We have been to Longboat Key several times over the years and have always stayed a the The Beachcomber. For a simple, quiet and laid back atmosphere, The Beachcomber can't be beat. The ocean views and sunsets are phenomenal and the beach area is quiet and comfortable. The Beachcomber is an older property and as such will have some quirkiness,...

We have been to the Beachcomber for several years now. We continue to be very pleased, i.e., offers great value and is conventiently located to the ocean (just out the door), shopping, restaurants, and recreation. If there is anything you need, management is on site to assist. This facility offers you a comfortable stay without the highrise environment. Don and...

We enjoyed a fantastic week in this beautifully appointed condo right on the beach. The decorating was done keeping the beach home feel in mind. All the ammenities met our requirements as far as furnishings, kitchen, bedroom, and bath accessories. Obviously a well thoughtout plan for potential renters to be able to enjoy all the comforts of a home away...

When I booked the beachcomber at short notice, I explained that my wife was terminally ill, and that we needed a peaceful apartment with a sea view as this would be her last holiday. We had read some of the reviews and had selected the beachcomber because it said it would be peaceful. When we arrived we were very pleased...

This is our second stay and certainly will not be out last. The condo units have been great. They are clean and equipped with all the necessities. The beach, the pool, the condos--it is all great! Thanks again. Bill and Shari C.

Two years ago we stayed in unit #505 and were so pleased that we booked the same apartment again this September. From the fifth floor one has a view inland with the bay in the distance. The supermarket Publix is a five-minute stroll away across the main road. The unit was clean and tidy with more than enough living space...

We stayed in unit 406. It was gorgeous, very comfortable (great beds) and well supplied. However, the condo was disappointing to say the least. The pool was dirty and we do not believe it was vacuumed once during our stay. A new sprinkler system was being installed and in addition to the daily continuous banging noises, the water was shut...
