We just recently stayed for about a week (Feb 18-24th). Not a bad place overall. The first few days were a bit chilly so we were able to get a portable heater from one of the staff. The staff were very friendly. A little pricey perhaps, but we were lucky they had rooms available as all of the other resorts... More

I recommend Cheston House as an ideal place to stay if you want somewhere that is not vast and sprawling. The pool is nice and always warm and everywhere like Casablanca, The Sandbar, McSorley's, The Deck (good for Breakfast) and Thai on the beach are close by. These places are not gay but if you are like us and not... More

I have to say that I am a bit surprised by several things during this stay. My stay was for two nights in a regular room, which was upgraded to a large, full one bedroom apartment free of charge. I was very much so impressed with the free upgrade. The pool and the common areas are very clean and neat,... More

My partner and I wanted to find a "staycation" place near our home. We found the Cheston House to be a great place. Very clean room, pleasant staff and just what we needed. We often have friends who visit and want to find a place for them to stay! Thank you Cheston House for a pleasant stay!!

Our experience at the Cheston House was fantastic. When we arrived, Chuck checked us in and could not have been friendlier. Not only did the process go exceptionally smoothly, he offered advice on where to go for shopping, dining, beaches, and anything else we could want. The rooms were comfortable. The other guests were friendly and much time was spent... More

We stayed here last year was great. This year the rooms are not kept as well. The service has went way down. The staff are unfriendly this time around. Will not stay here again. For the price better go across the street. The owner of Cheston is a str8 woman who doesn't care about the building.

I had a very nice room overlooking the pool. For a small room I found it quite large with lots of extras for the price, I thought, such as TV, DVD player, microwave and small fridge, coffee maker, Ironing board (no iron but I'm sure the friendly staff would have provided one had I needed one). I could not believe... More

We arrived and were shocked at the quality of repair in the rooms. The aircon was very noisy and vibrated. It was only held in with foam and balanced in place, so in order to sleep we had to turn it off. Due to the heat, we put on the ceiling fan at a low speed which made a clicking... More

A nice little gay guest house. Very friendly staff, very friendly guests. If you want a quiet vacation or a party vacation, you can have it here. Chuck, Lawrence and Larry are incredibly nice guys and will make you feel welcome at their place.

We stayed 2 nights end of April and enjoyed it. That was our first time in FL. Everything was clean including Pool. Were looking for a quiet place and it was. Next door are two other establishments but this is more of a party crowd that goes 24h ..... Room was simply furnished but it did not bother us at... More
