“Cute with a great location but not a full scale resort”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We spent two weeks at the Beachpoint Resort and enjoyed every minute. Our suite felt like a home away from home. All of the amenities were great: tv, a/c, laundry facilities, gas grill, beach toys and chairs and a well appointed kitchenette. There are no dining facilities or a pool or any of the things one associates with a resort, but the village is a very short walk with very good restaurants. Our unit was clean when we checked in but was not serviced during our two week stay. They seem to only clean the rooms between tenants. We stayed in a downstairs unit which was fine if no one was upstairs, but as soon as a family with three young children moved in, it was unbearably noisy. If you are looking for a real resort with tiki bars and pools, this is not the place for you. If you want a cute, funky, and relaxed place close to the beach, the Beachpoint Resort might work for you. It might be more appropriately named Beachpoint Bungalows as I do feel the use of the word resort is somewhat misleading.

My daughter and I were taking a road trip not knowing where we would end up staying. We exited off 207 from Hwy 75 and just drove to the beach. We stopped at Beachpoint Resort which was sort of a hippish place. Very laid back, casual, and very clean. It was just a one minute walk to the beach which is absolutely breath taking. The village with all the shops and fabulous resturants were just a 3 minute walk from the back of Mike's resort. (very convenieint location) Mike was very helpful, friendly and went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. What we didn't have he provided. I was expecting to get a standard room with 2 beds. We were pleasantly surprised by the full one bedroom apartment with a fully stocked kitchen.

Thanks Mike I will be bavk next time with my husband.

We stayed at the resort for only a short time but we loved the location and our room. Mike and his staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Room was very clean and we like Mike's little dog (Boy).We could walk to numerous restaurants and the beach is steps away. Our plan is to return this year.

If you're looking to stay in a five star hotel, this isn't the place for you. If, however, you're looking for convenient access to the beach, excellent amenities within walking distance, character and a unique environment surrounded by nice, interesting people who, again, allow for your private enjoyment without any intrusion, you've found an excellent choice with Mike's place here. I'm not exactly sure why, but I enjoyed my vacation here moreso than any other I can recall. His flexiblility on departure time was icing on the cake. Give him a shot if you prefer uniqueness to 'cookie cutter perfection' we'll definitely be back... Wherever you stay, siesta key is beautiful.

Room Tip: We stayed in 4, which was nice for 2 or more on a budget, small but comfortable for 2, fully capable...

Stayed here for one Night (14th August) and loved it. Mike actually 'rescued' us as we couldn't find the hotel that we originally decided on and I was wandering around looking for any availability. Mike was walking his dog and asked if we needed help.
Anyway we got a room for the night and paid $100 (we were quoted $229 by a place on the opposite side of the road!).
It had a double bed in and a further double for my 14 year old on a loft type area. The bathroom was newly installed and the kitchen area had all we needed for a nights stay. The room was clean and we had a partial view of the beach and sea. I have no complaints at all about this place, other than noisy air con.
The area outside was clean and tidy, okay so it was a little shabby here and there but hey, you get what you pay for.
We are actually thinking of coming back here next year for a weeks stay. I have stayed in many hotels in the US (from 3 star to 5) and this one is one of my faves. It was a laid back type of place which is why I loved it so much.

Room Tip: We had room number 4 which had the partial beach and sea view when you sat on the porch.

In it's day, the place probably was nicer. It's quite run down and even though Mike is constantly working around the property, there are many things that need replaced. In our unit, the toilet barely flushed. You had to hold the handle down the entire time. The sink fixtures were loose and missing parts. The shower head was very short and uncomfortable for anyone over say 5'5". The hair dryers did not work well. The free wi-fi didn't work most of the time. The kitchen had limited supplies and smelled like burnt food. Didn't even attempt to cook there...just didn't feel clean. The refrigerator took two days to cool. The ice maker did not make ice. There were not very many electrical sockets to plug in cell phones, and the holes didn't hold the prongs of your charger. It kept falling out. The tile floor is hard to keep clean. A swiffer would be a nice addition to each unit. The bath towels are very thin. Though we never saw bugs, we did see snakes on the property and of course tons of lizards. The front door didn't unlock well with the key. It was nice that the place is pet friendly, but there is no grass for pets to use the bathroom...you have to walk then down the street to find grass. The beach chairs are old, but nice and roomy lounge chairs. The grounds are decorated in a cute Key West style...colorful, but some of the umbrellas needed replaced. The air conditioners worked well. There is top notch televisions and some stereo equipment.

The vibe is very laidback....almost to the point of being unprofessional. It's disappointing to be treated rudely by the owner especially after paying the high price for the place and odd to see the cleaning gals drinking and running around in bathing suits/coverups or very causal.

It is a bit confusing when people arrive and do not understand where to find him. There is not office. Only a sign that points to an office phone, which most people don't see.

The big plus to the place is the location, but unfortunately the overall experience was not worth the price paid for the visit.

The week felt more like a week camping, and if you don't mind this....then this would be a good fit for you. If you are used to more a professional atmosphere, and better facilities, then you should be careful about choosing this location.

The public beach location is nice and wide. It does have the tendancy to collect water if it rains and smells a bit fishy. There are a lot of birds that hang out on the beach, but on a positive note, this location is much less crowded then the public park area.

Room Tip: If you choose this location, the front units, 2, 3, and 4 have the best view of the beach. Bring ex...

The one pro...location...now..the many cons...the owner is rude beyond belief...units are run down and filthy with holes in the walls....there are snakes everywhere on the property....parking is an issue....i would never recommend anyone to stay at this dump...and no..this place isnt 'rustic beachy'...its dirty, snake infested, bug infested, and a sticky dirty dump. I have never in my 30 years as an adult traveller stayed at a place this bad...with an A # 1 rude onsite owner.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
When you vacation at Beachpoint on Siesta Key, you create memories. The eclectic cottages of Beachpoint are only 100 yards from the pure white, sugary sand of Siesta Key Beach. BeachPoint Resort Cottages is one of the very few vacation rental properties with direct access to a private area of the beach accessible primarily by foot or bike. Locals love this quiet and less crowded part of Siesta Beach. Our unique hotel offers eye candy everywhere: colorful cottages set in tropical gardens with vivid flowers, funky local art, large open sun decks and shaded courtyards. Gather with new friends in the courtyard, sunbathe on a deck with an ocean view, or hide away in a shady nook for a quiet read. You are just steps from the water and a short 2 minute stroll from Siesta Village, so you may never need to move your car! In the village you'll find a variety of restaurants and several bars featuring live music. You can shop with the locals for everything from groceries to clothes and shoes, books, souvenirs, and even hardware. And there's a US Post Office right in the local drugstore. All the conveniences are easily accessible, but Siesta Key maintains a feeling of old Florida. Locals treasure our pristine beaches which offer a protected habitat for native island birds, as well as the dolphins, manatees and other aquatic wildlife living just offshore. And each evening, locals and visitors walk or bike to our special part of the beach to see the best sunset views on the key. Once you visit the Beachpoint Cottages, you'll see why so many of our guests come back year after year to vacation with us on Siesta Key. ... more   less
