Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Pack your bags and enjoy Florida's most beautiful area! You don't need a passport to the American Caribbean - The Florida Keys!

This home is a spacious and beautifully decorated ground-level pool home on the "preferred" side of the 100' wide clear canal. This 3 bedroom and 2 bath home is clean and tastefully decorated for your relaxed vacation in the Key Colony Beach. A well stocked kitchen for the cook in the family and a largeTV in the great room for the couch potatoes. Keep your boat outside the door at our large STEPDOWN dock with water, electricity and fish cleaning table and bait freezer (in garage). Parking for your boat trailer on premises. There's a gas grill to prepare your fresh catch!

You can enjoy your own pool right outside. You can also access a private beach (Inch Beach) just a short walk away. An ocean view is out the front window.

The open living area has a reclining sofa and a 50" internet TV. It is open to the kitchen, dining room and sunroom.

The master bedroom has a private bath with dual sinks and a shower. It is furnished with a king bed and TV. The first guest bedroom has a king bed also and 26" flat panel TV and the 3rd bedroom has a king bed and a 32" flat panel TV. Our sunroom also has a queen sleeper sofa and 32" flat panel TV. And of course we have Wi-Fi.

Key Colony Beach is only 2 hours from Miami and only 1 hour from Key West. It is centrally located in the Keys so it's just a short trip to visit the other islands, and the 7 Mile Bridge is just minutes away.

About Ann Wenger

We are a couple from Ohio who started vacationing in Marathon in the mid-90's. Then we discovered Key Colony Beach and knew it was the place we wanted to have a vacation home. We bought our first home in January of 2001 and have traded up a couple of times to get to this home where we are going to stay!

Ann Wenger purchased this house in 2010

Why Ann Wenger chose Key Colony Beach

This home was exactly what we were looking for in a vacation home. We wanted single story because how many times have you gotten in the boat and forgotten something and have to run back to the house? Plus, we aren't getting any younger.

It has an open floor plan, large master and rooms large enough for guests. Of course there is the dock where we keep our boat and still have room for another 30' boat. We love the pool and have made many, many upgrades to the backyard and the pool area.

The neighborhood and proximity to Sunset Park, Inch Beach and all that Key Colony Beach has to offer sealed the deal for us!

What makes this house unique

Privacy! This home has no neighbors to one side and the other side has a home with lots of palms and plantings. We added a row of Areca Palms to provide extra privacy. We have a large yard and driveway so there is plenty of room for your trailer (1 allowed per property in KCB) and extra vehicles.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Plenty of good fishing and weather and we were able to spend some quality time with our son and his new wife. Looking forward to coming back next year for another couple of weeks. Since going to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba two years ago, this is the only thing I have to look forward to each year and really appreciate the comfortable accommodations afforded to us. I left several pieces of sea glass I picked up at the beach the day I left Gtmo and placed them under the glass table in the sunroom. Thanks by all & best wishes.



(OWNER NOTE: I TOOK A PICTURE OF THE SEAGLASS AND TRIED TO ADD TO THIS COMMENT BUT I COULDN'T PASTE IT IN. VERY PRETTY ADDITION TO THE ITEMS UNDER THE GLASS ON COFFEE TABLE. THANKS, ANN)

Amazing!!!! Amazing house, amazing location, amazing homeowners to deal with. Just amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for 2 full weeks and enjoyed every minute of it. Not your typical "well used" rental property. You can tell Ann takes great pride in the property as it is a 2nd home for them. Kept a boat in the canal the entire trip and the canal is very easy to get to from Vaca Cut. I can not recommend Ann and her house enough. Wish I could go back TODAY!!!!

Beautiful Home/Awesome Pool

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 spent a week here in June. Ann and Steve were very easy to work with and very quick to answer any questions. The home and pool were better than depicted. VERY roomy home for the 4 of us. The home was well stocked and very comfortable.

We rented a boat from Vacation Boat Rentals in KCB for the week and docked it at the house. Very easy access to ocean. Had a fun day down in Key West but otherwise hung out in Marathon. It had everything we needed for the week. Especially loved the pool. Was nice to just jump in after being out in the boat all day. Soooo refreshing. Thanks Ann and Steve. Hope to return soon.

Me and my family came here for our week vacation in the FL Keyes, the house had everything we needed, inside and outside the home, plenty of dock space for a 30' boat, I would reccomend this vacation home to all, We will definately return next year.
