  • 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."

  • Great Clean Condo with Outstanding Gulf View

    "We just spent six weeks at the Mark II condos on Longboat Key and it was a terrific experience. The condo was very clean, roomy, with comfortable beds, and a great view of the Gulf of Mexico. Bruce, the property manager, was on the spot for anything we needed and he was very friendly and easy to work with. Several very nice restaurants are within a couple of miles, one is almost across the street. Very nice condo and area."

  • Love Love Love this BEACH HOME

    "You will find this condo both comfortable and convenient. Located on the north end of Longboat Key you will have access just 150 steps to a private beach. During our stay we traveled to Mote Marine for a Kayaking with Ecotours and to St. Armand's Circle for shopping and dining. This LONGBEACH condo is also close to Anna Marie Island where you can find additional places to dine and shop. The condo is clean and well kept and the owners were helpful with the renting process. I would definitely recommend this condo to my relatives and friends. We, ourselves, hope to return for another vacation in this paradise!"

  • Charming cottage. Everything and more it was listed as being.

    "The Cottage was charming, set in a lovely landscaped yard tucked into a quiet neighborhood, handsomely appointed and fully equipped. The owners, Rusty and Christine, were very accommodating and helpful in directing me around the area. The beach is nice and quiet, and I enjoyed the short walk to the two restaurants at the dock. Other restaurants, Harry's, and especially Euphemia Haye, were fine dining. The close by Arts Center is a nice visit. I only wish I could have stayed longer. I have already recommended this property to friends and my family, and I am looking forward to staying at the Cottage again in the spring."
