Recent Longboat Key reviews

  • Great Place

    "Like the previous reviewer, I hate to give away this secret. What a fantastic place! Great location, property and rental experience. The house is modern and comfortable, with all the amenities and then some. The pool is a great feature, especially for kids. The owners have provided everything you need and are very responsive. We liked that the house was in a neighborhood, making it feel like home, yet easy walking distance to the bay and the beach. Restaurants and shops are very close by, with one bayside restaurant an easy walk from the property. With all that Long Boat Key has to offer, it is sometimes difficult to leave the comfort and appeal of this house. We stayed with another couple and the split master bedroom setup was perfect! No wonder it gets so many return renters, including us!"

  • 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."

  • Wonderful condo!

    "This condo is really nice! Each room is very spacious. The master bathroom has a large tile and block glass shower that I really liked. The master BR had a makeup table area, as well as another room with plenty of shelves, drawers and hangers--I would call it a closet normally, but it was it's own room! The furnishings are the best we've experienced in a condo, from the high def TV, great WIFI, spacious dinner table and very comfortable living room seating and bedroom beds, to the very comfortable furniture on the screened in lanai overlooking the beautiful beach and water of the Gulf of Mexico. I fell asleep on the reclining chair on the lanai one day. The breeze was so nice! The kitchen was very well appointed with marble counter tops and plenty of dishes, utensils and drink ware. The Nautica towels provided in the master bath were very nice! I hope to buy some for myself. The pool was very nice and never crowded. The parking area was just steps off of the elevator from the room. Just a few paces from the pool, was the beach. We saw manatees, dolphins and rays up close in the clear water. That was a thrill that we plan to experience again soon! We drove to several of the restaurants that are close by. Also, there's a nice recreation area open to the public just down the street along the bay. We walked there a few mornings to shoot some hoops (balls were provided) and enjoy the views of the boats on the bay. There were never any crowds there and the court was very well maintained. There is an Ace Hardware just down the street where you can rent bikes, if you choose, and other places will deliver kayaks for daily rentals. I wish I would have kayaked the gulf some...I'll do that next time, because we plan to go back! There is a Publix grocery just a mile or two south of the condo. It is a great store! This condo is great and I would highly recommend it to anybody looking to stay in Longboat Key and take in all of the beauty of the Gulf Keys and Sarasota area!"

  • Tom and Sue

    "Our experiences in Longboat for 2015 were excellent. The condo was in beautiful condition and ready to go when we arrived. We could not be happier. Jerry's condo is close to everything we need--the beaches, golf, shopping, dining and a beautiful pool. We found all of the owners warm and friendly and showed a genuine and gracious greeting to us. It was so much fun to see the friends we made last year return and share many positive laughs around the pool at night. Jerry, thank you for everything again this year. We will be returning next year. We love Longboat Key!"
