“Love, love, love the Lime Cottage!!!”
Well, where do I start? We absolutely loved out stay at the Lime Cottage. We felt immediately comfortable and at home upon arrival. Chris is an incredibly thoughtful and organized host. From not having to deal with keys to every amenity in the cottage you could possibly want in vacation getaway place. The whole place was very clean, decorated so well and created an extremely relaxing atmosphere. The beds were perfect and comfortable and everything worked! We thoroughly enjoyed making meals there and hanging out at the wonderful pool. We named the pool cleaner R2D2-14! Walking to the beach was a treat as is was so close. We enjoyed The Beach House Restaurant and Sharky's which are both walkable. The island is easy to get around and tends to relax you even more with it's built-in pace! We managed to play golf, go to a Hockey Game and take in a Baseball Game. Chris had plenty of maps and lots of information about the surrounding areas and activities to take in. No difficulties finding your way around. We managed to split the difference and spent a fair amount of time at the cottage as well away from it. By the time we came to the end of our stay, we all did not want to leave. We were quite comfy and could of easily stayed longer. On that note, I will say; we will definitely come back to this precious place. Chris and family, thank you for making this a wonderful experience Cheers Kellie & Bruce
“Fantastic Cottage! Perfect Holiday!”
We absolutely loved our stay at Lime Cottage. Every thing was just perfect for our family holiday. The cottage is beautifully decorated and just 2 blocks from the beach. The beach chairs, umbrellas, wagon and towels were included so no need to bring or rent anything. The pool was beautiful and the water heated so no problem to swim if the temperature was a little cool. The back yard is wonderfully landscaped and felt like a little tropical paradise. Our kids loved the bunk beds in their room and having their own TV and bathroom to use. The kitchen includes everything you would need, including chilled mugs in the freezer for cool drinks! Chris was wonderful to deal with and the booking process was smooth. He went out of his way to ensure every detail was provided and was always available if we had questions. We would recommend this rental without any hesitation and hope to return next year.
Nice location, sweet pool and Chris is an excellent person from whom to rent. Highly recommend this cottage to all.
Chris So takes care of everything! The cottage was equipped with everything you would need to enjoy your vacation. It was great that the beach was only two blocks away. Looking forward to going back and staying at the Lime Cottage.
“Just like being at home!”
My family had a wonderful time in the Lime Cottage! Check in was very easy as there are no keys to pick up, just go put in your code and you are in. This was also helpful when my husband and I went two different places, we didn't have to worry about who took the keys. The house has everything imaginable that you would need for your stay including sunscreen, towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, pool toys and fishing equipment. The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans, dishes, and some spices. Definitely check the cupboards before heading out shopping as you might not need as much as you think. Bedrooms were nice size and very comfortable to sleep in. The closets were full of extra blankets and pillows in case someone needs to sleep on the pull out sofa. Living area was very clean and comfortable. The pool stayed 90 Degrees the whole time we were there, and that was not even with the heater on. We thought the pool vacuum would be in the way when swimming since it runs during the day, but we never found it to be a problem. Our son (just turned 3) lived in the pool, he especially loved jumping off the bench in the deep end. The "hot tub" jets on the shallow end were nice after a long day out exploring. Very nice location not far from the beach, with restaurants within walking distance. We definitely recommend this as a place to stay, we already booked for 2 weeks next year!
“Lovely cottage, really nice pool, great owners, adds up to one g”
Owner Chris So was such a nice person to deal with. The cottage was very clean, well decorated, the beds comfortable, tvs in every room, and many necessities for our stay were provided. Really appreciated the beach wagon to take the beach chairs, cooler, beach towels, (which were all provided) to the beach. Wonderful place, just 2 short blocks to the beach, would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone.
“home away from home”
We couldn't have asked for a better vacation. Literally everything you could need/want is there from fishing poles, pool toys, beach chairs, cooking basics. All you need to do is bring your clothes and buy some food if you plan on cooking at the house. I really appreciated the touch keypad lock on the front door. No keys to keep track of while on the beach or out on an excursion. The kids really liked the beach themed bedroom and the fact that they had their own bathroom. I had no problems with the wifi and my daughter was ecstatic she could plug her ipod in too. The pool was awesome to come home to after being at the beach and the outside shower really came in handy too. I loved sitting by the pool watching the little lizards run around. We couldn't have asked for a better house or a better host. Chris was readily available when I had a question and was very accommodating to our needs. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again!!
We have been going to this area for the past 20 years, since our parents live in Longboat Key. This was our second stay at the Lime Cottage and once again we were delighted! Chris's sundance provided us with extraordinary weather . This little cottage has a "life of it's own". At every turn you will find Island reminders, from the starfish sink stopper to the pelican perched by the back fence. The beach is nearby and the pool a welcomed friend, always clean and comfortable. We have noticed how the nearby restaurants have greatly improved their menus and prices are reasonable. Of course, anything you cook in the Lime Kitchen comes out "perfect!". Our 20 year old son joined a local Gym for 35 dollars a week (a steal) and played tennis at the nearby tennis clubs. There are multiple things to do. In this hectic world we are living in, this tiny hideaway provides the "deprogramming" we all need. The Columbia restaurant in St. Armand's Circle was an excellent place to eat. We would suggest you call and make reservations, since it does, get very busy. Having been born in Cuba I am rather picky when eating in Cuban restaurants, since I am always partial to my own cooking,(tongue in cheek?) but the Columbia surprised us. One of the better items on the menu is " Palomilla"...ask that they bread it, which is the correct Cuban way of preparing it. You will not be disappointed. Philippi Creek is another outstanding eatery in Sarosota. It's about 15-20 minutes from the Cottage, but worth the ride. Their seafood combo and oyster sandwiches are amazing! The Lime Cottage is a real paradise home, with hidden Island reminders at every turn. Thank you Chris, Steph and girls for sharing your home with us. It is building wonderful memories for us, for years to come...:)
Our family had the best vacation of our lives at Lime Cottage. Our boys are 11, 7, and 4 and they could not get enough of the pool, the beach,the house, and the area restaurants! My husband and I were impressed with everything the house was equipped for. Everything we need to cook, play, relax, go to the beach... everything was thought of! The house has adorable decor and everything is clean and in good working order. The online pictures are an accurate reflection. The owner was more than helpful leading up to the trip and during the trip. Even though he is many miles away, he is a great area tour guide and goes to great lengths to make sure the stay is memorable and enjoyable. We can't wait to go back again!
This rental was absolutely amazing. The cottage had everything you could imagine. Very clean, well equipped and comfortable. The pool was relaxing and private. You will not be disappointed!
