We have been coming here to Sun n Sea for 9 years from Md. to spend a week with other family members. This is a real treasure of a place. Private, beautiful beach. Clear to the bottom aquamarine water. Sea and bird creatures up close. It's simply paradise.

I reserved #16 apartment for a beach stay with my daughter. We had a great time! It's like home, shady, quiet, relaxed, beach chairs provided, and a beautiful location on Longboat Key! There's an outdoor shower at the beach and apartment building to rinse off. The apartment was well maintained, has central A/C, ceiling fans, plenty of towels, and had... More

We spent the week here from Christmas day to New Years Day and had such a wonderful time! The cottages are perfect the place itself is very small and quiet but has everything you need! Even beach chairs and shareable beach toys in water floaties. It was very well ran and we very much appreciated them accommodating our needs! Definitely... More

My wife and I spent five days here and absolutely loved it. Not a place if you are looking for action (or the rest of Longboat Key this time of the year). However, great place to come and chill. Great location right on the beach, shaded by giant pines. The staff is super friendly and the cottages very clean. Great... More

We drove up from Marco Island to visit friends staying here. I was able to book a one bedroom apartment to fit my family. I was pleasantly surprised by the cost and accommodations. Our unit was very clean and fit our family of 5 just fine. I loved the fact that my friends were right across the driveway. The whole... More

Just visited Sun 'n Sea for a long weekend. I read a lot of the reviews on TripAdvisor before calling to see if they had something available for the weekend, so I'll try to focus on things that stood out to me as a new guest. 1. Trees - there are trees all around the duplexes and cottages. As you... More

This is a wonderful facility. It has been in Longboat Key for years. We used to stay there regularly and then moved far away. We are now only 3 hours from Longboat Key, so plan to take advantage of this quiet property. It has been renovated and redecorated since we were there 20 years ago. We were pleasantly surprised. There... More

We were introduced to this place 3 years ago by friends who have been traveling there for years and are hooked. We usually book our next stay before we check out. This resort is right on the beach, you walk out from your cottage or apartment and within a few steps, you are on a perfect white sand, quiet beach... More

My sister and brother in law have stayed here several times and really enjoyed it. This was our first visit and we loved the place. The location is awesome, right on the beach.
