Wow! This was more than we expected! We were looking for a place like this that could give us the cabin-experience we wanted. On our us-road trip, this is a place to remember. The cabins are located in a small city with almost no population. To bad we never got to meet the owner of this amazing place because we...

We stayed here not really expecting much as it's such a small town but the views from the balcony made it well worth while. While drinking tea in the morning I watched alligators float by and a dolphin swimming along the waters edge looking for fish, that made the stay one to remember. The place itself was a bit tired...

I have been fishing in the Everglades since 1981. I have stayed at almost every hotel and motel in Everglades City, and River Wilderness is my favorite. But, people should understand where they are going and what to expect. This is Everglades City, Florida - population 400! It is a small fishing village at the Northern end of the Everglades...

Look, if your seeking a high end hotel experience, this is not the place. But if your seeking a fun, inexpensive and accommodating spot then give this place a try. Right in the middle of this quaint and sleepy town, there is some attractions within walking distance. Since this is the stone crab capital, we love to get some at...

This place was absolutely the most awful place I have ever visited on our May trips to Florida. It was very grubby and dated. It was sold to us as a villa, it was really a shed on stilts, the photos made the place out to be more than it actually was. The lady who managed the place wasn't pleasant...

Dear Mr S., I am so sorry you did not like our villa. Believe you are very critical and mistaken with your comments that we are grubby and like a shed on stilts. We are definitely exactly like our pictures show. We are not Marco Island quality like the Marriott or such. Everglades City is a small fishing community. We...

This place has clearly seen better days, but it was comfy enough and the land at reception was very lovely. She let us check in early and gave us loads of information of the area. There are also lots of facilities here. You get a bedroom, bathroom, full kitchen, dining area and lovely back porch. You also get free use...

was here for one night years ago and haven't been back because our villa was so dusty and dirty I couldn't stop sneezing and coughing. The view over the water is nice, the one decent restaurant in town is now out of business, but this is a great place for taking pictures . I don't know if this place "cleaned...

Incredible views from the inside and out with a rich but rustic feel. Including all the comforts of home and with the great rates and near by amenities, its a great place for any type vacationers from families, couples or even for a solo getaway to be far from the everyday life.

Stayed over only one night but wished it was longer. Very quiet and relaxing place. Swimming pool and fitness center not right on site as I first thought, but it is very close. I will say the kitchen cupboards and drawers could have been cleaned better, but we were a drop in. We had no reservations and,was able to get...

The only good thing about this place is the location. Everything needs ripping out burning and starting again. Proper run down and the price does not reflect it either. Turned up early having travelled from Key Largo, did not expect to check in but wanted to let reception know we had arrived and would like to know where to have...
