Looking for a good vacation spot in Fla. Keys area

iloveroostersNovember 13, 2003

My husband and I are thinking of going to Florida in late Feb. We are looking at the Keys or Sanibel Island area. Never having been down in that part of the state (only Orlando), we aren't sure where to stay.

I would like someplace not too wild, without high rise hotels all over the beaches and without stripclubs and bars everywhere. Basically I think a serene place on the beach with shopping nearby and bicycle paths, good swimming/snorkeling, a nice nature preserve possibly, and a place that has a kitchenette.

Any suggestions from people who have been to my dream vacation???

There is a regular poster on the "Buying a home" forum that lives in the Venice area. He has several small homes he rents that sound kind of what you might be looking for. If not, he might could give you some advice. His screen name is "Retroactive" and he has some posts under "Re: Definition of McMansion II". YOu could e-mail him directly through his link. I'm sure he'd be glad to help.
