Villas with great Gulf views and a place where relaxing in the sun and having fun is supreme! Outstanding resort amenities and no crowds to deal with! From the moment you take the short ferry ride you feel miles away from it all! Remember to bring your beach gear and towels!

Our aunt and uncle on my wife's side have a house here. It's the best place to check out from life, wear swim trunks and flops all day and gym shorts and a t-shirt at night. The beach is gorgeous and never crowded, and the staff is amazing! I encourage everyone to escape from reality here!

The room was very good. Housekeeping could have been better about exchanging towels daily and emptying trash. Otherwise, the pool, staff, gym, and private beach, were all very good. private island, Big Hickory, contains the best seashells in FL, period.

We went to visit some friends and stayed with them at the condo. What a wonderful time we had a beautiful view of the beach. Had dinner at the restaurant right on the island. Such a great mini vacation.

This is a really wonderful location for a beach vacation. We rented a house and had a great time. There is a lot to do and it is very private and isolated while still having lots of amenities.There is a restaurant and bar on the island

After we took the ferry across, we stayed in a beach "villa" which houses multiple condos. Each set of villas has their own pool and looks out onto the beach. Everything was clean, comfortable, and well appointed. The screened porch was great for sitting out in the evening listening to the ocean and was the only place in our room... More

The beaches are unlike anywhere else. This is the last bit of untouched Florida. We stayed here a few weeks ago and it was wonderful. The staff is wonderful and accommodating. Rum Bay Restaurant is okay - stick with ribs, coconut shrimp and the signature Rum Bay Smash. The rooms vary greatly depending on what level of room you have.... More
