Comparable place to Wicker Inn

Hi there,

We love Wicker Inn but they are booked the time we want to go.

Any suggestions to places that are similar to Wicker Inn?

We liked the one level cottage type that was close to the pool. We like the pool on the beach side (not on the side close to the road).

Will be two adults, 3 kids with ages of 5 years old and two that are 17 months old.

Looking for two bedroom.

Again, looking for something that is similar to Wicker Inn.

Thanks!!!

Thanks SRQgirl. I haven't checked them. Looks like they do not have their own website. Trying to get a feel for the layout of place.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Tim

Hi,

Check out the Sea Grape Inn (seagrapeinn.net, website stinks, BTW), which is about a mile south of the Wicker Inn. I was there last week! This is an 8 unit complex on the Gulf. Each unit has 2-3 bedrooms/2 baths. They have an onsite manager, Gulf front pool, and all units have a great view of the Gulf. We have been vacationing there for 15+ years, and the pool was a nice suprise this year.

We have found that they are also a great value compared to other rental properties on the key.

Also, close to a trolley stop, which let our older kids easily go to Sarasota/St. Armands.

Good Luck!

Wicker Inn is indeed special. But since they're not available for you, take a look at White Sands (which is not too far away) and also at Seaside Gardens.
