    "First of all, this is a LARGE 2 bedroom 2 bath condo. The view of the ocean from the living room and master bedroom is breathtaking. Beautiful pool and grounds!! Our unit was extremely clean and was aesthetic and well suited for an ocean front setting. The mattresses in the units were very supportive and comfortable. The owners are friendly, accommodating, and working with them was very efficient and pleasant. Our overall experience was fantastic and we'll definitely be back."

  • 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."

Castillian Travel Tips

When you finally get time away from that cubicle office, make sure that you don't spend your vacation boxed into a chain hotel or cramped motel room. When you think outside the box, you'll discover that vacation rentals are the most comfortable, liberating way to see the world.

Castillian Vacation Rentals Make it Personal

When you plan your trip to Florida, look no further than Castillian vacation rentals. These spacious Longboat Key beach rentals get closer to the beach than any hotel and provide an individualized, luxurious, yet home-like atmosphere. Multiple bedrooms give guests privacy, while generous gathering spaces, like the screened-in lanais on every floor, give Castillian condos a social quality. Prepare meals in the full kitchen and enjoy the convenience of a washer and dryer, as well as the 900 feet of private beach, the tennis court, the pool, and the hot tub that all guests are given access to.

Longboat Key Attractions

Longboat Key does its best to tempt you out of the ideal comfort of Castillian vacation rentals. Relaxing on the beach isn't the only waterside activity that visitors enjoy. Many fish off the nearby pier, jet ski, parasail, or go snorkeling. Hiring a boat or joining a kayak tour of Sarasota Bay is a rewarding venture that puts you in touch with some of Florida's most iconic sights, including mangrove forests, dolphins, and manatees.

Saint Armands Circle is another favorite attraction for visitors to Longboat Key beach rentals. Browse through more than 130 unique stores in this lushly tropical shopping center, get a massage, enjoy a meal at one of the gourmet restaurants, and finish up with a scoop of ice cream from Big Olaf Creamery or Scoop Daddy's. When you return to your home-away-from home at Castillian condos, you'll know this vacation has been a step outside the box.
