Why Marianela Alvarez chose Key Colony Beach

This property was a dream-come-true for me and my family. We are happy to be able to share our dream and enjoyment with others.

Good times!

  • 5 of 5

When arriving to the home we were pleasantly surprised by the large living space when you enter. There was a lovely welcome bag as well. We had a party of 8 and we fit comfortably. Marianela communicated with us on any questions we had prior to our arrival as well as during our stay. The pool and beach were relaxing with great food and drinks flowing (fyi-pool hours 10am-7pm). We biked and also drove the car to the pool, parking wasn't an issue. Docked a 23ft boat with plenty of space with easy access to the Gulf and Atlantic waters (minutes away). Parking at the home was also spacious, we had 2 trucks as well as a boat trailer. This is a home we will be returning to on our next visit.

Thank you again Marianela for sharing you home! We look forward to our next visit.

Great vacation home!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first home away rental and we were very pleased with our choice the house was very roomy and the open floor plan made for a great family vacation, we had our boat and the location was excellent, a short 3-5 min ride puts you in the Vaca Cut with direct access to the Atlantic or the Gulf . The owner was very responsive to my questions and concerns both before and after our arrival. I would highly recommend the Marathon area, Key Colony and specifically the Starfish house to anyone planning a trip to the Keys

Awesome!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying here and we will be back. The house is well kept and in a great location. The views are beautiful and you are close to the Ocean and Gulf, while also in a very quiet canal. The owners are always amazing and truly loving sharing their paradise with others. I can't say enough about this place and the owners.

A very nice place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We are home again. It was a great time in florida.

Many thanks to you Marianela. Communication with owner before and during stay was excellent.

Your house is wonderful, we felt very comfortable. It has everything you need. The decor is very nice and tastefully decorated. The rooms are very spacious, big beds, very clean, with a lot of attention to detail.

We had 2 kayaks so we could make excursions.

The beach club was an added bonus with a nice beach, pool and food/drinks. There are many activities and wonderful restaurants in that area.

We felt very comfortable, many thanks for the nice time.

Simone and Reiner und our childrens.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We all had a great stay. Home and property well maintained. Communication with owner before and during stay was excellent. The neighborhood is fantastic. Lots of things to do in Marathon but Key Colony Beach area was very wonderful. Community very safe. Location was excellent for boating and fishing. Minutes from Vaca Cut. Fished ocean and Gulf. Wives enjoyed great sunset cruises on Gulf side and when we fished offshore they really enjoyed going to beach club while we were gone. I've been traveling to Keys for 30 years. Bringing my boat down for last several years. This was the best place I have stayed so far.
