Recent Longboat Key reviews
"I never write reviews, but have decided to do so in this case because the owner is so terrific.
The unit was perfect for me (I stayed a month)--well kept and very well outfitted (beach umbrellas, cooler, beach towels, to name a few) in a small complex that overall felt very comfortable. If you are a dog owner you'll be especially pleased-- the unit is complete with pillows for your dog to lounge on! I didn't have a car, so the location was also perfect; I could walk across the street to the beach, around the corner to the grocery store, pharmacy or tennis, or catch a bus into town.
Joan, the owner, was fantastic-- so important in renting. She helped me find a dog sitter when I had to travel. She always responded quickly with information. And when I accidentally ruined a stove top burner, she was very fair-- charging me only $25 from my security deposit (the remainder of which was returned very promptly.)
The only reason I didn't give the property five stars is because it fronts a busy road. For me, this wasn't a big deal-- I got used to it very quickly. And besides, when you're from Minnesota you'll take a little road noise any day in exchange for being able to sit out on a screened-in porch in January and watch the sunset over the ocean.
I'd like to thank Joan for a very lovely time."

"Brian and Karen, Sunshine Cottage is a delightful "get away spot". You provide all that is needed for a great vacation. We appreciated the access to bikes and beach accessories. The location is terrific! The water views, proximity to the beach and pet friendliness make the cottage very welcoming. Thank you for sharing this piece of paradise."

"Our two week stay in this condo at Cedars West was delightful. The unit is comfortable and extremely well equipped. We drove, so I took many things with us; many we did not need. The beds are comfy, the lanai is great, the sunsets spectacular and the ice maker is beyond adequate, ( a big deal for us) Everything is easily accessible from the location, north or south. There are many delightful places to eat and enjoy close by. The landscaping and maintenance at Cedars West is lovely, so well manicured. Peaceful, quiet, safe & secure, endless beach and so private. We also have been vacationing in the Sarasota area for 25 years. This is the best acomodations we've ever had. We definitely intend to go again."
