Longboat Key Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible Bed, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

The Turtle Crawl Inn encompass all that is hallmark to a Gulf front vacation. Many others on the island claim to be Gulf front, but actually include a view only from a certain vantage point. At the Towers, our unit includes a private patio that overlooks the pristine Longboat Key beaches - the perfect place for you and your morning brew to soak in the salty air. Our tall building sits five-stories high, giving our guests amazing sunsets from their own private condominium with many recent upgrades in a hotel-styled environment.

Why Frank Adashun chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

I have lived and traveled the entire state of Florida for the past 20 years and found Longboat Key to be the perfect combination of all things desirable! This property is located in a quiet, natural setting, but close to shopping, airports, fine dining, fishing, diving and cultural centers.

What makes this condo unique

Outstanding view and sounds of the Gulf, corner unit offering more privacy, well-run and efficient on site condo management

Beautiful view, nice beach location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this unit in Oct 2015. The unit had everything we needed for a great stay including sand and sun! It is located on a wonderful beach area with stunning sunsets every evening right from the balcony. The furnishings are a bit dated and nothing is in walking distance, but overall it is a nice unit for a casual beach vacation.

Idyllic week in early March

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Longboat Key. We were very familiar with both Palm Beach and Miami, but not with the other coast of Florida. It's very easy to get around here, and Sarasota with all its restaurants and shopping is very nearby. The weather was perfect, barely a cloud in the sky and not one drop of rain for 7 days! The apartment was perfect for us. Plainly furnished, but very clean, and with everything you needed. Most exceptional was the view! The large deck combined with the fact that it's a corner unit on the top floor enables you to see for miles up and down the beach. And with the patio door open (no insects here, somehow!) you could hear the waves crashing all day long. The beach is just inches away. The water was delicious for someone like me who likes to swim. My only complaint about Turtle Crawl is that the pool is really too small to swim laps. But usually I was the only person in it.

We would definitely return.

Best Sunsets Ever.

  • 5 of 5

Great 5th floor ocean front condo. Fabulous view, amazing sunsets. Located mid island. One way to Anna Maria Island and the other way to St Armand's circle. Being bike riders we took advantage of some great riding trails. For change of scenery for biking did one day riding the Venetian Waterway Trail and another riding around Siesta Key. October is a great time to visit before the snowbirds start to arrive. One bedroom condo was perfect for two people to be able to spread out comfortably. Enjoyed every evening sitting listening to the sound off the ocean and watching the sunsets from the balcony.

A Beach Walker's Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our second time at Turtle Crawl - first time in this unit. These are not high end, but very comfortable and clean, with a spectacular view. The balcony is a great place for morning coffee and sunset drinks. The sofa couch mattress was too bare to use, but it is being replaced. The bathroom has been upgraded and has lots of storage.

This Inn has cut away all the grasses that grow along the beach - which leaves a beautiful, spacious area to sunbathe, and it's never crowded. Always lots of lounge chairs available. The grounds are well kept - walkway is lovely. Angel and the staff are very friendly and helpful - anything you need, they've got - linens, beach umbrellas, and even a small fridge with condiments if you are caught short. Good restaurants abound. Lots of info and pamphlets in the unit. The Blue Dolphin is the place for breakfast - busy, but line-ups seem to move quikly. In the same mall is The Lazy Lobster - high end with a beautiful patio. Try eating at the Happy Hour to save some dollars. Great food - the lobster macaroni and cheese is a favorite. The Ringling Museum/Estate is a must - for all ages. Plan lots of time there. Many different buildings with a shuttle service, and restaurant if you need a break. We learned to stay clear of Anna Maria Island - esp. on weekends - slow,bumper to bumper traffic, but a quaint, happening place if you're very patient.

The owner of this unit is very congenial and responsive to e-mails. We're looking forward to returning next year.
