Wonderful small resort with old Florida charm. Located very close to the beach, the sounds of the gentle waves at night will lull you quickly to sleep! Also has a beautiful heated swimming pool for relaxation and fun. I have satayed here many times over the years, and will continue to do so in the coming years.

Hi Willard Thank you so much for your wonderful review. You have no idea how much it helps. Many of our guests tell us that it was because of a review that made them decide to stay here at The Outrigger Resort. We look forward to seeing you and your family here with us again soon.

We stayed in unit 4 and it was excellent. Keep in mind you are not at the Ritz. This is a seaside low-rise building which was probably constructed in the 1960s or 70s. It looks and feels like it is from days gone by but if you embrace the laid back style you'll love it! Our unit was on the...

This resort was built before any of the others so is the closest you can get to the beach. Ask for Apartment 10 for a 1 bedroom or apartment 3 if you need a 3 bedroom. Both condos are spacious, have been remodeled, and have everything including the kitchen sink. Beach and pool are beautiful and not crowded. There is...

If you are looking for quiet, close to the beach and casual...this is the place for you. We stayed in # 6. First the "bad". The seal on the front door was inefficient and twice we had gecko visitors, no big deal for us, but it may be worrisome to more squeamish people. We love to leave the patio door...

If you are looking for a place out of the hustle and bustle this is it. Was a little apprehensive at first because it is an older condo but was very pleased with the cleanliness and updated condo #6. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. We spent a lot of time on the lanai listening...

I just so happened to stumble upon this resort on a vacation rental site and I'm so glad I did! We are a large group of 8 w/ an elderly couple and this 4/3.5 w/ a master bedroom on the 1st floor was perfect for us. If you've done any searching for a condo on/near the beach in this area...

We have stayed at the Outrigger Resort in 2008, 2009, and again in 2011. I have two kids 6 & 11. Each year we have stayed in Unit 3 which is VERY spacious. First, this is not the type of resort where you are walking long distances. It is Florida charm at it's best. It's not a high rise or...
