Finally found a place that epitomizes what 'getting away' is all about. The Tradewinds is beautiful, well-maintained, and an all-around lovely stay with an even lovelier staff. Sarasota Bay is right out the window (in the apartment we stayed in) with 'jumping' fish and colorful sunrises. Right across the street is the beach on the Gulf of Mexico where beach chairs are always available (as well as the clearest, bluest water and loads of egrets and pelicans). A great all-around get-away vacation!
