A perfect month

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I have been renting monthly units in Florida for the last 6 years. This was the best one yet and we will be back next year. The condo was immaculate and fully equipped. Richard, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with and very helpful with any questions. Four minute walk to the private beach (lounge chairs provided), four second walk to the heated pool, short stroll to private dock on quiet bay provided many relaxing days. We enjoyed dining & relaxing on the private screened lanai, but also found many good restaurants within walking distance or a 5 to 10 minute drive. Anna Maria Island is a 4 to 5 minute drive for a "beachy" feel with many informal restaurants & bars. 9 to 10 minute drive in the other direction provides more formal dining and shopping at St. Armand's Circle.

We rented this property for April. The villa was spotless, well maintained with lovely furnishings. We cooked everyday and found the kitchen equipped with everything we needed. Nothing was too much trouble for Richard the owner, we didn't have any issues but were confident that if there was Richard would soon sort them. Just a few steps from the pool and only a short walk to the beach, we had a lovely relaxing peaceful stay. Saving up to stay at this villa again in paradise.

Wonderful stay at this villa!

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented this villa for a month and had a wonderful experience. The villa is very well maintained and equipped. My wife particularly liked the kitchen and the fact that it had everything we needed for cooking and serving – even two types of coffee maker so everyone can have their favorite. The living area and bedrooms are very comfortable and attractive, and we really enjoyed having the second bathroom. The back patio looks out on a very pretty landscaped area surrounding the pool, which is a short distance away. Despite this, the villa is very quiet and private. The grounds of the complex are well maintained, and it seemed like every day the staff was busy trimming the many bushes, plants, and trees on the property.

The complex has one side facing the bay, with boat docks, and the other (across the street) on the Gulf. Also across the street are tennis courts, shuffleboard, charcoal grills, and gazebos. The Gulf beach is beautiful, clean, and private, perfect for beach walks any time of day. There are many nice chairs and lounges for the use of the residents. We particularly liked the many flocks of sea birds that spend the day on these more secluded sections of the beach. Almost every day we walked across the street to watch the sun set, along with a small group of other residents. What a treat! Everyone we met in the complex was very friendly and welcoming.

Another treat is the fact that there are many great restaurants which are only a short drive away in every direction, and even a few within walking distance for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The owners have been very responsive and helpful to us. If you are looking for a beautiful, well-equipped rental in an excellent location, this is a great choice. We can't wait to come back next year!

Gorgeous without the glitz

  • 5 of 5

Property 84986 at Whitney Beach, Longboat Key, was all that was described, yet it exceeded our expectations. While Longboat Key is upscale, the complex itself is pleasantly low key and beautifully maintained. The palms, plantings, pool and birds are so pleasing to the eye. The unit is pristine, quietly and tastefully decorated, and stocked with everything needed, good kitchen equipment (even the knives were sharpened), comfortable beds, and room for entertaining. The villa is located just minutes away from very good restaurants (Bayou Cafe and Harry's), and not far from pretty St. Armand's Key for shopping, and the art and culture of Sarasota and St. Petersberg. Rest, relaxation, spectacular sunsets and some sightseeing is what we were after and exactly what we received. The poster of Gulf of Mexico Drive on Longboat Key that hangs in the villa captures the mood exactly, so I tracked it down on the internet and purchased it in Sarasota. I wanted to take some of the wonderful vacation experience home. R. and D. Burtis

This beautiful, immaculate condo on Whitney Beach is the perfect place to vacation. The owner has thought of our every need. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped, the decor is lovely, and the neighbors are friendly. We will definitely return at our first opportunity!

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

15 yards to the pool, 30 yards to the bay and 100 yards to the Gulf. Living in well-equipped, quiet, comfortable and a really clean condo, within a tropical garden was just great.

We surely will come again.
