planning a trip for our 30th anniversary. Will be traveling with another couple. Have looked at several of the hotels but also found condos/homes for rent for even better prices since we will be sharing. Any comments on house rentals vs hotels? I notice golf carts are the mode of transportation, however, have read they are about $60 per day! Is that true? Outrageous.

Very important to be able to play in the water/or swim/or snorkle from the beach. Is that possible here or is it too shallow. We went to the Florida Keys and it was knee deep and rocky everywhere.
