                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: tropical Retreat was purchased in 2013 by 4 friends that have enjoyed fishing together in Key Colony for over 10 years. One of the owners is a 10+ year resident of Key Colony and will give you the personal attention you deserve on your arrival. We created LACE Properties LLC and purchased this property so that we could not only continue to enjoy all of the amenities that Key Colony offers, but could share with those who feel a need for a little 'Tropical Retreat' for a week or longer themselves.

                      Why the Owner Chose Key Colony Beach:
                      We chose this location because one of the owners is a year round, long term resident of Key Colony which includes its' own Police Force. This home offers all of the comforts of your own home with an onsite owner that will respond and address any issues that may arise. We take great pride in our hands on approach to making your stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      With a wide deep water canal and a 37.5 ft. dock, you can be in the gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic ocean within minutes of casting off. Captain Hook's Bait and fuel dock is readily accessible from end of canal.
