          We stayed in Ocean's edge for our second visit, after previously staying at Firefly. Both are excellent options, though Ocean's Edge has an extra seated area overlooking the ocean, and a larger private area. The development has changed little in the 15 years between visits,...More

          You definitely need to rent a car. There are buses but probably safer in your own car. Grocery store is a 5 minute drive. Merlin Bay Condos are the best!!
