We really enjoyed our stay for our 30th anniversary . Friendly & helpful staff. Nicely remodeled. We are already planning a future trip with our adult children and friends . We feel it's a great place to have family & friends join you.

If you are a beach walker, this is a perfect location. The walk to the North Jetty, where the little fish camp opens at 5AM for coffee, bait etc. was my morning routine. The patio areas are inviting and the comfortable beach lounge chairs are a plus. I rented a small unit with 2 twin beds. Nice decor and a much better than average walk in shower.It had a high table with 2 chairs. The beds had wheels, so I rolled away from the wall if I tried to lean back and read. Didn't think to check if wheels locked. If I were
to stay again (and I certainly hope to), I'd buy
a lawn chair to have a more comfortable place to sit. Loved that I could walk across the bridge and be at 2 waterfront restaurants.

We have a group of family and friends that rent every room on the property. It's like our own beachfront property and is just so much fun! We do cookouts in the courtyard along with having music and dancing, we laze on the beach all day long and on Saturday afternoon/evenings they have the drum circle where the girls put on their gypsy skirts and dance in the circle to the drums while watching the beautiful sunset. The rooms are clean and beautifully decorated and are spacious. The staff is just so nice but they are also very respectful of our privacy. The pool is nice to jump in to after being on the beach all day long and the boat docks on the canal are great to have for those that bring their boats. A Beach Retreat is just a great place to go to relax and enjoy life. I look forward to this vacation every year!

Room Tip: Rooms across the street on the canal side and rooms around the small courtyard are quieter. Rooms su...

What a wonderful experience and an ideal location. The property manager's at this resort are awesome and make our stay so complete. Surrounded by the intra-coastal on one side and the gulf on the other, you could not ask for a better location. Walking distance to restaurants, fishing, pool and of course the beach. It is a great place to stay and enjoy going every year!!

A great find literally off the beaten path! We found this small gem after looking for a place close to the Legacy Trail.The day after Christmas we arrived for a sorely needed quick getaway. It's on the beach and very Old Florida which is the best in my humble opinion. After riding twenty miles each day we'd come back to enjoy the beach. Civilization is close but not on top of you. So forget about time and shoes and just chill! The efficiency rooms are a bit small and there's no hairdryer but we weren't looking for a five star resort but a sweet reminder of what Florida used to be.

Room Tip: Efficiencies are small and can comfortably room two people. I'd have liked to see one of the lar...

Location was great,also very clean place. Since it was a last minute trip, we ended up renting a couple of efficiencies because two and three bedrooms were already taken. Staff was very nice and willing to do whatever we asked.

Beach Retreat is a magnet for my wife and I. We came her many years ago expecting to stay once and move on. That didn't happen. We keep coming back, year after year. This is a place to relax, meet new friends, reunite with old friends or just spend some time by yourself. We walk the beautiful beach, ride bikes and dine at some of the finest seafood restaurants. The staff is caring and accommodating. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The setting is magnificent. Looking forward to our April 14 week in paradise.

Room Tip: Rooms with a seperate bedroom add to your experience
