just gorgeous

We have had the most enjoyable holiday on Anna Maria Island, And It was made even better staying in the lovely key lime cottage, With its homely touches and personal paintings it was a good place to relax, It also has every amenity you need to have a good time, The use of two bikes was really good, We peddled all over the place to the lovely white beaches and other places and the use of beach towels came in handy .We also enjoyed the swimming pool, It's a good way to chill and cool off .

I could go on and on about key lime cottage and Anna Maria but I will just say go and experience them , You won't be disappointed.

Thank's Rob and Avril.

We will shortly be leaving for our second stay at Key Lime. If you look at the booking schedule, you will see that it nearly always booked up. There is a reason for this!! - it is a lovely property in a fantastic location. The bikes are especially good for getting around the Island. The beaches are as good as you get anywhere, and we can`t wait to get there again.

We have been to Anna Maria Island during Easter in 2011 & 2013 and both times we have chosen to stay at Key Lime Cottage. It is a really lovely cottage with everything you need and we are always sad to leave (even when heading off to Orlando). Our 10 year old daughter actually prefers Anna Maria to Orlando!

If you haven't been to Anna Maria Island before - you really must go. It is absolutely gorgeous and has a 'shabby chic' charm about it that we love. The quality of the beaches and restaurants is super. The early morning runs along the beach (or walks if you prefer) are great, you will definitely see dolphins followed by breakfast at one of the piers can't be beaten. Many Americans stop to ask us how we heard about Anna Maria as it is their 'secret' place to go!

The Owner's have decorated it to a lovely standard and can be trusted to ensure you get the keys, information, your deposit back and that everything is wonderful for your stay.

The pool is lovely and the cottage is well equipped with everything you need (including towels). The beds are super comfy. We are a family of 3 and this cottage is perfect for us.

On arriving you can stop off at the Publix supermarket (as you drive onto the island) to stock up. Although breakfast on the piers are great, lunch or cakes/ smoothies at Ginny & Jane's E are fab and dinner at the Sandbar cannot be beaten. Now you know why we run each morning!!

Anyone staying at Key Lime Cottage will have a super time and can rest assured that they are in safe hands.

We are just about to book our next visit.
