This condo was the perfect place for our vacation. Thank you to the owner, Dave, Weiland who was very personable and helpful. This condo was the best as far as the comfort, views, the beach, and ocean. We only had to bring what we needed to wear, our toiletries, and sun block. We did not need to check any luggage--just had our carry-on bags. A few nights we grilled on the gas grills provided and didn't even have to leave the beach. The water looked like the Caribbean. We preferred this laid-back atmosphere on Longboat Key compared to some of the neighboring islands but loved exploring them. It was comforting to return "home" if we left the island. There are miles of beaches and public access areas where you can park your car or bike and explore. On our last day we saw a manatee at the far tip of the island which was our jewel for the day. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: The views from this 4th floor condo were awesome. It was a corner unit, so we had views to up the coastline toward the southeast, south and west. Incredible!

Oh wow, the Turtle Crawl Inn is such a find! The condo offered a walk-in closet, comfortable beds, and fresh linens. Overall, the condo was clean and decorated with a colorful beach motif. Full kitchen, utensils, cookware, everything you could possibly need. And if that's not enough, the view of the beach and the sound of the waves directly off your private balcony would make anyone smile from ear to ear. You are literally steps away from the beach and comfy lounge chairs were provided too! If you want to get out of the warm sunshine for awhile, there's a covered cabana with tables and a picnic area as well; right on the beach. The condo is conveniently located between St. Armands and Bradendon Beach; so terrific restaurants, awesome shopping, night life, and Publix are all within very close proximity. Angel and her staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We will be back!

The condo was very spacious and clean. Location was excellent, close to some shops, restaurants and the beach was just outside our back sliding door beyond a grass area. There is a Publix nearby as well. Angel was very sweet and helpful! The only thing that I can suggest is that they have room darkening curtains or different blinds in the bedroom.

Room Tip: Room 104 was on the bottom floor. Nice to sit on the patio and look at the beach.

Angel Puckett of Angel's Vacation Rentals suggested we take a look at Turtle Crawl Inn Resort (turtlecrawlinnresort.com). This complex is located on the gulf side of the island and offers a variety of units. We had friends coming in for the week and needed an extra bedroom. We found the perfect unit for our stay - a stand alone house with two bedrooms, a large living room, dining room, a fully equipped kitchen and screened-in lanai. The heated swimming pool was about five steps out our back door. Just past the pool was a barbeque area with gas grills and a covered gazebo. The complex was lush and tropical with laundry facilities and also had a shuffleboard court. The beach area was just past the pool and set up with lounge chairs for relaxing all day and enjoying beautiful sunsets.
There is a brand new Publix located only a couple of miles from the resort. The island is very bicycle friendly and there are bicycle lanes the whole length of the island. There are several parks with trails for bicycling and hiking.

Dave, the owner of unit 401 has made certain his guests' experience is first rate. The unit is wonderfully decorated, has exceptionally nice furnishings as well as everything you need for a pleasant stay. The view of the Gulf spans the entire wall of the spacious living space ensuring great morning coffee time and spectacular sunsets. The owner is professional, accessible, and helpful. The unit is ideal for a couple looking for a nice get away in a lovely setting.

Room Tip: Renting unit 401 ensures personal attention by the owner.
