I live in paradise… so, why would I want to go anywhere else, you ask?
Because you can never have too much paradise!
And instead of talking about real estate all the time, I occasionally I like to blog about places to go and things to do in Southwest Florida.
Last time, I wrote about a Trip to Barefoot Beach.
This time it’s all about the perfect Mother’s Day weekend at the Hyatt Coconut Point Resort and Spa in Estero, Florida (gratis of very generous son and daughter-in-law). Wife allowed me to accompany her. :)
Since the resort is only about a 35 minute drive from our home in North Fort Myers, we started early Saturday morning to take advantage of early check-in.
What fun we had splashing in the gigantic kiddie pool with our 3 year old granddaughter!
Lunch at the hotel’s Corkscrew PoolBar & Grill offered some of the best drinks, burgers, sandwiches and salads. I’d highly recommend YoYo’s Caribbean Burger – a little sweet, a little spicy and j-u-i-c-e-y!
After our little 3 year old peep left for a nap, Grandma and I quickly moved to the one of two adult pools. Aah… peace and quiet, a good novel by “Robin Cook” and a small nap in the sun kept me busy for the rest of the afternoon.
Just a few blocks from the resort is the Coconut Point Mall – the largest outdoor mall in Southwest Florida. What Mom doesn’t love some great shopping?
We enjoyed an awesome dinner Ruth Chris’s Steakhouse and did some shopping.
Sunday morning, our daughter and son-in-law from Cape Coral joined us at the pool for coffee and Danish.
Not only is the resort near great shopping , but it is just a 30 minute boat ride on the Nautilus II to Hyatt’s private beach.
Beautiful white sugar sand and the gorgeous Gulf of Mexico. (Ask the resort to pack a lunch for you because there is no food service at the beach).
After a few hours of swimming and shell hunting in the warm Florida sun we return by water taxi to the marina and hotel.
Wonder what plans our children have for Father’s Day?
