of the best vacations we have had. Weather, beach, resort were awesome!!!! October is a great month to visit Marathon - not many tourists. It was like the beach was our own private beach - would visit again & again!!!!!

A Great Vacation in the Keys!
A Great Vacation in the Keys!
Our great vacation in the Florida Keys started with this great condo right on the beach. There were four of us (two couples) and the two bedrooms with two baths worked out perfect. The condo was in the beach front building so you walk out of your room right to the beach which the girls loved. Right behind us was the pool so both beach and pool were right there. The other thing we loved was that it was a quiet area. The condo was well stocked with everything you needed, it was roomy and very comfortable for four people. The grounds of the condo were very well kept and very pleasant, and we liked that it had a front lawn of grass just before the beach instead of concrete as most other places on the beach had. The condo manager, Mehgan, was very friendly, and easy to deal with. Also, our deposit was returned soon after we got home. As others said, Key Colony Beach is out of the hustle and bustle of the main road areas, but still very conveniently located. We went to all the local eateries in our area, Leighanns, Cabana Breezes, Key Colony Inn, and Sparkys. They were all good and you could walk there if you wanted to. Marathon is perfectly located for exploring the Keys. You're close enough to Key West to have an easy drive to get there and enjoy it, but then come home to a nice quiet condo on a quiet part of the island. Marathon has lots of good restaurants and interesting little places to stop and shop as well as major retail and grocery store chains. We feel that we picked the perfect location for our first visit to the Keys when we picked this condo, and we would definitely choose it again for the next visit!

After a week in Key West, we stayed for a week at this condo. This unit is a great place to stay for a week. The owners provide a "turn-key" stay, everything is provided, except for you food! The beach is only a few steps away, my wife and I spent EVERY afternoon there, and although we just used the beach chairs (that the owners provided), others were snorkeling, fishing, and just enjoying the water. If the ocean isn't your thing, the pool is large and has plenty of loungers, and it was always pretty quiet there. the unit is great, nice modern kitchen, comfy beds, chairs and sofas. fabulous ocean view deck off the master bedroom. Key Colony Beach is a quiet area off of Marathon, but grocery stores etc are only a few minutes away. A few places to eat on KCB are GREAT. ( I love Sparkys for happy hour, 4-6 every day!) Shirley was great to work with, as was the onsight manager, both VERY quick to respond to questions. I'm already trying to think when I can return! Thanks for a great place!........Dave

PERFECT KEYS VACATION
PERFECT KEYS VACATION
Key Colony is the PERFECT Keys location…..in the middle of everything but away from it all. You drive across the causeway into a different world. You can walk to the coffee shop for breakfast, Sparky’s for happy hour or Key Colony Inn for a great dinner. The condo complex is small enough to offer a feeling of intimacy with your surroundings, but large enough to offer all of the amenities that you expect for your Keys’ Oceanside vacation. I was impressed with how beautifully maintained and tropical it felt. My husband and I have stayed in several areas of the Keys and by far this is our favorite location and the best stocked rental we have ever had. Shirley has thought of EVERYTHING. Our most favorite moments were dinners we prepared at the grill down by the water. We always eat late, so it was dark and we would sit at the picnic table under the Tiki hut with the pretty lights on and listen to the Red Sox games on the IPhone (my husband’s idea) while we ate. We always had it to ourselves, which allowed the IPhone thing! Oh, and one important thing on our vacations…sleep. The bed was comfortable for my bad back and you can’t hear your neighbors, so we slept like babies. And finally, Shirley and the onsite manger were delightful to work with. You won’t be disappointed.

Manager response: I Thank you for your great review. I never solicit reviews, your time is valuable. It pleases me so I have to admit when our clients have a great time. Its a great place and hard not to love. Remember as a client of #8 you are always our priority and we will get you the best rate possible. We want you to come back again and again and think of the unit as home.
We rented the condo from Oct. 20 to 27. From the time we arrived to the time we left, we were extremely happy. The condo was beautiful, clean and well maintained. Everything we needed was available. The view and beach area were better than expected. We will definitely rent there again. Mehgan was great to work with and made our visit enjoyable.

Manager response: Thanks so much for enjoying our little piece of paradise. We want your stay perfect, memorable and filled with the joy of life. Please come back again and again.
The Condo was everything it claimed to be (everything in working order, clean, grounds were very nicely maintaned). Owner & property manager were very informative, helpful, and easy to work with. Very quiet (off-season visit) with great beach & pool. Condo was well equipped with everything in working order and very comfortable. Several good restaurants within walking distance - especially liked Sparky's on the Causway. Great daily appetizer specials (25 cent Wings & peel-n-eat shrimp) and drink specials. Lots of TVs for the football fans. Don't miss the Sea Turtle Rescue & Hospital facility. Wooden Spoon for a great locals breakfast and the Brass Monkey to mingle with locals over a drink. Live music as well. The Cracked Conch supplied my first taste of Conch - very good. Sunset on the old 7-mile bridge is fabulous followed up with a cocktail at The Sunset Grill. We're Moose Lodge members, so managed to go to 3 of the 5 Lodges in The Keys. Once again, friendly locals and good food & drink for members. I loved our visit and will, hopefully, come again!

A little taste of paradise!!
A little taste of paradise!!
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. We absolutely loved it! THe first day we went down to the beach, I said to my hubby, this is my idea of paradise!! The condo was stocked with everything you could possible need. It was right on the beach. Most of the time we had the beach and the pool to ourselves. The beach was beautiful, the water very warm, most days we spent at least half the day at the beach! Key Colony Beach is perfect if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of busy Key West, but close enough to drive there and enjoy the sights! Some of the restaurants we enjoyed were Cabanna Breezes, Leighan's Coffee house (the best French toast I've ever had!). Sparkys Landing was great too, saw dolphins while we had our lunch! Sunset Bar and Grill was a fun place, saw tons of tarpons off the pier!!! If you do go to Key West, Sloppy Joe's is a fun place, and Mallory's Square is a must for entertainment and a beautiful sunset. I thoroughly recommend this condo.. Shirley was very sweet and helpful, as was Meghan there on site. We would love to come back again!!

Fabulous place to stay! Condo has an open layout kitchen with everything you could want and more! It also had beach stuff, coolers, even a fishing pole! Furniture was nice and comfy and the whole place was well decorated. The balcony off the master bedroom had a side view of the ocean and from the living room a bistro set allowed you to have coffee and watch the swimming pool activity. Being on the beach was so much fun. In July the water temperature was perfect to swim and snorkel. We rented a kayak for the week and saw five manatees from our kayak. We watched them for an hour, they even swam under our kayak a couple of times! My fifteen year old son is still talking about what a great time he had. Plus full deposit was returned within a week. We will be back!

Year Purchased: 1996
About: Coming from the midwest we have always traveled far and wide for scenery. Our lakefront is superb but the west called and called us. Every vacation was out west in the mountains. Until 1995 when we came to Seaisle. Truly it stopped us in our tracks and we never looked back. Since then we remodeled the unit to suit every weary traveler. We have tried to make our vacation home comfortable for all who stay with us. We want you to feel at home from the moment you arrive. Come and see why.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We enjoy sitting at the beach watching dolphins feed, manta rays jumping out of the water, an occational manatee swimming through the turtle grass. We delight in cooking & dining at the waters edge under the Tiki Hut. It is also a pleasure to walk amongst the lush tropical landscape or along the beach.
