Lime Tree Bay Resort
Spacious cottages serenely nestled among fruit trees.
True to its name, this resort lies amid fragrant key lime --- as well as banana and papaya --- trees. Hammocks, tiki huts and a sunning deck conspire to further a mood of serene seclusion. The resort prides itself on its friendly personal service. Most of the 46 rooms offer views of the ocean. The standard accommodations were renovated in 2002 and feature simple, light wood furniture and brightly colored bedspreads. Each of the suites and cottages is uniquely decorated and displays its own charming touches. The Hemingway Cottage, for example, showcases photos and memorabilia of the writer. It also contains a covered porch. The Treehouse Suite comes with its own sky-chair hammock. On-site are barbecue grills, a Jacuzzi, a tennis court and a gazebo. Fishing, snorkeling and diving can be enjoyed from the premises. Boats can be rented or moored at the 200-foot dock.
