Where is stay with small children

I think we have decided on on Longboat Key for our vacation the first of May. Can someone share their insight where to stay.

We are looking to stay on the beach, possibly a cottage/inn/or condo - something quaint - glitz not required. We have two small boys so "kid friendly" is a must! I'd also like to have a kitchenette.... I'd like to eat breakfast and maybe lunch in if we so choose.

I've looked on VRBO and I'm just not sure.....

Any advice is appreciated!!!!

If you go to the "Hotel" section you can read the reviews on many places like Little Gull or Casa del Mar etc. Make sure you also look under Hotels, subheading Specialty Lodging.

In May rates will be less, so you will have a nice selection.

We can give you an opinion on places when you find availability/price/size etc. VRBO.com and www.vacationrentals.com are good places to look, too.

Little Gull is small and cottage-like; Casa Del Mar is quite large. There are many, many others that are in-between such as Turtle Crawl Inn, Sea Club III, Sea Grape, etc. In addition to checking VRBO you might want to browse through the following websites: www.resortquestlongboatkey.com; www.vacationfla.com; www.wedebrock.com
