“Best place in Longboat!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

We are making Sun 'n' Sea a yearly tradition! Quiet, relaxing, perfect for kids or couples. The staff was FANTASTIC and the rooms were SUPER clean! Close to St.Armands Circle for shopping and dining. Full kitchen was great, we cooked all of our meals. They have thought of everything! The loaf of bread, milk and butter was a cute touch. We used them all! Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Everything is close to beach, we stayed in a 1 bedroom cottage which was perfect for the two of us a...

My first time at this wonderful place! Jim & Cindy provided a warm welcome from day one! The pristine grounds to the very clean & inviting cottage to the private beach...I sing the praises of the management for making my stay enjoyable. Cindy & Jim go out of their way to make sure everyone feels like family. Got a lumpy mattress? You get a new one the next day! Need a recliner for an elderly guest? Done before he arrives! I hope this enchanting place stays around for many many years. I intend to return each year from now on. Thank you Cindy & Jim. Many hugs to you!

Room Tip: They are all good locations within the compound

After being double booked at another hotel, We happened to stop in to the Sun n' Sea cottages. After explaining our dilemma, management (Cindy) worked diligently to accomedate us and found the PERFECT cottage for my family. The Cottage was delightful and inviting, the service was excellent, and the amenities were great! We will DEFINETLY return for future vacations. Cant thank Cindy and Jim enough for providing us with a great Memorial weekend. I would STRONGLY reccomend Sun n' Sea cottages for your beach gettaways. See you soon!

Room Tip: All rooms are great!

Been going for 20 years Cindy and Jim are great. Clean,comfortable, and not
over priced. Would recommend to most anyone. Plenty of restaurants close by and a grocery store a few miles away. Love this place !!!!!!

We had just finishing working an 8 month contract and were booked into the Hilton next store for free with a voucher but that property needs a face lifting badly!....
therefore we looked across the parking lot and by chance walked over and met a wonderful couple from Ohio operating it.
We were given a key to have a look at one of the rooms suggested and took it for 3 days, which would be a $100.00 less that the Hilton.
Although daily linen service is self serve, all supplies are available and with on site $1.50 washers and dryers.
Don't hesitate booking here!

Room Tip: No pool or fitness center but depending on your week selected can be a very tranquil experience. Pl...

Longboat key is one of the nicest places I have ever been to. The sun n sea resort offers private cottages right on the beach. No streets to cross to get to the beach. Individual car ports attached to your own personal cottage. The cottages come equipped with full kitchens, wifi, foldout sofa sleepers and much more. A great place for people of all ages.

First of all I want to say this place is not for everyone. It is nothing fancy, no pool or a lot of the other amenities people want. It is a comfortable place where you can relax, enjoy life and feel safe. This was our ninth year staying at Sun 'n Sea. We can't wait to go back each year. The cottages have everything you need to make you feel at home. They each have a full kitchen and a grill out back. If you don't want to cook there are plenty of great restaurants nearby. Cindy and Jim manage the Sun 'n Sea and are great. They make you feel at home. The beach is right there for you to enjoy. They have beach chairs and chaises and pool toys for the kids. We see many of the same people from year to year. Many have been coming for a lot more years than we have. We make our reservation from year to year. Our favorite thing to do while we are there is to watch the sunset over the Gulf. We never get tired of seeing it. We love to walk on the beach and sit on the beach and to go in the water. Most days it is so calm and is most enjoyable. We hate it when it is time to leave. Can't wait to back next year.
