                Our family has been vacationing in Longboat Key for many years, however our best two weeks were spent recently at Gulfside Villa. Was the listing accurate....yes.....but upon arrival we were all pleasantly surprised that everything was better than expected.....rooms larger...kitchen fabulously well stocked.....pool and furniture exceptional...and wonderful customer service by Consierge John. We were able to enjoy the beautiful beach, the Mote Aquarium, the exquisite Euphemia Haye restaurant, and the fun of St Armand's....ice cream included. This property gets my highest recommendation and we look forward to returning.

                Owner response: Thank you Becky! We look forward to hosting your family again :-)

                When searching for a home for our family vacations I look for one that is large enough to give everyone their own space, attractive furnishings and nice amenities. Gulfside Villa filled the bill perfectly. Our son and daughter in law were delighted to have their own master suite on the first floor not far from where their 2 year old slept. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the upstairs master suite with its' huge windows and panoramic views of the Gulf. And the queen bedroom upstairs was perfectly suited for our daughter. Although we went out to eat most nights, the kitchen was well appointed to make breakfast and lunch a breeze each day. With a 2 year old among us the location was perfect - a pool for lounging while he slept and only a short walk to the beach for shelling, walking, fishing, etc. Gulfside Villa was like staying in a luxurious 5-star hotel with all the coziness of home. Even a rainy day made for a fun game day indoors! If you are looking for the perfect place for your family to reconnect, Gulfside Villa is the place!

                Great home. Lots of things to do and privacy if you choose so. Had 9 family members stay comfortably and when the baby woke up, the doors were solid enough, you could not hear. Beach was close and pool was nice, except the birds who liked to go in the water. I hope to stay there again sometime.

                This property exceeded expectations in every way! The decor will appeal to those with a preference for sophisticated simplicity. With 4 couples in the home, there was ample privacy and space for everyone. The outdoor furnishings were comfortable and plentiful. One highlight of this home is the kitchen, which is outfitted with every possible appliance and amenity. We enjoyed cooking together in this space so much that we ate out only twice in 7 days. This home is located directly on the beach and we rarely saw more than a dozen other people in a given day. I highly recommend this property!

                Our stay created memories of a lifetime. Before leaving our home in Kentucky we researched our Florida destination for activities to fill our days but after arriving found that we were happiest to stay at the house with the pool, ocean and beach. Who could ask for more? The house was spacious and included a well-equipped kitchen. This home afforded our family of 8 enough room to have private space and also a common area for us to enjoy family time. The evenings were very special as we gathered on the deck to enjoy the stars, sound of the waves and the stories of the day. This truly was a time for us to experience a little piece of paradise.

                This is an absolute dream house if you are seeking a relaxing destination right on the beach. The villa has a stylish five star hotel interior and it doesn´t get any better, when you are enjoying the sunset from your very own terrace overlooking the sea. I highly recommend the villa without any reservation. Truly a dream!

                We invited our family from New England to come and join us for Thanksgiving at this beautiful home on Longboat Key. We saw the pictures online and like others have mentioned, they do not do this home justice. It's striking in person. We loved the master bedroom upstairs and the bathroom, so very large and spacious. There is also another master downstairs right off the living room. It is decorated very nicely. We enjoyed sitting under the retractable awning on very comfortable patio furniture. We were able to cook a big turkey dinner and they had nice dishes and cookware to use. The place has nice carpeting and was just cleaned before our arrival. Everything was spotless. The surrounding area has numerous restaurants that are great if you don't feel like cooking. You are about 12 miles from downtown Sarasota with so many cultural things to do also. The home has a very light and airy feel to it, we were all so comfortable. We've rented many condos and homes in the past and this by far was my favorite. We live in another part of Fl but we will certainly booking this beauty again down the road.

                We were very pleased with the property. Upon arrival we were met by the property manager and shown around the house. Pictures are very accurate. Nice furnishings and a well stocked kitchen. We would stay here again. Beach was quiet. I really appreciated the on site beach towels and laundry room with supplies. Thank you!

                Our family of five stayed at this beautiful House for two weeks. We had a brilliant time and enjoyed the lovely pool, the great terrace facing the beach and the excellently furnished Bedrooms and living room. Dwayne was very helpful, especially after we locked ourselves out on the first night (beware of the self locking sliding door in the kitchen).Stunning view from the panoramic window of the master bedroom. Loads of toys and noodles and beach towels for the pool and the ocean, table tennis and Tischfußball left no wishes.We will certainly try to come back.

                My family and I stayed a Gulfside Villa and had the best vacation experience there. The owner and assistant provided excellent customer service and the concierge was very accommodating with check in and check out times. The descriptions and pictures of the house are accurate but really can't capture how great it really is. It is meticulously maintained, very spacious, and the beach is steps out of the back door. The house was stocked with everything we needed during our stay and waking up with the ocean view every morning was such a treat. I would absolutely recommend this property and I look forward to staying there again!
