Wonderful family getaway to Marathon!
"We just got back from spending an awesome week at this house. The house is located in a convenient location in the middle of the key. You are a close boat ride to both the 7 mile bridge and Vaca cut which made getting to the gulf very quick. The house itself is very nice. The bedrooms are spacious, beds are very comfortable, the kitchen, living room, and outdoor porch areas are huge. One night during our stay we had 3 other couples over for a dinner party and were quite comfortable. The pool is very clean and the hot tub is large and seems brand new. There are bikes, kayaks, rafts, and countless other toys and water supplies. A freezer for bait and ice is right by the long seawall. We fit 3 boats along the seawall one day. Overall I highly recommend this house for your next getaway.
I am going to point out a few recommendations to the owner. This is not meant to dissuade any renters, because this house is great, just a few suggestions. For the price we paid, there are a few things that could be approved in my opinion. The wifi has very poor signal. The kitchen, while decently equipped, could really use some nicer cookware. I completely understand that it must be hard with renters overusing the cookware, but I really like to cook and had expected for a house at this price we would have a little better tools. The ice machine in the fridge doesn't make enough ice for a family of 3 (and we had 7 people). This isn't a big deal - just expect to stock the freezer drawer with ice for drinks. The living room has 4 fans which was WONDERFUL - but a few on the porch in place of the tiny lights would be nice.
Thank you for a wonderful family vacation!"

"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!"

"My family (2 kids and I) along with 2 other couples shared this house. We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation. The property is very private and sits right on the bay. My son and brother caught many fish right in the backyard. The pool was wonderful---and kept very clean. The house is situated within walking distance of a Walgreens and Dollar Store. The grocery store is only a few minutes car ride. Also, Sombrero Beach is just 8 minutes away by car. Rich (the property manager) was very responsive to the few problems we encountered at the house. I would definitely stay at this place again!"
