We traveled to Florida to move our friend home that had been working at one of the Disney parks. We spent four long days riding rides and standing in line at all the parks. I knew that by the end of our 4 days we would want to relax at the beach. I have spent time in Clear Water Beach before, and knew that for our group it would be perfect. Plus the drive from Orlando isn't that long!
We had 5 people total.We are all 23-24 years old. We wanted to be near the action but still have space from all the crazy summer breakers. The cost of renting two hotel rooms plus having to eat out every meal wasn't appealing to us.There are not many places on the island that can hold 5 or more people and be available for 3 or more nights. Beachy Keen is one of the very few.
It was perfect for our group! Everything felt clean and homey. The kitchen had all the essentials for cooking. 2 bedrooms with good size beds and plenty of closet space. The bathroom was much lager than expected. The table which holds six people was great not only for dinners, but for card games and yhatzee! They suppy plenty of beach toys and chairs if needed. The girls loved the mirrored wall, it allowed plenty of space for getting dressed up to go out at night.
As far as location goes, you can't beat it! It was literally 2 minutes away from the beach. If you don't want to walk, there is a public parking lot near the beach access. We walked everywhere! Pier 60 is less than a mile away. The beach shops are less than a 10 minute walk away and there are plenty of restaurants and night life within walking distance( 5-10minutes). There is a park across the street that is great for kids as well a water park a few blocks away.
Mike was very helpful with any requests that we had. You can really tell by talking with him, that he wants everyone that stays there to enjoy their stay. We had a great time and have all agreed that when we return, we will definitely be booking our stay at Beachy Keen.

Owner's Response: Hi Lauren,
Thanks for the review. When we purchased "Beachy Keen" we wanted a nice, roomy, and comfortable place that was convenient to beach, shopping and entertainment. It also had to be
inexpensive for renters. I'm glad you saw it that way too!
