This is a no hassle place. Park anywhere, laundry is free. Maintenance man will rig up a fishing rod for you and filet your catch. Borrow bikes, canoes, etc. Forgot something? They have a supply of beach towels, beach chairs, etc, that others have left behind. This is a really homey place, pot luck dinners, free popcorn, etc. Staff couldn't have been nicer. Inside the unit, it IS older, but very clean, large, and well-equipped. We enjoyed the funky "boathouse" décor. The sunsets on the screened balcony were awesome. If the beach is your thing, you need to understand...your view is the beach but between your view and the beach there is a little strip of beach, then a narrow lagoon, then the actual beach, so it is a little walk. The lagoon is usually shallow enough to wade but it is mucky. For fishermen, while we were there, redfish, snook, black drum, trout, and pompano were caught in the lagoon. Just borrow a chair and a shrimp bucket. It is teeming with wildlife, herons, egrets, roseate spoonbills, and oystercatchers. This is at the quieter, south end of the beach. If you are looking to party, probably not your best choice. A few minutes from restaurants, (Recommend Doc Ford's) and 2 miles to Publix. We would love to return.
