About Joe Stephen

My wife and I have been enjoying the beautiful beaches of Florida for over twenty years

Joe Stephen purchased this condo in 2014

Why Joe Stephen chose Longboat Key

We had always gone to Naples, FL, but Longboat Key was recommended to us by friends. We were instantly smitten by this this award-winning beachfront paradise and its outstanding staff!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at Casa del Mar (14F) just after Christmas. We had a wonderful experience! The kids were constantly in the gigantic pool or having fun in the ocean. On that note, there is a sandbank close to shore which makes the swimming experience fairly safe. My husband played tennis with our son every day and I enjoyed long walks on the beach with my daughter. 14F has been recently renovated hence the place is impeccable. The kitchen is fully equipped and it is very quiet at night. Would recommend anytime!

Casa del Mar is a hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

Casa del Mar is a hidden gem! My kids kept running back and forth between the ocean and the heated pool--everything is right there on the beach. They were completely entertained while we sunned under the umbrella (bonus=you can rent them by the day and staff will put them up/take them down for you.) At night, people gather for cocktails to watch the spectacular sunsets or use the communal BBQs. Such a family friendly complex with super helpful staff. This Unit (14F) has been renovated with modern kitchen/baths and is fully stocked with everything you could need. Free Wifi and even puzzles/games for the kids. Forgot something? The CVS and Publix are a 5-minute drive away. Plus it was a lot more affordable than other places we looked at on Longboat Key. Made it hard to leave and definitely coming back!

Lovely beachfront oasis

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Casa del Mar. The staff cannot do enough for you and this gorgeous unit had just been renovated in a fresh, nautical theme. We spent many hours strolling along the beach and lounging by the pool. The location cannot be beat and the landscaping is really quite something. Great mix of young families, retired couples--really fun vibe!

With incomparable proximity to turquoise shores and a sparkling 25x60 heated (86F) pool, you’ll have everything you need for a relaxing, stress-free vacation. Quiet evenings, splendid sunsets and long stretches of clean beach make this the perfect getaway. Choose from an appealing array of high quality restaurants or dine at home—enjoying the simplicity and convenience of a newly updated kitchen.

Resort amenities include comfortable beach loungers, your own private umbrella and plenty of area for sunbathing. Multiple barbeques, tiki huts for outdoor dining and two tennis courts (no need to bring racquets or balls!) create a casual and friendly atmosphere. A wide variety of activities are available onsite and nearby, including island grocery shopping, restaurants, and golf. A ten-mile bike path that winds along Gulf of Mexico Drive provides ample room for walkers, bikers, and rollerbladers to enjoy.

If you want to venture out, Casa del Mar sits less than 15 minutes away from the world class St. Armand’s Circle shopping district that offers al-fresco dining, open jazz concerts and nightly entertainment. In lovely Sarasota—a mere 15 minute drive—you’ll find the Ringling Museum, Van Wezel Performing Arts Center, Asolo Theater, Sarasota Ballet and Opera, live theater, live music and more. The south end of Longboat Key is home to the Mote Marine Aquarium, with captivating marine exhibits.
