It's tough living in Paradise, but someone has to do it. When we built our dream home in the Keys we also built two others next door, just like ours. We hope to share them with you through Home Away.
Because we live here, we know where all the best spots are to fish, dive and dine. We believe in sharing our homes and all the information you need to maximize your vacation in The Keys. We are here for you.
Our side by side duplexes are located at the open end of the 3rd St canal in KCB. The canal opens into Bone Fish Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. A short trip around KCB gets you into Florida Bay (about 10 min).
We are one block away from the Ocean Beach(Cabana Club) and 100' from the bay.

We had a great stay in a beautiful property. Very nice location and very nice views. The people are very friendly, and very helpful, with anything we needed. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
Great home, excellent location, amazing owners!
We loved our stay at Peter & Blanche's home. They were beyond accommodating & we plan a return trip. The pictures of this home do not do it justice. We highly recommend renting from them!
Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure to meet you and the family, including your well behaved family pets. Looking forward to having everyone come back.
Great Property and Owners!
This property is extremely clean and well stocked. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. We highly recommend this property for family vacationing. It is very close to fishing, snorkeling and the sandbar, it is within walking distance to the Cabana Club to use the pool and restaurant. We will be back!
Great location, value and owners. Highly Recommended!
We loved this home for our family. The location was perfect. Grocery stores, restaurants, pharmacies, and a K-mart were within 10 minutes of the rental. The neighborhood was very quiet and safe. There was a playground a street away from the house. My son and daughter fished every afternoon after our beach and pool time and caught a lot of fish ( Catch and release since none of them were big enough to keep). Peter let us borrow 2 fishing rods and gave my kids great pointers since I was not a fishing expert. We saw a manatee in the canal during our stay. Coco Plum beach and Sombrero beach were a short 10 minutes or less drive from the house. Bahai Honda - which had great snorkeling from the beach-was less than 30 minutes away. The cabana club was great - the pool and beach never felt crowded...
Peter and Blanche were friendly, very responsive and were great to talk to. They let us borrow a cooler for our trips to the beach and Key West. Peter suggested great spots for snorkeling, restaurants, and was an encyclopedia of the fauna and flora in the area.
This was a great place and would definitely rent this home again every time we go back to the Keys...
Had a great time spending time with Peter/ Blanche
We loved our week with Peter and Blanche, so sorry to write a late review. Peter helped us launch our boat , gave us charts to find fish in the conditions we were in. Helped with a trailer issue before we left. They were gracious Owner's that gave us the privacy we wanted and gave us the info we needed. Peter I can not thank you enough for helping Hubby launch the boat and driving the trailer back so I did not have to. You also helped with driving the trailer to pick up the boat, THANKS! I so much appreciated your help. They are gracious lovely people, we so much enjoyed our stay, this is a great clean neat and every thing we wanted place to stay! All fives for them and the house!
Great place to stay/Would defiantly recommend
This place was great. Upon arrival we found the place to extremely clean and very well equipped. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything you need to prepare meals. The location is perfect, although we did not bring our boat, the dock is on a wide deep canal and located at the end of the canal so it is a quick trip to open water to either side. There is also a decent public boat ramp very close on the Gulf side. The house in located at the end of a cul-de-sac and is very secure. I noticed officers patrolling the neighborhood often. The amenities like the use of an ice makers, washer/dryer, gas grill and covered parking were an added bonus. A short 5-10 minute walk and you are at a nice pool, tiki bar and small beach. Pete is a wealth of knowledge from the history of Key Colony to the best places for happy hours and dining. Both Pete and Blanch are very nice and accommodating. I would defiantly go back.
Key Colony Beach is a city located in the heart of the keys. We are between Key Largo and 50 miles from Key West. There are several excellent restaurants here as well as a 9 hole golf course. If you need to rent a boat, there is an excellent company here to help.
Other Activities: Basketball, Horseshoes,pickle ball, bocce ball, tennis,Boating, Parasailing
