My husband and I were very very pleased with our week experience in March of 2011. Going back this year for 2 weeks with our dog and we really love how friendly the staff is and the whole laid back atmosphere is wonderful. Can really kick back and relax either on the sand on in a hammock. Unit #10 was very spacious with a separate bedroom and very large living room and kitchen. 3-4 people could easily stay in that unit, nothing wrong with bunking on the couch. If you want to be steps away to the sand, a usually quiet compound with lots of charm is Sunset Terrace. Wish we could stay a month, downtown Venice is 5 minutes away so you can always slip on a pair of shoes and go out to eat if you can get up out of your lawn chair.

Really liked the old Florida look, apartment rooms were nice, the complex was very quiet and the service was fine. You do need to ask if you need any service, it is pretty much like being at home but we liked it that way. Free laundry and the kitchens were stocked pretty well with plates,etc.

Room Tip: Bayside rooms are very spacious and family friendly

We had a really good experience at Suntan Terrace, mainly because of the beautiful gulf front balcony and the stunning location, which can't be beat. I love Casey Key (this is our fourth visit). It's beautiful and undeveloped enough that even at Christmas time, it wasn't crowded. We had room 8, which was a one bedroom, gulf front apartment with a private balcony. It was pretty clean, although the grout in the shower, which was otherwise large and very nice, could have used a little work. The kitchen was reasonably well supplied and the furnishings were comfortable. Some people might find the bed a little springy, but I found it comfortable and slept like a baby. I don't think it's a place for tightly wound, type-A people. Like I said, it's funky old Florida, not at all polished, but comfortable. You didn't feel horrified when you inevitably tracked sand into the room. There were several dogs while we were there, with some barking but not a lot, and kind of a convivial mature adult party vibe. I don't think I would have been as happy if we had had the room below us. There's not really a private patio -- it's generally a public gathering area. But I'd take room 8 again in a heartbeat. If you want a slicker, slightly more upscale experience, I'd highly recommend Russell's Retreat, a two-story fourplex about a hundred yards up the beach. We've stayed there three times, and it's great.

Room Tip: Room 8 had a private gulf front balcony. It was otherwise pretty good, but the balcony made it really perfect. I think I'd avoid the ground floor gulf front rooms, at least if you're expecting any privacy. There's a general public area instead of a truly private patio.

We just fell in love with it's historic Old Florida Charm. The Tiki Bar and Hut is a great gathering place to make new friends while staying there. Its a self severe Tiki Hut in the center courtyard. But most of all we held our wedding there on the beach, with a recption around the Tiki bar and patio. The other guests staying there enjoyed the band that we had playing there. It's friendly and just down home.

Room Tip: We stayed in the beach front one bedroom units, so you have to book ahead. Theres so many other rooms on the property and your so close to the beach.

This is our second vacation here and we love this Old Florida style motel It has a laid back atmosphere, friendly staff (especially Debbie & Rio), and is pet friendly, The
units could use a little updating , but it is clean and the beds were very comfortable. We
loved watching all the snook under the newly installed fish lights. We found shark
teeth at the beach and caught a few fish from the dock. It is just a short walk to
some good restaurants on the Inter coastal waterway. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: We prefer a 1 BR over their effeciency as I like to cook and the kitchen is much better.
