About Lucille

We purchased the home in April 2016. We knew right when we walked into the house that it would be a wonderful place for a family or a group of friends to gather. I have my own travel agency so I have spent my career selecting the best locations for my clients. I have tried very hard to make our home a place where you can come and relax, enjoy your family and friends but still feel surrounded by a wonderful setting and a home that lets you know you are on a vacation and in a special place. Even though it is a home I tried, and believe I have succeeded, in making sure you know you are on vacation from the moment you pull into the driveway.

I know you will enjoy our house as much as we do.

Lucille purchased this house in 2016

Why Lucille chose Key Colony Beach

A wonderful property in Key Colony Beach with 4 nice sized bathrooms, 3 bathrooms, with a private dock on a lovely street. Our entire family can be extremely comfortable in this home. The bedrooms are private and with three bathrooms it is extremely convenient for everyone. It is meticulously maintained with beautiful views, walking distance to the local restaurants, the Cabana Club with a nice large pool, beach, restaurant, and "Tiki Bar" (can't have a vacation without a Tiki Bar), Sunset Park for gorgeous, unobstructed Sunsets on every clear night,

What makes this house unique

A great floor plan with a kitchen open to the dining area but still a little separation for the living room. Huge glass sliding doors across the kitchen/dining and living room so there are unobstructed views of the100 ft.canal, dock, and very comfortable back patio area.

Our home is located very close to Sunset Park and within a very short bike ride to Sharky's,

Havana Jack's, the Cabana Club with pool and beach. It is completely tiled in Travertine and freshly painted in a beautiful blue for a relaxing and vacation atmospher. Plus with four bedrooms, and three bathrooms there is plenty of room for privacy and being comfortable.

Beautiful home in a "resort feel" location!!!

  • 5 of 5

Would give this Review Ten Stars if Allowed.

My wife and I had the opportunity of staying at Griffin's Great Getaway the first week of March, 2018. The home is located in the town of Key Colony Beach which is just out of Marathon Key and considered a "Middle Key" in the Florida Keys. Point is, this is a great base location if you are flying in from Miami or Fort Lauderdale and want to be close to Key West without the long drive.

The four-bedroom, three bath home is beautifully decorated and was just so comfortable. Exactly like the summer home you always wanted. Quality appliances, easy to find kitchen tools and accessories. Well lit home, night and day. Beds were fantastic. There were three or four TVs with one in the living room that was huge. The house setting is so beautiful however, you will find yourself day and night outside either at the Club mentioned below or chillin' under your private Tiki Hut.

Loved the wide dock that overlooked the quiet canal. Kept my 21' bassboat tied to the dock with no problems. Water and electrical were nearby and easy to wash down the boat every evening.

We had access to Key Colony Beach Cabana Club which was about three easy blocks away. The Club has a pool, private beach, liquor bar, sandwiches and ice cream. Easy to get lost all day in the shade or sun at the Club.

We felt so secure in this area. There is one causeway that leads into and out of Key Colony Beach so the area is very private. While we did not use them, the house came with everything from beach towels, and bicycles to Cozies to hold your cold soda.

We liked the location from a boating standpoint as we could get out to the Atlantic Ocean (no bridges) or Florida Bay/Gulf of Mexico within five minutes. We sometimes fished and then went to a waterfront restaurant for dinner by boat. There are a couple of boat ramps nearby (we launched at Bonefish Bay ($10/launch) as it is in the protected waters of Key Colony Beach. Very nice folks.

Key Colony Beach has a park called Sunset Park. At sunset, folks from the community (50-125 people) walk to the Park with a glass of wine and toast to the sunset. How fun. Everybody is always in a great mood and wave to each other as you walk, drive or bike around. Again, when you are staying there you feel like you are at your own vacation home. All are welcomed.

Can't wait to book again and get "lost" for a week or two at Griffin's Great Getaway in Key Colony Beach, Florida.

We had a wonderful time and the home was excellent.

  • 5 of 5

The property was completely redone after the hurricane. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked through the door. Very clean, had all amenities that one could ask for. The furnishings were awesome. The owners had exquisite taste in decorating the home with beach type accessories. We felt like we were truly in a tropical paradise. They also had new plantings outside and the patio was wonderful with a tiki hut and a swinging chair. We had mornings outside with our coffee and evenings outside just relaxing and talking about our experiences of the day. If we decide to vacation in Marathon again, we will certainly try to stay here. We had 6 people and we had more than enough room. The home has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The owners were very nice to work with. All in all, one great escape to paradise.

Nice home on the canal.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice place to stay. Home is nicely decorated and comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked and has everything you could possibly need. Bathrooms were nice and had lots of containers for storage of bath related items. TV's and internet worked very well. On our first night there we had a 10-12 foot bull shark swim by so would strongly warn everyone against swimming in the canal. Hot tub at Cabana Club was not functioning post Irma but the pool and bar area was great. They did a great job recovering so quickly after the hurricane. We loved hanging out at the tiki hut and dock during the day. Our only complaint, and the reason for only 4 stars, was that the neighbors directly across the canal had a very large bright light that was on every night. The light shines right in your eyes and you cannot enjoy the dock, tiki, or patio at night. The owners did install a blind on the front of the tiki hut but the light just shines right through it. The light is so bright we had to lower the blinds on the sliding doors in the kitchen and family room at night to cut back on the glare. This is not the owners fault but we thought people should be aware of this before renting. Would definitely rent here again if the neighbors light issue was resolved.

Owner's Response: Hi Shari, I am so sorry the light across the canal was so bothersome. Good news I have contacted the owner of the home and they have installed a metal filter over the front. This will substantially dim the brightness across the canal to our dock and deck. It is unfortunate I was not aware of this discomfort during your stay because I may have been able to address the situation. I feel bad that the light disturbed you and hopefully that is not one of your first memories versus the shark you saw swimming right off the deck. Now, that the light situation across the canal has been addressed I hope you will consider our home for your next visit to Key Colony Beach. Thank you

Located on one of the nicest streets in Key Colony Beach with the 37.5 ft deep water dock at your back door East side for cool afternoon breezes. Immediate access to the ocean and bay at Vaca cut. New Tiki Hut for relaxing and overlooking the water. Tiki Hut has a sun shade for early morning sun. The patio, tiki hut & dock are shaded in the afternoon so much cooler

Cabana Club, a private beach club pass is included for a maximum of 8 guests for their entire stay.

Walking or biking (2 bikes included) distance to Key Colony's 9 Hole 3-Par Golf course, tennis, Sunset Park and shopping. The unit is also within walking distance of Key Colony Beach’s 3 restaurants & bars (Key Colony Inn, Sparky's Landing, and Havana Jack's), Leigh Ann's Coffee House (breakfast or lunch), liquor store, Par 3 Golf Course, charter boats, gas dock, bait shop, rental boats, dive shop, tennis courts, basketball courts, bocce courts and playground. Pickle ball courts are available.

Marathon Key is a 10-mile stretch of island 2 hours south of Miami International Airport in the middle of the Keys island chain.Plenty of great dining, shopping, plus close to the grocery stores and all the necessities you need. One hour fifteen minutes from Key West making for a great day trip.

Bahia Honda ranked one of the best beaches is 20 minutes away, Sombrero Beach is 15 minutes, and John Pennekamp State Coral Reef State Park 45 minutes, just to name a few of the sites near our home.

Fodor’s Travel ranks The Keys as #4 in the world for places people want to vacation. With its crystal aquamarine waters, warm ocean breezes, and slow island living, we couldn’t agree more!

Come and find out for yourself why the Key Colony Beach is nicknamed the Gem of the Florida Keys.
