About Dee

My dad, Gerald Smith originally bought this duplex for family vacation and have SO many wonderful memories! He and my mom loved it so much there, they eventually moved to Key Colony Beach! They lived in KCB for about 10 years, they sold 1/2 of the duplex, enjoying Keys life in the other half. A few years later, due to decline in health, they moved closer to children.

Since moving to the " mainland" we decided to make their keys home available to others so that they could make their own keys memories with their families and friends and enjoy it as much as our family has and continues to do when we can

Dee purchased this house in 1970

Guestbook comments from the owner

Gerald & Dee - thanks so much for letting us use your place during lobster season. We had a blast. The weather was great, the seas were calm, and your place was an absolutely perfect place to hang out and relax in between trips out on the water. The spacious rooms, and open living and kitchen areas all make for a great spot to spread out and relax. But the best part is outside. Hanging out by the water, cooking our day's catch fresh on the grill, while watching the coconuts blow in the breeze....perfect!! We'll be back next year!

Excellent location, great house with lots of room inside and an outstanding outside area. Amenities galore including bikes to take you to the private beach or the pool club. We didnt want to leave and certainly want to return.

Owner's Response: I am sure you were aware a MAJOR Hurricane blew through the Florida Keys 4 months before your arrival causing catastrophic damage to most of the Keys, our home included and most of the surrounding homes. We were fortunate to have completed our renovations the morning of your arrival but most have not been as lucky to complete theirs and are working tirelessly to have their home back. I apologize for any “noise” you had to contend with for others trying to renuild and I even forgave the fee you had incurred against your deposit for failure to put out the trash after you had “mentioned” it was a little noisy which was more than fair. I do feel a 3 star rating is quite unfair under the circumstances, your review should have been on our home alone, not surrounding homes and I hope other potential guests reading this will see all of our 5 star reviews and keep in mind what residents and owners have been through and are working their tails off to bring the keys back to what it was. Most homes are nearing completion and all will be releived to have their homes back better than before.

Little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family absolutely loved our stay at Dee's for lobster mini season. In the past we have always stayed in motels in Marathon with very little room. Dee's home was very clean, roomy, comfy, beautifully decorated and over exceeded our expectations. We had all the emenities of home and having our boat docked literally steps away made loading and unloading our dive gear and supplies a breeze. We all loved sitting out on the back lanai early morning sipping our coffee. (Even brought a fan to supply a cool breeze in our July heat). My grandchildren enjoyed going to the Cabana Club pool for a swim most days before dinner. Dee has been a pleasure to talk with and very prompt with answering all my questions that pop up. We would definitely recommend her beautiful home and hope we will be able to come back again. Thank you Dee 😊?
