"An attractive and lovingly maintained bungalow with two small and Spartan bedrooms but exceptionally spacious and comfortable master bedroom and large living area and kitchen. It is generously stocked with linens and bath and beach towels and other conveniences. Both bathrooms have been updated and everything works, is spotlessly clean and smells fresh."

"My husband and I were here for a week and had a fantastic experience. The location was perfect. Close to Publix and great restaurants a short drive away. Took a trip into Anna Maria Island and Sarasota during our stay and had great meals at the restaurants we visited but we were quite content to hang out and have dinner at our studio. Really liked Owens Fish Camp in Sarasota that was recommended by a bartender in a nice bar/restaurant in St. Armand's Circle. The Dry Dock had a beautiful view and excellent seafood. The highlight of our vacation was relaxing after dinner to watch the majestic sunsets. Great place to stay for couples for a romantic getaway or a family with small children. So convenient to walking out on the white sand and putting up an umbrella and chairs without trekking over dunes and walkways. We definitely plan to return. We were fortunate to meet the owner which made our stay there even more special. Very clean grounds and polite staff. Highly recommend staying here and hope we have friends join us next year at the Diplomat. Of course, would recommend couples and extended families inquire about other well-appointed units. We want ours all to ourselves!"

"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!"

"We never would have chosen Florida for a June vacation, but a Tampa wedding brought us down. We are happy we chose to stay the week in Longboat Key. This house was perfect, cool and comfortable. Location was excellent - a quick walk to the warm Gulf Waters. Quiet beach. Great restaurants. The only warning I would give for those travelers like us that like to cook - kitchen had none of the extras we normally find in house rentals such as foil, plastic wrap, paper plates, spices beyond salt and pepper, etc... Scope it out before you shop as you may need to supply these. We had a fabulous week!"
