Lovely condo in a quiet well maintained condo association
"My wife and I spent March, 2016 in this unit. The condo is very clean and exactly as represented in the photos. The kitchen is well stocked with nice dishes and high quality cookware. King bed is very comfortable. We didn't use the murphy bed but if you need to it can be partitioned off for privacy. Air conditioning worked well. Nicely heated pool right out your backdoor. Association's private gulf beach is about a 3 minute walk and beach chairs are already there so you don't have to carry with you. There is a bike/hike path that runs the entire length of Longboat Key. There are two restaurants (including the very nice Bayou Bar) within a 10 minute walk and numerous others within a 10 minute drive. The main supermarket is a great Publix about a 10 to 15 minute drive and there are a couple of convenience stores closer. Cell phone coverage on Longboat Key can be iffy at times- regardless of carrier- but the condo has a land-line if need be. Owners are very responsive. This is a great place to stay."

An UNFORGETTABLE Vacation in a Tree House on an Island
"Our family spent a week on Jewfish Island and this will likely not soon be forgotten. On our way home we asked of all the amazing vacations we have taken around the world where would this rank and both our kids placed it first or second. We lived in the area previously prior to moving to the Carolina's. We knew a secluded island house, with limited television, intermittent wifi (only via your own connection) would be exactly what our family needed. Unplugging from the world around you to take in the beautiful Sarasota Bay, the Island life, nature and the simpler things was such a blessing. Dolphins, manatees, and an array of fish frolicked by the dock daily. We had use of a kayak and canoe which added to our adventure. We also rented a boat so we could cruise to dinner or lunch on occasion. Just outside this little tree house gem is an amazing dock which you must spend time on. The other side of the island boasts fun in the sun on the sandbar where boats like to hang out so you can enjoy people watching, floating, and it is a great place to find shells and sea life. Afterwards, you can walk back over to your nice secluded side and say ahh. Jordan the property manager is an absolutely top notch host. He goes out of his way when you arrive to help with your luggage and directions. Likewise, Patricia the homeowner is fantastic. Both ensure your stay will be unbelievable and you are happy while there. What I do recommend for future renters... I highly recommend renting a boat. The home does have 3 levels of a gorgeous floating staircase. So mommies that have young children keep this in mind. All bedrooms are open to enjoy the incredible views of the Sarasota Bay from the tree tops. Room dividers are available in the closets for privacy. We did not use them as it was AMAZING open. The home is in the TREES on a gorgeous ISLAND in FL! This is a positive. This also means there are some bugs. So make sure you bring your protection and if you open a slider or door sometimes one or two my fly in. It is to be expected. Wear shoes to your private beaches. Make sure to catch a sunrise and a sunset. You will never forget either. Be certain to enjoy the dock at night as well. Incredible what you will see in the water. The home is stocked with everything you will need. We will definitely be back if possible. We can't give enough praise. Jordan, Pat and Seashell Island Retreat (which we call the Island Treehouse) is in our hearts forever."

"This condo was on a beautiful, quiet beach with a great view! So nice to have washer/dryer in the unit, and both beds were great, firm but comfy! New appliances in well equipped kitchen. Close to grocery store and restaurants in both directions. Highly recommend it!"
