We just came back from a wonderful week at the Diplomat Unit #214 in Long Boat Key, Florida.
The room was quite comfortable -- open the door and the beach is right there...very much a hidden treasure. The weather very nice, sunsets beautiful -- able to walk the beach daily.
Love the pool - outside view of the Gulf of Mexico and watch the dolphins swim by.
St Armands Circle has wonderful restaurants and gift shops and the kids, especially enjoyed the Mote Aquarium...the manatees; sea turtles and all types of fish.
I am telling all my friends -- great vacation, great value / go there!
