Grassy Key house description

'Imagine paradise in a
completely secluded location
where there are no human neighbors
on either side of you...'

'Imagine your backyard
is the Gulf of Mexico... '
Key Lime Kottage is managed by the OWNERS not a property management company. Many property management companies manage hundreds of homes. As owners, CUSTOMER SERVICE is our first priority. We make our guests happy ONE VACATION AT A TIME!

Key Lime Kottage is situated just south of mile marker 59 off of US 1. We are 2 1/2 hours south of Miami and 1 hour north of Key West (depending on traffic).
We are between Duck Key and Marathon in the pristine waters of the Florida Keys.
Key Lime Kottage is completely secluded with no human neighbors on either side. Your neighbors are thick Mangroves and Egrets.
Your backyard is the Gulf. Our new pool and hot tub are completely enclosed inside of a 56' x 24' pool enclosure. We have a dining table for 8 in the pool enclosure and also have 8 lounge chairs with 4 small tables for your lounging pleasure.
Key Lime Kottage was purchased in June 2011 and has undergone numerous upgrades.
It is available for rent now.

Key Lime Kottage has:
3 bedrooms and 2 full baths
There is a King sized bed in the Master Suite

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: We live in Indiana and purchased this home as a rental property. We have decorated it and furnished it as if we lived there ourselves. We have purchased high end appliances, mattresses and linens. We are professionals who own companies and know how important customer service is to everyone.

              Why the Owner Chose Grassy Key:
              This property caught our eye because there is alot of privacy in the back yard. You feel like you are engulfed in nature. You will be close to Marathon and alot of activities however when you are at the house you feel secluded and private.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The fact that this house is on such a private setting is what really appealed to us. On both sides no one can build a house because it is protected wetlands. Grassy Key is very laid back and quiet, yet we are an hour away from Key West where there is always something going on. Lots of shopping, great restaurants, bars and wonderful sunsets. We are less than 5 minutes from Marathon where you have two fairly large grocery stores, restaurants and bars. Lots of marinas where you can rent boats and lots of places to charter fishing trips. The unique feel of the Florida Keys is like no other place in the US. You will really be in paradise when you stay here!
