Recent Longboat Key property reviews

  • Beautiful condo inside, gorgeous views outside

    "The condo itself is absolute beautiful. It was very well appointed, recently renovated and had everything we needed and more! The beds were comfortable, the sheets and towels were very high quality, the flat screen TV's were great. The high speed internet and the cable both worked just as well as at home. The view from the balcony was gorgeous and we could see the ocean from every room in the condo! We have nothing but great things to say about this unit. The beach was beautiful, even though we were there during Tropical Storm Lee and Tropical Storm Neal. The beach is a treasure trove for people who like to collect shells. The pool is very small but was clean and comfortable and offered a great view of the beach. The common areas of the lobby/den, laundry room, rest rooms, elevator, and parking lot were always clean and maintained very well. The only suggestion we would have for the property is to improve the lighting at the entrance; it is difficult to see the entrance in the dark. We did not have much interaction with the on-site management, but when we did speak to Cindy in the office, she was wonderful. Donna and Steve were out of town the week we were visiting, but other guests that we met who had been there before were most complimentary of Donna and Steve. The property is located across the street from Publix and CVS, which is very convenient. We had never been to Longboat Key before. We were disappointed that so many restaurants were closed while we were there; apparently September is the time when the local merchants take their vacation. We did enjoy The Lazy Lobster and Sand Bar in Anna Maria Island. We also drove 45 minutes to the outlets when we were hit with a rainy day. You need to have a car in Longboat Key. You never know what you are going to get when booking a condo on line. This unit was better than we expected and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway"

  • Once again, a perfect getaway

    "This is our third time renting Tom and Sue's slice of paradise. As usual, everything was perfect. House is immaculate ( thanks to Annie) and we always feel like we are staying with friends. I hate to leave at the end of our stay....until next time!"

  • Great location, great house with boat dock and walking distance to beach!

    "Love, love, loved this house! CLEAN, neat and comfortable! This home has been updated throughout and has a warm and friendly beachy theme to give you the vacation vibe you are looking for. The home is located in a quiet but friendly neighborhood and has three nicely sized bedrooms with large closets. Extremely large SMART TV in the family room and kitchen sitting area. Has everything you need and then some! Relaxing beautiful pool on the lanai that has a great amount of covered space if you don't want to be in the direct sun. Longboat Key is a beautiful quiet island but within minutes of restaurants and shopping at the world renowned St. Armand's Circle as well as downtown Sarasota Main Street area. Also a short drive to Mote Marine Aquarium & Laboratory ( and the New Pass Grille where you can buy bait to fish or grab a bite to eat along the water. Publix food store and CVS are also within a mile, which makes things so convenient. We brought our 31 ft. SeaRay Sundancer and it fit perfectly at the dock and the deep water canal is a great location for quick access to beautiful Sarasota bay to fish, find a sandbar to anchor at or pull up and eat at a waterfront restaurant. We also caught several fish off the boat dock and our boys loved to do that every morning and evening. The beautiful, quiet Longboat Key beach is a short walk across the street. The house has all you need for the beach including beach chairs, noodles, towels and more! The close proximity to the beach is awesome and allows you daily opportunities to wake up and take a stroll with your morning coffee, go shell hunting, take a daily swim, or just go sit and watch a beautiful Gulf of Mexico sunset nightly. Longboat Key is paradise and this house is in the perfect location to enjoy everything that this area has to offer! I highly recommend this home and the owner is easy to contact for any of your needs! Family friendly, romantic getaway or great for a friends getaway as well."

  • Very pleased with our stay

    "My wife and I stayed in the cottage for our anniversary earlier this year and we both left thoroughly enjoyed. The property itself is beautiful and the location is just incredible. I was not 100% sure that the property would really look like it does in the pictures (which is true of any of the properties on any website) but I was pleased to discover the listing photo's accurately reflect the cottage's true appearance. Not only was the property beautiful, but it was also very clean and well-maintained. The owner was very helpful in returning any questions I had prior to our arrival, and make my wife and I's experience was enjoyable. There is nothing like having to add more stress, such as having to wait to hear back about questions or concerns when inquiring about such places. I would highly recommend this property to any friend or family, or member of the public for that matter."
