"This property is absolutely AMAZING! My wife and I searched the entire Caribbean for a romantic, secluded getaway for our 25th wedding anniversary and we are so glad we found the Key Lime Kottage. From the moment you walk in you feel right at home. The interior is very clean and perfectly decorated with colorful artwork and comfortable wicker furniture. The three bedrooms and two bathrooms are nicely decorated and very comfortable, from the soft linens to the fluffy white towels. We loved the full kitchen with everything you need from pots and pans to a corkscrew and even a gas grill right outside next to the large wood deck for grilling steaks and seafood. In fact, we bought enough groceries at the nearby Publix on Marathon to cook most of our meals during the week and saved a fortune on restaurants. However, the best part was the privacy outside where the grounds are very secluded from the rest of the world to relax and unwind. The owners provided so many amenities to enjoy outside, from the screened pool and hot tub, to the kayaks and bicycles, a waterfront private dock and a large elevated wood deck. Everything we needed to enjoy the keys right from our own backyard. We really enjoyed relaxing by the pool and soaking in hot tub – which also has a flat screen TV to watch the games. Even the screened in pool is nicely decorated with large potted trees and several sun loungers, each with its own pillow. We launched the kayaks from the private dock to explore the nearby coves and also fished from the private dock where we caught small striped grunts and fed them to a white egret that waited patiently nearby. We also packed a lunch and used the bicycles to explore the Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail which starts about a half mile west of the property and runs right past the Curry Hammock State Park on the way to the Seven Mile Bridge and Pigeon Key. It’s no wonder our anniversary was perfect – thanks to a romantic week at the Key Lime Kottage. However, be forewarned there is one problem with this property… we loved it so much we ended up cancelling several planned excursions to the other keys just so we could stay on the property and relax. Thank you for sharing this perfect little slice of heaven. We can’t wait to visit again!"

"I spent a glorious week at White Sands and will be returning for more. I've been staying at properties on Morton Street for about 15 years now. White Sands is the best of all. I wanted for nothing - it's got it all. Wonderful dock that treats you to wildlife at every turn, relaxing beach right out your back door, a fantastic pool just as private as could be, porch views all around the home, a wonderfully stocked kitchen with all the best appliances. Just writing about it makes me want to go back right now!
Nearby are great places - try Curry Hammock park for kayaking and you'll be lucky to see some bonnet head sharks. Marathon has a fun movie theater with tables and chairs instead of rows of seats, so you can enjoy dinner while you watch a movie. Bahia Honda State Park is not to be missed. Go to Sandspur Beach and you will find a beach right out of the Caribbean. The snorkeling off the beach is fantastic and if you love shells, it's the place to find them. Key West is always fun - the Hemingway House, Audubon House and even the Trolley Tour is fun. The Tropic Cinema is an award winning art house theater and a great place for a rainy day.
But, with all that said, you don't really need to leave White Sands at all to have an unforgettable vacation. The home is perfect. Enjoy!"

"Stayed at Lions Lair for a week. The room was large enough and we had everything we needed. Well equipped. Very clean and well maintained grounds. The view from the pier had a nice view of the water as did the jetty.
Thought the air conditioner would be a problem. Not so, it was so quiet that you did not even know it was running. If you want a peaceful and relaxing vacation I would recommend this rental. Thank You Hans and Lisa."
