Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: WE LIVE IN LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY WHERE WE RUN A SMALL, FAMILY BUSINESS WITH OUR SON. WE HAVE VISITED THE KEYS REGULARLY SINCE 1994 AND PURCHASED OUR FIRST HALF-DUPLEX RENTAL UNIT ON KEY COLONY BEACH IN 1998. WE LOVE THE LAID-BACK ATMOSPHERE, THE OUTDOOR RESTAURANTS ON THE TURQUOISE WATER, FISHING, SNORKELING/DIVING, THE HISTORY, THE PARKS, THE FLOWERS, VISITING KEY WEST AND THE OTHER KEYS. WE LOVE THE WEATHER, THE BLUE SKY, THE OCEAN, THE SUNSETS. WE TRAVEL TO THE KEYS 4 OR MORE TIMES EACH YEAR TO MAINTAIN OUR PROPERTY AND OF COURSE TO 'RELAX & PLAY' THERE. WE KEEP OUR BOAT AT THE DOCK IN FRONT OF OUR HOME AND ENJOY CATCHING AND EATING FRESH MAHI MAHI, GROUPER, SNAPPER.WAHOO, WE ENJOY DOING NOTHING, SITTING ON DECK ALONG CANAL ENJOYING A PINA COLADA OR COFFEE OR WHATEVER. WE ENJOY GRILLING OUR FRESH CATCH ON THE DECK.
Why the Owner Chose Key Colony Beach, FL, USA:
WE RENTED HOMES PRIOR TO PURCHASING OUR FIRST HOUSE ON KEY COLONY BEACH IN 1998 (A 1/2 DUPLEX UNIT - LATER BOUGHT SECOND 1/2 AND IN 2004 PURCHASED OUR CURRENT SINGLE-FAMILY RENTAL COTTAGE ON 12TH STREET) BECAUSE WE LOVED THE AREA SO MUCH. WE LOVE THE FACT THAT IF WE CHOOSE TO, WE CAN DRIVE TO THE KEYS AND GET AWAY TO THE 'ISLANDS' OR WE CAN FLY INTO MIAMI, RENT A CAR AND DRIVE 100 MILES TO PARADISE. WE LOVE THE MIDDLE KEYS AS OPPOSED TO KEY WEST, BUSIER AND MORE CONGESTED - THO A FUN PLACE TO 'VISIT'. THE FISHING IS THE 'BEST' JUST OFF SHORE AS IS THE SNORKELING/DIVING. WE CHOSE THE KEYS FOR THE WEATHER. KEY COLONY IS UNIQUE IN THAT IT IS A 'CITY' WITH GOVERNING BODY AND A POLICE FORCE, SEPARATE FROM MARATHON AND REST OF KEYS. KEY COLONY BEACH IS AN ISLAND JUST OFF U.S.1 ON THE OCEAN SIDE. IT IS MOSTLY RESIDENTIAL, QUIET, SAFE, WELL MAINTAINED, HAS THREE RESTAURANTS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE, A GOLF COURSE, CHARTER BOATS AND BEACHES WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE HERE? COME SEE FOR YOURSELF........
