Recent transfer from Sav. to Orlando has me planning our first trip to Gulf Coast for hubby's 40th. Lived in Bahamas & USVI for years, appreciate quiet beach, and great sunsets. Although Canadian, he can be on the beach all day(Former dive instr.) but I love a nice pool with a private/tropical feel for am coffee, pm wine and shade!! Will be driving but hoping to find a place with character and charm- (1 fine dine for Bday, otherwise casual) that we can walk to. 3 nights , May 12th, around$150-$200/night.
Have looked tirelessly online for right place (special occasion) but looking for right mix of great beach and quaint town feel. Is Longboat a good call? Thanks so much in advance for any help!!
