where to stay on longboat key

We've never been to Longboat key and are wondering where to stay for a week over the 4th of July. Is it possible to get a place right on the beach?

Yes, there are many places on the beach.

Do you want a condo or a hotel? Bedrooms? Budget?

www.vacationrentals.com or www.vrbo.com for condo rentals.

You can also read reviews in the "Hotels"section on this TA page. Make sure you also see the subsection for Specialty Lodging which is condos.

Can you be a little more specific on your interests and what type of place you're looking for -- full service hotel, motel unit, efficiency, condo, cottage, 1 bedroom or 4, etc. Longboat is about 10 miles long and quite narrow; most places are directly on the beach, and those that are not on the beach are never more than 5 minutes' walk away. You'll have an excellent variety of places from which to choose and since it is offseason the rates should be decent. Give us a bit more information and you'll get some suggestions.
