We've only been here three days so far and it's amazing! The pictures on VRBO do not do this house justice. The home owners have been equally amazing. In the short time we've been here we have managed to pester them a number of times. The quick and very helpful responses are above and beyond the call. The property is more then we had hoped for. Last night we watched the sun set from the deck twenty feet from the ocean, again... amazing! We will, more then likely, post another review when our stay is over.
Our purpose in opening our home to guests is revealed in this review. Everything we have is a gift that is meant to be shared. We delight in those that see this magical slice of paradise as the gift it is to any that would visit it.
We are excited to welcome this family's return to CKBH.
We could not have found the more perfect location or home. The owners were so accommodating and helpful in every way. The home is beautifully arranged, and well suited for teens and grandparents alike. Thank you for opening your home to us and helping us locate our lost item! We are eager to return next year.
What a wonderful place and a wonderful host! For months now, I have wanted to return to the site to let the owners know how grateful we were to have the opportunity to spend a few days in their lovely home and how kind they were to us. It made our son's time in Fla really special and we so appreciate how you went out of your way to help us locate the lost item! Thank you for sharing your home with us and we hope to return next year.
Peace on Earth
We just spent an incredibly relaxing 10 days in Casey Key. I can't recommend enough how relaxing, peaceful and utterly idyllic this location was for all of us.We were 2 couples, 55+, with our 2 dogs. The home is situated on a very private beach, just a few steps from the house. I can count on 1 hand the number of people we saw walking by us on the beach during our stay. Between the beautiful weather, the wild life and the tranquil surf, we all thought we had died and gone to heaven! The home was immaculately clean and had everything imaginable in the fully-stocked kitchen, for recreation outdoors or some quiet reading in the pool area. The owners have covered it all! If I had 1 small criticism, it would be the beds. When you're older a good night's sleep is a must so sadly, it wasn't always easy to get a restful sleep. The mattresses seemed a little old, especially the 2nd bedroom. Despite that, the owner was a delight to deal with, very gracious and accommodating at all times. Casey Key is exquisite---come visit peace on Earth! You won't regret it!
This guest's review is aptly stated, gracious in its compliments, frank in its recommendation of improvements. The beds are not much slept in, but are not new, as most everything else in the house. We agree w/ the guest that a good night's rest is no less than any deserves. Though no other has commented on the comfort of our mattresses we have placed an order for the two king beds noted above, which will be replaced as soon as the mattress company can get them to the house. We are always grateful to learn from guests the things that might improve their enjoyment of Casey Key Beach House.
Beachfront Tranquility At Its Finest!
We were exceptionally fortunate to spend the month of January enjoying the serenity of this extraordinary Casey Key home that’s truly a gem in the way of beachfront properties. The photos of the property do not do justice to the charm and comfort of this home – which offered outstanding views of the beach and spectacular sunsets over the gulf that were enjoyed from the lanai-enclosed pool area and the incredible raised deck located directly on the beach. The property’s setting on the north end of the island was lovely and afforded the charm of “old Florida” without any commercialization. In truth, the setting around the home and the beachfront was so private that we felt as though we were enjoying our own personal oasis. The locale was perfect for long walks along the beach, bike rides along Casey Key Road, kayaking, and just relaxing on the beach deck with a book while enjoying paradise and Mother Nature at her best! The home itself was immaculately clean and exceptionally well appointed (especially the gourmet kitchen) and we wanted for absolutely nothing in the way of kitchen, bath or recreation (pool, bikes, kayak) ‘essentials’ during our month long stay there. The owners of the property are truly special people who display the upmost hospitality and unassuming graciousness – qualities that they manifest from our first contact at booking to long after our departure from Casey Key. A heartfelt 'thanks' goes out to them for allowing us to be guests in their home. All in all - the owners and property provided an unsurpassed and memorable vacation experience.
The "good book" says that welcoming strangers is to welcome the Lord himself. We have made many friends in the 4-years CKBH has opened its doors to guests. We count this guest among them. They have maintained a correspondence that cares most about the person, delighting in the ways each encourages another. Though we have yet to meet, our introduction, no accident of nature, will surely be followed by our joining in person.
It is the sincerest gift to welcome another into one's home. To be so blessed of it to form sincere appreciation and good will is the gift of this guest to us. Real friendships are made of little else.
The best praise I can provide is that I will return here as much as possible. Beautiful, Secure, Private and fully equipped. My sincere thanks to the owners for allowing me to share in this very special place.
We usually find what we are looking for. This guest was a victim of a vacation home scam. Our response was to credit him the money he lost in attempting to book our property through a scammer.
Every guest deserves the best possible vacation experience. The kindness in making this guest whole after an uncertain start is no less than any deserves. We are grateful they plan to return to our vacation home, and for their sincere efforts at finding good in all circumstances.
