We stayed here the last week of July in 2009! It was perfect! Most of the crowds had gone and we felt like we had our own private beach! The location is great with the beach only a few steps away! We took our 4 children ranging in age 19-9...everyone had a fun time. We took the trolley to breakfast one morning which was fun. We saw a Tampa Bay Rays game and took a sailboat ride in Sarasota. Our kids even saw two dolphins while swimming in the ocean late one night! The sunsets are gorgeous here. Everything you need to prepare meals is in your Villa. I also loved the fact that we could check out all of our beach toys and a wagon to carry them! The washer and dryer on site made our vacation even more enjoyable.
