WOW right on the Gulf listen to the waves crashing Small resort, 50 units all decorated differently. with lovely pool and swimming in the Gulf. On up scale Long Boat Key, mostly casual but some dressy eateries. we stayed in a second floor studio with a taste of old Florida.
Terrazo floors .. updated granite kitchen and flattop stove. We cooked a little but so many restaurants and grouper, The resort was very clean and the staff friendly & helpful. What fun to spot dolphin and pelicans diving. GREAT SHOPPING at St Armands Circle my credit card melted.
A trolley runs up and down the island and also goes to St Armands & Sarasota very neat!
