Winter escape

  • 5 of 5

Great location within walking or biking distance of three restaurants, Inch beach, and sunset park. We especially appreciated the membership to the private inch beach. The house was extremely well equipped with anything and everything we needed. The king master bed was one of the most comfortable we have every slept on. We loved the outdoor area and enjoyed fishing off the dock as well as watching the birds and iguanas. This is one of the best properties we have ever rented in a wonderfully quiet and peaceful location.

Exelent property

  • 5 of 5

This was second time we rented this lovely property. The house is perfect, both furnishings and equipment in the kitchen. We really enjoy our stay in the house.

It is so nice having breakfast or just snacks and beers on the small bridge at the property. The children (16 and 9 years old) loved fishing from the small bridge. Lot of fish and they even saw a bullshark. Lot of birds as pelicans and eagles.

We also spent some days at Cabana Club, in the pool and at the beach. Lovely place where owner got membership. The location is very charming and some small restaurants, walk distance. At Sparklys we had company with manatees. One day we also had a kayaking tour recommendation from the owner. We have great contact with owners and got a lot of recommendations. I hope we will get back also a third time!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this rental was fantastic. It was just the two of us, and we were so comfortable just like home. The house could have easily accommodated a few more adults and children without feeling cramped. We loved the fact that it was all one level without going up and down stairs all the time, which is hard to find in The Keys. The patio which led out to the boat dock and canal was awesome. Every day we saw stingrays, sharks and numerous fish. There even was a barracuda that lived under the boat lift that came over to greet us every day. This house wasn't just a rental - it was actually something you could live in every day permanently. We will definitely be back.

Enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

We found the accommodations super nice - far beyond our expectations. The amenities were far superior to most vacation rentals. Also, the rental rate was less than most units of same size and location. The easy access to the Atlantic was a great plus. The visit by baby and momma manatee made our visit complete.

Will definitely return.

Home away from home in Key Colony Beach

  • 5 of 5

This spotless, spacious, 3 bedroom 2 bath house on 9th street is the best. The master bedroom has a comfortable king bed with great sheets. The room is large and has a office which we have put a crib in one year. There is a day bed too. There is a room with a queen and one with a double bunk and a twin on top. The floors are spotless easy to keep clean tile. New washer and dryer and refridge! The boat lift makes taking care of the boat a breeze. This yard has lush greenery and is not hot like most of the other yards on the canal. You only need to bring yourself.

Fabulous home in Marathon/Key Colony

  • 5 of 5

My family of seven enjoyed our time in Key Colony. There were four adults and three children. Elizabeth greeted us and could not have been more helpful and accommodating! The house was clean and the property is well-maintained. We really enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and visiting the local park. It was great to have access to the Beach Club. The young boys enjoyed snorkeling in the water and swimming in the pool while the adults enjoyed a drink on the beach! The location was great - short drive to Sombrero Beach, Bahia Honda State Park, and Key West. The grocery store was a couple miles away and made shopping for meals easy. We walked to Sparky's for dinner and enjoyed the great waitstaff and yummy fish tacos! We did rent a boat for the day (didn't bring it to the property) and headed out to Sombrero Reef. The snorkeling was great! I would highly recommend this house and location to others. Will and Elizabeth were both so kind and helpful! Thanks for sharing this great home with us!

About Will Rosbolt

I have been coming to Key Colony Beach all my life. My family spent every summer here while we were growing up. My brother and I had incredible freedom to fish, go diving and tooling around in our Boston Whaler.

Will Rosbolt purchased this house in 2013

Why Will Rosbolt chose Key Colony Beach

Key Colony Beach is the best location in the Keys. Great as a base if you are going to the upper or lower Keys for a day trip. Great access to the Gulf and the Atlantic. It is only a quick trip to deep water, as well as many sandbars if you are just looking to hang out. KCB is pedestrian friendly, biker friendly, family friendly and safe. People say the city has a resort feel to it.

What makes this house unique

We wanted to add a 3 bedroom property to the Rosbolt Rentals portfolio and after shopping for a couple of years I walked into this one and knew immediately it was the right one. Besides the light and spacious living room/dining area, the outside patio with the party deck and lots of foliage to provide shade and privacy made me feel comfortable and relaxed. The bedrooms are good sized and separate from one another. Families are not right on top of each other. Since it is east facing you can sit out back all day long, even in the afternoon.
