We rented a one-bedroom unit for Labor Day weekend. Although the hotel was completely booked, we never had problems with parking, beach access, or the pool. There was always plenty of space. The unit we stayed in was large, clean, well-equipped, and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the private lanai for breakfast. The one thing to bear in mind is that... More

We loved staying at Beach Castle in April 2013! The condos are individually owned and then managed by a central office. The place isn't too big, so it's not very noisy. We had a 2 bedroom unit on the 2nd floor. Decent sized kitchen, bedrooms, and dishwasher. We enjoyed the 2 balconies also tremendously. There is a nice pool and... More

Booked through expedia. Unit was ok but really needed some updating. As each unit is owned independently, perhaps other units had better decor. We did have a nice view of the intercoastal and the grounds were well maintained. Having just come from Siesta Key - I will go back there. Lots of high end condos at Longboat but the beach... More

Hired a 2 bedroom apartment for family. Arrived noon but the room wasn't ready until 4pm. Not great with a baby. Once in the room was clean and tidy. All amenities provided. Wifi _ check...what else is there! No major grumbles. Reasonable value given the stunning location.

Stayed at the Tradewinds Resort, Anna Maria Island for about ten years straight during the 4th of July holiday. Tradewinds got to be run down and the staff were consistently rude! Anna Maria itself is crowded and the main street is narrow and unsafe for children. Summer rains often flood many areas of the main drag there and the sidewalks... More

We have been staying at The Beachcastle Resort for 8 years and it just gets better and better. Our favorite is unit 1on the gulf side which has a nice deck and a short walk onto the beach.Go and see for yourself.

We stayed here for two nights with three other couples. Great place...small but perfect. We stayed in units 21 & 22 and they were perfect for two couples each...very, very clean and comfortable. It's great having a kitchen, even if we didn't cook. Just being able to have room to put out snacks, make coffee and have dessert is wonderful.... More

we go to LBK several times a year and cannot find a better resort. small, clean and beautiful, the Beach Castle has all the amenities of the larger rental condos and yet only has 21 units so they are rarely crowded. Unit 3 is my favorite but all the units are close to the beach and bay. awesome property and... More
