Why Owner chose Key Colony Beach
We live in Miami, and have always dreamed of having a place in the Florida Keys. Now we've got one, and we couldn't be happier with the lifestyle - boating, fishing, beautiful beaches, and amazing sunsets... As for Casa Sueño del Mar, it is a very special place which manages to make everyone who visits feel at home and pampered while they are there.
What makes this House unique
The city of Key Colony Beach is a lovely, clean, and friendly part of the Florida Keys. There's so much to do like golfing, tennis, fishing, boating, hiking, and walking over to Sunset Park for an amazing sunset every evening. Being located on the water with access to both the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico means you have the best of both worlds and a free pass to adventures of all kinds! Speaking of location, as it so happens we are right in the middle of the Florida Keys, which means you can visit Key Largo, Islamorada or Key West all within an hour or less...and the international city of Miami is only a couple of hours away.

Terrific escape house.
Great hosts with a wonderful home. Everything was as advertised there are no disappointments.
A Gem in Key Colony Beach - the heart of the Florida Keys!
Our family enjoyed a wonderful week’s stay during Christmas 2018!
Let me say that the home is exactly as advertised - warm, clean, cozy and thoughtfully appointed. The home shows as new or recently remodeled.
The three bedrooms were nicely done. Linens were fresh and clean, and the entire home sparkled!
Our favorite feature of the home was the large sectional sofa in the family room. There was plenty of room for 5 adults and an infant to chill out, relax and enjoy quality family time.
Whether our day took us to the beach, a day trip to Key West, or a day on the water pitching live pilchards to hungry sailfish, this house felt like home.
The large dining table was perfect for a meal or family games, cards or an evening cocktail.
The kitchen was well appointed - dishes, glasses, utensils and serving pieces were abundant. A gourmet may have wanted a few more pots and pans, but who wants to cook every night, especially with so many great restaurants nearby.
The gas grill is a plus, and we had two great meals from it.
The pool and waterfront patio / dock area a super place to hang out day or night. Each day or evening, we were visited by manatees, looking for a drink of fresh water or a nibble of lettuce.
The dock could easily accommodate a 30’+ boat. Bring your own or rent a boat locally.
The owners thoughtfully provided beach chairs and nearly everything needed for a relaxing day at one of the nearby beaches. Sombrero Beach is a short drive away, and is one of the nicest beaches in the Keys.
Sunset Park is a short stroll away, as well as our one our favorite Keys restaurants, the Key Colony Inn.
This gem in Key Colony Beach is ideally situated in the heart of the Florida Keys. Key West is about an hour away, if you are inclined to take a day trip.
We enjoyed our visit so much that we have already booked our next stay!
Fantastic home in Key Colony Beach
Our family (two adults and two children) spent 8 fabulous days in this home for Spring Break. The house is immaculate. Everything is brand new and in working order. The decoration and furniture are well appointed, with a true beach feel. The pool was clean (cleaned once during our stay) and very comfortable.
Annie and Carlos provided all the necessary information before arrival. We didn't need to contact them for anything during out stay but they were very responsive the few time we exchanged emails in preparation for our arrival. Arrival and departure were quick and very simple.
Key Colony is a nice little community in Marathon. We met a few residents in the area (during morning walks or while watching the sunsets at the public park/beach - a must do!) and everyone was nice, welcoming, and proud of their community.
We rented a boat for a few days to snorkel and tour Marathon and had a blast with it. The dock in the house was perfect for it. Next time, we will go fishing (didn't venture to do so this time).
We saw a manatees on the canal almost every day and the kids loved them.
Overall, a magnificent vacation and experience overall. We will be back next year and are already looking forward to it!
Definitely a five star rental
Beautiful setting and the decor was exactly like the pictures. Professionally decorated. Access to great dining, entertainment and beautiful sunsets.
The owners could not have been more welcoming. The house is beautifully decorated and comfortable.
Exceeded all expectations!
Upon arrival of the home we were immediately impressed and so happy we chose this property. The house is so tastefully decorated and well kept. Everything was clean and orderly. High end appliances in the beautiful kitchen, made staying for a week a breeze.The house has its pick of entertainment as well, either the huge flatscreen in the living room, which has a Blu ray player, Direct tv and even a Wii U, or two out the three bedrooms having a tv. Each one of three bedrooms is unique, but all in the style of chic beach. We had four in our group and everyone agreed how comfortable all the beds were. The pool area was wonderful, just the right size.. There is also a nice grill setup, which we took advantage of..I mean who doesn't want to grill and enjoy the beauty of the sunshine in the comfort of your own space.
The area of Key Colony is very welcoming and we felt very safe. The little plaza next door was so convenient and we were over there most mornings at Leigh Ann's for some great coffee. FYI, there is also a great gift store in that plaza that sells some beautiful unique gifts, and take a group of four woman to know best places to shop.
The owners, Carlos and Annie, were so kind and answered all of our questions pre arrival and made sure to keep in contact via email during our stay to ensure we had everything we needed. Personally having this been my first time renting a home, I was so happy it was here and through this nice couple.
We searched for weeks, online trying to find the right home with the amenities we found to be most important and this one won out. There are local activities and beaches, and everything is a quick drive in the car away. The furthest we traveled was to go to Key West, but the drive was beautiful. If you are contemplating whether to stay at this house, don't hesitate, book it. You will absolutely love it!
