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 Florida South Central Gulf Coast

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.

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.

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!

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! Walk to the beach in 2 minutes and come back to a comfortable condo. This is my idea of the perfect getaway.

Really the proximity to the beach, the resort amenities and the condo made this getaway perfect!

Comfortable beach loungers and my own private umbrella. After a long day on the beach and in the water, it was so nice to come back to real furniture (not old rattan) that was comfy and new.

We mostly cooked in the condo or out on the awesome barbeques (!) but also tried the Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant which was really great! (on the water)

We weren't feeling too energetic but we did rent bikes from just up the road at the "Backyard Bike shop" - that was low-key and fun - I'd recommend it. We also did one little adventure by renting kayaks and going on a kayak tour - we used "Almost Heaven Kayak" rentals. These two are good, reliable places in our experience.

The owner was so helpful in initially sorting out our booking and ensuring we were looked after - thanks for your patience Melanie! After that, the staff at this resort was just simply superb.

We're coming back for a good stress-free escape!!

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed yourselves!! And great that you took advantage of the bikes and kayaks - how fun. Next time you might try the Dry Dock Grille (north about 10min drive on the left) - it's on the bay side and really good food - my favorite are the shrimp tacos. And don't forget about the tennis and horseshoe pit! You're welcome back any time!
