Lobster Seasons:

Please go to: floridalobstering for dates (Holiday rates apply)

Rates are per night for double occupancy or family with kids. Extra adults will be charged $35 per night if allowed on a case-by-case basis. We try to limit each of our cottages to 2 adults, or 2 adults with 2 to 5 kids, depending on the cottage, for the serenity of all our guests. We have a minimum of 5 nights/6 days booking, we accept 2 to 4 night stays if available between 2 bookings. Please contact us for availability. Adult kids less than 21 years old are free, 21 years old and above will be considered as paying extra adults.

All cottages are non-smoking inside, but guests can smoke outside the cottages or at the Tiki Hut.

Booking Deposit:

When we receive your request to book and send a confirmation, a deposit of 50% of the total booking amount is required to guarantee your reservation. The deposit will be applied toward the total payment for your cottage. The balance is due 45 days prior to your arrival date. 

The cottage will be held allowing 7 days for us to receive your 50% deposit via check or credit card. If paying by check, please make it payable to:

Key Lime Sailing Club
101425 Overseas Hwy. # 922
Key Largo, FL 33037

We accept personal /cashier’s checks, money orders, and credit cards. On case to case basis, we allow wire transfers and banking info will be sent to your email. Once we receive your deposit we will send you a confirmation email, invoice, and driving directions. The remaining balance is due 45 days prior to your arrival.

Note: We accept credit cards for payments in full at time of reservations or balances due 45 days prior to arrival.
There is a $35 credit card handling fee.
Credit card numbers are taken over the phone.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.

Dog Policy:

We are a dog friendly resort and have reserved three very nice cottages for guests with dogs.

There is a limit of one dog, or two small dogs, per cottage, and the total weight must not exceed 50 lbs.

Dogs are the only pets we allow.

NOTE:  Dogs are not allowed on any sailboats. However, they are allowed on the kayaks, paddle boards, and canoes.  Thank you for understanding.

Below is a list of breeds we do not permit on our resort.

  • Akitas
  • Alaskan Malamutes
  • Chows
  • Doberman Pinschers
  • German Shepards
  • Mastiffs
  • Pit Bulls
  • Rottweilers
  • Siberian Huskies
  • Bernards
  • Wolf Hybrids
  • Or a mix of any of the above

In consideration of the next guests, we do a complete tear down, remove, clean, and replace process in the cottage after each guest with a dog. Therefore, we charge an additional pet fee of $35 per night per dog. Payment for any damages caused by the dog will be the responsibility of the person who reserved the cottage and will be charged to the credit card on file.

IMPORTANT: If you arrive with a dog on check in day for a cottage that is not dog friendly, we will see if we have a dog friendly cottage available.  If one is available, the dog fee plus tax will be charged to the credit card on file, or you may pay with cash, and you will be given a dog policy to sign.  If we don’t have one available, one option would be to board the dog in one of the pet motels in Key Largo at your expense. Another option would be to find another place that allows dogs, however, you will not get a refund for the cottage.

It is a crime under Florida law  to represent a dog as a service animal if it is, in fact, not a trained service animal. Emotional support animals are not service animals and are not covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Sailboat Policy:

For your enjoyment and to get the full benefit of an adventurous, rejuvenating, and relaxing vacation, we set our minimum reservation length for 5 nights. However, by popular request, we do accept shorter stays.  Please call reservations for availability.

For stays of two or more nights, we assign a 22′ sailboat to our qualified sailing guests the morning after arrival at the 9 AM boat orientation at the Tiki Hut.

On occasion, we have requests to have a boat assigned prior to the 3 pm designated check in. In this situation, we will charge a fee equivalent to one night’s current cottage rate. If the cottage is unoccupied and ready, guests will also be able to check in to their cottage early.

Please note the following.
The United States Coast Guard informally assigns the designation to boats with a total length of less than 33 feet (10 m) as a “small craft”.

The size of the boat is only part of what a person should consider when venturing out when Small Craft warnings are in effect. Weight, displacement and hull design are important factors and an even more important consideration is not only the craft, but the experience of the captain. All of our guest captains at Key Lime Lime Sailing Club are not equal in their sailing abilities, therefore we must observe the following no sail criteria based on our boats and our location.

We do not sail the 22′ Catalina’s when a Small Craft Exercise Caution/ Small Craft Advisories are in effect.

As seen at: https://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/data/Forecasts/FZUS52.KKEY.html

Small craft advisories are issued when sustained wind speeds of 20 kts for 2 hours or more are forecast.

Paul loves to sail, as well as being the owner of Key Lime Sailing Club & Cottages and we as the crew do our best to ensure that every guest gets to safely experience sailing on the Florida Bay / Everglades. But at times weather (and our insurance company) plays a part in our ability to safely let our guests off the dock and go sailing.

Cancellation Policy: (Please read before making a reservation)

We are not a large chain resort/hotel. We simply have a few cottages that are booked well in advance. Once we reserve a cottage for you, we may have to turn away others that inquire about the same dates. We have adopted the policies below to be fair for both our guests and our facility.

Deadline for cancellation: 45 days prior to arrival date.

Cancellation / Refund:

Cancellation before the Deadline: Amount paid, less a 15% cancellation fee, plus the cost of one night’s stay.

Cancellation after the deadline: Amount paid, less a 15% cancellation fee, plus the cost of one night’s stay, only if we can re-rent the cottage for all the dates of your reservation. If it is not re-rented, there is no refund.

There will be NO refunds for early departures or late check-ins as we will not be able to re-rent the cottage on such short notice. NO Exceptions.

Deadline to Reschedule:

We may have turned away other who inquired about the same dates, therefore, the same deadlines as for cancellations apply. Please make sure the dates provided are correct as you only get one chance to reschedule.

Named Storms:

If a named storm affects Key Largo, you can opt for the amount paid refunded in full, or you can reschedule your vacation using the same payment. If you choose to reschedule, please make sure the dates you provide are correct as we can only do one reschedule.

All cancellations must be sent via email to keylimesailclub@aol.com.  Once we receive your timely cancellation, your refund will be processed and sent within 60 days of the cancellation request date. You must receive our acknowledgment of cancellation via email for your reservation to be confirmed canceled and the refund process to begin. It is your responsibility to ensure that we receive your cancellation notice.
