Apt 5 right on the beach! Bright, light, well equipped, quirky and on the most amazing sunset beach! We enjoyed 2 wonderful days and nights but wished for longer! Tekla and Robert are a delight and so helpful! Casey Key is a little oasis of tranquillity. We definitely recommend and hope to return!

Dear TeddingtonGap, Apt #5 is indeed "quirky"!! We are tickled that you enjoyed your brief stay with us and truly appreciate your review and recommendation. Hopefully, your travels will bring you back to us one day.

This was one of the neatest places I have stayed. It was beautiful and functional. They had hooks! When at the beach, those come in so handy! We stayed in cottage # 4 on the older side. It had a large step up, so it had a treehouse or cottage feel to it. It was cozy, yet plenty of room....

Dear AshevilleGypsy, We are very glad that you enjoyed your first stay with us. As innkeepers, we never know in advance what amenities will most please a guest, but, it was with a big smile that I read your comment about the hooks in your cottage.

This was our third visit. We stayed in the north villa we love this apartment with its own enclosed area over looking the moorings. The apartment was spotless when we arrived.

Thank you Tekla and Robert for our third great stay. What can we say, other than everything again has been perfect, our apartment has had a "facelift" since our visit in 2014 when it was already perfect, now even now more perfect! We have already booked for 2016 and can't wait!

Spent a quick 3 day getaway here before thanksgiving and can't say enough about what a great little spot the beachcomber is! We had a beachfront room ground floor that was in effect a 1 bedroom condo in a large home converted into 3 condo units. It had a full kitchen. Immaculate is an insufficient word to describe how clean...

We have recently returned from the Beachcomber.

This was our 4th trip to the Beachcomber, and it was the 4th straight homerun. I have never stayed in a more sparkling clean apartment (Gulf). It is superbly decorated, and very comfy. The outside, covered patio is large and inviting. We were approximately 25 yards from the beach, and 100 yards from the Gulf of Mexico. The owners, Tekla,...

It is very hard to describe to others the loveliness of this place because, unless you are of the mindset to know what it is you want, maybe you just won't get it. The Beachcomber on Casey Key is for people who are happy in their own skin and do not need 'touristy' distractions but, that said, it will also...

We continue to be amazed by the attention to detail, the way each unit is furnished and decorated to make guests feel as though they are home, and the overall cleanliness of the entire Beachcomber resort.
