I have been going to the Veranda since 2004. We stay in Unit 410 --a two bedroom ocean front condo. The view is amazing! floor to ceiling doors looking out to the ocean. A nice pool and right on the beach. Made things so easy when my kids were little and took naps. Could sit on the huge veranda while they slept. The veranda spans from one bedroom to the other. The rooms are always clean and recently they were updated and very pretty. The condo has everything you need and the office is generous if you need extra toilet paper or laundry detergent, etc.
Longboat Key, for those who have never been, is a narrow long island that is less crowed and feels more residential (classy). For people who want tons of tourists and razzmatazz this is not the place for you. I love that the beaches on Longboat are quiet and clean. If I want night life I am ten minutes to Armand's Circle or downtown Sarasota (which has restaurants and shopping) and ten minutes to Bradenton Beach and Anna Maria Island for bars, restaurants and shops.
