Just Idyllic!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place, Nikki was a fantastic host.

Travelling from the UK, I was slightly worried about the confirmation and payment side (didn't want to turn up and not have somewhere to stay!) Nikki was brilliant on that front and totally reliable.

We felt we could trust her with the reservations and payment. We just gave a security deposit on my credit card and then paid cash when we got there so we saved a lot of money on the reservation. This made the condo very reasonable for a 2 bedroom with water views and beach access.

Nikki provides all the things that you would want, beach towels, chairs, parasols and the condo is so clean and cosy with all the "mod cons" you need with WIFI and the TV. My team could even get to watch Leicester City play Madrid !!

We would walk along the beach in the evenings and even saw dolphins and then go for some lovely meals, it was absolutely the rest we needed after 9 days in Orlando. We even said to the kids did they want to go back to the parks before we flew home, or stay on the beach and they chose the condo so high praise.

I would absolutely recommend Nikki and the condo.

Great Location, Great access to almost a private beach, I loved it!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to book a place in Anna Maria Island since we were a party to a family reunion but I could not get anything close to the beach over there. However, when I compare the two different areas, I am glad I didn’t since Longboat key is a much better location and it is much more lay back as I wanted it.

Regarding this unit, I cannot complain about the one flight of stairs I had to climb to get to this good sized condo (almost on the beach) because then, I would not have had the wonderful view to the beach I had from its spacious screened balcony and from the living area. Sunsets I missed but a few, a couple of minutes and you are swimming or relaxing on the almost white powder-like sandy beach. My kids and I saw a couple of manatees right while we were swimming on the beach, a rare encounter even for me that I live close to the water near Miami Beach. We also saw playful dolphins almost every day and my eight year old and I saw little turtles hatching one evening as we were coming back from the neighbors; the downsize is that they take forever to get to the beach and we were bitten terribly by the no-see ums or jejenes (wear insect repellent or long pants since they tend to bite from the knee high down)

Nikki welcomed us warmly and made us feel like su casa was mi casa. All we ever needed for this beach vacation she had it there at the condo and she even helped us with some special request I had. She was very flexible and accommodating. We liked it there so much we ended up staying to extra nights and instead we shortened our visit to Orlando with the kids…. What else can I say…. I loved it and I am going back again pretty soon.

Great find, definitely returning!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time staying in a place other than a hotel. We were truly happy with Nikki and the location. She had the closets stocked with extra towels, beach toys, etc., which we didn't expect. We will definitely be returning.

Just what we needed!

  • 4 of 5

We needed a "spillover" place to stay due to having other family members staying nearby in a "main" condo, and this was just the ticket! Nikki was a pleasure to work with and was very helpful with information. Publix was so convenient, a very quick and easy walk away. The unit was super clean and comfy, and even included some festive holiday lights. Kitchen was very well equipped, though we didn't need to cook there. Nice private beach directly across from the unit. If you're looking for an affordable, clean place to stay on LBK, and don't need a pool, hot tub, etc., you want to check Nikki's place out.

Quiet- clean- pet friendly getaway! WONDERFUL!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to get away from the crowded beach and the tourist, this is the place for you! We had a wonderful stay. Everything that you need is there, beach chairs, beach towels... You've got to cross a fairly busy road to get to the beach, but it's not bad. Our longest wait was maybe 4 minutes, really not bad! In the evening, not a wait at all. The views are marvelous!!!! The actual apartment is older, but VERY clean. Everything that is needed is there. Except if you're coffee drinkers like my husband and I are, bring your larger coffee pot, we went and bought a larger one, a small 4 cup was NOT going to handle our coffee needs. There is a Publix within walking distance. A lovely shopping area VERY close. Nightlife if you want it close if you want that as well. Just perfect for us. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this home away. Affordable, comfortable, pet friendly, perfect!
