“Can't wait to go back!”

person found this review helpful

Stayed for a week at Michelle's lovely beach cottage with my husband and 2 sons. The layout of the place is great--even though it is small it is well thought out and everyone had plenty of room. The house has EVERYTHING you could ask for - bikes, fishing poles (we caught a lot of small snapper off of the dock), a bait table, underwater lights, and a perfect pool and grill area. We made use of everything and had a great time.

Key West and Islamorada are less than an hour away (in different directions) and there is a lot to do with the family in the area.

Both Michelle and Barbara (the property manager) were extremely easy to work with. Check in is at 3pm but I recommend getting to the property manager's office no later than 2:15 and settling in with a book since the office is chock full of renters by 3pm.

Thanks so much--we had a great time!

“Best kept secret - 141 9th Street!”
Reviewed July 10, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

My family and I had a wonderful vacation staying at this well equipped house! Michelle, the Owner, had everything you could ever need while staying at the Keys! We also enjoyed the four bikes that were available for myself and my family. A lot of places you can ride your bikes to especially, the Cabana Club!

Having the swimming pool was exceptional! During those hot days when you wanted to take a break and grill out, the pool made a big difference and in the future, I would never want a house in the Keys without one!

I promise, you rent this house, you will be overjoyed with the experience. All you really need are your groceries and beverages...that being kid friendly and of course adult beverages!

Michelle, thank you again and you will certainly be hearing from us again!

“Top quality rental property”
Reviewed November 21, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This is a lovely and amazing property, prior to arriving at the property i emailed the owner for advice regards the local, Michelle was very helpful offering support and advice regards local activities and amenities. Michelle's home is very comfortable and has everything you need, the location is amazing as is the area its located, i would highly recommend anyone to stay at Michelle's home.
Myself and my partner really enjoyed our week in Colony Key and would look at staying at Michelle's home again the next time we visit.

The only down side to the local area is the beach club, i did visit on one occasion and found rather unfriendly and not a nice environment, we were met at the entrance by an obstructive, negative and unhelpful person who was unwilling to help or offer advice, we got the impression we were not welcome. (Cabana Club)

Thanks Michelle for letting us rent your lovely home it was an amazing week

Thank you for taking the time to provide this great review for us! I am glad you were happy with our home. I am just sorry you did not have a good experience at the Cabana Club. It is usually a fun place to visit to catch some sun, beach, a drink and lunch. We look forward to your return visit. Take care, Michelle Julian

“Lovely House”
Reviewed November 13, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Vacationed with my husband, and another couple visiting from England. This house was perfect for all of us. Our hosts provided everything we needed for indoor and outdoor living.
It is centrally located - an hour's drive to either Key Largo or Key West.
Outdoors - we enjoyed the pool, grill, patio dining set, hammock, bicycles, and fishing canal during our week-long vacation. The lounge chairs were perfect for late afternoon sunbathing. The chairs and towels came in handy for our day trips to nearby beaches. The washer and dryer was put to good use, and the clothesline was handy as well.
Indoors - the bedrooms and bathrooms were supplied with plenty of linens. The kitchen had everything we needed. And the living/dining area had plenty of space for all of us to stretch out after a long day. Also good WiFi connection.
We went to Sparky's, on a very crowded evening. Service was terribly slow, but food was good. I would definitely go back...on a slower night.
Sunset Park is a must-do in the evening. A small group of people gather each evening to sing and enjoy the sunset. A nice way to say goodnight to another day in paradise. There is a small clean beach area there as well, and a long pier for fishing and viewing the sunset.
There is also a private beach club membership provided with this rental. Unfortunately, the beach was closed due to a recent storm. The pool area is nice, with plenty of lounge chairs and patio dining tables/chairs. There is a full bar and food service is provided to all guests. No outside food or beverages are allowed, but the prices were reasonable. We only used it a couple of times for a short while ... we enjoyed the rental home much more!
Our hosts were wonderful, always responding quickly to our communications. Very friendly and accommodating. There's so much more to write, but not enough space ... this is a true gem of a home in the Florida Keys!

PS--We booked this rental thru a management company. It was just 'ok' ... never did meet the manager :( Personally, I would recommend the owners save their $ and get rid of this mgmt company.

“Perfect Centrally Located Pool Cottage”
Reviewed October 30, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My wife and I stayed at this wonderful canal front cottage last month. The community, Key Colony Beach, was secluded and quiet. The location was perfect for exploring all the Florida Keys had to offer. It's about an hour from Key West - perfect for a day trip, which is exactly what we did. 

The cottage was very clean and well kept and the private waterfront pool and hammock were a major bonus. So nice to come back from a long day exploring the Keys and hop in the pool! We also took advantage of the bikes provided by the owners to explore the community and nearby restaurants. 

We can't wait to return to the Keys and when we do, we'll definitely be staying here again. Thanks so much for opening your home to us.

“Excellent home & owners”
Reviewed October 14, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Just finished up a week in KCB. I can't say enough good things about this cozy, clean, vacation home. Sits on the canal with a private pool. The house was perfect for the 2 of us but would accommodate more. 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Bicycles are provided as we used these for exercise, ride to the beach, restaurants, cabana club, and bait store. We really liked the cabana club. Great food, drinks, staff, and nice stretch of beach.

We would fish everyday in the canal with shrimp. Caught numerous fish each day. Underwater lights come on every night and the aquatic life is amazing. The iguana and heron would visit us every day.

Pool, lounge chairs, and hammock were so relaxing. I would definitely recommend and stay here again.
**we stayed during MATTHEW and owner called to check on us several times**

“Loved this place! Can't wait to return!”
Reviewed September 9, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I just returned from an amazing vacation! I can't wait to stay here again. I could not get enough of the pool. I loved how the owner provided bikes so we were able to explore around Key Colony Beach. The house is cozy and comfortable and has cute island touches that feel very bright and cheery. The dock has a light below where you can watch the aquatic life. We had a lot of fun fishing out there and my friend even caught a snook! One of the best perks of this property is the membership to the Cabana Club where you can lay by the pool, have drinks, eat and take in the beautiful ocean view all at the same time and it's right around the corner. I was there pretty much everyday. Will absolutely be returning. Can't wait to go back!
