House was perfect for our family of 7.

  • 5 of 5

Kitchen was probably the best stocked of all the VRBO homes we have stayed in - it had everything we needed. House was big enough that we could have separate down time or all be together. Canal was beautiful and ocean access was only minutes away. We had a wonderful time!

A great week in the Florida Keys

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Key Colony for our week in the Keys. It was a great place to stay. Close to all the restaurants and exterior activities.

The house was big enough for all 7 of us, lots of space. Really loved the the outside deck, gorgeous spot for our morning coffee. We recommend it to everyone.

Hope to return to your beautiful spot in the near future...

A great house in a great location! Spent a week there on our outdoor adventure honeymoon. It was nice to rent a nearby boat and dock it right at the house. Yes ... i was lucky enough to find that rare girl who baits her own hook and rocks a cocktail dress. Lots of activities a short drive away and a few in walking distance. Two state parks within 20 minutes drive that provide days of fun. But if you fish or boat... wel that explains my review title.

A beautiful home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Marathon 3 times and this was our second time staying in Key Colony. There were only 3 of us staying in the home but there was room for plenty more. We enjoyed being able to wake up and have our coffee and breakfast while looking out over our rental boat docked outside. It was September and it was still warm, but the back of the home faces east so we had plenty of shade in the afternoon. I think the only time we were inside was to sleep, cook, or eat dinner. The rest of the time was spent out on the patio and we loved every moment of it. Oh, and everything you need is close by. Two canals over is bait, fuel and dive supplies so it was super easy and fast to get ready for a day of fishing. Bonnie was amazing to work with and I look forward to working with her next year when we book this home again. Thanks Bonnie!!

Everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd trip to Marathon and we had a great time. The house had everything we needed. We were two couples and two 18 year olds. The teenagers had the upstairs to themselves. They fished every day. Were visited by an Egret and one day 5 Manatees. That made our day!! Took trips to Bahia Honda and other beaches to snorkel. Ate at all our favorite restaurants. Loved the Cabana Club pool and being able to order great pizza right there. Sparky's is one of our favorite restaurants. Did our shopping at Winn-Dixie and KMart. Your kitchen was well stocked with dishes and utensils we needed. Even had the coffee filters we forgot to buy. And so much counter space. We hope to be back next year but depends on how many will be with us. Want to thank Bonnie again for her help!!
