We've been to this condo the past 5 years. It's great as well as staff Accommodations were well equipped , super clean and made you feel at home. Groceries were easily accessed but tucked away as not to take away from the view . Located right on the beach . Lot of great places to dine as well as things...

Great location, great price, great unit, great staff. I found this place when I saw dolphins video. Woohoo! Dolphins promoted this place, they got me! Very nice communications with the staff prior to our stay and during our stay. I spoke with Cindy on the phone and was told about everything I needed to know up front. Donna and Cindy...

We love the Beachcomber. We are going back for our fourth stay this October. Even though there are only two of us we've been booking a two bedroom for the beachfront gulf view. Everything you need to enjoy a beach vacation is there or close by. Longboat key is so relaxing and laid back or you can plunge in to...

PROS: The Beachcomber has a wonderful location, right on the beach, so you have great views (on one side of the bldg, get a 2BR!) and a great "commute" to the beach. The building is well maintained and you can tell management is on top of things. Our unit #302 was very, very clean, as was the entire building. The...

Ive spent most of my life on this beach on Longboat Key. My parents owned a condo next to the Beachcomber. So when they sold it, much to the families dismay, the only logical choice was to stay right next door. This is the 3rd time I've stayed at tbe Beachcomber. It's great for the fact that you really are...

My family and I stay here every year during Christmas break. You CANNOT beat the view from the Gulf front condos. The interior is well appointed, and exceptionally clean. The location is a block away from Publx and CVS, making it very convenient. There are plenty of chairs to be had at the pool as well as the beach.

Beautiful property. We were in a 1 bedroom/ 1 bath which are on the parking lot/street side of the building. The pool was crystal clear and warm. The staff couldn't have been any nicer or more helpful. The owners we met were lovely with wonderful tips about the area. And despite the ongoing construction during the day (which were warned...

We rented a two bedroom/2 bath condo in September 2015. Unit 608. The guest bathroom kept getting backed up. Management sent their maintenance person but the toilet still was backed up. They would not call a plumber. After our trip, I wrote to complain and they did not acknowledge at all. Would not stay here again.

Stayed here as a couple in a 2 bed/2 bath beachfront apartment. The apartment was even nicer than the pictures online. Spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. Right on the beach with amazing views. Extremely well managed property, can't recommend it highly enough
