I remember when most motels on Florida beaches were Mom & Pop places. Over the years, age and hurricanes have washed away most of them. Most have been replaced by Hi-rise motels. A Beach Retreat still offers the charm and privacy of a more quiet time. The rooms are what you would expect for a place of this age. However,...

Immaculate with a sense of community. We stayed in cozy #26, perfect for the two of us and easy walk to the beach and drum circle. Great common area with beautiful Gulf view. Two different family members that we were visiting asked us how we found the place; they too were impressed.

I absolutely loved this place and am already trying to figure out how to go back. I was in #33 on the bayside - beach is right across the street and the unit is spacious and has everything you need. The beach is beautiful, great for swimming, shell collecting or relaxing. The public beach is close and they have activities...

We have stayed for a few years in a row now and will probably book again for next year. Nice to be near public beach for drum circle, always an experience and close enough to...

This was our third straight stay, second on the beach side. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Room is clean, and just what is needed for a wonderful beach stay. Have already booked the same room for 2018, and can't wait.

Visited in March 2017 for family coming down from Michigan. Very well located with easy access to surrounding restaurants and attractions. Located right on the beach with pleasant easy access to beach area. To cold for us to use the beach but sand and surf area was very active. We stayed in the NW building and room was very small....

Everyone was helpful and friendly. Our unit was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. The beach is great and only steps away. We stayed here last year and this year for two weeks. Next year we have reservations for a month.

I have been coming to Casey Key for years and always wanted to stay at A Beach Retreat. It was worth the wait! From the friendly front office staff to the outstanding housekeeping crew, this place is top notch!

Amazing little get away! Peaceful, relaxing, awesome views...and a steps away from the beach. Most enjoyable experience I've had in a very long time from start to finish! Clean and friendly environment! Must see for yourself!
