Beach + Pool Florida Recommendations with 16 month old

Jump to last reply

My wife and I want to go to Florida sometime around March to May with our 16 month old son. We obviously won't be able to do much in terms of attractions but more like walks, beach and pool time. We're looking for recommendations on towns/cities as well as 2 bedroom places with a kitchen so we can eat in frequently. We're looking to stay for around 4 days / 5 nights. Our top range of budget would be 1,000 for accommodations but would prefer it to be closer to $750 (~$150/night). We have free airfare on Southwest to either Orlando, Tampa, Ft. Meyers and Ft. Lauderdale. I'm thinking Tampa or Ft. Meyers would be best since I prefer the Gulf side and Orlando doesn't have much else besides theme parks. We're not interested in doing any theme parks. Just a simple, relaxing vacation with a nice pool and easy, quick access to a beach.

We've had Sanibel and Gasparilla recommended to us. Any other suggestions? Any suggestions on where to stay in Sanibel or Gasparilla that fits our criteria?

Thanks very much in advance for any advice!
