About Valerie Schneiderman

Ross and I were both born and raised in California, but for the last 14 years we've made Ridgefield, Connecticut our home. We were looking for a place to get away to in the colder months and found Longboat Key at the suggestion of local friends in CT. On our first visit we fell in love with the relaxed feel and beautiful blue waters of Longboat Key. With Sarasota so close by, there is lots to see and do when you want to leave the beach....which isn't often. We also love the easy flights available to and from the NY area. We can leave the CT house in the early morning and be at the beach on Longboat for lunch! We hope you'll love our place as much as we do and return again and again with family and friends.

Why Valerie Schneiderman chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Casa Del Mar was a perfect fit for us. With our work and travel schedules at this time, we are likely to be on Longboat only a few times each year. We want to share our place with others who will also enjoy it. Casa Del Mar has great, friendly staff. In fact, it's a friendly place. Not too big, very well tended grounds, a perfect location right on the beach.....what more could you ask for?

What makes this condo unique

We believe we've made a very unique place for our family...and our visitors. It's not like any other unit....that's why I called it Zen at the beach. Our place is clean, modern, upgraded, uncluttered. It fits perfectly with easy going days at the beach, and has plenty of space without being too big. We hope you like our home away from home as much as we do!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was even lovelier than in the photos and much more spacious than anticipated. The unit was extremely clean, fully updated, and had a serene/comfortable quality about it that certainly helped us relax while on vacation. It was also a very quick walk to the beach and pool. I could go on and on about this condo...we will certainly be back! Additionally wanted to point out the wonderful management and staff at Casa del Mar (Scott, Bev, and Mike).

Lovely, well cared for condo

  • 4 of 5

This was a lovely, very clean condo. Only negatives for us were that, although there technically is a gulf view, there's not a truly enjoyable beach view from the unit, nor does it have a porch/lanai. There were no food basics at all beyond salt & pepper. No mustard, ketchup, cooking oil, not even a small supply of trash bags. We were told this unit is one of the nicest in the development, and overall we agree it was a great condo. Also, management was very pleasant and helpful.
