About Jean Hering

We love the outdoors, and all the activities that this involves- boating, fishing, 'beaching', tennis and golf. Good restaurants are another of our favorites, whether eating at picnic tables or fine dining.

Jean Hering purchased this house in 2008

Why Jean Hering chose Key Colony Beach

Because we have spent our life in the airline business, we have travelled most of the world. Key Colony Beach is still a very special place for us, which is why we bought a vacation home here. We still love coming here, and discover something new and delightful every time.

What makes this house unique

One of our favorite activities is the drive to Key Colony Beach, with the ocean views from the bridges, and the feeling of coming home to a place we can relax and enjoy the wonderful warm sunshine. Special times for us are morning walks to the coffee shop or evening walks to Sunset Park to see the unbelievable sunsets.

We have a lime tree on our property, and love the fresh limes for an afternoon drink.

Great house canal side

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. Lots of space for me and my husband and our 2 teenage sons. We loved being canal side. We don't even have a boat. But my sons really enjoy fishing and they fished in the canal all the time. We saw stingrays in the canal and 2 nurse sharks. The Cabana Club is included in the rental. We swam 3 times, it's a beautiful pool. We had a super vacation. As an FYI, kayaking from Robbie's Marina to Indian Key was fabulous. Also great fun to feed the tarpon at Robbie's. Snorkeling at Looe Reef was another highlight. We took the boat out of Bahia Honda State Park. Excellent experience. Key Colony Beach is a good location in the keys.

Owner's Response: Jeanne it was a pleasure working with you and glad you had a fantastic time! I'll make sure you have a DVD player...LOL. I could have had one dropped off for you...the new tv wasn't compatible with the 3 year old DVD player and our Radio Shack closed. Let me know the weeks you want next year as soon as you know so I can pencil you in....

Margot's Place

  • 5 of 5

From the beautiful sunrises in the morning to the spectacular sunsets in the evening, we enjoyed being guests at Margot's Place. The living area is spacious and the kitchen is very well equipped. Most importantly, the beds are exceptionally comfortable as are the recliners in the living room. We especially enjoyed dinners on the deck overlooking the boats on the canal and the skyline of KCB with palm trees swaying in the breeze. We were within walking or biking distance to pickleball, par 3 golf, tennis, beautiful Inch Beach, and all of the restaurants on KCB. We launched our kayaks from the dock in front of the property and enjoyed boat rides and occasional sunset cruises. Many hours were spent just relaxing in the beautifully landscaped yard while reading a good book. Whether you prefer activity or quiet, Margot's Place is a perfect vacation spot!

Perfect stay in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We, 3 adults and 2 kids stayed for 2 weeks in this great place. Everything about our stay was perfect. The island, inch beach, the pool at the Cabana club and the house itself. It's situated in walking distance to all these great places. Its very spacious and well equipped with everything you need, especially towels. Also a great plus were the people we met there. The neighbor took us out three times for snorkeling and fishing. Never had such an experience of kindness! Snorkeling at Sombrero beach lighthouse was just awesome! We saw dolphins, sea turtles and bull sharks.

We highly recommend this place as there is nothing negative about it. It's just perfect.

And last but not least we want to thank Jean for the best booking procedure we ever had! This was outstanding!!!

We will definitely return to this place as this was the 3rd time on the Keys and there was no place which comes even close!

Perfect Getaway Spot

  • 5 of 5

2 couples stayed over. House is well-located 2 minute drive from Marathon and easy striking distance to Key West. The place was spotless and very comfortable for 2 couples. Jean was fantastic at providing tips and very helpful. Having access to the private beach and to the cabana club with pool and beach was a very nice add. Quiet spot on the canal, with a dock for boating. Really enjoyed our time here and would not hesitate to recommend that others take the opportunity to stay here - it has just about everything you could ask for or need.

The best Hidden Gem of Marathon

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place was great. Jean was very helpful anything we needed she was there to help. The house has everything you need. Where do I start we walked to Inch Beach very private if that is what you want. Other days we would go to the Cabana club. Much more activity Music, Food, Drinks, Beach, Pool very friendly staff. After a long day at the beach we would fish off the Dock each night with the iguanas. On the house instructions when you arrive it states do not swim in the bay because of bull sharks. We thought that was a joke. Trust me it's not a joke each night we would see 4-5 foot sharks swim by. I would recommend Havana's it's a beach restaurant next to the Cabana club. Very nice place on the ocean with music. We will be back soon Jean!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Greg! It was a joy meeting you and your friends. And thank you also for mentioning the of our guests from my old rental, Gecko House, swam in Shelter Bay and his foot was bitten by a shark and spent the next 4 days at Fisherman's Hospital recuperating from surgery instead of enjoying his vacation. Safety first...and look forward to hearing from you, or your friends again!
