All of the golf courses located on Longboat Key are private, however nearby Sarasota and Bradenton areas offer top-rated golf courses a short drive off the island.
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!

What a wonderful place! Hope to be able to stay here again. Staff is so helpful and friendly.
We loved our stay! We will be coming back!
Beautiful setting. Clean and well equipped. We had an issue with the tv and wifi but when I made them aware of it, they responded quickly and fixed the issues. Everyone we dealt with were very friendly and helpful.
Peaceful and beautiful view
The condo was very clean and the perfect size for us. We loved our view, especially.
Some things we noticed that might improve a guest's stay:
1) A ceiling fan and better lighting in the bedroom would have been nice
2) The mattress was VERY hard, so we didn't really get good sleep
3) When the towels/sheets were changed, we didn't get more toilet paper
4) When someone cleaned up the empty beer and water bottles on the kitchen counter, they also threw out a paper towel that held several shark teeth on it -- these were not small teeth -- it was obvious what they were and that we were saving them, along with a couple dozen shells and sand dollars
5) Brighter lighting in the bathroom would be great
The beach access and numerous lounge chairs to choose from was WONDERFUL!
We hope to come back to Silver Sands and enjoy the property and beautiful beach again in years to come!!! Thank you for a great vacation!
