Turtle Crawl is a private owner based small apartment efficiency, each unit individually owed. The units are principally for longer stays, but it was available for one night this March. Very attractive unit, but towels very worn. Appliances available for in unit food preparation, lovely beach view. It is near enough to a Publix grocery, manicure/pedicure spot and liquor store...

My wife and I have stayed at Turtle Crawl Inn, Unit 401, for five years and we have made plans to return in 2013. This one bedroom condo is very comfortable and it is a cozy place to get away from the fast pace of life. The beach is right at your back door and the sunsets are beautiful. There... More

This must be a condo rental place, but we booked it and stayed in a little room with a kitchenette. The location is right on the beach and it has a small pool. It was clean and beachfront, no frills. A nice place to stay a day or two.

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Turtle Crawl Inn for 10 days in unit # 62. This unit has been completely painted, the kitchen remodeled, and a new king size bed with beautiful new bedding. This unit also adjoins with unit # 61 and would be perfect for a family or 2 couples. The whole complex is very... More

We just finished a relaxing three day stay at Turtle Crawl inn. It was lovely. We stayed in unit 503 and it was very nice and clean. The beds were comfortable. The beach was fabulous. This was a very quiet place, so don't expect great nightlife. It was perfect for a relaxing getaway. We found this place online, but did... More

My friend and I have stayed at the inn several times through the years. Each unit is privately owned. If you get a well maintained unit your stay will be lovely. We had been very satisfied in the past. This year I had a horrible experience. We stayed in unit 202.. The unit was extremely damp and as the days... More
