Recent Longboat Key property reviews

  • Great location, great condo, great price!

    "We stayed for 8 days in this condo and enjoyed it thoroughly. It's updated, and has a great view of the ocean. And it was reasonably priced, which seems to be uncommon on Longboat Key. We would stay again and hope to next year!"

  • Wonderful home, great views, gracious owners

    "Our family stayed here for one week and we enjoyed every minute of it. The views are great and the layout of the home was just right. This up-to-date home is well-cared for and tastefully decorated. The owner was timely with responses to our e-mails and questions and answered all of our questions at our arrival as well. The canal home is in a nice, quiet neighborhood. Situated with a view of the inter-coastal, it is only a few minutes walk to the beach. Lots to do nearby: beaches, MOTE marine aquarium, SOS bird sanctuary and Ana Maria Island."

  • February, 2014

    "We spent the month of February, 2014, in Longboat Key at this lovely home. The house is filled with light, beautifully appointed, and has every convenience one could want. It is less than a five minute walk to a gorgeous beach and has a lap pool set in the very private and beautifully landscaped back yard area along a canal. The kitchen was designed with cooks in mind and opens onto a deck where we enjoyed a number of meals, often using the gas fired grill. We played a lot of golf on courses in the Sarasota/Bradenton area and were always able to make tee times when we wanted. This was our first experience in Florida and we were impressed; the owners were responsive, helpful, and attentive and we highly recommend this house. We are going to try other areas in the state, but we will definitely return--this is a great place to stay."

Whitney Beach Travel Tips

Whitney Beach Vacation Rentals

Whitney Beach vacation rentals overlook the gorgeous white sands and sprawling coastline of west Florida. Whitney beach condos are the perfect place for a perfect vacation for you and your family and will help you have a beach vacation that you will never forget.

The Salvador Dali Museum

If art is your passion, visit the Salvador Dali Museum. The museum features the surrealist works by Spanish artist Salvador Dali, ranging from his amazing sculptures and watercolors to his photos and oil paintings. The Salvador Dali Museum also contains a 5,000 volume art library about Dali and the ideas behind surrealism. Free tours are offered daily.

Fine Wineries

The Florida Orange Groves and Winery offers 33 flavors of their amazing tropical fruit and citrus wines, including pink grapefruit, strawberry, lime and mango flavors. All their wines are made from 100% fruit juice and are of the highest quality. They also offer non-alcoholic smoothies for the young ones. Another interesting winery is the Keel and Curley Winery. Instead of offering a wide variety of wines, Keel and Curley specialize in blueberry wines made with 100% blueberries. They offer dry, semi dry and sweet blueberry wines and some blended wines. Keel and Curley was founded in 2003 and has been a great success ever since.

Sprawling State Park

One of the best outdoor attractions around Longboat Key beach rentals is the Myakka River State Park, a cherished 57 mile state park made especially for visitors to enjoy the wonders of nature. Myakka River State Park offers bird watching, fishing, camping and hiking as well as safari tram tours. If you prefer some alone time, rent a canoe or kayak. If you would rather experience something without so much paddling, you can take a ride on two of the world's largest air-boats, the Myakka Maiden or the Gator Gal.
