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.
Our family stayed at the villa for 10 nights in April 2016. Four adults - a couple in their late 70's, a couple in their 40's and a 9 year old boy. We had a fabulous time The villa had everything we needed and is furnished to a high standard. The view from the huge window in the master bedroom is stunning as you overlook the beach and sea. The beach is tranquil and not busy and just down the path from the villa so couldn't be any closer if you wanted it to be. The selection of sunbeds to use around the pool and beach was great and helped you relax and soak up the sun. The pool table, table football and bikes were all enjoyed and made good use of as was the kayak on calm sea days. The pool was especially enjoyed by Finlay and the ducks who visited on a daily basis. We loved to watch the dolphins swim by most days and enjoyed seeing the birds take their dives for dinner! The walk, which is accessible for any age, along the beach is relaxing and interesting while you look for shells. If we were not on the beach or around the pool the lovely relaxing outdoor area with optional covered verandah was ideal. The whole set up of the villa was perfect and had everything we needed to have a brilliant holiday.
I am very selfish in writing this as I don't really want anyone else to know about this hidden jewel!!!! This home is perfect... everything you might want... it has.
Who provides a 5 bedroom 4.5 bath house with pool.... fresh cut flowers... beautiful appointments...fabulous sunsets... quiet area, basically your own beach, Villeroy and Boch china, very nice artwork, binoculars.... a classy place.. spacious bedrooms....? this place does.
.we would rent again in a heartbeat...!!! perfect for a couple or a family. We had 6 adults and children..... dont think twice....there is nothing more you could want.... or need....it's worth it...just do it!! ... make a memory!!!
This house, location, amenities, and cleanliness far exceeded our expectations. Our family of 8 plus two small children, age 1 and 3 were very comfortable. The pool was perfect. The website description doesn't tell about all the extras available to the guests like bicycles, pool and beach toys, beach chairs, games, etc. Fantastic week and we would be happy to stay here again. It's refreshing to discover when something under promises and over delivers.
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!
