The Vaca Cut is approximately 1 mile by boat. On the street side, the unit is directly across the street from the KCB 9-hole golf course, tennis courts, basketball court, paddleball court horseshoe area and bocce ball area, and children’s playground.

The duplex is within walking distance to 3 restaurants, a coffee house, Sunset Park, Inch Beach and the Cabana Club. Also within walking distance are: kayak rentals, a dive and snorkel shop, boat rentals, and world-class charter services.

There is a new 32” HDTV, a 26' HDTV, 2 DVD players, a radio/cd/ipod player and wireless internet in the unit.

Outside the duplex is landscaped and offers 2 parking spots per side, which includes parking for up to a 28’ boat trailer straight in or up to a 32’ trailer parked at an angle. There is also overflow parking across the street. (see photo). On the waterside there is seating right outside the unit and on the seawall there is a small dining table. Both are perfect spots to enjoy coffee while watching the sunrise or an evening cocktail. There is a gas barbecue, a bait freezer, and a fish-cleaning table. The finger dock offers water and power and accommodates boats up to 38’ LOA or with a beam no wider than 14’.

Our duplex is one of the few in KCB with underwater lights, which let you enjoy the show that the tarpon, jacks, grunts, look downs, dolphin, spotted eagle ray, seahorses, crabs, and more put on every night!

Key Colony Beach, known as the 'Gem of the Florida Keys,' is located between Key Largo and Key West, just off Marathon (Heart of the Florida Keys). The area is renowned for its superb fishing and diving.

About Will Rosbolt

My grandparents bought the raw land for these units in the early 1960's and built our duplex in 1965. My siblings and I spent every summer and vacation here while we were growing up.

Will Rosbolt purchased this bungalow in 1965

Why Will Rosbolt chose Marathon Area

My grandfather thought this was the best street in KCB due to the access to and protection of and from the Atlantic.

What makes this bungalow unique

With the high speed wifi were are completely connected but I can also walk over to the Cabana Club and instantly be in the KCB of my youth.

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here and already planning another trip back. The unit is so cute and spacious even with 3 teenage boys we still had plenty of room. Their units are always very clean and well stocked with all the essentials. You can't beat the location or all the amenities KCB has to offer. There are restaurants within walking distance, beautiful sunsets, awesome fishing, biking, kyacking, snorkeling and an all around great place to relax. Renting from Will and Elizabeth is always a pleasure and highly recommend any of their properties.

Perfect vacation home on the water and near everything you need

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for a week and it was great. 4 restaurants within 3 blocks. Bring a boat or rent and keep it behind the home. Fish from the dock. Private beach and Sunset beach within 4 blocks. Snorkel and dive boats nearby. Great service for any needs or questions provided by Elizabeth. Can't wait to come back!

Fabulous stay!

  • 5 of 5

It was our families first time visiting the Keys and the Marathon area could not have been a better choice. The property was exactly as described and pictured and the location was perfect for our family. We enjoyed the Cabana Club staff and amenities and Key Colony Beach in general is a great family friendly community. Loved fishing from the wharf and the underwater lights at night. Saw a spotted ray, a giant grouper, barracudas, and even a shark swim by! Sparkeys at happy hour is a definite must! Will definitely be repeat visitors to this property.

Excellent week

  • 5 of 5

What a great week. Relaxing to say the least. The unit was extra nice inside and out. Having the dock right at the unit was fantastic, I fished every night. The underwater lights made it that much better. Every night a hugh Goliath grouper showed up, several hundred pound fish. Dolphins and manatees every day right off the dock. The private beach, Inch beach, was perfect as it had shade, very peaceful. We biked all over the island and even down to the big bridge. I look forward to returning to this unit.

KCB Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding property--Rosbolt Rentals provides anything/everything a vacationer would need. We had beach chairs and beach towels; luxurious towels and linens in each bedroom; anything the "chef" could wish for in the kitchen, e. g. blender, microwave, mixing bowls, French fry machine, etc., place settings for a host of people, glasses for outside and inside; a beautiful view from our patio, with a dock and canal access; proximity (within walking distance) to three great restaurants, beaches, shops, the Cabana Club, parks. What more could a person on vacation ask for? The property was spotless. The property managers were always available, with helpful answers to questions about the area. Our second year renting from Rosbolt Rentals was even better than the first.

Family of Four with Furry Kids

  • 5 of 5

Property was very clean, pictures adequately shows properties highlights! We are a family of four with two teenage girls, which we were all comfortable with the space. Our dogs were welcome to come and that's very important to us when traveling. We loved the dock space and the ability to bring our boat. The teenage girls loved the Cabana Club and pool area included. We will be definitely renting from this owner again as he is a dream to work with!
