About Bernadette Cieslak
My husband and I purchased our 2 bedroom in Feb 2010 and it was the coldest Feb on record. It was so cold we could not even walk out on the beach. We started renting the condo on Memorial Day weekend 2010. We live in Ohio and love going to Florida
Bernadette Cieslak purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Bernadette Cieslak chose Longboat Key
We had never been to LBK when we purchased the condo. We love LBK better than any other place in Florida. We looked at many different beach locations before deciding on LBK. This area is a hidden gem.
What makes this Condo unique
LBK is a very quiet beach. I love that we can walk across the street and be on the beach. We often leave our stuff out on the beach and run back to the condo for a nap. We also just purchased another condo on Siesta Key, if you are interested go to my website.

We have stayed in this owner's Siesta Key condo this past summer and enjoyed the area that we decided to come back and rent the Longboat Key Pet Friendly Condo. We brought our dog this time. Condo is in a great location, easy access to Sarasota and fishing. This condo was updated and clean.
The condo had convenient access to the beach, which was right across the street. We enjoyed the area and visited the Mote. We had a family of 6 which the condo size suited our needs. We found that the owners were very helpful with providing games and videos for the kids. We would recommend this condo to anyone who wants to stay close to the beach.
I have to assume I was unlucky, but our stay was not nearly as good as the other reviews. We did not have Internet, air conditioning that got below 73, proper bedding or pillows for bunks. After multiple complaints, more pillows did magically appear (and I started putting a chair under the door know at night). We had sheets, but only 2 small throws and 1 itchy comforter for my kids to use at night. I will say the owners did stay in contact with me over the air conditioning problem and Internet, but neither were fixed and I was not given any type of refund. The coffee maker had mold growing in it. After moving the coffee table, black dog hair was all over the condo the remainder of the trip. The door was a pain to lock. Owners claimed it was due to the alarm system to make sure air isn't running while doors/windows were open. I think the door and lock need an adjustment so they actually line up better. My parents have a place down the road, I was hoping this was a place my family could rent so we could be near them when we have whole family vacations. Unfortunately I will not be staying here again. We have rented places before and have not needed to contact owners for anything, we are not high maintenance people but do expect to have the items that are listed in the rental information. The location is nice and condo did have most things needed (excluding bunk bed needs).
We are disappointed to hear that you were not completely satisfied. We informed you that the pillows were on the top of the bunkbed , they did not magically appear. We live in Ohio, so we nor did our cleaning lady secretly sneak in. The only concern you addressed was not finding the pillows and the ac/internet.
You did not complain about the cleanliness, if there was a concern my cleaning would have taken care of this immediately.
The problems you experienced with the internet and ac was due to you not following the directions of keeping the doors closed. The AC is a smart system that shuts down when the doors are left open. We informed you of this. Our smart system detected "tampering" with the system therefore this interfered with the internet usage and the ac. We had Comcast check out the system and they confirmed that someone tampered with the smart system. Since your stay there have been no complaints of the internet, ac or the door locks. Also before your stay there were no complaints. As for the door, we get multiple compliments for having a key-less entry system.

Very nice place to stay.
Condo was very nice,clean,and well furnished.enjoyed sitting out on lanai and having some drinks.
Convenient, comfortable and relaxing
We stayed here last summer and had a wonderful time. The condo is convenient to everything--St. Armand's, groceries, Coquina Beach, Anna Maria Island. We had no problems with the wifi or cell service. Our dogs were comfortable and enjoyed people watching from the balcony. The beach across the street isn't overly crowded and we saw a manatee while swimming! Thank you for a wonderful stay!!
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for the review
Longboat Key is a very upscale barrier island which is connected by bridges to Anna Maria Key to the North and St. Armand's Key and Sarasota to the South. Sarasota Airport is an easy 15-20 minute drive and Tampa International Airport is an hour's drive North.
