Great for a quiet get away. Not so great for families with children. My kids were excited the first few days and then became bored as there is not much for children to do other then swim at the beach or pool. The island/area itself seems to be catered to more of an elderly and/or upscale type. It was wonderful... More

I have stayed at Sea Club I several times in the last seven or so years. Sometimes I've brought my elderly mom to stay and last spring visited with my husband. Each visit has been very special and always leaves me waiting to return. I have so many special memories here. I know a lot about Long Boat Key and... More

If you want a place that is old Florida, serene, delightful, then this is the place for you. We just spent a week here and it was wonderful. The units are clean, comfortable, and well furnished. The pool is heated and the beach is practically at your back door. The property managers Chris and Bill live on site and are... More

My son got married on the beach near Sea Club. Several of the wedding party stayed there, including my and my husbands elderly parents as well as a family with children and a friend and her husband who celebrated their honeymoon. Chris, Bill and Lisa were wonderful to work with. The beds were so comfortable, that a few guests asked... More

Units are amazingly clean and well furnished. Private beach area. Lawn chairs are provided. Pool is well maintained. Owners also live on the grounds which is helpful. Overall this is family friendly environment. The only issue we encountered during our stay was since the pool is centrally located and in close proximity to all units and the office, management did... More

ParadiseLBK, Manager at Sea Club 1, responded to this review

The pool is centrally located and we do enjoy the children playing and having fun. The only response by management, was to the 'screaming' that was extremely loud and was disruptive to the other guests on the property. The child was actually being antagonized by one of the other siblings, which typically can be the case. Management will always welcome... More

We went here to celebrate my birthday on the 10th of September. We arrived on the 9th and left on the 11th. The room was beautiful (we had no. 47) with the most wonderful view of the Gulf from the room and balcony. Chris and Bill, the managers, were so accomodating and nice. They helped make our stay the absolute... More

I highly recommend Sea Club 1!! It has a quaint, throw-back feel to old Florida vacationing days. Very reasonably priced. There’s flexibility in length of stay too (most places only offer weekly/monthly) which was nice for me since I was only staying a few days. It’s a relaxing and peaceful place to stay for anyone. I was there by myself... More

This location is a throwback to what Longboat Key was in the 70's. Clean, quaint and well appointed, but no real luxuries. We had the studio and it was perfect for two. The beach is perfect for long walks.

We were so lucky to find this place for our family getaway! As a Florida Native and beach lover, my girls and I have traveled the state for over 25 years. We have stayed everywhere from Panama City to Miami. I have searched forever to find an affordable location in Longboat Key on the world's most beautiful beach. I found... More
