Place needs work!! Good location!

  • 3 of 5

The location is great, but the house needs updating and repairs. The front door sticks and is extremely difficult to open. The shower door does not close properly. All the windows were unlocked when we arrived and several windows were broken and could not be locked. In my opinion not safe . Finally found the washer and dryer in the locked shed. Would have been nice if the owners left a note about where things were located. Make sure you bring your own toilet paper and paper towels as barely any existed in the house . It would have been nice to have two complete set of keys. Found a second dead bolt key the last night. Once again no instructions from the owner. Good luck future renters. I feel you can get a better deal somewhere else. We had friends in the house next door, that house was more updated for a similar cost.

Owner's Response: The guest actually uncovered an issue which if left unreported could have been major for us. A few days before he left he told the maintenance man that he heard water running under the house which none of us knew about. Turns out we had a major water leak which slightly undermined a support block causing a slight shift of the cottage floor effecting the alignment of the front door, shower door and windows. It has since been repaired. As far as the other issues they will be corrected as well. There was a book with all pertinent information but it disappeared so I will redo and normally we leave one roll of toilet paper and paper towels to get you started. Ill check with the cleaning service to be sure that is what is being supplied.

I thought the property was absolutely beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

I was very pleased and happy with my recent stay at 540 Companion Way. Everything was perfect and I am looking forward to coming back again. Also, members of my family that had the opportunity to view the cottage and property were extremely impressed with it. Brian Meskil was very helpful.

Thank you,

This was our second time at the cottage and we absolutely love it!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Longboat Key, staying at the cottage, was amazing once again. There is everything you need for days at the beach and you are close enough to come home for lunch, or just lug everything there - like we do! The property manager is very helpful and responds quickly to any questions. The location is perfect - close to Sarasota and Anna Maria Island, as well as Bridge Street for great food, bars, ice cream and sunset watching.

We will most definitely be back!

We enjoyed our 2 week stay.

  • 4 of 5

We found the rental to have ample space for my husband and I and our 2 small dogs.

The king-size bed was very comfortable and the bed linens and towels were very nice.

The walk to the beach was just a few minutes and that was nice. Our neighbors told us that they had a notebook re. area amenities and we thought that would have been helpful for this rental. We did note a lot of dust behind the furniture and under the bed. We did use the vacuum to clean the floors a couple of times. Also, the men’s bike really needs replacing as it is old and rusty. The hand grips were very old and sticky. We went for a ride on the bikes and a few miles out my husband’s back tire went flat. He started walking the bike back to the rental while I rode back to get the car to retrieve him and the bike. All in all it was a good stay. Some needed repairs and updates would have made it great.
