We had a wonderful stay!

Laura and Anthony have a lovely, comfortable home. The spacious house served as home base for our two families while visiting the beach in March. We had plenty of room for all five of us.
Each day we wandered across the street to the beach and took long walks. The white sand beach and beautiful green water inspired us to stay outside and enjoy it, even when the weather was not cooperative. Each evening we walked across the bridge to John's Pass to enjoy the restaurants. Our teenage girls loved Bubba Gump's shrimp! John's Pass hosts many of the nearby activities, so we were there a lot. The girls got their first parasailing experience, which turned out to be the highlight of the trip. Both families enjoyed the dolphin sighting boat tour. The boats go past "bird island" where hundreds of egrets, spoonbills, and pelicans were nesting. This is a must-see for nature lovers (though our teenagers found it boring). We saw a lot of dolphins that day, too.
One evening we drove north about 8 miles or so to Indian Rocks Beach to go to the Salt Rock Grille. It was one of the finest dining experiences we've had in a long time. Don't miss the glass floor that looks down on their wine cellar!
We will definitely recommend Laura and Anthony's house as a great location for friends that want to visit Florida's west coast. We came back refreshed, relaxed, and wishing we had more time there!
