Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

What a joy to find this piece of heaven. Our escape from the ice cold winter of Michigan led us here!

Steve was there to greet us and we immediately felt at home. Our cottage was clean and fresh and had all we needed to cook with. Our neighbors were so friendly and invited us to join in the evenings festivities. Enjoying cookouts, music and great conversation.

Plenty to do and not far from many destinations. Beach across street with safe crossing lights. Laundry facility on property. BBQ and patio with lovely setting. Even our dog loved laying on our porch soaking up the sun! Never bored with so much to do! Looking forward to seeing everyone again in Feb!!

pleasant place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Pieces of Eight was just what I was looking-for - an economical place to stay with the basic needs for home-style living. The motels in the under $100.00/day category are mostly dumps and you only get a bed(s) and a bathroom.

I have visited this area many times over the years and places like this along the beach are pushing their prices too high.

Our accommodations were small, but clean and we had everything we needed there,: a bed for two in a bedroom and a pull-out couch in the living/dining area. The fridge and stove worked and we had all the dishes, pots and pans we could use as well as small appliances. The TV was small but where you sit is so close it doesn't matter :-) and there was a working PVR there so that I could record any shows I wanted to watch later. The two air conditioners worked well and were more than enough to cool-off this there were three ceiling fans to help move the air. Water pressure was good.

I liked the courtyard and the shade that the trees provided. There was a BBQ available in the second courtyard, along with a table and chairs....unfortunately it was so hot the week we were there that I couldn't bear to use them!

The only thing that I suggest is that Steve have some ventilation installed in the bathroom, to pull-out all that moisture from people having a shower. That will help the a/c unit in the bedroom do its job without working 'over-time'.

Owner Steve was around every day working around the place and always available for help or just a talk. If something like a light bulb needs replacing when Steve is not around and you don't mind doing it yourself, just go to the laundry room and get one; there are supplies in there.

It was handy having the beach right across the street. There are few good restaurants within a reasonable walking distance or a less-than-five-minute drive, and two really good places for ice cream.

So, if you don't require all-new hotel-style furniture and amenities or a large living space, Pieces of Eight is a good place to stay at a reasonable price.

Relaxing Get-away

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 4 days, 3 nights at this charming little get away. It is so convenient to just about everything. Just cross the street an you have the beach, go a few blocks and you are at John's Pass. Besides all that the 2 apartments that we occupied had an adjourning door. Both were extremely clean, neat and met all our needs. Also the courtyard at night with its lights was very enjoyable. Thank you Steve for the pleasant experience. You will be hearing from me again.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My family (wife and 2 kids) came down just after Christmas with another family. The place was affordable and very clean. Found this place online and liked its location and quintessential Florida decor. We like the outdoors so we appreciated the following about the place:

Steve provided our families with Kayaks (located on site)- we walked them 1/2 block down to the bayside dock and put in for our day trips out in the Intercoastal Waterways. Just amazing trips!

Also, he offered the use of several fishing poles in case I wanted to take the kids- which I did, but didn't catch much off the docks.

In the early morning and evenings we went to the beach - a block in the opposite direction, or road bikes along the beachfront path (Steve happened to have a bike we could use, and I'll just add here, his character is evident in his desire to accommodate others- he is definitely in the right business being both kind and considerate).

Despite the heavy traffic known to the Florida beaches, we felt as if we were staying in a secluded and peaceful neighborhood.

Apartment: We stayed in the upstairs apartments. Both were very clean and stocked with everything you'd ever need. There is a coin-op laundry area on the premises and a Publix shopping store just down the road.

Upon returning from the beach we were able to rinse off near the patio/grilling area. It seats around 10. The kids played corn hole and other games while we cooked and socialized with the friendly tenants.

The kids also liked to look through the shells near the alley (very low traffic area) and lizards around the small decorative pool area in the courtyard.

There were plenty of amenities, beach toys, chairs, etc. to make our stay relaxing, affordable and fun.

To top it all off, Steve and Belinda were two of the kindest hosts I have ever meet. We can't wait to come back and visit!

Thank you for providing our families with a great place to stay and memories that will last a lifetime!!

Wonderful Stay! Memories Made.

  • 5 of 5

Arrived on Christmas Day after a very long drive. Found Steve and his wife working hard to make sure everything was perfect for us.

So cozy and perfect for our needs. Across the street from the beach. Very convenient to Johns Pass and everything we needed. We will definitely return and highly recommend.

Out of date DUMP!

  • 1 of 5

This place is an absolute terrible place to consider for your vacation. It is out of date, the landlords are nothing but a headache and the permanent tenants are loud, obnoxious, drunks. Not family friendly and it isn't as close to the water as advertised. It might be cheap, but that is exactly what you pay for, CHEAP! Don't book your vacations here!
