Attractions: Longboat Key is known for its leisure days spent strolling the beaches or biking down the island. As a barrier island to the town known as the area's "cultural capital", an assortment of entertainment options can be found at nearby Sarasota where attractions and activities abound for all age groups.

St. Armand’s Circle of Lido Key is a must-see in the area. Located just 10 miles south of Silver Sands this European-inspired outdoor shopping arena includes a large selection of classy stores, restaurants, jewelry galleries, and more! Rumor has it that circus magnate John Ringling won Lido Key in a poker game and turned the sister island to Longboat Key into a world-famous attraction.

  • 5 of 5

Everything we wanted. A great location. Very friendly.very well kept and very clean. Our room had a very nice floor plan with all the convinces of home. The one negative was our mattress.we had a king bed with deep dips on each side of bed. You rolled into a spot and stayed there. Poor sleeping.

Steps to beach. Pool outside the screened lanai. Management works hard to please.

  • 4 of 5

Long Boat key is beautiful and quiet compared to other beach communities near Sarasota. The condo is a great home base for exploring the area. There are some fabulous restaurants close by, both fine dining on Longboat Key and casual on Anna Maria Island. The museums and theaters in Sarasota are a short drive away. The apartment's decor is fresh and updated and in good taste. The space is cozy and fine for two. There's sleeping space for two more and I suppose if you're out all day enjoying the great weather it wouldn't feel too cramped. With a couple of caveats all necessities are provided. The apartment could have used a cutting board in the kitchen and fold up drying rack for wet bathing suits and towels. The pots and pans were adequate but are beginning to show wear as are the range and refrigerator but every appliance was in excellent working order. The AC stopped functioning for several hours but was fixed later the same day and a couple of other maintenance issues were addressed promptly. We loved the proximity to beach and pool. The added bonus of complimentary tennis club/gym with outdoor Jr Olympic pool was a lovely surprise. Thanks so much. We had a wonderful time at Silver Sands.

Great place to get away to!

  • 4 of 5

We were so happy with our unit, it was clean, well stocked with dishes and cookware, and nicely furnished. The bed was sooo comfortable and the sheets really soft. We were right on the heated pool and a short walk to the beach, the sunsets were gorgeous. I would love to go back and stay in the same unit again, and plan to next winter!
