About D.Carole Stamler, Owner
WE LIVE IN LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY WHERE WE RUN A SMALL, FAMILY BUSINESS WITH OUR SON. WE HAVE VISITED THE KEYS REGULARLY SINCE 1994 AND PURCHASED OUR FIRST HALF-DUPLEX RENTAL UNIT ON KEY COLONY BEACH IN 1998. WE LOVE THE LAID-BACK ATMOSPHERE, THE OUTDOOR RESTAURANTS ON THE TURQUOISE WATER, FISHING, SNORKELING/DIVING, THE HISTORY, THE PARKS, THE FLOWERS, VISITING KEY WEST AND THE OTHER KEYS. WE LOVE THE WEATHER, THE BLUE SKY, THE OCEAN, THE SUNSETS. WE TRAVEL TO THE KEYS 4 OR MORE TIMES EACH YEAR TO MAINTAIN OUR PROPERTY AND TO 'RELAX & PLAY' THERE. WE KEEP OUR BOAT AT THE DOCK IN FRONT OF OUR HOME AND ENJOY CATCHING AND EATING FRESH MAHI MAHI, GROUPER, SNAPPER.WAHOO. WE ENJOY DOING NOTHING, SITTING ON DECK ALONG CANAL ENJOYING A PINA COLADA OR COFFEE OR WHATEVER. WE ENJOY GRILLING OUR FRESH CATCH ON THE DECK.
D.Carole Stamler, Owner purchased this House in 2004
Why D.Carole Stamler, Owner chose Key Colony Beach
WE RENTED VACATION HOMES PRIOR TO PURCHASING OUR FIRST HOUSE ON KEY COLONY BEACH IN 1998 (A 1/2 DUPLEX UNIT - LATER BOUGHT SECOND 1/2 AND IN 2004 PURCHASED OUR CURRENT SINGLE-FAMILY RENTAL COTTAGE ON 12TH STREET) BECAUSE WE LOVED THE AREA SO MUCH. WE LOVE THE FACT THAT IF WE CHOOSE TO, WE CAN DRIVE TO THE KEYS AND GET AWAY TO THE 'ISLANDS' OR WE CAN FLY INTO MIAMI, RENT A CAR AND DRIVE 100 MILES TO PARADISE. WE LOVE THE MIDDLE KEYS AS OPPOSED TO KEY WEST WHICH IS BUSIER AND MORE CONGESTED - THO A CONVENIENT & FUN PLACE TO 'VISIT'. THE FISHING IS THE 'BEST' JUST OFF SHORE AS IS THE SNORKELING/DIVING. WE CHOSE THE KEYS FOR THE WEATHER. KEY COLONY IS UNIQUE IN THAT IT IS A 'CITY' WITH GOVERNING BODY AND A POLICE FORCE, SEPARATE FROM MARATHON AND REST OF KEYS. KEY COLONY BEACH IS AN ISLAND JUST OFF U.S.1 ON THE OCEAN SIDE. IT IS MOSTLY RESIDENTIAL, QUIET, SAFE, WELL MAINTAINED, HAS THREE RESTAURANTS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE, A GOLF COURSE, CHARTER BOATS AND BEACHES WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE HERE? COME SEE FOR YOURSELF........

Great location. Very clean. Plenty of great restaurants close by. Easy access to bay and ocean. Beautiful sunset park at end of street. There is current sea wall damage but we were still able to tie boat up.
This was a spacious comfortable, well equipped home.
This home was a wonderful place for a vacation. We enjoyed our stay very much. Everything was extremely comfortable. The deck which faced west was a delight. The community was quiet and everyone was very friendly . Carole was great to work with and quick to help with changes we needed to make and any questions we had. We hope to be able to go again next year.
Happy to hear you had a good week! Hope you will come again. Thank you.
Wonderful home on the water
Since we are boaters, this property was located perfectly for us with easy access to both the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf. The house is spacious and accommodated 4 adults easily. We enjoyed our stay and will be happy to return in the future.
Great home away from home!!
Carole was a great host, and the home was extremely roomy, comfortable and the location couldn’t have been better for lobstering. Highly recommend.
Clean and well kept home
The home is very nice, very clean! There was several minor problems: 1. ghost ants, owner was very quick to get and exterminator out to fix the problem. 2. part of the dock needs to be repaired, I have a small boat, so it was not much of a problem. 3, The outside grill is rusty and needs to be replaced. Over all, good stay, great location (back of house looks east) and the owner is very cooperative!.
Very clean and comfortable!!!
We just spent a week in Carole's home. It was so roomy, comfortable and clean. It had everything we needed, as well as plenty of parking. Carole was very attentive to all of my many questions before we arrived. Very quick response time. The sun room in the back of the home has wonderful natural lighting and stayed very comfortable, even on the hottest days. The Cabana Club(included in your stay) was very nice and convenient. Nice clean pool and a wonderful little beach. Sunset park was just a short walk from the house, and was positioned perfectly to get a beautiful view of the setting sun every night. Carole had provided me with plenty of info about local restaurants, kayak and bike rental, shopping, etc. We had no problem with neighbors or noise while we were there. I did like the idea that it was a one story home. We have rented two story homes in the past, and it can be a challenge when carrying up your clothing, coolers, food, etc. So this home would be perfect for someone who may have a problem with stairs. Key Colony appeared very well kept and the streets and bike paths were well maintained. We had the opportunity to chat with the local law enforcement officers while we were there and they were very helpful as well. This is a home we would definitely stay at again. Whether you are going to the beautiful Florida Keys for a lot of activities(boating, kayaking, fishing, site seeing, etc.) or going down just to relax, the home was perfect for both! We definitely hope for a repeat stay in the future!
Thank you Claire & Family. Glad you had a great vacation. What is there not to love on Key Colony Beach, a beautiful neighborhood?Nothing beats a day at the Cabana Club or an evening at Sunset Park. Many perks there.
