Beautiful vacation on the sands of the Gulf
Very easy to communicate with. Property and location to everything was great.
Everything you’d want for a stay on the beach
This is our second year staying at the Historic Beach House. We loved it! The house is well appointed and the location is excellent. We enjoyed walks on the beach, bike rides, grilling out and reading in the lanai. It was very relaxing!
The management company was responsive with any requests we had.
After staying here for two years, I have a couple suggestions: The tv speakers are not the greatest. While one may say you don’t need the tv when you are at the beach, we enjoy a good movie at night after sunset. I would recommend that the owner purchases a sound bar or the renter brings a speaker to connect. Lastly, it was irritating that people were always sitting in the beach chairs that are part of this property. After several days of watching the chairs be continually used by strangers, we actually purchased a no trespassing sign (that worked some), but what helped the most to keep people away was to hang a towel or two off of the deck. My best guess is that the tinting on the glass makes it hard for people to tell that the house is occupied, but hanging the towels on the deck is a possible frustration free solution.
Perfectly situated old school beach house
The Beach House is on the sugar white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. Sitting on the screened porch watching heron, osprey and pelicans while enjoying cool breezes is heavenly. Dolphins came by regularly, once just 15 feet from the beach. There are awesome beach chairs, 2 sea kayaks, and beach toys for your use (the kayaks do need new paddles).
Directly across the street is Bayfront park where you can play tennis, pickle ball, basketball, and shuffleboard for free. Kayaks are available for rent as well.
There is a grocery store 5 minutes away and the best food we had all week was at Harry’s which is also 5 minutes away.
This is perfect for one family or 2 couples looking for a truly wonderful Spring Break!
Thank you for your wonderful review! Sounds like you have a fantastic Spring Break. We can't wait to welcome you back in the near future!
The Long Boat Key 'Beach House' was Amazing
We had a great time with my family of 5 staying at the Beach House on Spring Break last week. It's the perfect location on the beach with fantastic views of the ocean . The house has a screened in deck that is a great spot to watch sunsets. We had some friends come over to watch a sunset on the deck. The deck is huge and can comfortably fit 10 to 12. The inside of the house is very well maintained. All of the furniture, appliances and beds are first class. The kitchen and main living room is open and spacious. We have 3 kids ages 17, 14 and 11 that slept in the 2nd bedroom. You can partition the room dividing it with a sliding door to comfortably sleep 3 to 4. The beach is your back yard basically. We can't wait to go back. My wife and kids loved it.
Is a beautiful place were you feel like home
The Beach House is a great place to spend your vacation, sand, sea and a house full of amenities but mostly tranquility. Location is perfect, the beach is right there and is mostly all to yourself. The house is a very typical beach house but it features all the commodities of today's world. Fantastically kept and maintained you will spend all the time there, as you do not need to do anuthing but relax and enjoy your time at the beac.
Thank you so much for a excellent review of your stay at our Beach House. We enjoyed having you as our guests. We can't wait to welcome you back in the near future!
