Key Lime Cottage is the best

  • 5 of 5

Since we arrived at Key Lime Cottage everything was perfect, clean and well maintained. The manager was very easy to deal with and answered all of our questions. We would definitely recommend this home.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Our family went for a week for Christmas and it was wonderful. The photos are accurate and the house is well appointed. The beach is fantastic and can be seen from the front porch (it is a 30 second walk down the driveway to get to it). The beach itself is very calm and clear. As the island itself is sparsely populated the beach is never very crowded (all beaches on the island are considered "public"). The rental agents and owner were very helpful in getting us set up. The only thing that didn't work was the phone and wifi because of some wider area problem. But .. it didn't really matter because we were at the beach the whole time anyway.

Rainbow Bay

  • 4 of 5

Key Lime cottage is located perfectly on the island and the photographs of the house are accurate. The property is clean and well maintained. Sit on the front porch at night and listen to the waves crashing on the Atlantic side of the island. The beach is just a quick stroll right out the front door, beach is great (recommend water shoes due to some rocks), beach was often empty especially in the mornings so grab a picnic table, mini-palapa and claim your space on the beach. I only had one need (hair dryer) which was delivered the next day. All amenities worked and it was nice to go home with clean clothes. Don't try and visit Eleuthera without a vehicle, besides there is just too much to explore. Management gave an excellent referral and I was picked up at the airport. In the end, I really enjoyed the location of Key Lime cottage relative to the rest of the island. All emails before, during and after were very prompt, management gave an excellent overview/info on the island, the pricing was reasonable and I would recommend this property. Thanks to Kristin and Tara for all their help and follow ups!

Great beach stay!!

We needed an extra house for my large family and this rental was perfect! It was walking distance to one of our favorite beaches, Rainbow beach, and was cute and comfortable inside.

Great house in a super area

  • 5 of 5

House is very clean and well appointed with all the extra amenities you'll need. Loved the location in the center of the island so you can jump to either end easily. They had a guidebook at the house with information on all the beaches. We used that every day to find some hidden locales. Had a fantastic time with beautiful surroundings and lovely people. And, the Stubbs do have great BBQ!! They stopped in to make sure we had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend this area and home to anyone.
