About Jim Howe

After 12-years yachting, we 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 vacation 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 Key Colony Beach

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!!!

Beautiful condo, beautiful oceanfront views!

  • 5 of 5

The best location right on the ocean! The pictures don’t do the condo justice. It is beautifully decorated. Plenty of space and bathrooms for my husband, myself, and our three grown daughters! Everything you need for a great vacation.The grounds, pool and private dock are well maintained and immaculate. Watch the sunrise and all the charter boats leave from the wrap around porch every morning The dock is a great place to watch the amazing sunsets every evening and we even saw dolphins, stingrays, horseshoe crabs, and a manatee swim right by us. Great location in the middle of the keys. Lots of great restaurants, snorkeling, paddle boarding, fishing, and sightseeing. We will definitely be back. We love this place!

Beautiful & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The entire property looks wonderful and fully redone after all the damage caused by Hurricane Irma has been completed. The fish dock looks awesome...we used it daily. The condo itself was impeccable with all the amenities you could ask for. We love sitting on the balcony and watching boats go by (never gets boring). Very relaxing!

Our favorite restaurant, Sparky's, has reopened just down the road from its old location. New location is larger and filled up every evening. Still the same great food!

Owner's Response: We’re delighted you came, and that you found our property looking wonderful. After hurricane IRMA ravaged the Keys and our complex, we immediately went to work rebuilding. It was a daunting task because the normal Keys worker shortage was compounded by the storm… many, having lost their home to the storm, had abandoned the Keys. Yes, our complex is back… and better than ever. And so are the Middle Keys. And… we hope you return next year! Jim

Recovered from Hurricane Irma - Better than before!!

  • 5 of 5

We were concerned that Key Colony would still be hurting... but just four months after Hurricane Irma slammed the Florida Keys, Key Colony Point, our favorite vacation rental in the Keys, was nearly totally restored... and better than before. The condo had no interior damage, in fact, living room furniture had been upgraded. The rebuilt fishing pier and swimming pool are spectacular and landscaping beautiful. Soooo thankful for the Key Colony Point staff's hard work to restore our vacation paradise.

Wonderfully Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Things are almost back to normal after hurricane Irma. The fish dock looks great and we had a wonderful time fishing. We caught 3 large red fish....very tasty and a few Mangrove Snapper.

Most of the restaurants in the area are open again and even our favorite restaurant, Sparky's is about to open again in the old Tarpon Creek Restaurant location!!! The condo was immaculately clean and had ALL amenities you can think of! The view from the huge wrap-around balcony is stunning!

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.

Car: not necessary

The area teems with activities for all ages. There are walking and biking paths, the world famous 7-Mile Bridge, Cinema, Museum, Dolphin Centers, Keys Aquarium Encounters, and Turtle Hospital. You can swim and snorkel in crystal blue waters off our private beach or you can explore incredible Sombrero Reef. For those who like to “wet a hook” we have reef or bay fishing for snapper and grouper, or offshore sport fishing galore.

Key West is but an hour away with more beaches, fishing, para sailing, cruises, Duval Street shopping, Hemingway House, President Truman’s “Little White House”, Southern most point of the U.S.A., and interesting tours of this beautiful old city. At the end of the day, stroll historic Mallory Square, the heart of Key West’s waterfront. Toast a fantastic sunset and enjoy the sights and sounds of street vendors, Cuban cigar makers, and circus performers of this daily ritual.
