We lucked into finding this gem 4 years ago and have been back every year since. The rooms are terrific; plenty of space, comfortable beds, 3 TVs, large living area, big stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, dishwasher, microwave and the outside balconies are wonderful.
The view of the sunset every night from right outside your front door is beautiful. The location is ideal; many wonderful restaurants, Mote Aquarium, St Armand’s Circle, beautiful beach across the street, CVS and Publix 2 minutes away, Sarasota within a short 15 minute drive – all you need is a stone’s throw away.
The facility staff are all wonderful – they are welcoming and accommodating. On-site there is a tennis court and basketball hoop, a cove for fishing and docking a boat, a pool and hot tub, bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas and even gas grills for a nice BBQ if you choose. With only 15 units it feels very private and you feel catered to at all times.
Another wonderful perk is that on windy days/nights your back balcony and the pool area are both very sheltered. You can leave the beach on a windy day to then settle into a calm and relaxing break by the pool/hot tub.
We love LBK and are so grateful that we came here first since the Longboat Bay Club has made a terrific vacation spot even better due to their uniqueness.
We could not recommend Longboat Bay Club more highly.
