Relaxing Experience in Perfect Location

Our little four day get-a-way was truly a relaxing experience. The property in general, though a bit dated, was actually very nice. Others have posted about rude employees however that was not the case for us. Staff were friendly and the resort overall was clean. and well kept. The pool was sparkling though we never did get the chance to use it. Instead we spent our time down on the shore relaxing under the umberlla we found in our unit and swimming in the gulf using the boogie boards also found in the room.
The kitchen in the unit was convenient, allowing us to have our breakfasts out on the balcony watching the early morning joggers and children shelling along the shore. Lunch at Caddies-a very short walk along the beach-was very enjoyable. They have the perfect icy drinks and good food.
The resort is really perfectly located with a grocery store (Publixs) and shops a short drive down the street yet away from noisy partiers. We also rented a jet ski from Dolphins boat and seadoo's about 2 miles down the road.
As for the unit itself--it has had it's days...though definately liveable and a good value for being right on the beach, it was a bit worn out. I would say it is perfect for a family with young children because you would not worry too much about ruining any expensive furniture.
The unit is well stocked. I have rented from private owners many times and I would have to say this was the best in regards to the available beach stuff to use (umberlla, beach chairs, boogie boards, things for making sand castles, beach towels). Also plenty of very clean (new?) towels, and kitchen items like napkins, paper plates and paper towels. There was also a toaster, toaster oven and was fully stocked with plates, glasses, silverware. I would suggest adding a blender so renters can make their own icy concoctions. I brought stuff to make mud slides but could not grind ice for them.
The beds and pillows were unfortunately very uncomfortable. I usually bring my own pillows when traveling and the first time I forget to bring them is when I needed them the most. Almost traveled the 45 minute drive home to get my pillows because the first night I could not sleep at all! Also the A/C was a bit of an issue. Could not adjust it at all...so the room was warm during the day and freezing at night.
Over all I would say the the resort was "good", the unit "average", and the location "excellent".
