This was our first visit to the FL Gulf so I have nothing to compare this to. We loved being right on the beach. Walk out the back door onto an enclosed patio, off the patio onto the beach. Literally. It really doesn't get much better, if that's what you're looking for, and that's what we were looking for. And... More

I recently spent three nights at the Bungalow Beach Resort. The room was decorated in a light, airy style. It was well kept. There was an equipped kitchen with coffee making supplies included. We brought in food from a nearby grocery store. The staff was very helpful in providing information about restaurants, attractions that were nearby. The beach was steps... More

This is my favorite place in the whole world! My husband and I got married here and we were blessed to be able to spend our third anniversary here! We had the time of our lives! Waking up every day in the beautiful room, right on the beach! Who could ask for more! The owners and staff are the best... More

Picturesque, serene and beautiful, that is how I would describe it. We spent 2 days here with some family friends, we loved the walks on the beach, the close proximity to great food and the atmosphere is so relaxing and inviting. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were just adorable in their furnishings and conducive to relaxing,... More

Besides the quaint cottage style accommodations our hosts Anastasia and Brooke provided welcoming and excellent service. The stark white decorated rooms although small are clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.

our room,(the mermaid) was so perfect. the room was cozy , the covered deck offered a perfect place to have coffee , wine, and dinner, in sunshine, rain and sunset viewing. It is steps away from wonderful lounge chairs directly on a perfect beach. Another benefit is that it was walkable to many great restaurants and shops. Thank you to... More

This was a very nice spot with a Key West/Hawaii feel and look. We had one of the beach front rooms with a nice back porch overlooking the water. VERY expensive and not worth the price but you only live once. Some of the other rooms may be more reasonable. You enter under a canopy of native trees and reach... More

Very charming property right on a beautiful, very open, beach. There are four units that face the ocean, the rest do not have an ocean view. The room we had was one of the four ocean view rooms and it was very clean and bright. The outside walkways are all sand which is fine but you will have sand on... More
