We've only been here three days so far and it's amazing! The pictures on VRBO do not do this house justice. The home owners have been equally amazing. In the short time we've been here we have managed to pester them a number of times. The quick and very helpful responses are above and beyond the call. The property is more then we had hoped for. Last night we watched the sun set from the deck twenty feet from the ocean, again... amazing! We will, more then likely, post another review when our stay is over.

Peace on Earth
We just spent an incredibly relaxing 10 days in Casey Key. I can't recommend enough how relaxing, peaceful and utterly idyllic this location was for all of us.We were 2 couples, 55+, with our 2 dogs. The home is situated on a very private beach, just a few steps from the house. I can count on 1 hand the number of people we saw walking by us on the beach during our stay. Between the beautiful weather, the wild life and the tranquil surf, we all thought we had died and gone to heaven! The home was immaculately clean and had everything imaginable in the fully-stocked kitchen, for recreation outdoors or some quiet reading in the pool area. The owners have covered it all! If I had 1 small criticism, it would be the beds. When you're older a good night's sleep is a must so sadly, it wasn't always easy to get a restful sleep. The mattresses seemed a little old, especially the 2nd bedroom. Despite that, the owner was a delight to deal with, very gracious and accommodating at all times. Casey Key is exquisite---come visit peace on Earth! You won't regret it!

The best praise I can provide is that I will return here as much as possible. Beautiful, Secure, Private and fully equipped. My sincere thanks to the owners for allowing me to share in this very special place.

What a wonderful place and a wonderful host! For months now, I have wanted to return to the site to let the owners know how grateful we were to have the opportunity to spend a few days in their lovely home and how kind they were to us. It made our son's time in Fla really special and we so appreciate how you went out of your way to help us locate the lost item! Thank you for sharing your home with us and we hope to return next year.

We could not have found the more perfect location or home. The owners were so accommodating and helpful in every way. The home is beautifully arranged, and well suited for teens and grandparents alike. Thank you for opening your home to us and helping us locate our lost item! We are eager to return next year.
Beachfront Tranquility At Its Finest!
We were exceptionally fortunate to spend the month of January enjoying the serenity of this extraordinary Casey Key home that’s truly a gem in the way of beachfront properties. The photos of the property do not do justice to the charm and comfort of this home – which offered outstanding views of the beach and spectacular sunsets over the gulf that were enjoyed from the lanai-enclosed pool area and the incredible raised deck located directly on the beach. The property’s setting on the north end of the island was lovely and afforded the charm of “old Florida” without any commercialization. In truth, the setting around the home and the beachfront was so private that we felt as though we were enjoying our own personal oasis. The locale was perfect for long walks along the beach, bike rides along Casey Key Road, kayaking, and just relaxing on the beach deck with a book while enjoying paradise and Mother Nature at her best! The home itself was immaculately clean and exceptionally well appointed (especially the gourmet kitchen) and we wanted for absolutely nothing in the way of kitchen, bath or recreation (pool, bikes, kayak) ‘essentials’ during our month long stay there. The owners of the property are truly special people who display the upmost hospitality and unassuming graciousness – qualities that they manifest from our first contact at booking to long after our departure from Casey Key. A heartfelt 'thanks' goes out to them for allowing us to be guests in their home. All in all - the owners and property provided an unsurpassed and memorable vacation experience.

Perfect Casey Key stay
Our family enjoyed our stay at the Casey Key house tremendously. It was a perfect set up for our crew. The owners made sure we were well taken care of . We can't wait to be back next year!
Simply Amazing !
Words cannot express the comfort of staying at this home. Everything was well thought out and nothing was missed. I have stayed in several homes in the past years and this one blew them all away. Thank you to the owners for all they provide to you. If you are looking for somewhere private and luxurious with a beautiful beach and pool, this is the house for you. Cannot wait to come back and stay here again.

Paradise on Casey Key
This is our 2nd time to this property and after staying at various spots on the Key over the last 20 years, this is by far our very favorite. Beautiful beach, beautiful home with all the vacation amenities. Thanks again to the owners for making us feel so very welcome. We will be back.

This place far surpassed all of our expectations! Amenities, condition / cleanliness, accessibility, supplies - all as advertised and more. The home was the perfect solution to our small family reunion, and particularly well-suited for my disabled mother. The rental rate was a bit more than what I was originally looking for - but definitely worth it...great VALUE! The house is located on the desirable north end of Casey Key - private yet easily accessed via the north bridge. The beach is extremely private and great for viewing the passing manatee and dolphin. We highly recommend the Casey Key Beach House, and hope to return in years to come!
