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.

Jim Zilli purchased this condo in 2015

Why Jim Zilli chose Longboat Key

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.

What makes this condo unique

At secluded Longboat Key small complex. 5th floor unit of 5 floors with beautiful views of the Gulf and the beach right in front of you.

Beautiful place!! A little slice of heaven on earth!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Zilli Tower 503 was amazing! The condo was beautifully decorated with high end decor and furniture and was just as advertised in the photos. Located right on the beach with awesome views of the ocean. The sunsets were the best part of the day. The beach was very private with lounge chairs available to guests. Everything was provided in the kitchen - pots, pans, utensils, etc. and fresh towels and paper products provided. Kayak and paddle board rentals right across street and it was just a short trip to St. Armand’s circle with excellent restaurants and shopping. Thanks Jim for offering a great place at Longboat Key. We hope to be back again soon.

Truly a Great Find!

  • 5 of 5

This unit was excellent. It is right on the beach, and the beach is never crowded. The owner, Jim Zilli, does a great job of making sure you enjoy yourself. The furniture is nice, definitely nicer than other places I have stayed. There are little touches as well such as beach umbrellas included in the unit for your use. The best example of Jim's hospitality is with a simple fan. I emailed him a couple of days before we arrived to ask him if the unit had a box fan in it as I like the noise and airflow when I sleep. He wrote back that it didn't. I told him thanks for the head's up and that I understood. He then wrote back 10 minutes later to say he was having his maintenance man pick one up to put in the unit. Please note, I never asked him to do that or expected him to. He did it because he truly believes in little touches like that to make your stay enjoyable. This is a great place to stay.

Owner's Response: The Yates's we're the perfect good communication before arrival, and as I checked in during the week to see if I can be of service. This is a wonderful family you can just tell by the tone, and how they approach interaction with you and I would highly recommend them to any prospective renter.

Clean, great beach access, nice amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Zilli's 503 unit was great. The beds were comfortable and condo was clean. It had a great view of the ocean. All staff of the complex was very nice and Mr. Zilli was extremely helpful with information about the area. My only issue was that it should be more evident that Zilli Tower and Zilli Villa are actually located at The Turtle Crawl Inn. I missed this information and upon arriving was unsure I was in the right location.

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was very clean and well equipped for our week at the beach. We were notified on our arrival in Sarasota, that our room was available earlier than the normal check in time. That was appreciated so we could unload and hit the beach earlier!

Another fantastic longboat key vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Great property & excellent location. The unit is very nicely decorated & well taken care of. Jim is very accessible if you have any questions or needs while you are there. Loved having a pool as well as direct beach access, also had outdoor bathroom so you didn't have to come all the way back into unit throughout the day. This is my 4th time to Longboat, first at this location & would definitely stay at Turtle Crawl again.
