Recent Key Colony Beach reviews

  • Excellent family vacation destination

    "My family and I arrived at the rental after a long drive and the rental was refreshingly clean, and stocked with everything we needed just like home. Plenty of room for a teenager, child, grandmother, and my husband and I to retreat and spread out in the rental. Location was incredible, because Marathon is in the center of the Keys, so we could take a short trip to many adventures in the area, such as snorkeling and fishing, which I highly recommend both while your there. There was no crowds, no hustle and bustle, and no waiting in lines anywhere we went. The front porch was wonderful in the evenings for just relaxing and enjoying the breeze and view of the ocean. The Cabana Club is located across the street, and it was nice to swim in the cool pool on a hot day. The beach was incredible to swim and lounge at! The staff at the Cabana club was very friendly and answered questions and gave suggestions on dining and activities in the area. The owner of the rental was quick to respond to questions, and very helpful! Definitely plan on returning!"

  • Plenty of Pros, a few Cons

    "We just got home from our stay here and figured we would share our experience. Overall we had an amazing stay and would definitely return. There were plenty of Pros, and a few Cons to this rental. Pros- 1- The location was perfect. We never stayed in Key Colony Beach before and when we return we will definitely be staying there. There were a few great restaurants within walking distance, our favorite being Sparky's Landing which we went to 4 times. 2- Access to the Cabana Club was a huge bonus. It was great for the days you wanted to just lounge around and drink by (or in) the pool or go to the beach. The food and drinks there were all great and very reasonably priced. The beach there was also very well maintained and had very little if any sea grass. 3- THE BACK YARD!- The back yard was amazing and was perfect for fishing and sight seeing. We caught a ton of fish right off the dock like snapper, grunts, catfish, and a few others we couldn't identify. We were also visited daily by some manatee which the kids loved and saw sting rays, barracuda, and some Sargent Majors directly under the dock. We brought our kayak and paddle board and enjoyed nightly sunset paddles. 3-The property manager (Barry I believe) was extremely attentive to any issues we had and was over within minutes to help. 4-Garage storage space!- we couldn't find many other units that had this amenity and allowed us to store our bicycles and fishing equipment in. 5- Included a garage full of goodies to use including 3 kayaks, bicycles, tons of fishing equipment and tackle, life jackets etc. Everything was in much better shape than what we expected from a vacation rental. 6-The master bed was amazing. It was some sort of memory foam mattress and both my wife and I slept amazing while there. There was also an abundance of towels, linens etc, that were great. Cons- 1- The toilet in the master bath was kind of wobbly. We were afraid we were going to tip over when we first got there but got used to it by the end. 2-the kitchen faucet is extremely loose and not well fitted. We were afraid it was going to rip off whenever we washed dishes or our hands. A simple tightening of the nut under the sink should fix it. 3- the couches in the living room are extremely worn and could be replaced. That being said they were very comfortable and I actually fell asleep on one the first night which I haven't done in ages. The Pros definitely outweigh the cons for this unit and we will definitely ret"

  • Always a great place to great away from it all! Fishing and family fun!

    "I usually make the annual trip down to do some fishing down in the keys. Sometimes it's with family and at other times it's with friends. There's never been a disappointment with something for everyone to do. This residence has a deep water canal in the back yard which is only minutes to Vaca cut. If you are a Tarpon fisherman, Vaca Cut is the best place in the keys for the silver kings! Vaca Cut offers easy access to the back country as well as the Atlantic. There's also a snook light in the back yard with plenty of juvenile snook sitting in the shadows waiting for a tasty offering. The fish cleaning station is always clean and fully functional, ready to prepare the day's catch for the backyard grill. The back yard amenities are cozy and quiet. Plenty of seating, lounge chairs, tables and shade to bring you to your happy place. Inside the residence it is clean and comfortable. Linens are always fresh and clean as is the rest of the residence. Air Conditioning blows cold throughout the house. As far as the kitchen, all I've really used was the refrigerator and coffee pot, both of which look fairly new and clean. Speaking of appliances, there is a washer/dryer setup as well as a full size chest freezer for your week's catch. There is ample parking for a couple of vehicles as well as a boat trailer. Do yourself a favor and use the Cabana Club membership which comes with the rental. This is the highlight of the trip when I take the family down. The club has a manacured beach with waitress service, chaise lounges, bar, swimming pool, lunch menu, hot tub, tables, ect. It is a well maintained resort. The kids love it as do the wife and I. When speaking with the property owner, she has always been friendly and accommodating. She does whatever necessary to fill any special requests or address problems when they arise. In conclusion, I have stayed at one other place in KCB and it was more money for less value. Plus, the property owner was difficult to work with at the other location. Since I have found this unit, I will never even look for another unit again. Thanks again for all the wonderful stays!"
