Clean, safe, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Christopher and Sophie's condo at the Sea Horse. After a group of somewhat rowdy holiday guests left and Hurricane Hermine subsided, the resort and the ocean settled down into their naturally quiet states. The best part of our stay was being able to wander from ocean to pool to condo without much effort. We recommend bringing extra towels for the beach. Hotel staff has limited hours but are really helpful when they're there. Christopher's quick and clear communication made us feel super welcome.

Owner's Response: Dear Jane, Thank you for your insightful and detailed description of your stay with us on Longboat Key, much appreciated. We look forward to meeting you personally the next time you will be in the area, and hopefully will stay with us again, perhaps in one of our other apartments. Happy travels and adventures. Best Regards, Sophie and Christopher

Stillwater, ok

Not nearly as quiet and peaceful as hoped!

  • 2 of 5

The booking process was easy. The condo itself was clean and well furnished. Otherwise, we would have given this condo a rating of poor. We booked the same week as a family reunion with some pretty rude individuals. We found out from our neighbors that the complex had rented 16 condos to this family group. They were rude and noisy until all hours of the night. The condo management leave the resort at 5pm. so none of the pool rules were enforced even though the pool is supposed to close at 9pm. The party went with loud music and screaming children until early in the morning hours for more than one night. This condo is directly above the pool. Please keep this in mind if you want to stay in a quiet place for your vacation. We read the reviews and picked this place based on those. However, we will not be returning to this property for our next year's vacation!

Owner's Response: You cannot please everyone, but clearly everyone is also entitled to their opinion. A guest can stay at the most expensive, luxurious resort, pay top dollar, and still come across a situation such as this one, that an owner cannot control, a large party that was booked by the resort management company. There are many units in this resort, and no one else gave this type of complaint, and paid substantially more for their stay. Again, there were no other complaints given to the resort in reference to this incident/party….if in fact there was so much noise that it was intolerable for the guests, they should have called the police to address.

Very relaxing mini-vacation by the beach

  • 5 of 5

The booking process went very smoothly. This is a small but very nice unit, perfect size for a couple staying for a few days. This is on a very quiet part of Longboat Key, and the beach directly in front of the condo never got crowded, which is exactly what we were looking for. We spent most of our time either on the beach or on our balcony, reading and listening to the crashing waves. St. Armands Circle is about a 10 minute drive away and has many shops and restaurants, but we ate most of our meals on our balcony. There is a great grocery store just 5 minutes away. I highly recommend this condo for a relaxing break.

Great views, beautiful condo and excellent service!

  • 5 of 5

Contacted the owner directly who was very accommodating and easy to work with. Everything that was discussed was delivered and better! The condo was fully equipped and we were impressed with the beautiful new furnishings and granite kitchen/stainless steel appliances.

Great views from the balcony and watching the unobstructed sunsets was breathtaking. We will definitely be back again, thanks for making our vacation absolutely perfect!
