We spent a lovely week at Turtle Crawl Inn (#T401) in March of 2010. Our beach front condo was perfectly located in a quiet stretch at the middle of Longboat Key. Restaurants, retail and grocery store are all close by. We quickly felt at home and loved the AMAZING views and sunsets our condo offered! What a joy to drink coffee on the balcony and watch the dolphins. Our unit was very clean and comfortable and offered most everything we needed for a week's stay - a perfect and unpretentious place to relax and unwind. The beach area is quiet and just a few steps from the building. We had fun playing shuffleboard and there is also a small putting green and cabana. Beach umbrellas, towels and chairs were provided as well. We rented our condo through a private owner and communication was excellent. He checked in with us at the beginning of our stay to make certain everything was adequate and then again at the end of our stay. We'll definitely stay here again on future trips to LBK and would recommend it to others.
My husband and I have stayed at Turtle Crawl before, but this was the first time staying at the Wieland's (owners) condo. We can definitely attest -like other reviewers have- that the updates, location and view are top notch. We especially appreciated being on the south side of building where we could appreciate the morning sun. The unobstructed view to the west provided the perfect backdrop for coffee in the morning and wine in the evening watching the sunset. Also appreciated the extra beach towels and umbrella. Weather was great for late November and we enjoyed a lot of time on the sand. will look forward to coming back again. - Helene & Bill
My wife and I (with a few days from an adult son) had a wonderful time in this condo. It is clean, comfortable, quiet, and had a gorgeous 180degree view of the beach and the Gulf. We could sit on the 4th floor balcony listening to the waves and when the sun was too hot, we could move inside and with the sliding doors open have the same view. The beach was never crowded and afforded miles of walking. There are chairs and a covered area making time on the beach comfortable and easy. And my son and I held fierce shuffleboard competitions. The location is excellent. A large, excellent supermarket a couple of miles away. Restaurants within minutes drive. Finally, Wielands (condo owners) were a pleasure to work with. They were friendly, responsive and helpful from start to finish. If you are looking for a lovely, relaxing getaway on the beautiful Gulf Coast, you can not do better than this.
My husband and I just returned from a wonderful stay at Turtle Crawl. We have already booked the condo for 2016 which will be our 4th stay. Dave is a private owner and has just received a "Certificate of Excellence" Award from Trip Advisor which places him in the top 10% of all businesses worldwide on Trip Advisor. This award is given for consistently earning high ratings and great reviews and is definitely deserved. The condo is immaculate upon arrival and has all the amenities you would need. There are beach chairs, towels and umbrellas in the spacious walk in closet in the master bedroom. The condo is on a lovely, white sandy beach and there is a small, heated, secluded pool and a fun putting course. The view from the lanai is spectacular and the sunsets are breathtaking. There are coin operated laundry facilities available. Dave always calls to make sure there are no question or concerns, which there never are. You are close to great restaurants, a grocery store and pharmacy and Armands Circle which is a shoppers delight.
We had a wonderful week staying at this condo. The view of the beach is very beautiful and the sunsets are spectacular. The beds were extremely comfortable and the condo was super clean. The one disadvantage is that there is no dishwasher. Also, the wireless internet connection was very spotty - sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't. There are two beach umbrellas and chairs in the master bedroom closet which we used everyday. Another lovely thing was that there were always beach chairs available for use on the beach at no cost and the beach was always quiet and never crowded. It made for a very relaxing getaway.
My wife and I have stayed at Dave and Betty's condo two years in a row and we plan to return next year as well. The condo is a corner unit that provides plenty of light and amazing views of the gulf from the private balcony. The condo is extremely clean and the kitchen had everything we needed. The main living area is tastefully decorated and the beds are very comfortable. The location is ideal with many restaurants within a short drive as well as a Publix just down the road. Armand's Circle and downtown Sarasota are also an easy drive from the condo. Dave has always checked in with us to confirm that everything is fine and that all our needs are being met. We've stayed at other places on Longboat and Lido Key and this is easily our favorite. Our only regret is that we can't stay longer.
This condo has a beautiful view and is in a small complex. It is quiet and the beach is not crowded. The unit has everything you will need. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking, but there is not a dishwasher. It is a corner unit, so you have views of the ocean on the side also. There is a small pool surrounded by lush palm trees and landscaping. There is a putting green for the golfers or the children. The beds are comfortable and that helped us enjoy our stay. We would have liked it more if we hadn't had so much rain. However, the beach is right outside, so if it rains, you can be inside quickly. There are plenty of free beach loungers on the beach and the condo has two umbrellas and two more beach chairs in the spacious master closet. There are two televisions, one in the living room and one in the bedroom. Dave is always a phone call away. He is great to work with. The keys are in a key box, so no hassle with check in. That is a great perk! There is a Publix grocery store and a CVS pharmacy very close by. Both have all the groceries, beach supplies, and souvenirs you could want. You will not be disappointed with this condo!
Ringling Museum, Selby Botanical Gardens, Mote Marine Famous St. Armand's Circle to the South, world class Restaurants, Shopping and more, a must visit.
