Hi folks, I am having trouble finding the best gulf coast forum--looks like there are many forums, one for each town/city, but not many are active. If anyone's got a better idea for a "gulf coast" question, I'm happy to hear it.
We enjoyed a pool home in Orlando last year and would like something similar, but somewhere on the coast. The whole point for us is the private pool, which the kids absolutely loved last year, so condos are out. We have stayed around St Pete's years ago, in a condo, and are open to going further south (flying in to TPA or MCO, depending on airfare deals). Looking at March break period, and honestly, I'm not seeing too much outside of Cape Coral (which seems to be a way from beaches). Fees and add-ons seem higher than in Orlando also; I was hoping to get a week for a grand or less, all in.
Any idea where we should look?
