"We had a wonderful week staying at this condo. The view of the beach is very beautiful and the sunsets are spectacular. The beds were extremely comfortable and the condo was super clean. The one disadvantage is that there is no dishwasher. Also, the wireless internet connection was very spotty - sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't. There are two beach umbrellas and chairs in the master bedroom closet which we used everyday. Another lovely thing was that there were always beach chairs available for use on the beach at no cost and the beach was always quiet and never crowded. It made for a very relaxing getaway."

"My wife and two kids had a very pleasurable stay in this 1 bdrm unit at the Beachcomber. It was exactly as advertised. The after hours check-in, which I was worried was no problem. Very easy access to the beach and pool. The other guest were very friendly and a great source of local information. Many we spoke with had been coming there every year for 30 years and still love the condo and the location. Having the new Publix and CVS just across the street was an added bonus. We probably grilled on the sheltered back patio 3 of our 8 nights. The gas grill was simple to use and it was also a great place to watch the sunset a unique event in Longboat Key. You are so close to Sarasota you can be Downtown at the movie theater in 15 min. You must try the Columbia restaurant in St. Armound what a treat.
The highlight of our trip however was a sea turtle hatch-out right on our beach. The little guys were straying all over with no moon to guide them and we made sure about 12 more turtles made it safely to the sea. A once in a lifetime experience. Make sure when you go crabbing you use a red filter on your flashlight so as not to spook the huge female turtles that come ashore at night to lay eggs!
P.S. Our dealings from the booking process to the on-site management staff were flawless.
BOOK THIS CONDO!!!"

"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."

"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."
