"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!"

"My wife and I have been to the Beachcomber and the same apartment for the month of May over the last 3 years
The apartment is well furnished and comfortable and being right on the beach you wake up on occasions to Dolphins swimming in the ocean. The complex is well run with all facilities and helpful staff to help with any queries raised. There are a variety of good quality restaurants a short drive away plus the theatre in Sarasota,so after a hard day on the beach there is plenty to do. The kitchen is well designed and with Publix over the road plenty of "Cook in" ideas for an evening to relax and take in the magnificent sunsets etc."

"We really enjoyed this beautiful home. It had everything we needed and is very well taking care of. We appreciated not having to buy paper goods and soaps. The walk to the beach is few minutes and we felt like we were on a gorgeous deserted island! very quiet and pristine. Saw some dolphins and all sorts of wild life. There is construction next door but you could barely hear anything and the builders were very courteous. The manager Jessica responds super quickly to any questions and is wonderful to deal with. We really had a good time and came back home very relaxed! Thank you again Jessica for making our stay very comfortable. Audrey & William"

"My boyfriend and I stayed there and the place was amazing! Everything we needed was there from extra towels to blender and everything in between. There was a wonderful park that we could walk to and the pool was much larger than a postage stamp. Over all our trip was amazing and the house was perfect. If we come back to longboat we will be staying there again!!!
