This lodging is a bit of a throwback. It's a number of separate cinder buildings, with four units each building. Doesn't sound great, does it? BUT...when you walk in your room you find it is spotless, well appointed, has nice furniture and decor, faces a sandy "beach" front yard and it has its own boat ramp if you want to launch a small to medium-sized boat for fishing. It's not a room, really, but a bedroom and a living/dining/kitchen room; a small suite actually. Each of the buildings is painted in bright southern Florida colors and that front yard has hammocks, adirondack and lodge chairs so you can sit and enjoy the water view, or the stars or the sunrise. We stayed on night. We wished we could have stayed longer. No far down the street, in easy walking distance, is the Island Grill. Good food and faces the water, too.
