My cousin and I stayed in Villa V right near A1A. Short, pleasant walk to pool, private beach/ocean or to intercostal for a cigar provided varied options. Ususally didn't bother to put on sandals! Spent most of our time "hanging-out" on private porch playing guitar and playing cards. Yet, ventured out occasionally to some of the top golf courses in South FL w/ the money we saved by staying in a one bedroom unit and not eating in restaurants.
Spartan dining? No-way. Kitchen was well equiped and grilled most nights conveniently just off porch. While an HD large-screen, cable TV was great for watching our occasional favorite sporting events and blue-ray DVD's movies, we mostly used cable TV and its theatre-style speakers for playing music provided by the cable provider. WI-FI allowed us stay in touch with business partners and clients.
Although we had only a 1 bedroom, a blow-up bed was more than sufficent, which was easily moved to the bedroom each morning. Our villa was tastefully beach-house decorated, clean and well-maintained. The grounds were attractively maintained, and interaction with other guests reminded me of being on a very small cruiseliner.
Office staff very friendly and responsive. Parking car immediately next to villa was an under-estimated convenience.
Road noise wasn't an issue, as porch was well-screened from the road with tropical vegitation -- actually had a dinner party on our porch one night w/ outside guests!
If staying in a high-rise box is not your thing, I highly recommend this 50's style, oasis-like blast from he past. Suggestion: Would like to see RFV add a hot-tub on the intercostal. Regardless, we'll be back.
