"While visiting family on Longboat Key, we stayed at this charming house with all the amenities of home. We enjoyed our morning coffee out on the deck and watched the local people go off to work! Walking across the street to Mar Vista Restaurant was also fun. We will definitely be staying here again."

"I have always wanted to stay in a cottage near the beach and finally made the decision to with this trip to Lido Key. I am so in love I don't want to go home!! I am writing this review on my last day. The screened in porch is to die for! Don't worry if it is hot outside there are to industrial sized fans (that aren't loud) to keep the breeze moving enabling you to enjoy the screened porch anytime of day. The kitchen is well stocked, the washer and dryer work great and are easy to use. There are beach chairs and beach towels for the short walk or ride to Lido Key beach. The living room has a really comfy sofa and two recliners that are electric and very comfortable!!! The beds are covered in 100% cotton linens and the mattresses are divine!! Keep in mind this is a cottage and has some uneven floors and rustic looks about it but that is what gives it the wonderful character!! I have never stayed in the same place twice but my mother and I are already looking to rebook this property in the fall. The cleaning crew had the place spotless when we arrived better than many 4 stars resorts I have stayed in. They left their signature cards on the beds, toilets and other parts of the house so that you were assured that cleaned all surfaces!! I met Dallas at Florida Vacation Connection because of an issue with the TV (it had come unplugged) and she came out on her Saturday evening to resolve the problem. She is a real asset to the management company and very easy to deal with! I can't wait to return and will be sad to go tomorrow!"

"My husband and I have enjoyed the last two winter seasons (2014 & 2015) at this wonderful property. The owner is such a pleasure to work with and does make you feel very at home. The house if full of delightful artwork...very unusual for a rental...and we were always seeing something new that we hadn't noticed before. The kitchen is up to date and fully equipped including the owners' pantry which they generously share. The bathrooms are large and lovely. When family visited, they spent a good deal of time in the pool. It was so nice to step out the back door and go for a swim and there is plenty of seating around the lanai. There is also a private beach club only 5 min. by car or 10 min. on a bike with restrooms and showers, picnic tables, grills, etc. We loved taking a glass of wine to the beach to watch the incredible sunsets over the gulf. Publix and CVS are "right around the corner". The whole area has lots of good restaurants to choose from and it is fun shopping on St. Armand's Circle as well as downtown Sarasota which has a marvelous performing arts center, opera house and live theater. Longboat Key is beautiful and this property is in a perfect location to enjoy all the area has to offer(golf, tennis, boating, culture) or to simply relax and read a good book. We highly recommend it and certainly hope to return."

"My wife and I have been to the Beachcomber and the same apartment for the month of May over the last 3 years
The apartment is well furnished and comfortable and being right on the beach you wake up on occasions to Dolphins swimming in the ocean. The complex is well run with all facilities and helpful staff to help with any queries raised. There are a variety of good quality restaurants a short drive away plus the theatre in Sarasota,so after a hard day on the beach there is plenty to do. The kitchen is well designed and with Publix over the road plenty of "Cook in" ideas for an evening to relax and take in the magnificent sunsets etc."
