Key Colony Beach is heaven. It's a family oriented key . I've been living here for over 20 years and there is no better place I would rather be.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
I have a lot of requirements for our rental in the Keys. Margo's Place meets every one of them--Cabana Club, covered balcony with nice table for eating dinner outside, W/D., central AC, our own dock, easy access to either ocean or bayside, close to Publix and many great restaurants, private setting, sun in the am & not in the pm, and covered parking. We LOVE Margo's Place.
We had a great week there. The house is very comfortable & very well equipped with everything you'll need. If you're bringing a boat as we did you'll really appreciate the close proximity of the boat ramp at MM54 & the Dive Shop next to Vaca Cut bridge where you can fuel up & get bait. They are both with-in a mile of the house & getting out to the ocean only takes a couple of minutes in well marked Vaca Cut Channel. You're only a couple of blocks from the KCB Cabana Club where my kids went every nite after boating. The property manager, Jean will insure your stay is enjoyable. There was an A/C issue when we 1st arrived & she had a A/C repairman there within an hour to fix the problem!! There's adequate parking for 2 vehicles & a boat trailer. Anything & everything you could possibly need is within a couple of mile radius..
Definitely will be returning! Everything was as we hoped it would be. Beautiful home and view!
The house was great. Lots of space for me and my husband and our 2 teenage sons. We loved being canal side. We don't even have a boat. But my sons really enjoy fishing and they fished in the canal all the time. We saw stingrays in the canal and 2 nurse sharks. The Cabana Club is included in the rental. We swam 3 times, it's a beautiful pool. We had a super vacation. As an FYI, kayaking from Robbie's Marina to Indian Key was fabulous. Also great fun to feed the tarpon at Robbie's. Snorkeling at Looe Reef was another highlight. We took the boat out of Bahia Honda State Park. Excellent experience. Key Colony Beach is a good location in the keys.
very clean,every thing you could need was there.only need dvd player,LOl.
stayed a week snorkeled,coffin patch,sombrero reef,Bahia Honda park,
and Christ Abyss in key largo...and some fishing.
next year we,re staying 2 weeks.
and Big Thanks to JEAN !!!!
From the beautiful sunrises in the morning to the spectacular sunsets in the evening, we enjoyed being guests at Margot's Place. The living area is spacious and the kitchen is very well equipped. Most importantly, the beds are exceptionally comfortable as are the recliners in the living room. We especially enjoyed dinners on the deck overlooking the boats on the canal and the skyline of KCB with palm trees swaying in the breeze. We were within walking or biking distance to pickleball, par 3 golf, tennis, beautiful Inch Beach, and all of the restaurants on KCB. We launched our kayaks from the dock in front of the property and enjoyed boat rides and occasional sunset cruises. Many hours were spent just relaxing in the beautifully landscaped yard while reading a good book. Whether you prefer activity or quiet, Margot's Place is a perfect vacation spot!
Margo's Place Had it All!
This home had everything and then some! Great beach bikes, kayaks - both single and double - beach chairs in the unit that were not advertised with it, so fabulous surprise! Easy access to Inch Beach, as well as walking distance to the Sunday concerts at Sunset Park. Lots of living space and got visits by manatees, rays, jellyfish and even sharks one evening. Enjoyed getting to know the neighbors on either side, who don't rent their homes, so you always know who will be next to you. Loved our time at Margo's Place!

Thanks for your compliments. It was our pleasure to share this nice home with you. We look forward to your return in the future.
This house was clean, spacious and in a great place. The neighbors were friendly and there is ample parking. Room for 6 and close to everything. This one is a keeper.

Thanks for your review, Tom. It was our pleasure to have you stay with us. Winter season booking is challenging and we will let you know if an opportunity opens.
Has Everything We Look For
First of all, Key Colony Beach (in my opinion) is the best place to stay in the Keys--private, well-laid out, access to ocean and Gulf, best restaurant anywhere (Key Colony Inn), boat docks at almost every house, and convenient to Publix & Winn Dixie in Marathon and to a really good public boat ramp. The house itself has everything we want in a vacation rental--upstairs living space with parking for boat trailer and two cars under the house, a balcony with a table for eating outside in the evenings, downstairs storage, Cabana Club membership (a must for us--private pool and lounge on the ocean with a good lunch menu), a good washer and dryer, location that faces east (so it's cool in the afternoons & evenings in the summer on the balcony), well-equipped kitchen, fast wifi, excellent TV incl Netflix, and easy access to Vaca Cut without having to go out into the ocean. The property mgr is extremely responsive. We'll be back next year.

Thanks, Elaine. Always a pleasure to have you, family and your guests stay with us. Look forward to your visit again next year and hope you get more lobster!Cheryl
Great KCB location with comfortable accommodations
We planned to stay at Margo's Place again for Jan/Feb of 2021. With COVID-19 restrictions applied to international travels for Canadians, we sadly advised the property manager in July we should cancel our stay in KCB for this upcoming winter. They were extremely understanding of the situation, wished us well, and returned our full rental deposit within days. We love this community, this property, the people involved, and truly hope we get a chance to visit again in 2022. Regrettably this will be our first time in 13 years to miss our winters stay in KCB.

Sorry we are going to miss you in 2021 but look forward to seeing you as soon as things get better. Stay safe. Hopefully, 2021 will see better days.
Sunrises, sunsets - magnificent! On the water (you couldn't get any closer!), waves gently lapping while enjoying coffee or cocktails. Comfy beds, fully appointed kitchen, tastefully decorated, extremely spacious living areas. Away from the crowds, serene and peaceful. Enjoyed it immensely, what a vacation, can't wait to come back!!!

Very comfortable home. Fully equipped kitchen. Excellent location. PLENTY of parking so you don’t have to pay Key Colony a extra $50.00 to park your trailer. We have a 28 foot boat and plenty of dock space. This Duplex faces EAST which is a huge plus. Our family had a wonderful vacation.
Stayed: May 2019Submitted: June 06, 2019
HOUSE HAD EVERYTHING WE NEEDED. WE COOK USUALLY WHEN ON VACATION AND THE KITCHEN WAS NICELY APPOINTED. HOUSE WAS CLEAN. BED COMFY. SHOWER HAD GOOD POWER. GOOD WI-FI. ONE SUGGESTION WOULD BE PATIO UMBRELLA DOWN BY THE CANAL FOR LESS SUN WITH MORNING COFFEE.ONLY ABOUT A 8 MINUTE RIDE AT IDLE SPEED ON OUR BOAT TO OPEN OCEAN---NOTE...KEY COLONY BOAT RAMP IS CLOSED. BUT IT'S ONLY ABOUT 1 MILE FROM HOUSE TO MARATHON RAMP. AND QUICK BOAT RIDE TO THE HOUSE TO TIE UP. NICE FISH CLEANING TABLE WITH HOSE RIGHT THERE. PLENTY OF ROOM FOR YOUR TRAILER AND TRUCK. INCH BEACH WAS COOL. WE DIDN'T GET TO THE CABANA CLUB TO CHECK OUT THE POOL THOUGH. AND JEAN IS KNOWLEDGEABLE OF THE AREA. KEY COLONY BEACH COMMUNITY IS FABULOUS.
