Our family has been vacationing in Longboat Key for many years, however our best two weeks were spent recently at Gulfside Villa. Was the listing accurate....yes.....but upon arrival we were all pleasantly surprised that everything was better than expected.....rooms larger...kitchen fabulously well stocked.....pool and furniture exceptional...and wonderful customer service by Consierge John.
We were able to enjoy the beautiful beach, the Mote Aquarium, the exquisite Euphemia Haye restaurant, and the fun of St Armand's....ice cream included. This property gets my highest recommendation and we look forward to returning.
Beautiful home. We stayed three weeks, and would have liked to stay longer.
Beach is just steps from the patio. Very private and quiet. Patio had a
retractable awning, so you could pick either sun or shade. Kitchen was
fitted with anything you needed for any meal, so you could just stay in and
enjoy the property. Sunsets were spectacular. Would go back in a minute,
but they are all booked for next year.
What a beautiful setting to spend our family vacation in. The home, pool, and ocean views were just as described and more. The small issues we had were taken care of immediately. St. Armands was a great place to spend a day. Many wonderful restaurants, but the home was so great we seldom ate out. Hope to return in the future!
When searching for a home for our family vacations I look for one that is large enough to give everyone their own space, attractive furnishings and nice amenities. Gulfside Villa filled the bill perfectly. Our son and daughter in law were delighted to have their own master suite on the first floor not far from where their 2 year old slept. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the upstairs master suite with its' huge windows and panoramic views of the Gulf. And the queen bedroom upstairs was perfectly suited for our daughter. Although we went out to eat most nights, the kitchen was well appointed to make breakfast and lunch a breeze each day. With a 2 year old among us the location was perfect - a pool for lounging while he slept and only a short walk to the beach for shelling, walking, fishing, etc. Gulfside Villa was like staying in a luxurious 5-star hotel with all the coziness of home. Even a rainy day made for a fun game day indoors! If you are looking for the perfect place for your family to reconnect, Gulfside Villa is the place!
Great home. Lots of things to do and privacy if you choose so. Had 9 family members stay comfortably and when the baby woke up, the doors were solid enough, you could not hear. Beach was close and pool was nice, except the birds who liked to go in the water. I hope to stay there again sometime.
This property exceeded expectations in every way! The decor will appeal to those with a preference for sophisticated simplicity. With 4 couples in the home, there was ample privacy and space for everyone. The outdoor furnishings were comfortable and plentiful. One highlight of this home is the kitchen, which is outfitted with every possible appliance and amenity. We enjoyed cooking together in this space so much that we ate out only twice in 7 days. This home is located directly on the beach and we rarely saw more than a dozen other people in a given day. I highly recommend this property!
