Beautiful place but had some misrepresentations
Where we stayed was absolutely beautiful. At the last minute because of Covid our children’s summer camps were canceled so we had to bring them with us and thank the Lord the owners Did not charge us for the extra $300. The kids had to come but the Owners were very disappointed that we have five kids. Of Course we paid upfront for our three night stay so we still went. On TripAdvisor it said that it is pet friendly and when we got there, there was a notice on the fridge that NO PETS are allowed inside at all and it being in Florida was 100° SO we had to keep our for baby outside on the deck only. The circumstances of Covid made our trip very hard and not as relaxing as we had hoped. The local Ms. Jewel was very helpful when we called her with any questions.

Amazing vacation
What an amazing vacation!! The property and aminities where awesome and it was so easy to just pull the boat up and unload our catch for the day. Also the furnishings were just like home and not like a rental property. Plus the neighbors are so friendly and inviting.

About the neighborhood
Horseshoe Beach is located along the nature coastline with miles of undeveloped coastline where there is abundant wildlife and the waters teaming with speckled sea trout, red fish and scallops. The scalloping season runs from the 1st of July through sometime in September. Off shore fishing is also available from Horseshoe Beach and there are numerous fishing charters locally. The town is gulf cart and bike friendly with numerous canals to access the gulf. Even though beach is part of the town's name, beaches are very limited. The closest beach is a few miles away at Shired Island Wildlife Area. Shopping here is very limited and we recommend that you do your shopping for your stay prior to your arrival.
