About James Smedley

A transplant from Dayton Ohio, I purchased four beachfront condos over twenty years ago. I have been a professional landlord and host for over thirty years. My goal is to provide superior accommodations and service to promote and grow my business. I have nothing but flattering reviews!

Mike said: " This place is so amazing I had to extend the visit! Jim is a great host I would strongly recommend a stay at his place! Shucker's restaurant with the Atlantic Ocean as your view, you just can't beat that! Hutchinson Island is very peaceful, quiet town and the ideal spot for relaxation. Look forward to visiting again."

Teresa wrote: "Jim was the perfect host, met us at the resort, gave my husband and I a tour of the resort and provided his number for assistance. He also provided info on the area with a list of things to do! I would highly recommend staying here! Room was very clean, quiet, washer/dryer in the building, steps to the beach and heated pool! Shuckers restaurant right next door, along with others close by. Lovely stay, thank you Jim! I will be sure to recommend your place to friends and family.



James Smedley purchased this studio in 1995

Great Ocean Front Property

  • 3 of 5

The property was great as it is directly on the Ocean and has a warm outdoor pool. The "condo" is actually like a small hotel room, which is well maintained and adequate for a one or two week stay. The proximity to Shuckers on the Beach (directly connected) is a nice feature of the property. Overall I had a pleasant stay and would return.

Location Location Location!

  • 5 of 5

This unit was extremely clean, comfortable, quiet and everything I expected and more! I stayed at a resort the first 7 days and was also on the beach. This unit was much closer to the beach and the complex was much much less busy. I went from my unit to the heated pool and the beach numerous times and I was the only one in the elevator and in the hall. Schuckers is connected through the hall way, a great place.

All in All a very nice 6 days!

Owner's Response: We appreciate nice reviews! We are told the Studio would appear larger if we had a queen bed instead of a king size bed. Then they say they LOVE the huge bed! LOL We may have to take a vote on the bed size!LOL Thanks again!

Terrible experience. Small and outdated room. Stay away!

  • 1 of 5

This listing is inaccurate, the owner uses “smart” tricks in the description and images to attract travelers. This room is super small, you can hardly move around, but the owner uses wide angle lenses to create pictures that enhance the perspective (perspective distortion).

The bathroom was probably done in the 1970s and never updated, and the view from the (tiny) window is on the ugly parking. Any cheap motel room is larger and cleaner and has better amenities that this ridiculous “studio”.

When we arrived and saw how depressive and outdated this room is, we left after a few sleepless hours (afraid that rats will come around).

We think travelers should have a clear picture of what they can expect here: an outdated, depressive, small room within the owner’s condo. This guy tricks people into renting his place and refuses to take responsibility. Shame on him!

Owner's Response: With 82 consecutive Five Star Ratings raving about the Charm and cleanliness of our rental and accuracy of our descriptions, reasonable travelers will let the unbiased reviews speak for themselves. I won't dignify this silly psychotic review with a response.

Perfect room for a short stay!

Owner's Response: Jennifer, Thanks for the nice review! Depending on a particular guest's lifestyle, having a full service oceanfront restaurant featuring an economical breakfast buffet and entertainment 5 nights a week plus a lovely laundry makes our Studio perfect for longterm stays. We've had guests stay for one, two or three months or more and love the beach front lifestyle. Thanks again!
