Interaction with guests
Keys Ocean Drive keyless lock system is for your convenience & safety, no lost keys & no prior guests/maintenance men have keys etc.. Select your own code at contract signing. That means that everyone can come & go as they please! But remember, always close & lock all 8 slider door locks every time you leave! Also remember that our Isand of Key Colony Beach is really safe, just call City Hall & ask about strong Police presence/low crime. A good reminder: KCB City speed limit is 25 mph upon entering our Island off of US1. So SET your speedometer immediately, as 25 mph feels like you are creeping along, & our Police WILL ticket. KCB has a 'limited' walking, jogging, biking path next to sts., & we're lucky to be on this path, see pics!

This was the third time we've rented this house and as usual it was great. They updated some of the outdated furniture, which was a nice surprise. I can never say enough nice things about this rental. It's a short walk to the beach and to Sunset Park which is a perfect spot to watch the sun go down. We...

Management response:

Thanks for the great review Maldonado Family. We gladly welcome you back for your 4th stay. And thanks for mentioning the newer sofa & love seat, it really is comfy isn't it (my husband just commented about the comfort on our own trip down last week!)... In fact, I just got back from a 2 week stay supervising more projects!...

Seriously, if you are looking for a place in the Keys you can stop looking now. I don't know how any place could beat this one. The house has EVERYTHING you could possibly need - you can literally just bring yourself and your clothes. I cannot think of anything negative to say. We stayed a week. I originally chose the...

Management response:

Tara- Thank you for such a great review! You and your family (with or without doggie) are always welcomed back! And as good as the unit was on your recent visit, I am flying down for 2 weeks in June to oversee additional upgrades to make our rental even better! So hurry back! Palm wishes, Patty

The Island of Key Colony Beach is in the middle of the FL Keys adjacent to Marathon Mile Marker 53.5. Fly into airports: (Marathon airport no longer in operation, except for rental cars & private air craft) Key West MM 1-5 or Miami International (MIA) -2 hours north, Ft. Lauderdale (FLL) -2.5 hours north or West Palm Beach (WPB).

Most of us prefer FLL airport as it is so much easier to maneuver thru vs. Intl. MIA!!!

Plus their rental car system is the BEST- from baggage claim walk out to shuttle bus to ALL rental cars located in a 4 story complex. Pickup & drop off car at this complex, return to terminal on shuttle buses.... Do allow more time for the busier rental car cos., as check in could take some time with longggg lines!!!
