If you fish you'll love it here, we don't, however enjoy watching everyone fish off the dock. Our favorite is every morning, make a cup of coffee, head down to the deck, sit and enjoy the boats...

A bunch of my fishing buddies and I stayed there for a few days in May 2013 and had a great stay. Quaint little place, a bit old, but clean and well kept. We really enjoyed our stay. I will stay there again. Walking distance to a great seafood place and bar. The manager/owner is very friendly and accomodating.

You can walk to a few good restaurants and the Everglades are just a short drive. I personally had a blast fishing from their dock. Got some live shrimp down...

The room was very nice and was everything we needed it to be. We stayed 2 nights, then our 3rd night in Florida was at Rodeway Inn and Suites in Ft. Lauderdale...
