The use of the Catalina 22 for experienced sailors is an awesome deal. My sailboat is on the hard side this experience has tied me over. The cottages are older but clean with outdoor space to grill and enjoy the simple life. The staff is excellent and helpful.

We've dreamed of sailing for 40+ years. We've taken classes, we've had lessons, but what we needed was time on the water. KLSC was perfect for us. The staff is kind and helpful, supportive of those who (like us) want confidence, but never condescending or hovering. They tell you what you need to know, including restaurant recommendations, and let you do your thing. In our case, that was 5+ hours on the water each day we were there, with terrific suggestions about how to go. We initially wondered if we had the skills to take the boat all day, and Captain Gary suggested a refresher lesson with Neil, who was outstanding. He gave us pointers and help when we needed it in a way that increased our sense of confidence and gave us the thumbs up. The bay was perfect for us: plenty of great places to go, but not crowded with other boats or people. Each day when we came back to port, Neil was there with the boat hook to help us moor at the dock. Then it was time to watch the sunset from the tiki hut, chatting with the other visitors and compare notes about our day's sail. We loved our time here. The cottages are clean and do not smell musty-- all freshly aired. they are modest. This is not a luxury resort. But the kitchen was well set up. There was just the two of us, but our cottage also contained bunk beds and a trundle-- a family of 5 could easily have stayed there. If you're looking for an unpretentious place where you can maximize your water sports, watch the sunset, eat good food, meet nice people from all over, and be looked after courteously and tactfully , then this is the place for you.

incredible value -- Priceless location and experience! Cabins are clean and well appointed. This is not the Ritz Carlton, but comfortable and incredibly fun. Staff is very helpful. Good restaurants nearby including walking distance. So cool to be able to paddle board/kayak to local bars/restaurants. Great experience! Oh...and my husband LOVED the sailing!!

We stayed here with our four adult children in August. We stayed in the main house, which was plenty big for all of us. I'm not quite sure how to describe the decor, but it was a fascinating combination of nautical, Chinese and Egyptian. The kitchen was well-equipped. The A/C was sufficient. The beds were comfy. And everything was clean and tidy when we got there. The staff was great. We got to know several of them over the week, and have nothing but nice things to say. At one point, the microwave malfunctioned, and the staff had a new microwave installed within hours. The private beach was small, but adequate for our needs, which essentially boils down to providing access to the water. We spent every night on the beach and at the tiki hut for the amazing sunsets and to socialize with our neighbors. We met some great people. We were impressed with the large amount of water toys that were available for us to use. Plenty of paddle boards, kayaks, snorkel sets. We never once had a problem getting the item we were after. The snorkeling around the docks was great. Plenty of sea life to investigate. It kept us busy all week. The only downsides that we can think of are that there were no fans available in the main house. (It's always nice to sleep with a fan.) And that there were no laundry facilities on the premises. But these are minor quibbles, compared to all the great positives that this place has to offer.

Clean comfortable fantastic location and the staff was friendly and very accommodating! Sailboat use was fantastic and a perfect area to sail. We stayed in the Captains Cottage the views were great, could sleep a lot of people if need be, they thought of everything as far as kitchen, baths, etc... also has inside and private outside shower. Free use of so many fun water toys and bikes. Walking distance to great restaurants, CVS, etc. No need to move the car. Rosie and G were great! We will be back!

My husband and I chose a trip to Key Lime for our 20th wedding anniversary. We wanted to stay in the US, complete our ASA 101, and have a great time. Key Lime and the American Sailing Academy on-site were the perfect combination for us. I read all the reviews and scoured the guest photos before booking, so we knew what to expect. Key Lime is not a 5-star resort but is a 5-star experience. The only way you wouldn't enjoy yourself here is if you arrived without doing your homework and were expecting something different. We stayed in the Captain’s Cottage, which had been updated since the photos on the website were taken. The cottage had a great water view and plenty of room to spread out. Yes, you do need to go around the bathtub to get to the kitchen dishes but that is part of the fun. The bed was extremely comfortable. When we go back this will be the cottage we request. We spent the first 2 days in sailing classes on-site. The sailing instruction we received was more than we could have hoped for and we will recommend Barnard and Captain G's sailing school to anyone. After passing our ASA class we had 3 days to ourselves to explore on our own with the Catalina 22' we were assigned. Sometimes challenging depending on wind, but always fun. At the end of a long day of sailing, we looked forward to going back to Key Lime to float or kayak then head to the tiki hut, chat with the other guests and watch the amazing sunset. Key Lime really is a one-of-a-kind place. It is fun, funky and laid back. You won't find anything else like it.

I have just returned home from a week at the KLSC where I completed my ASA 101 and 103 certication classes. I can not thank enough the KLSC staff and more importatnly my instructor Bernard for the knowledge gained, experience and laughs. I highly recommend the KLSC to anyone who has a desire to further enhance their sailing skills and experience!

We will be using Key Lime Sailing Club twice in December. We are staying at a nearby campground for 6 weeks, but booked Key Lime Sailing cottages for the week after Christmas so we could stay with all our kids that week. (We give travel instead of presents to our adult kids- more fun!) I also took the ASA 101 course with Barnard mid-December and he was AWESOME I have been on sail boats many, times with friends but never learned to sail myself and wanted to introduce our kids to how much fun it is - but do it safely. First let me say- I was not a natural.... I struggled with wind direction ... I mean I sucked, I was frustrated and annoyed with myself. But Barnard was patient and kept working with me and then I had a " a-ha" moment and realized I had it all reversed in my head. Then it all clicked and I stopped stressing and just had fun. I originally booked both 101 and 103, but realized I wasn't ready to tackle 103. I was lucky enough to be the only person in the 103 class and Capt G and Barnard were kind enough to adapt and I used that time to just sail and learn the area. I wouldn't have changed a thing. I know I got really lucky that it worked out but just getting to sail for a couple days and enjoy really added to my confidence. We had a variety of wind speeds to train under during that week from the dreaded 1 knot to 15 - and it was fun to adapt and keep learning. Barnard was an amazing teacher and super patient with me- but he's also just damn nice and funny. I contacted Capt G a month or so prior and he was very quick to get back with me and sent me my ASA101 and 103 books right away. All of the staff there are super nice and accommodating. I look forward to staying next week with the family, taking them out on a sail AND someday coming back and taking the 103 class. I can't imagine taking classes anywhere else now - I would somehow feel unfaithful to KLSC Having all the kayaks and SUP options is just an added plus for the week. The boats are in great condition and the property has it's own kind of Keys charm. Once you get past the variety of boats, ambulance and " UFO" at the front of the property you realize just how cool it is. I feel very lucky to get to stay there during this crazy 2020 year and ring in the new year with our kids

We loved our stay at Key Lime Sailing Club. Our room was larger than expected, and the kayaks, paddleboards were in great condition. The kids were pleased to see all the snorkel gear (also excellent and clean) and even tried on a wet suit. It was very nice that we could also take them to John Pennekamp. Your staff was great. Felt like home, so much better than a hotel. Great location for driving carious places in the keys. Thanks for letting us sail! We will remember that for a lifetime. We hope to return soon!

Came here with a friend that sails, I have a little experience, just for some covid R&R. What a fabulous time we had!!!! It happened there was no wind until the day we left but no problem! We kayaked every day and snorkeling, swimming and floating was perfect! And did I mention the sunsets????!!!! Drinks on the beach to watch the sunsets beyond gorgeous!!! Owner Paul was a great host and the staff very nice, friendly and professional.. they arranged for a sunset sail right from the dock. The cabins are quaint, unique, clean, comfy and have everything you need! Very covid safe!!! I cannot wait to back!!!!! Highly recommend !!!!!
