We recently stayed for 3 days at The Beach with our 2 kids. The place is really peaceful, with a small pool, few rooms, and a private entrance to the beach. The view from our room was gorgeous! They offer free umbrellas and beach chairs (you only have to bring them back once you finish using them). For a couple... More

Our 2nd time at this small condo complex. We stayed here 2 years ago with a groupon and loved the beach here. We rented a 2 bed/2bath condo for 5 nights. The condo was in a quiet area with almost no one on the beach. Beach chairs and umbrellas were available everyday. Housekeeping freshened our room everyday. We went to... More

This is our 4th stay at "the beach". Love the fact that we don't have to eat every meal in a restaurant. While we did notice some "deferred maintenance" items, it is not enough to keep us from coming back. We have met many folks that come back year after year. For the money it is the best spot on...

Just returned here from a 6 night stay in #227 at The Beach at LBK. This was our first time to LBK and we absolutely loved it. The Beach is a beautifully maintained property with gardens and a pool, it also provides beach umbrellas and chairs for all guests. There is a private beach access so your beach area is... More

Had to wait for someone to be able to check in. Never was able to check out so just left keys. Murphy bed & sofa bed were beyond uncomfortable & no room to walk in room with both out. No coffee refill for 2nd day. NEVER STAYING HERE again!!!

We are a couple in our 30s who heads to longboat to simply relax and chill on the beach. This is our second time to LBK, and last year we stayed at cabanna beach club. Both cabanna and The Beach are similar. We like that The Beach is a smaller condo unit (10). The grounds are very well maintained. The... More

We stayed here for one night mostly to check out Longboat Key because we had heard good things about this beach town. Room was clean. Murphy bed set up was poorly done. No way to watch TV in bed. TV screen was smaller than my laptop screen so not even visible from the couch. There is nowhere to put a... More

I would definitely recommend The Beach as the perfect vacation for anyone! The beach is beautiful and the sunsets are breath taking. We stayed in room 106 on the ground floor having the outside patio was great for morning coffee. The room has everything you would need and maid service daily. Access to the beach couldn't be any more convenient.... More

We stayed here last June for 4 nights. It was wonderful. We were looking for an uncrowded beach vacation and that is just what we got. The scenery is beautiful! We rented condo #225, it was nice to have the separate bedroom but it was a little cramped with our teenage daughter sleeping on the sofa bed. But when your... More
