Wonderful escape from Winter
"What a great way for us to escape the winter! There were so many things about this rental that were perfect for us. All of the rooms are big and open/airy. Lots of space, even in the bathrooms. There are ceiling fans in the bedrooms, dining room, and living room.
The kitchen was equipped with everything a cook could want. Lots of pots, pans, baking dishes, and even gadgets! We brought some "kitchen essentials" with us and never needed to unpack our box -- everything was already there. Things you simply don't expect in a rental were provided here -- enough flatware for several meals and more than a dozen lovely wine glasses. There is plenty of counter space for the most ambitious cook.
There is a new Weber gas grill on the patio, but do be aware that renters need to provide the propane. If you are lucky, there will still be some leftover from the previous renters. Since we were there for the month, we used the grill for many meals.
Being on the canals provides the entertainment of passing boats, iguanas, and pelicans. This location provides morning sun and afternoon shade. It was great to be able to sit on the patio with morning coffee or an afternoon libation and surf the Internet on the provided WIFI.
We loved going to the Cabana Club for the pool, hot tub, and beach. Having a full bar and food service there made it a regular day's event.
Key Colony is very friendly to walkers and bicycles. It is possible to walk or bicycle pretty much anywhere on the island. We regularly traveled this way to the pool, the local post office, or out to eat.
Some of the places we enjoyed include:
Sparky's for fish tacos and happy hour wings/shrimp.
The food from Cabana Breezes that is served at Cabana Club
Tarpon Lodge for happy hour appetizer and drink specials
Fish Tales for lunch, great fish/seafood buys, and prime steaks for the grill
Marathon Lady for a fishing trip
The Hurricane for a great $5 fish sandwich at lunch
Burdines for a killer tuna melt
You can't miss going to Sunset beach to watch the sun go down and join the locals in a serenade about how great it is to be in Marathon Key -- courtesy of local musician John Bartus.
This rental provides the serene quiet of Key Colony Beach, but the convenience of grocery, drug stores, and many restaurants are within a few miles in the rest of Marathon Key. What a great home away from home for us!"

"We had a wonderful and relaxing time at Key Colony Beach. The unit was very clean and had everything we needed for a great vacation. If we had a problem, the property managers, Bernie and Deeda were quick to see to our needs. Our son had a blast fishing every night from the dock right outside the door. The Cabana Club and Inch Beach are great places to visit and relax. The location is very convenient to shopping and restaurants. We hope to return in the future!!"
