Dogs (maximum 2, additional charge) welcome. This property is family friendly, with amenities ranging from a high chair and port-a-crib to beach cruiser bikes and a membership in the private Cabana Club, which is a 1 1/2 block walk away (no parking hassles!). Our family vacationed in rental homes in Key Colony Beach from the time our youngest was 2 until our oldest was 16, so this property is set up with the things we liked having at rental properties, wished we had, or enjoy ourselves.

Idyllic Town of Key Colony Beach
KCB, as it is known to the locals, is a community that is proud of its reputation of safe and gentle relaxation amidst award winning restaurants and incredible vistas. The island wide automobile speed limit is 25, to accommodate the myriad of walkers and bikers on its streets and designated paths. The town’s wide canals, all of which are no wake zones, abound with tropical fish and wildlife.
The town municipal center and post office are next to a lovely park with a gazebo, and at the end of the same street lay Sunset Park, a well maintained scenic public location for just hanging out and watching spectacular Keys sunsets.
Geographic Midpoint of Florida Keys
At nearly the geographic center of the Florida Keys at mile marker 53, this property is a two hour drive to Miami and just an hour from Key West.

We celebrated our first visit to OUR house during Thanksgiving week 2009. Thanksgiving dinner on the lanai--paradise!
Sandy Hubbard purchased this house in 2009
We vacationed in Key Colony Beach for 10 years prior to purchasing a home here. Every member of our family can close their eyes and go to KCB in our minds for instant relaxation. We are building long term family memories at our home here, and hope you will too!
Our whole family enjoys together time here, free from most outside distractions. This place is the definition of relaxation and paradise for us.
Sorry I didn't get around to writing in the guest book. I do want you to know how much we enjoyed your beautiful home. We just could not have had a better experience with the house or the rental process. We were so impressed with the organization of everything in the house. If we had any questions we were able to go to one of the instructional manuals and get the answer. It was wonderful having the bikes, the kayaks, the well furnished kitchen and so much more provided.
Although I was excited that Key Colony had so much to offer for the kids, they seemed to prefer fishing in the canal most of the time. When we were able to drag them away we were able to enjoy the Cabana Club, Bahia Honda and Sombrero Beach. They enjoyed snorkeling and were able to see a good many fish at these beaches. They loved kayaking up and down the canal in the tandem you provided and we even rented a couple of tandems so that we all could kayak together. We kayaked to Sparky's one day for lunch which thrilled them. I called around and checked prices on kayaks and got a great deal from Key Kayak Rentals. I certainly hope I got the name right because there is another place with a similar name but with much higher prices. Anyway, the man I talked to offered to deliver 2 tandems and leave them 3 days for $100 plus $10 for delivery and pickup. Other places wanted up to $55 per tandem per day so I highly recommend this place.
We made a lot of great memories on this trip with the grandboys. They are getting older 10, 11 and 14 and electronics are taking over their lives, especially for the 14 yo so I don't know how much longer they will be able to gaze anywhere besides down at that phone in their hand. I'm sure this trip is a time with us that they will always remember so that is all that is important.
We appreciate all that you do to make this place so nice and convenient for your guests. We hope to come back again sometime, maybe even next summer.
We enjoyed our stay in Key Colony Beach. Sitting on the balcony in the morning and evening and looking out on the canal was a joy. Sandy gave us tips where to eat and their Happy Hour. We specially liked the Keys Fisheries on 35th street. The Stone Crabs where $ 2.50 a piece and the Tuna-Sashimi and oysters where also yummy. We swam every day at the Sombrero Beach and on a quiet day we went snorkeling at the Sombrero reef with Spirit Snorkeling.
Beautiful Duplex on the canal in Key Colony. Very clean and had everything that we needed. We had a small issue with TV and the owner responded immediately to remedy it,
Enjoyed the Cabana Club pool and Beach on a daily basis. Very well kept pool area, great wait staff. Nice quiet street and very clean.
Cant wait to go back
We had a fantastic stay at this property. The owners do a great job making you feel welcome. Also, they had the place stocked with very convenient things that would otherwise have you making an extra trip to the store.(i.e. band-aids, paper towels, sunscreen) The patio is on the upper level, which allows great views of the sunset and wildlife in and around the canals. I've stayed in more expensive properties on that exact street that weren't as nice or relaxing as this one.
My wife, puppy & I just returned from a 1 week holiday at Sandy & Richards place. Honestly we can't say enough positive things about the property or most especially about Sandy and her approach to providing the best rental experience possible (which it was). The home is beautiful, well placed in a quiet but accessible to everything neighborhood on a lovely canal with a great boat dock. The home is immaculately clean, stocked with everything you might need (including a kayak, 4 new bikes, fishing poles, beach towels & toys, all appliances & kitchen utensils, I mean it goes on & on, plus Sandy is totally sweet, accessible, thoughtful, organized, etc, etc.
We can't wait to stay here again!
We spent 7 days in Key Colony Beach and greatly enjoyed our stay. We especially appreciated the fact that this rental was very well appointed and everything was labeled for easy access. For the week we rented a boat from Captain Hooks (they were also great to work with) and loved the fact that we could dock it right outside of the house to come and go as we pleased. The owners were very helpful and responsive to all questions we had about the rental. We would highly recommend this property and will consider it again when we return!
Great place. Everything you need to make for the perfect vacation Sandy and Richard have provided. Property was spotless and very easy to keep clean. Location wise it couldn't be better. Cabana club almost at the end of the street. Having 4 adult bikes and 2 children's bikes available for our use save us money because there is nothing better than checking out Key Colony Beach but on a bike. Key Colony Beach is centrally located in the middle of the Keys so no matter which direction you drive the attractions are an easy drive away. We stayed 7 weeks this year and are hoping for 8 weeks next year.
Incredible Sunset Views!
We share all our 'toys'--Tandem Kayak, Four (4) Beach Cruiser Bikes and Two (2) Children's Bikes for Your Use. Fish from the dock (poles in storage area), beach toys, life jackets. Snorkel trips and charter fishing boats leave from the end of the canal (a 10 minute walk).
