My sis and I stayed at #9. I had engaged a beachhouse, but upon arriving, I could not locate it,and when we did, it was not what we thought it would be. So, I pulled into the Outrigger, with no notice., Explained our dilemma, and within minutes, we were in Unit 9.. awesome, Gulf views, just great for me &... More

An older resort, but well kept, very clean, and has reasonable prices. The best part--it's right on the beach! We didn't have an ocean view room (those rooms require minimum 4 - day stay) but we were so close, it didn't matter. The hotel has a restaurant on site and a huge deck with a tiki bar. Our room was... More

If you are looking for quiet, close to the beach and casual...this is the place for you. We stayed in # 6. First the "bad". The seal on the front door was inefficient and twice we had gecko visitors, no big deal for us, but it may be worrisome to more squeamish people. We love to leave the patio door... More

If you are looking for a place out of the hustle and bustle this is it. Was a little apprehensive at first because it is an older condo but was very pleased with the cleanliness and updated condo #6. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. We spent a lot of time on the lanai listening... More

I just so happened to stumble upon this resort on a vacation rental site and I'm so glad I did! We are a large group of 8 w/ an elderly couple and this 4/3.5 w/ a master bedroom on the 1st floor was perfect for us. If you've done any searching for a condo on/near the beach in this area... More

This is a small complex in the middle of LBK. Great location Property is well kept. Laundry room is close and reasonable. There is a shed by the laundry room with beach stuff, toys. The beach is beautiful ! and right there. Unit 5 was clean, nicely decoated with a few quirky things that were no big deal. Just remember... More

We have stayed at the Outrigger Resort in 2008, 2009, and again in 2011. I have two kids 6 & 11. Each year we have stayed in Unit 3 which is VERY spacious. First, this is not the type of resort where you are walking long distances. It is Florida charm at it's best. It's not a high rise or... More

The view across the gulf is amazing. We even got to swim with a small shark. The manatees swim past daily ,... More

We relaxed in the pool area and enjoyed long walks on the beach. We stayed in unit # 10 it was very relaxing and the apartment... More
