Summer fun

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The condo was the perfect size for two people. Having coffee outside on the canal was something we looked forward to each morning. The location was great. Quiet and close to everything. Martha was delightful to deal with.

Fabulous time and great location

  • 5 of 5

What a great little cottage to enjoy our family vacation. We had never stayed in Longboat Key but found it the best place to get away but was convenient to other popular restaurants and attractions. We loved the private beach and being on the canal was convenient to kayak. We brought 2 but there were also two with the rental. The street was quiet and neighbors were friendly. Martha greeted us and showed us around. It truly was a fun and relaxing vacation. We will definitely be back!!

We really enjoyed our stay. Although the unit needs some upgrading, it was fully equipped and comfortable. Martha, our host was just excellent in all communications.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I were in town for a wedding and we were lucky enough to come across this location. Martha was wonderful to deal with and was very informative and helpful about everything in the area. Highly recommended and I would very much like to stay there again.

Terrific value, lovely and comfortable condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a long weekend at this unit and it was a great experience. The condo is nicely furnished and perfectly located for a Longboat Key vacation. We enjoyed the easy kayak access to Sarasota Bay and the dining options available at Harry's (an easy walking distance). The beach access is convenient and the owner provides beach chairs and an umbrella so no need to pack these essentials. We enjoyed quiet meals after sunset on the back deck by candlelight and stars--divine! We hope to return for another visit next year (or sooner!).
