About Heather Jones

We love islands, fishing, beaches, and seafood. The Florida Keys have all of this and more.

Heather Jones purchased this house in 2005

Why Heather Jones chose Key Colony Beach

In 2005 we found vacation home paradise in Key Colony Beach. We adore this community because its quiet and offers all the amenities of a small town. The little post office and shops are quaint and friendly. And, best of all, Key Colony is close to other major islands....Key West, Islamorda, Key Largo for more sun and fun.

What makes this house unique

We love go to Sparky's grill and bar (try the Mahi tacos!) for Happy Hour or dinner after a long day of fishing! The Stuffed Pig is one of our favorite breakfast joints. We also enjoy family walks around the island, to watch the sunset, and along the scenic Seven Mile bridge. Key West is an easy drive but, if it's during holiday season, be sure to allow yourself extra time for the traffic. Keep your eyes out for lots of wildlife! We often see large iguanas, manatees, sea turtles, dolphins, and many beautiful birds.

Great Week

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the crazy Mini Season with 3 kids(teenager boys) my father and ourselves. When we first got there the fridge was not cooling correctly but it reset and worked just fine. The house is very nicely decorated and our Bed(the king) was very comfortable. There are plenty of towels and they even had dish towels( this was our 3rd VRBO this summer alone.. Dish towels are normally not found) The house had started set of toilet paper and paper towels. There was left over salt and pepper and a local blackening spice that was very good. The fridge was cleaned out and ready for our stuff no guessing on what was fresh and what wasn't The dishes were nice and useable the coffee pot worked great and made good coffee. The TV's all worked. The internet is a little laggy for Xbox games (not that they played a bunch) The outdoor area is small but it was comfortable. Our 27 foot boat fit perfect and it was easy to turn and dock in the spot. The people renting next to us were very nice(guess we were lucky) The owners answered all our questions and checked on us about the fridge. We enjoyed our stay so much we are headed back next year. This location KBC is perfect for what we were wanting 3 miles to Publix right by a twice, near a boat ramp to launch, near plenty of dive and bait shops, great fishing, diving, near by. The parking can be tight (part of KCB) we had 2 trucks and a boat trailer on our side but if you had a smaller car you could but it in the garage for the week. The bait freezer was a plus we were able to go once to the bait shop get our bait and be done. The way the house is set up it feels bigger than it is. The kitchen had everything we needed and the grill even had gas. Thank You so much for maintaining your property the way you do.

A Wonderful Spot on Key Colony Beach's 10 Street

  • 5 of 5

We spent a really nice month here in April of 2017. Its our 8th or 9th visit to Key Colony Beach , and these Ellison style duplexes are great because they're much roomier than the older 1960's style duplexes, and more modern. The home was clean, well kept , and although we had one minor air conditioning issue, it was quickly fixed the same day, so no complaints at all. The newer Weber gas grill and fish cleaning table with water were bonuses, as well as a bait freezer in garage .

This place is first rate . It has everything you need to stay. The kitchen is well supplied with everything you need. It is decorated with expensive Tommy Bahama decor and furniture throughout including the kitchen supplies. It has beautiful plantation shutters in all rooms. The beds are comfortable too. We have stayed here for 4 years. This year they replaced the washer, dryer, and dishwasher, t.v and it was freshly painted 😀 .

We love sitting on the patio each morning watching the fishing boats going out the canal in front of our place. In the later afternoon it is nice to sit on the patio because it is shaded then. We are on the good side of the canal for this reason. (Happy hour time after staying at the beach all day at the Cabanna Club which is included with the rental.). The shade is appreciated at this time of day.

Anytime we report anything wrong it is always taken care of. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Be careful of the neighbor

  • 1 of 5

This was our second time staying at the house and we really enjoy it. However the neighbor stole our props on the last day of our trip which ruined it for us. We were able to recover them but the police department would not press charges. Just a warning to watch your valuables. The neighbor has a long history with the police.

Nearest Airport
5 Miles
Marathon International Airport

Conveniently located in the heart of the Florida Keys, Key Colony Beach is a private and incorporated community. With it's own Post Office, City Hall, and Police Department you can feel safe and secure in this vacation paradise. Excellent restaurants are within walking distance or if you want to venture by car you can explore the plethora of Florida Keys dining throughout the many islands. On your way to Key West for a day trip, traverse the infamous Seven Mile Bridge with panoramic views and stop in the many small island communities to get acquainted with the people and the Keys lifestyle.

If you like to fish but don't have a boat, visit the Key Colony Marina to rent a boat or venture to Cap'n Hooks for an offshore Party Boat and fish the Hawk Channel. Many fish specifies abound in the waters that surround Key Colony Beach. They include such outstanding table fare as; Tuna, Mahi-Mahi, Grouper, Mackeral, and Snapper. If Flats Fishing with a spinner or fly reel is your game, make reservations with Cap'n Scott Yetter at Catch and release or cook your favorite plate on our Weber gas grill.

If you just want to relax, be our guest at The Cabana Club on Ocean Drive where you can play in the sand, swim in the ocean, or lounge by the pool and sip your favorite beverage.

After fun in the sun take in a movie or experience some very good local talent in action at the Marathon Community Theatre.

Shop the local stores for your favorite island attire and stock your pantry with groceries from Winn-Dixie or Publix in Marathon.

But, if you just want to relax, enjoy the comforts of our well maintained home....we make sure it stays that way because it is also our personal vacation home since 2005.
