About Greg Hopkins

Retired and live a few miles from this vacation condo.

Greg Hopkins purchased this condo in 2005

Why Greg Hopkins chose Florida South West

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.

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.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and were sad to leave! We stayed for a week with our two small children and couldn't have had a better time. The condo is very nicely updated and maintained, the beach was beautiful and private, and the Gulf view from both the condo unit and the pool was relaxing. There were only a few other families staying in the complex so we usually had the pool to ourselves! We appreciated that the kitchen was fully stocked with cookware as we made several meals during our stay. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was also very convenient and the wifi access worked perfectly. The owner, Greg, was very responsive to our questions. We will definitely consider staying here again for future vacations!

Outstanding Vacation Experience

  • 5 of 5

This condo was just what we were looking for. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful and secluded vacation, I would consider this property. Besides the gorgeous beach and large pool, we found ourselves spending most of our time around the table on the screened in back porch overlooking the sea oats and the Gulf of Mexico. This was the perfect place to eat our meals and enjoy coffee in the mornings listening to the waves and enjoying the awesome view. The owner/manager of the property is very prompt in communicating and answering any questions you may have. Customer service at its best in my opinion. I would definitely consider this property for future vacations. We highly recommend.

very nice accomodations

  • 5 of 5

The condo was immaculate and tastefully decorated. Great place to relax. Very private location on the north end of Longboat Key and within walking distance to the village restaurants and fishing piers at the end of Broadway. Beach chairs, umbrellas, floats, and charcoal grill available for use. In addition, the owner was very flexible with check out as we had a car problem that wasn't fixed until late in the day of our check out date. We highly recommend.

Just Another Beautiful Day In Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came down here with our three teenagers and could not have found a better place to stay. The accommodations are beautiful and create an atmosphere of peace, and I found myself being comfortable and welcome with my family on the beach. Despite being in the heat of late June, I was pleasantly surprised by how relaxing life by the poolside really was; I had expected the harsh and overbearing sun to be relentless, but the ocean provided a lovely breeze for my family and I to enjoy! Being in Longboat Key and staying in such a gorgeous location so close to the ocean created many opportunities for my family and I. We could gladly take shuttles to the main island and enjoy the the marine life by the Mote Marine aquarium, explore both ends of the beach, experience dynamic restaurants within walking distance of the condo, and then go back to a cozy space to be at ease and comfortable after a day of fun in the sun. Everyday was just another beautiful day in paradise!

Owner's Response: We are glad you had such a fantastic, relaxing and wonderful time. We work hard to keep our condo well stocked, clean and maintained. It sounds like this was just the R&R you needed to "recharge your batteries". Thanks for sharing your insights and comments.

Beautiful, relaxing vacation condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and kids found the most beautiful, cozy and convenient vacation spot. The ocean view and a few minutes walk, the pool a few yards away and yummy restaurants in walking distance. We went in May and the few locals we met were very friendly, but we appreciated the private quiet neighborhood. I grew up going to different parts of Florida and this place and location is by far one of my favorites.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and pointing out how easy it is to get to the beach, pool and restaurants. I know they just added more stores within walking distance including a new liquor store, dry cleaners, beauty salon and more.
