First Post

Hi everyone.  This is my first post on my new blog regarding Florida's Gulf Coast.

As a Gulf Cost villa owner for 4 years, I have a vast amount of information that I whould love to share with you.  Every week I will try and include new and interesting facts / guides / links etc not only regarding the Gulf Coast but also regarding our villa too.  I will also be encouraging previous Guests of the villa to write their own blogs on here too.

I hope you find the information on here interesting and useful and please feel free to contribute if you have anything interesting you would like to add.


  1. I haven't actually stayed at your villa, but just came across your blog! I'm planning on going to Florida next year, so just doing research now. I'll keep an eye out for this interesting information you're going to be posting :)

    I went to Florida a few years back and really loved it. We would be looking at staying on the Gulf Coast side this time but were a little worried about the oil spill.

    As I said, look forward to reading some of your articles!!!

    Jules :)

  2. Hi Jules - Thanks for finding my blog!!

    I'll be sure to keep the articles coming.

    We have just returned from 3 weeks out there and after visiting several beaches I can definitely report that there is NO OIL on any of the beaches local to our villa; Englewood beach, Stump Pass Beach, Boca Grande/Gasparilla Island. They are as beautifully clean as ever! Will post some photos soon.

  3. Jules and others please note there is no oil on the lovely beaches in close proximity to Glorious Gulf Villa we stayed there in MAY and JUNE 2010.We enjoyed it so much that we are going back to this magnificent Villa and its surrounding area in Sept/Oct this year for a return visit --I think that speaks for itself please also note we have been going to Florida for the past 16 years and this is the first time we will have returned to a villa--it was excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!George&Kate Scotland
