  • Beautifully furnished, Perfect Location

    "Our family had a wonderful time at the Hammerhead Cottage! Key Colony Beach is the perfect base camp - in the middle of Marathon, great amenities (pool/beach), close to grocery/convenience stores, relaxing atmosphere and boat access to spectacular fishing. We got off to a bumpy start due to a snafu with the cleaning company. Natalie immediately took care of the issue! The cottage is beautifully furnished and decorated - Natalie has exceptional taste. The house is well-stocked with just about everything you could possibly need during your stay. We rented a boat and having the dock, cleaning table and bait freezer at the house made our fishing excursions easy and carefree. The girls even fished right off the dock, catching a nurse shark and a barracuda! We visited the Turtle Hospital (be sure to make reservations - they get busy), Sombrero Beach, and snorkeled at Sombrero Reef. Fishing was fun and we got lucky with some snapper! We'll definitely be back!"

  • 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"

  • Home Away from Home

    "We have been spending our winters here for many years. Started out 6 weeks then grew to 4 months. We Love this area and this house. From the huge deck, loft for visiting kids, air conditioned storage, steps to put in the included kayak and large dock for our boat. The house is walking distance to Pigeon Key and the historic 7 mile bridge, Sunset Grille Restaurant where they have a swimming pool, quick access to Gulf Of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. The only reason we are not renting there is because we Loved it so much we bought a neighboring house"

  • Great place in the Keys

    "We had a great week in Key Colony Beach. We enjoyed the location of the condo, the beach, the recommendations for restaurants and thing to do. The condo is well equipped and well maintained and fits perfectly for a family of four."
