  • Lovely experience

    "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."

  • Perfect Getaway

    "My husband and I recently returned from our Spring getaway. We live in Central FL, but, need to visit the beach several times a year. We found the perfect cottage to enjoy the beach, restaurants and nearby attractions. The cottage is like your home away from home. We found the cottage to be very clean, it has every appliance you would need, a wonderful private patio, and it is located on a very quiet street in The Village of Longboat Key. This was our second visit to the "cottage" and we are looking forward to returning in the fall. Thank you Rusty and Christine for being wonderful hosts and providing us with a home away from home."

  • This may be THE ideal vacation rental place!

    "We rented the Hideaway Bay home for the month of January, 2016 and it was spectacular! The house could not be more completely appointed - from the gourmet kitchen with every imaginable device, tool, gadget, and appliance (including a really nice espresso/cappucino maker) -- to the pool, pool table, bicycles, HDTV, Xbox 306 game console, dock, canoe, fishing and beach gear -- it really was even better than advertised! We never even took advantage of the tennis courts, basketball hoop, dart board or ping pong table! As lovely as all the photos are on the VRBO website, they do not begin to do justice to how nice this home really is. The decor throughout the home was impeccable. Eric and Barb have gone to great lengths to see that your every need is met. This even includes labels on light switches (there are lots!!!) and in the kitchen pantry to help you find and store all the great cookware! There is a great large gas grill poolside too, which worked great! We have already booked another month for next season."

  • 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."
