Angel Puckett of Angel's Vacation Rentals suggested we take a look at Turtle Crawl Inn Resort (turtlecrawlinnresort.com). This complex is located on the gulf side of the island and offers a variety of units. We had friends coming in for the week and needed an extra bedroom. We found the perfect unit for our stay - a stand alone house with two bedrooms, a large living room, dining room, a fully equipped kitchen and screened-in lanai. The heated swimming pool was about five steps out our back door. Just past the pool was a barbeque area with gas grills and a covered gazebo. The complex was lush and tropical with laundry facilities and also had a shuffleboard court. The beach area was just past the pool and set up with lounge chairs for relaxing all day and enjoying beautiful sunsets.
There is a brand new Publix located only a couple of miles from the resort. The island is very bicycle friendly and there are bicycle lanes the whole length of the island. There are several parks with trails for bicycling and hiking.
