Casa Del Mar is a wonderful vacation resort on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. The unit that I was in overlooked the pool and had a marvelous view of the beach and Gulf waters which also means that I had a view of an magnificent sunset almost every evening. It was delightfully decorated and had all the amenities of home. The 2 tennis courts are hard-courts that are kept up very well. The pool is warm and inviting and the beach has extraordinarily soft sand. Swimming in the Gulf was a dream -- the water was warm and I could walk out 100 feet and the water would not be over my head. All kinds of shopping and restaurants are nearby. Fishing is great in September especially for Spanish Mackerel. Simply cast and retrieve a silver spoon as fast as you can through a school of bait-fish and you will catch mackerel. This can be done from the shores of Casa Del Mar, although I did most of my fishing off of City Pier on Anna Maria Island, just north of Longboat Key. Like I said before -- Perfect Vacation -- Quiet, Peaceful, Relaxing -- FUN!!!!!
