"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 time celebrating the holidays in KCB. The home has everything you could possibly need for a great time. You don't even have to bring beach towels. We were there with our son and granddaughter to celebrate with other family members staying in the area. The house was large enough so that everyone had their own space. Furniture and beds were comfortable and in good condition. My son complained about the sun coming into the middle bedroom very early in the morning even with the blinds closed. Very relaxing sitting on the canal watching the manatees, kayakers, paddleboards etc. Location is convenient to restaurants, beaches and stores. A little annoying that the speed limit is 25 MPH in KCB. The bicyclists and joggers were going faster than the cars! We took the bus w/o any problems to Key West for New Years Eve which was an experience to say the least. Lots of fun but exhausting! We never did get to use the pool at the Cabana Club , but did walk down to Inch beach. We didn't realize we had to bring our own chairs however, so I would suggest driving even though it wasn't too far. We rented a kayak for 24 hours which was delivered right to the house. All in all we had a great time. I would recommend this house for your next vacation...especially when it's freezing up north."

"My husband and I stayed a week at Casa Sueno del Mar at the end of May 2015. The house and pool area were spectacular. After a long winter and tax season the purpose of our vacation was to fish, boat, swim, eat and sleep. This house was the perfect setting for all of the above. A high school girlfriend and her two daughters joined us the first weekend and all of us had a great time swimming in the pool and fishing off the dock. When we weren’t grilling at the house we’d venture out to one of the restaurants the owners recommended. We were never disappointed. If you’re heading to the Key’s for a vacation we highly recommended Casa Sueno del Mar. We will definitely be back!"

"This condo is a gem at Sea Isle. It's one of two ground level units that is ocean front. The view is amazing! The condo is furnished nicely and the bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable. It was located in a perfect spot as we ventured toward the lower keys for various activities for some of our stay. There is a lot to do in Marathon as well. We will definitely return for another stay."
