Beautiful February
5/5 stars
We have enjoyed our house stay at the Key Lime Cottage. It was a great mother daughter winter vacation. The worst is having to leave. House was immaculate and we wish we had more days to just sit and visit on the patio by the canal. Great place to stay. A lifetime memory for all of us. Definitely visit Sombrero Beach and other Keys.
- Alice

Alice thank you for the review! We are glad you and your daughter had a great winter vacation and that Key Lime Cottage is part of your lifetime memories. We hope to host you both again soon.

The way to go.
5/5 stars
We were entirely pleased with our three nights at the Key Lime Cottage. Duck Key is a beautiful escape, far enough to from US-1 that you are isolated from any noise. Situated on one of the many canals that transverse the island, a beautifully appointed covered patio overlooks the water and a strategically placed dip pool affords lovely vistas of the water as well as the first floor. The 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath unit is modern, clean with a fully outfitted kitchen. You are secluded yet close to the Highway for a trip to Islamorada and Marathon. We would highly recommend this property. 5-stars.
- William

Beautiful home
5/5 stars
Loved the house. Great location. Everything nearby. Great layout. All amenities included. Just a couple of suggestions: Would have preferred various fees were disclosed up front Smaller room had no storage. Please clean out rugs and giant grey storage bags in closet to create room. Suggestion to put a small dresser on the closet. Would have liked to be able to use bedroom patio, but there were no chairs!

More Key Lime, Please!
5/5 stars
We rented the Key Lime Cottage in early November 2021 - Overall the stay was excellent - a very nice property. Would recommend. Pros: Clean, modern townhouse, kitchen is more than adequate for an occasional vacation meal. Duck Key is a great location- many other popular keys both north and south within an hours drive, and if you must go to Key West, it is 1.5 hour drive. We enjoyed the little back porch - the "splash pool" is worthless for adults. Day of arrival instructions were outstanding- easy and concise Cons: Several lamps\lights did not work Next items are directed at itrip vacations: Insurance - one feels forced to accept their $199 charge for accident insurance, otherwise they put a $1,000 hold on your credit card - and who knows how soon that would be released, what condition would allow them to charge the card- none was disclosed. Additionally, we were charge $199 fee to VBRO, and did not book through VBRO - again, the charge was not disclosed. The property was terrific- book it!
- Tim

Thank you for your review Tim and we're glad your stay was excellent! We apologize about the lamp/light issue, we were able to resolve the issues to your satisfaction with a new bulb and instructions on the toggle switch. The optional limited damage waiver is $100.00 and the guest must chose that or the $1000.00 refundable security deposit, as we must protect the house and owner from damage. Your booking came through HomeAway (HomeAway and VRBO are owned by the same company), so the $199.00 VRBO fee is their booking fee. Thanks again and we hope to host you again soon!
