Wonderful stay at a perfect situated place, 09/13/2009, By: Brenner family (Buerstadt, Germany) Our family of 4 (2 adults / 2 teen aged girls) had a wonderful stay at Club Longboat Beach & Tennis #131. The home had everything we needed even sheets and beach towels. The kitchen was fully equipped w/pots pans & appliances. Televisions in every bedroom and internet access. The location, just steps to the beach, was perfect. Home is tastefully decorated with all the amenities needed. The pool area is a fun gathering place. There are several restaurants from which to choose. It was a pleasure to deal with the very helpful owner. We would definitely recommend Longboat Beach & Tennis as a place to rent when vacationing in Florida.
Club Longboat Beach & Tennis Condo, 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).
