Supermarkets like Winn Dixie and Publix are within walking distance of the house, or you can drive down Mariner Boulevard to Cortez Boulevard (SR50) where you’ll find a Wal Mart Superstore, Publix, Walgreens, CVS, Target, Bealls, and many other retail chains.

A Post Office is a few minutes away and there are numerous other speciality shops around the area.

There are, of course, all the usual restaurants and fast food outlets ranging from barbecue, pub, buffet, and family restaurants through to specialist restaurants of a high standard. One of our favourites for brunch or lunch is First Watch, on Cortez Boulevard.
