“Our piece of heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

We have enjoyed staying at Longboat Bay Club for 23 years. Units are huge, well decorated, and well maintained. Each 1600+ square foot unit has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, a full kitchen, 2 eating areas, and a large living room. Units have WiFi and 3 TVs, DVD, and VCR. With balconies overlooking Crane Bay, we have often watched manatees, ibises, egrets, herons, crabs, and all kinds of other wildlife. The grounds and pool/hot tub area are lovely, with beautiful landscaping. The friendly management and maintenance staff members are excellent. It is gorgeous, quiet, and peaceful. The Gulf of Mexico beach is just across the street. Bicycles and beach chairs are available, as are playground and outdoor cooking areas. Many excellent restaurants and diverse shopping areas are nearby.

We have been coming with friends for years and finally bought our own unit! Now we can stay for two weeks with our back-to-back bookings. The 1600+ sq ft units have a spacious fully equipped kitchen. Our favorite space is the huge master bedroom with large bathroom and king size bed. We have a corner unit with a large wrap around balcony overlooking Cranes Bay where you can see manatees swimming from time to time. The management staff and maintenance staff are excellent with response to questions/problems.

Room Tip: Corner units have large wrap around balcony.

Wonderful. We have been going to Longboat Bay Club for over 30 years. It is always kept in great condition. The staff is friendly and handles any request promptly. Longboat Bay Club is across the street from the Gulf and is on Cranes Bay where you can see manatees swimming from time to time.

Very nice spacious 2 bedroom condo. Nice view of the bay. Brand to bicycles on premises. Close to great restaurants. Very nice HD TV in the living room. Huge kitchen. What we really liked was the quiet. A/C In master bedroom could have been colder, but then again has the early am summer sun baking on windows. We uses a supplied floor fan and both slept like babies. Overall, I very nice stay.

Our first stay here at our new timeshare. All units are spacious (1600+sq feet). There is a large, eat-in kitchen with table and 4 chairs looking out over the Gulf of Mexico. The dining table seats 6 and there are table and chairs on the balcony overlooking Crane's Bay. The 'owner's suite' has a king-size bed with adequate room and so much storage I'd still have room if I'd brought my whole closets from home!

Amenities include a heated pool and jacuzzi, barbecue area with 2 picnic tables, small playground for kids/grandkids, bikes with baskets (so you can ride to the Publix), beach chairs and umbrellas and, best of all, parking underneath out of the sun.

Great location and a very good value for your money.

Room Tip: Corner rooms on any floor have a wrap-around balcony.
