We stayed in unit 43 with out 10 year old and it was perfect. We were able to walk right across the street to the beach and swim everyday and take a quick 1-2 mile car ride to the jetty where my husband fished off the rocks and my son and I went swimming in the clear blue water. My...

Stayed at this place last night and what an amazingly beautiful place it is. Just a few metres from a gorgeous white beach and warm sea. It was my first time in Florida and I would definitely come back and visit this place.

This was the third time we have stayed at A Beach Retreat. We have stayed in three different rooms and all three were nice. The patio is nice with great views and has two grills to use. We will be back again for sure.

Can't believe all the great reviews and our room was horrible. Don't stay in #20. It's nothing like the pictures. When we checked in the said it was owned by their insurance agent and it was "really nice". The air conditioner ran all night, rattled and never cooled the room. The bathroom sink wouldn't drain, the toilet would run until...

We stayed in apartment number 24 a one-bedroom with ocean views. We stay at this resort twice a year and have never been dissapointed with any of our stays. Our favorites are the one-bedroom suites and this one was one of our favorites. Views from the room are amazing! We have three children and still had plenty of room and...

I remember when most motels on Florida beaches were Mom & Pop places. Over the years, age and hurricanes have washed away most of them. Most have been replaced by Hi-rise motels. A Beach Retreat still offers the charm and privacy of a more quiet time. The rooms are what you would expect for a place of this age. However,...

Immaculate with a sense of community. We stayed in cozy #26, perfect for the two of us and easy walk to the beach and drum circle. Great common area with beautiful Gulf view. Two different family members that we were visiting asked us how we found the place; they too were impressed.

I absolutely loved this place and am already trying to figure out how to go back. I was in #33 on the bayside - beach is right across the street and the unit is spacious and has everything you need. The beach is beautiful, great for swimming, shell collecting or relaxing. The public beach is close and they have activities...

Had room 41 very small but we were not in it much. Very clean, kitchen items were just enough for the few meals we cooked. We have stayed for a few years in a row now and will probably book again for next year. Nice to be near public beach for drum circle, always an experience and close enough to...
