Why Neville and Peggy OReilly chose Longboat Key
We fell in love with Cedars and Longboat Key while vacationing here over the past few years. Our home at Cedars offer everything we enjoy doing including tennis, beautiful beaches, a wide range of dining options, easily accessible cultural activities like theatre, shows, dance and the circus arts conservatory. We also love that we meet interesting people who vacation here from all over the world

Everything that one would ever need
It was a pleasure from start to finish to stay in this property. It was literally just like the photos , only better. The owners made it really easy to stay with little notes stuck in strategic places to help with the appliances etc. Everything was fresh and clean and immaculately maintained. It was also in a great location near beaches and restaurants, within walking distance, or up at Bradenton or down to St Armands Circle. You won't make a better choice of accommodation.
Clean, quiet, comfortable, spacious condo!
This condo met all of our needs! It is spacious, clean, and modern. The complex is quiet and we never had trouble finding a chair at the pool! We used the complimentary bikes a few times! The beach is directly across the street. There are beach chairs, umbrellas, and swim toys in the garage too! Publix Grocery Store is a few miles down the road, and there are several good restaurants on the island as well. St Armands is only a 10 minute drive! If we ever return to Longboat Key, we will definitely stay here again!!
Yes I found my hosts Neville and Peggy ....lovely and very helpful ...there home was very comfortable....all of it was to a high standard...short of nothing
Really enjoyed my stay...very central too
Extremely nice condo in Longboat Key, wonderful owners to rent from!
We had a wonderful week at the condo and Longboat Key. The condo had everything you would want/need and was very clean. The location is great and close to many different beaches on Longboat, or a short drive to Lido or Siesta Key. The red tide wasn't hardly noticeable when we arrived, and the water really cleared up each day. Being in Florida it rained hard every night, but we received plenty of sun and beach time. The condo owners are extremely friendly were easy to work with. You can tell they really care about the condo and the people renting it. It was a great week and we look forward to staying again in the condo on future visits to Longboat Key.
Great vacation home!
Property was great! They had everything we needed and were very easy to get ahold of if we had questions or concerns. The beach was just a short drive or walk down the road. Very quiet beach And not overcrowded at all. The pool was great and also not very crowded. We will definitely be back!
Wonderful Time/Wonderful Condo
Neville and Peggy OReilly’s vacation home is great. We have had extended stays at places in Cedar's for years and we like this condo the best. Close to the pool. Close to the beach. Close to Harry's and the Haye Loft. We stayed in this condo a few years ago from the previous owner and the upgrades from Peggy and Neville have added so much. They are so thoughtful and easy to deal with. When there was a wide area electrical outage Peggy kept me informed of the progress and when there was a problem with the sprinkler fire suppression system in the condo next door Peggy kept me informed about our minimal inconvenience. What a nice couple they are. My wife and I would rent again from them in a heartbeat.
