The Key Lime Sailing Club in Key Largo, Florida strives for a funky, Florida Keys experience. I asked my traveling partner if the Jungle Room where we stayed was the worst public accommodation that she ever experienced. She thought for a moment and said that it wasn't necessarily the worst (air conditioner didn't work, cramped bathroom with missing tiles in the shower stall, no convenient place to plug in the coffee pot, an elevated bed that required a leap for a short person, multiple plug-ins at an electrical outlet that gives you cause for concern, missing smoke alarm, etc.). She said that the Jungle Room wasn't necessarily the worse public accommodation in her experience, but it was down at the bottom of the list along with a 2 Star hotel in Paris that had a condom machine in the hall immediately outside her room's door and a bullet hole in the room's window facing the street. More on the Key Lime Sailing Club. It is nearly impossible to find the entrance to this facility at night. The driveway is flanked by rusting equipment and abandoned marine salvage. Without exaggeration, the entrance to the Key Lime Sailing Club gives all the appearance of entering a marine salvage yard. There are no signs on the main highway that give a hint to the entrance to the club. Continuing down the driveway you pass small cottages and a large RV. On the left is a two story building with a handwritten sign: "Office." The Office was poorly attended on a number of visits seeking assistance from the staff. The Key Lime Sailing Club offers small sailboats for instructions and sailing. One sailing instructor was unhelpful on two occasions when I indicated I needed assistance.
I am reluctant to give any business a bad review. People are trying to make a living and generally trying to do their best. The Jungle Room was a huge disappointment, but there is a so-called Main House that may have better accommodations. But on whole, my experience at the Key Lime Sailing Club was so disappointing that it only seems appropriate to advise future visitors and the management of the problems that I experienced.

We have visited twice, with just my wife and me for couple nights, and for more days with our adult children in late teens and early twenties. We like to be active, sailing, kayaking, and knocking about. This is the place to do it. Included in affordable rates are all the boats on their waterfront, which includes Catalina sailboat, Hobie cats, sunfish, kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, etc. Comfortable surroundings, clean neatly appointed cottages, with kitchen if you want to cook in (and grills, etc if you want to cook out!). Plenty of room for sailing, back waters to explore. Owner very accommodating and helpful if weather prevents sailing.

Avoid this too good to be true trap. The ad in Sailing Magazine hooked us. We wanted a sailing fix and who could resist a sail boat with your room. We should have!

We booked a cabin on the beach for 5 days in July and only 4 days in August because the cabin we chose was fully booked except for those 4 days.

We arrived to find the window type AC unable to keep the cottage cool, leading to a sleepless night in the Florida heat of mid¬summer. The next day, we were moved to a cabin which was the largest but farthest from the water. It should be noted that cabins are NOT CLEANED at all during the entire length of your stay.

The sailboat, part of the rental package, was a 70’s Catalina 22, a great boat if maintained, but like all boats we saw had been hopelessly neglected. In fact, they were disgusting. We learned that less than half the fleet have furling head sails. After casting off for our first “Sailing Fix”, the keel winch became jammed and the first day’s sail was cut short. A different boat the next day, but the keel winch broke in a down position and the kick¬up rudder would not stay engaged in a down position. Another busted sail day, but with the promise of a fix for the next day. When the fix was not even attempted, we cut short our vacation from hell and came home a day early. Our disappointment made obvious by the lack of attention and maintenance to the fleet was prevalent and evident throughout the property.

In view of our unacceptable and unsatisfactory experience, we cancelled our August reservation and asked that our $500 deposit be returned. Since we had chosen the most popular, solidly booked cabin, their ability to re-rent it seemed quite certain. In any case, the management agreed both verbally and in writing that a refund check would be sent. But like “the check is in the mail”, it never arrived despite our repeated requests and their assurances. After 6 weeks of empty promises, we gave up. We now better understand why Key Lime discourages the use of credit cards by assessing customers a charge of $35 to use one. Having your credit card company fight for your refund increases your chance of actually receiving it
.
The lane leading into the “resort” is a graveyard of derelict boats and junky objects providing an omen of things to come. We ignored the obvious and paid for it both financially and in a vacation ruined.

If SERIOUS NEGLECT is your thing, you will love it here.

My husband and I tried to stay at this property five years ago when Florida was hit with four hurricanes. This year we finally made it during Memorial Weekend. Ok, yes, the traffic was crazy and there was a lot of boat traffic as well. We live on a sailboat in Jacksonville and have always wanted to sail in the Keys, just don't have the time to get our big girl down. Let's be real...the place is old Florida, cinderblock houses, simple, but darling. Our room had lots of faux art on the walls, an alligator and palm trees well done. Quite sweet. The air conditoner was cranking when we got there and there was a refrigerator. What more do you want,? On the bay side, beautiful sunsets...kayaks for exploring, darling little 22 foot sailboats for the day...plenty of safety equipment on board. The grills worked, Publix and Winn Dixie close by for fresh groceries. We enjoyed the hammocks, the tiki hut (on the water). If you have little ones, keep shoes or water shoes on them as well as a life vest. Paul, the manager/owner was quite accomodating and charming. We plan to go back ASAP!!! Just don't be silly and think it's the RITZ...it's some ways it's far better and relaxing in the simplest way.

Kitschy & low-key but CLEARLY one of Key Largo's best kept secrets! This place has it all - very friendly staff, adorable cottages with all that you need, and best of all - it's own Tiki Hut on the water, its own piers, it's own little beach, it's own place to enjoy the water. KLSCC has kayaks, SUP's, small boats, it's own sailboats (if you know how to sail - & LESSONS if you don't!) plus they have TONS of snorkel gear to take out and have fun floating around the sound!

The cottages have plenty of room and beds for all - plus their own mini-kitchens to cook and store food if you want. A/C was kicking, too! We stayed in the Manatee and the Mermaid Cottages - SO adorable! Key Lime SCC is also located literally next door to Mrs. Mac's Kitchen (the original) where you can get some yummy mahi mahi or coconut shrimp. It's literally a 2 min walk to the CVS and located smack dab near anything you want - to John Pennekamp state park, parasailing, snorkel tours, etc.

We had SO much fun, just playing cards at the Tiki Hut every nite, or watching the sunset. KLSCC also did a sunset cruise on their catamaran (FREE!) and it was AMAZING! We even got to see a manatee mama and her baby who came right up to the docks (at night) - talk about THE BEST! We took the SUP's out nearly every day (first come first serve, but we never had a problem with everyone there getting what they wanted). Went out to the mangroves. Paddled past some of the local bars just feet away where we could actually be on the water and hear some music.

If you want Five-Star, go somewhere else - if you want the KEY LARGO, ISLAND-TIME EXPERIENCE, THIS IS IT! Cannot wait to go back! Thank you owners, Theresa & Paul, for an awesome time!
