My family and I took a much needed quick getaway this weekend! Some of our best family beach resorts in Florida is to the The Resort on Coco Beach. Yes, and it was right on time too! with the amount of stress we have been going through.

If you have a large family like mine than you know how hard it is to travel with kids and finding family friendly hotels or family friendly resorts. It is really something you have to research and look into closely.

For one you want to make sure you will be getting enough bang for your buck,  in the amount of time that you are staying. While still having a little bit of spending money on other things. We love coming to the Resort on Coco Beach in Florida. I reiterate Florida since their is also one in south america. 😉

Just to make sure you don't get confused.

We have been here many times, mainly because how close it is to my home. About an hour depending on traffic. However, with city life comes a whole lot of traffic.  I almost thought we were not going to make it there since  the drive there  was a really bad. We got stuck in traffic with a car accident and we almost ran out of gas on the freeway.

The forecast for the weather this past weekend was all about the for-coming storms all week long. However that did not happen and we spent the whole beach weekend with lots and lots of sunniness.

Nothing was not going to stop our afternoon, we had a loads of fun!!

The one thing I love about going to family friendly beach resorts is that you will always find something for the kids to do and something for yourself. Like being able to have drinks by the pool at their  Tiki Bar.  The guy at the bar was okay with making our drinks, but the pina colada could use a little  improvement.

Well that's what the kids told me. Lol..

I love the rooms since they are pretty much condo's being rented out to families to use and stay as long as they want. With access to the beach, the full arcade room, and movie room and they even have live shows throughout the week . Such as a live animal show every Monday night featuring reptiles and other zoo creatures. This resort is really one the closets beach resorts in Florida that we love. Mainly when we want a quick getaway and more so for its laid back coco beach feel. If you want that laid back vibe than coco beach is a great beach for that.

The rooms in the resort are really spacious as you can see in the video below. The Rooms range from about 240.00 a night to 120.00 a night on the off season. But hey for all that you get  with a full gym, animal shows, private beach access no extra room charges and a lovely staff. What more could you ask for if the whole family is happy.

 

Most rooms are two bedrooms are more, with a full kitchen, stocked with dishes, pots, pans, etc… Full living room, master bath and shower. Kids room with tow twin beds, a second bathroom and Pull out couch. Tv's are in each room with full cable and Wi-Fi.

In fact you would save a lot more if you got the rooms and didn't eat out but cooked food in your rooms by shopping at the publix right next to resort.

Really, affordable and really fun, fun.

We love this place, look at my kids hustling to get inside. My little ducks following behind their mamma. 😉

 

I have a whole bunch of kids! Following their momma. #ilovemykids #quickgetaway #cocobeachflorida

This past weekend the family and I got a chance to get away this weekend and spend some time with each other. Which was very much needed after coming off a very long week, and also being that it was the end of spring break for the kiddo's. To top it off we were not able to go anywhere during the week except  the backyard pool.  Which is given during the spring and summer time here at our house.

My family and I love to travel but since my husbands car accident this time last year money has been tight and really has us counting our pennies down to the last dollar, just to save a few.  However, that is a whole different topic all in it self.

I stay in Central Florida so its no surprise that the beach is not that far away for me to just pack up and head to the beach for a day and drive back home. However, it is much more fun we you can plan it out and drive up there and stay on the beach. Eat some dinner, take the kiddo's to breakfast and just lounge by the pool! Better yet when you can walk along the shore of the beach and do some natural Earthing(picking up all on those electromagnetic energy 😉 )

You can learn more about that by reading the book. 😉

We had a convention this weekend that we went to right in Daytona, Beach Fl so it was the perfect time to pack up and just stay the night. I had to find a hotel room at the last moment however. Which is hard to since it is still spring break for the next couple of weeks. This past weekend trying to find a room for a Saturday night stay was sooo hard.

To say the least……  ;-(

At the last moment when I was about to give up, while I was looking on Booking.com I was able to find a room. That would accommodate a family of 6. When you have a large family you need a suite with a kitchen, A pull out bed at least double beds. We usually get two room suites when staying more than three days somewhere.

But for times like this when you only want to stay a night or two, and in a pinch anything will do.

We lucked out on Perrys Ocean Side Beach Resort in Daytona, Beach Florida.  Perry's Ocean Side Beach Resort was great! Very family friendly with a breakfast diner right next door with affordable prices. All though in the suite itself you will have a kitchen with a dinette set.

There is even a beach store and grocery store right across the street directly in front the resort. Perry's has two large clean pools, a Tiki Bar and even a kiddie pool! Plenty of patio furniture with grills located outside facing the beach for you to grill with your family.

We were a little nervous staying here at fist since it was last minute planning. However, I will say since it is so family friendly and spacious and I know that it will be a spot we will return to time and time again.

If you want to pack up and stay at a Daytona beach kid friendly Resorts , than Perry's is a spot you might want to look at in Daytona, Beach Fl.

Our total Stay was less than 230.00 for the night, which is not bad since everything was booked and it is Spring Break!

So this month is Family Reunion month so, this past weekend my husband and I took the kids to Folkston, Georgia to a family gathering my grandmother's family organized.  It was a one night overnight stay where I got to see many of my cousins and let my children meet some of their family members.  My Dad's moms family is from Georgia and I was not born there so ever since I was little my mom would take us up there each year so that we would get to know our family members.  I am so grateful that she did that, because I know too many people who parents either got divorced when they were younger and never got to continue to see both parts of their family.

Which is why to this day, I love to teach my kids about where both sides of their parents came from.  The only thing now is that now that I'm older I am taking my kids along with me this time and a husband.

So with that comes #hastaglittlekidproblems.

Where little kids fight , cry and  having four boys  that need their own space does not help either.  So I just chose not to stay at some one homes and but rather book a room at the Inn at Folkston.

The Bed and Breakfast at the Inn of Folkston is a beautiful old world 19th century home, that has – I think about 7 bedrooms. Each room is decorated with its own train theme. The owner of the home is an retired couple who's husband is a second generation retired railroad conductor.  Soon as we got there we felt like we were right at home, I was little nervous at first because I have never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast Before. I'm pretty use to the huge luxury resorts suites that we tend to go too.

The Inn at Folkston helped to ease all those fears, my children loved the place.  The room was so huge and spacious at that. We had two full queen beds in our family room  which were so comfortable and clean! Along with a pull out bed and a large private bathroom. I thought that was pretty cool.




Maybe, that's just me because I thought we were going to have to share a bathroom or something.  Lol! 😉

Since we were only staying for one night, and leaving the next day.  The couple and their granddaughter served us breakfast the next morning and I felt like I was taken back in time to 19th century way of living.

Just a beautiful place and we had a great stay.

I know for sure now that when we do go back up there to visit family we will return back to the bed and Breakfast inn in  Folkson, heck I might even stay at more across the country.

Since we do tend to travel when we can.  😉

 

How about you, have you ever stayed at a Bed and Breakfast Before?
