Round House on the bay
4/5 stars
We enjoyed our stay at the round house. The view was great. It could have been much better if there was comfortable seating on the deck to sit and enjoy the view. The outdoor furniture is worn and no comfortable seating anywhere outside. The beds were okay but not great. The house was clean and for the most part in good condition. We did have to call maintenance and they came out very quickly. The Round House is a nice place to stay if you enjoy being out away from everything. The main downfall is the stairs. It is not good for elderly or disabled. There is only one neighbor and the house is very close. Otherwise, nice place.

Roundhouse Retreat
3/5 stars
The property was Beautiful! So relaxing to be there. Pros: Plenty of room - large rooms - not cramped Large kitchen. We never ran into each other while cooking Plenty of cooking utensils Large living/dining area. This was so nice Flooring is easy to clean There is a nice large dust mop for the large areas Great pier for fishing A great blue heron was a daily visitor Large outside area to explore the habitat Plenty of outside seating House was clean except for the dog hairs in the placemats The house is structurally sound. Plenty of bath towels Great views in every room Plenty of silverware PLENTY of pretty plates/bowls. This was great since I don't prefer paper plates Plenty of pillows Washer/dryer worked great. We did 2-3 loads per day Fishing all you want. Cons: Biggest Con: No safe swimming!! Somehow, I didn't see that there are alligators and sharks near the shore. Since I rented this place so my grandsons could swim any time they wanted, this was a huge disappointment. Oven doesn't heat accurately - AT ALL. I cooked a pan of brownies for 1 1/2 hours and they still weren't done. Should have taken 20 minutes. Oven door doesn't shut all the way unless you stand there and hold it closed Pans for cooking are in horrible shape. The only decent ones were a dutch oven, a stock pot, and a 1 quart sauce pan. Beds are SO squeaky! Mattresses need to be replaced. The flooring in the house is a bit weird. I'm sure the plan was a cheap total replacement but you get what you pay for. The flooring is curling some. Some guest didn't put the water pad up correctly and it is moldy The posts in the water near the pier prohibited successful fishing out towards the bay since the fishing lines could get wrapped around the posts when reeling in a fish. You should cut those off. Bottom line: We won't be returning.

Toundhouse on the Bay review
5/5 stars
Had a wonderful trip and really enjoyed the private location of the Roundhouse on the bay. It was very windy so we didn’t get to enjoy being outside, but inside was very bright and roomy with lots of windows so we enjoyed being inside. Only a few negatives…two bedrooms were advertised as separate bedrooms that shared a bath. In reality, the bedrooms are not separate. One bedroom cannot be entered or exited without going through the other bedroom and the shared bath is in that bedroom so the people in the other bedroom have to enter the bath by going into that other bedroom. Not a good arrangement! Also, the bathrooms ALL need handicap bars in the walk in showers and bathtub. All mattresses should probably be replaced…not very comfortable. On the positive side the entire house was open and airy and offered lots of visiting area. The kitchen was very roomy and well required. The beach and the dock were very nice. This house could accommodate a large family easily.
