Recent Longboat Key property reviews

  • Hidden Gem in a Resort Town

    "Our very first trip to the Gulf Coast and we've fallen in love! Brian's place is the perfect getaway for family relaxation. Longboat Key is more residential and therefore, a great place for peace and quiet. The pool, tennis, and gym are a great bonus. I am a teacher and traveled with my three teens: rising college freshman, high school sophomore, and eighth grader. We wanted the beach, and a cute place to play cards and cook meals together. This place delivered! All activities (ie. ice cream, shopping, piers) are well within driving distance. (I will say that next year my kids want to stay where there is a bit more action. Fickle teenagers!!!) Brian was responsive to inquiries and when a problem cropped up at the house during our stay, he was there and had the issue fixed within hours. Pleasant to work with via email and also meet in person! Thank you for sharing your place with us!"

  • Great summer vacation spot

    "We really enjoyed our stay in Longboat Key due in large part to the location of this condo and its proximity to the beach. Its on the first floor and only about 100 feet from the beach. The condo was the right size for my family and very comfortable. The owner, Mark, gave us some great ideas for dinner as well as leisure activities. On that note, don't miss Harry's Continental which is must in LBK and is within a short walk of the condo. Mark was also very responsive whenever we had questions about the condo. During our stay we had an issue with a light switch and Mark had an electrician over to the condo and fixed within a few hours. I would recommend this condo to anyone that wants a relaxing vacation with uncrowded beaches and fantastic sunsets."

  • Beautiful Mansion by the Sea

    "Our family had a fabulous time vacationing in your home. The house and furnishings are exquisite and we had everything we needed to make our stay feel like home. We were fortunate enough to see dolphins and manatees playing in the surf while finding exotic seashells on our private beach. The grassy lawn was a wonderful touch to soothe hot feet at the end of the day. Watching the sun set over the turquoise waters was an amazing experience. I would recommend renting a boat from Cannons Marina for a fun day at sea. We were able to boat in front of the house and take pictures of our beautiful vacation mansion by the sea. The kids especially loved tubing and exploring "Beer Can Island" at the north end of Longboat Key as well as waiting with anticipation for the sea turtle nests to reveal their hatchlings. My family will always remember this as one of our best vacation experiences ever."

  • 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."
