About Jim Howe

After 12-years yachting, we returned to and made Key Colony Beach our winter home away from home in Texas. When we are away, our condo, furnished and equipped as a personal home, is available to family, friends, and rentals who benefit from our corner-sited condo with spectacular wrap around beachfront and ocean views.

Jim Howe purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jim Howe chose Marathon Area

With turquoise seas lapping at our private beach just below the balcony, the view is indescribably delicious! Warning… napping on our brand new balcony chaise lounges is habit forming! Come stay in our island paradise and escape from your everyday demands, hustle, and bustle.

In addition to on-premise tennis court, heated swimming pool, hot tub, and fishing pier, plus Key Colony’s Sunset Park on the water is located just next door. With several restaurants within walking distance, the Key Colony Beach community is very user-friendly for walking, jogging, and biking.

What makes this condo unique

Snorkel off our beach; build sand castles, swim, hot tub, play tennis, or fish from our private pier… all on premise and just steps away! Overlooking the ocean, the beautiful heated swimming pool is surrounded by manicured gardens. Your stay will be like a dream come true as you drift off to the sound of the ocean and awake to beautiful sunrises and the calls of seagulls.

Located midway between Key Largo and Key West, this idyllic island has 3 recreational parks, a 9-hole golf course, bike and jog paths, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, water jets, para sailing, a full service marina, a fleet of charter boats, and home of the best fishing in the Keys!! You will want to watch for the ‘green flash’ in our incredible sunsets and enjoy Sunday afternoon concerts from “Sunset Park” next door.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Upon arriving at your condo, it was a WOW!! The manager, was most helpful, explaining all the outside amenities. The pool, parking, tennis courts, etc. Having the luggage cart is a plus, one trip in was great. The best way to describe your beautiful condo... it is breath taking, luxurious, elegant, and exuberant. Comfortable, everything you need and want. All in its place. Beautifully furnished and decorated. It is convenient to all of Marathon, with so many nice places to eat. We have so enjoyed our stay here. Hope we can come back... never would we find a place as nice and comfortable with such a panoramic magnificent view... Pure delight!!!

Best View on the East Coast!

  • 5 of 5

My family vacationed here for a week, and had an outstanding trip. The Condo truly has the best view in the keys! The porch wraps around the entire unit allowing you to take in the sites and the incredible sea breeze. The condo is very comfortably furnished beds, furniture, outdoor furniture, etc... and although we didn't use them the kitchen has all the utensils and cooking supplies you would ever need. There is a quaint little private beach right in front of the condo which we had to ourselves the entire week. The owner was very accommodating and quick to respond. This rental hits the mark in every category!

Owner's Response: Thank you Jenn... we're proud of the remodeling... and of course, the incredible ocean view. Hurricane Irma dealt a terrible blow to the Florida Keys and to our beautiful Key Colony Point complex... the good news... all of our condo interiors weathered the storm just fine. We're planning to reopen by December 1.

Fabulous Oceanfront Property!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo in Key Colony Beach! Our family of six included three generations and all were thrilled with the amenities of this beautiful condo. The wraparound balcony was superbly furnished with various comfortable furniture groupings and we could enjoy sun, shade, the ocean breeze and the ocean view. During our cold winter months, memories of this oceanfront experience will help get us through the winter. We only wish we had planned a longer stay-- that was unanimous!

It should also be mentioned that the housekeeping was excellent, the unit being immaculately clean.

Everything about this place is top notch. The particular location of unit 17 has to to be the best of the entire community. Luxurious but homey. Very well equipped ...really nice deck furniture. This was our second year here and will go again next year.
