A True Gem!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was truly special!! The photos accurately represent the loveliness of the location, the interior decor, and the million dollar views from this beach house. The communication with the property managers was 5-star, and the decks and beach chairs, etc. were super! We had an amazing vacation, with hours spent on the decks enjoying the sound of the surf and the beautiful views. Very few people came to this beach, so much of the time we had it all to ourselves...a perfect getaway from work and the congestion of the metropolitan area!! Everything was clean and well maintained at the property. The local grocery store, Publix, is almost within walking distance, with a good wine assortment, great seafood, and nice collection of gourmet cheeses. A few minor points: it would be great if the pots and pans could be updated, they're due for a refresh especially as we took advantage of the fresh, fresh seafood in the area-and a steamer would be nice! Also, the towels could use updating as they're showing wear. For us, though, these issues did not detract from the awesome location!! We highly recommend this property as an amazing oceanfront getaway, especially if you're looking for a quieter option away from the beach resort scene!! Thank you for a wonderful stay!!

Magical Time on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my mom's 80th birthday at this amazing beach house. We had two couples, granny and a young teen. We all fit comfortably and the views of the ocean from every room was just spectacular. Walking on the beach and swimming in the ocean every day just feet from the house was amazing. We also visited the Mote Marine Aquarium which was fantastic. I would highly recommend this beach house for any families looking for a perfect place to relax on the beach with all the amenities of home. It was truly wonderful and I am sure we will be back!

Longboat Key Beach House - Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this comfortable and beautiful home for a week. Not only was it satisfying to live in and play/ swim/run/walk/sun/bike all around, but our visiting guests were so pleased with the house and the view that they asked for this website so they could book it in the future! Highly recommended.

Great Oceanview House

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to LBK for 7 years and this was the first time we stayed oceanfront. What an amazing week. We didn't want to go anywhere else. We had two couples and one child. The bedroom on the top floor was a perfect oasis for the 10 year old. The views as soon as you walk in are heavenly! We enjoyed the back deck the most. We are looking forward to coming back next year!

Beautiful Beach Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

As someone who loves the beach and has stayed in many a beach rental, I can honestly say that this is one of my favorites so far. The beach is beautiful and sparsely populated, the sunsets are spectacular, and the night sky is amazing as well. The upper and beach decks are perfect for dolphin watching and I even got to see an Eagle Ray jump from the water!

While this is not the place to stay if you are looking for entertainment and nightlife within close proximity, it is definately the place to be to enjoy a lovely, well appointed home and it`s very beautiful surroundings
