Overview

About the property

Come down to our little piece of paradise! Our condo is located in beautiful Key Colony Beach, Florida. Sea Isle Condominiums has tropical gardens and manicured lawns. Swim at our private sandy beach, the heated swimming pool or just lounge under a palm tree. Stroll on the beach and collect beautiful sea shells or snorkel in the crystal clear blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. We also have shuffle board and horseshoes. Charter fishing and party boats, like the Marathon Lady, can take you off-shore or reef fishing to catch all kinds of tropical fish. Come back to the condo to the tiki hut and gas grills to BBQ your catch of the day overlooking the beautiful pristine water and white sand beach or relax and take your catch to a local restaurant and let them do the cooking.

Our newly updated condo includes two bedrooms and two baths. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Tile floors are found in all the rooms. Both bedrooms have king sized beds and there is a balcony with ocean views off the master bedroom to enjoy your morning coffee or use the WiFi to read your e-mails. The living room is a great place to relax after a long lazy day at the beach or touring the keys.

Come enjoy all that the Middle Keys has to offer! The Dolphin Research Center, The Turtle Hospital, Seven Mile Bridge, and Pigeon Key are all just minutes away. Plan a day trip to Key West, Bahia Honda State Park or John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, everything in the Keys is just a short 45 minute drive away!

Laundry facilities are available. Sorry no pets, trailers, or boats.

No smoking please!

Why Patti & Tom O'Donnell chose Marathon Area

We first traveled to Key Colony Beach five years ago for my son's spring break. We arrived at night and the first person we met at the condo said, 'Welcome to paradise!' Boy was he right. It was so beautiful and we fell in love with Key Colony Beach and the Florida Keys right away! We knew we wanted a piece of paradise!

What makes this condo unique

When we saw the condo we knew right away that this was the place for us! The condo is beautiful, new kitchen, tile foors and a view from the patio. We love the beach, the water, the palm trees and the beautiful landscaping!

Beautiful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here in August for an end of summer family vacation and had a wonderful time. The condo was perfect, beautifully decorated and clean. Marathon is such a great location, we were within 90 minutes of Key West and less than an hour to Islamorada. We were lucky enough to be able to watch the Turtle Hospital release a rehabilitated loggerhead turtle from Sombreo Beach. This was the first time that my daughters had been to the Keys and they loved it. We will definately return.

Just average

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed at several properties managed by VRBO and this one was lowest rated of them all. The unit needs some handyman work. The door knob to the bedroom was falling off, and the master bedroom shower door would not stay closed. But the thing that bothered us the most was the floor, it was filthy. We noticed very quickly that when walking around barefoot the bottoms of our feet were almost black. The floor needs to be cleaned. There were mouse droppings and huge cockroaches present. Other than that it was as advertised.

Owner's Response: We are sorry about your recent stay. We wish you had contacted the property manager or us right away so we could have addressed the issues immediately. We are going to have the floors professionally cleaned and address all your other concerns. Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention and we hope you enjoyed your stay in the beautiful Florida Keys! Patti & Tom

Fantastic stay in Marathon

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo, very big (my son couldn't believe he had a king size bed AND a bathroom to himself as we used the en-suite :) very well equipped - there is a laundry room downstairs for washing clothes if you're staying for a while.

Ideally located in the mid-Keys and in a really beautiful and quiet area of Marathon. I got up to watch the sunrise every morning from the beach and we watched most sunsets from the 5mn walk away Sunset Park and met with the same people every night (seems to be the thing to do at sunset time!) for a magical display of colours in the sky.

Plenty of wild life around with iguanas on the beach too - quite funny creatures to watch...

The pool is really big and was not busy at all when we were there - 5 people at the most at one time...

Supermarkets are about a 10mn drive but there is a gas station nearby if you've run out of essentials.

There is a breakfast/lunch coffee house nearby (Leigh Ann Coffee House - highly recommended, very nice) and a restaurant (Sparky's Landing) which offers decent meals.

All in all, a great stay - lots to do in Marathon without driving too long: we swam with dolphins at the DRC, went to the Turtles Hospital, snorkelled on boat tours and drove to Key West for an afternoon (about 1hr drive). We even rented a boat in Key Largo (about 1hr as well) with some local friends to try and fish lobsters.

Patti was very nice on first contact and then a property management took over, very professional and helpful when we arrived early and could check-in early.

Would go back any time!

Wonderful stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

I just came home from a wonderful vacation in Florida Key's and my stay at this condo was perfect!

Everything is as pictured. Patti and the condo manager were very responsive and quick with answering any questions.

My husband and I, as well as two of our sons were very comfortable in this apartment. It's on the 2nd. floor, but that wasn't any problem at all. Lots of room inside for all of us. Kitchen was fully equipped and we did cook some breakfasts and dinners there. There is no washer/dryer inside, but there are two in the little gazebo right by the swimming pool and on the way to the condo's beach, which was very convienient!!! I did laundry twice while I was just hanging out on the beach. Beach is very private and very appropriate for small children. Clean and shallow, with lots of sea shells to pick!

Steps away from the condo is Sunset Park. What a lovely park!!! I went there on few mornings with a cup of coffee in my hand just to enjoy it before anybody would get there! We also witnessed several spectacular sunsets from there!!!

As for attractions, we visited Dolphin Reaserch Center,just a five min. drive away. Spent a day at Bahia Honda Beach - maybe a 15 min. drive. Went to Key West three times, which is an hour drive. Also took a ferry to the spectacular Dry Tortugas. My family really enjoyed a walk on the Seven Mile Bridge one evening and we witnessed one of the most amazing sunsets!

There are many good restaurants all around.Too many to list! Food was very good wherever we went! Having a dinner in one of the restaurants on the shore and to have the manatee swimming right near us was especially enjoyable!

I would definitely recommend this condo. Very convenient to everything, guiet and in a lovely and safe neighborhood.

I just wish it was pet friendly, as I had to leave my little dog behind for almost two weeks :-(

Thank you Patti for letting us enjoy a little bit of the paradise!!!

What a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! The condo was perfect for our family with 2 teenage girls. We loved the pool and the beach. Walking to Sparky's Landing for dinner or to Sunset Park with a glass of wine to watch the sunset were great. It's close to the store, Sombrero Beach and Keys Fisheries, but you feel like you are away from it all. Made our usual day trip to Key West and plenty of time to kayak and play. We'll definitely keep this on our list to come back.
