Lemon Key Cottage Welcome home… Thanks to Hurricane Irma, we now have a beautiful newly renovated home! We've spent over $180K on a complete restoration and modernization. (check out the new pics) Lemon Key Cottage is absolutely stunning with new: bathrooms, kitchen, appliances, flooring, windows, metal roof, doors, lanai and pool bathroom, landscaping, furniture, pool equipment, and much more. We LOVE the result! Everything is new, and it looks beautiful, bright, clean, cozy, and rejuvenating. We know you'll like the result too. Jeff and I would like to welcome you to our Florida Keys home. We desire that your stay with us is memorable, relaxing, rejuvenating and enjoyable. Grab your sunglasses, flip-flops, and sunscreen and make your way to our beautiful heated pool.

Grab your sunglasses, flip-flops, and sunscreen and make your way to our beautiful heated pool. Don’t forget to make your favorite umbrella drink! It’s your time to slow down, relax and let the Keys’ mystique envelop and rejuvenate you. What we have is yours to enjoy… Lemon Key Cottage is located on a deep water (12’) canal only 5 homes from the ocean. So, bring your boat and tie up to our 60’ lighted dock with electrical outlets. Our canal contains a variety of fish species especially bait fish like mullet and pilchards. Feel free to use the provided fishing poles to catch dinner off the dock. Use small hooks baited with shrimp or squid and fish under the dock or boats for some decent snappers. Throw a cast net and see what you catch. A lighted fish cleaning station is provided with a wash down hose. You can see the occasional predator fish at night around the dock. There’s a baitfish available. Snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding or flats fishing is accessible right at the end of the canal. If diving is your thing you'll find some of the best dive spots minutes from our dock. Occasionally, our canal is visited by Manatees, so be careful when operating watercraft. The canal empties into the ocean through a flats area. Our flats are an amazing aquarium of ocean life. Do yourself a favor and take the two provided tandem kayaks through these waters to see a plethora of sea life. From our canal, you can reach the Gulf by taking Vaca Cut, which is less than a 5 minute boat ride. We purchased Lemon Key Cottage in July of 2012. We made additions and renovations including; the heated pool with fiber optic night lights, landscaping and outdoor lighting, hurricane shutters, utility improvements, kitchen appliances, davit and dock improvements, 42” Flat panel TV, wireless high speed internet, 3- 36” flat panel TVs, and various cosmetic enhancements. Unlike some other vacation rental homes, we decided to stock all the general necessities of home so that others can immediately start enjoying their vacation without running to the grocery store to buy toilet paper and hand soap. The home is ~ 1500sq ft of central air conditioned living space with 2 bedrooms , 3 full baths, kitchen, living room, dining room, family room, laundry room, and a screen enclosed lanai. The kitchen is fully equipped including pots, pans, toaster, coffee maker, plates, silverware, the very important blender, and much more. Linen closet includes all bedding sheets/blankets, bath & pool towels. Many renters comment how much they enjoy our plush wall-to-wall carpeting in the bedrooms as it's much more cozy and 'knee' friendly compared to cold, hard tile/marble floors. Should you wish to grill your catch of the day outdoors, there is a Weber Grill waiting for you master chefs. Our neighbors are full time residents that you’ll enjoy meeting. Neighbor Paul is a commercial fisherman of lobsters and stone crab. Usually, you can watch him clean his catch each night at the dock. Paul's wife, Danielle, owns the floral store in town and caters weddings. Neighbor Freida owns a local hotel and dives frequently for lobsters on her free time. You can imagine the seafood recipes that these guys have! Neighbor Cori is a marine biologist, and she is working hard to preserve and build our coral reefs in the Keys. Wishing you an excellent vacation at Lemon Key Cottage. Welcome home.... Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: DWE5403781More

About the neighbourhood
Our family vacationed many years in Florida including the Keys. Having fallen in love with the Keys’ tropical treasures and recreational activities, we decided to make our claim (actually a mortgage!) in paradise. Lemon Key Cottage is our sanctuary from the hustle of life. We truly come here to rejuvenate, relax, and unwind. There’s a certain mystique about the Keys…perhaps it’s the “come-as-you-are, don’t worry, be happy” attitude that everyone seems to enjoy. Whether it’s deep sea fishing for large Mahi Mahi or sipping on Rum Runners by the pool, there’s always something for everyone.
Getting around
A car is essential to see the many treasures in the Keys. Lemon Key Cottage is perfectly located within Marathon so it's easy and fast to: beaches, movies, restaurants, dive shops, and other fun activities. But, our preferred method of transportation is boat. We choose Marathon because there are nearly 15 dock-up waterfront restaurants to visit. If you have a private plane, Lemon Key Cottage is located within walking distance from the terminal.
