We went for a long weekend with family and friends we stayed somewhere else for the majority of our vacation. We decided we were not ready to return home, the place we normally stay was not up to par. We found BBR and loved it. The STAFF was great! The cottage we had was small but cozy. There was no... More

We were assigned to room 105. Bathroom was very small with a handle resembling a fence latch for a door knob. We felt very much like we were in a mobile home. The floor gave with every step I took. We were told we could get WIFI, but that never happened despite all of our best efforts as well as... More

This was mine and my mothers first vacation getaway since I was a child. We loved the whole atmosphere. It is just what we needed and expected being able to walk right out of our bungalow and be on the beach. We will be back again.

The resort had a very relaxed and vintage feel. The room was quaint and lovely. We enjoyed dinner on our patio and relaxing on the lounge chairs. It was right on the beach and close to dining and shops. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We are looking forward to a return trip and plan to extend our stay... More

Very friendly and hospitable staff. I took the kids and they enjoyed the beach and pool. The easy access to the beach and trolley stop made it convenient and relaxing for mom. The kitchen is well equipped which makes it nice to enjoy meals in and out with kids.

Travel back in time. My wife said the bungalows reminded her of the places her family stayed at in the 1950s on Long Boat Key. But with better beds and decor. Bungalow beach is Not for everyone, but if it suits you, it suits you well...

Our 4th stay at Bungalow Beach Resort was disappointing. It's been a number of years since we were there last and it seems that no maintenance or updates have been done since. This is still a charming and unique property with a great location, but it is sadly run-down - no attention to details. Without going into a list of... More
