North, Mid or South?

My sister and I are considering renting a Mermaid Cottage on the island for our parents for their 40th Wedding Anniversary. Which location is best - North Beach, Mid Island or South Beach?

They like quiet, partying and people watching or a little of both? North is quiet, south is the kids and the crowds, you could walk to either from the middle.

I am talking about along the beach, mid Island may mean several blocks from the beach which is not bad, just different.

Also, North requires driving to any stores assuming you are close to the beach so if they like walking to numerous restaurants, like (mediocre) gift/souvenier shops and/or want to pick up simple groceries then the South side is "better". I still don't know the area quite well enough to know what mid island refers to but if they tell you its near the Desoto Beach Hotel, then that area is close to a convenience store or two and one fabulous restaurant (Sunday Cafe) but its not particularly attractive IMHO.

I second the above. The S end seems to be more fun unless your folks like it quiet. I hope they enjoy their trip.
