Why Neville and Peggy OReilly chose Longboat Key

We fell in love with Cedars and Longboat Key while vacationing here over the past few years. Our home at Cedars offer everything we enjoy doing including tennis, beautiful beaches, a wide range of dining options, easily accessible cultural activities like theatre, shows, dance and the circus arts conservatory. We also love that we meet interesting people who vacation here from all over the world

What makes this townhome unique

Our home is positioned on a cul-de-sac in the desired Forest Way section of the Cedars East Tennis Resort. This rare location ensures quiet and privacy and positions you closest to the Longboat Key walking path whch lead to the public beach accesses.

Our home backs onto a preserve; you can see and hear a variety of birdlife as you relax on the lanai with book, a cup of coffee, a glass of wine or a cocktail and good conversation.

Cedars offers a wide range of amenities right outside our door (including pool, tennis courts, fitness center, pool, bikes, for guest use, cafe and tiki bar).

Wonderful Time/Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

Neville and Peggy OReilly’s vacation home is great. We have had extended stays at places in Cedar's for years and we like this condo the best. Close to the pool. Close to the beach. Close to Harry's and the Haye Loft. We stayed in this condo a few years ago from the previous owner and the upgrades from Peggy and Neville have added so much. They are so thoughtful and easy to deal with. When there was a wide area electrical outage Peggy kept me informed of the progress and when there was a problem with the sprinkler fire suppression system in the condo next door Peggy kept me informed about our minimal inconvenience. What a nice couple they are. My wife and I would rent again from them in a heartbeat.

Fantastic vacation in total comfort

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely fell in love with Longboat Key and Neville and Peggy's place was an enormous contributor to the success of our vacation.

A spacious environment with very modern, comfortable and warm design, tastefully decorated with all modern amenities and a kitchen with all the necessary tools and appliances to satisfy everyone's inner "Gordon Ramsay".

The property being part of the Cedar's Tennis club was a bonus, with great clay surface courts, a decent gym and a really nice pool. Very clean and well maintained. The Beach which was a few steps across the street was Great! Really nice sand and uncrowded. Great place for boogie boarding and looking for seashells!

We truly found it to be a privilege to stay at this lovely home and we sincerely appreciated Neville and Peggy's attention to our comfort.

We would (and hopefully will) go back!

Sincerely,

Patrick Mitschuinig

Very clean and nicely decorated

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was more than what we thought. The beach was beautiful and clear. We saw dolphins daily and manatee twice. The home was stocked with everyday items that are not normally at a rental place. The owners were extremely friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. The complex maintenance guy introduced him self and made sure we knew we could call him need be. I would definitely recommend this unit and plan on returning next year!!

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I cannot say enough about this beautiful townhome. We were in Florida vacationing while our daughter was nearby at basketball camp. Having never been on the gulf side of Florida, we searched the VRBO sight and found what we'd hoped would suit our needs. Peggy and Neville were great to work with, gave us very clear and concise information prior to our trip, and even took time out of their own vacation to check in and make sure we had everything we needed. The home has everything one can possibly need and was among the cleanest we've ever stayed in. I loved the pool, and if you're a tennis player, (we're not) you'll love the numerous courts on the property. My husband rented a bike from the clubhouse just about every single day (free to use as resort guest) to explore the area and scope out the restaurants we'd be going to at night. All in all, 539 Forest Way exceeded our expectations. My only regret is that we were not able to stay longer. We hope to be back next summer for several weeks. Thanks, Margaret and Neville!!

A truly relaxing vacation in Longboat Key

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay in this bright and convenient home in Longboat Key. The owners were wonderful and accommodating, and made sure we had everything we needed. The home was clean, comfortable and relaxing. The location was ideal for us. Our favorite quiet beach was only a 5 min walk away and we enjoyed it every day (soft sand, no crowds, very gentle waves and gorgeous sunsets). If we wanted more activity - Sarasota was only 15 min drive away with tons of shopping, restaurants and dessert places. We visited Marie Selby Botanical gardens (30 min drive) and Myakka State Park (40 min drive), which offer a lot of excitement for children and adults. Local restaurants were great as well; we especially enjoyed Harry's for lunch (walking distance), Island Creperie for amazing crepes (Bradenton Beach) and Mar Vista dockside restaurant for dinner. We would gladly return again!!!!
