1 Sofa Bed

Located in The Colony, a secluded compound just steps from Duval Street, Colony Poolside is a peaceful retreat. Enter the home through the serene and inviting living space, accented with blue and white decor, wood floors and pops of color from nautical-themed accents and artwork. A vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and huge transom windows that extend all the way to the tip of the roof add a bright and airy feeling to the cozy space.

The fully appointed kitchen is attached to the living area and features a generous sit-down bar and charming open shelving. Through the French doors lies a private deck for sunning, relaxing, grilling and al fresco dining.

The bedroom is accented with wainscoting and features cathedral ceilings, a king size bed, and flat screen television.

Back outside the front door is a porch with Adirondack chairs for enjoying a morning Cuban coffee or a twilight glass of wine amongst the palm trees. The large Colony swimming pool, which is shared with other residents, is located just steps away. Beaches, shopping, and award-winning restaurants are just a short walk or bike ride from your front door.

If you are staying with a large group, please note that Rent Key West Vacations has two other similar properties to rent within this enclave - Colony Sunset and Colony Calypso.

Bedding: 1 king, 1 sleeper sofa

Parking: There is a small parking lot for cottage guests and available on a first come first parked basis. If the lot is full, there is on-street parking right on Olivia Street and on surrounding side streets and lanes.

My husband and I totally enjoyed our stay at The Colony, 714 Olivia St #7. It was within walking distance to Duval and other areas of interest; the property was well maintained on a daily basis and the staff was friendly.

We loved the cottage. Isa and anyone else (Jan?) I dealt with via email/phone were extremely responsive and helpful. Suggestion may be to label some of the light switches as there are a few that I still don't know what they controlled. We don't watch much TV on vaca so the TV being in the cabinet didn't bother us. The bed bothered my back slightly but not my hubby's. We would love to return and overall loved the cottage. Thank you.

It was a very nice place to stay. A few minor things could be improved, like the wobbly bedframe, or the lack of sharp knives (could barely cut cheese) and cutting boards. Overall, I would not hesitate to stay here again if I ever come to Key West (which I doubt due to being so expensive).

Review for Colony Poolside

by Recent Guest
We loved the Colony poolside apartment that we stayed in! It was clean, well organized, and the pool was clean. It is close to Duval street but not too close to hear the after dark nightlife. We rented bikes to travel around the island and that was a great investment, definitely get bikes! The only compliant was the bed, it was pretty soft and on a metal stand, seemed like a murphy bed. But I would definitely stay here again! Manager's ResponseThank you for your review of Colony Poolside and recommendation. We greatly appreciate your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon!

Bright, clean, well run and maintained

by Recent Guest
My wife and I came for FF, as did most of the other guests. There are a dozen or so separately owned units. Our unit was centrally situated just for steps from the pool. The entire complex is fenced and there’s a coded locked glass door entryway. Grounds crew came every morning and kept things spotless. Our unit was great. It’s a 5 minute walk on Olivia to get to Duval. We rented a scooter for one day but just walked otherwise. This unit was the only one with an awning, which was a plus. The owner lived on site and they were really nice and helpful. Definitely will rent again

NOT WITHOUT INSURANCE

by Stacy S.
Great room. But Tropical Storm Elsa caused a 3 day delay in arriving into Key West. Our room sat empty for 3 of the 7 days. No refund, no credit. Do not lease without travel insurance. The rental company will not make any adjustments in charges even due to “out of your control issues” or Hurricanes. Nice place but vacation ruined by delays/storm and this company is all business and no service.

Excellent Experience All Around

by Edie P.
We stayed here last year and enjoyed it so much, we came back last week. It's the perfect little bungalow and pool. We rent bikes for the week and use those to get around. The location is perfect. The only small thing that might be improved is the lack of very basic bathroom amenities, as there was not even a bar of soap so we had to go buy one. Other than that, we had a perfect experience!

Great Cottage - Incredible Management

by Rebecca R.
My husband and I came here for our honeymoon in November and had the most amazing experience. The cottage was clean and well-decorated, the pool was well-maintained and relaxing, and the location was perfect - a short walk from the excitement on Duval Street, yet nestled in a quiet neighborhood. The AC went out the day we arrived, but management was extremely responsive and had the unit replaced the next morning. Fortunately, there were ceiling and standing fans in the bedroom, so we weren't uncomfortable. The most impressive part of the stay actually happened after we checked out - my husband left his brand new wedding band in the cottage, which we didn't realize until we had made it through security at the airport. I called Joyce at the Rent Key West office to tell her the situation and she immediately reached out to Seth, one of the property employees, who drove the ring to the airport so we could get it before our flight. Joyce and Seth seriously saved the day and we are still amazed that they went out of their way to make this happen! We would absolutely recommend Colony Poolside to anyone planning a trip to Key West.

Charming Cottage Perfect For Two

by Recent Guest
We searched for while trying to find the place for our week long stay. We decided that the price and amenities were perfect for us. Only a few easy blocks away from Duvall street, and about a mile walk to the beaches. House had everything we needed. Kitchen, private bathroom, grill, pool, air conditioning...Owners were great! Made sure we had everything we needed, place was clean, asked for a propane tank and it was provided and hooked up right away! Thank you very much!Mostly very quiet with families staying, couples, doesn’t appear to be a “party place”. Private And out of the heavy traffic of Duvall. Often people in the pool but there was always availability at different times throughout the day and evening. Restaurants and grocery within walking distance. Great place to stay, cheaper than hotels and just like home away from home. Thank you

by Erin C.
Great spot right by the pool. The bungalow was clean and comfortable for us. Pool was very nice and everything was well maintained. We enjoyed cooking some meals there and had all the things we needed to cook. In a quiet neighborhood but easy to walk to the hustle and bustle. You don’t even need a car in key west.

Adorable hideaway

by Pamela M.
Charming, comfortable, clean, quiet. Walking distance to everything. I felt safe coming and going from property and wandering around KW solo. AC unit in bedroom and humidifier were pretty loud and had to turn off at night to sleep. I think it would be a tight fit for more than 2 people. Very nice for me as a solo visitor. Definitely worth staying there again.

I almost hate to recommend this place, because we want it to be available when we come back! Colony Poolside could not have been better.

The cottage was very nicely decorated and appointed...everything was ideal and when we come back, we'll stay here again!

Poolside retreat in Key West

by Recent Guest
My wife and I recently stayed at the Colony Poolside in Key West for 6 nights and it was like a home away from home. From the time we were greeted by the friendly and professional staff at check in, we were very pleased with our decision to stay here.The location is great, just a few blocks from Duval street and convenient walking distance to groceries, shops and restaurants, but far enough from the bustle to be a quiet retreat. The bungalow itself was clean, bright and well appointed. We had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Not a day went by when we did not enjoy a dip in the pool just outside our bungalow. The only criticism is about the limited parking; there are not enough spaces available for the number of units so we had to look for street parking during part of the time we were there. Other than that we had no issues and we would definitely recommend this space and stay here again if we return to Key West.

Traveling with two small kids

by Recent Guest
We came to Key West for a few days with our 3 year old and 8 month old, and felt totally comfortable and at home at Colony Poolside. The cottage had everything we needed and was a cozy spot to come home to after a long day having fun in the sun. Particularly great was that we could put the kids to bed and then sit out on the deck within easy earshot of them.

Everything about this rental was terrific. Its location was perfect; in a quiet charming neighborhood that was a five minute walk to Duval Street and Hemmingway House. Property was spotless and well decorated with a comfortable bed. The cottage felt very private and secluded even though there are other cottages in the courtyard. Poolside view was a bonus. I would definitely return to this property!

Hemingway Days at the colony poolside

by Billie D.
I travel to KW often but this was my first experience with Rent KW Vacations. Check in was quick and easy with early check-in and easy check-out with being able to leave the keys at the cottage which I appreciate. The cottage had everything I wanted including a TV in the BR/LR and a CD player; comfortable king bed and AC in BR/LR. I rent a bike when I travel to KW and the cottage was convenient to all destinations; Island Grocery is a block away for stocking immediate needs and Faustos not far for speciality items. I had a great time and hope to stay with Rent KW again in the future.

Great place to stay

by Audrey R.
I have been coming to Key West for the last 8 years. I would definitely recommend this place because of many factors and would stay there again. Rent Key West is super and accommodating. The place was comfortable and well decorated. The location is in a quiet location but very close to the center of the action on Duval Street and not far from the historic seaport (I bike everywhere). The bed was comfortable and the kitchen well equipped and I enjoyed the barbecue grill. The only negative was the on site laundry facilities were inoperable during my stay but I drove to a laundromat. One other thing to note the owner of this unit appears to be involved to make sure everything is nice and operable. I stayed for six nights and we loved it all in all it is a cute cottage in a super location with a shared pool.

This was our 2nd stay at The Colony. We love the fact that our friends can rent cottages at the same time for a group feel, but we still have private spaces. It's a great location with a very secluded feel. There were a few areas for improvement this year, but overall another great Key West stay.

Colony Poolside - Cozy, Peaceful and Close to Everything

by Pamela B.
This was our 12th visit to Key West. We enjoy the laidback lifestyle, the people we meet, walking and exploring hidden treasures all over the island, and eating our way through new and old favorite restaurants. Colony Poolside was the perfect home base for our visit. Quiet, comfortable, clean and centrally located, the cottage looks exactly like the photos. Everything was well-maintained - the only negative was that we never found the iron even though there was an ironing board. It got cool (50's) during our stay and there were plenty of extra blankets and a space heater. We aren't "pool people" so the limited space for laying out in the sun didn't bother us. We never have a car in Key West and walk an average of about seven miles each day. We took long walks to Smathers Beach, Ft. Zachary Taylor, and even rode bikes to Stock Island for lunch at Hogfish. Key West has a thriving high-quality independent restaurant scene, but visitors will need to venture off Duval St. to find it. Highly recommended: The Flaming Buoy, Nine One Five, La Creperie, Off the Hook, Santiago's Bodega, Seven Fish, Onlywood, Azur, Garbo's. For great wine, conversation and recommendations, visit Mark at Uva Wine Shoppe on Fleming. If you really need to relax, book a massage at Ocean Wellness Spa. And if you're into the blues, check out Barry Cuda's schedule around the island. We will definitely return to the cozy, peaceful and convenient Colony Poolside.

Colony Poolside - Cozy, Peaceful and Close to Everything

by Pam B.
This was our 12th visit to Key West. We enjoy the laidback lifestyle, the people we meet, walking and exploring hidden treasures all over the island, and eating our way through new and old favorite restaurants. Colony Poolside was the perfect home base for our visit. Quiet, comfortable, clean and centrally located, the cottage looks exactly like the photos. Everything was well-maintained - the only negative was that we never found the iron even though there was an ironing board. It got cool (50's) during our stay and there were plenty of extra blankets and a space heater. We aren't "pool people" so the limited space for laying out in the sun didn't bother us.

Colony Poolside

by Recent Guest
This is the third time we stayed at this rental. Overall, it is very nice. It is very well located, the furniture, etc. of the rental is lovely and comfortable. The pool area of this condo needs better maintenance. It's starting to look seedy and the rental unit could use better and more comfortable outdoor seating.

Paradise poolside

by Recent Guest
This is the fifth year we have rented through Rent Key West. First time at Colony poolside. We always love our stay, and the service we get from Rent Key West. This trip was no exception. Colony poolside was perfect for our 9-day stay. Giving us a lot of elbow room and the big pool was a treat by Key West standards. May I suggest an upgrade to quieter Air Conditioners? We found them too noisy for sleeping, but not enough to change my 5 star rating! Fortunately it wasn't too hot and the ceiling fans did the job.

Fantasy Fest Week

by Recent Guest
We enjoyed the property a lot. It was well equipped, comfortable and very nice. The only suggestion we would offer is to install a full length mirror in the bedroom or the bathroom as that would make it a lot easier to get dressed, especially when trying to wear the "perfect" costume.

50th Birthday Celebration

by Kim S.
Colony Poolside was exactly as pictured online. The two of us found it cozy, romantic and conveniently located to Duval Street. We parked the car, rented bikes for the week, and biked everywhere we wanted to explore. Thank you for a fantastic birthday celebration!!

Key West Comfort

by Recent Guest
We returned to this cottage after many years and visits to Key West. It was as lovely as we remembered. The well-stocked kitchen, living dcor and bedroom comfort allowed us all of the amenities to truly enjoy every minute of our stay. The location is convenient, yet provides a peaceful escape for true relaxation. The ONLY complaint is that more towels would have been nice. I don't like to have to pay to launder towels while I am vacationing.

Good location, nice decor....

by Audrey A.
Colony Poolside was just like it shows in the pics, very nicely decorated and equipped, easy bike ride to Duval.....only issue we had was the parking is minimal and very tight. We parked in one of the designated parking spaces for the property - we were blocked in by another car illegally parked (not in a parking space) on Tuesday of our week. We repeatedly asked the rental company to get the car moved/towed, whatever so that we could get our car out and they basically did nothing. Very stressful as we had an early morning leaving time on Sunday morning. We were still blocked in on Saturday afternoon, finally got our car out only when other guests moved their cars during the changeover on Saturday, no help from owners. Also, the apartment had a perpetually mildew smell but not overwhelming once you were inside. If quiet or sleeping in matters you might want to ask if they are doing construction there on the property. We awoke to construction on the unit next to us for three mornings, but it didn't start till 8 or 8:30, not a big deal as we don't normally sleep in.

Exceeded expectations

by Kim H.
Property was exactly as stated. Clean, every amenity needed, all in working order. Great A/C. Pool was wonderful.Quiet location yet short bike ride away to everything. Could not have asked for a better place! We enjoyed snorkeling, dinner cruise, toured Fort Zachary Taylor, went to the beach, did a bike tour of the island with Floyd at The Moped Hospital, rode bikes all over the island. Recommend the Green Parrot, Mangia Mangia Italian, and Schooners Wharf.

Colony Poolside - Perfect Vacation Cottage

by John Carlyle M S.
My husband and I have rented places in Key West on 10 different trips. This cottage offered all the perfect amenities, location and privacy we hoped to have over the week we stayed there. The decor is fun and the place was spotless. We will definitely stay there on our next trip.

Cozy Nautical Condo in the Heart of Key West

by Jackie M.
My husband and I recently enjoyed a wonderful week long stay at this condo in Key West! We certainly made the right choice when selecting Colony Poolside for our vacation. This condo is slightly larger in person than it appears in the photos, and offered the perfect set up for two people. Upon arrival, I was impressed by the cleanliness of the condo, as well as the little nautical touches throughout the space. The owners have really done a great job with the details and we loved admiring the charm of the decor. As others have noted, Colony Poolside is ideally located. The street itself is rather quiet, but it's only a short walk to Duval Street. We opted to fly into Miami and enjoy the drive down, however, we didn't use the car once after arriving. Many of our neighbors opted to rent bikes, but we truly enjoyed just walking around town- for coffee, breakfast, dinner, shopping, or just to take in the views. The condo offered just the right amount of amenities for your convenience. We found that we had plenty of fresh, clean towels for bath & pool, as well as linens. There was a hair dryer under the sink and hand soap on the sinks. Plates and glasses were plentiful.When we weren't strolling about town, we did take some time to enjoy the pool. It was a comfortable temp and there are a decent amount of chairs around. A bit small but we didnt need much.The only drawback to this rental seems to be the parking. Due to the limited amount of parking space, there is a good chance you may have to find on street parking. This was the case when we first arrived, but we were able to find an on street spot just one street over. I should also note that dealing with the rental company was a great experience. They were attentive and friendly. The concierge service was great with follow up and staff was so easy to work with. Overall, a wonderful trip that we hope to repeat again soon!

Our stay at the Colony Poolside was just perfect! The location was perfect and within walking distance to everything.

I would definitely recommend to stay here and will most definitely come back! Thank you for a lovely stay!

Close to the action, but a peaceful escape

by Will K.
Just a few minutes walk from duval, a perfect balance of having all the bars etc nearby, but peaceful enough when sitting out by the pool that you're not disturbed by noise. Poolside itself was great, impressed with the facilities in the rental, and all clean and comfortable. Only thing missing is a steel to sharpen the knives...!

Beautiful Location, Great Service

by Karen O.
We had an amazing time! The Colony is in a great location in Old Town. It is within walking distance to everything, but is very private and secluded. The pool area and grounds are clean and well-maintained, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this property.

Our Stay at Poolside

by Kenneth W.
Had a wonderful time at the Colony Poolside! Clean, and well kept. Short walk to Duval St. Only one small issue while we were there, the Wi-Fi didn't work at all and then the cable somehow got shut off. Not that we watched that much tv anyway. I would recommend this to all my friends. We will be back!

Quaint and cute!

by Julie C.
We absolutely loved this cottage! The decor was tasteful yet comfortable and relaxing. It was clean, neat and organized. Directions were available for how to use items as well as where certain things were stored. My only gripe was that there weren't enough hangers but I survived :). And the location was awesome - close enough to ride a bike to everything you wanted to do but far enough away from the hustle and bustle. It was the best vacation ever!!

The Place to Stay in Key West

by Recent Guest
We were most pleased with our stay at Colony Poolside. The location could not have been better--within walking or biking distance of everything we wanted to do and see and every restaurant on our list. Less than two blocks off Duval St., the cottage and immediate neighborhood were surprisingly quiet. The cottage itself is beautiful, with a well-equipped kitchen. So, when we visit again, I'm sure we will want to stay at Colony Poolside. (I have already recommended it to friends!)

Nice stay- watch parking

by Jennifer U.
Really nice pretty and clean place. Just wish they'd have reserved parking in the lot they own in the complex. The first nite we had t opark on the street and risk getting a ticket since its all residential parking around the place. We got up at 7 am to move our rental car. And then the next dat someone decided to park a boat next to our car in a non spot so I couldnt even get in my side of the car. Overall the place was super nice, just wish they would control their parking spaces like other places in the area do with a tag.

Key West

by Sylvia and Robert R.
We had read online comments about the musty odor when you first arrived and that was still true for our stay. The property though was spotless and absolutely adorable! After airing out, it was fine. The doors stuck and the shower rod curtain needed to be replaced (it kept falling when you'd pull the shower curtain to close). But the property was really nice. We'd stay again.

Great Stay!

by Michelle P.
We stayed 1 week and really enjoyed our vacation!The property was exactly as pictured, very clean, convenient location. We never got to use the pool, but we saw others use it, and it was cleaned regularly as well as were the area around the cottages. The office staff were very nice and helpful. The only thing I would caution is the parking. As stated in the property description, there are some spots available, however only 5 spots for what appears to be 7 properties. We only got a spot 1 day I think. We did get 2 parking tickets along the street which totaled $90 🙁 Just be aware of where you park. Overall the stay was FABULOUS and I would do it all over again :))

LOVED IT!

by Jennifer P.
My fiance and I rented this cottage/condo last week and absolutely loved it! We are both 30 and enjoy being in the center of all the action, partaking in a few? adult beverages, but also prioritizing relaxing and enjoying some serenity on vacation. As soon as we walked into Colony Poolside we knew our vacation was going to be perfect! Not only is it located in the best location(3 blocks from the center of Duval, walking dist. to everything), it's also incredibly peaceful and lovely! The inside of our rental was spotless, and it was so obvious the owners have a unique talent for decorating and take much pride in caring for their property. The classy, nautical decorations, furniture, and original details were just perfect! I even took pictures for help in decorating my own nautical themed house! It was modern and very cool, and had plenty of room for the two of us. Also, fully equipped with plenty of towels, a nice TV, and cooking utensils. Outside was equally as beautiful....the two private small decks for hanging out were great. The pool with sorrounding palm trees for some shade was incredibly peaceful and relaxing. Colony Poolside is in the perfect location for all the action, but was always quiet. Other renters/owners were kind and friendly too! This place made our vacation perfect, and we would DEF. recommend staying here for your trip...way better than the hotel option! I wish we were still there...working is so overrated 🙂

Life is short

by Paul S.
Very clean,and at the right distance from all the noise. We had a great time. Would recommend the following; take the Yankee Freedom to the Dry Tortugas, the cost is $320.00 for two, worth every penny. Do happy hour at the Green Parrot Bar live Band and great prices. Lastly go the Boat House for Happy Hour best deal on the island.
