Understand this isn't really a resort. There's no pool, spa or room service. It's an unassuming, almost invisible, small four-unit apartment building with a sandy backyard otherwise known as a beach on the Gulf. The building is set back, so you get a feeling of privacy, even though the public beach entrance is right nearby. With an accommodating property manager onsite, there are only three units for rent. You walk right onto the beach, navigating past Harry, the resident Great Blue Heron. There's a full kitchen, barbeque grill, comfortable bed, free WiFi and ample towels. No one comes in every day to clean, so you feel like the apartment's all yours. There's a Publix supermarket just a few blocks away, so consider dinner outside at your patio table or getting a Publix sub and having lunch on the beach. Location is well positioned if you want to go north a few miles to Anna Maria, or south to Bradenton Beach.
