About Jim Zilli
Jim Zilli grew up in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, area. He started coming to Longboat Key in the early 1980's. Jim chose this Tower 503 property as it was the perfect vacation property with an amazing gulf view. Jim had previously purchased the nearby two-bedroom villa and came to live in Longboat Key full-time in 2009. The Tower 503 has upscale touches equivalent to a Ritz or St. Regis suite. Jim is CEO in the family’s Wisconsin on off-site catering special events business, so he has ample experience in hospitality. He finds great enjoyment and satisfaction helping guests have amazing vacations in his properties – many of whom come back year after year. “I have many families who I have gotten to know over the years and spent time , dining , golfing , helped them find realtors, and more,” says Jim. Clients have complimented Jim’s style as attentive and not pushy. They appreciate he will check in with them during their stay. He wants renters to know he’s there for them.
Jim Zilli purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Jim Zilli chose Longboat Key
The most obvious reason Jim chose Longboat Key is the weather and beauty of this location, and the Villa is located just steps from a world-class beach. Guests never run out of things to do, whether it’s enjoying the nightlife in nearby Sarasota or simply collecting shells along the white sand beach. The weather provides just enough variety so you won’t be bored. Unlike other areas of Florida, Longboat Key is quiet, safe and has a small-town feel he enjoys. The area feels remote and natural yet it’s easy to access with the Sarasota airport just 7 miles east of Sarasota or from Tampa, which is 40 minutes away. One of Jim’s favorite things to do is golf, and (there are several world-class courses within a 20-minute drive). He also enjoys movies, and recommends the annual film festival in Sarasota. He keeps a running list of the many, many things there are to do in the area - so whether you like to swim, sunbathe, walk on the beach, golf, shop, or all of the above, Jim’s guests find plenty to keep themselves entertained. At the same time, the secluded location offers privacy and quiet so if you, like most of us, need to catch up on rest while you’re here, you can fall asleep to nothing more than the gentle sound of the surf.

Great vacation spot!
Condo was very clean and well equipped for our week at the beach. We were notified on our arrival in Sarasota, that our room was available earlier than the normal check in time. That was appreciated so we could unload and hit the beach earlier!
We enjoyed our stay very much.Cant wait to do it again.
Another fantastic longboat key vacation!
Great property & excellent location. The unit is very nicely decorated & well taken care of. Jim is very accessible if you have any questions or needs while you are there. Loved having a pool as well as direct beach access, also had outdoor bathroom so you didn't have to come all the way back into unit throughout the day. This is my 4th time to Longboat, first at this location & would definitely stay at Turtle Crawl again.
Melanie was easy to work with , inquired for future rental as to my home which is also on this site . I would recommend her to anyone .
We were very pleased with our stay! Jim was so great to work with and made sure we had everything we needed. The condo was furnished nicely and we felt very comfortable throughout our stay.
Victoria was so considerate , had problem with the TV for a minute and was so concerned with bothering me and I had Maint man on his way and she got it fixed a few minutes later and was more concerned about my feelings , how cool is that ?
Beautiful condo, incredible location!
We had an amazing time. The condo is beautifully decorated and the location on the beach hard to beat. The owner is on it if you need anything. It’s rented quickly because in a word—FABULOUS!!! Wish we were still there!!!
I am so lucky to have clients who notice the service and details Diane was so easy to work with and tried to rebook but date was already sold out , anybody she rents from will be pleased .
Wonderfully renovated and well appointed condo. Had everything we needed, including a thoughtful lighted makeup mirror in the bath cupboard! A balcony view to die for. Living area open, bright and airy. So quiet too. Location is perfect! We walked 3-5 miles each day. Restaurants and shopping close by. Beach is gorgeous...you can walk forever! Early morning the day we were leaving the dolphins gave us a show! Perfect!
