Our family of 3 (Mom, Dad & teenaged daughter) spent 4 nights at Beach Place Guesthouses during our summer getaway. I couldn't have been more pleased with our experience there. The property itself is wonderful, with a beautiful stretch of beach only steps away from the rooms. The owners have obviously put a lot of work and a lot of care into the place. There are plenty of spots to unwind, socialize, and just enjoy the sounds and sights of the ocean. Decks, tables, hammocks, loungers, fire pits and barbeque grills are laid out across the back of the property, directly overlooking the beach. There is gorgeous landscaping and art everywhere. The overall feel is funky and eclectic, but very well-maintained. There is a very laid back, serene vibe here. It's definitely family-friendly, and there were children of various ages there, but if you wanted to just go and relax you'd have no trouble doing that.
Our room was also terrific. There are several different room options available, and their website has pictures and descriptions of them so you can choose what works best for you. We stayed in "Peggy's Treehouse", a second-story condo-style room with one bedroom, one bathroom, a front room and a full kitchen. Everything we needed was provided, including kitchen implements, toiletries, beach towels and even beach toys, umbrellas and chairs. The room was clean and comfortable, with a sleeper sofa in the front room. A family of up to four could probably be just fine in the space this room provided. There was a nice selection of unique and varied decor throughout the unit. The window in the front room gave us great, direct views of the ocean, and the bedroom had a comfortable bed and plenty of closet space. A TV and DVD player were provided, though we didn't even need them as we were too busy enjoying the place.
We spent our time there mostly on the beach, and it was great to be able to make a quick breakfast, get out to the ocean first thing in the morning, and come back up for lunch and a break from the sun whenever we needed to. We did make dinner one night, which we ate outside by the ocean at one of the several picnic tables provided, and it was wonderful. But the rest of the time we ate out, and this hotel is very close to several delicious restaurants (as well as a Publix supermarket, if you prefer to cook your own meals).
Speaking of the location, it was fantastic. Ron Jon Surf Shop was right up the road, Kennedy Space Center (another stop for us) was a short drive, and Orlando was an hour away. Again, there are plenty of restaurants, shopping and places to go within a very convenient distance from the hotel.
While we didn't have much interaction with the folks who run the place, we were greeted warmly upon check-in, and given lots of suggestions and recommendations about local restaurants and places of interest. Everyone seemed friendly and helpful, and if we'd had a problem or needed assistance, I have no doubt that we'd have received the help we needed with no problems.
As it is, we had a completely problem-free stay at Beach Place Guesthouses. I am kinda picky, and if this place hadn't been completely satisfactory, I'd definitely say so. But we loved the place and will absolutely recommend it to everyone we know, plus we can't wait to return ourselves as soon as we have a chance to do so.
