“Clean & Quiet, Simple Luxury”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2010

This was our first stay at the Beachcomber but we plan to be back. Like all the accommodations on the Gulf-side of LBK, the beach here is beautiful. The Beachcomber location was ideal, quiet but within walking distance of a grocery and several restaurants . Our condo was clean and well equipped, pleasantly appointed. Some units are more updated than others but you can see each one on their website. Having a manager on-site is always good and the several-person staff here was very nice; helpful and pleasant. Free WiFi in all rooms and the public area. We've stayed at other places on LBK, some much more expensive and some about the same. For the money, this was a great value. We'll stay in the 2 bedroom units next time though, facing the beach.

Have stayed at the Beachcomber more than 5 times over the last 8 years or so. A great property directly on the beach in Longboat key. LBK has tons of multi million dollar homes but we like the Beachcomber beacause it is very clean, simple but elegant and right on a beautiful calm beach.

  • Liked — Beautiful beach. Great Restaurants.
  • Disliked — Nothing

Eleven of us rented 3 of the beachfront condos for a family get together. It was everything we needed. Very clean, super management, very secure, very quiet The condos are beachfront with beautiful views and sunsets. The beachfront area was very clean and never crowded. They have a super pool for the kids. The location is great. We will be back next year.
