LongBoat Key Private Home Beach House
We would absolutely recommend this rental property. Home was clean, with an amazing view. We spent most of our time on the beach or the screened in lanai. Great beach for sea shells. Awesome washer & dryer. Rinse off open shower station in front of Lanai. Enclosed outdoor shower is off of the master, was great for a full shower outside! Plenty of linens and towels. There were a handful of basic spices in the kitchen cupboard. Misc. sand toys, drying rack, and 2 beach umbrellas were on the lanai for our use. A basic folding table that could be brought out to the lanai for puzzles or games in the evening would have been great. We made due with the low side tables. We sat on the lanai every evening with the older boys and played games by candle light, listening to the waves, which I know will be life long memories for all of us. Spare toddler mattress in kids room was very handy with us bringing a toddler. Many rental condo's have lots of knick-nack stuff which does add to the charm, if you do not have children. This beach home is beautifully decorated, but not lots of decorative "stuff". I think the cordless phone is the only thing I had to move up so our toddler would not get to it. Publix grocery and CVS drug stores are walking distance which is SO handy. Photos accurately depict the property. The large dinning room table is at the front of the house, which means no view. There is also a breakfast bar, but it faces the kitchen rather than the beach. There is no table and chairs to allow for eating inside, with a view of the beach. That would have been a disappointment for hot summer months, and the only drawback if you have a large group. There is a patio table and 6 chairs on the uncovered beach side patio, which worked well for us as our visit was in November. In my head I pictured the long dining room table in front of the sliding glass doors. No misrepresentation on the owners part at all. I just put the pictures from the listing together in my head wrong. The owner was very gracious in working with our out of the ordinary schedule, and my numerous questions. I wouldn't expect that during high season, didn't expect it in November, but it was very appreciated. My husband likes to visit new locations, but if we ever return for a longboat key vacation, I will be checking to see if we can stay here again. A home is only perfect when it's your own. This was certainly the closest we have come to a perfect vacation rental.
