Longboat Key Studio Rental Photos and Description

1st floor studio, full kitchen, breakfast bar; king bed + twin sleeper

LOVE THE BEACH? This is the spot for you!

2 night minimum. Be sure to read the VRBO reviews, and also check out the guest book comments, which are at the end of the 'Manager information' section. (I'm actually the owner, not the manager.) Fantastic unobstructed view of the beach and Gulf of Mexico from the unit and patio. Avoid the stairs and step right out onto the lovely patio to enjoy morning coffee or tea. Swim in the ocean or beachside pool, gather shells, watch for dolphins, play beach volleyball, make dinner on the grill, enjoy the beautiful sunsets! Newly remodeled kitchen includes breakfast bar and sleek barstools that swivel and adjust in height. Range, fridge, new microwave, new dishwasher. 40' flat screen TV & DVD player. Very comfortable (read the reviews!) king size bed + new twin sleeper sofabed in chocolate brown microfiber. New Italian porcelain tile flooring throughout that looks like a cottage wood floor. Mirrored wall is restyled to look like windows, visually expanding the space and bringing the outside in. New toilet - 2 inches (?) higher, like in most hotels. Conveniently located near (but not too near!) the inviting beachside pool. Shared laundry. To make a reservation call SeaHorse directly 866-383-2417 or (for 3 nights or more) make reservation on-line. Select studio units, then select make reservations on line, choose #223, and book your dates. (If you have questions, feel free to contact me, Linda Adrian, the owner.)

Longer vacation? Check out another of our Longboat Key rental units, a 2 BR 2 bath condo at Banyan Bay Club, #103, ground floor unit right on the beach. 1 month minimum rental. Photos available upon request.

About Linda Adrian

My husband and I are from the Chicago area, now retired and living full-time on Longboat Key, 10 minutes from this SeaHorse unit. We feel that we have discovered Paradise! We both play tennis several times a week. We also enjoy walking everywhere around this beautiful island and Sarasota. Other interests for me: family & friends of course, gardening, and the continuing challenge of bridge.

Linda Adrian purchased this studio in 2011

Why Linda Adrian chose Florida South West

I bought this unit in December 2011 when I fell in love with the up-close-and-personal location on the beach. Wait until you see it. WOW !!!

What makes this studio unique

I have made lots of changes since buying the unit to make it a relaxing and cheerful place for family, friends, and resort guests. Most recent rehab (kitchen) May 2015. Since I live on Longboat Key, I stop by SeaHorse a lot to do gardening around the complex. It's fun to see many familiar faces: owners and return guests.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Nov 2013 guest book entry: We had a wonderful time enjoying the beautiful surroundings here at Longboat Key. The beach, the trails, the sun and the people were enjoyable. The condo was all we needed and everything we hoped for. Thank you from A&T.

PS - We enjoyed Mar Vista for lunch and many home cooked meals right here with the perfect view on our patio!

A hidden Gem....very nice, updated unit at a GREAT resort. Love this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

I don't normally write reviews but we loved this place so much, I'm feeling the need!

My wife an I are in our late 40's and when we travel from PA to a beach our goal is for great weather, an ocean front unit & plenty of relaxation. This resort is perfect! If you are looking for a studio unit, this is the one for you! after our 2nd trip to the resort, this unit will be the one we choose from this point on. It was really clean & updated. A complete kitchen w/full size fridge, stove, microwave & dishwasher, plenty of plates, classes & silverware, the fan over the bed was a really nice luxury. To be honest, when we weren't basking in the sun on the beach steps away, we were on the ground level patio enjoying the view of the water & just listened to the waves, it never gets old!! The TV was a nice size but frankly, we never even turned it on.

I was lucky enough to meet & talk with the owner of the unit during our stay, she was a very nice lady who really seemed to care about how our stay was going, we loved that! :) I seriously have zero complaints about the unit....well maybe a larger beach umbrella would be nicer to hide under to escape the rays haha...The unit & resort in general for what you get in this area was A1 & extremely affordable!! could be the largest beach in longboat.

A few suggestions for restaurants are the drydock seafood grill (10 min. drive) was our favorite, lazy lobster a few mins north was very good as well. we also drove an hour and 15 mins. to punta Gorda fla. & enjoyed an all you can eat seafood buffet at Hurrican Charlies on the bay, the buffet is Friday nights only.....If you love crab legs until you can't eat another bite, we strongly suggest making a trip here. not a bad price at $28 pp. We used to visit myrtle & ocean city.....not anymore, Longboat key Florida is the place for us. Try it once & I can assure you, you will feel the same!! The Gulf water is amazingly clear with very little seaweed & no jellyfish sightings!! Can't wait to go back...miss it already

Owner's Response: I was happy to meet this nice couple when I was at SeaHorse doing some gardening on the grounds (I'm on the Landscaping Committee). If any guests would like a copy of "Linda's Picks" (my recommendations for restaurants, etc) please let me know after you have made your reservations.

Stayed for our honeymoon. Quite and such an awesome view! You can lay on the bed and see/hear the ocean. The onsite staff is AMAZING and extremely helpful. We could not have drawn up a better honeymoon and will definitely be back.

'A Little Slice of Paradise!'

  • 5 of 5

Ive been going to LBK since i was young, and wanted to relive some memories. This studio was just perfect! After some research, this was literally the closest location to the beach i could find! The newly decorated unit was tropical & charming, free wifi for those who need to check up on work, or the kids, but the scenery & location was what made this place so amazing! The ocean view was breathtaking! Step out onto the patio with chairs & table where we spent plenty of time admiring scenery &, weather, beautiful tropical plants and flowers... water sports and biking was available, shops & restaurants very close by. I didnt want to leave, and am positive I'll be returning! Im an artist, and was totally inspired by the sunsets..

Also, the price was very reasonable, and everything was included. NO extra hidden fees.

The office staff was kind and helpful, & supplied beach towels, also a public computer & printer for reserving and printing airplane boarding passes. very convenient!

Thanks again for allowing me to share your little slice of paradise! <3

Owner's Response: I was so pleased to get your email right after you arrived, telling me how much you liked the unit and SeaHorse. I'm sorry I couldn't extend your stay as requested. It's great that you were able to reserve some time here for your parents next month. Let me know if there is anything I can do to be helpful. Come back soon! Linda
