Planning a weekend getaway or just ready to escape and relax for a bit? Pack your bags and head to the little town of Indialantic, Florida. You will find a classy little beach town with a little bit of hustle minus the bustle. You will also find the very lovely Tuckaway Shores Resort. Tuckaway Shores offers guest that authentic old Florida feel and so much more.
The first thing I did when checking out my room was throw open the door to take in the view. I love a good beach view. The view of the Atlantic Ocean from my suite was breathtaking to say the least. You can't get any closer than this. Just steps away from the backdoor of my room to the beach. I had a first floor room and could have spent my entire trip just relaxing on the patio with a good book and the sound of the waves.

I have never stayed on the first floor before when staying on the beach and I have to say I positively loved it here at Tuckaway. I felt as if I had my own little backyard to enjoy. I could have spent my entire trip in that chair Total relaxation!
More than a view:
Being a smaller resort definitely has its perks. It's easy to get to know your neighbors and make new friends . Plus the customer service is amazing. The staff really pays attention to you and your needs. I had a cold and the lovely Suzanne checked on me several times to see if I needed anything special. (just the thought touched my heart). Jacqui the resort manager is one of the sweetest ladies ever. She is more than happy to help you make arrangements for travel plans, or just chat about the area. I love that these two ladies are so passionate about the area and can be helpful and also teachers about the space coast! The Space Coast has a lot to offer.
Tuckaway Shores is also a part of the Superior Small Lodging Association. The Superior Small Lodging Association has high standards for their members that helps ensure both quality and value. Tuckaway Shores takes pride and care that their rooms are super clean and will pass the Small Lodging Standards. They have been award the white glove and prestigious awards. I give them a thumbs up because my room was definitely spotless.
The suites at Tuckaway are 2 rooms with a full size kitchenette. I love that you have a full working kitchen. When I am traveling with my children I always look for this. Having boys we can go through some food and snacks. This really helps with the vacation budget. Speaking of budget a stay at Tuckaway Shores is very affordable. The price range is $125-$145 per night.
Tuckaway Shores has a wide range of beach chairs and toys available for their guests use. (really nice) You might like to try out one of their amazing outdoor cookers "Big Green Egg" . We got to taste some really amazing dishes during our stay from local Eggheads. You can smoke, bake everything on them it really is just to neat. Tuckaway gives you everything you need to use the cooker you just buy your own food. There is a local market and also grocery store very close by.
If you get tired of the beach there is always the heated pool and plenty of seating for socializing with friends and family. You can also visit some of the many Space Coast Attractions like the Brevard Zoo where you will find a small zoo with adventures like kayaking with giraffes and zip lining, Take the kids Kennedy Space Center and teach them all about our space history. Check out Port Canaveral and the new Exploration Tower. The area is also known for its many wildlife refuges. We enjoyed bird watching in the Viera Wetlands during our visit. The Space Coast is also nesting ground for many sea turtles during the months of May - October 1. Come during that time and perhaps take part in this amazing experience but do remember that it is against the law to touch or disturb them. Don't forget to eat. There is some fine food to be had here like Rusty's Seafood and Oyster Bar and Sand On the Beach .
