Tranquil and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Although the unit needs some upgrading, it was fully equipped and comfortable. Martha, our host was just excellent in all communications.

Great place to stay

My girlfriend and I were in town for a wedding and we were lucky enough to come across this location. Martha was wonderful to deal with and was very informative and helpful about everything in the area. Highly recommended and I would very much like to stay there again.

Terrific value, lovely and comfortable condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a long weekend at this unit and it was a great experience. The condo is nicely furnished and perfectly located for a Longboat Key vacation. We enjoyed the easy kayak access to Sarasota Bay and the dining options available at Harry's (an easy walking distance). The beach access is convenient and the owner provides beach chairs and an umbrella so no need to pack these essentials. We enjoyed quiet meals after sunset on the back deck by candlelight and stars--divine! We hope to return for another visit next year (or sooner!).

Best family value

  • 5 of 5

Very clean cottage style condo. Kitchen was recently remodeled. We slept 3 adults and an infant. Owner was very accommodating and professional. Provided information on sitters and crib, car seat, and stroller rental. Back door opens to the quiet canal.

The street is on a nature preserve park that has a jungle gym and multiple paths to walk or jog. Also on the street is the best restaurant on Longboat Key, Harry's Continental Kitchen. There is also a gourmet deli with prepared foods. At the end of the street is a corner store tat has EVERYTHING.

Across the street is the beautiful private beach. It's a 5 minute walk from door to sand.

Great FIshing!!!

  • 5 of 5

My two best friends and I recently stayed for three nights. We needed a place that was affordable but comfortable and had a dock to keep our boat. We were there to fish! Finding a place that had a dock right off the bay was crucial because we didn’t want to have deal with putting the boat in the water each morning or paying someone else to dock our boat. When I came across this condo I was very pleased with the pictures and info, but didn’t want to get my hopes up too much. When we arrived it was clear right away that we had found the perfect place for our fishing trip. It had everything, and much more, that we needed for a great weekend. This place is nice! The dock was perfect for our boat. The patio was great in the evenings for hanging out, drinking a cold one and discussing the plan for the next day. There is a little convenient store down on the corner that is great since we didn’t have time to get out to the grocery store during the day. To top it all off, we caught some very nice redfish and snook while there. The owner was very nice, helpful and easy to coordinate our arrival with. We will defiantly be back, hopefully very soon!
