About our home

Our second home is located in Key Colony Beach in the middle of the Florida Keys. Since it is our second home, we are available for non-simultaneous exchanges. Being in the middle keys, our location is perfect for exploring the entire keys (within an hour and 15 minutes from every location on the Florida Keys). It is bright and airy and the patio has a gorgeous open water view of Bonefish Bay to enjoy the Florida Keys sunrises. The front of our home faces Shelter Bay and has beautiful sunsets that rival Key West. Due to being destroyed by Hurricane Irma in 2017, our home had to be completely rebuilt -- so EVERYTHING is brand new. It is beautifully furnished with all of the modern appliances. It has one bedroom with a queen sized bed, and a queen sized pull-out sofa in the living room. There is a bonus room with a half bath and full-size fold-down futon. You would have membership access to the Cabana Club (walking distance ~ 0.5 mile) where you can enjoy the beach, pool, cabana bar, snack bar, etc. --http://thecabanaclubkeycolonybeach.com/


More about us

  1. We are Tom and Kathy, a middle-aged couple who love to travel. Tom is recently retired. Kathy owns a medical transcription business in Indiana, which is our primary residence. As our Key Colony Beach home is a second home, we do not require a simultaneous exchange. We have two grown children, including Graham (age 33), a scientist at Stanford University performing cancer research, who occasionally uses Love Home Swap. We have been members of Home for Exchange for 10+ years and have enjoyed many wonderful exchanges, and are looking forward to many more!

Where is it?


Ideally located as a base for exploring the beautiful Florida Keys. Miami or Ft. Lauderdale is where most people fly into and we are a 2 to 3 hour drive south from there (depending on traffic). Key West, located at the south end of the Keys, is a short 1 hour drive south from our home and has much to offer in the way of nightlife and shopping...not to mention the famous sunsets at Mallory Square. Key Colony Beach has a public par 3 golf course and tennis courts. We belong to the Cabana Club which is less than half a mile away and offers a sandy beach, heated pool, cabana bar, billiards and arcade games. A world class dolphin research facility is less than 15 minutes away at Grassy Key. The fishing capital of the world is Islamorada which is about 30 minutes away.
