I was invited to stay 3 nights at Tuckaway Shores and visit the Space Coast. All lodging and expenses were paid, with the exception of travel. All opinions are my own, and honest as always.
I’d never been to Florida, until just recently! I was invited to visit for a few days and stay at the “old Florida” style Tuckaway Shores resort. Since I’d never been, I wanted to take a few days away to stay on the beach before winter set in here at home. As soon as we arrived, Jacqui greeted us and gave us a tour of the quaint and cozy Tuckaway Shores Resort.
I have to say that Jacqui and Suzanne, along with the rest of the staff, were beyond phenomenal. They called us by name and we were treated as though we were family. I have never, in my entire life, been treated that way by other hotel staff members. EVER. They made our weekend trip one to remember for a lifetime!

Tuckaway Shores is a small, 3 story resort. It’s got that “old, authentic Florida” vibe going on. It’s what Florida spots used to look like, before all the highrise and modern hotels moved in. All the rooms are very LARGE and spacious. All are decorated differently. We stayed on the 3rd floor and had these awesome fold style doors that opened up to the beautiful sight and sounds of the ocean! We were literally – ON the beach – and woke up to that beautiful view each and every morning! I didn’t even want to turn the TV on because I didn’t want it to drown out the sounds of the ocean waves crashing.
Tuckaway Shores is the perfect spot for a family vacation or getaway. There’s a bedroom, bathroom, living room and then a kitchenette. The kitchenette has everything you need! A stovetop, full size refrigerator/freezer, sink, microwave and everything else. Plates, glasses, cookware, coffee maker. They’ve got you covered! I don’t know about you, but when I’m on vacation at the beach, I don’t want to spend hours away in the city. Especially spending tons of money dining out. I want to STAY on the beach! Tuckaway Shores makes sure that you’re able to do just that.
You won’t believe how clean the rooms are! To be on the ocean, with all the sand, I was amazed! Tuckaway Shores has actually won the “White Glove” award the last 5 years. That’s a pretty big deal. Basically what that means is that someone from Superior Small Lodging has visited (unannounced) and done their white glove inspection. Tuckaway Shores passed the test!
They have the Big Green Egg for grilling and cooking! We enjoyed a lot of really excellent food from some of the local Eggheads while we were there! They also have free Wi-fi, a heated pool, a cabana room, business center and private beach access!
About the beach! Let me just say that all I have to do is walk down the stairs and boom. I’m right there on the beach in less than a minute! There’s a beautiful breezeway leading out to the beach. They have beach toys and beach chairs right there for you to use – FREE of charge! There’s also a small showerhead for you to wash all the sand away before going back to your rooms! I love that!!!
The beach was so secluded, and CLEAN! I felt like, aside from just the few other bloggers that were there at the same time on the trip, that I saw maybe a handful of other people. Not congested at all like you’re used to seeing on other beaches. That was SUPER awesome! There were no rocks that kids could step on in the sand…..just your normal seashells and beautiful soft sand. The sand you sink down into……love it!
One really awesome thing is, that because Tuckaway Shores Resort is located in Indiatlantic, FL. it’s just about an hour or so to Orlando. If you’re planning a trip to Disney but want some quiet and seclusion at the same time – I would highly recommend staying at Tuckaway Shores. You won’t find that kind of quiet and seclusion anywhere else! OH, and the sunrises are beautiful!! Here’s a sunrise I caught on video one morning….
They’re also right on the Space Coast and there is SO much to do there. We visited the Kennedy Space Center, Brevard Zoo, Port Canaveral, and tons more! I’ll be posting more about each spot so keep your eye out for those posts!
