About Jim Zilli

Jim Zilli grew up in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, area. He started coming to Longboat Key in the early 1980's. Jim chose this Tower 503 property as it was the perfect vacation property with an amazing gulf view. Jim had previously purchased the nearby two-bedroom villa and came to live in Longboat Key full-time in 2009. The Tower 503 has upscale touches equivalent to a Ritz or St. Regis suite.

Jim is CEO in the family’s Wisconsin on off-site catering special events business, so he has ample experience in hospitality. He finds great enjoyment and satisfaction helping guests have amazing vacations in his properties – many of whom come back year after year. “I have many families who I have gotten to know over the years and spent time , dining , golfing , helped them find realtors, and more,” says Jim.

Clients have complimented Jim’s style as attentive and not pushy. They appreciate he will check in with them during their stay. He wants renters to know he’s there for them.

Why Jim Zilli chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

The most obvious reason Jim chose Longboat Key is the weather and beauty of this location, and the Villa is located just steps from a world-class beach. Guests never run out of things to do, whether it’s enjoying the nightlife in nearby Sarasota or simply collecting shells along the white sand beach. The weather provides just enough variety so you won’t be bored. Unlike other areas of Florida, Longboat Key is quiet, safe and has a small-town feel he enjoys. The area feels remote and natural yet it’s easy to access with the Sarasota airport just 7 miles east of Sarasota or from Tampa, which is 40 minutes away.

One of Jim’s favorite things to do is golf, and (there are several world-class courses within a 20-minute drive). He also enjoys movies, and recommends the annual film festival in Sarasota. He keeps a running list of the many, many things there are to do in the area - so whether you like to swim, sunbathe, walk on the beach, golf, shop, or all of the above, Jim’s guests find plenty to keep themselves entertained. At the same time, the secluded location offers privacy and quiet so if you, like most of us, need to catch up on rest while you’re here, you can fall asleep to nothing more than the gentle sound of the surf.

Five stars all the way!!

  • 5 of 5

I can’t say enough good things about our recent stay in the Zilli Tower in Longboat Key.

The unit was immaculate and spacious, with new high end furniture. I rarely like beds in rental units, but the beds in this unit were extremely comfortable. The bathroom looked to be recently remodeled with a beautiful walk in shower.

The views of the Gulf during the day are gorgeous, and the sunsets are incredible (whether you watch them from the beach with your toes in the water, or from the private balcony on the top floor of the unit). The beach is quiet during the day, and it was so soothing to stroll up and down the beach, or relax in the comfortable chaise lounges .

A few odds and ends that added to our enjoyment:

- Often when you sit on a balcony with a view, you find yourself staring at the railing, because it’s at eye level. The chairs on this unit’s balcony are seated high enough that you have an unobstructed view of the Gulf

- The owner Jim was a pleasure to work with. He checked in with us to see if we needed restaurant or golf suggestions, but was never ‘pushy’

- A welcome gift was waiting for us when we checked in which was much appreciated

We look forward to visiting this unit again!

Great View, Great Location, Great Unit!

The view is amazing.! Lovely sunsets, beautiful waves. Very private balcony with very comfortable table and chairs. The unit is tastefully decorated with new upscale living room and dining furniture and very clean. The beds are extremely comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. The building is very quiet and well maintained. So easy to walk on the beach every day, we had a wonderful stay here.

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Turtle Crawl Inn! The location is perfect; the condo is super clean and has all the amenities. Everything was as described and as depicted in the photos. We enjoyed dining at nearby restaurants and visiting the arts/antiques shops in downtown Sarasota. Can't wait to go back again!

Longboat Key Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a month on Longboat Key at the Zilli Tower in October. It was perfect. The view from the fifth floor lanai was great. The condo was very tastefully decorated and easy to maintain. Jim Zilli was great to work with and helpful. He accommodated our early arrival and even left a welcoming gift. It is convenient to great restaurants and shopping. We reviewed many Longboat properties and this was the best!
