Perfect beach home

  • 5 of 5

There was absolutely nothing wrong with or missing from this home on the beach. It is in a quiet area of Long Boat Key with stores conveniently located nearby. In the front area of the house facing the Gulf, I couldn't hear anything but the peaceful sound of waves. All the pictures show how wonderful this house is. Wish I could've stayed forever!

Beach House Property is beautiful right on the water.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the Beach House Property. Was fully equipped and in a great location to stores if you did need anything. The bedrooms down stairs were perfect for 2 couples . The upstairs bedroom is truly suited for children not another adult couple , being a set of bunk beds. Although the bottom bunk was queen size and we had plenty of room, However it had everything we needed and had a great time. You can't beat the location.

Snuggled next to the dunes with an expansive deck, this charming rental had us all in heaven for the week. The beach and clear gulf waters made us never want to leave.

Wonderful but flawed

  • 3 of 5

The Beachhouse has a wonderful frontage to the beach. At times this gives an unrestricted view of the beach and the ocean with immediate beach access and is quite superlative. However, renters should be aware that the road immediately in front of the house is at times very busy and traffic noise can be intrusive, day and night. There is public beach access right next to the house and while this is not busy people tend to enter here and set themselves up on the beach with umbrellas, awnings etc. right in front of the house which reduces privacy and mars the outlook. There were quite a number of housekeeping and maintenance issues when we arrived to which Mike was very attentive. The somewhat aged and tired nature of the house generally may be quaint and authentic to the 1950s but does not really justify the price tag in our opinion.

Owner's Response: Thank you for renting the Beach House on sought after Longboat Beach. This is an island with a road that takes you on and off the island. We are thankful for this beautiful home that is located on the beach with steps away from the Gulf of Mexico! Homes and condos are set up this way on this particular island. We are truly sorry you thought it was too noisy. The home sits back a bit from the road and when you are on the deck (best place to be) you hear the sounds of the water. Thank you! Mike and Sandy

Beautiful home on the beach.

  • 4 of 5

We were two couples sharing this beautiful home. The location of this house can't be beat. The proximity to the ocean and the lovely deck make for spectacular views. The kitchen is big and bright. The appliances appear to be quite new. Some of the frying pans need to be replaced, but other than that it was great. The master bedroom and bath are very spacious. The master shower has poor water pressure, but the other showers were adequate. The guest room on the main level is nice and has the best view of the water. The living room seats 5 comfortably. All in all, we were very pleased with this house and plan to return next year!

September 2016 Beach Trip

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed this wonderful house twice and love it! First we would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to Mike Albano. He was incredibly helpful! We needed assistance with medical supplies and he made our trip stress free and one of our best!! Can't beat the views, from am coffee to the incredible sunsets on the porches. Beautiful surf views from almost every room in the house. We highly recommend and hope to be back again soon.
