Key Colony Beach house description

Are you looking to go to a place where life is less complicated, less hurried and immensely more enjoyable?
If so look no farther than the Florida Keys! In the Keys, time is on your side. Adventure and excitement are found at your pace and at the end of the day you return to your own vacation home and relax on your dock with not a care in the world.
Located in the heart of the Florida Keys, Key Colony Beach is a short walk, car or boat ride from the main attractions of the Keys region. Water sports are king and if you like fishing, you have your choice of world-class deep-sea, flats fishing, fly fishing or just wading in the water to catch your dinner.. A private 37.5 foot dock is right outside your door. Fishing, diving, snorkeling, touring, sunbathing, or just lounging on the deck or at a nearby club or beach are all available depending on your mood. Tennis courts, a par three golf course, bocce ball courts, and children's playgrounds are all within an easy stroll.
Your vacation rental includes a membership at the Key Colony Beach Cabana Club and Inch Beach, both are short walk or bike ride away. The Cabana Club has a full size pool, sandy beach and an authentic Tiki bar. Beverages and food are available at your request. At Inch Beach you will find a private sandy beach, picnicking facilities with a grill and a large grassy area for children.
Within a few more steps, Sunset Park is the place to wind down your day. The sunset views are amazing and throughout the year free concerts are held at Sunset Park, just before sunset. Bring your lounge chairs, coolers and snacks-relax, listen to the music and watch the sunset.
The vacation house is a 1600 foot half duplex located on a wide canal facing east. The deck is the perfect place to enjoy the sunrise at breakfast, have an afternoon nap or toast the day with a cocktail and a great Keys seafood dinner-with your “ catch of the day “. We have installed a fence around the periphery of the deck to make it safer for children and adults alike. The step down dock is accessible through a lockable gate. The dock itself is 37.5 feet long and can easily accommodate most average fishing boats. Fish cleaning facilities are located on the dock and a ice machine is located nearby.
The duplex itself has been recently renovated and contains upscale furniture throughout The bedrooms all have large flatscreen TVs as well as iPad/iPod dockable him and clock radios. All of the rooms have ceiling fans. The kitchen has granite surfaces and stainless steel appliances as well as gourmet cooking equipment. Preparing your catch after a successful day of fishing will be a snap. Don't forget that your favorite vintage is waiting in the built-in wine cooler!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: We grew up in Michigan and went to school there until moving to the Pacific Northwest 35 years ago. Even though we were in the Pacific Northwest we vacationed in the Florida Keys as often as possible. On retirement we moved to St. Augustine and continued coming to the Keys on a regular basis. We have owned A townhouse on Duck Key for 14 years. When this duplex became available earlier this year we knew that it would be an ideal location for relaxing, boating and fishing.

                      Why the Owner Chose Key Colony Beach:
                      This duplex is located in the heart of Key Colony Beach on 10th St. it's a short walk and even a shorter bike ride to most of the amenities in the city. This includes the Cabana club, a beach and pool club with a private tiki bar. It's also less than a quarter-mile from Inch Beach and Sunset Park. The street is in a quiet neighborhood and does not have a high volume of traffic.At least three restaurants are located within walking/biking distance. Many other good restaurants are located in the city of Marathon and other places in the adjacent keys within a reasonable drive.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Sitting on the spacious deck guests are able to enjoy a beautiful Florida Keys sunrise or watch fish play in the evening around the specially installed underwater light. The deck has been fenced to provide safety for children. For fishermen there is a dedicated ice maker and bait freezer. For the gourmet cook in the group there is a fully appointed modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a gas stove. A wine cooler is available to keep your favorite vintage at the right temperature for when you return from a day of relaxation or play.
