"My wife and two kids had a very pleasurable stay in this 1 bdrm unit at the Beachcomber. It was exactly as advertised. The after hours check-in, which I was worried was no problem. Very easy access to the beach and pool. The other guest were very friendly and a great source of local information. Many we spoke with had been coming there every year for 30 years and still love the condo and the location. Having the new Publix and CVS just across the street was an added bonus. We probably grilled on the sheltered back patio 3 of our 8 nights. The gas grill was simple to use and it was also a great place to watch the sunset a unique event in Longboat Key. You are so close to Sarasota you can be Downtown at the movie theater in 15 min. You must try the Columbia restaurant in St. Armound what a treat.
The highlight of our trip however was a sea turtle hatch-out right on our beach. The little guys were straying all over with no moon to guide them and we made sure about 12 more turtles made it safely to the sea. A once in a lifetime experience. Make sure when you go crabbing you use a red filter on your flashlight so as not to spook the huge female turtles that come ashore at night to lay eggs!
P.S. Our dealings from the booking process to the on-site management staff were flawless.
BOOK THIS CONDO!!!"

"This was the second year that we spent our anniversary on Longboat Key. The house is clean, quiet, comfortable, cool, & very private. Yes, the house is lacking good kitchen pans & extras for those of us who enjoy cooking. It also lacked dish soap & hand soap but those can be purchased at Harry's just a short walk away. We ate out at The Lazy Lobster, Dry Dock, Blue Dolphin Cafe, Rod n Reel & all of it was fabulous! The beach is clean & beautiful & just a short walk away. I think the outdoor shower is our favorite thing about the house! It's wonderful after a day on the beach! We hope to return again next year!"

"What a place! We have stayed on Long Boat Key before but will definitely be interested in coming back to "the Cabana". Very nice place to stay, close to a ton of attractions, BEAUTIFUL beach very close by, excellent restaurants, and to top it all off a pool in the back yard! We loved our stay! Very kid friendly yet nice for a couples get away! Will definitely look into coming back again."

"We had a wonderful week staying at this condo. The view of the beach is very beautiful and the sunsets are spectacular. The beds were extremely comfortable and the condo was super clean. The one disadvantage is that there is no dishwasher. Also, the wireless internet connection was very spotty - sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't. There are two beach umbrellas and chairs in the master bedroom closet which we used everyday. Another lovely thing was that there were always beach chairs available for use on the beach at no cost and the beach was always quiet and never crowded. It made for a very relaxing getaway."
