This is the place to relax! Located right across the street from the beach, the property supplies great bikes, beach umbrellas, towels and chairs. Theres a barbecue area right on the bay. Great place to bring up a boat or paddleboard.Tennis court on property as well. Wonderful for family beach vacations

Enjoyed staying here and the room was very nice! Need some improvements however, such as the master bath shower has poor water pressure and is somewhat outdated. A new shower-head would make the world of difference. Pool was very nice and surrounding area was beautiful. Very easy access to the beach and we were so glad they offered complimentary umbrellas...

Location was great. King bed was awful, and both my husband and I have back problems. Checked in on a holiday weekend so no management was here til tuesday. The hot tub wasn't hot enough to use and had to wait til Tuesday when it was fixed to use. Plenty if space.

We own two timeshare weeks at this resort on Crane's Bay, across the street from the Gulf of Mexico. It's a beautiful upscale island with close access to restaurants on the island and at nearby St. Armand's Circle. The nearby Publix supermarket is a cut or two above many of their stores, with a salad bar, hot dinner bar, expanded... More

Had an excellent 2 week stay. Apartments are large (1600 sq ft), well furnished, very clean with great views of the bay. Having bikes available to ride and chairs and umbrellas to take to the beach were a nice amenity.
