"We have enjoyed our stay! Lots of amenities. The Cabana Club is newly renovated and just spectacular. Lots of folks walk/bike on the path that wends its way around the whole town. There are several restaurants nearby. The Island Fish Co. does a great breakfast as well as cooking your fresh catch. Hope to be repeat renters. Thanks Teresa!"

"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 stayed at Carole's property for the week of Nov 7-14, 2015. The pictures of the house were accurate and the house was perfect for the two couples that stayed there. The two king bed rooms, each with their own ensuite bath were excellent! Very difficult to come up with any complaints. We did have a small issue with the internet one day because the city had to turn the power off for an hour or so to replace a hydro pole. When the power came back on, the internet was out and we couldn't get it working again. Great communication from Carole as I had to contact Comcast about the issue. They were going to send a technician a day or two later which really would've inconvenienced our plans but fortunately, everything came back on later that evening so no need to change our plans.
The location was great for us as we were doing activities both in Key Largo and Key West so we were about halfway between both. Cabana club was nice with a beautiful infinity pool and a nice little beachfront. Service was good there as well! We were able to walk to the club from the house which was nice if you wanted to have a couple drinks and not worry about driving. :)
All in all, we would recommend the place to our friends and family. It was clean, comfy and the mornings on the deck with a coffee were fantastic! Well worth the very reasonable price we paid!
Thank you Carole for a great week!
Kevin, Rhonda, Bryan and Melissa"
