About Maria Williams

My husband Mark and I visited Umbria, Italy last Fall and fell in love with the relaxed village lifestyle. We were inspired to find a vacation home to share with others and enjoy with our own family. Gulfport has that same small community feeling but is still eccentric, fun, and vibrant.

Maria Williams purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Maria Williams chose St Petersburg

This bungalow was built in 1949 and it's charm and history is appealing but frankly we appreciate the modern updates as well.

What makes this bungalow unique

The best thing about this bungalow is that it is located in an amazing place but also has very easy access to other great places to see on the Florida coast.


Excellent! 4.7/5 -

Home Away from Home

  • 4 of 5

Key Lime Cottage is cozy, larger than it looks with a well equiped kitchen, comfortable beds, a big fenced in yard for our dog and all the things that make it a lovely vacation destination.

It is 10 minutes to town where we have enjoyed all sorts of entertainment.

Our weather has been perfect!! Many reasons for a return visit.

Jean and Steve at Keylime Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We've only been here a little over a week,but felt at home immediately.There is a rustic quality that doesn't make me afraid to mess up a little or clean up when I do.We have a PBGV dog that bring in seeds on his feet,so I have delegated one of the old washcloths we brought to getting them off the floor or rugs. Almost everything you need is here and,if not, there's a Dollar Tree and Aldi's nearby.There grill on the back patio is great and the backyard is roomy.There are 4 bikes in the garage and my dog runs alongside with a special leash I brought,so we go the few blocks to the dog park,where we meet friendly people and other friendly dogs.There is even another PBGV,which is a first! There is an extra bedroom,so when our friends from Buffalo came through on their way to Ft. Myers,we could have them stay.Had lunch and dinner at two of the many restaurants and saw the most beautiful sunset anyone had ever seen at Madiera Beach with my sister and a couple of her friends who live here. I could write a book,but that's enough for now,my husband is at the YMCA, working out and then we're heading to the beach.

Walking distance to downtown Gulfport

  • 4 of 5

Recently refurbished. Quite a bit of room and dining and living room. It was only 10-15 mins from beautiful gulf beaches and within walking distance to downtown Gulfport. Gulfport is great for casual dining art and unique little shops. Weekly farmers market . Flea market which was fun to visit and shop on weekends was only 30 mins away. Took a cruise to egmont island right from Gulfport. Property was very clean and wonderful customer service from owner and manager. We enjoyed our stay and our visiting family members did also.

Family Stay at Cozy Key Lime Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Key Lime Cottage over the Thanksgiving Break in November. We had an absolutely lovely time. Starting with the property - it's clear that there was love put into the house. The kitchen was updated and perfect for cooking a big Thanksgiving turkey. It was very well decorated, light and airy, colorful, full of neat accents. Our family felt as comfortable as if we were at home. The city of Gulfport is particularly charming. We enjoy a more relaxed, casual atmosphere, and Gulfport was perfectly suited to this. The small main street is cozy and lined with local businesses serving food and drinks. There were some artists’ studios and galleries amongst the other properties - making for a delightfully eclectic mix of business and pleasure. We took a day trip into St. Petersburg, which is about a 15-minute drive from the house. It was busier, and had great restaurants and a Salvador Dali museum that the kids didn't quite understand, but the wife and I really enjoyed. Another day we drove out to Treasure Island, where the kids enjoyed the sand (although the water was a tad too cold for a swim), and neat sand sculptures from a recent contest. Overall, the cottage was a wonderful home base for our trip. We always felt relaxed when we came back from a long day's adventure, and there was plenty of room for a family of four to spread out and enjoy some quiet time. We will definitely stay again if in the area!

To get away from the cold NY winter, my husband and I decided to stay at Key Lime cottage during the month of December. We totally enjoyed ourselves.

This was our first time vacationing on the West Coast and we wanted to stay someplace diferent.. We really enjoyed the town of Gulfport. It offers a wide selection of restaurantsm, great shopping and markets.

Key Lime Cottage is very close to the beach and the owners even provide bikes to take a nice ride.

The cottage is decorated beautifully and the kitchen is equipped with modern upgraded appliances. Bedrooms are airy and open and the beds were very comfortable.

This was a perfect vacation home for our stay and I plan to bring my daughter and grandchildern down next winter. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice, clean and comfortable place to relax by the beach.
