Welcome home…

Jeff and I would like to welcome you to our Florida Keys home. We desire that your stay with us is memorable, relaxing, rejuvenating and enjoyable. Grab your sunglasses, flip-flops, and sunscreen and make your way to our beautiful heated pool. Don’t forget to make your favorite umbrella drink! It’s your time to slow down, relax and let the Keys’ mystique envelop and rejuvenate you. What we have is yours to enjoy…

Lemon Key Cottage is located on a deep water (12’) canal only 5 homes from the ocean. So, bring your boat and tie up to our 60’ lighted dock with electrical outlets. Our canal contains a variety of fish species especially bait fish like mullet and pilchards. Feel free to use the provided fishing poles to catch dinner off the dock. Use small hooks baited with shrimp or squid and fish under the dock or boats for some decent snappers. Throw a cast net and see what you catch. A lighted fish cleaning station is provided with a wash down hose. You can see the occasional predator fish at night around the dock. There’s a baitfish cage and bait freezer available. Snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding or flats fishing is accessible right at the end of the canal. If diving is your thing you'll find some of the best dive spots minutes from our dock. Occasionally, our canal is visited by Manatees, so be careful when operating watercraft.

The canal empties into the ocean through a flats area. Our flats are an amazing aquarium of ocean life. Do yourself a favor and take the two provided tandem kayaks through these waters to see a plethora of sea life. From our canal, you can reach the Gulf by taking Vaca Cut, which is less than a 5 minute boat ride.

We purchased Lemon Key Cottage in July of 2012. We made additions and renovations including; the heated pool with fiber optic night lights, landscaping and outdoor lighting, hurricane shutters, utility improvements, kitchen appliances, davit and dock improvements, 42” Flat panel TV, wireless high speed internet, 36” flat panel TV/DVD, and various cosmetic enhancements.

Unlike some other vacation rental homes, we decided to stock all the general necessities of home so that others can immediately start enjoying their vacation without running to the grocery store to buy toilet paper and hand soap.

The home is ~ 1500sq ft of central air conditioned living space with 2 bedrooms , 2 full baths, kitchen, living room, dining room, family room, laundry room, and a screen enclosed veranda. The kitchen is fully equipped including pots, pans, toaster, coffee maker, plates, silverware, the very important blender, and much more. Linen closet includes all bedding sheets/blankets, bath & pool towels. Many renters comment how much they enjoy our plush wall-to-wall carpeting as it's much more cozy and 'knee' friendly compared to cold, hard tile/marble floors. Should you wish to grill your catch of the day outdoors, there is a Weber Grill waiting for you master chefs.

Our neighbors are full time residents that you’ll enjoy meeting. Neighbor Paul is a commercial fisherman of lobsters and stone crab. Usually, you can watch him clean his catch each night at the dock. Neighbor Joe has his own television show on spear diving in the Florida Keys called “Speardivers”, which is now in its third season! You can imagine the seafood recipes that these guys have! Neighbor Cori is a marine biologist, and she can answer all your questions on marine life.

Wishing you an excellent vacation at Lemon Key Cottage.

Welcome home....

Our family resides on Catawba Island, Ohio, which is a small island on the western basin of Lake Erie. God blessed us with four children: Austin, Addison, Aidan, and Isabelle. I’m a school teacher and Jeff is a salesman of medical products.

Mary Jo Rospert purchased this house in 2012

Our family vacationed many years in Florida including the Keys. Having fallen in love with the Keys’ tropical treasures and recreational activities, we decided to make our claim (actually a mortgage!) in paradise.

Lemon Key Cottage is our sanctuary from the hustle of life. We truly come here to rejuvenate, relax, and unwind. There’s a certain mystique about the Keys…perhaps it’s the “come-as-you-are, don’t worry, be happy” attitude that everyone seems to enjoy. Whether it’s deep sea fishing for large Mahi Mahi or sipping on Rum Runners by the pool, there’s always something for everyone.

CANT WAIT TO GO BACK!

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect home and great location for a week in The owners stock their home with everything you need including a grill, fishing poles, and two tandem kayaks. We didn’t have a boat so we really enjoyed having the kayaks to make the short paddle down the canal to the ocean. The pool was amazing and where we spent most of our time. Sombrero Beach, great restaurants, and grocery stores are all within a 5 minute drive. This home has everything and then some, we will definitely be back!

EXCELLENT...JUST PERFECT !!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I vacationed at this home with our three kids in late April. It was our best vacation ever. My youngest daughter learned how to swim in the beautiful and warm pool. My son learned how to Kayak with his dad...they went out every day! We went to the local beach (Sombrorrow ?) for swimming and a picnic...kids loved it. After we put the kids to bed, My husband and I enjoyed the peaceful evenings on the veranda and in the pool. The house provided us with plenty of room and we used the extra trundle bed which was convenient. I would recommend this lovely home to anyone. Good location, quiet friendly neighbors, many activities, responsive owners, great views...it was just PERFECT !

VERY CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE. BEAUTIFUL POOL.

  • 5 of 5
We were only able to stay a couple of days on this trip, but are very anxious to schedule our next vacation in this clean and comfortable rental. All the amenities of home plus a beautiful pool right outside your back door. Sit and watch the boats enter and leave the canal while sipping your favorite drink. What more could you ask for!

P E R F E C T !!!

  • 5 of 5
This is a keys dream home that has a great set up for fishing, boating, kayaking, and snorkeling. We brought our 24' boat and went everywhere...we did spend much time in our truck. If you're looking for an elaborate home, then this is not for you. But, it's very practical, clean,good furniture and well maintained overall. The owners took time to tell us the great things to do in Marathon like visiting both Sombrerro and Bahia Honda beaches which were really nice. The evenings were especially peaceful, quiet and relaxing just as other reviewers said. This is an excellent home for the price. I will book again next year same time !

RELAXING VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This home has everything you need for a very relaxing vacation. It's very clean and spacious for a 2bdrm/2bath. We spent a lot of time on the outside porch, which was nice. My family (6 total) enjoyed the pool, when the weather cooperated... we really needed the heated pool as some days were in the 70s. We brought our boat and made it to the reef in just 15 minutes for some good snapper fishing. Overall the home is nicely furnished, good location, and well stocked. Will be back again when we come to the keys.

FUN, FUN, FUN UNDER THE SUN!

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful home! It's a perfect house for our family. The kids really enjoyed the pool and my wife enjoyed sun tanning. Usually, I have to drag my kids out of bed in the morning, but they were already in the pool before I was awake! They kids were amazed by the pool lights the first night. Great fishing, unforgettable eateries, friendly neighbors and one of the best locations in the Keys. Will rent again for sure!

Marathon is a beautiful city that offers the best of the Florida Keys while having all the nearby conveniences such as: grocery stores, pharmacies, hospital and emergency care, retailers, marinas, airport, movie theater, live entertainment bars/nightlife, parks, public beach and walking bridge, and excellent restaurants (most of which are dock-up ).

Marathon is surrounded by water: the ocean to the south and Gulf to the north. People come from all over the world to enjoy our warm waters colored in various shades of blue and turquois.

If you don’t have a boat, don’t worry. You can still enjoy the water by renting a boat, hire a fishing charter, or take a dinner cruise right here in Marathon. Or, make your way to the 7 Mile Bridge and walk along the old car bridge.

Some my family’s favorite restaurants in Marathon are: Franks Grill (Italian), Sunset Grill (seafood and sushi ocean side), Stouts (breakfast on our street !), Island Fish (near Holiday Inn bayside), Lazy Days (excellent food on water ocean side), Marathon Fish Company (on water 35th St. bayside), Castaways (15th st ocean side), and Burdines (great fries – 15th st. ocean side), Porkys (BBQ- bayside), and 7Mile (bayside by the bridge). Most of these restaurants are accessible by boat and have plenty of dock space. There are other restaurants that are excellent too, so just explore and you’ll find your favorites.

About the Southern Keys: Our home is a one hour drive from the beautiful and popular town of Key West; the southernmost outpost in the continental USA only 90 miles from Cuba.

If you have a day or evening available, take a ride south to one of our country’s top tourist destinations and enjoy a sunset in Mallory Square. You can see the cruise ships come and go, enjoy the live street entertainers in the square, or shop at the hundreds of retailers along Duval Street. Or, you can party away at Sloppy Joe’s, Hogs Breath Saloon, or Irish Kevins !

One relatively unknown restaurant/bar that my family likes to frequent is No Name Pub located on No Name Key. Just over the Seven Mile Bridge, turn right at the light in Big Pine Key and find your way to this little pub…the food is excellent and it’s worth the search. By the way, you will undoubtedly encounter endangered Key Deer along the path so drive carefully.

One of the nicest and largest beaches in the Keys is located on Bahia Honda State Park. It’s an excellent white sand beach that is nicely maintained. It’s located just over the 7 Mile Bridge about a 15 minute ride from the house.
