A good location but dated.
Thank you for your feedback. I have passed along your comments to our cleaning services. July is a very hot month in Florida and the AC systems cannot make more than a 20 degree temperature change. So at times the AC will run continuously. Unfortunately the renter that left the morning you arrived damaged many of the blinds in the house and they could not be replaced in the turnover window. But good news for all of you that purchase the VRBO insurance, the insurance company will take care of the replacement blinds.
Everything about the house, the owner, and the location was exactly what we had hoped for, making our vacation one of the best ever! The owner was in communication with us throughout the process and was quick to respond positively to every inquiry. We especially appreciate being able to bring our family dog and the owners providing a dog crate.
The house was exactly as described and as shown in the pictures. The location was on the north end of Longboat Key, near to shopping, public beaches, and right on a canal. I especially enjoyed the tropical landscaping in the area and at the property. The was extremely comfortable and homey. The extra large living area with two large sofas and a love seat easily accommodated our group of 4 adults and two teenagers, as did the large dining table. There were plenty of areas to find a quiet spot, if wanted. This included a lovely seating area on the front porch with beautiful tropical plants, the lounge chairs and table near the pool, and the lounge chairs and tables at the dock. Also, having a split bedroom plan gave the teenagers their own space--they loved it.
We especially loved the screened pool area for a respite from the heat but still being able to sit outside comfortably. The pool was perfect--big enough for all and so relaxing.
Having the dock allowed us to park our boat at the house and just hop on whenever we were ready to get on the water. It was so convenient. The canal is extremely close to the public boat ramp, right on the ICW, and only minutes to the gulf. The water in the area is absolutely breathtaking.
The owners provided so many extras. There were 10 big beautiful beach towels, plenty of beach chairs, and lots of pool toys. Not having to bring those along when travelling is so helpful. There were also two kayaks and two paddle boards available for use.
The beaches on Longboat Key are absolutely breathtaking. We were able to walk to the public beach access from the house. While there was no general parking at the access, parking was close by. Also, a huge public beach, with picnic areas, Coquina Beach, is just a short drive over the bridge to Anna Marie island.
Thank you, Blythe, for sharing your home with us. We couldn't have asked for a better host.
Longboat Key Family Vacation 2019
Very cute cottage style house, in a great location on a canal. Easy access by boat to the Bay, and the Gulf. A boaters dream vacation! We brought our boat, so having dock space to use right out back was a great amenity for us! We enjoyed the blue herons company daily at the dock, whom we named 'Fred'!! He literally followed us in/out of the canal each day! The mangos & limes from the trees out back were delicious! We went fishing daily, dinner by boat, paddleboarding, kayaking, used the pool, enjoyed the hammock and the short walks to the quiet private white sand Gulf beach! The public beach is also just a short drive away as well (less than a few minutes). A dog friendly house is an understatement! The owners were very accommodating to our fur-babies! Provided a crate, and even dog towels! We had plenty of space for our family of 5, and ALL OF US had a wonderful vacation and look forward to visiting again.
We did have an incident near the end of our week ... we had fishing poles and some gear stolen from our boat, which was docked out back. This was OUR own fault for leaving them out... but we felt so safe we didn't even think about it! The owners responded quickly with reviewing security cameras for us, and guided us through filing a claim through the rental insurance. It is believed that the thieves came by boat in the night.
Restaurants we highly recommend: The Lazy Lobster, Mar Vista (waterfront..so good we went twice!), The Seafood Shack (waterfront) and The Bistro in Bradenton.
This is an A+++ property!
We will definitely return!
Close to beach, clean, private home. Beautiful view of canal! Enjoyed our stay!
We are thrilled that you had a wonderful visit. We hope you will return in the future. Best Wishes.
Great place to stay
Had a fabulous time. Great house. Great location. Extremely clean and maintained. Loved being able to dock the boat in the back on the canal. Definitely coming back to stay.
Our family had a wonderful time at this property. The pool was a wonderful addition to have; along with the access to the Bay. We rented a boat a couple of days and tide up to the dock. The home is clean and well stocked with towels, beach chairs and the essentials. The beach across the street is great!! Beautiful home & area!
