    I cannot give you the specific unit number for a couple weeks. Choose the 2nd floor north end ( Bradenton ) corner unit for more windows. We were the 3rd from the end, I believe.

    That is correct. I also want to say that there is service that one can rent beach chairs and umbrellas and the service will drop off and pick up the equipment at The Diplomat Beach Resort.
