About Greg Hopkins

Retired and live a few miles from this vacation condo.

Greg Hopkins purchased this condo in 2005

Why Greg Hopkins chose Longboat Key

My wife has been coming to Longboat Key for over 40 years. It is a hidden gem. Very quiet and private. Best for those who want a restful and peaceful vacation. Walking distance to multiple restaurants, liquor store, dry cleaners, hair salon and more...If more action is desired, it is just a few minutes down the road, across the bridge in Anna Maria Island where there are lots of bars, restaurants and shopping.

What makes this condo unique

Being on the ground floor, the condo provides very easy access to the beach, pool and car.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time and the condo could not have been more perfect (unless it came with a butler). I have already told a few people about the place if they are looking for a vacation. I hope we can come back soon.

Longboat Key Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Sea Pines property the week of June 17th and had a wonderful stay. The property was better than advertised with a full complement of items to enjoy the pool and beach. The portable BBQ was useful and used plenty. The accommodations were first rate and very comfortable. The location was great and the rental process was easy and swift. We will certainly consider staying at the property in future vacation planning.

When Greg says EVERYTHING you need to enjoy your stay..he is respectfully understating! We've rented A LOT of condos..this however was the 1st one that felt like a home and not just a rental..little things matter to us as far as traveling with kids at a beach..proximity to beach and home comforts..these beds are wonderful..salt and pepper?!?! C'mon..I even brought my own because rentals NEVER have that..and the beach is RIGHT joke! Cute little towns down the road..but the condo is far enough away from city a quiet residential area..we saw dolphins everyday and realized we were swimming 2 ft away from a giant manatee..IT WAS GLORIOUS!!

Will definitely book again..

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We take great pride in providing an amazing experience at a very reasonable price point. We understand that when you are on holiday you want things to be as advertised and in working condition so you can relax and take advantage of the incredible beach and sunsets. We're not always perfect but thank you for acknowledging our efforts.

A bit of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is quaint English decor, very clean,and stocked with everything one would need to begin a peaceful vacation. A large screened in porch to view the sunsets. The location was just what we were looking for. A peaceful unintrusive setting but with easy access to the busier scenes. Ocean views, quiet and with a pool just steps away! The visit was made just perfect to have an owner readily available if needed. Just a wonderful holiday!

Nature Lover's Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a perfect relaxing week in this lovely condo. It is comfortably furnished, well-maintained, ultra clean, and has everything you need for enjoying your time at the beach. The condo has a wonderful large pool with plenty of chaise lounges, chairs, and sun umbrellas for you to have some poolside privacy even if several other guests are using it. This unit has a well-equipped kitchen - we made big breakfasts every morning and then ate out in the late afternoon at a number of great restaurants within short driving distance - Drydock Waterfront Grill (fantastic bay views and great stone crabs), Blue Marlin Grill on Bradenton Beach, and the Columbia on St. Armand's Circle. We spent long hours at the glass-topped table and comfortable chairs in the screened lanai looking out over the sea oats at the Gulf of Mexico and watching a wide variety of sea birds - osprey, pelicans, great blue herons, egrets, terns, gulls, plovers, and sandpipers. It really is a bird watcher's dream. We took long beach walks every day and collected quite a lot of shells. All in all, it is a wonderful place to unwind and leave your cares behind - we plan on coming back again next year.
