We loved it there and even shared it with our 75 year old grandmother. We had the penthouse unit that faces the gulf and enjoyed breakfast out on deck with our two small children (3&7) and our grandmother. We also got to experience a tropical storm but endured as staff and other owners conversed and relaxed each other. The beach is right at your doorstep. Our fondest memories 13 years later was walking with our daughters after dinner along the beach with the sun setting and, my husband awaking between 5 and 7am to walk out into the gulf along with the others to fish. The best was that we have an aunt who resides in Nokomis, which is 20 minutes south of the resort and an aunt who lived in Bradenton which was 30 minutes north. We are looking forward to getting back into the same unit with our 18-month old granddaughter. Thanks RCI.
