My family enjoyed our stay. We used the canoe to go to the beach islands and Caladesi. Dolphin followed us, our kids had a blast. We caught some little fish off the dock, big ones got away from boaters. The patios are great. We stayed in Natures Paradise with palms around the screened porch. The weekly rate is great for a 2 bedroom, monthly rate is even lower but not enough vacation time to stay for a month. The house is well equipped. Pictures are good, what you see is what you get. We met the people in Boaters Dream and saw that home too. We used both patios, the one near the dock was our fav. We are coming back.
