"I don't normally write reviews but we loved this place so much, I'm feeling the need!
My wife an I are in our late 40's and when we travel from PA to a beach our goal is for great weather, an ocean front unit & plenty of relaxation. This resort is perfect! If you are looking for a studio unit, this is the one for you! after our 2nd trip to the resort, this unit will be the one we choose from this point on. It was really clean & updated. A complete kitchen w/full size fridge, stove, microwave & dishwasher, plenty of plates, classes & silverware, the fan over the bed was a really nice luxury. To be honest, when we weren't basking in the sun on the beach steps away, we were on the ground level patio enjoying the view of the water & just listened to the waves, it never gets old!! The TV was a nice size but frankly, we never even turned it on.
I was lucky enough to meet & talk with the owner of the unit during our stay, she was a very nice lady who really seemed to care about how our stay was going, we loved that! :) I seriously have zero complaints about the unit....well maybe a larger beach umbrella would be nicer to hide under to escape the rays haha...The unit & resort in general for what you get in this area was A1 & extremely affordable!! could be the largest beach in longboat.
A few suggestions for restaurants are the drydock seafood grill (10 min. drive) was our favorite, lazy lobster a few mins north was very good as well. we also drove an hour and 15 mins. to punta Gorda fla. & enjoyed an all you can eat seafood buffet at Hurrican Charlies on the bay, the buffet is Friday nights only.....If you love crab legs until you can't eat another bite, we strongly suggest making a trip here. not a bad price at $28 pp. We used to visit myrtle & ocean city.....not anymore, Longboat key Florida is the place for us. Try it once & I can assure you, you will feel the same!! The Gulf water is amazingly clear with very little seaweed & no jellyfish sightings!! Can't wait to go back...miss it already"
