This place is truly a gem! I am very much looking forward to staying here again. The views are amazing and our rooms were super clean. If thinking about staying here I truly can say that it is well worth it. Thank you Marilyn for making our stay that much more wonderful!

People travel thousands of miles to get to a beach like this. We drove 45 minutes with no airports. The view is breath-taking. We had our Wedding here and it was beautiful. Marilyn, the Manager, went above and beyond to make our stay and wedding day perfect. The unit we stayed in was very clean and modern. We enjoyed staying... More

I've been staying at the Island House since 1987. Through different, private ownerships over the years the property has only gotten better and with new owner Sven, his wife and Manager Marilyn, the bar has been lifted yet again. Renovations this year are awesome. The ownership and management are beyond accommodating, and the rates are great. Coming from NC it... More

Please trust me, being steps from the beach is not worth the headache. You are literally paying just for the beach…although the cost is high do not have any expectations that this place will be nice….its a glorified motel complete with a bathroom crawling with ants, hairs left in the shower and stained linens. As if you need any other... More

We spent two days there and enjoyed a fantastic and relaxing time. Our room was totally renovated: new floors, new paintings, new knitchen, new bathrooms and even all brand new furnishings! Very good location, direct on the beach! Very quiet!

I surprised my husband with a mini stay-cation located one hour from our house. I chose this quaint little gem for it's great price and proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, a few foot step to be precise.

We came to The Island house in Feb 2015 to visit my parents who come to Englewood each winter. We had to pay cash and the manager stated that she would talk to the "owner" about a refund due to the broken down condition of the unit. She said "The owners own family would never stay here" and admitted that... More

Thank you for your review Jayne.
