Type of Car

Dodge Caravan Sport. 7 people, people carrier surprisingly comfortable and lots of room. Very easy to drive.



For the first week. This one was at Indian Point just south of Highway 192. For location this area is perfect. However, the villa turned out to be a horrendous nightmare see HORROR STORY

Week 2 was spent in a condo on the Isla Del Sol which is an island community just south of St Pete's Beach (about 5 Minutes). For me if one word could sum up this place its PERFECTION. Its positioned on a golf course and the condos are surprisingly roomy, its biggest advantage is it is very close to Fort DeSoto my own little piece of paradise. One word of caution though --- take lots of Mosquito repellent you WILL need it.

Holiday Comments

Week 1 was a right off, see HORROR STORY. Week 2 kind of made up for it although the pressures of the previous week really put a strain on it. In future I think we will probably spend all our time at St Pete's or Clearwater and just drive to the parks in Orlando when needed.
