Classy, comfortable, and top quality

by Karen B.

This is my 4th time staying at this property, and I love it! Spacious and comfortable with a view that cannot be surpassed, this is my favorite place to be when visiting Longboat Key. It’s always spotless upon arrival; the furnishings and appliances are classy, comfortable, and top quality. We spent most days enjoying our coffee and meals sitting outside on the balcony, just enjoying the sounds of the water and Zen views of the sand and surf! Will be back every year, as long as this place is here and available!

Thank you so much for your kind comments!  The owner will greatly appreciate knowing you enjoy his condo.

Location was spot on

by Kimberly

Check-in process was easy once we read the email but still a bit of a hassle since the office is offsite. The resort was a bit noisey for our liking, lots of yard maintenance happening right at 8am! Location was spot on and unit was very clean. Thank you

Excellent location and well apppointed

by Cathy P.

Excellent location and the unit was very well appointed. Steps to the beautiful and peaceful beach and only a short drive to all the shops and restaurants at St Armand’s Circle. The more time we spent here, the more we know we’ll be back soon! Thanks you Sue and Dallas for all the great info about the area.

Hi Cathy,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience.  Delighted to see you enjoyed your stay and that all worked out for you.  Really appreciate you mentioning our staff and their helpfulness.  

Look forward to welcoming you back in the future!

Best location on Longboat Key!

by Roberta P.

We loved our place except for the TV. Perfect for 2 people, magnificent views of palms, beach, water and sunsets- what more could we want?! Also the best location anyone could have on Longboat! All the staff that we would see would greet us and seemed to be happy to have us there! I believe the restaurants, etc. would do very well accepting renters for their businesses but we never had a problem finding great places to eat for sure . Their loss!!! We truly enjoyed every minute of our stay..thank you…

Well layed out.

by Karen B.

The owner really understands how to design a renter-friendly environment! The sofa bed is superior to any we've used before. Appreciated the labeling of lights and controls, simple decor, and spot-on furnishings.

Jeff, especially, went to great lengths to correct the issues we had with the first unit, and allow us to move to the second unit with no additional penalty. Was very understanding with my timing/key issues at the end

Well furnished.

by James S.

Beautiful private beach next to inlet and flocks of birds. The rental does NOT include access to club golf, tennis, resteraunts. Umbrellas are an extra $15/day. The water is clear almost no waves. (We did start our visit during a red tide with some smell and a couple dead fish) Otherwise the white sand was great with a tractor fluffing up at least once a week. There are small shells to collect. The pool and hot tub were also great. Minor issues we had sugar ants in the room, we are responsible for taking care of garbage but dumpster at another building. The place is very well furnished and neighbors were few. On Saturday evening and Sunday night weddings were seen from balcony. The later one ended at 11:00 pm. Location to other activities is good.

Appreciate the great feedback and have addressed the sugar ants

CLEAN and inviting

by Teresa H.

The view from this balcony is everything! It couldn't be any better! The condo was beautiful… CLEAN, and inviting. It was a very spacious, cozy, comfortable place to be. The kitchen was fully stocked and everything was neat and organized. If I had something negative to say, it would probably be the tub/shower situation. The shower is behind a glass wall that doesn't move, so you have to take the shower head down before adjusting your water temp… otherwise you get soaked. But that's it! The grounds were beautiful, the Security guards were so very nice and ensured we knew where to go. I will definitely stay at this property again.

Gorgeous

by Christopher

Gorgeous, Seriously, you could not expect nor ask for anything more. Beautiful scenery, VERY well maintained and appointed unit (1205). Further, on the first night of my stay, I accidentally locked myself out of the unit and Maureen from FVC came to my rescue in the middle of the night. Thank you so much.
