If your looking for something to do for New Year Eve the Wharf is a good choice. Very kid and family friendly. Close to everything (but the beach) also the "Oasis is seasonal) aka no pool for kids during off season but otherwise perfect for a New Year Eve celebration. Has free live bands, Great fireworks and light display plus... More

Booked a room for three days in August. If you're not familiar with the area please ask lots of questions. It is located at least 3 miles from the actual beach. It is a marina in a bay. and not on the ocean side off the beach. We took our family expecting to be on the beach. We were so... More

No matter what you are coming down for, whether it's a concert or not, the Wharf is a really nice place to see anytime of the year.I always go for concerts at the amphitheater and you can't go wrong there, not a bad seat in the house. Only bad thing might be its hot because it's outside.

We love our annual vacation to the Wharf! Pretty much everything you want all in one spot. The Oasis pool area, shopping, restaurants, theater and bars in a fabulous setting. Anything else you could possible want is just a short drive (10 min) away including the beach! We will continue to come here for many years.

Me & my family rented out one of the boats for 8 hours , 2 days in a row and it was awesome. They had a man explain to us everything we needed to know. It comes with a map, and a key to the map explaining where the best places were to find dolphins, which islands to go and... More

Was a little skeptical because we ALWAYS stay on the beach during vacation...The Wharf has everything you need and the beach is about a 10 minute drive. The condo we rented was perfect...it was clean and very well maintained! The shopping is great and the water park is amazing!!!

The Wharf has a variety of everything located within walking distance from your room. It's very lively and great family for family time. There's something to do for all ages. Condo was beautifully decorated and great home away from home feel.

We decided on a Wednesday to head to the beach on Friday. This is a great spot to stay. Only 10 minutes from the beach, Publix & Walmart. The condos are away from the crowded beach and offers tranquility & relaxation. There is so much to do at the Wharf that if you decide not to leave it'll be ok... More

Activities for kids to do. We loved the Ferris wheel. The water oasis is amazing.. First trip here we only made it to the beach 1 time cause my kids preferred... More
