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.

This little bit of heaven was perfect for the two of us! So inviting when we walked in!

  • 5 of 5

The studio was so inviting when we walked in—just what we were looking for! Right on the beach and next to Shuckers!! We couldn’t ask for more! Loved that we were connected by a hallway directly to the restaurant. The bed was very comfortable and we had everything we needed for our long weekend: fridge, microwave, plates and silverware, etc! This was fantastic for our long weekend getaway! Jim was so accommodating. Met us as soon as we arrived and showed us the room and outside areas. The pool was lovely and everything so nice and tidy! What a great time! We hope to go back again!!!

Very good!

  • 5 of 5

Yes it’s a “studio” so it will be small! The owner was very accommodating! We were only in the room to sleep which is what happens anywhere we stay! We will stay again! Thank you for the whelk casing and I left you a Shark’s Eye!

Small but clean.

  • 3 of 5

Room is very very small, but it was clean. "Stay on the Beach" is a little deceiving as it is a tiny room in the back of the condo looking out to the parking lot and road. Even though we didn't spend too much time in the room, the TV was small and you could only watch it from bed because there are no comfortable chairs to lounge in. Jim was very pleasant and accommodating, but make sure to bring your own coffee and personal items for the bathroom. No extras are provided.

Owner's Response: WOW! You don't give a lady free coffee when she demands it and you get a bad review!!LOL. Well, let's get started.....Our ad and pics are 100% accurate but ONLY if you actually READ it!LOL *We provide shampoo and shower gel but everyone brings their own. We also have all pillows, linens, towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella and boggie board. *We decided against coffee because there are 1000's of preferences. *"Small TV"!!! Who goes to the beach to watch TV??LOL It's a 35", sorry. *The Resort IS on the beach.... take the elevators and it's two minutes to the warm sand. *The Studio is NOT "in the back" of the building....In beach condos, half the units face the road and the other half toward the beach. Law of physicsLOL *It's a view of gorgeous Intercoastal sunsets, but, you can focus on the cars in the parking lot if you wish. *The Studio is the size of a standard motel room but has a huge king size bed that makes it look smaller but this is the first insulting "tiny" I've gotten! *Sorry guys...It's hard to get a $1500.00 a night palatial condo with a an ocean view for $57.00 a night!LOL *Most people LOVE our place, come back and refer their friends. You will too! Bon Voyage!!!

Great spot right on the ocean

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect spot for my husband and I to stay for a family reunion close by. We didn't need much more than the room offered. It was great to be able to have coffee and walk on the beach every morning. The room was clean, quiet and private. It was nice to have access to the beach chairs and the pool and grounds were awesome.

Owner's Response: Confusing. The ad was "accurate", the room "perfect", "clean", "private", "quiet", etc" but only four stars?!
