Recent Longboat Key reviews

  • Heaven on Earth

    "This has been my fifth year at Casa del Mar and like a fine wine, it just gets better with age. I could go on and on about the beach and the Gulf of Mexico, but I think I will let the attached picture do the talking for me. So that leaves me to describe the accommodations. This will be my third different condo, and each one is unique within itself. The layout of each condo is a bit different depending on whether you are on the ground floor, second floor, end or middle. My unit had a beautifully vaulted ceiling making the condo seem comfortably spacious. Each unit is uniquely decorated, so it makes for great adventure when you change units each year. I have been going to Sarasota for the past thirty years and never run out of things to see or do. The entire area is incredible, and if you are adventurous Tampa, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg are only an hour away. I always read the previously posted reviews for the year, curious as to what people might complain about since I never can find fault with Casa. It always seems as though the people complaining have something that is broken or in need of repair, but then wait until they check out to bring it to the staff's attention. Most often people don't say anything prior to leaving, which then creates the problem for the next guest. When I went to take my shower, the tub drained very slowly. I told the staff and within ten minutes their maintenance person was there and fixed the problem. While Casa del Mar is as close to perfection as it gets, there will always be minor exceptions, but the difference in Casa and other places I have stayed, is how these exceptions are handled. The resort is heaven on earth and the staff are the angels. Try it, you'll love it."

  • Beautiful condo

    "My husband and I have stayed in this condo during the month of November for the past 3 years and have enjoyed the comfort and amenities this location provides. The condo itself is beautiful...we found new furnishings this year when we arrived...very tasteful and comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped and there are always plenty of towels available. The walk-in closet is very roomy with lots of hangers. We especially enjoyed relaxing on the deck that overlooks the beach/ocean and spans the length of the living room and bedroom. It was fun sitting out in the morning having breakfast and being treated to dolphins playfully swimming by and enjoying a glass of wine in the late afternoon enjoying the beautiful sunsets. We also enjoyed using the equipment in the exercise room and the lovely pool. If you enjoy relaxing on the beach there are also comfortable lounge chairs available. The owners have been very attentive and sincerely interested in making sure we were comfortable. We hated to leave but are looking forward to our next visit."

  • Lovely vacation

    "Our family of 4 just spent 10 wonderful days at this absolutely lovely beach cottage. It was comfortable, clean, quiet and the kitchen had everything we needed in order to prepare and enjoy delicious meals. We loved the outdoor shower and outside patio."

  • February, 2014

    "We spent the month of February, 2014, in Longboat Key at this lovely home. The house is filled with light, beautifully appointed, and has every convenience one could want. It is less than a five minute walk to a gorgeous beach and has a lap pool set in the very private and beautifully landscaped back yard area along a canal. The kitchen was designed with cooks in mind and opens onto a deck where we enjoyed a number of meals, often using the gas fired grill. We played a lot of golf on courses in the Sarasota/Bradenton area and were always able to make tee times when we wanted. This was our first experience in Florida and we were impressed; the owners were responsive, helpful, and attentive and we highly recommend this house. We are going to try other areas in the state, but we will definitely return--this is a great place to stay."
