About stephen j forman
We have lived on Casey Key since 2005 a family residence. We are pet friendly since we have two very friendly dogs a whippet named Shadow who is coming up on his second birthday in Dec. Moxie is 13 years and a small terrier. Beach a few steps away and in the summer just like the Carribbean; quite and peaceful most days here. We are retired and enjoy our peace island.

First I must say the owners were very cordial but this property is not as pictured on the website, the couch was blue and itchy and every time we sat down we slid off, the rug was not a rug it was a something movers use to cover furniture. The walls were so thin we could hear everything and every step they took so we could not take naps during the day and a night you could hear them snore. They had a death in the family so all the family was in town which intensified the noise level. I told him we could leave early if he would reimburse for the days we did not use and he said that it was too much trouble so we still left early due to not having rest. I did tell the owner about the noise but there was nothing he could do. The outside area was also not as pictured they built a small area fenced in for us so the dogs could have their space , the owners need to update the pictures and state that the walls are thin. If I would have known I would have not rented here and he was the most expensive out of all the rentals we have stayed this year.
Sorry the guest wasn't satisfied and we did have a death in the family so there was extra company. we did purchase a new sofa but it was cloth material. I was not told about an uncomfortable feel to it; may just replace it with a different material. Snoring was a visitor for just one night.
Wonderful location to relax
My family stayed five nights at this property. We wondered if we'd be okay with not being right on the beach. The beach was so close that it wasn't an issue. The property owner was so nice to work with and even offered bikes for us to ride during our stay. The private beach was lovely and so were the homeowners. We saw dolphins and manatee while swimming. An outdoor shower was great for getting the sand off. Casey Key Rd is a cozy spot for walking or riding bikes to see all the lovely homes. My granddaughters rented jet skis one day that was close by. Had great seafood at a local restaurant in Venice that was only 10 minutes away.
We plan to be back!
