Guest Reviews

We love watching the waves from our room and gathering with other guests on the beach or the balcony at sunset and toasting to another perfect day spent at our beach paradise - the Island House!

Coral Springs, Fl

I went to the Island house with my daughter in Feb. It was so great! I had a great time and so did my daughter. Out in the water with the other lady guest was a fun time, getting to know everyone and just enjoying our day. This is the kind of place I want to go back to and I will soon. Thank you to the staff also for making us feel so welcome.

This a wonderful place! It is an older, nostalgic building that has been wonderfully updated! Right on a beautiful beach and close to some great restaurants. I was a little worried about sleeping on a murphy bed, but it was great. The mattress was super comfortable and it was very easy to pull it down at night. If I vacation in that area again, I will definitely be staying here!

Spent a week at Island House with my sister from Iowa to celebrate her retirement Jan. 2017 and loved it so much we are coming back in Dec. 2017 for my retirement celebration! So relaxing and the location perfect! Jill

This is the perfect place to do nothing. My life is hectic and i rarely have the time to just relax. Kicking back with a good book on the balcony overlooking the gulf is just what the doctor ordered to help unwind. The rooms are nice and very reasonably priced for being right on the beach. The staff is exceptional without being intrusive. This was our second trip here and you can be sure we'll be back again.

I found my beach house. I was looking for an economic, yet pretty place to stay. I found it! Is like a home away at the beach. The place is clean, smells good. Stacy is wonderful. Rented the small hotel room with my daughter, and two grandsons. Everything in the room is perfectly accommodated. I will definitely go back again. I would recommend to wear beach shoes there are billions of shells. I can tell people now that I have a Beach House :)

The water and resort are both beautiful! We loved getting to know the staff and the other guests as well. It is wonderfully maintained and very clean. We even got to see a baby sea turtle! Quite a memorable vacation!

This place is where it's at. Staff is friendly, rooms are very clean and have a great ambiance to them. Located right on the beach. Price is right. I always look forward to coming back each year

Love this place! We have been here many times over the years and it never disappoints! Awesome family owned treasure. Thanks to the fantastic owners for their fabulous hospitality and for sharing this beautiful vacation spot that makes you seem like you’re home and on vacation.

I always look forward to my return to the Island House, waking in the morning, and walking out my door to enjoy a mug full of coffee with my toes in the sand! Thanks to the management for keeping this spot simple and serene.

We enjoyed the sunsets together with all the folks at the Island House, sharing restaurant, places of interest, and activities to check out. My husband joined another guest for a round of golf while we "girls" enjoyed the gulf - what a win win!!! The surf, the sand, the sunsets, and the clean comfortable rooms, what a find the Island House is!!!

The island House is “our special place”. It is very quaint and inviting. Listening the the ocean at night with the screened patio door open is so relaxing. We love the small details such as: really nice lounge chairs they let you carry down to the beach, the fact that from the moment you step out of your room you are on the sandy beach. The staff are so friendly and treat you like family. We met a few people and enjoyed drinks and corn hole. The restaurants such as The Breakfast Cottage in Nokomis and Luna’s in Venice are favorites of ours. We have never found a place to go more special to us than the Island House. It was the vacation we got to rest and unwind in peace and serenity and it holds a special place in our heart. Can’t wait to visit again in October! Thanks Island House! 6/1/2020

We recently made our second trip to the IH, only this time we took the entire family. From the kids to their 88yo great-grandmother, everyone loved it. With all the places to choose from in Florida, why do we choose the IH? Well... not just because of the beautiful, relaxing, quaint, tranquil setting. Not just because of the gorgeous beach and crystal blue water. Not just because the rooms are cozy, homey and immaculate. But because it is our "little piece of heaven" and the management could not be more welcoming and accommodating. The ONLY problem with the IH is having to leave!

Close friends of ours have gone to the Island House twice a year, every year, for many years. When nearing retirement in 2006, we decided to try it for a couple of weeks in the winter. Now we are beginning our 11th year. We go every year for two months and we consider it a home away from home. Some of the other residents, the Managers and the Owners, are among our best friends. We LOVE it!

Island House is a nostalgic vacation spot reminiscent of the 1950's style of architecture. For over 10 years now we have loved our stays, enjoying the owners, management, friendly guests, spic and span rooms, and a beautiful beach with its shells and sharks teeth. The planned dinners, the impromptu gatherings watching the sunset (hoping to see the elusive "Green Flash") are just a few of the things that make Island House special to us. No high buildings are built on Casey Key unlike other islands. One can borrow a book from their "library", sunbathe, sleep on their lounge chairs, or talk to the fine people that stay at the Island House. Whatever you desire…solitude or companionship. We have made so many wonderful friends from all over the US and Europe. It is an unique adventure. Thanks so much Carol, Don, Staci and Shelby.

Pat and I have visited the Island House for over 30 Years, and have made many friends while staying at our vacation hideaway. The photos show you the magnificent views from this wonderful and unique part of the Gulf Coast. The Island House is our idea of peace and tranquility and the perfect holiday.

The Island House is our Get Away Paradise. It has it all: Friends, Fabulous water with Sunsets, Convenience to stores and just plain Peace and Quiet. We love BBQ-ing out back or just walking to the local restaurants. The rooms have everything you need and the most wonderful views . We never leave without reserving our room for the next trip!! We try to keep it a secret so that rooms will be available for us, but it is hard to not tell our friends and family about it!!
