This unit is managed by Resort Vacation Accommodations (RVA). It would be a great unit if it was properly maintained. Pros: 1) beautiful unit with a porch on the canal; we saw manatees in the canal, it was very nice 2) property is nice and you feel on vacation 3) unit is spacious with a bedroom and a big living...

We were dissapointed to hear of this guests recent experience at Cabana Beach Club. A member of our management team is working with the new owner of this unit to make some upgraded changes, however a thorough walk thru of the unit found the front patio to be in a clean condition and several of the items mentioned functioning fine....

This is the worst vacation experience ever! Unit #5 was filthy! Had to use a "Mr Clean Eraser" to get dirt off the toilet seat and mold on shower curtain was disgusting! There was grape jelly on the top 2 plates in the cabinet! Yes, I have pictures and I showed them to Jeff at RVA!

We were disappointed to hear of this recent guests stay at Cabana Beach Club. Our check-in policy is advertised as 4 PM, and our records show this guest was checked in at 4:13 PM. Although this guest booked their stay through Expedia, a typical hotel service provider, the property is listed as a condominium under a hotel category with the... More

Managed by RVA/Resort Vacation Accommodations on Longboat Key, the Cabana Beach Club is a fairly affordable but also upscale (compared to a typical motel) location on the northern end of LBK. It has units on both the ocean side and canal side of Gulf of Mexico drive. The units on the canal side, where we always stay, afford the vacationer... More

For a girl's long weekend, we stayed at Cabana Beach Club (Thanks VRBO!!). The condo was fantastic. It looked newly remodeled, the kitchen and appliances were in great shape. We were just a few miles from St. Armand shopping. The beach was quiet and we felt like we had an island to ourselves. The condo was clean, immaculate, with great... More

Unit 7 is very spacious, clean and quiet. We have a view on the pool and the Gulf of Mexico,... More

For a family of 4 (with 2 school-age kids), this was an ideal spot. The unit is small, but nicely appointed with cheery colors (as shown in RVA photos online) and must have all been remodeled recently. It is directly in front of the pool (which seemed heated and was very well maintained, very clean, and with just a slight... More

Girls vacation and our first visit to Cabana and we stayed in Unit 4. Love the beach view even from indoors and the decor and layout was pleasant and roomy for what little time we spent indoors. Company did respond to any concerns and aimed to please. Dolphins were playing right off the beach three out of five mornings! King... More

Our one week stay at the Cabana Beach Resort on Longboat Key was pleasant enough and would have been quite better than that had it not been for the awful sleeping conditions. Unit 5 is small and unit 5 B is larger. We had expected that. They are both very close to the pool. We had expected that. They both... More

Overall we were satisfied with Cabana Beach Club and Resort Quest but there were some minor issues which will be outlined below. When we first walked into unit 12 we were very happy with what we saw.
