  • Relaxing, peaceful and exquisite place to unwind.

    "The condo we stayed in is cheerful, fun and airy! The spacious 5th floor balcony has long distance views across Gulf Of Mexico Drive of Sarasota Bay. The pool is located a step away from the beach overlooking the Gulf. My husband has been coming to Longboat Key since the mid 1970's and since we visited together for the 1st time in 1990 we have made Longboat Key and the Beachcomber our winter vacation spot. The recent renovations has made it even more beautiful then before. The boys enjoyed the pool, beach, and fishing in the Gulf. We loved sitting on the beach and watching the beautiful sunset before going out to dinner. There are many things to due close to the condo. Having the grocery store across the street is very handy as well. As the reviewer before me stated there are so many attractions, beaches, restaurants, and shopping in close proximity. I would most definitely recommend the Beachcomber to friends and family and we will continue to vacation at the Beachcomber for many years to come."

  • A Perfect Family Getaway

    "We stayed at the house for a week during March 2014. We had my wife three children (adults) and my daughter in-law and two grandchildren. The house was perfect. Of course it always helps to have nice weather which we did. The house is well maintained on one of the finger streets on the north end of the island on the bay side. The kitchen is well laid out and reasonably equipped. We did a lot of cooking. There were even extras like spices and cooking oils available if needed. There is a master bedroom, and bath suite on the top floor. It is a lovely room with a comfortable bed and a nice view of the canal and the pool. The pool is heated and easy to control. The other bedrooms were also well laid out with clean modern baths. The neighbors are all friendly and have known the owners for years and seem very comfortable with guests staying in the house. The maintenance person is available and very helpful. The beach is about a ten minute walk. There are not many beach access points on Longboat Key but this is by one of them. You can park by the church and there always appeared to be spaces available but we ended up always walking. The beach is beautiful and fairly private. If you want the crowds go north ten minutes just over the bridge to Coquina Beach in Bradenton. It is a beautiful beach and you can get ice-cream and even a beer. Further north is more of what you would expect of a beach town, little shops, restaurants, pizza. Going south you are headed towards Sarasota and St. Armand’s Circle. It has more upscale shops and restaurants. Also think about DryDock on Longboat Key. Make reservations at least a week in advance. Go out for a kayak trip. You will see dolphins, egrets and Great Blue Herons. We had our own personal Great Blue Heron that hung out at the pool and an egret that hung around also. You can rent a boat fairly close by but in the end we did not have enough time. It is about an hour to Busch Gardens in Tampa. Try not to leave the island after 3:00 PM. The traffic is very heavy. So stay near the house if you can and enjoy. The owner is terrific to deal with and very prompt in answering all our questions. In sum it is a terrific place to stay."
