Gulf Coast 4 Night Stay Recommendations

Ive got four nights to fill after we leave Orlando and head across to Fort Lauderdale for two nights before flying home.

I was hoping to go to Anna Maria Island. My dream was a renovated beach bungalow with a private pool but its really hard to find to anything as they want 7 night booking minimum.

Can anyone suggest another area? Property must sleep 5 with no sofa beds! Ideally walking distance of the beach as well.

Thanks

Naples would be my choice. Naples Golf and Beach resort is literally on the beach, not sure about 5 people rooms though.

We are booked yo stay at the Bellasera in Naples. A 3 bed appt there would suit you.

Or, try HomeAway for a villa somewhere.

We wanted to stay on AMI but the prices were shocking, so we've booked somewhere in Bradenton. Not on the beach by any means, but close enough.

Id always recommend Naples. I would have said probably stay further North though for only 4 nights, but as you are going to Fort Lauderdale, then Naples is closer to that anyway, across Alligator Alley. We always rent a house on Lely now via Naples Villa Rentals (Horizon) in UK or Homeaway.
But a cracking place is Indian Shores. Dont know why but I really like it there (stayed most places on the Gulf in 20+ visits). Its even better now as just over the bridge in Seminole, they built a good range of shops and chain restaurants. There is a really good value condo place, lovely it is, sandwiched between the beach and inland waterway called Barefoot Beach Resort (its on the inland waterway side of the road, but the beach is literally just across the road). You can rent a condo on Homeaway there its all privately owned , youd probably want a 2 bed. Its about 100 a night for a 2 bed.

We stayed at AMI a couple of years ago for 2 weeks and had an amazing time , thought we would check out some prices for next year too OMG 😲 prices have doubled . Looking at Cape Coral as quite enjoyed it there and prices more reasonable.

Try annamaria.com , you can do a web chat with them giving your dates etc and see what they can come up with. They also have an UK Freephone number. Always found them very helpful
