About Owner/property Manager

We live in Toronto, Ontario (Canada) and both teach psychology at Seneca College. We are parents to two grown sons and one fabulous grandkid.

Owner/property Manager purchased this condo in 2013

Why Owner/property Manager chose Longboat Key

We bought UNIT D-12 at Casa Del Mar after doing extensive research into the area and resort accommodations. We instantly fell in love with the vibe of this place and the staff who are absolutely incredible. We like a vacation spot to be relaxed and include lots of comforts of home! And who can resist the miles of beach!! Our wandering souls are happy!

What makes this condo unique

Unique indeed!

Private beach access is incredible. No more fighting for lounge chairs! The gulf is free of loud jet skis and powerboats - so lovely.

This unit in the resort is away from the pool area so when you need quiet, you've got it! Yet literally steps away from the action too.

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful spot, will definitely visit again and again. The apartment is spacious and clean, with everything you need to enjoy your year-round summer vacation. Walking from the front door, it is less than a minute before your toes touch the ocean. The beach is pristine, you will call this your oasis for years to come!

Owner's Response: Thank you Jen! I too love that we don't have to go far to get to the beach! I timed it once at 1.3 minutes....with a cocktail in my hand! You're welcome back any time for sure. A great way to help get through the cold northern winters.

Fantastic Family Vacation--Great Overall Experience !

  • 5 of 5

WOW!!! My family absolutely loved this vacation! The condo was as advertised (clean, well-equipped, and close walk to pool/beach). The only thing missing was a beverage cooler to use by the pool/beach--so I left one for the next group. The grounds are well-maintained and full of lush tropical plants & crawling things (my kids loved the little geckos)! The BBQ area is a perfect place to fix a meal, have a drink, and mingle with other families. I would have grilled EVERY night, but the wife had other ideas. Staff is outstanding. Very friendly, accommodating, and full of great local recommendations. Really enjoyed our daily conversations with one member of the security staff (can't recall his name, but you'll know him by the British accent & smile).

Pool & beach area are perfect. You can walk the beaches for hours in either direction, or sit in a chair and watch the dolphins swimming offshore (witnessed nearly every day). Highly recommend renting a beach umbrella for the duration. Location is awesome--took short trips to Anna Marie Island, Bradenton Beach, St. Armands Circle, and Siesta Key. You can't beat the scenic drives!

I could go on all day about this place---can't wait to return!!! Thanks for allowing us the opportunity to experience Casa Del Mar!! Hated to return home.

Owner's Response: Dave! I'm so glad you enjoyed Casa! What's not to love. We love it too. Heading for 2 weeks in August. Grilling time for sure!! Come back again any time! Cheers, Melanie and Michael

Great stay! Wouldn't change a thing!

  • 5 of 5

I am a little late writing this, but better late than never, right? We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa del Mar! The condo was well-equipped, very comfortably furnished, and CLEAN.

I e-mailed with the property owner prior to making our reservation and had a pleasant exchange with her.

It was a short walk to the beach, and we appreciated having the provided lounge chairs to use on the beach.

I had trouble connecting to the wifi, but a quick call to the office fixed my problem. The man that answered (can't remember his name...) was friendly and helpful and had me online in no time.

I would highly recommend this condo! It was our first trip to Longboat Key, and we will be back!

Wonderful stay at a fantastic condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at Casa Del Mar. The gardens, beach, pool, grill area, and sports court suited our needs to a tee! We had 3 busy teens in our party and they found plenty to do in and around the area. The condo is nice and modern and was very comfortable. We will definitely return to Casa Del Mar! Wonderful memories made here! Thanks, Melanie!!

Lovely Sun & Sand Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

The proximity to the beach and poolside were terrific. Everything we wanted for a relaxing vacation. Nice, quiet evenings, beautiful sunsets, long stretch of clean beach to stroll, good restaurants in the area and when we stayed in we had everything we needed for preparing a nice meal. We would highly recommend this unit for a vacation spot - we'll be back!
