    Grand Isle is wonderful- my mother is a "snowbird" there in the winter. The 3 bedrooms are the way to go- very spacious. There are 2 restaurants downstairs, Flip Flops (breakfast, burgers,etc) and Seagrove Coyote/La Botana (more Latin menu, fantastic breakfast and lunch, great wine- one of my favorites on 30A). Beach access right across street. The place is immaculate-the owner/developer is there every morning with his leaf blower, not a leaf out of place!

    That is so funny! We used to live near the owner and joked with him about how he used his leaf blower twice a day for his own yard! He is a perfectionist and a very nice guy. I agree with jdarg - great location and very nice building.

    Grand Isle is in a great location. Close to Seaside. Close to an access. Not hard to cross 30A there. Flip-Flops and Seagrove Coyote/La Botana serve very good food. If you have a choice, choose the western side over the eastern side. The pool is on the eastern side, and you know how sound broadcasts from a pool. That being said, as often as we go to Grand Isle to eat, there's rarely anyone in the pool. The building blocks the sun for a lot of the day, so that's not good for people trying to get a tan.

    If I were thinking about buying there and interested in tanning, I'd check out the sun availabilty at the pool. Owners there, please chime in with your experiences of that.

    I agree.

    I'd be very interested in purchasing there.
