Very clean cottage style condo. Kitchen was recently remodeled. We slept 3 adults and an infant. Owner was very accommodating and professional. Provided information on sitters and crib, car seat, and stroller rental. Back door opens to the quiet canal.
The street is on a nature preserve park that has a jungle gym and multiple paths to walk or jog. Also on the street is the best restaurant on Longboat Key, Harry's Continental Kitchen. There is also a gourmet deli with prepared foods. At the end of the street is a corner store tat has EVERYTHING.
Across the street is the beautiful private beach. It's a 5 minute walk from door to sand.
My two best friends and I recently stayed for three nights. We needed a place that was affordable but comfortable and had a dock to keep our boat. We were there to fish! Finding a place that had a dock right off the bay was crucial because we didn’t want to have deal with putting the boat in the water each morning or paying someone else to dock our boat. When I came across this condo I was very pleased with the pictures and info, but didn’t want to get my hopes up too much. When we arrived it was clear right away that we had found the perfect place for our fishing trip. It had everything, and much more, that we needed for a great weekend. This place is nice! The dock was perfect for our boat. The patio was great in the evenings for hanging out, drinking a cold one and discussing the plan for the next day. There is a little convenient store down on the corner that is great since we didn’t have time to get out to the grocery store during the day. To top it all off, we caught some very nice redfish and snook while there. The owner was very nice, helpful and easy to coordinate our arrival with. We will defiantly be back, hopefully very soon!
This waterfront unit is as attractive, comfortable, and clean as any unit we have rented in over 20 years of visiting SW Florida. Dealing with the owner was very pleasant and we appreciated the in-person welcome and orientation for our first stay on Longboat Key. We were very comfortable all week, whether inside or enjoying the canal on the nice patio; and, appreciated all the extra touches and the complete furnishings. The unit was exactly as pictured online and we did not need a thing, especially in the well-stocked kitchen.
The boat 'trolley' worked fine from the storage area to the kayak launching point on the bay. I enjoyed both of the sit-on kayaks the first few days of warmer weather, and then switched over to the Schwinn Cruiser bike to explore Longboat when the weather cooled our last few days of stay, including Durante Park next door in the late pm when there were few walkng visitors. What a great natural area to have so close and we enjoyed some walks there too using the side entrance, as we did on the beach using the access provided. Also, the abundant birdlife was enjoyable, both from the patio and while on the bay kayaking and fishing. And overall the location was convenient to both Bradenton Beach and Sarasota, and the unit was quiet with little traffic and thoughtful neighbors.
We highly recommend this unit on Longboat, and have already passed on the VRBO website address to friends.
We were lucky to find this location available; it was a little off the main road, which made it quiet, yet close to a wonderful restaurant (Harry's) and a convenience store; there are not many on the island!
We loved having the use of the beach bikes and would have used the kayaks if it had been less windy.
Very clean and up to date furnishings, especially the shower and king size bed; very comfortable.
Appliances very new and easy to use too. Just a short walk to view Sarasota Bay and loved walking
the Joan Durante Park which is right beside this location. Would definitely return again!
We stayed here for 2 weeks in Nov 2012, what a great place! Everything is new & very comfortable. We loved the park & used the kayaks & bikes, so nice to have right there. Lots of conveniences close by, the beach access IS very private...we were the only ones there several times. Plan to come back in the summer!
We have stayed for almost 5 weeks, and enjoyed the place immensely. Very good N Longboat Key location - the use of bikes and Kayaks allowed us to explore LBK and Joan Durante Park further.
Walking distance to 2 very good restaurants and the corner store. The beach was a short walk and Anna Maria Island only 2 miles north. Best Island Value ! - Highly recommended.
