A great week in Paradise!!!

Usually pictures can make a vacation setting look better than reality. At Gulfside Villa, the opposite is true. This is a wonderful home and setting which perfectly accomodated our family (including 3 children under 10yrs old), as well as visiting friends. This is the most gracious home imaginable with an enviable setting right on the Gulf of Mexico. The room sizes ,beautiful heated pool, furnishings, ample towel supply, fully equipped kitchen all added to a phenomenal experience, one which every family member truly enjoyed.
Even though the weather was a bit chilly for March, we were able to take in the circus, the Mote Aquarium, Siesta Beach, and Bradenton Beach. Additionally, we are an active group who enjoyed long runs, gym visits, as well as long shell seeking walks on the beach.
As for the maintenance of the home, we were beyond pleased, and believe me, we are tough critics!!
Because we were a multi-generational group of nine, we found dining out a bit daunting, but certainly possible. Reservations are a must with a group this size.
The good news is that there a so many activities left to explore that we need to schedule another visit. The bad news that we had to leave Gulfside Villa and return to the real world.
