    Michael and I have been coming to Turtle Crawl Inn for 5 years. We are so thankful that we found this little gem. The staff is wonderful…and they know us…which I find charming! Love our villa and love this beach! We will be vacationing at Turtle Crawl for the next 25 years…and if I can talk Michael into it…maybe a wedding! LOL Can’t wait to see it in a couple of week!!!!!

    We decided to spend Christmas at the Beach this year but I was worried about the chance of arriving late on Christmas Eve and how the check in process would be handled. “No problem”, Rebecca had everything organized and ready should we arrive late. She even researched what restaurants would be open on Christmas Day and also provided me with the information about the grocery store nearby that would provide on-line ordering and delivery service and she said they would make sure the groceries got put into our unit so the food would be there when we arrived late on Christmas Eve. From the very first contact I made with Rebecca (cold call on the phone) all the way through the entire week, this property and the staff are outstanding! Always tidying up the common areas, etc. It was the most wonderful Christmas we have had in a long time and THANK YOU especially to the staff at Turtle Crawl Inn. We will be back again!

    My family enjoyed the Turtle Crawl Inn over the Labor Day weekend. The hurricane stayed on the other side of the state. Staff members efficient
    and friendly. I am sure my family member living close by will return again. Thank you. Jan Marriott

    Our family is local to Orlando and we had the privilege to stay at Turtle Crawl the weekend of May 10-13th. We absolutely LOVED it!! Clean and extremely accommodating! We are already planning on returning in a few months. Thank you all so much! 11 out of 10!

      Thanks for your nice comment Jeremy! We’re glad you had a pleasant time at Turtle Crawl Inn!

    Enjoyed our second year here! Spent almost two weeks last February…great weather…and returned this year in March for about ten days. Weather not quite as nice, but still loved the location and atmosphere as before. We plan to return again next year! Great staff…wonderful restuarants, and easy access to groceries, Sarasota and other community activities. Wonderful sunsets. Fairly quiet location which we like. Condos spotless, and any amenity provided if able. Grilled out two nights which was a nice change of pace …just home tonight, and miss it already!

      Thanks for your comments Diane! So glad you enjoyed your stay!

    We stayed a couple of weeks and found it very difficult to leave. We were in Unit #203. It was a lovely one bedroom that was spacious, well-equipped and decorated attractively. The linens were plush and plentiful. Ample kitchenware, plus we used the gas grills that were provided next to a picnic shelter right on the beach. Very clean, comfortable beds, comfortable furniture, good wifi, flat screen TV with cable and very quiet. The building had only 20 units. Beach chairs, a sun umbrella and rain umbrellas were provided. There was a good swimming pool. We enjoyed lovely sunsets from our second floor balcony. Long beach walks started our mornings. The white sand beach stretched about 4 miles in either direction. We have stayed in the area numerous times before and regret we did not know of this place sooner. We will stay at this place the next time we return to the area.

      Thanks for staying at Turtle Crawl Inn this year! Looking forward to your return visit.

    We stayed at the Turtle Crawl Inn Resort for 2 nights in November 2018. It is a beautiful place close to the beach, but we couldn’t connect to wifi.
    We were in condo #61.

  9. Dennis Mead on October 15, 2018 at 4:10 pm

    We were very happy with the Turtle Crawl Inn. Everything was very comfortable and clean. Being right there on the beach was wonderful and access up and down the coast easy. The only complaint would be that the WiFi was a little weak.

  10. Susa Swanson on October 9, 2018 at 9:18 am

    We have stayed in Turtle Crawl a number of times over the past 5 years, staying in the Tower Condos. All these Condos have great views over the ocean
    and are the best place to see fabulous sunsets. The location is quiet and right on the beach, sunbeds and umbrellas are provided and there is a decent
    pool to relax by too. The Receptionists are very friendly, helpful and efficient at their job.

  11. Diane Armbruster on February 20, 2018 at 10:00 pm

    Loved our 12 days spent there! We upgraded from efficiency apt. to the towers our second day…much nicer! Beautiful gulf views and sunsets! Staff super! Hope to return next year for same extended stay!

    Meine Frau und ich haben im Oktober 2017 eine Suite für 3 Tage bewohnt, die unsere Erwartung jedoch total enttäuscht hat.
    Für immerhin 557.00 Dollar, also 186.00 pro Tag , erhielten wir mit der “Suite 63” ein dunkles Loch in der Art eines kleinen
    Motelzimmers mit minimaler Kücheneinrichtung.
    Die teilweise defekte Beleuchtung konnte das Zimmer kaum erhellen und die veraltete Klimaanlage war nachts störend laut.
    Geschirr, Bestecke und Töpfe waren bunt zusammengesucht und von miserabler Qualität.
    Positiv zu erwähnen sind jedoch die ordentlichen und kostenlosen Strandliegen und Sonnenschirme.
    Aber das genügt nicht, um diese Adresse zu empfehlen.

    My wife and I spent two weeks in Feb. 2017 at Turtle Crawl. We booked Unit 61 as it was available at our late booking. The location and personnel were wonderful.
    Unit 61 was very much in need OD maintenance. Furniture drawers fell out of dresser, refrigerator freeze had 3-4 inch ice block on top which made it impossible to store anything. Ice cubes took 2 days to freeze. Toilet took 5 minutes to refill. Box spring looked like something from a castaway shop.
    I emphasize, the location, personnel and area were super! Some minor fine tuning and general maintenance would greatly enhance the unit we stayed in.

  14. Glenn Elmer on February 8, 2015 at 7:37 am

    We just stayed at unit #204 for the second time. They just put in a beautiful new kitchen and appliances. the views are simply stunning! Can’t wait to go back next year!

    We were able to stay at the Turtle Crawl Inn Resort for a week in November. My wife and I loved it! Our condo (#103) was very clean, beautifully decorated and comfortable. We especially enjoyed being able to walk right out onto the beach and watched several amazing sunsets. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We highly recommend this resort.
