We just returned from our third trip to Villa #14 at Beachside Villas. This time it was my retirement trip and we were lucky enough to stay for three weeks. When we arrived, we wondered why it took us so long to return. It is amazing to be just steps from the beach and have the waves lull us to sleep each night. (You can't get that in a highrise!) When I read some of the reviews, it was interesting to read the complaints. I don't think it is listed as a resort full of amenities and activities. The writers should have done their homework if that is what they wanted. We wanted to be close to the water and that is what we got even if ( God forbid we had to wash our dishes!) As for the planes, we never got tired of watching them land and take off and I don't remember having to stop a conversation or loosing sleep because of them. The second week there, our daughters arrived in our villa and our friends came to villa #13. This was our friends first time here and they fell in love with it also.We loved our cookouts together.The staff is the best ever, always willing to help with anything. When you stay at a resort, the staff doesn't even know you. It was nice to have personal contact. Being here during the slow season, we usually had the pool to ourselves and walked the beach every day and saw only four or five people. One of our favorite places to eat, was Karacters, right down the beach where we ate delicious gourmet food with our toes in the sand. There are also many other delicious places to eat to choose from. A rental car is a must. If you want your amenities, activities, crowds and elevators to the beach, go elsewhere, but if you want a beautiful home on the beach looking at white sand and beautiful water steps away....this is the place to go. We will be back!
