We stayed for a week in unit 16, the 4 bedroom. A total of 9 of us, including 4 children. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The 4 bedroom is very private with a magnificent balcony-view of the sarasota bay. The fishing dock is right there also which was very convenient. The beach is a short tow minute walk to the other side of the resort, although we drove with all our gear. The traffic on the street you cross is not a concern as there was minimal traffic most of the time with no problems crossing with kids in tow. The beach has chairs and loungers and there were a couple of umbrellas in the unit. There are many (very nice) gas-grills spread around by the pool and beach, and the beach side has a nice shady area with tables and chairs. Overall, a great place for families, the beach is VERY private and one of the nicest I've seen on the gulf.
Now as far as the negatives go there were only a few. The pool is very small, so if you are looking for a resort with a giant pool with waterfalls and slides look elsewhere. The unit we were in was very nice and spacious with adequate furnishings. The only complaint I had were the bathrooms in this unit were very dated and in dire need of renovation- but from what I understand the unit has been scheduled to be renovated.
Overall, it was a very nice stay, and we hope to go back!!
