“Old Florida hideaway”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

Wonderful hidden treasure. Quiet and peaceful atmosphere with very attractive landscape and well appointed cottages. Great pool area. Docks for your boat give it an extra since the fishing seems to be good. While we were there several guests returned with great catches. Jonathan was cordial ad helpful with local information. Will definitely put this on our "must return" list.

Room Tip: I think they are all well appointed. 1811 and 1813 are connecting for if traveling with another cou...

This IS a hidden gem in the Old Florida style. The landscaping is lush and the atmosphere is of peace and quiet. The weather was perfect so we enjoyed lots of outside time on the river dock, poolside and on our private, large patio. Johnathon was most accommodating and we appreciated his restaurant recommendations. We had the studio "apartment" which was adequate for our two night stay. If staying longer I would opt for a larger unit. My husband enjoyed his 4 hour fishing trip and we were only about 20 minutes from the Hard Rock casino. The pool and area were lovely but the water was too cold to go in. Johnathon said he does heat it for the winter. A great place to relax and enjoy the outdoors.

Room Tip: Do not get a studio if you're staying longer than a few nights. Try Circles restaurant in Apoll...

My wife and I were looking for something different on a recent week in Florida. I'm a great fan of eccentric Florida writers ( Hiaasen, Tim Dorsey, John D) and the Old Florida I read about. Pirates Pointe was just that feel with modern comforts. A beautiful spot on the river and lush grounds, a wonderful pool and deck area. Sunsets from the dock. Our cabin was clean and comfortable with a small fridge and coffee maker which made for great mornings on the back deck. Jonathon is the kind of guy you wish you dealt with more often. Straight forward, honest and the Captain of his domain, trust him. Both my wife and I agreed that we will return to Pirates Pointe and enjoy this little slice of Florida again.

Fantastic place. great and clean accomodations. we stayed in the 1 bedroom which was roomy. Very tropical setting, great place to relax and get away. I just wanted to take my husband to relax and unwind, we found an excellent place. The pool was nice and the deck on the river was beautiful. The people were extremely friendly. We will book again with a few couples for a great getaway.. While there go up to 19th street and eat at the Fish House, freshest scallops around

Although I'm certain he tried! LOL Great guy, resort, fishing, accomodations, pool, truely too much to list. We had a great time! Next time we will plan on a longer stay! Extremely relaxed comfy, quiet evenings on the dock, cleaned our catch and cooked dinner right there on the dock/ boat. Everyone we met there were return guest and we all had a great time. I did forget to mention in the exit comment card..the "Captain Statue" in the living room was missing his telescope and we had nothing to do with it's dissappearence! Seriously, great place to stay!

Room Tip: Any room at Pirates point is a good 1 (Hows that?) Several options for accomodations, just pick out...

Stayed there for four days and tried to find good restaurants thru tripadvisor. Always worked before but not this time. Wish I would have talked to Jonathon first! He's a ex-restaurant owner and has the low down on everything local. Great stay and very laid back area, so relaxing. Heated pool and neat little place. Very clean.

Rock on Pirate's Pointe, we'll be back!
