Clean, neat, most of what you need, a little tight, but you intend to spend most of your time outside anyway. Right on the beach and probably the best value on Longboat. Management is friendly and small laundry room is a plus

We have been coming to the Bradenton/Longboat Key area for years and this was one of our best vacations. We stayed in condo #222 for 5 nights and it was perfect for two people! Had everything we needed. After reading reviews we were worried about the bed and it not being comfortable so we were shocked to find that the...

We rented a 1 bedroom for 10 days at a cost of over $300 a day. The unit was extremely small and outdated. Appliances did not work. The television in the LR also controlled the bedroom TV, so when changing channels on the LR remote, the channels on the bedroom TV changed, that would indicate that the wiring is off....

The Beach at Longboat Key is a perfect location. However, since the apartment we rented for 5 nights was on the ground floor, we were directly in front of the pool with no ocean view and no direct access to the beach. Our patio was practically an extension of the pool area separated by a wrought iron fence. To get...

While the view from the balcony of my room was breathtaking, the room itself leaned toward awkward. The room was clean enough, but the bed was a wall bed, which had doors that blocked the view of a television that has seen better days. Also, the balcony door did not lock, which was a tad unnerving. It's the little things...

Many places for picnics and free parking areas. Nice soft sand. Many places to stop and eat to enjoy this area. Clean restrooms and changing areas. Picnic tables available for snacking. Gulf water is clear and warm.

The condo was 107, which was on the ground floor, end unit. The view was incredible from the patio and being able to just walk from there to the beach, without going down stairs, was very convenient. It was furnished nicely, had extra blankets, pillows, etc. The whole building was very well maintained and spotless, including the pool and parking...

Just reading these reviews made Me think I had stayed elsewhere. My family n I stayed in the 'dreaded 101' and loved it. Yes you enter straight into bedroom (don't you normally in a hotel?) but the bedroom was large and modern and comfortable. The next room had a sofa bed in which made the room small but all we...

We stayed at this nice hotel over my birthday weekend, and had a really great stay. Our room was clean and comfortable, we had the small room without a water view but we still enjoyed it and plan on staying here again, except next time we'll rent one with a water view. Martha, who was on duty during our stay,...
