Need a Boat? Exclusively for our Guests! The resident owner makes available for rent a 23ft, Contender center console that will be delivered to your dock--6 day minimum subject to boat operation experience. Rental price is well below ½ market rate!!!

This spacious duplex is located in a tropical paradise. The property is on 9th Street, front facing east, on the island city of Key Colony Beach at MM 54.5 in the Middle Keys (within Marathon).
This is a canal-front unit with a 37.5’ dock that will comfortably handle up to a 30 ft. boat, fish cleaning table, water and 20amp electric service at the dock and easy access to both the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. The home features a large, 8x10 Tiki Hut with new gas grill fronting the canal (great place to cook, dine & relax), two bedrooms, two baths, great room with Queen size sleep sofa, and laundry room. There is sufficient parking on site for a boat trailer, RV and 3 vehicles.

The master bedroom has a king and twin bed, and the guest bedroom has a queen and twin bed. Each bedroom has its own full bathroom. The unit has been completely remodeled with a new kitchen, new baths, comfortable furnishings/beds, individual A/C units (all 3 units new since June, 2014) in each bedroom and living room. New floor tile throughout the house. WI-Fi internet, cable and a 47” flat-screen, smart TV in the living room included. Washer and dryer as well as ironing board and iron are included with rental.

Key Colony Beach is an island city that offers a quiet, safe environment--our own police department, tropical setting with excellent restaurants, boat rentals, charter boats, par three golf course (rental clubs available), tennis, basketball court, children's park, several dog parks and resort-type shopping all within walking distance. Marathon is known throughout the globe for its gulf and deep sea fishing, lobster, snorkeling and dive locations.
If you intend to fish here we strongly recommend you put the FREE app “FISH RULES” on your phone.
It shows pictures of fish that are legal at what size for this area. It replaces pages of regulations.
Plus anywhere in US you fish it uses phone GPS to show only fish for that area!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: tropical Retreat was purchased in 2013 by 4 friends (Charlie, Chris, John & Chuck), that have enjoyed fishing together in Key Colony for over 10 years. One of the owners is a 10+ year resident of Key Colony and will give you the personal attention you deserve on your arrival. We created LACE Properties LLC and purchased this property so that we could not only continue to enjoy all of the amenities that Key Colony offers, but could share with those who feel a need for a little 'Tropical Retreat' for a week or longer themselves.

Why the Owner Chose Key Colony Beach, FL, USA:
We chose this location because one of the owners is a year round, long term resident of Key Colony which includes its' own Police Force. This home offers all of the comforts of your own home with an onsite owner that will respond and address any issues that may arise. We take great pride in our hands on approach to making your stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
With a wide deep water canal and a 37.5 ft. dock, you can be in the gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic ocean within minutes of casting off. Captain Hook's Bait and fuel dock is readily accessible from end of canal. The 'Cabana Club' Is A Private Beach and Swim Club Offering Members And Their Guests: A Sandy Ocean Beach, 65' Heated & Cooled Pool, Game room, Cocktail Lounge, Large Sun Deck Areas and a Snack Bar.
