About Bernadette Cieslak

My husband and I purchased our 2 bedroom in Feb 2010 and it was the coldest Feb on record. It was so cold we could not even walk out on the beach. We started renting the condo on Memorial Day weekend 2010.

We live in Ohio and love going to Florida

Bernadette Cieslak purchased this condo in 2010

Why Bernadette Cieslak chose Longboat Key

We had never been to LBK when we purchased the condo. We love LBK better than any other place in Florida. We looked at many different beach locations before deciding on LBK. This area is a hidden gem.

What makes this condo unique

LBK is a very quiet beach. I love that we can walk across the street and be on the beach. We often leave our stuff out on the beach and run back to the condo for a nap.

We also just purchased another condo on Siesta Key, if you are interested go to my website at www.longboatbeach.com

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bernadette, I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your condo. The location is PERFECT!!! We loved how quiet the beach was, there were NO crowds. We felt like we had a private beach. My husband found a sand dollar right on the beach. This is the first time for us coming to LBK, but plan on coming back. Your booking was very easy with doing it all online.

Convenient, comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last summer and had a wonderful time. The condo is convenient to everything--St. Armand's, groceries, Coquina Beach, Anna Maria Island. We had no problems with the wifi or cell service. Our dogs were comfortable and enjoyed people watching from the balcony. The beach across the street isn't overly crowded and we saw a manatee while swimming! Thank you for a wonderful stay!!

no cell phone coverage

  • 3 of 5

With all the great details listed, one BIG detail not mentioned is that there is NO cell phone coverage, except for some Verizon users apparently..otherwise you must leave to make/receive calls and texts. I know it's not anyone's fault that there is no cell phone tower in the area, but we really needed our phones for a number of reasons! So driving to a parking area at 11 pm at night in my pajamas to catch up on messages, was not fun. Also, for the listing title having "pet friendly" included, you better make sure your dog is mute. Even though there were other renters with dogs, there is one owner with Bernadette's number, who is quick to call and complain that OUR dog was barking! Guess she must have a verizon phone, but Bernadette had to email me about the complaint. Turns out the snoopy neighbor isn't very good at snooping, because it was not our dog, but that was more that added to our frustration. ALSO, when you stay there, make sure you BRING TOILET PAPER, and a flashlight! The grocery store, Publix, closes at 9pm, and CVS at 10pm. On the other hand, the beach is awesome and just across the road (FYI dogs are not allowed on any of the beaches either).

Owner's Response: Longboat does not have cell phone towers on the island to maintain the prestige and beauty of the island. It is disappointing that this guest took offense about her nuisance dog. This complex is pet friendly and guest must take responsibility for their pets. We want to continue to allow pets. A roll of toilet paper and paper towels are provided with check in, this information was given seven days prior to arrival in the welcome letter. Longboat is a quaint island and things do close early.

Super clean condo and perfect location!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved how close we were to the beach. The condo was very clean. We had a family of 6 and it was ok. The condo had a comfortable hideaway sofa for extra guests. We will return!!!!

Wonderful Stay on LBK

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 5 and had a wonderful stay on LBK. The condo had everything we needed beach towels and sheets. The kitchen was fully equipped: pots, pans and even a blender. The beach was right across the street and the owners had beach chairs and umbrellas. The location to area attractions was perfect. The owners were very helpful and had a nice website with all the information of several condos to rent in the area. We would definitely recommend renting from this owner when vacationing in Florida.
