This has been a fabulous condo for spending the winter. The location is amazing -- a short bicycle ride or walk to:
* the beautiful beach just across the Cortez bridge
* fresh fisherman seafood markets
* great restaurants of any type
* produce markets
After spending the winter here, I would definitely choose to be OFF the island mainly due to the congestion. Walking and bike riding to any place over there is the way to go. We have had such fun having dolphins play around our sailboat. Sarasota Bay is beautiful for sailing as well as Tampa Bay.
Ashley has always been immediately reachable when we have had questions and most helpful. We recommend wintering here to anyone. We would not hesitate to come back, but we wish to go to different locales each winter. Oh yeah, the neighbors here are super too! Mostly year round folks with a handful of snowbirds.
