Fantastic secluded beach getaway location! Will recommend! Will return!
"My wife & I, along with our 5 year old daughter stayed one week from 6/3-6/9. It was wonderful, Everything we read on VRBO and much more! Mark was great, making sure we had everything we needed. The Condo was clean, has regular beach chairs, fully reclining beach chairs, beach toys, inflatables, a cooler. The kitchen is stocked with cups, plates, everything you need to cook. Coin washer and dryers in the utitily shed in back. Outdoor shower also. It is just a perfect getaway spot with the best nearly private beach right across the road. It takes just a minute to get to the beach and even in the summer there were only a few people there every day but far enough away to feel like you have your own private beach spot. Nothing like the public beach access areas you see in most areas. No mega high rises near. Just beach front homes, quiet sunshine and waves. Also, there is a Publix grocery store on the island just minutes away and a CVS. If you are searching for that "perfect beach getaway"...... this is it!"

"Ive been going to LBK since i was young, and wanted to relive some memories. This studio was just perfect! After some research, this was literally the closest location to the beach i could find! The newly decorated unit was tropical & charming, free wifi for those who need to check up on work, or the kids, but the scenery & location was what made this place so amazing! The ocean view was breathtaking! Step out onto the patio with chairs & table where we spent plenty of time admiring scenery &, weather, beautiful tropical plants and flowers... water sports and biking was available, shops & restaurants very close by. I didnt want to leave, and am positive I'll be returning! Im an artist, and was totally inspired by the sunsets..
Also, the price was very reasonable, and everything was included. NO extra hidden fees.
The office staff was kind and helpful, & supplied beach towels, also a public computer & printer for reserving and printing airplane boarding passes. very convenient!
Thanks again for allowing me to share your little slice of paradise! <3

"Great home for our extended family get together. Roomy, clean with a great kitchen and comfortable bedrooms and lots of beachgear.
I used to have a vacation rental that was half the size of this home. Renters have no idea how difficult it is to keep up a rental when things develop wear and tear much quicker than in your own home
My rental was 1/2 the size of this home and we were constantly repairing things so this place for the size we found to be in very good condition.
I never met the owner and have no interaction other than from e-mails but based on my own experience as a rental owner this home has been well attended to and I appreciated getting back our damage deposit after just a few days.
Last but not least the pool has an.adjacent tiki bar and grill which was a great place to kick back and relax. We could not walk to the beach but it was a minute drive and they had a beach stroller to carry belongings which made it convenient.
For the size of the place and being on Longboat Key the home is a very good deal."

"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."
