About Cheryl Foster

Grandparents of 5 which love the outdoors, fishing, boating, swimming, building sandcastles and observing nature and it's wonders. We were looking for a special vacation home located atleast 2 hours or more away from Miami where we live. We fell in love with the City of Key Colony Beach and all it has to offer.

Cheryl Foster purchased this house in 2011

Why Cheryl Foster chose Marathon Area

City of Key Colony Beach is truly an island which offers 3 restaurants, tiny shops, children's playground, 9 hole golf course and both private and public access to beach and ocean. Area is safe and secure.

What makes this house unique

Since the City of Key Colony Beach is centrally located in the Florida Keys between Key Largo and Key West, there is always some type of festivals and or art shows to visit. The City of Key Colony Beach at times will hold a concert in the park at the Sunset Park hosting local singers/bands.

Rented this home from the Fosters based on the pictures and reviews posted on the VRBO site. Our experience there was better than we could have expected. We found the home to be just as pictured, clean, and neat. Everything you could need was there for your use. Information and access keys were readily available and instructions for use were provided. Freddie was there when we arrived and offered all kinds of advice and assistance to us regarding the home, the beaches, fishing advice, restaurants and the like. He even offered me bait he had in the freezer!

If you can't relax and feel at ease in this home you have a problem. You could spend your time just in the back yard, catching fish off the dock, giving water to the manatees, feeding fish to the egrets, watching the iguanas and soaking up the sun. Inch beach is quiet and secluded and a wonderful place for the family, just a two minute walk across the street. Bike riding or walking around the island is safe with plenty of beautiful homes to see. the "open market" at the park was really nice with good food for sale and beautiful crafts.

As an aside, the Fosters neighbors were very friendly and easy to talk to, readily offering advice on places to dine, and things to do.

I would rate this home, the Fosters, and KCB a six star experience. It is not a question of if we would

rent this property again, but rather when we can make the time to get back here and hopefully find the home available.

Thank you Freddie and Cheryl for your home and the wonderful experience you were instrumental in our having!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Three couples rented this property the last week of January 2016. The weather wasn't that great but our accommodations were wonderful. We had plenty of room and the kitchen was well supplied. The back area was beautiful to fish, read or sit and talk. Cheryl was great to work with. She was willing to do whatever so we could have a perfect vacation. If you are flying to the Keys this would be a perfect place to stay. Everything is there including beach chairs. Very easy walk to Sunset Beach and Inch Beach. The Cabana Pool pass is definitely a plus. Believe me you won't be sorry if you rent this property. P.S. There is a new bed in front bedroom.

This slice of paradise that Cheryl and Freddie shared with us was exactly that! When we arrived this beautiful home was so much more than we expected! First, the booking experience and communication between us and the Fosters was quick and friendly! They answered every question we had the same day we asked. When we arrived for our vacation this home was extremely clean and welcoming! We rented a boat and kept it right out the back door for easy use as well. The patio was clean and the decor was very relaxing! The fish in the water was so much fun to watch as well as the beautiful iguanas that visit during the day! We had 6 of us staying there and there was more than enough room for all of us! Our kids absolutely loved the home as well! The only thing negative was having to leave this beautiful home that was shared with us! When we are able to plan another trip to key colony this is the first and hopefully the only house we will see is available! The community was very friendly and welcoming as well. Everyone we ran into knew the Fosters and told us how wonderful they are! We can see this in how well kept and inviting their home is! If it is available we highly recommend you stay here!!!! Not only will you have a beautiful home to stay in you will also have amazing people there for you if you need anything!

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation!. Slice of Paradise is beautiful inside and out. It's in a great location and our girls loved fishing, kayaking, and paddleboarding on the canal. We rode bikes or walked everywhere we wanted to go. Inch Beach and the Cabana Club were great amenities too!. We will definitely stay here again!!

Truly a Slice of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Slice of Paradise! The home was very clean, welcoming & the pictures show a true representation. The king sized bed was very comfortable at the end of a busy day! We loved the location for our week long exploration of The Keys. Only 1 hour to Key West & the action of Duval St., 35-40 minutes to Islamorada and incredible fishing & minutes to the Dolphin Research Center & other great activities right in Marathon. We spent our mornings & evenings under the Tiki Hut enjoying the channel. We saw a manatee our first morning, a shark one evening & caught a few fish off the dock with the fishing rods left for our use. There was a kayak for our use as well but after seeing the shark we decided not to partake in that activity! Cheryl was extremely easy to deal with, super friendly & very prompt in replying to any inquiries we had for her. The only negative thing we experienced was having to pack up & go home. It is truly a great place for families or just a couple like us getting away from it all. We would definitely stay again!

Wonderful Home in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

Four of us had a wonderful week at Cheryl and Freddie's lovely home. When we first arrived, we were pleasantly surprised at the size of the unit, as it's much larger than it looks in the photos. There would be plenty of room for six adults, or a large family. The home is very clean, with a well equipped kitchen and laundry facilities. The beds were super comfy, with nice linens. The dock area is lovely, with a large tiki hut that houses a dining table and chairs. Coming from the cold of Canada, we ate almost every meal out there, enjoying the warm temperatures. There are a couple of lounge chairs there as well, for stretching out and relaxing. There is a nice Weber bbq if you want to do some grilling. We didn't rent a boat, but if you do, there are docking privileges. We went out on the Marathon Lady for a half day of fishing, which is highly recommended. The crew was great and we caught lots of fish, which we cleaned at the fish cleaning station back at the unit. There is everything there you need.

The neighbourhood is very quiet. It's a very short walk from the unit over to Inch Beach, which is a lovely little private beach. Sunset Park is just around the corner. Locals and visitors gather there each night and pay tribute to "another day in paradise" with a song. The Cabana club is a little farther to walk, but there is a parking lot should you prefer to drive over for a swim in the pool or the ocean, with food and bar service available. We walked over a couple of times. We also golfed one day on the little Par 3 golf course a few blocks away.

The town of Marathon is close by, with lots of shops and restaurants. There are also a few restaurants in Key Colony that you can easily walk to. Sparky's Landing is very popular, and we dropped in for Happy Hour for some wings and peel and eat shrimp. It was quite lively and busy. Our last night, we dined at Key Colony Inn, and we wished we had gone there sooner. The food was very good, with large servings and reasonable prices. They have entertainment there as well.

Cheryl and Freddie are wonderful hosts, quick to respond to emails and very accommodating. We hope to get back for a return visit some day!
