I found the perfect, best hidden, beach getaway that was exactly what our marriage needed! The Beach at Longboat Key is quiet, peaceful and has the most amazing sunsets enjoyed on our private 2nd floor balcony or on the beach which was just a few steps from our room. We went in mid August 2012 to celebrate my birthday and it ended uo being just what the marriage relationshiop doctor ordered! Just a little over 3 hours from Ft. Lauderdale it felt as if we were on a deserted island. We loved the Siesta Key, Sarasota,and Longboat Key area so much we want to move there!
Martha attended to our request to move to a more private studio and we loved the Murphy bed! The room was spotless, large and well equipped with towels, sheets and plenty pillows. With updated, stainless steel appliances it wasn't your cheesy beach decor but a place you could live comfortably. There were a few families there but we had the privacy we needed, upstairs and away from the pool. Siesta Beach is a must visit as is the Ringling Mansion and museum. We are already planning to go again in November!
