"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."

"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

"I searched many vacation rentals on Longbaot Key before finding this home. It is perfect, much better in person than in photos!! Jessica the manager is onsite and will answer any questions asap. My children played with her kids...lots of fun for them. Plenty of space.. there were 8 of us (3 adults 5 kids). Two boys took pull out sofa in loft area...never complained. 3 Full bathrooms are a BIG plus. Washer/Dryer, Grill and plently of dishes were also a plus. I also appriacted hand soap in every bathroom, toilet tissue/paper towels to get you started and the spice rack. Most places make you clean everything out when you leave. It was nice having salt, sugar, foil, plastic wrap and even some popcorn. Very private, we were the ONLY ones at the pool all week. Kids thought it was geat to swim after dark!! Short walk to beach, which also is very private. Only a few other families there. We fished of the dock area in back of property. Thank you Lori and Dan for sharing your home. Thank you Jessica for all your help. We hope to make it back soon!!"

"Our girl's getaway was a huge hit at this lovely home! Our mornings started with plenty of coffee and conversation in the breakfast area and then we took the bikes out each day for a long ride around the village. And the peacocks were a fun surprise! Then back to the house or to St. Armand's circle for lunch and shopping. Afternoons were spent typically spent at Coquina beach- the house had everything we needed- chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed Mar Vista the first night with delicious seafood, drinks and perfect weather! And Michelle from the rental office was always available via phone or text and took care of anything that we couldn't handle. We had a fabulous time on Longboat Key and can't wait to return!"
