                            Very comfortable spacious house, with very nice pool. Lovely neighbours and pool man. Possibly a little dated but very clean and good value for expensive area. Very modern stove, and t.v.s everywhere. We found the bed comfortable. Loads of closet space, and heaps of condiments etc, plus loads of useful toiletries.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+.

                            This house could be the perfect spot for a vacation. It could but it's not. The pool is beautiful but you're never assured privacy because the neighbors across the street take care of the pool and drop in whenever! The furniture is very dated. The main complaint is the mattress's in the house are very bad. My husband had surgery in January on his neck so this really didn't help. The master bedroom is not a king sized bed! It's 2 twins put together and they don't match up. With all this being said the owner is very nice and the house is clean. The location is great! As I said this house could be great!

                            We have stayed at this property several times and enjoy it so much.There is everything you could possibly want here to make it a perfect vacation. No shortage of facilities. Location is excellent as it is at the north end of Longboat Key which makes it so easy to explore Anna Maria Island which has a different ambience to Longboat- best of both worlds. St Armands Circle,Ringling Museum and all the attractions of Sarasota are close at hand..

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, sightseeing.

                            If you want to go back home again and just be comfortable, this is it. Pool, canal to sit by, and beach very close-by. Two bicycles provided. No safety issues so I would bike over the short distance to the beach and leave the bike and watch the sunsets. Comfortable and roomy. Loved watching the green glowing light of the pool from the recliner, watching tv. Caged pool so leave the sliders open and enjoy the breeze. The seller, Connie, and her daughter, Luisa, were wonderful to work with. I loved "my" neighbors. The location is wonderul. Tension fell away when I did laps in the pool or ate my lunch by the canal as I tossed popcorn to the fish (they are bottom feeders and would not take the popcorn).

                            Recommended for: Adventure seekers, age 55+, people with disabilities, romantic getaway, families with teenagers, families with young children, girls getaway, sightseeing.

                            We stayed in this house for a month in August 2010 and enjoyed the location and the pool very much. The overall experience was comfortable and had wi -fi internet as well as three TVs with cable. The pool was great - warm and nicely maintained. While somewhat old furnishings were inside, the owner is working on some upgrades to the furnishings which will enhance the renting experience. The owner is very nice and easy to work with. The beach is about an 8 minute walk across the main Gulf road. It is very lovely there and nearly deserted in the summer. We liked Harry's little store down the road a mile for snacks and good sandwiches.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, families with teenagers.

                            Very comfortable homely and spacious accommodation in quiet position. Really well equipped,as is used by owners as vacation home. Short walk to beach and bus stop. Very pleasant owner and family.
