About the neighbourhood
We are situated on a narrow sliver of land with Gulf in front and 8-mile long Little Lagoon behind us. We are 2.5 miles from the Hwy 59 'T', just before the bridge at the pass connecting Little Lagoon to Gulf. Just out of the fray of traffic, yet 3 minutes back to all the action, restaurants and activities. No fighting for space on the beach when you stay with us! Appx 25 restaurants within a 5-minute drive, plus a super Wal-mart!
Getting around
Bring your bikes (or rent) for easy access to everything for the teens or for the entire family!
