About Sherwood & Autumn Danoff

When I (Sherwood) discovered the Florida Keys in the 1970s I immediately fell in love with the idea of fishing yearround in the beautiful blue waters of the FL Keys. As an avid fisherman, living in NY, I could not get enough time on the water so I moved to south FL and built my first home on Key Colony Beach. This house was built in 1994. My wife (Autumn) is from Miami and grew up on the water so the Keys are perfect for both of us. We enjoy snorkeling, lobstering, fishing, and cruising.

Sherwood & Autumn Danoff purchased this house in 1994

Why Sherwood & Autumn Danoff chose Key Colony Beach

The first time I drove over the Vaca Cut bridge in Marathon I watched a young man catching tarpon. He offered me to join him and I immediately hooked onto a tarpon. It was quite a thrill. The next day I purchased a lot on Key Colony Beach. I chose Key Colony because it has access to both the ocean and FL Bay (via the Vaca Cut Bridge)without having to run far. It is a wonderful peaceful community with recreation, parks and a jogging path. When we moved to a larger home in 1994 we stayed on Key Colony.

What makes this house unique

The house is at 1230 Coury Drive (west side of Key Colony). Sunset Park is a short walk across the street. The beautiful sandy private beach (Inch Beach), of which we belong, is also a short walk from the house. The Cabana Club is on the East side of Key Colony and is approximately a 10-15 minute walk.

Great location, Well-equipped Vacation Home, Perfect for a Week at the Keys!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a week over Christmas and we all had a fantastic time. The mid-Keys location is great, attractions and beaches are a short drive away and there is a private beach just 5 minute walk away from the house! The house is in a quiet part of Key Colony Beach, far enough from route 1 to feel serene but still just 15 minutes to Publix. Well set up for outdoor dining on the canal dock, and the interior furnishings are lovely. The house just has a friendly, lively feel to it. The owners made the rental process straightforward and they were extremely responsive and helpful. I recommend this rental unreservedly.

Beautiful home in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This house is so beautiful. Such a nice neighborhood surrounded by other beautiful homes. Right on the canal. Great for kayaking. The wildlife was amazing. Iguanas on the dock every day. Pelicans in the canal. Very close to Sunset Park. Short drive to Sombrero Beach, the Turtle Hospital, the Aquarium, and food stores. The beds are very comfortable. House is stocked with anything you could possibly need. Nice quiet setting. We couldn't have asked for a nicer vacation. Owners are very friendly and quick to respond to any questions.

Pictures don't this home justice. This home was well stocked with anything you might need. A short walk to Sunset Park and it's nightly ritual with the locals at sunset is a must. The owners were wonderful and answered any questions we had promptly. With access to a private beach and cabana club, you really don't have to leave KCB community for anything. The restaurants are good. There are also boat rentals, sunset cruises, snorkeling and kayak rentals available all within KCB. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to make a return visit ourselves!

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Right from the start, the owners were very helpful and easy to work with. They answered all our questions and were very pleasant. The home is just lovely, located right on the canal. The pictures are spot on and the location is great. We rented a boat and highly recommend that for others. We did our own snorkeling and had a blast (sombrero reef, coffins patch, looe key). The waters are so clear! It was great to have access to Inch beach (small but pretty deserted) as well as the Cabana pool and beach club (small and crowded). Beaches and pool access are hard to come by on Key Colony so those amenities were great extras to have. The home is very spacious and well-decorated. The kitchen was well-stocked and the owners even had soap, laundry detergents, dishwashing liquid, etc. - all the amenities you don't expect to find in a home rental but are pleasantly surprised to have! This was our first trip to the Keys and we will definitely return. We would absolutely stay at this place again and would highly recommend this rental to anyone! Our best meal was at Barracuda's grill - awesome food!

A piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This house is large, luxurious, spotlessly clean, and I would recommend this to anyone staying in the area.

From start to finish the owner was helpful and informative, without being intrusive. The house itself is well equipped, with everything you could think of in the kitchen, and a lovely big BBQ outside. There was plenty of seating inside and out with the whole house being very spacious. The bedrooms are huge, and beautifully decorated, and the bathrooms were positively massive! There was a massive TV, but we tended to put some music on, open the doors to the terrace and sit outside with a glass of wine and the BBQ on. You can see the ocean from the front balconies, and they are great for just sitting and watching the world go by. However my favourite spot was sitting on the private dock. Whilst there are houses all around it doesn't feel hemmed in as they all are well spaced apart, and being at the end of the canal, it felt very private.

As for Key Colony Beach, well we loved it. Everyone is very friendly. We spent some days relaxing at the Cabana Club. Whilst not the prettiest pool area the beach is lovely, the food was good and it had a good atmosphere. We spent some afternoons and early evening on the private Inch Beach, a great spot to watch the passing dolphins. We liked that whilst you share the beach with others, it never got busy, sometimes we were the only ones there.

In the evenings we tried two of the restaurants on Key Colony Beach. The Key Colony Inn was about a 5 minute walk away and was nice, but not amazing. The food was good, but we felt that it was mainly for the older folk. We then tried Sparkys Landing and decided we didn't need to venture any further. The food was good and varied, it had a fantastic atmosphere with the locals all taking time to chat, it had a nice view over the canal, and some nights live music. We loved it there.

We were close enough to everything that we wanted to do, and felt that staying in the middle of the keys was the right choice for exploring up or down, and even over to the Everglades.

All in all, if you are looking for luxury, in a peaceful and beautiful spot with a few restaurants close by, then this is the place for you, and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it.

Luxury 3000 square foot home on Canal in Key Colony

  • 5 of 5

Arriving in the evening was the beginning of a most magical experience. Our week started as we stood outside of the homes tranquilly lite driveway and front entrance. This beautiful home is positioned amongst multi million dollar propertys, beaches and restaurants.

The inside of the home itself boasts eleganct spaciousness. We spent many evenings on the patio(s) enjoying the sunset and the water canal view. The owners provided every convenience you could possible need, from umbrellas, beach chairs, BBQ and a fully stocked kitchen. This home is truly and gem and we were never dissappointed

We were able to dock our boat right at the property and jet out the canel to either the Guelph or the Atlantic.

Marathon has all of the conveniences you would ever need.
