  • Seastar Motel & Villas is located in the southern-most part of the resort on the Gulf of Mexico adjacent to Stump Pass State Park.  There is a beautiful temperature controlled pool located between the Sea Star Villas and the Sea Star Motel.
  • The Nautilus is a 4 story building which features two-bedroom units facing the Gulf and one bedrooom and efficiency units facing the bay. This building is the newest and visitors love the spacious and airy accommodations.
  • Sand Dollar Circle is the building which features our whimsical brightly colored clock tower. There are 12 Gulf front units on three stories. 11 are one bedrooms and 1 is a two bedroom.  A beautiful pool on the east side is bordered by five "Old Floida style - cottage type units.
  • Conch Courtyard features a charming array of vintage cottage-style units that are all brightly painted.  This is a favorite of family reunion groups due to the variety of accommodations and the proximity to the cabana and beach.
  • Dolphin Retreat is located in the northern-most area of the resort.  There are three studios and two one bedroom units surrounding a courtyard and two two-bedroom and two one-bedroom units on the beach.  Although these are among the oldest units, they have been updated and are gentle reminders of simpler days.
  • Manatee Manor is located at the southern end of the resort on the bay side.  A duplex has two units - both two-bedrooms.  Unit 145 is a 3-bedroom 2-bath house with a beautiful view of Lemon Bay.  It features a large kitchen and an open dining and living area.  There is an adjoining 1-bedroom unit which can be opened up to the house if so desired.  Our two southern-most docks are located behind these buildings.
  • Catfish Cove is the location of the office, boat ramp and Dock 3.  There is also a simple two-bedroom unit which is often requested by our longtime guests.  We suspect it is the easy access to the dock for terrific night fishing that draws people to Unit 147.
