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!

Maria Tabares purchased this house in 2011

Why Maria Tabares chose Central Florida Keys

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

KEY LIME KOTTAGE BEST IN THE KEYS

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd. year we have stayed in this beautiful, private and secluded property complete with gorgeous pool, hot tub, large screen TV all under cover in a spacious backyard. There is

a private dock, fish cleaning table, and chairs to watch the evening sunsets. This home is beautifully decorated and spacious for family fun or perfect for a girlfriends get away. There isn't anything the owners haven't thought of to make your stay relaxing and care free. There is only one place we would ever stay in Marathon and that is Key Lime Kottage. Trust me you will love it!

Great stay and even better accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Great location, wonderful accommodations, attention to detail, and wonderful hosts. Between the hot tub/pool and the waterfront view and access, we spent the majority of the time in the water. By far, the best VRBO home we have stayed in.

EXCEPTIONAL

  • 5 of 5

This home is truly exceptional, so much more than we expected. The landscaping is beautiful and with all of the trees and foliage, we felt tucked away in our own tropical paradise. The home is nicely updated and we absolutely loved looking at the paintings by artist Pam Hobbs. The kitchen has everything you would need to make whatever is on the menu. The bedrooms are large and the beds are very comfortable. The shower in the master bathroom has a gorgeous stone inlay that gives it a spa feel. Our favorite family spot at Key Lime Kottage, was the stunning pool and hot tub. We loved that it was enclosed and both the pool and hot tub has lights for night time use. The house also has a Weber grill, kayaks, bicycles, fishing pools and fishing gear, and a washer and dryer which is always a plus. Key Lime Kottage was perfect for our family because we were able to reconnect. The owners, Maria & Janet are fabulous to work with and we really appreciate their never ending commitment to making sure that we enjoy ourselves. We cannot wait to return next year!!!

Peaceful and Tranquil!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just 4 adults, we spent our son's 40th Birthday celebration at Key Lime Kottage. It is beautifully and comfortably appointed and spotless! Kitchen had all the things you needed to prepare a gourmet meal...even some complimentary spices and seasonings! We spent most our time together outdoors enjoying the pool and hot tub, grilling our meals as we watched a big screen tv or listened to music. Perfect place to get way and enjoy peaceful surroundings!

We sat on the dock and enjoyed picturesque sunsets. Plenty of nearby resturants to enjoy. Any we tried were the ones recommended by the owner, info provided for you and we were not disappointed. About 80 minutes to Key West but I must say other than the fishing charter we took out of Islemorada, we enjoyed just relaxing at "home". Definetely suitable for families with children as there are pool toys, bikes and kayaks to use as well as some fishing poles. Thank you to the Tabares family for providing such a wonderful, peaceful Island escape! P.S. we enjoyed all the pictures in the home that were painted by someone in your family!!!
