Gulf Coast - Florida - Idyllic beaches and low-key living

From New Port Richey, through Fort Myers and down to Naples, our Gulf Coast villas take up prime positions along the fabulous western coastline. Blessed with idyllic sun, powdery beaches and sumptuous cuisine, a holiday in one of these choice resorts is one of indulgence.

  • Gulf Coast - Florida Beaches

    The Gulf Coast shoreline is blessed with balmy waters which stay warm all through the summer. An ideal holiday destination for sunbathing, you’ll find long tantalising stretches of white sandy beach from Bradenton in the north down to Naples and Marco Island in the south. Swimming, boating, fantastic fishing and diving are all popular along the sun-drenched Gulf Coast - a shoreline dotted with excellent facilities including great restaurants, picnic areas and beachside volleyball.

  • Gulf Coast - Florida Activities

    Leisure meets pleasure on the Gulf Coast to create a relaxing holiday environment filled with activities to suit every taste. Whether you choose a round of golf (there’s over 100 challenging courses to pick from) cycling, windsurfing or sailing, you’ll find a fantastic variety of sports facilities here. The Gulf Coast also gives you the chance to get up close to nature with its endless waterways, wetland reserves and the famous Everglades National Park – home to alligators, crocs and rich bird life. Sunset boat trips, deep sea-fishing and island tours are all on offer, often accompanied by the friendly pelicans and dolphins. Children will love a day at the world famous Ringling circus museum and the hands-on Science museum in Sarasota

  • Gulf Coast - Florida Shopping

    From big bustling malls to unique little boutiques, Florida’s Gulf Coast has it all. You can explore Sarasota’s Armand Circle, an exclusive district with more than 150 boutiques and a great choice of restaurants and cafes ideal for a long lazy lunch. Or visit one of the Gulf Coast’s many air-conditioned shopping malls and outlets, offering everything from the latest fashions to discounted designer seconds. Small local precincts, pretty and secluded, give a distinctly European feel as you’re wandering around, making sure that time is forgotten and shopping is savoured.

  • Gulf Coast - Florida Nightlife

    Visitors and locals alike gather every evening to experience the famous Gulf Coast sunset. Enjoy the spectacular scenery from a bayside restaurant, or take one of the popular sunset cruises and dance to live music as you watch the beautiful skyline change. A wonderful choice of restaurants and bars can be found along the shoreline, some lively and others more tranquil and relaxing. For a complete taste of Florida on your villa holiday, Sarasota offers dozens of great restaurants and fun entertainment; while in Naples and Fort Myers you can relax in a waterfront eatery and watch the pelicans gracefully skimming the sea.

  • Gulf Coast - Florida Holidays - Points of Interest

    • Bradenton beach, Anna Maria Island. A day on the beach watching the pelicans, searching for sea shells, a game of volleyball, and watching the sunset at the Sandbar restaurant.

The Englewood/ Manasota area is typical of the Gulf Coast, quiet and peaceful, lots of long sandy beaches, and plenty of decent places to eat.
The Red Tide was a big worry before our trip, and the locals were impacted with smells keeping them away from beaches, and hitting tourism. Worth checking this out before booking.

The beach was very close to the Villa. Easy access to main roads. Shops and restaurants need a car - 10-30 mins drive.
Unfortunately there was an algae Red Tide in the Gulf Bay Area when we were on holiday. We could not use Manasota Beach regularly due the dead fish and respiratory conditions.

The setting was beautiful and the villa is very private (which is unusual for a Florida villa)
Our stay at villa Hudson was very nice. Just a few observations below:
1. The airhocky table in the garage didn’t work.

2. The additional drive to collect the keys to the villa from TMI appeared to be an unessasary step. Could the code to the key box (located at the property) not have been provided by James Villas to avoid this additional journey.

3. The bottom of the swimming pool has a rough finish which after several days of constant use made all of our party’s feet very sore.

4. The villa is located in a residential area which is very peaceful and well kept. Sadly the raised voices and bad language from a neighbouring property was heard on a few occasions which was unfortunate given that we were travelling with children.

The villa was in a residential area which suited us ,but was not within walking distance of any restaurant.
We never got the AC correct and were unable to adjust it below 73 which when it touched mid 90s most days could have helped
