"My wife and I were very lucky to be able to experience this wonderful 2 bedroom 2 bath villa in February 2016. We had hoped to return for 3 months in 2017, but we were forced to cancel due to some major medical issues.
The unit was very well equipped with a very comfortable king sized bed in the master bedroom. We had a few overnight guests during our stay who all said the Murphy bed in the second bedroom was also very comfortable. Wireless internet and cable TV all worked perfectly. We even brought our Apple TV with us which allowed for all the features provided by Apple TV. Kitchen was well equipped with everything you could ever need. Housekeeping did a good job prior to our arrival. A Swiffer and cleaning supplies helped us keep the unit clean during our stay. A full sized washer and dryer were very welcome. Parking is right in front of the walkway into the unit. A 20 second walk to the heated pool and a 2 to 3 minute walk to the Whitney Beaches private beach (with a variety of chair types) that were easy to move to where you wanted to enjoy the piece and quiet of the very clean beach. Many evenings we would take a cocktail across the street to enjoy the breathtaking sunset. Maintenance of the complex was wonderful. We met and interacted with many of our neighbors. Even met a couple from the town next to us in the Boston area who we still socialize with. A very short walk to the Whitney Beach shopping center (gift shop, liquor store, 2 restaurants, a fitness center, hairdresser and a lounge/bar was welcome).
We really loved Longboat Key. After experiencing Naples, we can say that Longboat Key is so much nicer. While traffic was bad getting off the island in the late afternoon, if you planned in advance it was no problem.
In short, you couldn't ask for a nicer place to enjoy Longboat Key. The owners were very easy to communicate with.
