“Another AWESOME vacation, we'll be back!”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

Key Lime is the best "find" my husband and I have ever stumbled upon. You're as removed from society as you choose... you can plan to never leave the property, but fun attractions are right down the road.
The cottages are rustic but VERY comfortable. We have done both a "honeymoon" trip with just the two of us, and this past trip included our 2 boys (13 and 8) They never wanted to leave the property!
The owners and staff are more than accommodating, and you feel like family from the minute you check in. There is always someone around to help you with water toys, give you advice on attractions or just hang out and tell stories.
KLSC rates include so much: the cottages with kitchen (stocked with fridge, utensils, pots, pans, coffee maker, etc) a sailboat for each day you're there, stand up paddle boards, kayaks, masks/fins/snorkels, sunish, sunset cruises, tiki hut and grills.. the list goes on. We even brought out boat down this time and they had a slip for us at on one of the docks the entire time.

I can not say enough about Key Lime or the amazing people who run it. I appreciate what they do and look forward to coming back year after year.

My family and friends stayed at KLSC for 3 days .and 4 nights. We got there Friday evening April 26 and left around lunchtime of Tuesday April 30, 2013. From the time we got there our experience was beyond great. Excellent staff!! Very accommodating and friendly, The place we stayed was very clean and homey as if I want to live there. The amenities, equipment and activities was way beyond my expectations. The Sunset Sailing Cruise was one of a kind experience , The panoramic view and a photography bonanza was another added bonus of the trip. I intend to share with my friends and colleagues this experience which was Beyond Great! Quoting Gen. MCarthur of WWII fame " I Shall Return" plus with a vengeance!!! Right!

Room Tip: Talk to Mayette. She can handle your needs!

First, try to find the Key Lime Sailing Club....If you are looking for the location DON'T expect a cute quaint group of Cottages with a old Key West style sign expect to look for a BOAT JUNK YARD and if you come in the dark GOOD LUCK since they move the mailbox in at night with the only address on it. Second, the accomadations WOW what can one say...an outside shower that is so scarey I would not wash my dog in it. Oh and speaking of dogs (I have two service dogs ) the advertisement states DOG FRIENDLY ~ but as soon as we arrived the management asked us to leave with YES licensed by the state insured for 1 million each service dogs. Oh and do not expect a refund after they ask you to leave (Denying a service dog is a Civil Crime of the Federal ADA laws, and a Criminal Crime under Florida State laws. Penalties can be compounded) Yes we had to call our lawyer to stay...CRAZY. A hygiene issue was in the bathroom sign posted stated not to put anything in the toilet to throw it into the waste basket...yes gross. I had to kill many a cock roaches every morning and the A/C unit barely kept the bedroom cool. please have a look at the pictures if you do not believe my words. What we liked best about this Key West Dump was that we could escape by sailing away on one of there 22 ft sailboats.

We absolutely LOVE KLSC! We have stayed there twice so far and plan to go back for many visits to come. The staff is always willing to help you with your needs. It is a sailing rental, so if you want to sail the days away and want a nice, clean place to stay at night, it is perfect. The captains will help you plot your day voyage to get the most out of your stay, recommending plenty of day sail trips around the keys. It is very quiet and peaceful. You can use any of their kayaks and paddle boards as well, and they have snorkel stuff you can use if you don't want to bring it with you OR if you lose a part of your gear :o) Sometimes manatee come up to the dock and it is so amazing to sit and watch them swim around the dock. Publix is just down the street so you can either eat out and nearby restaurants, or like we did...cook a simple meal from your cottage. The staff will tell you where to buy the cheapest ice too! We love the cute little cottages and even the (covered and private) outdoor showers are great! I can't say enough about the KLSC. We love it and have many memories sailing out of there with our daughter, kayaking around manatee, and paddle boarding. The owner, Paul, even took us out on his private cat for a sunset sail. Awesome place...

Room Tip: I can't really comment on kids activities...our kid (teenager) loves to be outside and is perfec...

This is not the hilton by any stretch of the imagination but then again, i was not looking to stay at a hilton. We stayed at the Owner's Cottage which was perfect for a family of 3. Loved the private deck and bbq, 2 bedrooms, full size fridge in the kitchen + they provide you with coolers for your use on day trips, and space to move around. The use of a sailboat and equipment made things so much easier. Dave was incredibly awesome in helping us and was always on top of things.
So you know you had a good time when:
- you get to be a total bum and nobody cares what you look like including you
- your kid lets you sleep in in the morning and says "good morning mom, i'm going outside to play. have a good sleep" and it's okay because it's safe to do that and everyone staying there knows who your child is, including the other vacationers so everyone is watching out for everyone else's kids
- your kid comes in dirty and happy after dark and passes out for the night without complaints
- you get to read a book from front to back without interruptions...which in my case has not been possible for the last 4 years!
- every sunset is beautiful, the weather is perfect, and when you take a paddle board out at dusk, you are treated to the sight of dolphins
- you can throw all your crap on their sailboat and disappear for the whole day without a care in the world
- giant iguanas walk across the beach like squirrels cross the road
- starbucks is a short walk away, the grocery store is too, and amazing snorkelling can be found on site as well as just up the road

this is a great place to relax because it's so laid back. people are friendly but not in-your-face-friendly so there's never a feeling that you "have to" socialize. it's private but not isolated, it's safe for kids, it's small but not crowded, it's a great little pocket. we would definitely go back again.

Room Tip: we stayed at the captain's cottage and the owner's cottage...they are side by side. owner...

Everything was as expected and very good and recommendable. We stayed at the main house and it is a very nice place in general. The refrigerator had an extremely bad fish smell. Might better use a cooler and ice insteadinstead. Visitors should better know that due to local sewer restrictions they are asked to discard all toilet paper in a bag, not in the toilet itself.

We just got back from our second week stay. It is soooo..... keysian-funky,relaxed and a rare opportunity to rent a sailboat and get a cottage too. There's a great city park close by for a walk. We'll be going back again next year. There are other longer beaches at nearby state parks. As someone else mentioned there is a fish market nearby. The absolutely best key lime pie in the universe. The local hogfish and yellowtail were incredible grilled on foil in butter, lime and cilantro. We saw dolphins on three separate days during our second stay. The first time we had a truly magical experience with the dolphins. It was a group of at least 50 and as we sailed back and forth thru the group they would swim towards the bow and then do a quick turn around to sail with us. This went on for 45 minutes. One of our best animal encounters ever. This year we saw the dolphins but they didn't interact with us at all but still made our day. Happy Sailing.
