very spacious and well equipped apartment just over the road from the wonderful beach . The only drawback is the lack of nearby shops and restaurants, necessitating using the car every time you go out. There was only one couple staying, me and my wife.

The location is absolutely perfectly! It's situated just between downtown Sarasota/St. Armands and Anna Maria Island side of Longboat. Of course just a short trip to the grocery store. It certainly depends on the time of year for traffic! Of course season is a bit heavier than the summer and fall. We look forward to having you back soon!

Overall this is a beautiful place to vacation with private beaches, relaxing things to do or do nothing, and sunsets. Bikes need maintenance and hide-a-bed sofa not comfortable to sit on but it’s all about location and relaxing for us!

Resort OK. Staff not so good or helpful. The male staff at the desk when we checked in acted like we were interfering with his computer activity. He did not give us any type of introduction to the resort, what was available at the resort, what was available close to the

107 has been renovated with the exception of flooring which we are scheduling for this year, however I cannot guarantee it will be done by your arrival. New kitchens/bathrooms and appliances. The living room and master bedroom look over to the Gulf Side and you have a balcony to enjoy the sunrise/sunsets from.

Unfortunately the Town of Longboat Key will not allow us to building or put in anything on the beachside, this includes public restrooms.

"ck what size some are ocean view"
"Cleaning could have been better."
"Everything you need was in the room. "
"There are beachfront rooms available but the ones across the highway where we stayed were only a couple minute walk to the beautiful beach."
"Bed was terrible very noisy when just rolling over in bed and had no back support. They had soap dispensers in bathrooms instead of soaps. it smelt like it should have been in a hospital."
