About Maria Tabares
Maria Tabares and Janet Bailey lived in Indiana and purchased this home as a rental property in 2011. They have decorated it and furnished it as if they had lived there themselves.They have purchased high end appliances, mattresses and linens. They are professionals who own other companies and know how important customer service is to everyone. They have since moved to Grassy Key and live one mile from Key Lime Kottage. They know how important customer service is and they want your experience to be top notch! They both grew up in Indiana so Hoosier Hospitality is very important to them!
Maria Tabares purchased this House in 2011
Why Maria Tabares 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.
What makes this House unique
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!

This was our 2nd time at Key Lime Kottage. Initially, we went to Marathon because my brother is a resident of Grassy Key RV Resort, located 2 driveways after Key Lime Kottage. Great place for our family to vacation together but not overcrowded as we have our own place.
3 years ago, my Beloved Mother Lillian, who was 93 yo and her sister Andree, who was 91yo then, were with us along with my brother Andy and my very good friend Mary. When we arrived, my Mom saw the beautiful lanai with the pool and hot tub and after many years of not owning a bathing suit demanded we go to Beals to purchase her bathing suit. Mom and her sister daily enjoyed swimming in the heated pool and relaxing in the hot tub. We had decided to re-book for the following year but my Mom fell sick 5 days after we returned home and lost her battle to cancer 1 yr later. It was her last vacation and she had absolutely loved it. Great memories were made during that stay even a mock wedding! It was a 2 week vacation I'll never forget.
My very good friend Mary decided we should book 2 weeks this year. And so, we did. My brother, my aunt and we asked our friend, Andree to come along. At first, it was difficult to be there without my Mom, however, it was nice to be back where there were great happy memories of her. While there last week, it was the 2nd anniversary of her death, and Maria came over with a beautiful bouquet of Red Roses and White Calla Lilies, my Mom's favorite flowers, in her memory.
I don't know about anyone else, but, I've never rented a vacation home where the owners personally are so caring and giving. Not only is this house a hidden gem but it is extremely clean; every amenity you could ever need or want; peaceful, serene and beautiful sunsets. Once you go to Publix to purchase your food and libations, you never have to leave. It's like having your own private resort. And best of all, if you need anything or have questions or concerns, Maria and/or Janet the owners, are a phone call away and they only live a few minutes away. It's a win-win care free vacation!
Next year, I'm retiring on March 8th! We already booked Key Lime Kottage from March 9th to April 6th. That's right, for a month!
"If you're lucky enough to stay at Key Lime Kottage, you're really lucky"!
Thank you Maria and Janet. See you next year, same time, same place!
Yvette R and the gang!
Thank you so much for your continued trust in us and for your continued patronage over the years.
We are so happy that you had such a great time and look forward to having you back for the month of March in 2019.
We had a wedding we were attending and our family would rather be in a home then in separate rooms in a hotel. This was a perfect home for that. Maria went out of her way to accommodate our ever changing plans, needing to get in earlier to be ready for the wedding and wondering about the high chair and the pack'n'play. The pool was a dream and the water temperature was fabulous and perfect for our 8 month old granddaughter. Our daughters and families left on Tuesday so my husband and I could enjoy the sunshine, privacy and glorious sunsets for an amazing 3.5 days. As business owners we work all the time so while there are bikes, fishing poles and canoes we just basked in the glorious laziness of the Keys and the wonders of Key Lime Kottage! I am sure we will return it was just what we needed to disconnect.
Thank you so much for the kind words. So happy it all worked out for your family. I am also so happy that you and your husband were able to relax and have some quiet time for yourselves.
We hope you come back and relax at Key Lime Kottage again soon!
