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. The folks that owned this rental dubbed it as one of the prime spots to spend the Key Colony getaway. It is also a good starting point in case you’d like to walk towards the golfing meadows or the tennis park. In case you take your kids along, the playground is within reach.

2. Luxury at Doc's Holiday (from USD 264)

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.

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
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
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 362)

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 250)

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.

The owners have been easy to work with and always wanted us to be happy
We look forward to more wonderful vacations in our home away from home
Overall a good place to stay A few minor issues that we emailed about on our last evening there and hoping they fix those issues prior to the next renters going in
but we did not let that bother us

The location is convenient to all that is offered in Marathon
The house is a duplex as most rentals here are

5. Oceanside duplex (from USD 364)

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 278)

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.

7. Waterfront home with beach access

Having a rental with a large dock is enough to address any concerns by renters with yachts. The space may be too large for a kayak but big enough in case you’re a canoeing enthusiast with a big boat to park. Makes sense with a property just a few steps away from the Key Colony Beach center itself. Not only is the dock big but the property is also large. Two out of three bedrooms found in this home are equipped with a full bathroom. The open-concept kitchen here has attracted tourists who would rather grill their dinner outdoors in the middle of the week-long stay.

Found close to the Key Colony Beach center itself, renters in this property realized how most attractions are within walking distance. It is one of the most spacious places to book the week with two out of three bedrooms found in this two-story house, having full bathrooms.

9. Luxurious paradise retreat

Within walking distance of the Key Colony Beach Center, this duplex is guaranteed to provide a luxurious paradise retreat not only for you but also for your pet. As one of the ideal properties to stay the week in the Middle Keys area, previous occupants booked to have access to the Cabana Club attractions as well, with its owner being a member with privileges. And those privileges apply to the renters as well. Pet facilities apply only for one pet and an additional USD 20 charge will apply if you have more than one pet.

10. Dog-friendly half duplex

This vacation rental is just a few steps from the Key Colony Beach center. The dock spans at 30 ft (9 meters), enough space to put your canoe or kayak in whenever you feel like hanging out by the house before sunset. Previous occupants book the week here to take advantage of the rental owner’s Cabana Club privileges. That will allow you to enjoy the Club’s beach access and opportunity to play in their golf course.

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.
