I will begin by saying, I prefer modern-upscale resorts, so this type of "resort" is not really up my alley. I worked in hotels for years, so I am used to providing and receiving round the clock service during stays. This resort is for leisure use, did not see staff while visiting -- very hands off.

We had a great week vacation at Topsider. We were able to launch our boat onsite. The 2 bedrooms were nice for privacy from the kitchen, dining, living room area. We were able to do our laundry during the trip, brought my own bag of pods for detergent. You can buy ice onsite for ~ $3.00 per bag. You have... More

This is a lovely hotel resort with great beach and amazing location. It has 2 bedrooms,2 bathrooms and 1 family room with kitchen. It can fit 6 people. My experience was always amazing. It does not have room service or restaurant. But there is many restaurants around which are truly amazing and worth to try :) There is also pool... More

I purchased timeshare Week 7 in Unit 3C last year. This was our first visit to Topsider. This timeshare was bought sight unseen. It is the third unit from the waterfront. We had water and beach views from the windows in the living area and the deck. Week 7 this year happened to be one of the coldest in recent... More

On the Gulf side, just below the Indian Key bridges @ MM75.5 lies one the Keys' best vacation values. Each house is stand-alone, with dedicated dockage. Full kitchens, washer/dryer, 2 bdrm/2 bth,community pool & tennis, launch ramp and sand beach. Great area fishing, diving, restaurants and shops. No maid service, just peace and quiet in the glorious Keys!

Based on the reviews I read on-line and the lack of pictures, I really wasn't expecting this timeshare exchange to be anything fancy. When we got there, we were more disappointed than anticipated. This is not a 'resort'. The place is an odd shape as you can see by looking at the website. If you are just simply looking for... More

Our first time down to the keys and we were so excited. We rented unit #15 which wasn't an ocean view but just a couple of steps to the little beach, dock and ocean. we got there right when the sun was setting and it was a beautiful location to see it. The grounds were kept well and the people... More

Topsider is well loved by the people that own units there and have been going there since childhood. It is definitely well worn and in need of an upgrade. The management and maintenance staff are super friendly and attentive. If you don't mind the accommodations, it has a pool, a beach area, and dock. Each unit has a combined kitchen... More

This one'll take a while. When booking a unit here I asked the rental manager for a unit near the water. She said #3 was available so I booked. When I got confirmation in the mail the document said unit #16. I called to ask why the change to a unit so far from the water, she said the owner... More
