The VRBO Bear stayed at the Key Lime Kottage and he could ‘Bearly’ stand to leave…..
I must first just say, the owners of this incredibly nice property in the Central Florida Keys are impeccable vacation rental owners in every single regard. The VRBO Bear was very impressed. Every nuance and detail of the property is top-notch and they take great pride to ensure that their property is impeccable in every regard.
The swimming pool and hot tub, enclosed by a lovely Florida screened room provided a wonderful insect-free habitat that my family enjoyed every evening after an adventure-filled day exploring the Florida Keys. It was simply the best. Imagine lying in a hot tub watching your favorite movie on a large screen TV, surrounded by the darkness of a mangrove forest and not another house in sight.
My Bear family and I sponsored a dolphin (Cayo) at the dolphin research center next door to the Key Lime Kottage, and for our membership fee ($100) we were allowed to visit the dolphins at the center every day of our stay for no extra charge. (Except the gift shop, as the VRBO Bear has young cubs.) The center is a mere 100 yards from the Kottage on foot. This alone was hard to beat, but even more fun than that, was every morning and evening we would take the kayaks provided by the Kottage and visit the dolphins by sea… it was so much fun. And about the kayaking… the Bear family explored the entire bay to the north and to the south, including the fascinating mangrove tunnel forest just across the bay. Sunsets on a kayak in the bay in the evening…..in a word, priceless.
Another nice feature the Bear appreciated about the Kottage were the detailed instructions about everything you might have questions about, such as how to load the kayaks from the garage and to the dock, which trash cans were for recycling and when to get them to the curb, to the details regarding the proper operation of the hot tub, and much more. The owners of Key Lime Kottage have thought of it all.
The VRBO Bear likes to cook and there were every manner of quality cooking pots and accessories a chef like the Bear could ever want or need. In particular, the knives were of excellent quality and sharp. The VRBO Bear appreciates sharp knives while cooking and was very pleased to discover this when he started preparing meals. For the VRBO little cubs, my kids, one thing they appreciated was the excellent technology. There was a solid Wi-Fi signal on the entire property and the TV in the main living room for evening movie watching was outstanding as well as the TV at the hot tub outside. And finally, for Momma Bear, when asked what her favorite things were she said there were very nice towels, including an abundance of pool towels, a nicely stocked kitchen with everything that you need to cook meals, there were notes to answer all questions, and there were good pool toys for the kids.
Every detail was thought of to make the traveler experience the best with all the creature comforts possible for a vacation. If you are looking to have a wonderfully private and secluded vacation escape in a premium property managed by owners that genuinely care about your experience you need look no further than the Key Lime Kottage. It was an incredibly relaxing place for the VRBO Bear Family to stay at and they would love to visit again someday!

We are just 5 minutes away from Marathon. Marathon has lots of restaurants, Sombrero Beach, Curry Hammock State park and Bahia Honda beach. There are bike/walking trails too. There is a Publix and Wynn Dixie to go grocery shopping. The Dolphin Research Center is 3 doors down from the house and THE WRECK BAR & GRILL is next door to our home as well. The Turtle Hospital is another wonderful place to take the kids.
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!
