We are a family of 4 with 2 children ages 11 and 8. This property met our needs for our week vacation to Florida and more! You can see the ocean from the LR window and the bay from the kitchen window. Could see dolphin and sting rays while standing at the sink! It was so convenient to the beach, literally a short walk to the sand and the beach was practically private. Free access to beach toys, chairs, umbrellas even a cooler we took with us when we went fishing. The apartment was very clean and well equipped with everything you would need to call it home for the week. We only had to buy food. Washer/dryer on site. Manager, Bruce, was extremely friendly and accomodating. Very laid back and friendly atmosphere which lends to a very relaxing time. Location is very convenient to everything. Grocery store is only a 5 minute or less drive. The cottage sits very close to Gulf Blvd and I woke up in the night a couple times because of the loud trucks going by, but really not that bad! I would definitely recommend this property. We had a lovely vacation (1st time in FL) and would definitely return to this spot.
