Recent Longboat Key property reviews

  • Exceptional location and comfortable surroundings made for a memorable stay on Longboat Key.

    "I am very familiar with Longboat Key and all it has to offer and knew that the location of the Castllian on the Gulf side of the island was a terrific one. So, when I saw the listing I didn't delay in making contact. The location can't be beat. The Gulf and beach are only steps away and the Castillian also offers a nice size pool and tennis courts adjacent to the beach. The condo association provides beach chairs for guests, a most welcome amenity. Because this is an end unit, it has lots of light and the large balcony overlooking the Gulf and beach off the master bedroom and living room is an added advantage. All of the rooms and baths are very generous in size and having an eat in kitchen was a welcome plus. I did have family and friends to stay during the month and the unit was well supplied with everything we needed. Having an in unit washer and dryer as well as WiFi made life easy. The owner left lots of local information regarding dining choices and suggestions for activities and spa services. Longboat Key has lots to offer, Armand Circle is a short drive away, as is downtown Sarasota with all it has to offer. I love Longboat Key and Sarasota, so I am prejudiced. The owner was great to work with throughout. She was easy to contact and provided all the information and directions necessary for a smooth arrival, stay, and departure."

  • beautiful

    "My wife and I just got back to NJ and can't wait to return. The unit was perfect, clean throughout,you could tell the owners really took the time to make sure everything was like your home away from home, it really was a beautiful unit. The resort itself was outstanding, the beach and pool area were spotless and the staff was working hard at keeping it that way.The area restaurants were good and we enjoyed all the shops at St. Armands circle."

  • Paradise Found At Last!

    "We have been coming to this area for a number of years... and have found a fabulous retreat! The accommodations are well kept with all the comforts of home. Extremely clean and well maintained. Enjoy your breakfast out on the deck or the garden patio, and listen to all the sounds of the Island Birds under the palm trees. The Bay is across the street and you are sure to see a family of Egrets! The beautiful mystical Gulf of Mexico is only a few minute walk from the home. At night we enjoy going to Sarasota and Armands Circle."

  • Excellent experience

    "The house is very reasonably priced, is very dog friendly and has plenty of room. This was our first stay in the village, and for us, nowhere else will do. Very dog friendly, plenty of walking areas and lots of friendly people. Ate at Moore's once and MarVista several times. Very good food within walking distance. Also got my Pizza's at the Bayou Tavern in Whitney plaza. The bus stop is at the end of Broadway and can take you anywhere in Bradenton or Sarasota. Can't wait until next year."

Private Homes, Country Club Shores Travel Tips

The Beautiful Country Club Shores Vacation Rentals

Country Club Shores vacation rentals take the work out of your vacations -- and not just because all the yard work is done by the maintenance crews, either. For one thing, like all Longboat Key beach rentals, Country Club Shores has condos with all the amenities most of us wish we could afford to have at home. Country Club Shores condos all have great views, lots of room in beautiful surroundings and the ultimate in ease -- choosing to stay in them instead of any other place where you might be tempted to go slumming. After all, even in Longboat Key, there are still "less than ideal" places where you could theoretically spend your vacation time.

Longboat Key Beach Rentals:Always a Good Idea

It's pretty obvious that with the Gulf on the one side and the Sarasota Bay on the other, there are plenty of water related things to do in the Longboat Key area. How long has it been since you've gone fishing? Is there anything quite like grilling up something you caught yourself a little while ago? And how about getting your heart racing with a little skiing? With the kind of rentals you can get in Longboat Key as your base, the sky (and the horizon) is the limit to your aquatic adventures.

Country Club Shores Vacation Rentals: the Best of the Best

Country Club Shores is an awfully sweet place to stay. Some people might be a smidge intimidated by how spacious the condos are (even though they're still an amazing deal per square foot), and how great the views are. Being able to see the beach through a huge window, like looking at a painting -- and then being able to actually go outside and forget you're an adult and play around in the water -- priceless.
