Recent Grassy Key reviews

  • Love this property!

    "My husband and I have stayed here three times since 2012 -- In our opinion it's just about perfect. The property itself is beautiful -- watching the fish and seabirds right off the dock is both so interesting and restful. Steve's made sure the house has everything you need -- dishes, pots and pans, and a washer-dryer. All you need are groceries! Added to that, Marathon's central location is perfect for sightseeing throughout the keys. We made numerous day trips to Islamorada, Key West, and Big Pine Key. So much fun!"

  • Always a great place to great away from it all! Fishing and family fun!

    "I usually make the annual trip down to do some fishing down in the keys. Sometimes it's with family and at other times it's with friends. There's never been a disappointment with something for everyone to do. This residence has a deep water canal in the back yard which is only minutes to Vaca cut. If you are a Tarpon fisherman, Vaca Cut is the best place in the keys for the silver kings! Vaca Cut offers easy access to the back country as well as the Atlantic. There's also a snook light in the back yard with plenty of juvenile snook sitting in the shadows waiting for a tasty offering. The fish cleaning station is always clean and fully functional, ready to prepare the day's catch for the backyard grill. The back yard amenities are cozy and quiet. Plenty of seating, lounge chairs, tables and shade to bring you to your happy place. Inside the residence it is clean and comfortable. Linens are always fresh and clean as is the rest of the residence. Air Conditioning blows cold throughout the house. As far as the kitchen, all I've really used was the refrigerator and coffee pot, both of which look fairly new and clean. Speaking of appliances, there is a washer/dryer setup as well as a full size chest freezer for your week's catch. There is ample parking for a couple of vehicles as well as a boat trailer. Do yourself a favor and use the Cabana Club membership which comes with the rental. This is the highlight of the trip when I take the family down. The club has a manacured beach with waitress service, chaise lounges, bar, swimming pool, lunch menu, hot tub, tables, ect. It is a well maintained resort. The kids love it as do the wife and I. When speaking with the property owner, she has always been friendly and accommodating. She does whatever necessary to fill any special requests or address problems when they arise. In conclusion, I have stayed at one other place in KCB and it was more money for less value. Plus, the property owner was difficult to work with at the other location. Since I have found this unit, I will never even look for another unit again. Thanks again for all the wonderful stays!"

  • Simply Perfect!

    "My family had the best time at Key Lime Kottage in June. Our two teenagers and two toddlers had the best time in the pool and hot tub. We enjoyed kayaking from the dock to the mangroves and watching the juvenile fish and nurse sharks, parrot fish, and horseshoe crabs wonder around the dock. The sunsets from the dock were also incredible. The house had every single amenity we could ever ask for, and that's saying a lot since our family has such a range in ages/needs. There was a pack and play, high chair, and even a potty for the little kids. The beds were very comfortable, the house was very clean, the kitchen was well equipped, the TVs were awesome, and the games in the living room were an added bonus. There were bonus memory foam pillows in the master bedroom for those who don't like the soft fluffy pillows (like me). Our kids had a lot of fun feeding the iguanas (there were at least 6 wondering around at times). We took advice from others and went to The Wreck next store for lunch and dinner, and of course the famous key lime pie. I have to say that the pie has to be the best in the World! It's a must-try. The food was also very good, and the location of the restaurant was so convenient. If we had stayed at the house the entire vacation and not done anything, we still would have had the best time! A few things we do recommend doing are taking a boat tour with Family Fun Boat Tours in Islamorada. We took a four hour private boat trip with sightseeing and snorkeling, and it was awesome. All of the kids loved it, even the 2 and 4 year old got in the ocean for a little whiile when we snorkeled. Captain Kathy also watched the little kids for a time on the boat while we snorkeled. We also went to Key West for a day and recommend going to the Hemmingway house. We went to Sombrero Beach and Bahia Honda state park. The state park was excellent for little kids and snorkeling, but arrive early to get a good spot on the tiny beach. Overall, this was one of our favorite summer vacations, especially because we stayed at Key Lime Kottage! Thanks to Maria for answering all my questions and for sharing such an amazing property with us!"

  • Perfect Getaway

    "We recently stayed in unit 9 for one week, and loved every minute of it. The park that the units are located in is very well kept, and the residents definitely show pride in ownership. The beds were comfortable, the A/C worked very well, the kitchen was fully stocked, and best of all was the outside area. The landscaping is beautiful, and the birds plentiful! So many flowers! The patio was pretty private, and each unit has it's own gas grill for bar-b-que dinners. The units feature original artwork and hand crafted furniture, which was really cool. Hans and Lisa were there on the weekend, and were friendly and accommodating. The jetty is at the end of a picturesque, tree covered path, and it was one of my favorite things about this place. You can see a bunch of fish, horseshoe crabs, and even a small shark! It's the perfect place to go at the end of the day, to watch the sunset. The pool was very clean and the water was warm. I can't say enough about this place! The only bad thing was the noseeums. Not too many mosquitos, but the noseeums ate me up. I came up with a solution that I recommend to everyone: wear long sleeves, pants, and socks at night and in the morning. I brought a very light long sleeve button up blouse, and it kept them off of me, along with leggings and footie socks with sandals. Quite the sight, I know, but the park is so quiet that nobody really saw me. :) This little precautionary measure enabled me to take walks at night to star gaze. To be fair, noseeums are a problem pretty much anywhere in the Keys. Just dress for them. If the opportunity arises again-and I'm sure it will-I will definitely stay here. Grassy Key is close enough to Marathon that you have everything you need, and far enough away to be away from the crowds. Sombrero Beach is the perfect beach-not too crowded, shallow water that is crystal clear, and lots of trees at the South end for shade."
