1. Reynas Paradise (from USD 179)

This is the vacation rental to book the weekend if you prefer to be a few steps away from the Key Colony Beach itself, which is one-fifth of a mile away, the same distance you’ll walk upon crossing the street from this property.

2. Luxury at Doc's Holiday (from USD 237)

In case this rental’s name is familiar, you may have seen the film “Tombstone” where the hero Wyatt Earp is accompanied by his loyal friend Doc Holiday. The immediate name recall makes the week-long reservation worth it the moment you realize the level of luxury found in this unit. One of the two bedrooms found in this unit has a queen-size bed, ideal for couples. The other bedroom has bunk beds that are big enough for your kids. In case you have a pet to bring over for your stay, just notify the property owner to prop up the place with the pet-friendly facilities in case they are available. And while you’re at it, ask which Cabana Club membership privileges are also applicable with your stay.

Top guest reviews
Amenities & Room:
The kitchen was well equipped and had all we needed THe repairs that were done after Irma were impressive
Really wonderful condo - on the canal (in case you rent a kayak) and with a well-equipped kitchen Downside - The Cabana club is just OK and the living room is pretty cramped
In Doc's defense it did not seem like most people had a grill worth a darn Probasbly due to supply and demand from the storm
Remember if you have a boat you wont be able to keep it at this dock you will have to make an arrangement else where What i loved was the open space great bathrooms and kitchen
Host:
WHat would change was the grill
was always an attraction We like to cook as well as eat out and found the kitchen well-organized and well-supplied with everything we needed
Every thing was new and worked perfectly
My husband and I spent 2 weeks at "Doc's Holiday" and were very happy there
Location:
In my opinion a Q-grill is NOT a grill
It was close to many fine restaurants and the Cabana Club with its heated pool
But still a good value for the area and Marathon is much more fun than Key Largo

3. Spacious waterfront home (from USD 266)

This is the rental that previous occupants come back to for a week to enjoy deep-sea fishing, reef fishing or both. Both can be enjoyed on different days. With this home being less than half a mile (0.8 km) from the Key Colony Beach Center, it is an ideal landmark or starting point to go around the Keys’ major attractions on foot. Renting in this property also entitles you to the member’s Cabana Club privileges from the private beach access to the golfing opportunities, whether you’ve been doing it professionally or just for kicks.

4. Charming waterfront home (from USD 211)

This rental is one of the most spacious homes found on this list. This two-story waterfront home takes pride in its dining table big enough to accommodate up to six diners to go with the exquisite mini-bar. While pets and parties are not allowed in the property, the unit itself is a good starting point for most of the attractions around the area, including the Key Colony Beach Center found a few steps away. Much of its beauty is attributed to its tropical charm, an element that matches the sunny weather in the Keys.

5. Oceanside duplex (from USD 250)

This duplex is so close to the Key Colony Beach Center, it’s practically a stone’s throw away from the property. This is an oceanside property with a hot tub on the back patio for you to skinny dip into as you cap the day. And the hot tub is close to one of the three bedrooms found in the unit. With two of the three bedrooms equipped with a queen-size bed, having at least three friends to accompany you in a week-long stay in this unit means you’ll get to enjoy the Cabana Club membership and access to the beach and the golf course.

6. Relaxing home with a canal view (from USD 199)

The canal view has become a preferred feature for most renters dropping by Key Colony Beach, apart from renting properties with Cabana Club access. It helps them envision kayaking or rowing a canoe in the same canal close to the property. Pretty awesome viewing it too, with your spouse or partner during the sunset. As a rental property within walking distance from the Key Colony Beach Center, it is almost synonymous with gaining access to the Cabana Club facilities, thanks to the rental’s owner. This unit is also an excellent starting point for exploring the other Keys.

An exciting time at Key Colony Beach

The most common feature of these rentals is how the owners’ Cabana Club membership can be extended to the guests. Add the kayaking/canoeing activities and the fishing opportunities by the canal and you have a week packed with interesting things to do. It makes sense why most rentals have a seven-night minimum reservation rule in place. Now all that is left for you to do is check which rental suits your schedule best. Have fun in Key Colony.
