We have a pack and play for the kids. We do not provide an air mattress for the unit, but you are welcome to bring one. We also do not have a sleeper sofa. This unit is both pet and kid friendly. We request no more than 4 people staying in the unit. Beach chairs and linens are provided. Enjoy watching a DVD or cable TV on the 42 inch LCD TV.

About Dana Gerling

Family owned property. We live in Bradenton, about thirty minutes from the condo. We think of it as our little beach gem and love to enjoy it when it is not rented.

Dana Gerling purchased this condo in 2009

Why Dana Gerling chose Longboat Key

The unit is very quiet and has a very secluded beach, which we loved! It is a hop, skip and jump to both the beach and some stores and restaurants, therefore the location can not be beat!

What makes this condo unique

You will always get a chance to see lots of wildlife in the water on the beach. We usually see dolphins and many seabirds. We also have sea turtles who nest on the beach and you may be able to see one of their nests during your visit if during season.


Close to Mote Marine and several playgrounds and parks. Close to fishing piers and nature trails. Minutes from St. Armand's circle, the most popular shopping destination in Sarasota.

Great Location, Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

Condo is at a great location of Longboat Key, with the beach right across the street. Condo was perfect for us, very clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed for our vacation. Very comfortable king size bed. Great restaurants, shopping or just walking at St Armand's Circle. We had a great time. We will be staying here again.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The location is definitely the best part. The beach access is directly across the street. While it is a public access lot for the beach, only 4-5 cars fit there. We even had the whole beach to ourselves a couple of times. The amenities in the condo were nice. Dishwasher is small, but was very nice to have. A/C works great. The bed is king-size and very comfortable. The blackout curtains are necessary in the bedroom, but would be nice if they opened, too. If everything were top-of-the-line and brand new, we would be paying 3x the price. It was a great deal and everything was wonderful.

Condo not ready

  • 1 of 5

This condo was in need of immediate repair .

I asked the owners to address a number of issues. They did and I was compensated for the number of days needed to take care these concerns.

However, when renting, one should feel confident that the condo is functioning properly before occupancy

Owner's Response: I am so sorry to hear this review. You contacted us for a few minor repairs which we had repaired immediately. You indicated one leg on the kitchen table was wobbly, a screen door latch needed repaired, one stove burner was rusty, small trickle in sink and issue with the toilet. Our handyman arrived immediately and fixed all issues. In order to allow your full enjoyment, we ordered black out shades on our already shaded windows because the light outside bothered you. Because we take the enjoyment of our unit very serious, we offered a small refund for your inconvenience and to make your stay right. Thank You, Dana Gerling

Everytime we go back, condo gets better and better!!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Dana for another fabulous getaway vacation in paradise. Condo was very clean and stocked with everything including toys, beach toys and pack-n-plays. We are never disappointed!! The king size bed is one of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in. I am shopping for a new bed now, lol. Looking forward to our next time there.
