Great property in great location
A very warm welcome by the property manager, John, who could not have been more helpful. The house was exactly as advertised, amenities abound, and the attention to detail was superb.
Glad to have the security of an alarm to put on at night and while away from the house. Remember to turn it off before you open the door to the terrace from the master bedroom (sorry John)!
The beach is mere minutes away on foot, the communal pool area is very well equipped and was barely used by the neighboring guests for the duration of our stay.
Spoiled for choice as far as restaurants go on LBK as well as further down the coast at St Armands Circle. Mar Vista in particular is excellent both in terms of service, and food quality and is the nearest restaurant to the house (we walked one night but wouldn't recommend it as there are no street lights so had to use a flashlight app on our phones to find our way home...).
Blue Dolphin cafe is a must for breakfast even though they no longer have their famous Red Savina hot sauce available.
Our stay was exactly what we wanted - a week of pure relaxation. We'll definitely be back next year.
Our family of 4 recently stayed at Conrad for two weeks over Christmas and New Years 2017. It was fabulous. The long beach was basically 'ours' with very few people on it; providing endless walks looking for sand dollars or sightings of dolphins. Perfect white sand, warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico beckoned every day. We spent every evening watching the sunsets. We also enjoyed the heated pool behind the house. The house was spacious and comfortable with lots of private places to stretch out. The ping pong table provided competitive entertainment. The gourmet kitchen was a delight to cook in. We were sad to leave.
It's a special place.
Elegantly appointed Conrad Cabana.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the elegantly appointed Conrad Cabana. The home features an interesting collection of art. The home is a short walk from the beautiful beach at Longboat Key and has all of the amenities that a family would need for a stay at the beach.
We had a very pleasant stay at Conrad cabana

The deposit has been returned by post , an American bank check , not a bank transfer, which is rather expensive and not very cost effective to cash in UK.
It is a very nice house and Dwayne the concierge is very helpful and punctual .
Would recommend this property for family or friends visiting Longboat Key. The home was well appointed, clean and the furnishings quite lovely. The owner and manager provided excellent customer service to my family. Longboat Key and Anna Maria Island are great tourist destinations with restaurants, activities or attractions either a car or bike ride away. The Gulf of Mexico and pool are steps from the front door.
Quiet and relaxing
My girlfriends and i just returned from a fabulous week at Conrad Cabana. What a gorgeous house....top quality all the way. The furnishings, artwork, bed and bathrooms - all exceptional. As described, the pool was lovely and we only saw one person using it. The beach was quiet and large and a very short walk away. Lots of beach supplies, too. Restaurants are plentiful and varied and St. Armonds has great shopping. This is our third time staying on Longboat Key and Conrad Cabana was certainly the most wonderful! (Also, the fruit and flowers were greatly appreciated!)
Stretching 11 miles between the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay, Longboat Key offers an idyllic beach and bay front setting. Average year round 75 Fahrenheit/24 Celsius degree temperatures make this island conducive to swimming, tennis, golf, fishing, and boating. The island is surrounded by 7 first-class golf courses and boasts many public as well as private tennis facilities.
Cannons Marina, just down the road from North Shore Cabana, rents party boats and fishing boats plus water ski and tubing equipment. There are numerous locations for Jet Ski rentals and parasailing for those who want to 'rise to the heavens.'
Charter a boat with or without a captain and explore the area's many bays and backwaters, take to the ocean for deep sea fishing, scuba diving, and snorkeling.
