My wife and I were looking for a nice getaway with our children and came across what looked to be a great place on VRBO. Much to our delight, the actual accommodations far exceeded our expectations. This home was very welcoming, very clean and a true turn key vacation home. We loved everything about it. Location was very convenient to a beautiful beach and we loved that we could launch the kayaks provided right from the dock in the back yard. i highly recommend this property and guarantee you will not be disappointed. My family and I can't wait to go back.
My wife and I, along with another couple, came to the house with our boat. The house is nicely appointed, and we couldn't have asked for much more with regard to where we could store our boat...right in the canal at the back of the house. We had a great time being able to access the Sarasota Bay area, and it was nice to not have to launch our boat every day. We also liked having two great restaurants within walking distance to the house.
The owners worked great with us during the planning stages, and we were able to plan our vacation around various schedules.
We will be back to this property given the wonderful nature of the house and the ability to have a great time and use our boat. I know the owners don't have a problem with pets, unfortunately, we couldn't have four people in a truck along with two dogs. Maybe next time we will take two cars and have our pets along as well. Nothing extra for having them enjoy a vacation with us at this property.
We really enjoyed our stay at this home. Everything was just as advertised. There were plenty of amenities and supplies. The neighborhood was quiet and just a short walk to the beautiful beach at a public access point. The open layout of the kitchen/dining/family room is ideal for a family to spend time together on vacation.
Great house just a short walk to the beach, located in a quiet neighborhood. The house is spacious, nicely decorated and well stocked with cookware, linens, beach chairs, etc. The pictures don't do it justice. The deck has plenty of privacy and a great place to relax with the landscaped yard and boat canal. The owner was easy to work with and helpful. This was a definite find for a Longboat Key vacation. We look forward to a return visit to this wonderful home in the near future.
After reading a number of reviews of other Longboat properties, we chose this due to other positive reviews. Thank goodness. It was clear to see that there were a number of 'other' rentals that were not up to par. Our rental was better than the reviews! The house was immaculate...no cleaning when we got there! the furnishings were recent and nice: in other words not leftover furniture cast out to the renters. This is a home!! Kayaks, Bikes, lots of fridge and freezer space for food and of course BAIT!
If you enjoy fishing, they make it easy: dock, fillet table, bait freezer, rod racks, etc. One block to the beach and a couple of blocks to the bay allowed for amazing shelling, fishing, and overall enjoyment. We brought our two labs, and they loved (trying) chasing the numerous peacocks that live around the neighborhood. Not only would I recommend this house to anyone I know, I will certainly be returning in the near future!! Thanks guys!!!
This property has everything you could ask for in a vacation home. It was very spacious, clean and located in a peaceful neighborhood blocks from the beach. The back deck was well equipped with plently of grills and it was perfect for my family gatherings. The owners of the property were very sweet and prompt to reply to any of my questions. I'm so glad I chose to stay here for my wedding weekend.
Come fishing, sight seeing,shelling, shopping, water sports and about anything else you can think of that the gulf coast of Florida offers. Rent a boat from Cannons Marina and dock behind your house. Walk a few blocks to Moores Stone Crabs and MarVista for indoor and bayveiw outdoor dining. Shoppers take a day to drive 15 min down the gulf to St.Armiands Cirlce. I promise it is worth it. I like to eat at the Columbian and order house Sangria and 1905 salad for sure.
