Stayed here with my partner and loved the updated interiors, the friendly onsite staff, and ease of getting to the beach. We had a ground floor studio that simply required opening our sliding glass doors and running across the lawn to get to a beach that was already set up with chaise loungers. The blender provided in the kitchen assisted... More

Great location in a great location! Right on the beach with recliners and umbrellas conveniently available. Clean rooms. Friendly helpful staff. The only negative is that the kitchen didn't include any of the basic groceries that would make cooking easier. Would have liked to see salt, pepper, sugar, oil . . .

I rented B101 because it was larger and had two bathrooms. Even though it was only my husband and myself we liked the thought of having more space. What a disappointment . It started with the fact that the entrance was in the bedroom - like a cheap motel. None of the pictures on the website indicate this. The second... More

I made reservations for this condo complex using a third party site. I was visiting the Sarasota area for a conference I wanted to have a beach getaway as well. I notified the complex days prior to my arrival to notify them of my late arrival as I would not arrive until after 10pm. I was assured this would be... More

Our sincere apologies continue to be offered to this recent guest of The Beach on Longboat Key. Their title of "unfortunate experience" accurately describes what happened; and for that we are regretful. RVA is a small, locally-based company and for that reason we rely on our after hours service to notify us when such situations occur. Due to human error,... More

Wha a lovely beach experience. Amazing facility with the most attentive staff who clearly understand top notch service. Karl Jamenson was the person who brought our chairs and found us the perfect ocean edge spot. He knew the difference between intrusive service and friendly helpful service. Thanks for an amazing day at the beach

Stayed in a single room suite with a murphy bed. Very new and modern. Just as shown in the pictures. Very easy access to the pool and beach, (like 5 steps) This is a very small complex, don't expect big resort frills! The room was VERY clean, and well done! Service was amazing! TV is small, but we are not... More

We recently stayed for 3 days at The Beach with our 2 kids. The place is really peaceful, with a small pool, few rooms, and a private entrance to the beach. The view from our room was gorgeous! They offer free umbrellas and beach chairs (you only have to bring them back once you finish using them). For a couple... More

Our 2nd time at this small condo complex. We stayed here 2 years ago with a groupon and loved the beach here. We rented a 2 bed/2bath condo for 5 nights. The condo was in a quiet area with almost no one on the beach. Beach chairs and umbrellas were available everyday. Housekeeping freshened our room everyday. We went to... More

This is our 4th stay at "the beach". Love the fact that we don't have to eat every meal in a restaurant. While we did notice some "deferred maintenance" items, it is not enough to keep us from coming back. We have met many folks that come back year after year. For the money it is the best spot on...

The Beach is a beautifully maintained property with gardens and a pool, it also provides beach umbrellas and chairs for all guests. There is a private beach access so your beach area is... More
