So you are on the water in little bay where the public boat launch is! If you keep straight on Key Royale, when you cross Marina Drive it turns into 66th street that will take you to an access between Mainsail Beach Inn and Beach Bistro. It is around 3 1/2 full blocks from the house. Could do easily on a bike or golf cart. Could drive, just not sure where you would park. Maybe someone else could say?

Theres a trolley stop close to where Key Royale meets Marina Dr. You turn right on Marina Dr and it is front of the Gloria Dei church. I think that's if you are going north. Not sure where the one going south is, It can't be more than a few blocks, since there is only 2-4 between stops.

If you haven't taken a look at it online, a 15 passenger van is not a 'minivan'. It's a very large vehicle and will be more like driving (and parking) a truck than a car or minivan. Finding a large parking spot for it could be a challenge.

I do think it may be classified as a mini bus instead of a minivan ( which is basically a glorified station wagon.

Don't have nightmares, once you get to the island it will all be fine. Use the mini bus to transport people to the house and maybe for a provision stop at Publix, and after that everyone can use bikes, walk or use the trolly to get around for day to day fun. That's what we do---and we drive a hot Mustang convertible--but we bike, walk or trolly most of the time because its just easier.
