This spacious duplex is located in a tropical paradise. The property is on 11th Street, facing east, on the island city of Key Colony Beach at MM 54 in the Middle Keys (near Marathon).

This is a canal-front unit with a 37-foot dock, fish cleaning table with light, and easy access to both the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. The home features a large, 29-foot screened porch fronting the canal (great place to dine), two bedrooms, two baths, great room, carport and laundry room.

The master bedroom has a queen and a single bed, and the guest bedroom has two double beds. Each bedroom has it's own full bathroom. The unit has been remodeled with a new kitchen, new baths, comfortable furnishings/beds, central air and heat, tile in the kitchen and baths, and carpet elsewhere.

Membership to a private beach on the Atlantic with fresh water shower and picnic area is included. The beach is a five-minute walk from the unit, as is SUNSET PARK. Beach chairs and beach towels are provided.

BICYCLES, free long distance, WiFi Fiber Optic Internet and flat-screen tv in the living room are included.

Key Colony Beach is an island city that offers a quiet, tropical setting with excellent restaurants, boat rentals, charter boats, par three golf, tennis, basketball court, children's park, and resort-type shopping all within walking distance. In combination with our remodeled unit, this a winning vacation location.

                                                                I would return to Frans Place in the future.The owner was a great host.Thank you for making our stay in your home most comfortable.The boat dock and the ability to store our boat trailer was important.We socialized outside while cooking on the grills,very nice area.We enjoyed the view from the living room overlooking canal.The private beach was good.The neighborhood accommodates vacationers.I don't have any negative comments.Thanks again Fran.

                                                                Relaxing and wonderful!

The canal outside the house was a perfect place for fishing and viewing all kinds of fish. We saw snapper, nurse shark, butterflyfish, parrotfish, and many more species. The iguana on inch beach and in the yard were a surprise. The house was spotless and very comfortable. Everything was there we could possibly need, and more! Thank you, Fran for an unforgettable vacation. We hope to visit again one day.

                                                                Perfect place for my two children, friend and me for our Spring Break vacation! The house was perfect, charming and in a great location for our activities. We LOVED Inch Beach; sunset ceremony at Sunset Park and Sweet Savanah's for ice cream in Marathon. Publix was a great supermarket, and very close. Sombrero Beach was great. And it was close enough to Key West that getting to the boat to Fort Jefferson by 7 am wasn't the worst thing in the world. Just a great place and we felt right at home! Thank you Fran and family!

                                                                Perfect as usual

                                                                Our party of 3 had the pleasure of using Frans Place again for our autumn get away. We have used this rental for 7 years now and its just perfect, in both location and price. It is always immaculate and ready to go, with excellent contact with Fran to make things run smoothly. Give this place a try if looking for a great get away, you wont regret it.

                                                                Fran's place is amazing!

                                                                We have been staying in the Key colony area for over 5 years, however we decided to stay at a new place and WOW and is all we can say about this place. We thought we were staying in a nice place before, however Fran's Place is top notch!! The dock is perfect for our 23 foot boat, the parking of the trailer and the truck was challenge, however it was great! Fran is quick to respond and is so pleasant to deal with. We fished everyday, which that is our main goal for visiting the area. Sparky's is the best deal in town hands down, happy hour every day 4-6. We will be staying again, soon.

                                                                Thanks Fran for allowing us to enjoy your home. You have an amazing place, just like home.
