Perfect beach home

  • 5 of 5

There was absolutely nothing wrong with or missing from this home on the beach. It is in a quiet area of Long Boat Key with stores conveniently located nearby. In the front area of the house facing the Gulf, I couldn't hear anything but the peaceful sound of waves. All the pictures show how wonderful this house is. Wish I could've stayed forever!

Met many of our needs. Was extremely convenient.

  • 3 of 5

This property is cozy and homey. It is not completely up to date, but suited us on most levels.

The biggest set back to privacy is the public access abutting the side of the house, alongside the deck. Since it was Christmas week, there was much traffic, public foot traffic to the beach. Visitors plop themselves directly in front of our prime view, which we paid for, not them. This was so very disconcerting-especially if you wanted to take head on photos of the beautiful sunsets!

The only meal we make while we’re on vacation is hearty breakfasts. So, dealing with frypans that are bowed in the middle is not pleasant. One other thing, no matter how high you put the volume, even to the hilt, on the TV in the living space, it is barely audible. If you are going to make this rental available during Christmas vacation, then you need to have technicians willing to come out even on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day!

I would be extremely happy if there were tv’s in both first level bedrooms-and more than CNN for cable news viewing!

Cute little beach house with wonderful deck and view of the Gulf

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week and the deck and view were exceptional. It was lovely waking up every morning looking at the Gulf and pelicans diving for food.

The house was nice and homey and the kitchen nicely redone and well stocked. I would say that it was not great for 5 adults as the upstairs (3rd) bedroom left something to be desired (we have 2 sons in their 20s). In addition, the upstairs bathroom has a very short shower and you have to bend to get your hair wet. You really have to use the downstairs shower.

If you have small children the upstairs bedroom is not an option as it requires a steep climb up a metal spiral staircase.

I would stay there again if we only used the bedrooms on the first floor.

Beach House Property is beautiful right on the water.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the Beach House Property. Was fully equipped and in a great location to stores if you did need anything. The bedrooms down stairs were perfect for 2 couples . The upstairs bedroom is truly suited for children not another adult couple , being a set of bunk beds. Although the bottom bunk was queen size and we had plenty of room, However it had everything we needed and had a great time. You can't beat the location.

Awesome Longboat location

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location......that's what it's all abut at this beach house!

Snuggled next to the dunes with an expansive deck, this charming rental had us all in heaven for the week. The beach and clear gulf waters made us never want to leave.

Wonderful but flawed

  • 3 of 5

The Beachhouse has a wonderful frontage to the beach. At times this gives an unrestricted view of the beach and the ocean with immediate beach access and is quite superlative. However, renters should be aware that the road immediately in front of the house is at times very busy and traffic noise can be intrusive, day and night. There is public beach access right next to the house and while this is not busy people tend to enter here and set themselves up on the beach with umbrellas, awnings etc. right in front of the house which reduces privacy and mars the outlook. There were quite a number of housekeeping and maintenance issues when we arrived to which Mike was very attentive. The somewhat aged and tired nature of the house generally may be quaint and authentic to the 1950s but does not really justify the price tag in our opinion.

Owner's Response: Thank you for renting the Beach House on sought after Longboat Beach. This is an island with a road that takes you on and off the island. We are thankful for this beautiful home that is located on the beach with steps away from the Gulf of Mexico! Homes and condos are set up this way on this particular island. We are truly sorry you thought it was too noisy. The home sits back a bit from the road and when you are on the deck (best place to be) you hear the sounds of the water. Thank you! Mike and Sandy
