About Key Colony Beach Realty

We are still newlyweds! Or at least we like to think so. We live in North Carolina, and we vacation anywhere there is water- but our new favorite LOVE is now our No Bananas Bungalow at Key Colony Beach featuring a quiet and charming tropical lifestyle. It is the perfect setting to do a lot or DO NOTHING which is our favorite thing to do! Most of the time we find ourselves just lounging and staring at the sparkling turquoise water... It makes you lazy and that is ok. Our Key Colony neighbors tell us that condition is known as 'Keys Disease' and we believe them. Whether you like to do a lot or Do Nothing, you have to get down here and experience the low key lifestyle at the No Bananas Bungalow! WHY DID WE NAME IT NO BANANAS BUNGALOW? Check out our website.

All VRBO inquiries are directed to our property manager Key Colony Beach Realty of Key Colony Beach Fl. If you have any issues receiving a response to your inquiry via VRBO, please contact Key Colony Beach Realty directly. Thank you!

Key Colony Beach Realty purchased this bungalow in 2009

Why Key Colony Beach Realty chose Marathon Area

Recently while vacationing in the Florida Keys we embraced the low-key island lifestyle and came across a tiny little key called Key Colony Beach, considered the 'Gem of the Florida Keys' that seem to be caught back in time for all the right reasons! This Key offers the SIMPLE LIFE. We also found a forgotten little bungalow on this off the beaten path key that we just couldn’t get out of our heads.

So we rushed back home to North Carolina and figured out a way to make it our very own AND of course to share. We renovated the bungalow and gave it lots of tender loving care and boat loads of keys personality! The NO BANANAS bungalow is now our favorite DO NOTHING destination!

What makes this bungalow unique

We love the No Bananas Bungalow lifestyle whether we do a lot or DO NOTHING. Since Key Colony is nestled in the middle keys we can easily see all the sights up and down the Florida Keys in just a few hours each way. Whatever we ultimately get into, we always start our day by enjoying a cup of coffee on the patio watching the boats, egrets and pelicans pass by. Our second cup of coffee is enjoyed on a stroll down the street to see the KCB owls on the way to INCH BEACH to pick up shells to add to our collection in the driftwood shell bowl at the bungalow. Recently we started a new tradition by writing the date and a message on a shell to remember our vacation and then we toss it in the bowl. It will be interesting to see if our guests follow in that tradition. We hope so! We actually like to end the day pretty much as we started it, except now with a cool beverage and a stroll to SUNSET PARK for a breathtaking Sunset. For more information on our Keys Life, check out 'The Keys Life' section at our website.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We received this email from our recent NBB Guests. I've been renting property in KCB for 12 years and NBB is our all time favorite! Everything was first class and very much appreciated. Thank you for making our quick trip to the keys so enjoyable! We hope to return many times in the future and NBB will be the first place we try to reserve!

Great bungalow and location

The No Bananas Bungalow was fantastic. Access to the cabana club and inch beach was great. It is centrally located so we could explore all the keys. Will be staying here again.

Go go No Bananas Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

Stay here! The City of Key Colony Beach is the perfect location in the middle of the keys. Away from the crazy of Key Largo and Islamadora. We flew into Fort Lauderdale, rented a car and drove down, making stops at National Parks along the way. We stocked up on groceries for the week at Walmart in Florida City, but replenished our fresh fruits and veggies locally at the Winn Dixie. In a pinch we even found the closest Walgreens also had exactly what we needed. We were able to take easy morning trips either north or south and then enjoy Inch Beach all afternoon. We loved using Inch Beach because it was clean, quiet, and we brought our own cooler of snacks and beverages. While we could've walked the short distance to Inch Beach we found easier to drive with the cooler, beach toys, and teen in tow. NBB is exactly as pictured. Cute, clean, and smells inviting (I know, sounds strange but good smell is important). We found absolutely everything we needed including kabob skewers! Neighborhood is safe and neighbors are very nice. We enjoyed coffee each morning on the patio overlooking the canal. Saw a manatee - so cool! Went for a walk, easily accessible to everything. We were able to make a day trip to the Dry Tortugas, morning trips to: Key West, Bahia Honda State Park, Sombrero Beach, John Pennekamp State Park, and Theater of the Seas. We would stay here again!

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you for your very kind review! We absolutely love how much of the Florida Keys you were able to see during your stay. We are thrilled the location of our little bungalow by the sea was perfect for you to travel up and down the Florida Keys with ease. We are also very glad you enjoyed the amenities of the bungalow and our private Inch Beach Membership included with the bungalow. We love how quiet it is there too! An Inch Slice of Paradise! Thank you so much for choosing No Bananas Bungalow for your vacation so far away from home! We hope to see you back again very soon!

Best place in the Keys!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the No Bananas Bungalow last year during Thanksgiving week. My husband's parents live in Marathon and we visit annually, but this time we wanted our own place for our family to stay. Because we are so familiar with Key Colony Beach, we knew this would be a good location, but when you rent from VRBO, you're hope is that the place actually looks like it does on the website. This place did not disappoint! It is just a cute and stylish at it appears and thoughtfully designed with nice furnishings. The beds are very comfortable with fluffy comforters and pillows. I loved the sea-themed decor from the driftwood mirror to the coral lamps. All the amenities are there from beach towels, to pots, pans and a coffee maker. The TV in both rooms was easy to use. They even have every episode of the original Flipper TV show on DVD and we watched all the episodes at night with the kids and they loved it. We are still signing the theme song. We also rented a kayaks and would kayak over to my in-laws place, which was so fun. After the kids went to bed my husband and I would sit on the lounge chairs on the water and have a glass of wine. The atmosphere was very relaxing and serene. The neighbors were nice as well as the property manager. The beach club was nice as well and the beach is within walking distance. I can't say enough about this property. I would rent it again in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review! Everyone is so busy these days, we don't like to ask for reviews, so it is a real treat to hear from our guests. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience. We loved hearing the happy details of your trip and specifically how you enjoyed our bungalow. With the assistance of our property managers, we do as much as we can to make it feel like a happy home away from home for our guests. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! It especially made us smile to hear your comments on the Flipper dvds. When we purchased and renovated the bungalow, we had so much fun stocking it for our guests with retro books, cds and details in the spirit of the bungalow's mid-century design right down to the classic Flipper episodes. In fact, Flipper's daughter, "Tursi" lives at the Dolphin Research Center on nearby Grassy Key. A fun place to visit! We are also glad you enjoyed the teak loungers - we agree they are the best spot in the evenings. We have fallen asleep many times on those loungers to the sound of palm trees rustling in the breeze and fish snapping in the canal. Again, we are glad you enjoyed your visit with your family and No Bananas Bungalow! We hope you can visit again soon!

We had a great time in the Keys

  • 4 of 5

We would rate No Bananas a 4.5. Our party of 4 really enjoyed ourselves! No Bananas is well located, very well appointed and comfortable. Key Colony Beach is beautiful. The Cabana Beach club has it all - a beautiful beach, pool and dining facilities. It is an easy walk. Inch beach is closer but offers no amenities except for an equally great beach. We took a day trip to Key West and visited Islamorada for dinner. Marathon has it all - Publixs, Winn-Dixie, CVS, Walgreens and a walk in clinic (in the shops along Sadowski Causeway) that we had to use while visiting. My wife and I even went fishing on Marathon Lady (a party boat that goes out twice daily from its dock near the Vaca Cut). We did have a few annoyances including an empty BBQ tank (found out that this is not the owners responsibility to refill if empty), a coffee maker pot that came apart in my hand (luckily it was full with cold water), we couldn't get the TV in the Sun bedroom to change channels (it was beyond our capabilities) and the GFI outlet in the Sun bathroom kept popping for no apparent reason. Like I said we worked around these issues and had a great time. We would definitely stay at No Bananas again.

Owner's Response: We would like to sincerely thank you for choosing No Bananas Bungalow! We are tickled that all of you had a wonderful stay in the beautiful Florida Keys and enjoyed our vacation home. We are especially glad you got to take full advantage of our Cabana Club Membership and our Private Inch Beach Membership. We agree, they are wonderful amenities to the No Bananas Bungalow. We also appreciate you taking the time to offer your feedback, giving us and our property manager an opportunity to address it promptly and immediately replace our Cuisinart Coffee Maker with a brand new one and refill the BBQ tank for the guests enjoying the bungalow this week. We can't thank you enough for your thoughtfulness in helping us keep our bungalow in tippy top shape. We look forward to welcoming you to the No Bananas Bungalow for many years to come!
