Umbrella Beach Club-townhouses right across from the beach. It is a small place and very nice. Corner of 64 and Gulf Road. It is a country type road not a major highway. So it is a minute to get to the beach. UBC has garages and two bikes.
Behind the resort is a plaza with Peaches and Shells Restaurant, a Walgreens, a bank and a grocer. We stayed there 4 years ago.
David, you are thinking about Manatee Ave. State Rd 64 also becomes Manatee ave once you get into town from the interstate. That goes across the bridge into the island and then intersects with Gulf Dr. on the beach. Umbrella is on the left or south side of 64/Manatee.
I have a question for those who have stayed at Umbrella Beach. We have a week booked in Nov and have read the reviews. Which units do you prefer the ones with the living area on the second floor above the parking or the ones with the bedrooms on the second floor and the living area above? We like to have a balcony with a table large enough to eat out. Do both types of units have this?
Our unit was bedrooms on the first level and living up for the view. Since I have always lived in a home with bedrooms upstairs it it took getting used to. I kept walking the wrong way most of the week. I didn't know they had another layout.
We were in unit B6 which faced the beach with a clear view. I think the A units are located directly behind them. I recall a little patio that faced the pool but forget if there was a table.
Really nice place-units are roomy in a quiet area.
