We just returned from a lovely relaxing week at the Coast Condo. From the moment we opened the door and saw the bright and spacious rooms, we knew we had found a home away from home. The condo was sunny, full of light and immaculate. We really appreciated the uncluttered space, all the new appliances throughout, and the exceptionally comfortable bed.
Nina and Glenn were the ideal hosts – friendly, interesting, and full of information about the area. Nina told us to make sure we could access our email while visiting. She sent lots of information about activities and sights that she thought we might like via email throughout our stay. We certainly would need a lot longer than a week to explore everything in this area. We saw a little of Fort Pierce, and especially enjoyed the Saturday Farmer’s Market. The live music was great. The fresh fruits and produce were abundant. The best part for us was visiting the Macy’s booth which was selling smoked fish. The smoked fish spread, smoked salmon and smoked kingfish were all excellent.
We are interested in wildlife, so we really wanted to see the manatees while in Fort Pierce. We chased rumors for a couple of days without any luck. Glenn was very helpful and gave us several specific places to look for them. Finally on day 4, we saw several by the Tiki Bar at the boat basin next to the Farmer’s Market park. That was followed by a visit to the Manatee Observation and Education Center. The volunteer there shared lots of fascinating information about manatees. Maybe next time we will see some dolphins. We also visited the Smithsonian Marine Station at Fort Pierce, which had fascinating tanks showing seven different marine ecosystems in the Florida coast.
All in all, we had a great time, and would highly recommend a visit to Sandy Toes Beach Resort. We’d like to come back again and explore all the areas that we didn’t have time to see this time.
