About Maria Tabares
Maria Tabares and Janet Bailey lived in Indiana and purchased this home as a rental property in 2011. They have decorated it and furnished it as if they had lived there themselves.They have purchased high end appliances, mattresses and linens. They are professionals who own other companies and know how important customer service is to everyone. They have since moved to Grassy Key and live one mile from Key Lime Kottage. They know how important customer service is and they want your experience to be top notch! They both grew up in Indiana so Hoosier Hospitality is very important to them!

Why Maria Tabares chose Marathon
This property caught our eye because there is alot of privacy in the back yard. You feel like you are engulfed in nature. You will be close to Marathon and alot of activities however when you are at the house you feel secluded and private.
What makes this House unique
The fact that this house is on such a private setting is what really appealed to us. On both sides no one can build a house because it is protected wetlands. Grassy Key is very laid back and quiet, yet we are an hour away from Key West where there is always something going on. Lots of shopping, great restaurants, bars and wonderful sunsets. We are less than 5 minutes from Marathon where you have two fairly large grocery stores, restaurants and bars. Lots of marinas where you can rent boats and lots of places to charter fishing trips. The unique feel of the Florida Keys is like no other place in the US. You will really be in paradise when you stay here!

Great Family Vacation
We had a wonderful time at Key Lime Kottage. The house was spotless and very comfortable for 2 adults and 3 teenagers. We really enjoyed the enclosed pool and spa. Every detail had been considered including the kayaks, pool floats and board games. The dock was great for launching the kayaks. The home is very quiet and secluded but close enough to other activities. We took day trips to Key Largo and Key West and this was a great midway point for that. I would mention that we had no rain all week and the no-see ums were awful. This has little to do with the property but would definitely pick up some extra bug spray or citronella to ward them away. We would definitely stay again without hesitation. Maria was very responsive.
So glad you loved Key Lime! Please come back and see us again!
Very comfortable home
Home was perfect for 6 adults, or would be for family with children. We loved how private the property is. We enjoyed the kayaks, bikes, and the screened pool was our favorite spot! Home owner gave clear details of what to expect, and included local sites of interest. Our family had a wonderful vacation. Thank you so much!
Thank you for choosing Key Lime Kottage! So glad you had a wonderful time. Please come and see us again.
Beautiful property & amenities provided by the owners.
We could not have asked for a more beautiful property to stay at than Key Lime Kottage. The property has a very private setting & provides the renter with a very well kept, comfortable, clean, neat, & organized home that you can tell is well maintained by the owners. The owners have provided all the essentials you need to enjoy whatever type of vacation you are looking for. Whether you chose to dine at the home (fully functional kitchen & outdoor grill) or bring take out back to enjoy. Every room has its own flat screen tv as well as the outdoor pool area. The pool & its enclosure area is generous in size & was used quite a bit. Also, the dock provides the perfect setting to watch the perfect sunset over the gulf. Should the opportunity arise, I would not hesitate to stay here again. It was the perfect home for us to stay at for our week in the Keys.
Thank you and we are very happy that you loved the property. Please come and see us again!
Absolutely loved this home!! Wish I could give 6 stars, it is that wonderful!! From the minute you drive up and walk through the door, you know that this is a home away from home. Maria is such a gracious host and has thought of everything that you may need. The kitchen is very well stocked and was a delight to cook in. The beds are so comfortable. Best nights sleep I have had in a long time. Then, the outside area is unbelievable! The pool area is covered and huge! Water was so warm and we watched tv while swimming. There are bikes, kayaks, fishing equipment in the garage. Make sure you kayak over and say hi to the dolphins next door! Thank you Maria for making us feel so at home. Many long term family memories were made!!!
Dear Roger and Mary,
Thank you for the kind words!! It’s great to know that you enjoyed Key Lime Kottage so much! Thank you for your patronage. Hoping to see you again soon! Maria
Second time better than first time
We stayed at the Key Lime Kottage last year and liked it so much that we came back again and absolutely no regrets. The warm pool and the hot tub were very well used and appreciated during a sunny week. Recommend it strongly for anybody looking for a completely secluded and relaxing location
Dear Bengt and Luanne
So glad that you came back to visit and glad that you enjoyed your time so much.
Please come and see us again.
Planning our return already..........
"This is the best place ever," declared our seven-year old daughter as she hopped in the pool. Looking around, my husband and I had to agree.
We planned to visit the Florida Keys during our daughter's winter break to belatedly celebrate a milestone birthday for my husband. We last visited five years ago and always knew we'd return. Now that we found Key Lime Kottage, we hope to return many more times.
We were impressed from the moment we pulled into the driveway, which is beautifully maintained with palms, oleander, red ixora, and other flowering plants. Once inside, everything was just as depicted on the website, if not better. The home is very clean, maintained with pride, and tastefully decorated. Bedding and pillows were very comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped, and the garage was stocked with kayaks, bicycles, and pool toys.
Of course, the real highlight of this property is the large private back yard, flanked on both sides by thick mangroves. We found it hard to tear ourselves away from the pool and hot tub, but we did so every evening without fail to enjoy one stunning sunset after another from the private deck.
We visited several area highlights, including the Turtle Hospital and the Dolphin Research Center. We also spotted deer on Big Pine/No Name Key and visited several beaches. Key Lime Kottage's location is a perfect place from which to see much of what the Keys have to offer. We can't wait to return.
It was a real pleasure to meet you and your family. It makes us so happy to see how much you have enjoyed Key Lime Kottage! Please do come back and see us again.
We are just 5 minutes away from Marathon. Marathon has lots of restaurants, Sombrero Beach, Curry Hammock State park and Bahia Honda beach. There are bike/walking trails too. There is a Publix and Wynn Dixie to go grocery shopping. The Dolphin Research Center is 3 doors down from the house and THE WRECK BAR & GRILL is next door to our home as well. The Turtle Hospital is another wonderful place to take the kids.
