My wife and I were looking for a wonderful place to get away and enjoy a week of our honeymoon. We both loved the water and beach so the idea of Longboat Key sounded like the right spot for us. I had been to Beach Castle in the past with family and always remembered the qualities about it that kept me coming back.
We weren't looking for exciting night life or large groups of people. We just wanted to get away to a place we felt was semi-secluded and offered us exactly what we were looking for.
Spent a few days visiting nearby attractions such as Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota on the bay. Had a great time at Myakka State Park checking out the wildlife. Ringling Museum was an interesting change of pace and only minutes from downtown Sarasota.
To summarize, I'd have to say that the qualities I've found at Beach Castle have kept me coming back and provided warm and cherishable memories I'll never forget. So it doesn't matter if your on the Bay side and want to step out your door into the hot tub or pool, or perhaps take a stroll down to the dock and sit enjoying a sunrise over Sarasota Bay, or you want to stay on the Gulf side and walk down a spiral staircase to a 50 foot trail and end up on the beach, checking out some of the most beautiful sunsets you'll ever see, Beach Castle offers just what I'm looking for in a beach resort.
