Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Beautiful location on the Gulf of Mexico.

Great location and lovely condo with view of the Gulf of Mexico. Beautiful sunsets and close to St. Armand's Circle. Dave was always a phone call away.

Turtle Crawl Inn Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at this condo for several consecutive years and are planning to return again in 2018. We love the exceptional privacy and quiet atmosphere there. The beach, which is just steps from the condo, is never crowded and the condo"s balcony overlooking the lawn and beach is private and perfect for sunset viewing each evening. There is a lovely pool and outdoor cooking area for those who like to grill their dinner. The owners are easy to work with and available for anything at all with just a quick call. For those not familiar with the area they offer excellent advice. We like the sophistication of Longboat vacationing while still being very close to St. Armand's and Sarasota for shopping and entertainment opportunities. This condo is graciously furnished and maintained, definately a giant step above the usual.

Best condo in Turtle Crawl

  • 5 of 5

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

Gorgeous beach view

  • 5 of 5

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.

Turtle Crawl

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wonderful week

  • 4 of 5

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.
