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.

Best time for us and our pug!

  • 5 of 5

Quite beach only 100 ft away. Walk there in your bare feet! Everything in the house worked great. AC blows ice cold! Tv and DVR were great! Upscale area with minimal other vacationers. If you are looking for a quiet beautiful beach, great spacious condo with everything you need . This is the place for you. The Beach was perfect, white sand, shallow for 100ft, no waves and warm warm warm. Excellent grocery store 50ft away! Do yourself a favour and rent from Dana. She is easy to deal with and helped us with anything we need. Thanks Dana for another great vacation.

Great Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had another great stay in LBK thanks to Dana! We loved the location of Neptune, so close to the beach, Publix, CVS, and St. Armands. The condo was clean and well supplied with anything you need. Dana was super easy to rent from and she was very responsive. If you’re looking for a great place to stay for your LBK vacation I highly recommend renting from Dana and staying at Neptune. We can’t wait to go back again!

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.
