Book this house! You will not be disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

-House was remarkably decorated and stunning!

-Neighborhood was very clean and family friendly.

-A 10 minute walk to the beach!

-Close enough to be to restaurants in minutes but far away enough that the beach by the house is not busy.

-Remarkably nice owners with quick response time.

-Bring bath towels!

-I would highly recommend this house to anyone!

This house was stunning! My group of friends and I visited the area for the jeep festival. The location of the house was so convenient. It was close enough to the attractions to be only minutes away, yet far enough out that when we went down to the private beach, it wasn't too busy at all. The beach is just a quick walk from the house! The closest vehicle entrance is just a neighborhood or two over. The neighborhood was extremely clean and family friendly! We had a group of 12 and we fit very comfortably in the home. The beds were incredibly comfortable and we never felt crammed in the house. The owners were very quick to respond and helpful in every aspect. I would highly recommend this amazing home to anyone! My only suggestion to renters is to definitely bring your own bath towels - don't over look that statement in the contract! Basic bath towels (the cheaply made kind) were $8 a piece at The Big Store, which is the only store within miles of the location to purchase supplies. So pack smart!

Coastal Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Castaway Key over Easter weekend. The huge views of the shore and sand and then the stars and moon at night were terrific. There was plenty of room to accommodate our group of sixteen. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals and the kids had fun playing with the assortment of board games and games. The swings were a big hit with the beautiful weather we enjoyed, as was the spacious outdoor balcony and patio.

  • 5 of 5

Our overall experience was excellent. We all felt right at home. Easy access and a quick walk to the beach was a plus. The house was comfortable and beachy. We had everything we needed to make our stay special. We plan to rent again in the future.

Thanks to the owners for their hands-on attention to details.

Best family get away a cabin can offer!!

  • 5 of 5

This was mine and my families second time to stay at the Castaway Key and it did not disappoint again. We laughed, sipped coffee on the front deck, swung in the new swings they hung downstairs, shell searched, and enjoyed the beach in the afternoons when the tide was far out and the sun was setting. My grandmother would have loved this cabin, which is why we book it. Thank you again for opening your cabin to us.

Fabulous Home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Castaway Key! The openness of the kitchen-dining-living room is perfect for family game time/movie time. Unlike other homes we've stayed in the kitchen was well- stocked with plates, silverware, serving utensils, glasses, knives, etc. It made me feel like I was staying with friends. There are ceiling fans throughout the house. Plenty of seating on the deck/balcony is lovely for early morning & breezy evenings.
