My parents, who were flying in from Germany, and I stayed at the IBR in January 2013. Since they escaped the European winter I wanted to show them the keys and provide them with enough sun and beach time. We had a great time and wonderful weather! The resort is small but a true gem. Mike and Carol take such good care of their property. The beach is marvelous and exclusive to resort guests. Although the cottage was small, we had everything we needed: kitchenette, bathroom, a sleeper couch and a separate bed room. Carol and Mike helped us out with great recommendations for what to do in the area and we ended up visiting the Everglades, taking a back country boat tour (during which we even saw a baby manatee in the wild), visiting the turtle hospital and much much more. I warmly recommend the IBR to everyone. Thank you Carol & Mike. My parents will definitely come back to escape German winter once again!
