We are pleased to announce that our little piece of paradise came through Hurricane Irma with flying colors! The only damage we sustained was flooding in the ground level storage and the landscaping took a hit, but everything else is untouched.
Fish from our dock, one of the nearby piers or bridges, with a charter captain from the marina in walking distance or bring your boat and dock it right outside your door! Less than 10 minutes to open water in the bay.
Come to our piece of paradise in Key Colony Beach. Everything you need to relax is close to this rental home--white sand beach and heated pool private club membership is a 4 minute walk (or 2 minute bike ride with the cruiser bikes for you to use at the house), three full service restaurants, a wine bar, bakery and breakfast hangout, boutique, gift shops and liquor store all in walking distance, or sit on your private lanai overlooking the canal. If you are feeling a bit more adventurous, drop a line (fishing poles and tackle are included in your rental) in the canal from the dock, or take the tandem kayak for a spin around the island.
We have vacationed here too! It is lovely and romantic for just us when we want some "alone time" and great fun with our children as well--the house is set up to cater to couples and children. However you come, ours is a laid back tropical paradise with everything you need at your fingertips. 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 6. Walk to the Cabana Club (private pool and beach, membership included in your rental) just a block away from this beauty, or use one of our beach cruiser bikes (4 adult, 2 kid size) to ride to the club or Sunset Park. Fish from the dock (poles available), use our tandem kayak to explore the canals or dock your boat at your "back door" with 30 feet of space. Stainless steel fish cleaning table, electric, shower and hose at the dock. Bait freezer and interior storage are just feet away. Dogs are welcome,and the house is very family friendly.
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 amid 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.
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.
Small pets (dogs under 50 pounds) welcome. This property is family friendly, with amenities ranging from a high chair and port-a-crib to four adult size beach cruiser bikes and two kids bikes and a membership in the private Cabana Club, which is a two block walk away. Our family vacationed in rental homes in Key Colony Beach from the time our youngest was 2 ½ 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. See our website for a complete listing. Boaters can dock in the canal along the house. Just minutes separate you from the open Atlantic and Vaca Cut to access the Gulf of Mexico for fishing and snorkeling. A commercial fishing and snorkeling fleet with full and half day trips is walking distance from the house.

About Sandy Hubbard
We celebrated our first visit to OUR house during Thanksgiving week 2009. Thanksgiving dinner on the lanai--paradise!

Why Sandy Hubbard chose Key Colony Beach

6 weeks in paradise! The landlords were extremely accommodating and helpful with suggestions. All toys (bicycles, kayak, etc.) were available. The property was clean and well-maintained. 5 stars!
Awesome vacation rental!
Our family was there during mini season, and I'm telling you, you could not have wanted more! Sandy has thought of everything. This is an extremely clean, VERY WELL EQUIPPED vacation rental. Close to everything, quiet, and having the boat in back yard was icing on the cake! Thank you!!
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.
Clean- Close to Cabana Club and beach. Great dock for fishing
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
Thank you Sandy & Richard
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!
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).
