  • Enjoyable beach get away

    "Owners are excellent to deal with, and keep you informed. Unit is very comfortable, clean, and the location is excellent. Short walk to the beach; property has nice walking paths. Gated property, and nicely maintained. We are looking forward to our next visit. We spend two months at the property."

  • 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 Home, Great Beaches= Great Vacation

    "I have just returned home after spending a wonderful weekend with 5 old college girls celebrating our informal 30 year reunion. We had a glorious time due in great part to the spacious and relaxing accommodations and the wonderful nearby restaurants and the lovely beaches. Numerous beaches abound on Longboat and the couple that we frequented have white soft sand that feels great under your feet and the water was still warm enough to enjoy. The home has a wonderful open kitchen and family room which made it ideal to eat in and to relax, and a lanai with dining table as well as a full size hammock. We had a key lime dessert at a nearby restaurant that we walked to on the recommendation of the owner that was to die for and we returned the next 3 nights to sample another home made item. We all probably gained another 5 pounds! Oh well, I guess that's what vacations are for, aren't they?"

  • Perfect vacation

    "This is the 3rd time we have stayed in Longboat Key and this home was by far, the best. Our visit was for a month. Our children and young grandchildren visited throughout the month. The home is well equipped with everything we needed for meals, the beach, the pool or just to relax. The owners were absolutely fantastic. Anytime we contacted them, they were quick to respond. Upon arrival we were greeted with a fresh bouquet of flowers on the lanai. From that moment on, we knew we made the right choice. We hope in the future to choose this home again for another perfect vacation."
