About Will Rosbolt

I have been coming to Key Colony Beach all my life. My family spent every summer here while we were growing up. My brother and I had incredible freedom to fish, go diving and tooling around in our Boston Whaler.

Will Rosbolt purchased this bungalow in 2011

Why Will Rosbolt chose Key Colony Beach

My grandparents bought the raw land that our other VRBO units (#9 & #10 7th street) are built on. We think 7th Street is the best place to be in the Middle Keys.

What makes this bungalow unique

7th Street units have great access to the Gulf & the Atlantic; a wide & deep canal, no docks on the opposite side of the canal and is the only street that has the boardwalk, on which you can walk the length of the street on the waterside. This gives it a neighborhood feel and encourages socializing with your neighbors.

Best Location in Key Colony

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Will for another great vacation at your property. Liked it so much we stayed 2 weeks this time. This is a great location. It was so nice for you to stop by and welcome us. Meet Elizabeth upon arrival. She was super nice. The Cabana Club and Inch Beach are wonderful. What else can we say, we love it, we love it, we love it! We will be back again next year. Thanks again for a wonderful vacation.

Beds are ok, sheets ok, towels very nice, sofas are worn out, very hot in Master and bath and if you use washer and dryer it is worse. The ceiling fan over Master squeaks, so you can not run at night. Kitchen is adequate except glass table is dirty under the glass. Pets are allowed, but not Pet Friendly. They had an ant problem so chose to put out TERRO ant bait on floors, behind commodes, sink pedestals and on counter tops too. I guess they were trying to save money instead of call Professionals to address the problem safely to humans and pets. Our Pet ate one behind sink pedestal before we could remove it. We spent our vacation at Vet ER and the rest of our time in the Duplex taking turns feeding and trying to get fluids down her. Will, could have cared less, Elizabeth said we didn't control our Pet. Now mind you, we paid Pet Fees for a safe rental. You will spend your time taking garbage out almost everyday (Rules, one garbage bag was all they left us) emptying ice maker, stripping beds and starting washer BEFORE you leave, washing dishes and putting up all dishes. Yes we paid for cleaning but I feel like we worked all AM, just to get out of there. I have NEVER had to do all those chores when I go on vacation. And who knows what all has to be done if you fish with live bait. Elizabeth started in on those chores but I stopped her and told her we were not fishing. One of the patio sliding doors does not lock at all. So you are not really safe. Will, NEVER offered to pay us for any rental reimbursement or Vet bills. He only called her old and in poor health due to her age and his googling about our breed. Which was not true or we would have never traveled all over FL with her before coming to the KEYS. But finally he saw the light that we weren't going away, he paid Vet bills, almost $800. She was bleeding through her stool, dehydrated, not eating, shaking, crying with a lot of pain. I really thought she was going to die. I don't even feel this is a safe place to vacation as the granite tops had Ant Bait all over them and a bead of Bait all on the black plash that we had to clean up before we could prepare meals. And yes, Elizabeth admitted to putting it out there as we arrived. They are cutting corners to save monies on Pest Control. Please don't let this happen to you or your Pet at this rental. I had to write the truth about this rental to protect Humans and Pets that might be looking to rent at what they think is "Paradise".

Wonderful winter vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great week Key Colony Beach in early December. The property was cozy, clean and very well furnished. Property manager Elizabeth was wonderful, answering all of our questions and offering suggestion 4 entertainment dining etc. The location of this property was perfect. We enjoyed many happy hours in the sun at Cabana Club. Our favorite dining was Key Colony Inn which was just around the corner. We took a drive to Bahia Honda State Park one day and basked in the natural beauty of the tropical beach there. Went out fishing on Marathon Lady one afternoon. Spent the rest of the time just relaxing and enjoying the friendly community.

Nice, super clean in KCB

  • 5 of 5

Great VBRO. Basically a half of a duplex. CLEAN! and not like some of the other places we have all stayed, Really Clean. Furnished well and managed well. Public boat launch less than a mile away. Room for medium sized boat trailer Close to Captain Hooks and the Vaca. Has nice boat dock for boats under 30 ft. We have stayed in KCB many times in the past, although it had been a few years, will definitely stay here again if available. 7th street canal is the widest in KCB. Close good diving spots including Sombrero Reef. Book without hesitation.

Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this property with our 2 children. House is very clean and well equipped with everything you need. Plenty of room for all of us. Nice boat dock in the back if you are traveling with a boat. And the kids had a blast fishing right on the property as well. The location is great, Key Colony is a wonderful neighborhood. Cabana Club is beautiful with an awesome infinity pool right on the ocean. Restaurants are right within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again!
