We stayed at the Beachcomber with family. We were in a 1 bedroom which was nice but next time we will opt for the 2 bedroom. This place is very clean. Right on the beach. We hope to have another trip and stay here again.

My three girlfriends and I just returned from a week at the Beachcomber. Very nice location, very nice condo and very nice people. Guess that says it all. And if we do return, we would definitely stay at the Beachcomber. #405 is our Condo. However, with four people, next time it will be a two bedroom and 2 bath, for... More

We have been coming to the Beachcomber for 20 years. We have stayed in several different units over the years and in the last 10 years we have settled ourselves in 304. 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, full kitchen, dining room and living room, facing west over the Gulf of Mexico. We have seen many changes over the years and the... More

I just spent a week in Unit 404 with three friends. It was a lovely condo, beautifully decorated and very clean. We hated to leave. The Beachcomber is situated on Longboat Key centrally located to Sarasota or Anna Marie Island. It is right on the beach on the Gulf of Mexico and has a really nice pool area. The staff... More

We stayed in 204 and are extremely disappointed. The trim is rusted and bathroom floor is stained with what looks like rust. The kitchen ceiling is also rusted. The dvd player, lights in small room, and half of the outlets dont work. The master bed is hard as a rock!!!!!! Drain in tub does work well or the bathroom sink.... More

We stayed in Unit 605. It is nicely decorated and very comfortable. Great bed! Great value too! The veranda has a nice view of the island and is a great place to sit out and eat breakfast or relax in the evening. What I love about the Beachcomber is that it is right on the beach! I walk out the... More

So pleasantly surprised, our unit,504 was even nicer than the photos online. We can't say enough about the cleanliness, unit amenities ,condo layout and OH, that view! Expansive Sliding doors from both living room and bedroom onto a large balcony was the highlight for us. We didnt miss one spectacular sunset and what can be better than waking to the... More

What a fabulous surprise when we arrived at The Beachcomber. It is so clean and well maintained!!! There is plenty of parking and a fabulous pool right on thee miles of awesome sandy beach. If you want peaceful, but close to all the best restaurants and shopping, this is it. They have two elevators for a quick trip up to... More

We stayed in unit 605 and could not be happier! The unit has nice furnishings and everything you need. This condo was super clean and being on the 6th floor offered a nice view of the island and bay. The building is right on the beach! You literally walk out the door and you are at the pool and beach.... More

We stayed at the Beachcomber at the beginning of June 2012. The complex was beautiful and our one bedroom condo was very nice, spacious, and had everything we needed. As for the last posting under “bad bathrooms”, I do not agree with this review. I saw Beachcomber website pictures for 20+ units before I booked and most condos showed bathroom... More
