Guestbook comments from the owner

July 9, 2009, By G. Simon (Tampa, FL.) This is a great condo. It's on the Gulf of Mexico side (which is where you want to be on Longboat Key). It's spacious and nicely furnished. It has 2 nice bedrooms and a study, which could easily be used for a 3rd bedroom. It has 2 patios for sunning, plus a screened lanai for outdoor dining. Great tennis facilities, lovely pool, and of course The Beach. The owners are great, and very attentive, as are the staff who run the condo facility. We look forward to renting this condo again in the future.

You couldn't as for anything more in a vacation retreat. Clean, modern, roomy accomodations. Steps to a white sand beach where the umbrellas and beach chairs are set up by the staff. A fully equipped exercise room. Two well maintained pools. Center island location that makes it easy to go to either Bradenton or Sarasota to enjoy their attractions. Fabulous restaurants on the key or just a short drive to St.Armand's Key. If you prefer eating in there is a FULLY equipped kitchen that I enjoyed using. The one disadvantage was that time flew to fast. Six weeks wasn't long enough so I plan on returning next year.

A bargain rental

  • 5 of 5
I leased the unit from Jan 1 - Mar 31, 2013. Upon entry the unit presents as immaculately clean, well maintained and exceptionally well accomodated. The 'U'shape floor plan makes the unit appear larger than the advertised sq. ft. and fascilitates privacy for all. The balcony off the living room provides a view of the gulf waters and is a good place for taking morning coffee or a cocktail at sundown. The lanai is a delight. Enclosed on three sides with the fourth side completely screened. Just a few steps from the kitchen and, with the table and chairs, just begs for al fresco dining. The location of the unit in the complex makes it most convenient to the main office,adult pool and spa, mailboxes, library, gym and bar/lounge. The den is surprisingly large and, with the hide a bed, would be ideal for 1 or 2 children because it can be closed off as a private room. The kitchen is large and equipped to satisfy the most picky cook.
Nancy and Ed are the best landlords you will ever deal with. They do everything and anything they can do to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. You really do feel like an honored guest in their home.
If I was not already scheduled for the southern hemisphere in 2014, I would be making arrangements to lease this unit for next winter.

There is Heaven after all!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and i had the most amazing time,the beach was incredible, my 2 young boys enjoyed the pool and the beach, we were spoilt as it was off season so we basically had the whole place to ourselves, our beach chairs and umbrella were already put out everyday on the beach waiting for us.We were also lucky to meet some other children who were the boys age. The condo was very spacious bigger than we had anticipated, it was extremely clean aswell.We saw dolphins and swam with the Manatees which was amazing also. We wired our money to Ed as we found that this was the easiest way internationally and Ed was a pleasure to deal with,The beaches were so clean and the water was amazing, Longboat Key was a nice change from the over crowded beaches in Europe, and only 40 mins from the outlets it was a dream come true! There were around only 5 people on our beach it was so quiet and the kids could run and play anywhere, it was incredibly safe.We also jumped on the tram every other day as it stopped outside the condo and this helped save money on renting a car, we took the tram to Publix which was only 5 mins away and also the Aquarium, the kids had a blast. I would highly recommend Eds condo to anyone who is looking for a summer they never want to forget!! We certainly had that summer..6 weeks wasn't long enough at all.
