Wonderful stay at the Beachcomber

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two kids had a very pleasurable stay in this 1 bdrm unit at the Beachcomber. It was exactly as advertised. The after hours check-in, which I was worried was no problem. Very easy access to the beach and pool. The other guest were very friendly and a great source of local information. Many we spoke with had been coming there every year for 30 years and still love the condo and the location. Having the new Publix and CVS just across the street was an added bonus. We probably grilled on the sheltered back patio 3 of our 8 nights. The gas grill was simple to use and it was also a great place to watch the sunset a unique event in Longboat Key. You are so close to Sarasota you can be Downtown at the movie theater in 15 min. You must try the Columbia restaurant in St. Armound what a treat.

The highlight of our trip however was a sea turtle hatch-out right on our beach. The little guys were straying all over with no moon to guide them and we made sure about 12 more turtles made it safely to the sea. A once in a lifetime experience. Make sure when you go crabbing you use a red filter on your flashlight so as not to spook the huge female turtles that come ashore at night to lay eggs!

P.S. Our dealings from the booking process to the on-site management staff were flawless.

Excellent - Exactly as described.

  • 5 of 5

I have vacationed on Longboat Key many times. This is excellent value for money. It is right on the beach and opposite the Avenue of Flowers where there is a Publix, CVS Pharmacy and a restaurant amongst the shops on the site. The management staff on site were extremely helpfulwith any minor problems and advice when required. I would recommend these condos to anyone who doesn't want to pay over the odds but get good value.

The Beachcomber apartment block although old is well maintained and spotlessly clean. It is right on the beach and is just across the road from a Publc library, Bank of America and a Publix supermarket which makes shopping very handy and relaxing. All of these buildings are screened from view by trees and large shrubs.

Our apartment was not on the beachside but the view was still pleasant

The apartment was well decorated and had modern lounge furniture and flat screen TVs. The kitchen and bathroom fittings were not so new, however everything worked and was clean. It has one bedroom again with modern decor. Space standards were more than adequate for the 2 of us staying for 2 weeks.

We will return again!
