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. We had a duplex cottage- two bedrooms, full kitchen, one bath, living room and screened in porch. Everything was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked...

We love Sun 'n Sea. We have been going there for 9 years & each year we can't wait to go back. We have been staying in the one bedroom cottage for the last several years. We book it from year to year. We have our own screened in porch where we can sit & just enjoy our surroundings. We...

My family discovered this beautiful island back in the late 60's. We have made this our vacation spot for well over 35 years. Sun and Sea is a unique place to stay. Homey and convenient to everything in the area. We are steps from the Gulf of Mexico. My parents stayed here for years and my sister and I began...

We are making Sun 'n' Sea a yearly tradition! Quiet, relaxing, perfect for kids or couples. The staff was FANTASTIC and the rooms were SUPER clean! Close to St.Armands Circle for shopping and dining. Full kitchen was great, we cooked all of our meals. They have thought of everything! The loaf of bread, milk and butter was a cute touch....

We had just finishing working an 8 month contract and were booked into the Hilton next store for free with a voucher but that property needs a face lifting badly!.... therefore we looked across the parking lot and by chance walked over and met a wonderful couple from Ohio operating it. We were given a key to have a look...

Longboat key is one of the nicest places I have ever been to. The sun n sea resort offers private cottages right on the beach. No streets to cross to get to the beach. Individual car ports attached to your own personal cottage. The cottages come equipped with full kitchens, wifi, foldout sofa sleepers and much more. A great place...

First of all I want to say this place is not for everyone. It is nothing fancy, no pool or a lot of the other amenities people want. It is a comfortable place where you can relax, enjoy life and feel safe. This was our ninth year staying at Sun 'n Sea. We can't wait to go back each year....
