Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Flip Flop cottage at Beach Retreat! Kathy is a wonderful host, and is very attentive to the needs of the guests, and is so friendly. The place is clean, perfect for guests to relax and enjoy, not needing to worry about anything - the place is well stocked! Love the proximity of the pool and beach. Highly recommended!

The Flip Flop house was a perfect house. It had plenty of room, was very clean. The location to the beach was awesome. The pool was great. Having chairs for the beach was a wonderful bonus!

Beautiful house in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Flip Flop Inn for about 6 weeks and enjoyed every single day of it! The house is located in a very quiet closed cottage community and just a few steps away from the ocean and the beautiful beach. The house was in excellent condition when we arrived and is fully equipped. Whatever one needs in the kitchen or somewhere else/ I am sure you find it. The place is tastefully decorated, well maintained and was spotlessly clean. TV, internet etc. worked well. Due to the unnatural cold winter in Florida this year we had some troubles with the heating at the beginning but the property manager Kathy was very helpful in adjusting the AC and fans.

We took endless strolls along the beaches; several restaurants (Pompano Joe's, Captn Dave's etc) are within walking distance and the walkway along the Scenic Gulf Drive is perfect for jogging, cycling etc.

In a nutshell: a perfect place for escaping the winter or enjoying the summer- be it for a short or long term stay. We would definitely come back and think that the place is very good value for money.
