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.

Our stay at Zilli Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is our third January staying at this beautiful Beach House.

Every year it gets better ! We have meet very nice people at the beach. The beach is a hop, skip and jump away from the Villa. You feel like the beach belongs to you only. It's nice and private . My husband and I enjoy the 2 hour walk every morning.

There is also a nice refreshing pool . Very clean and the gardens are nicely groomed. It has a BBQ for meal time.

When you enter the Villa it takes your breath away !! It has a fabulous décor with nice bright colors. When opening the curtains off the dinning room you can see the spectacular sunsets every evening in the comfort of your own home.

It's a two bedroom bungalow with no stairs to worry about with your own ensuite full bathroom . Each room is equipped with your own TV/free WI FI is also available.

The gully kitchen has everything needed for a perfect dinner party. It has stainless steel appliances and a great butcher high top table with stools for a nice cozy breakfast in the morning.

The living room has everything you need for a family movie night together. Comfortable love seat and full couch with side coffee tables. (Don't forget to use the coasters ) Mr. Zilli is very particular about his Beach House Villa . You will see why !

We felt right at home and treated the Villa like it was our own. I'm sure you will do the same when you experience your stay.

Beach towels and bathroom towels are nice and clean for you to enjoy with fresh linens on each bed.

I'm sure you will enjoy your stay at Zilli Villa. Mr. Zilli is vey attentive to your needs and if anything missing Mr. Zilli will be at his disposal ASAP

Very nice holiday to relax , enjoy and not a worry in the world.

Looking forward to our return in |January.

Wonderful

  • 4 of 5

We had 4 weeks at this beautiful house. Everything was fine.

One bathroom is old fashion and the shower is nothing for women.

We had romantic sunsets! The garden is very private and you have a nice

view to the beach.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the villa. The home is beautiful, well- maintained and spacious. Literally steps from the beach. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a relaxing visit to beautiful Longboat Key. The owner provided many extras that other places don't include, such as a tent/canopy to set up on the beach-- one less thing for us to pack! The owner was great to work with. We plan to return to the villa next summer.

Privacy and convenience on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

One of the great things about Zilli Villa is the convenience - park a few steps from the front door, a few steps out the back door is a great beach on the gulf. Property is very well maintained, upscale furnishings. Choice of beach or pool. Much better than condo - no neighbors above or below. Close to restaurants and Sarasota attractions. The Zillis and on site staff are very attentive and quickly attend to any problems. This was our third visit. We like the area so much we moved here.
