Guestbook comments from the owner:

The house is beautiful and right in Key Colony Beach. Everything that you need is close by and easy to get to. The house is right on the water and we fished everyday right off the dock when we got hot we would go to the Cabana Club which is right down the street. We also went to Key West which is only an hour away! This house was a beautiful place to stay for me and my friends and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice place to stay.


Apr 2018

Tasteful, clean, well-equipped, great location,
5 of 5
Whenever we travel to key colony and need a place to stay, this property is where we inquire first. The owners are easy to work with, the kitchen has everything we need for preparing excellent gourmet fish dinners from our catch and the neighbors are pleasant. Refreshing change from the ill-equipped, tackily decorated rentals in the same price range. Great house.


Aug 2017

We had an amazing time. The house was perfect for our family of four. The only thing we would have liked to have known was that there were no hand soap, dish soap or trash bags in the house. Other than that we loved our stay!


Jun 2017

The unit was spotless upon arrival with all of the amenities exactly as described. The gas grill was very convenient and made family grilling and dining easy for me (dad). In addition, with such close proximity and visibility of the dock I was able to watch the kids fish while I prepared meals. The dock was wonderful; it was very spacious and we spent hours fishing off of it (we even saw a manatee! :) ) With a ladder off of the dock we were also able to kayak down the canal which was an amazing experience. My kids very much enjoyed the nautical-themed bedroom. Each room offered plenty of lighting and the master bedroom was plenty spacious for my wife and I. The master bathroom connected to the master bedroom was a very nice bonus. The porch offered great views of the canal and was a very pleasant place to enjoy the sunset. As a whole, the property offered close proximity to the Cabana Club, as well as some of the top places for fishing and dining in the Keys.

Denise was very professional and a pleasure to rent from. She was very helpful, answering all questions that we had (and we had a lot LOL :) ). We will definitely be renting from Denise in the future!!!


May 2017

This was our second year in a row renting this home, and again everything was just perfect for us ~~ although the weather could have cooperated a little more as far as being able to fish offshore!

Denise and Barbara (the realtor) were great to work with! We will be back!!

Florida Keys

I was so happy to return to my favorite vacation spot in Key Colony. The house is beautiful and the Lawhorn’s are so easy to work with. The renovated kitchen is pristine and well equipped with everything you need. It is in a quiet neighborhood with a dock overlooking the canal. I particularly enjoyed the Cabana Pool Club and Beach and there are a lot of activities for the entire family. Restaurants are nearby and it is only 50 miles from Key West. Can’t wait to visit next year!

What a way to start off the New Year!

Key Colony Beach is indeed "the gem of the Florida Keys." It offers shops, restaurants, beach and pool access, golf, tennis, and really friendly people. I enjoyed a phenomenal jazz concert and a hilarious play at the Marathon Community Theatre. The half duplex I stayed in was really nice and had all the comforts of home. It's an easy drive to enjoy the shopping and dining in Islamorada. Of course, you must make the hour drive to the amazing Key West. There's something for everybody there - a people-watcher's mecca. I have been coming to Key Colony Beach for over 20 years. Every visit is relaxing and fun. Of course, the weather is indeed Paradise. I'll be back.

Amazing stay!

We arrived to this property Saturday afternoon and found it exactly as pictured, and very clean. The decorations make you feel right at home, and all appliances work great, there is even an extra cooler in the laundry room downstairs which served great for fishing trips. Once in your boat it’s a couple minute right to either the Atlantic or gulf and it was very easy to put the boat in the water at the public ramp within 2 miles of the house. The key colony area is very quiet and clean and was the perfect spot to relax, fish, dive and enjoy the beautiful weather.
