About Bridget Myers

I am a wife of 15 years and mother to two sons in their teens. My husband is originally from 1000 Oaks California, but moved to Muncie Indiana to be near family. I am originally from northwest Indiana and moved down to Muncie to attend Ball State. We are a very active family with various sports on our agenda and recently the boys discovered snow skiing, so that is our new passion.

Bridget Myers purchased this condo in 2006

Why Bridget Myers chose Longboat Key

When we toured different places on Longboat Key and the surrounding area as an investment opportunity and somewhere we would want to vacation, there was no comparison once we found Unit 240. We looked at high rises, but the ideal place I had in mind was also a vacation for me (mom). I didn't want to pack 3 bags and take an elevator to make it to the sand. Since the boys were 6 and 4 it has been exactly what I was looking for. I can sit out on the lanai and watch them on the beach. If you forget a shovel or sunscreen it's just 20 steps back to our place to retrieve it. The chaise lounges waiting on the beach and the close proximity to pool is what I wanted.

What makes this condo unique

Unit 240 really is our second home. To be able to open the back sliding door and hear the waves while you sleep will never get old. Having the beach so close and private are what I think people are looking for in a vacation. Our condo would be ideal for a honeymooning couple to a family of four. I hope my future grandkids will be able to have the same special memories my boys have made here.

Immaculate condo directly on the beach with great amenities.

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to enjoy the beach, this is definitely the way to go. Small condo complex with its own strip of private beach. The condo itself is well appointed with all the basics you would need and is maintained like a hotel room with daily maid service. When we arrived on property the check in process was very easy. Upon entering the unit we were pleasantly surprised by the layout and furnishings. And once we made it to the back... could not be happier with the location right on the sand. The property has lounge chairs already on the beach and abundant beach umbrellas that you can use free of charge. For those looking for a pool the pool is also just steps away and is fairly large and very clean. Overall we had a great experience and will definitely go back.

Beach is right out your front door!

  • 4 of 5

Unit was clean and well appointed. Ours was a one bedroom, oceanfront unit with a lovely lanai, but really only big enough for 3 people. My only observation is that the bathroom was much smaller than pictured but certainly still ok and serviceable. My two improvements would be a ceiling fan in the bedroom and no smoking on The complex. There is no smoking in the rooms but it is allowed on the property. The whole complex was beautifully landscaped and the staff was very friendly. But truly the jewel was the closeness of the ocean to our unit.

Location is best feature

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in this unit for one week

First the good:

We arrived at the Silver Sands around 3:00 pm and were allowed to check in to our unit. The staff at the Silver Sands were friendly and helpful. The unit was very clean and the kitchen stocked with needed essentials. Of course the best feature of this unit is the view and location which is awesome! It was a great feeling to open our blinds and have a full view of the Gulf and step right onto the beach from our back door!

Now, areas for improvement:

Location and view notwithstanding, we thought the unit would be more upscale based on the $200+/per night rate. If a Hampton Inn or Marriott Courtyard would be a 3 star property, we would rate this unit and property at a 2.5. The .5 is due to the location and view.

NO WIFI! The property is advertised as having free wifi to include on the beach. The wifi did not work on the beach. In addition, from about Tuesday until we checked out, the wifi did not work at all. RVA had someone out to look at it, but it was not fixed before we left. I saw on the notice in the laundry area that the owners are considering updating the wifi - this should definitely be done or cease advertising that the property offers free wifi since there are issues with the wifi.

The furnishings in the bedroom need an update. There is no headboard - I am not sure I have ever stayed in a hotel room or rental with no headboard for the bed. The pillows were of a very low quality. One pillow was very lumpy and the bedspread very worn. The flat sheet on our bed had visible holes. I recommend updating to white linen duvets and comforters. In addition,the bedroom is very dark with minimal natural light. It is probably better to have lamps with light color shades vice the brown. In addition, due to the location of the electrical outlets, the only available outlets to plug in cellphones or other devices is the outlet by the window. This means we had to put phones on the windowsill or floor. It would be nice to have a small table in this area for phones or devices. There also was no luggage rack. This is a basic item in a hotel rooms and the lack of one meant we had to use the kitchen chairs to hold our luggage. While we spent most of our time at the beach, when on vacation, an inviting and comfortable bedroom is important and this unit did not provide that.

Details matter when staying away from home especially while on vacation.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you had an unpleasant stay in my unit. The bedspread and sheets are community property which I have no control over, but I did talk to housekeeping about that. We usually plug our phones in the outlet behind the night stands and use that location, but maybe a small table by the other outlet is worth looking into. In the past there has been a luggage rack in the room, but since it is community property within the resort it might have been moved. I checked with housekeeping about that as well. Sincerely, Bridget
