My husband and I were in dire need of a relaxing escape from a stressful past year and the winter cold. My father had stayed at the Key Lime Inn in the past, and when I told him we were thinking of the Keys he immediately told me to call the Key Lime Inn to book our stay. We booked the hotel with a very helpful Randy who put in a request for a secluded, romantic spot with available parking for our rental car. When confirming our reservation, Shannon was incredibly helpful in assisting us with making some last minute adjustments.
When we arrived, we entered the private parking lot and noticed the beautiful historic inn and the adjacent quaint cottages. Our fingers were crossed that we would be in one of those picturesque buildings and Randy had been so sweet to reassure us we would have a very special getaway. When we checked in, the staff greeted us with enthusiasm and informed us that we had the private cottage in the front that we were eyeing! We were very excited but we had arrived a little early for check-in. No worries because they pointed us in the direction of some great mojitos and our bike rental location and called us when our room was ready. We were elated when we opened the door to our cottage to find a beautifully appointed room with incredible light and french doors that opened up to our own private sitting area. The next 4 days were like heaven.
We would explore Key West on our bikes in the morning and come back to lounge in the afternoon at their incredible private pool that was surrounded by palm trees and plenty of lounge chairs. The other guests and staff became fast friends during those lazy afternoons. When we would go back to our rooms to refresh for the evening, our rooms were cleaned and put back to their original perfect state. It felt like our own private paradise and we have missed it every day since we have been back in the real world.
My husband and I have traveled all over the world and this is definitely become our favorite spot of all. Thank you for making our trip such a special one and we hope to be back living the Keys lifestyle (even only for a few days) again very soon!
