Enjoyed the site and all it had as a great stay. The trip was great with all kinds of things to do from private walks on the beach to great foods and interesting attractions.

Great Location

  • 2 of 5

The location was great. The AC was great. The bath towels were great.

There were two nice beach chairs.

It was my wife and I on this trip, and we could not utilize the bikes, one was a kids bike, and the other bike was an adult bike, but needed new tires and hand grips.

We found the mattress was firm, with little padding, which resulted in sore backs for a few days. It just seemed like it was not a quality mattress. The sheets and bed cover were very nice.

The couch in the living room was dirty, it had dirty /stained cushions. We covered the couch with a beach towel.

There was a trash container in the kitchen with a bag in it, but no extra bags once that was filled and thrown out. The bathroom trash container had no bag in it.

We could have used a swiffer to use on the hardwood and tile floors.

You could not walk barefoot on the porch/deck, or outside shower, or you may get splinters in your feet from the decking, this was not a big deal, but just want to let folks know.

Great bones, but needs some TLC. Have some extra supplies available, a swiffer, trash bags, laundry soap, dryer sheets, etc, to help guests.

Great private home with excellent beach access

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had an absolutely great stay on Longboat Key. I would recommend this house to anyone looking to have a nice stay in the area away from the crowds and tourists. The house is just a short drive from anything you may need and is perfect for a couple looking to visit the beach.

A true beach lover's bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week in beautiful Longboat Key and had a truly wonderful experience! The house was just as it was described, the beach was a short walk away - close enough to enjoy our morning coffee, and if you love to stroll along the shore, this is the place! It was simply beautiful and we had several sightings of manatee and dolphin while enjoying the sun. The area is easy to figure out. Quite possibly our best vacation - ever. We plan to return sometime in the future!

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved staying at this home. Quiet, peaceful and very comfortable.. Short walk to a beautiful quiet beach. The home had all we needed for out stay. We did buy a new beach umbrella ( the one there had no bottom pole). We also bought a cooler and left both for future quests enjoyment. Will definitely come back again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.
