Island House is a quaint two story beachfront resort located on beautiful unspoiled Casey Key, approximately 15 miles south of Sarasota. The efficiencies or studio apartments and 1 BR apartments open directly onto the Gulf of Mexico and have full, well equipped kitchens. Guests enjoy the quiet tropical paradise. Island House also has motel rooms which do not face the gulf, but are equipped with a refrigerator/freezer, microwave and coffee pot, and are just steps from the beach. Owned by the same family since 1960, our guests keep returning year after year and so will you. Join us for beautiful sunsets at your Island House getaway. Our managers Staci and Earl handle our reservations and bookings directly to give the best personal attention to the details of your stay.

Not your upscale resort with pool, gym, bells and whistles but that style of accommodation is available everywhere these days and with gulf beach literally at your doorstep there's no need for fancy trimmings. All furnishings and appliances in perfect order and our unit spotless. It's more than the bricks and mortar that makes somewhere perfect. This place has heart and have to say Staci is a big part of that along with the other guests we met and general communal atmosphere of complex which felt safe and welcoming. So good we stayed additional nights (due to unit luckily being free for couple of nights before next guests) on our meander around Florida. Thank you for letting us share this little piece of paradise. Back in grey rainy Ireland now but with fantastic memories.

Grainne & Niall, It was such a pleasure having both of you at the Island House. The other guests also commented how friendly you are, and they were glad to have met you both. My job is so rewarding since I get to meet great people and hear about their part of the country. I am so glad you had a good time and hope the rest of your trip was wonderful as well. I look forward to seeing you both again and until then have a great rest of the year and hopefully a break from the rain and sunshine in your life. Thanks again, Staci

Though we only live 85 miles from this slice of heaven it seems a world away whenever we come for a stay. Just got back from a 1 night motel room stay to celebrate my birthday. The beach is spectacular. Water was warm and we had big waves that were rements of a tropical storm that went up the Gulf a few days prior. It was fun riding the waves. Staci greeted us in her usual upbeat friendly and positive manner. Its always nice to see her each time. She remembers us though it might have been a year since we were last here. We've been coming to Island House for 11 years now. Our room was just renovated and was in mint condition. The decor is tastefully beachy. A big plus is the new ac unit that you dont hear at all. Makes sleeping easier. We dont mind bringing sheets down when we leave, cleaning the dishes we use or emptying our own trash. There is usually a vacuum cleaner in the hallway that we run quickly before we go. All of these minor issues make the place even more like home. Although the new upgrades are nice we hope this place is still able to maintain that old Florida charm that drew us here 11 years ago. We'll be back.

I wanted to thank the owners of the Island House and management for always being family friendly. Our service dog is always welcome, but we just had to show papers as required. Our dog is trained to be by my side so it was NEVER an issue. Regarding children, they love the Island House. They do have to be responsible for cleaning up their items at the end of a fun day but that is just respectable to other guests. Love this place. The canal behind the Island House, the North Jetty, the drum circles, and Pops are amazing but the best part of the IH are the great people the hang for quiet sunsets.

Have been going to this quaint place on the beach for years only to find out, after the owner started coming around, children are not what they are looking for. It was explained, by the owner, property must be kept cleaner than your home!! I don’t know about your expectations, but I don’t go on vacation to constantly pick up a beach toy out of the sand or straighten out a chair, so the place can appear to be prestige should a future tenant need a tour. Those who manage the property, Staci and Earl, are the best!!! You are made to feel welcome and encouraged to enjoy your stay. Also, service animals are not exactly welcomed, unless you need it tethered to you at all times. I’m sure they are still trying to figure it out, but until they do, if you use a service animal, this may not be a good fit for you. If you would like a quite place to go and have no children, I highly recommend them, but those with families, are veterans, or those with service animals, I would suggest you check elsewhere!! We will miss our family vacations at the Island House, but memories are not made by the place, but by those you chose to spend it with. As far as me, my choice will be family every time!
