Thank you so much for your review, I love it when guests get it, and you hit the nail on the head - laid back, unpretentious and enervating; you've provided the perfect words on how we'd like to describe the inn. No amount of hype can say what you've said with three simple adjectives. Thank you, thank you, thank you....

Went for a short getaway with the kids and found a great break from the chain hotels. The kids had a fun time exploring the unique grounds and enjoyed eating in the garden area. It was so convenient to be steps from the beautiful beach with chairs, umbrellas and bikes free for guests to use. The suite was very clean...

Thank you so much Maria, we loved having you here, and we're so happy the kids enjoyed it too. It proves that it doesn't have to be a theme park to make it special. We're looking forward to your return. Have a great 2014!

Just loved my stay at The Desoto--the beautiful gardens, the gorgeous beach, and the friendly atmosphere. Quiet and serene, yet walking distance to a couple of fun casual seafood restaurants and pubs with music. Bicycles are provided. The beach was pristine, uncrowded, and had a lifeguard during the day. I hope I can come back next year! --Pam, Okinawa, Japan

we spent three glorious days and nights here reveling in the homey wonderland our hosts have created. it's the un-hotel - more like visiting favorite relatives with lots of space. besides being spotlessly clean, the little things - the bamboo sheets, the soft, medium and firm pillows, the vintage furnishings, plush towels, the fun and tasteful non-generic dishes and artwork...

The Desoto is a home away from home. with Its lush Florida-Native gardens less than 1/2 block from the Atlantic Ocean and it's exceptionally clean, warm, friendly accommodations (this includes rooms, Steve, and Josias) allows me to relax and rejuvenate before returning home.
