I have stayed at the Cabana Beach Club several times, but mostly at their two bedroom units facing the Gulf. This time, because I was going by myself, I booked Unit 11 across the street that faces the canal.
It is a one bedroom, one bathroom unit which is fine, except I didn't like the fact that 1) your door entrance leads you smack into the bedroom, so there is no living area before you get to the bedroom. For privacy/safety issues it was a concern to me. 2) I wasn't able to enjoy the canal view/deck area because the french doors leading to it in the back would not open and the blinds wouldn't open completely. You would have had to leave the unit, go around the building towards the back and then enjoy your patio area. 3) Only 3 spaces to park (I know there are three units but one of them is for handicapped parking). So I found a spot facing the road that I used. Unit very clean, and kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, silverware, etc., comfy bed, bathroom has no counter space, so bring something to keep your toiletries in. Kitchen great as always, small TV in living room, no TV in bedroom which could be a problem if you bring kids and they want to watch something else. Good size chest of drawers, good size closet. Dining set nice. Sofa sleeper in living room, so technically you could sleep 4 people.
If you don't mind the few issues above, location is great. Unit not available for less than 1 night stay or you have to pay a cleaning fee of $60.
