This was our first time staying at The Beachcomber and it will not be our last! This is our second stay on Casey Key and I am so happy that we were able to stay at this relaxing piece of property. Tekla and Robert could not have been any nicer, from knowing our names upon arrival, to the homemade cookies waiting for us in the fridge, to our little welcoming card inside the room. They truly take pride in their property and in the fact they offer personable service. After we checked in, Robert gave us the tour of the grounds, showing us where everything was located. They have everything you need for your day at the beach there on their property, from the beach chairs, umbrellas, to the beach bag and towels in your room :)
They clean the rooms beyond what I would think after each guest. I know this because they showed us Apt # 2 while it was being cleaned, and I couldn't believe the level of detail that the cleaning lady was addressing. I was very impressed!
We stayed in Apt. #1 and it was prefect for my husband and myself. For being their smaller unit, it had plenty of room for the 2 of us. There was a large rattan shelving unit by the bathroom that was perfect for our bathroom toiletry box, hairdryer, and our extra stuff. There are also two other closets in the room, one with cubbies and one with a smaller shelving unit inside, so storage is not a problem in this apt. The kitchen also had everything that you would need for an extended stay. We did not use the stove or oven but we did use the toaster and microwave. The wall in the room is painted with a pretty beach mural, it is not tacky at all, but actually very peaceful to look at. They have cable and free Wi-Fi. The couch is very comfortable and fits in the room perfectly.
Apt. #1 does not have an outside table and chairs right outside the door like the other units, but that is good news :) Because they have placed a concrete table and chair set right by the wall looking out onto the beach! It was a perfect place to have our morning coffee and breakfast. The grounds are very nicely done in very "Old Florida" fashion, from the shell rock on the walkways to the plants, they really have done an excellent job. At night the grounds are lit with little white lights and it is nice to just sit and listen to the waves while having a glass of wine.
To Robert and Tekla, THANK YOU!!! I hope to see you in August for our anniversary :) And this time I will have extra cash to buy that lovely jewelry you have for sale in the office.
