About The Owner

Sharda and I take great joy in this unique property a - piece of Florida's heritage!

On the bay where the beach meets the bay.

Courteous and friendly.

When you are here you are at home.

HERE IS THE EXPERIENCE WE AIM TO PROVIDE FOR YOU:

Think Bee Wop a Doo Dah.

Think 60's retro with unique themed condominiums in a small private Florida jungle retreat.

Take a break from the large, faceless, Mc Hotels.

At Whispers you will NOT lose your family between the lobby and the pool!

This is old time Florida.

Escape the swarms of strangers, crowded pools and relax in the ambiance of a more genteel environment.

Lush jungle gardens and huge trees to shade you, and cool breezes fan you by the pool.

Does this sound right for you?

Then you will love a Florida Heritage vacation, a blast from the past.

The Bee Wop a Doo Dah.

We will take you back to the days when the family piled into Dads Buick Roadmaster 'Woodie' and headed south for an adventure to the pristine beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.

Relive an era before the large 'Box Hotels' popped up on every corner.

Before McDonalds. An era when the corner soda shop was the place to hang out!

This blast from the past has just 8 units set in a lush tropical garden.

Every unit has a unique themed decor, such as Oriental, Africa, Hawaii, England etc.

This is real honest to goodness American apple pie, old time, down home Florida with all its eccentricities.

Whispers is a very small and extremely private bay front property.

Lose your cares.

Feel human again!

Your patronage helps us preserve our Vintage Florida Heritage.

The property is updated while still preserving the essential elements, colors and feel of our Florida heritage.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2000

A Great Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Right on a huge bay where we watched dolphins every day and fished from the dock.

Very clean and uniquely decorated - very much in the style of Florida when I went with my folks on family vacations.

A blast from the past for me and I was able to show my kids what a REAL Florida vacation is all about.

Loved the pool on the water front - the back yard fishing and watching birds like pelicans, egrets and herons standing next to us waiting for a hand out.

Very cute.

Its a great vacation spot with great value.

Owner's Response: Whispers is a very unique, vintage Florida Resort. There is a lot of nostalgia surrounding it especially for guests who came here (or to similar places) on family vacations as a child. For those who have not had the experience is affords an opportunity to have a very memorable vacation. Just the fact that you can sit under an ancient 60 foot rubber tree and fish of the dock or watch the sea birds, is very special. I hope that you will return soon! Jeffrey and Sharda

Thanks to Jeffrey and Sharda for the gracious hospitality and friendly chats...

  • 5 of 5

Not only my baby slept well; I too slept like a baby in the cosy European-styled luxurious feather bed here at Whispers boutique condo. One thing I liked most about my stay was that all my family members had the freedom to eat when and as they liked and we could relax on our own schedules. The availability of a full kitchen added to our convenience and set a slower pace to our days. It made my pocket happy and at the same time, brought smile to my wife’s face. All facilities like a full size stove, microwave, refrigerator, and other appliances are included. Bathroom was clean, with a tub and a shower in the original retro tiles of the 60’s. All the modern facilities were included, A/C in each room with a remote setting for each room. Other than that, there were a lot of amenities including FREE internet, DVD, Stereo, Flat Screen TV’s in each room, all with a cable connection. And everything was included, linens, towels and cookware. Thanks to the owners, Jeffrey and Sharda for the gracious hospitality and friendly chats.
