Fall in love at the Hibiscus House 

Bob and Colleen fell in love with this area after spending family vacations on Captiva Island. You will, too!  


Housing five rooms it’s the perfect size so that all guests receive the extra care in supplying a home away from home feel. Bob and Colleen have been known to say, “Arrive as guests, leave as friends.”

The Londoner Bed & Breakfast

The Londoner Bed & Breakfast & Tea Rooms 

304 15th Street W, Bradenton, Fl 34205 

Tel: 941-74-4981 

Another World 

Although this bed and breakfast is located in the historic downtown Bradenton, you might feel like you have arrived in London, England, minus the King’s Guards all dressed in red. Each room has photographs and exciting articles showcasing areas in London. 


Suppose you’re looking for something a bit stronger than afternoon tea. In that case, the Bradenton area is home to six brewhouses, so grab a designated driver and take a tour of the local libations. While cruising around the microbrewery scene, and make sure to check out all the awards these breweries have won.     


Fuel up with your complimentary breakfast before venturing off to your next adventure, possibly at Adrenaline Row, which is a mile-long strip of land to go skiing, kayaking, flyboards, and fishing. Guests have been heard saying they don’t need lunch after such a satisfying breakfast. Yum!

Beyond The Wall Bed and Breakfast

520 Skinner Blvd, Dunedin, FL 34698

Weekend Getaway 

Dunedin, Florida is kindly thought of as the small town north of Tampa Bay but has a big reputation as a great weekend getaway for Floridians and tourists alike. In addition to not one but two state parks, the quaint downtown celebrates Scottish heritage annually. If you’re up to an adventure, try the Tunnel Beach Track where you can walk through a tunnel onto the beach during low tide. Just remember to check the tide chart before you go! 


With over 300 responses averaging an approval rating of a 4.9 Google review, staying at the Beyond the Wall Bed and Breakfast is a no-brainer. These military veteran owners give back by accepting weird and regular folks as their guests. The themed bedrooms make all guests feel like part of the family. They even made one of the rooms military-themed.

Calusa Indians 

When you are ready to learn about the local history, visit Koreshan State Park to learn about the Calusa Indians who inhabited this area before Matlacha became a fishing community.  Today, the town has plenty of fresh local seafood, artists galleries, and local gift shops to enjoy.
