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!

Tropical Delight!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 weeks here and it was great. Familiar with KCB for the past 7 years and we wanted to stay on 9th street. Great house and great area, quiet area and canal is quiet too. Saw manatees our first day there, used the bikes a ton and rode all around KCB, used the Cabana Club on the windy days(great pool, beach, snacks). Inch Beach is great too for that private beach get away. We used the kayak 1 time, but we brought our paddle boards and launched from the dock and paddled all over KCB to see more manatees. Restaurants are close too, a 10 min walk to Sparky's for Happy Hour which is totally worth it! We cooked at home all appliances were great, bathrooms were great. My wife and I love the keys and spend everyday out enjoying all what is has to offer and my Jeep loved the car port for the occasional Florida rain shower. The owner too has been nothing but accommodating and easy to work with. Will stay again!

Our stay was absolutely perfect. The home is in perfect condition and was ideal for our fishing vacation. I called Dee several times with questions and she always answered the phone and was very helpful. We hope to book the home again next year for our vacation.
