Our first stay here at our new timeshare. All units are spacious (1600+sq feet). There is a large, eat-in kitchen with table and 4 chairs looking out over the Gulf of Mexico. The dining table seats 6 and there are table and chairs on the balcony overlooking Crane's Bay. The 'owner's suite' has a king-size bed with adequate room and so much storage I'd still have room if I'd brought my whole closets from home!

Amenities include a heated pool and jacuzzi, barbecue area with 2 picnic tables, small playground for kids/grandkids, bikes with baskets (so you can ride to the Publix), beach chairs and umbrellas and, best of all, parking underneath out of the sun.

Great location and a very good value for your money.

Room Tip: Corner rooms on any floor have a wrap-around balcony.

Great location between the gulf & bay. I would have to say that this is one of the nicest places my wife & I have ever stayed at. Very spacious unit with nice furniture & very comfortable. Kitchen was huge! Unit was clean. We had a corner unit with a view of the gulf & bay. Saw a Manatee one day. Staff was very helpful and pleasant. Nice pool, hot tub & tennis court. Grounds were beautiful. The property had bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys for kids, fishing poles & tackle, tennis equipment, & more for guest use. Beach was across the street, beautiful, with easy common access - one can walk for miles - wasn't the whitest sand in the region but uncrowded. Nice walkway & bike trail in front of property.

Room Tip: Corner units offer the best views of both the bay & gulf.

We stayed with friends at the Longboat Bay Club. Nice pool and hot tub. We were right across the street from the beach. Our unit was very clean and spacious. It was fairly close to Bradenton, Anna Marie Island, Sarasota. We had a very relaxing stay. Staff was very helpful to our needs. I would go back again, maybe next year.

Room Tip: The Corner units were very spacious and beautiful. Very relaxing and quite.

This is an awesome place to stay. The staff do a great job.
If you want to party then this place isn't for you. Very quiet no-commercial area.
It is a short walk across the two lane highway to the gulf.
So uncrowded was the beach we feel it was all ours.
I can't wait to get another change to go back.
p.s. saw one comment about a hassle to get to the beach. ??????
Maybe they don't like a short 50 yard walk or that you have to leave the unit to see it?

Room Tip: This place only has 15 units and each one of them have a good view. Ours was a backwater bay. Wrap...
