Spread the Word: We enjoyed ten great days in your fantastic beach house with our three small kids, we could benefit from the convenient setup and proximity to the beach. A new experience were the oriental rains in the first few days, which turned into wonderful sunshine. For us a young Swiss-Italian family living in South Carolina it was a great vacation. Thanks, Family Procacci

Our two-week stay is almost over but we’ve had another memorable vacation at this beach house…we awoke on June 2 to a beautiful assortment of shells we’ve never seen before!! Walking along the beach that morning was a time we’ll never forget. The strong waves created a ledge or shelf along the sand with countless shells waiting to be found. Our second week’s stay has been more like the typical Florida vacations we remember…warm temps, blue water….

Spread the Word: I, my daughter and her husband, are here because of the most kind generosity of a good friend, Marion. She has been here many times and has spread her love of this place with other people and love for them. Perhaps this good will can be passed on by others who will occupy this beautiful place. Sincere best wishes to the owners of this property and to all who will occupy it in the future and God bless Marion. ROSE – Cinti, OH

Thanks for another fantastic vacation. We had a “wonderful” time and already looking forward to next year. Again, thanks for sharing your home. Jim & Pam – Grosse Ile, MI

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our second time we stayed at the villa. It is everything they promised, clean, well maintained, plenty of room and all the amenities you need. We enjoyed the all glass doors overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. You have your own private courtyard. Close and convenient to activities, attractions, shopping and restaurants, but we cooked a lot at the villa and really didn't have to go anywhere because it is the perfect place to relax, play, swim, collect shells, watch the sunsets, laugh and make memories. It is like your own private home. Make sure you visit the Mote Museum as there is so much sea life you haven't seen before. We also rented a boat at a marina and had a blast! We were swimming and manatee came up to us and we also saw dolphins jumping and playing. Got in a little fishing too! We look forward to returning hopefully next year.

VILLA ZILLI-OUR BEST OCEANFRONT VACATIONS

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed at Jim's Villa Zilli oceanfront property 6 times in the past few years. Our stays at the Villa have been our most memorable Florida vacations to date. The oceanfront property is located directly on one of the most beautiful strips of beach on Longboat Key. Uniquely located Villa allows privacy along with access to the heated pool and BBQ grills with tables located within a few feet of Villa. Beautifully landscaped private oceanfront grounds with multiple patios. Beautiful evening sunsets. I have never felt so much at "home" as I do inside this professionally decorated home. Large kitchen, dining table for the whole family, a most comfortable living room with large screen TV over fireplace. The 2 bedrooms 2 full bathrooms offer total privacy for our family. The "classic deco" Florida color bathroom tiles are my wife's favorite. Home has always been clean upon our arrivals. Many great restaurants within a 5-10 minute. drive. Jim is a fantastic host.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

This is just a great home in so many ways. From the photos and description it's already apparent that it is direct waterfront with a lovely private yard abutting the beach and separated by the low Sea Grape hedge. The photos, while accurate, don't tell the whole story. For example, the house-keeping was impeccable and everything was immaculate; the kitchen was fully equipped; a bonus is the covered, private parking 10' from the front door. In addition to being directly on the Gulf, the location is perfect not only because of it's solitude but at the same time it's proximity to great dining and shopping at St. Armand's Circle and also Sarasota. Bird watchers will enjoy the daily visits of a Great Blue Heron that obviously fishes nearby and then dries off and preens in the front yard. He is not intrusive and is more than happy to share this oasis with you. We're so glad we found Zilli Villa and look forward to returning.

Awesome Villa! Clean and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We are Longboat Key regulars...we have stayed many places along the key and Zilli Villa is probably our favorite place yet. Gorgeous views from the Villa. The Villa was clean and comfortable. We are just trying to find out when we can go again...Hope to be back soon to Longboat Key!

  • 4 of 5

Neat, clean, quiet. Home was spacious.

Pictures on the website were faithful, except the pool was not as large as the pictures seemed to show. The pool was very clean and private.

Beach was private & felt secluded. Lanai was great for cookouts.

All appliances worked well.

Good overall value for 6 people.
