“Why stay anywhere else?”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 for a stay in May 2013

This place is amazing! My sister and I stayed here as half of our 8th Annual Sister's Adventure and wish it had been our entire trip. This place is so charming, so relaxing, so beautiful and did I mention huge! When we arrived we were greeted by Mark who helped us with our belongings and getting our kayak off the car and onto the dock. He was very accommodating and gave us info on where to go fishing, kayak, where to eat and anything else we asked him. We fell in love with him! We also took out his skiff two days in a row and had a blast! We were so lucky to have had him working on the unit next door during our stay.

We loved the ambience of this place. The kitchen is state of the art with everything you could possibly image. We made good use of the Margaritaville blender for frozen drinks on the dock after a long day of boating and kayaking. The bedrooms are so unique. I got to stay in the Mermaid room at the rear of the cottage and it was like sleeping in a ride at Disney World! Not to mention that every morning I woke to a beautiful view of the water. The pictures do not do this place justice. It exudes the spirit of old Florida in a fun and inspiring way, with pieces of history throughout. We had breakfast on the porch every morning overlooking the water where we planned our day. No noise from Bert's and no problem with our private parking spot. We LOVED this place! Nothing but positives from the time we booked with Shelly to the time we tearfully left our little piece of paradise and our new best friend, Mark. We loved this place so much we purchased a "pirate chest" Christmas ornament to remind us of the wonderful time we had here.
