Wonderful quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation at the Kelly's Kottage on the Key. It is brand new and in pristine condition. Everything is so clean! It was a peaceful, quiet, setting with tropical surroundings. We found the Kottage to be well equipped with everything we needed for our vacation. It is one bedroom but the space feels much larger. The high ceilings and tall doorways make it feel even more spacious. The windows and sliding glass doors are tall and we loved letting in all the natural light. The beach is just a short stroll up the street and we had perfect weather to spend hours there swimming, reading and napping. We brought our boat along and parked it in the Kelly's slip right behind their home. The free boat launch directly across the bay was convenient and there was plenty of room for trailer storage on the Kelly's property. Our sunset cruises at the end of the day on Lemon Bay were amazing with spectacularly colorful skies as the sun went down. The kitchen is well stocked for dining in. We had a delicious dinner at Farlowe's on the Water (our favorite) while listening to live steel drum music. We also enjoyed the Tiki Bar at the White Elephant Pub and had a good take-out pizza from Giraldi's. We like ice cream and LOVED A Better Scoop on Indiana Avenue in Englewood. We highly recommend the Kottage on the Key and are looking forward to our next stay there!

Fabulous February!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic home! We were able to bring our kayaks and launch them right into the bay from the property....there is walk-in access next to the dock. Also loved being able to walk to the private beach in a minute! Englewood Beach, and all that the area has to offer (restaurants, market, boating, night life, etc) is just under a mile south...easily reached by bike, car, or on foot. Highly recommend this Kottage!

Perfect location

This is a great unit, super close to the beach but also with great boat access. Great spot for a couple with or without a boat.

Although our stay was short and the weather did not cooperate, we would love to return and spend time on the beach. This place is a real gem.
