My wife, two sons (ages 17 & 19), and I spent a week at this wonderful retreat. It is a very nice Florida style home that is well maintained. The owners made us feel like guests in their home, not like renters. We arrived to fresh flowers, wine, a fully stocked refrigerator, and a welcome note. The grounds are nice with a screened in pool and short pathway directly to the beach right in your own backyard! The beach area has a deck built into the dune. We especially enjoyed lounging on the deck between dips in the placid Gulf. Early mornings and sunsets are a special time on this beach! Wonderful opportunities to reflect on God's creation and blessings. Fishing from the beach in the evening was also fun. Lots of action around sunset. It's a very short walk to the Casey Key Fish House. We had several meals there, all excellent. It is a short drive to Venice FL, and we enjoyed eating at "Made in Italy". Great food and nice people. But you don't need to eat out all the time. There are plenty of markets nearby, and the kitchen at this house is well equipped. If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing getaway in a beautiful place, I think you will enjoy this home. We are thankful for the time we spent there.
