  • Great family vacation!

    "It's been a good family vacation in the super property. A few little technical issues have been identified and fixed quickly by the owner. A beautiful location close to the beach. We recommand without concern."

  • Fantastic well-equipped condo with stunning gulf view!

    "There were only two of us staying here which meant we really felt the spaciousness. We loved the huge master bed. It was very comfortable and you never knew someone was in it with you. There is a second bedroom with a twin and full bed. The views from the master bedroom, dining area, kitchen and living room are phenomenal. The windows are very tight and you have silence unless you choose to open and allow the sound of the waves to come in. We enjoyed the hightop table on the balcony and the two bathrooms were very convenient. We really appreciated the closet with leftover beach toys and umbrellas and the towel drying rack on the patio. You get a designated parking space and the condo is only a couple of miles from Publix grocery store. Easy drives on up through Bradenton to Anna Maria Island or down through St. Armands Circle and Lido Key. One hour and 20 minutes from Punta Gorda airport. We really enjoyed our stay and have missed our Longboat Key sunsets these last few days. Thank you!"

  • A Perfect Family Getaway

    "We stayed at the house for a week during March 2014. We had my wife three children (adults) and my daughter in-law and two grandchildren. The house was perfect. Of course it always helps to have nice weather which we did. The house is well maintained on one of the finger streets on the north end of the island on the bay side. The kitchen is well laid out and reasonably equipped. We did a lot of cooking. There were even extras like spices and cooking oils available if needed. There is a master bedroom, and bath suite on the top floor. It is a lovely room with a comfortable bed and a nice view of the canal and the pool. The pool is heated and easy to control. The other bedrooms were also well laid out with clean modern baths. The neighbors are all friendly and have known the owners for years and seem very comfortable with guests staying in the house. The maintenance person is available and very helpful. The beach is about a ten minute walk. There are not many beach access points on Longboat Key but this is by one of them. You can park by the church and there always appeared to be spaces available but we ended up always walking. The beach is beautiful and fairly private. If you want the crowds go north ten minutes just over the bridge to Coquina Beach in Bradenton. It is a beautiful beach and you can get ice-cream and even a beer. Further north is more of what you would expect of a beach town, little shops, restaurants, pizza. Going south you are headed towards Sarasota and St. Armand’s Circle. It has more upscale shops and restaurants. Also think about DryDock on Longboat Key. Make reservations at least a week in advance. Go out for a kayak trip. You will see dolphins, egrets and Great Blue Herons. We had our own personal Great Blue Heron that hung out at the pool and an egret that hung around also. You can rent a boat fairly close by but in the end we did not have enough time. It is about an hour to Busch Gardens in Tampa. Try not to leave the island after 3:00 PM. The traffic is very heavy. So stay near the house if you can and enjoy. The owner is terrific to deal with and very prompt in answering all our questions. In sum it is a terrific place to stay."
