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

We have been staying at Sun'n Sea since 1994 and have never been disappointed. Every unit we have stayed in has been well maintained and very clean. 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

I was five years old in 1961, and have many kodak slides of a Florida trip with my parents. We did stay in Longboat Key. I have pictures of blue cottages right on the beach. The beach pictures look very private, we seem to be the only people around. Naturally, coming from Indiana in February, it was summer for us.... More

I am a homesick native Floridian who looks forward to my annual week at Sun 'n' Sea. The friendly managers greet me by name like a long, lost friend; the 'cabins' are spotless, comfortable and equip my every need; and the location...oh my...the sparkling Gulf, white sand and spectacular sunsets toasted each night with your fellow travelers...

I am so surprised to see a negative review of this facility. My family has been staying here for the past 24 years. Each year we have added another weekend, another week or another holiday. We are thrilled to come back and see others who, like us, return again and again. We have watched each others families grow and multiply.... More
