About Patrick Espie

My family and I live in the mountains of Northern New Mexico near Taos. We love hiking, skiing, fishing and the beach. We travel a lot and enjoy spending time with each other creating great memories. We sincerely hope that you enjoy our home!

Patrick Espie purchased this condo in 2013

Why Patrick Espie chose Marathon Area

The Florida Keys are truly a tropical paradise in the United States. After traveling throughout Florida over the years we found this to be our favorite! Key Colony Beach is a beautiful quiet yet fun beach side community close to everything. You can walk just about everywhere while here. The marina has fishing charters, boat rentals, snorkeling and scuba diving. Sparky's Landing is a Great Restaurant within a short walk from where you stay. Great company, food/drink and they will even cook what you catch for you! If you like beautiful tropical sunshine, warm inviting waters and relaxation then you have found the perfect place. With all of the great places to visit within a short drive there really is no other place like this in Florida! Our property is fresh, comfortable and just like being at home as you need to only bring your clothes and sunscreen. We truly hope you enjoy our home as much as we do!

What makes this condo unique

There are many reasons why we love our property in the Florida Keys. It is hard to describe but the following may provide you with some ide why we love it:

Enjoy the beautiful weather all year even in December and January where the temperatures are in the 70s while the rest of Florida is much colder. This condo comes with a heated pool, tiki huts, gas grills, shuffle board, lawn chairs on the grass and a beautiful sandy beach to enjoy the warm inviting waters of the Florida keys.

Best Location and Beach

  • 5 of 5

Sea Isle and Patrick's condo are fabulous. We have been coming to the Keys for 25 years and Key Colony Beach is a great location. There are not many condo areas with a stretch of beach like you get at Sea Isle. Plus the loungers by the beach, grills, tiki hut for shade, a nice swimming pool and a beautiful property. The condo is on the third floor with stairs, so best suited for stair-friendly "knees." The condo is large and well stocked with everything you need. There are two balconies so you can sit outside and enjoy your morning coffee or the evening sunset. Many activities, dining, and attractions are in close driving distance from the condo. We will be back!!!

Wonderful Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the Florida Keys. The Sea Isle location can't be beat. The private beach is beautiful and is raked daily for sea grass. Chairs and loungers are provided. There is also a tiki hut and plenty of palm trees for shade. The girls enjoyed the swimming pool and had fun with the noodles provided. The condo was clean and nicely furnished. We sat on the balcony each morning to have coffee and soak up some fresh air and sunshine.

We walked to Sunset Park most evenings to watch the sunset. The view is great and we met many nice people. There is even a group that sings nightly.

I've been vacationing in the Marathon area for many years and truly love Key Colony Beach. It is quiet, safe and has a nice community feel to it. Sparky's restaurant makes a great fish taco and even has carry out service if you are too tired to eat out. We also enjoy Leigh Ann's Coffee shop for morning coffee and pastries. If you want dessert, try a piece of chocolate covered frozen key lime pie on a stick. It is so good! It is made by the Key West Lime Pie Company but you can buy a slice at the Tom Thumb (right up the street by the traffic light to get into Key Colony Beach).

Thank you Patrick for sharing your home! We enjoyed it.

great location, beach and condo!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Patrick's condo! The location is wonderful, close to some great restaurants and walking distant to Sunset park. The condo was in a safe area, it was clean and updated. The girls enjoyed the raft, pool noodles and beach toys that were available for use in the condo.

When looking for a condo in the Keys, there were very few condos available with a sandy beach access that appeared safe for the kids. This condo had a beautiful, clean sandy beach with BBQ grills and plenty of lounge chairs. This girls got to snorkel around the jetties and look for shells and marine life. There was a local bike service that will deliver bikes, kayaks and paddle boards to the condo, however we did not find out about this until our last night there so did not rent from them. Patrick has their card on the counter in the kitchen.

Look for the iguanas-- my daughter was walking across the lawn at the beach when an iguana ran in front of her and sat on the rocks. She ran to me screaming a large lizard was chasing her, lol. They we're pretty, posed for pictures; don't get close to them, as they will whip you with their tails according to the locals.

Patrick also recommended several restaurants; we ate at Island Fish Co, Sunset Grill, and Sparkys; all wonderful food. LOVED the sushi (Key West Roll) at Sunset Grill. We also cooked some meals on the grills at the beach. Most of the restaurants will cook the fish you catch.

The condo is also close to the turtle hospital, which is definitely worth visiting. After our visit to the turtle hospital, we walked across the 7 mile bridge were we got to see a large sea turtle in the ocean!

Key West is about a hour away, due to the slow speed limit. If you have time, check out Duvall Street and that area for great shopping (better than the other keys, due to the cruise ships, I assume). We also took a 2.5 hr boat ride to the Dry Tortugas National Park. Great snorkeling and Fort Jefferson was neat to tour. We saw lots of colorful fish, jelly fish and reefs. My husband saw 2 sharks.

Overall, would highly recommend Patrick's condo. You will not be disappointed, we will rent from Patrick again if available in the future. Thanks!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the Keys and decided to stay here to be centrally located. It was perfect for that or days when we just wanted to hang out at the beach there. The condo is great and everything was as pictured and described. The owner was great to work with and suggested Sparky's as a place to eat. It's a must! Great food and service. We are already discussing our next trip to the Keys.
