We stayed in "The Boat House" and the panoramic window view form where the bed was positioned was incredible. This view is what you pay for. However, the place needs desperately to be updated. EVERYTHING needs to be updated. The murphy bed wasn't very comfortable yet that would have been fine if the gap between the head of the bed... More

We stayed here Friday & Saturday night for our anniversary. While initially booking the Waterfront bungalow, Renae was super helpful with helping make our anniversary a little more special. I paid extra and she was able to set up the room with some champagne, flowers and chocolates. It was a nice touch. When we arrived, it was located directly in... More

The location is excellent. Our room overlooked the intercoastal waterway and was just a few steps from the beach. The initial room left a lot to be desired. Very dated, cabinetry and furnishings seemed delapidated. The TV was ancient. We were moved the next day to the room we were supposed to get initially. Efficiency kitchen seemed adequately supplied for... More

My wife and I were looking for a quick getaway and a nice affordable place on the beach. This fit the bill.

Tucked away on Casey Key, this place offers a way to get "away from it all." Management is very responsive to guest needs.

Definitely not what they describe. They told us they were on the beach. They are not. The screens on the patio were ripped. There was a coffee maker but no coffee. The patio chairs were filthy. I would positively look elsewhere.

The Resort is a Beach Resort. We have a large private beachfront location on Casey Key that's very quiet and secluded for only our guests to use. In addition, there are gazebos overlooking the beach and we offer lounge chairs once you get down to the shoreline. We appreciate your feedback about the screens. We've been working very hard since... More

Had stayed at this place for 45+ years- booked reservations in January - new owner as of March, 2016. Would not honor our standing reservations - found new and better accommodations just a few doors down. Doubling the prices does not make for a Luxury Resort.
