We were lucky enough to trade into the 2 bed/2 bath penthouse on the Gulf. The unit was very clean, well stocked with all the essentials, and free wi-fi. The addition of a washer & dryer was an additional plus (There was even a bidet in the master bath!). The staff was very accomdating and eager to please. When there... More

Although our 2 bedroom was too small for more than 4 people, this is such a nice, well kept, well furnished condo/ timeshare that we were very satisfied. Bedding, kitchen appliances, flooring, etc. were recently updated, the heat/ air was quiet and the units are well sound proofed. Our only complaint was a difficult slider to the small deck. And,...

We stayed in a studio (104) for the week. The location can't be beat for beach access and the staff was helpful/friendly. The unit itself needs quite a bit of updating from the furnishings to the appliances. The sleeping options are two single Murphy beds or a pull out sofa. The sofa bed was awful, very thin and not usable.... More

We stayed in Unit #302, and it was absolutely excellent! It was clean, comfy, and pretty. The view is spectacular - right on the beach, looking at the Gulf! Staff are friendly and very helpful. We used the bikes to ride along the island, and the outdoor pool table to play pool seaside. The weather was beautiful and the sunsets... More

We've been coming here for the past seven years and it's always wonderful. The beach is soft white and beautiful. The pool is clean and beautiful. The staff is super helpful and generous. The rooms were recently updated as they do often here. Every year there is something new done to the rooms. The kitchen is functional and lovely. Top... More

we have been vacation here for years and intend to continue doing so. The staff is there to please. The Monday morning breakfast and the Wednesday hot dog lunch are wonderful. The beach is beautiful and there also plenty of beach chairs to use. The units are top notch with granite in the bathrooms and kitchen. Everything is so well... More

We had a two bedroom apartment pool side rather than beach. It was well equipped having everything we needed including an elevator. Sea view through the trees and buildings. Easy access to beach, small pool but ideal for number of units and a tennis court and BBQ area. Staff very friendly and helpful. It was a very relaxing stay and... More

Gulf Tides is small but very clean and located right on the beach. We stepped out the door of our condo and were on the beach. Across the street is pool, tennis court, and more condos. Bicycles available for rides on the key. Publix grocery within walking distance. Will be back!

We stayed in a two bed unit across the road from the beach. Bijou but very clean and comfortable. The management are the same as Longboat Bay Club where we own a timeshare so again the staff are lovely and keeps the place at a very good standard and try to make your stay the best possible - they are...

Perfect Beach!! Great place to relax as the beach is never very crowded. Rooms were very clean and staff was very helpful. My kids loved to play shuffleboard while their dad grilled dinner. Bikes were an awesome amenity since it is only a half mile to Publix and CVS. You can pretty much ride them anywhere. Be sure to drive... More
