My kids rented this place for me since I asked for a last minute date. I wished for something right on the beach but I'll take a block and a half from the back driveway. Having only window air conditioners it was hard to cook the whole house. No afternoon napping, it got too warm. Loved the options of kayaks. I just started kayaking but was so excited for some relaxing beach time. Very excited how close to this everything was. I got to beach hope to Sarasota, siesta key, and longboat key.
