The management does not push timeshare sales. We did not receive any calls about free offers or attending tours promoting timeshare sales.
If you are looking for a relaxing, no-stress resort with no activities, this is the place.
The pool is very clean and warm. Restrooms are located in the pool area.
The pool area is sunny all day; if you like shade, the adjacent area has natural shade trees with plenty of tables and chairs with two gas grills available for your use. Very few people use the pool; the most people we saw at the pool all week was six people.
Watching the boating activity and the fish jumping on the intercostals waterway while at the pool is enjoyable.
Parking is available in front of each unit.Resort Experience:The resort has 34 units, mostly occupied by seniors that own multiple weeks. No children were on site and this is not the place for young families; unless you spend most of your time at the public beach across the street, children will be bored. There were no game rooms or exercise equipment.
The pool is located at the end of the jetty with water view on three sides; there’s no hot tub. The pool is small but adequate. It is very deep; it starts out at four feet and quickly goes to eight feet with a rope with floats at the end of the five-foot area. It’s not good for children.
The central air conditioning is very comfortable. The intercostals water-view master bedroom is large and has a 20" TV, king-size bed, two end tables, a small bureau, and plenty of closet space (however, there were only a few old wire hangers). The furniture is outdated. The combination living room and dining room is large. The dining area has a good size glass-topped table with four chairs. The living room has an entertainment center with CD player, VCR, 25" TV, sleep sofa, round glass-topped coffee table, two glass-topped end tables, all in Florida décor. The sofa and chairs are not very comfortable and outdated. The artwork on the walls is tacky, except for the painting in the bedroom.
A large balcony with sunny exposure runs the full width of the unit with access from the master bedroom and living room.
The bathroom has a refinished tub, adequate drawers, and large mirror. The bathroom is accessible by two doors, one from the bedroom and the other to a corridor with another that leads to the living room. This corridor has a large closet (no hangers).
The kitchen is well equipped with full size appliances. We had a problem with small ants; however, by spraying around the base of the cabinets with insect spray that was supplied with the unit, we kept them under control. The kitchen table is large for the area; it has two chairs, one on each end. One chair is located in front of the storage closet that contains pots pans and miscellaneous items, but this chair is in the way of opening the door, which makes it difficult to use the storage closet.
They do charge you 25 cents for any connected call on the phone system, even local and 800 numbers. The laundry area located on the ground level next to the pool area, has two washers and two dryers, and is free of charge. A newspaper is supplied in a local drop box each day (except Sunday) free of charge.
The resort has an informal kick-off breakfast at 9:30am Monday with bagels, pastries, fruit, coffee, and juice. Most of the people attending seem to know each other as they have had the same weeks for years. The management has a raffle for a one-hour boat ride for two at the end of the breakfast.
