Beautiful upscale Key Colony Beach ground level half duplex decorated with a Tommy Bahama theme. This Non-Smoking unit has a private 37' boat dock/seawall that is only 20' from the two sliding glass doors. The view is fantastic. Fishing and dolphin and manitee sightings from the patio? You bet. There is a fish cleaning station for cleaning the days catch. If you choose to eat it, put your 'catch of the day' on the new Weber gas grill. If not you can store it in the freezer in the garage. The garage is available for parking your vehicle with outside space available for additional vehicles. The home is located near the mouth of the canal with short, easy access to the Ocean and to the Gulf by way of the Vaca Cut.
The home has been furnished with everything you should need to enjoy your stay. If you think we have missed something, let us know. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, pots and pans, dishes and glassware, and a dishwasher to clean them. Yes we have a small wine cooler. Just add the food. The master bedroom and one guest room have king beds. The third bedroom has two twin beds. Linens and towels are provided. Time to wash the linens? A full size washer and dryer are also provided.
Do you want to eat inside or outside? We have made provisions for both. There are table and chairs waiting for you at both locations.
Be our guest at two private clubs. The first is the Cabana Beach Club with an Olympic sized pool, bar, and access to the beach. The second is Inch Beach, a private gated beach just off the end of our street. This is a great place to enjoy the ocean and get away from the crowd at the pool. Another attraction is the evening pilgrimage to Sunset Beach where the locals and visitors go to say good night to the sun and enjoy a glass of their wine or other beverage. Musical groups have been known to attend the happening and serenade the setting sun.
KCB is a safe, slow paced city on an island. A 25 mph speed limit on the entire island is strictly enforced. A sign the reads 'Honestly Now, What's Your Hurry? You Are Here.' greets you as you enter our community. Major modes of transportation include biking and walking. There are several bike rental shops in Marathon that will deliver to your door. Speaking of walking, three bars and restaurants are within walking distance on the island. Many more are within biking distance. Major grocery stores and retail stores are within 4 miles.
KCB is truly an Island Paradise where the weather is almost always perfect. Think of it as a piece of the Tropics or Caribbean that is in the USA. (TropiCaribbean-get it?) You will be 53 miles from the most southern tip of the United States (Key West) and 53 miles from the main land. All the traffic goes through Marathon leaving KCB out of the main stream.

Year Purchased: 2011
About: We are Minnesotans that love to travel, bike, boat, hike, and garden. We live on Prior Lake in Minnesota. And yes, we are retired.
Why Key Colony Beach: We visited KCB in 2002 and stayed with friends that have a place there. That was the start of a love affair with the island. In January we started looking for a place in Florida and KCB was where it would be with its unique layout of waterfont property, friendly people, great restaraunts and watering holes, and totaly relaxed atmosphere.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: The location is about as good as it gets with its proximity to the Ocean and the Gulf. The access to the private clubs, the ability to catch fish from your patio chair, and so many other things make this a unique place and experience.
