This beautiful timeshare is well maintained and right on the gulf beach. The sand on this beach is a fine, sugar white sand. It is the perfect vacation spot to relax and get away from the "rat race." Love it! We had a problem with our internet connection the first day but the management responded immediately and fixed a problem... More

We had an excellent week at Limetree Beach Resort. We own a timeshare here, and have been coming the same week since 2000. This year, despite the weather issues (Tropical Storm Colin), we had a lovely time. I do have a couple of complaints, being the horrific wifi connectivity (nonexistant), and no availability of the rental beach chairs/umbrellas. But, the... More

Beds are comfortable, kitchen is well appointed, AC works! The pool is lovely and the beach is AMAZING. Perfect for... More

The Limetree Beach Resort is simply one of the best kept secrets in all of Florida. It's situated right on a beautiful private beach with sand so soft it feels like powdered sugar. If you're lucky enough to be there when the sand bar is there you can literally spend hours walking up and down the beach, in waste deep... More

My family and I have been going to Lido Key since 1969. When the Lifetree was built and offered sales, we purchased a week. While the landscape, like that everywhere, has changed over the years, Lido Key still maintains a charm reminiscent of the earlier years we spent there. This has become a second home for us and is sure... More

We have been visiting The Limetree Beach Resort since the 1980's. My stepdad owned several units during Christmas vacation and we would visit. We fell in love with the resort and surrounding area at first arrival. The resort is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico. You can't get any better than that. The buildings are 2-3 stores high and... More

Having purchased units the first year they were available (1981), my family and I have been vacationing at the Limetree Beach Resort every year since. The facility and the management are both first class. It is true that about a year ago there was a change in management personnel. But that was simply the general manager retiring after 30 years...

My husband and I have been coming to the Limetree for the past few years. Most recently we visited in July. Limetree is timeshare condos but rentals are available throughout the year. We have always found the rooms, pool and grounds to be clean and well kept. The rooms we have stayed in have recently been updated. Kitchens are well... More
