The Wicker Inn is truly as the website depicts it. My husband and I stayed with our 2 younger children (8 and 6) Nov. 30- Dec.3, 2007. I wished we had booked more days. None of us wanted to leave. We return to Florida every year and visit family. Each time we include a few intimate days just for us at the beach. We haven't been impressed enough to ever stay the same place twice. Until the Wicker Inn. Our search is over. This is it! The staff was wonderful. (Better than at some 4 star resorts.) The bungalows were very clean and comfortable. The grounds were beautiful and impeccably maintained. They overflowed with an abundance of flowers, tropical plants, palm trees and a crushed shell pathway that meandered through it all. The beach was gorgeous with breathtaking sunsets every night. It was peaceful, unspoiled. We had the smell of the salty ocean and the sound of the waves steadily breaking on the shore. We wiggled our toes in the sand and watched the sandpipers scurry to and fro. We took leisurely walks and heard the laughter of our kids as they built sandcastles. All close to our room. So it was convenient to go from the pool to the ocean to our bungalow (for food, drinks, bathroom breaks, etc.) and back again. It's also close to St. Armands Circle which is full of unique shops and a good selection of restaurants. I highly recommend The Wicker Inn to anyone wanting a true Florida beach experience.
