My wife and I stayed for three nights at the Manhattan Tower and couldn't have been happier! located on the intercoastal waterway just a few blocks from Fort Lauderdales pristine beaches makes The Manhattan Tower Apartment Hotel is the perfect location for your getaway! Your Hosts Russel and Joe are wonderful people that care about your experience at their hotel, making every effort to see that you have a good time. you can choose from one and two bedroom apartments delightfully decorated with full kitchens and everything you need to eat in. A dock with plenty of seating offers a great place to enjoy the views of the waterway while reading or sipping a glass of wine. Comfort and relaxation are the top priorities of the staff at Manhattan Tower.

I spent 4 days and 3 nights at Island Paradise Cottages of Madeira Beach and the truth is I could have just moved in and stayed! My wife and I had never been to Madeira Beach and found it to be a friendly community. Our hosts at IPC June and Bill saw to our every need, most of which had been anticipated with an amazing attention to detail that they use when setting up the cottages. We found board games and cards, books in the laundry room (free washer and dryer) 3 TV's in the cottage we had (Villa Paradiso), although we didn't feel the need to watch tv, the stay was so relaxing. The Kitchen was set up fully and ready to go if I had chosen to cook, but this was my vacation so we dined out for our meals. Although I will state their coffee maker made a great cup of coffee (hot and flavorful) which is something hard to find in hotels and Inns. The location was prime, only a short walk to the beach, restaurants and St. John's Pass which we walked to our first night. I can't talk enough about the beach, and IPC has everything you need for the beach, chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, toys and a cart to lug it all down to the beach in! The Gulf is my favorite body of water and the beach was clean and fairly deserted. We saw dolphins swimming close by in the mornings which was amazing!!! If you like to stay at your cottage there is a pool and a Tiki hut to sit in and grills to use if you feel like cooking outdoors You're in short driving distance to a lot of great places along the coast and of course St. Petersburg (which we didn't make it into this trip) if you have time. But if you just choose to stay close to home and enjoy the beach, restaurants and privacy of this picturesque "Old Florida" lodging, you'll leave a very happy person. I highly recommend IPC and as part of the Superior Small Lodging group, you know you can count on the same quality every time you stay.

After an unpleasant experience with another area Electrician, I called Terry's. They were courteous and responsive and fixed the issues with my GFI outlet in about 15 minutes and charged a reasonable amount. I will use them for any electrical need that I have.

I was fortunate to find Barnie's coffee after moving from the Philadelphia area, and its been the only coffee I drink since we moved. I use their espresso beans, as well as their house blend decaf, but my favorites are their MIcro Roasts. Whenever I'm in Winter Park I make it a point to stop in and see what new coffees they have available. And I do use their very easy online ordering.

When I drove up to The Desoto Oceanview Inn, I immediately knew this wasn’t just another ocean-side resort. The care and detail that had gone into the landscaping gave the property a tropical island feel as I stepped through their welcoming entrance. (Certified Florida Friendly by Broward County) The Desoto Oceanview Inn is an Eco Friendly and Green Hotel, that takes great pride in their lush tropical feel as well as the way they take care of the property. A few feet from the Desoto is a very underused beach (complete with a lifeguard station). If you like a busier beach, its a few blocks away. Dining options are close by(walking distance) and very good. The Desoto also provides bicycles that you can ride down a nice bike path running along the beach. The Desoto provides a tranquil environment with tiki huts that are placed in the gardens and nicely lit at night. Every morning you’ll find a delicious vegan breakfast set out, and if you don’t feel like brewing your coffee in your room, theres a pod coffee maker with lots of different options as well as teas. The Desoto also provides yoga mats, beach chairs and umbrellas. And you can also find a very nice selection of books that you're encouraged to take home and/or exchange with your own paperbacks. Each unit is more like an apartment with a full kitchen, comfy chairs, and roomy bathrooms. You'll also find the Desoto has great free wifi (better than my Verizon Hotspot), there are no surprises on your bill. But the biggest plus is the attention to detail that your hosts Steven and Josias provide as well as their live in chef, who not only provides a tasty breakfast but afternoon snacks. You feel more like family than simply hotel guests. Make sure to book at least 3 nights at this property so you get to experience the real feel of Hollywood Beach and this lovely property.

My appointment was changed twice in one day then cancelled for the next morning. That was changed after I was told someone would be here within an hour. When the technician finally did come in the afternoon almost an hour after the time they gave me he wanted to charge me the $69 fee for the visit and the cost of replacing one GFI outlet of $193. plus tax of course which would have made it almost $300 for one GFI outlet. That seems a bit excessive to me based on all my dealings with Electricians in New Jersey. The other note is that their office is about 1 mile from my home. UPDATE: ACE called this morning to let me know they would wave the dispatch fee. I guess complaining is a good thing. UPDATE: The outlet was easily replace and upon inspection it was verified that it was the only problem. Cost $90

I was thrilled to be invited back into the Chocolate Kitchen to watch as they made some of their amazing chocolate creations. Its plain to see their employees love chocolate and love what they do. This of course translates into their products. I got to try some of their chocolate creations, including chocolate covered bacon, chocolate popcorn, chocolate strawberries, chocolate pretzels, chocolate graham crackers, chocolate oreo's and chocolate covered potato chips and Jami you were right the milk chocolate chips were my favorite! I am looking forward to going back soon to try out some of the Gelato they have at the store. If you love chocolate you want to make sure to put this on your to do list, plus you get to enjoy beautiful downtown Winter Park while your're there!
