This is where you go to get away from it all and the beach is right there and at night you have the Circle and much more. This is my second visit and one of my favorite places in Florida. If you just need to get away from it all this the place. I suggest you rent the pent house... More

Located on beautiful Longboat Key, this resort has it all: beach, pool, tennis, bikes… Conveniently located to grocery stores and shopping at St. Armand’s Circle. Our two-bedroom bayside unit was well-stocked and comfortably furnished. The grounds are impeccably clean and beautifully landscaped. Upgrades are in progress, with new beds already having been installed, and new flooring soon to follow. Plus,... More

We usually rent the 2 bedroom penthouse unit because it is right on the beach. Our unit is always clean and has a fully equipped kitchen...a great place to entertain friends and family. We love the free bikes available on the property to do our grocery shopping and other errands.The best part about this unit are the sunsets! They are... More

We were delighted with the location of Gulf Tides--right on the beach, five miles from St Armand's Circle, and less than a mile from the supermarket and CVS (which are nicely hidden off the road). The whole island is beautiful and free of the commercialization you find in other parts of Florida. We had a one bedroom, two bath unit,... More

Stayed in a 2 bedroom villa at Gulf Tides at Long Boat Key for a week in Feb 2016. We stayed on the bay side on the second floor and had a view of the ocean located across the road. Resort was quiet and clean with a nice pool and easy access to the ocean. The unit was well maintained,... More

We spent a week at Gulf Tides in late January, 2016. Our 2 bedroom penthouse unit was right on the beach and was clean, well equipped and very comfortable. We had a very enjoyable time there, although, not the greatest weather!!

We stayed in a 1 bedroom unit across the road from the beach. It was extremely clean. Entire staff was great. Getting to the beach was very easy. We will seek out Gulf Tides of Longboat Key when we return to the area. What a week vacation should be.

The apartment has a nice kitchen, 2 bathrooms, a balcony and a nice gulf view. It is only a half mile to the post office, library, grocery and drug store. Nice added touch is the Monday morning continental breakfast and Wednesday noon lunch. God time to mingle and eat. Buss stops out front and goes to the other islands for... More

All rooms small, couch in the living room needed replacing. No back support. Had to rotate the king mattress because it... More
