About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)


This is the cutest beach cottage you have ever seen. Totally restored in October 2004. Built in 1936. We added a deck on the top which is wonderful for sunbathing, watching the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico or just enjoying the gulf breeze. You can see for miles. This is on a stretch of beach which is dedicated NO condos or highrises in this area. One of the last VINTAGE Florida places to go.

Granite Countertops, all new kitchen. Very 'Shabby Chic' with all new furniture and some antiques mixed in. Done in the 'Decor' of the 1930's and 1940's (1950's and 1960's too!). Very private. A wonderful honeymoon, anniversary, or special occasion place as well as anytime. Has repeat renters that have been coming for over 25 years!!!

Thomas Doughnuts is across the street from the cottage for the best homemade doughnuts you have ever tasted!

Quaint & Convenient

  • 4 of 5

Location, location, location is the key for the property. Being right across the side street from Thomas Donuts & a few blocks from The Carosel (excellent local grocery & liquor store), not to mention right across the street from the beach is very convenient. The cottage is quite small & a bit dated, sans the renovated tiny kitchen, but functional. The view from the roof deck is hard to beat.

Best Beach Value

  • 5 of 5

The Key Lime Cottage exceeded my expectations! It is literally right across the street from the beach, and this stretch of the beach is much less crowded than areas closer to the more developed parts of PCB. I loved being right across from Thomas Donut & Snack Shop - we ate there every morning and got something new every time. The roof top deck is also perfect for viewing sunrises or sunsets and to enjoy a quick meal. The location is perfect as far as close to the beach, but it is also close to all the amenities PCB offers: shopping, pier, restaurants, and we took advantage of being close to the dog beach also! For the price, you can't beat it. Thanks, Tammy!

Perfect stay as always!!!

  • 5 of 5

OMG. Yet another perfect month in Key Lime. I have been enjoying a month in the fall at Key Lime for almost ten years now. Weather, water, and lovely cottage were great. Watched dolphins and sunsets from the upstairs deck. Also had a nice water view from the front porch patio along with my coffee and a Thomas Doughnut ( Apple Fritters are my personal favorite). I can even see the water while cleaning up the kitchen. Can't wait to get back down there! Thanks Tammy for spoiling me soooo!!!!

Ideal location and more than you expect

  • 5 of 5

Key Lime cottage was perfect for our stay. Across the street from the beach as well as Thomas' Donuts, and down the road from a well-stocked grocery store, all you need is right there. This year our older kids came along, and the 2nd bathroom was a definite plus!! The home has been expanded since 1936, so it is quaint, and definitely on our list for future stays.

Needs better cleaning

  • 2 of 5

We liked the location of the cottage. Unfortunately, I spent hours cleaning before we were comfortable to stay in it. Although kitchen and bathrooms were clean enough, it seems to have been months since it had been thoroughly cleaned. Fans, blinds, doors, walls, vents, under beds, etc. were filthy. Be aware also that there is no table indoors for seating for meals or games. Only a counter that seats two.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I always strive to make each rental experience a positive one. If I remember correctly, you called when you arrived and I asked my cleaning lady to come over to correct the cleaning situation as soon as possible. I have been renting this cottage for many years and have never gotten a complaint about the cleaning situation until now. I apologize for the situation but tried to correct it as soon as I was notified. As for the seating situation, the small kitchen space limits the options for seating. The counter bar and stools are the only option for this cottage. There should have been 3 stools for seating around the bar. I will have my cleaning check on the number to make sure that none are missing or have been moved to the outside deck.

Great beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cottage just across from the beach. the view from the top deck is great. Super easy to cross the street because no traffic to speak of. Very comfortable & everything a person needs. my sister & I were there 7/6 for 4 nights. Convenient to grocery stores & dining out. Very relaxing & no huge crowds on the beach. Highly recommend. The only drawback is while inside... opening the blinds you see the other houses on each side however who goes to the beach to stay inside?!!!!. plus we had my sisters little dog with us & she loved it too. We will be back. Thank you Tammy for this very cute place.
