I went for a week with myself and my dog. This place exceeded all my expectations. I have a very well behaved, but active dog that is best left off leash. With good behavior, he was allowed to roam free around the resort and they were SO nice to him, spoiling him with treats and toys. 10 STARS FOR DOG FRIENDLY!!! The staff provided me with beach chairs and an umbrella upon request, and the housekeeping was very good. Funny thing is, I didn't need the chair and umbrella because they have chairs near the beach that sit in the shade of a GORGEOUS sea grape tree. Imagine spending a full day on the beach without having to carry anything (chair, cooler, towels, umbrella, toys) because if you need anything you can walk right back to your room. This place is laid back, attentive, personable, and makes me feel like I found a hidden gem.…
This was our first trip to the Islands End. We had made numerous trips to St Pete Beach and seen the Inn, but never could match our time with availability. They had a cancellation, and we were able to stay there. We had a great time... very friendly staff, beautiful location. Thanks for a great visit!
We love this place, been there twice and just confirmed our visit for next year. We like unit F, which is the smallest (I think). It's clean, perfect for two people, still large enough to have 2 TVs. There's a comfy king-size bed, and a private patio for this unit that is literally only separated from the ocean with volcanic rocks that are probably for erosion control. You can't go 10 minutes without seeing dolphins! The sunrise and sunsets are spectacular, it is low-key - no loud music or screaming drunk college kids. The staff are there if you need them but they leave you alone. You can ask for housekeeping or not - we don't, we like to chill without people coming in and out. Highly recommend.
This was our six or seventh visit to Islands End. The location is super convenient to the beach and restaurants. We barely drive anywhere once we settle in. While there were other guests, we rarely ran into anyone. And it’s always good to hang with the resident dog, Jake. We may be back this upcoming January or February. The escape from the grey Ohio winter was as usual refreshing.
I made a reservation for Christmas and due to covid had to cancel. It was done well within the 2 week timeframe. I have yet to receive the 50% refund. I have called and emailed multiple times. I have been promised the refund but still no $. I would appreciate a call confirming that this was processed.
