What a gem!!!
"I have always wanted to stay in a cottage near the beach and finally made the decision to with this trip to Lido Key. I am so in love I don't want to go home!! I am writing this review on my last day. The screened in porch is to die for! Don't worry if it is hot outside there are to industrial sized fans (that aren't loud) to keep the breeze moving enabling you to enjoy the screened porch anytime of day. The kitchen is well stocked, the washer and dryer work great and are easy to use. There are beach chairs and beach towels for the short walk or ride to Lido Key beach. The living room has a really comfy sofa and two recliners that are electric and very comfortable!!! The beds are covered in 100% cotton linens and the mattresses are divine!! Keep in mind this is a cottage and has some uneven floors and rustic looks about it but that is what gives it the wonderful character!! I have never stayed in the same place twice but my mother and I are already looking to rebook this property in the fall. The cleaning crew had the place spotless when we arrived better than many 4 stars resorts I have stayed in. They left their signature cards on the beds, toilets and other parts of the house so that you were assured that cleaned all surfaces!! I met Dallas at Florida Vacation Connection because of an issue with the TV (it had come unplugged) and she came out on her Saturday evening to resolve the problem. She is a real asset to the management company and very easy to deal with! I can't wait to return and will be sad to go tomorrow!"

"What a great vacation we had! We are keeping the view of the pool, canal and palm trees in our minds. The house was furnished very tastefully and was very roomy. Everything that you needed on a vacation was available for you. The information binder offered many suggestions about where to eat and what places to visit. We did as much as we could and had a wonderful time! We cannot wait to return next year and we thank our hosts for being so kind and professional."

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!"

"This was our first rental in this area. It was perfect. Denise was very responsive to any questions that we may have had. I think that our favorite part was having our breakfast on the lanai. It had a beautiful view and we loved listening to the waves. The condo itself was exceptionally clean and well-equipped. We appreciated the fact that Denise left us many items to get started so that we didn’t have to rush immediately to the store. Longboat Key is a very convenient location to Sarasota and St. Armands. We found the people in the building very friendly. We would highly recommend renting this unit."
