We are making Sun 'n' Sea a yearly tradition! Quiet, relaxing, perfect for kids or couples. The staff was FANTASTIC and the rooms were SUPER clean! Close to St.Armands Circle for shopping and dining. Full kitchen was great, we cooked all of our meals. They have thought of everything! The loaf of bread, milk and butter was a cute touch.... More

My first time at this wonderful place! Jim & Cindy provided a warm welcome from day one! The pristine grounds to the very clean & inviting cottage to the private beach...I sing the praises of the management for making my stay enjoyable. Cindy & Jim go out of their way to make sure everyone feels like family. Got a lumpy... More

Been going for 20 years Cindy and Jim are great. Clean,comfortable, and not over priced. Would recommend to most anyone. Plenty of restaurants close by and a grocery store a few miles away. Love this place !!!!!!

We had just finishing working an 8 month contract and were booked into the Hilton next store for free with a voucher but that property needs a face lifting badly!.... therefore we looked across the parking lot and by chance walked over and met a wonderful couple from Ohio operating it. We were given a key to have a look... More

Longboat key is one of the nicest places I have ever been to. The sun n sea resort offers private cottages right on the beach. No streets to cross to get to the beach. Individual car ports attached to your own personal cottage. The cottages come equipped with full kitchens, wifi, foldout sofa sleepers and much more. A great place... More

First of all I want to say this place is not for everyone. It is nothing fancy, no pool or a lot of the other amenities people want. It is a comfortable place where you can relax, enjoy life and feel safe. This was our ninth year staying at Sun 'n Sea. We can't wait to go back each year.... More

If you are looking for a great location that is peaceful and quiet this is the place to stay. The present management is always friendly and making sure you have everything needed during... More

Eighteen members of our family (ages 2-80) rented several cottages at Sun 'n Sea for a family gathering. It was perfect! The cottages are comfortable but not fancy; the kitchens have everything you need, grocery stores are close by and best of all, you're right on the beach. There are restaurants within a 10-15 minutes drive, and Sarasota is about... More

We spent a week in a one bedroom cottage at Sun and Sea. You cannot beat the location or the setting. It is located mid island and situated right on the beach. It is peaceful, and the cottages are a good distance apart. The managers are friendly and helpful with tips for dining etc. The cottages are clean and contain... More
