We had a perfect 2-week stay at the Whispers-Resort. I stayed with my 7-year-old daughter in one of the appartements. In the mornings and evenings we were able to see the dolphins swim by, right in front of the resort, which was absolutely amazing. The location was beautiful and very peaceful. The appartement was good in size, clean and had...

1 bedroom and a pull out sofa bed. Do not rent this unit if you have more then 2 people. Sofa bed is worn out. It is our first night here and I slept in my car as I guess I will have to do the rest of the week too. Way to expensive for sleeping in the parking lot....

Dear Friends, I am astonished to see this here. It is the first I have heard of this. It is rather bizarre in my experience. I am completely baffled why they did not contact me.. That is the logical thing for someone to do. I keep air mattresses as well and they could have had one. On top of a...

The arrival to Florida started off a bit topsy turvy as the airline lost our luggage. We arrived at whispers resort with a lot of stress and panic. The property owner was there to greet us and show us around the property, which I have to say, is the perfect getaway from all the fast paced NYC life. I had...

Dear Seth, I am happy to have helped you. I also appreciate your kind comments. We feel that it is only small and caring mom and pop places like ours that can give the kind of personal attention that we do. I am glad that you were able to chill out and relax as soon as you got here and...

Mind over Matter...If you don't mind , it doesn't matter. Whispers is a place that is somewhat outdated if you compare it to the pristine marble condos built today. We found that there were many things that outweigh the glamer of the new condos here. If you can ignore lose door handles, broken light switches and older plumbing and enjoy...

Hi Joseph, Thanks so much for your kind comments. We do keep close to our "raison d'etre" our reason to be, our mission statement. Whispers is a 50's / 60"s original and a bit of Florida heritage. Sharda and I resisted the developers through the "McCondo's" boom in Florida. We could have sold out for a couple of million bucks...

Thanks so much for your review. Our goal is to preserve and provide an authentic Florida Vacation from the "Good ol' Days" when many of us came to Florida with our parents. When we packed up the family in the old "woodie" station wagon and headed south. The developers were right on our heels begging us with cash offers so...

This is not a resort. Dirty, unkept, out dated......I could go on and on. We were very disapointed by Whispers on every level. The place is very old and has not been kept up. Walkways need to be dug up and replaced then maintained. Dirty and cracked. Fountains could be charmimg if painted and maintained. This is the theme through...

It is unfortunate that a person can affect the livelihood of an owner without a thought as to what harm they are doing. Sharda and I have put our heart and soul into Whispers and in keeping this property in balance, updated but still a 50's era traditional Florida resort. Do we keep the original colored bathroom fittings and tiles...

My husband and I stayed at Whispers for 3 weeks recently and really enjoyed this charming escape. As soon as you walk through the front gate you feel that you've entered your own private tropical garden in the middle of a bustling beach community. Our condo was clean, comfortable and well equipped for our needs. The beach, great restaurants and...

Hi Bob, I want to thank you for your kind comments and it made me think. I reckon there are some people, admittedly in the minority, that do think we should "put a mint on the pillow". So this might be a good opportunity to remind folks of what you reminded me... namely... that this is a SELF CATERING vacation....

A great place to escape impersonal high rises and connect with fellow travellers. The olde-world charm is what Whispers is about, and reminded me of Balinese villa- style accommodation - tropical, friendly. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Whispers - it proved to be the tonic I needed & particularly enjoyed watching the sun set over the water in the...

Hi, We dont get a whole lot of visitors from down under. But when we do they are always first class folks who get along well and have a natural easy way about them. We hope that you will come back for "sundowners" (cocktails for the rest of us) pool side. Best wishes and thanks for the lovely review. Sharda.

This place is misrepresented on the web site. It is filthy and a awful place to stay. As soon as we arrived I called Jeffery to complain and ask for our money back, which he refused. He stated that he did not misrepresent the property because he called it "Old Florida Style". And I was the only one whoever complained....
