About the property

Right On The Beach 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Ground floor Condo with two steps that lead out the back lanai to the white sands of Longboat Key. You can't get any closer to the beach than in this unit. The private beaches out the back door offer miles of shell collecting, sandcastle making, snorkleing, and dolphin sightings. Silver Sands Resorts offers on-site management to accommodate your every need.

Unit 240 is newly furnished and tiled throughout. One private master bedroom with king size bed and flat screen tv. Living room with queen sleeper sofa and flat screen tv lead into the full size kitchen fully equipped for meals at the dining room table or out on the back screened lanai that face the ocean. From the back lanai you can enjoy the unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico and hear the waves roll in. While living here you can leave the sliding door open and hear the waves while you cook, read or sleep.

Enjoy the heated outdoor pool that is 10 steps out the front door with complimentary chaise lounges and umbrellas. Tan, swim or read and watch the kids by the pool while you grill out on the barbecue.

The resort also has shuffleboard and mini putt-putt located on the property that will keep everyone busy and happy.

Daily maid service and free wi-fi in the unit and on the grounds.

About Bridget Myers

I am a wife of 15 years and mother to two sons in their early 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 Florida South West

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. Beach chaise lounges on the beach to use and close proximity to beach and 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.

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

We had a great time! The beach was literally out the back door. Very relaxing with great places to eat and visit very close. I would recommend to anyone.

My husband and I can not wait to go back!! We just rebooked and are very excited to put our toes in the sand. This place was very clean, quite and the bed was comfortable! The best part about this condo is you can walk right on beach. We are counting down the days until we return!
