We had unit #22 over the Memorial Day weekend and had an excellent stay. The split floor plan with the bedrooms on opposite sides was nice and this unit must have been redone in the past year or so.
The feel of the unit was light and tropical. There is a slight view of the bay from the screened porch. This unit was across the street from the beach, but even with it being a holiday weekend, crossing the street with young children was not a problem.
For the money, this was an excellent choice.
Word of warning to anyone staying on Longboat in 2012 - the Publix grocery store has been torn down and they are building a new one that is scheduled to open in 2013. The CVS has a few more groceries than a normal one to help with this, but you will still need to shop off island for most of your food needs.
