Serene, beautiful and private

  • 5 of 5

This home and property certainly live up to the description on VRBO.

As our vacation started and we turned into the drive with high expectations, we smiled as the tennis court welcomed us and the long driveway led us up to the house. The landscaping provided a cool walkway to the front door and when we entered the the stairs led up to the living area where a stunning view of the pool and bay are visible from every room.

The kitchen is lovely and many meals were enjoyed while preparing them and then just looking out to a shimmering pool and bay, watching the Florida birds, Cormorants and dolphins.

The house was immaculate, well decorated and comfortable! Everything was well marked, ie: light switches and even shelves where the dishes are stored. The Internet was secure and fast. I think our favorite thing was waking up to the sunrise happening right from our comfy bed. What a great way to wake up!

We loved the pool, and it was well maintained. All of the help that we met couldn’t have been nicer, from the maintenance people to the cleaning crew, landscapers and pool team.

Carlos checked in with us several times as did the property manager. All of the help reflects the personality and caring of the owner. They all love Carlos.

The home is well stocked and the practically private gorgeous beach is no more than a 5 minute walk. On crowded day we may have seen 20 people!

This was a special vacation for us and we only hope that one day we can return.

The only con about this property I saw was having to leave it! Like the property manager told me... her husband hands people a towel when they leave because they’ll be crying!

This beautiful, spacious, well-appointed home is a gem. It's well back from the street, quiet and serene, with lovely views of the bay. We loved sitting on the deck, overlooking the water, watching the boats come and go while a group of egrets watched us from a nearby tree.

The house has a heated pool, its own tennis court, and a dock! We're still talking about the kitchen -- Sub-Zero fridge, secondary fridge in the island, sink, prep sink, your choice of coffee makers, dishwashers, and an eight-burner Viking stove -- about the size of the Starship Enterprise -- that spans the entire back wall of the kitchen. And it had one of those faucets over the stove to fill pasta/lobster pots!

The master bedroom, with its beautiful views and sitting area, is something to see.

This is our second year staying in one of this owner's properties. When I tell folks how responsive and easy-to-deal-with Carlos is, I use an anecdote from last year: Our ice maker didn't work. Carlos gave us a new refrigerator. He and his staff make sure everything is more than perfect.

We've already booked for next year.

Property was beautiful.owner easy to work with. Caretaker, not so much

  • 4 of 5

The property was as described and met all our expectations. Our only critique would be that many things needed maintenance and upgrading. Many light bulbs were out so weren't checked before we checked in. Having someone come to greet us and show us around would have been helpful. There were many things that needed explanations on how to work. One big issue was when we lost total internet and cable for over 24 hours and when I called the caretaker she basically told me I was on my own. I had to make phone calls, etc. Owner out of touch for several hours and he needed to give Comcast his account number to approve a support visit to the house. Caretaker should have had that info. My husband was away so I was alone overnight with only my kindle to keep me company. When my husband tried to call caretaker one time that night her husband yelled at him and hung up on him. No apologies later from caretaker nor owner. Very disappointing. All in all though the property was well worth it.

So relaxing and welcoming! Perfection on Longboat key!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year staying at this palatial home and it was wonderful as always. The house was stocked with towels (beach and shower), toiletries, property management staff was 5 min away in case we needed anything. Views are amazing, pool was wonderful and refreshing, boat dock was easily accessible. Unbelievable gourmet kitchen, spa shower and tub in the master. Can't wait to come back next year!!
