Longboat key is a great place to stay. The location of this house is perfect! It is in a great neighborhood and close to everything we wanted to do. This house has the potential to receive five stars. However, there are a few problems that need to be addressed before I can give …

"Perfect location..." Kevin, thank you for your suggestions. We are fortunate to be so close to the beach, in a beautiful neighborhood. I am always trying to make our house better. We had challenges with our last renter before your arrival. As we discussed already you were given a discount and we are updating things. Thank you again. I look forward to seeing you upon your return.

Roberts house is in a very quiet residential area on a lovely island with many beaches within a few miles. The house is a unique spanish style. The house does not seem to be lived in on an ongoing basis and therefor has some issues. The grounds are not particularly maintained as …

Thank you for your feedback for both appreciating our home and secluded beaches. We can not help your issues with the rainy weather, but we do have central air. Thus, you preferred to open the windows or slightly crack the windows which may have let the ants and the humid air in. As for the couple of light bulbs, we resolved the matter once you brought this to my attention. Again thank you.

Beautiful neighborhood. Very quiet and relaxed. Absolutely gorgeous home. Incredibly inspiring artwork, architecture, and furnishings. Private beach access at the top of / across the road. Publix / liquor / gas a five-ish minute drive. St. Armands is also very close by! Great …

Thank you for your kind remarks about your recent visit in our Beach/Canal Villa. I am delighted your appreciation detail impresses you. The Villa is a work of art made with love & inspiration from our travels. The Beach is a great amenity just to walk to daily for sunsets, shelling or yoga. Glad you made time to visit the Ringling Museum and our marvelous island restaurants. I look forward to welcoming you for your next visit. Robert

We booked in for a week in late December 2016. We liked the neighborhood and location, the openness of the layout and Robert was extremely communicative and helpful in situating us by phone and email. However, we were quite disappointed in the general lack of cleanliness an…

Thank you for taking the time to share your kind remarks and suggestions about your recent stay. I am delighted you especially enjoyed our location, neighborhood, & ambiance. You came just before Christmas & stayed over New Year's Eve; thus, our normal cleaning lady does immaculate cleaning but was out of town. I had another company come over to clean for you the following day, and thought we all made up for any inconvenience with all the wine, flowers, and chocolates for your stay. We recently purchased a new kingsize mattress and new comforters, linens etc. I did point out to you our garage was off limits as well as it contents which included the bikes. With all my phone calls with you, recommendations, and help, I am surprised you did not bring some of this up directly. Thank you again for sharing your feedback and sorry some of your expectations where not completely met. All my best!

We had a little snag in finding the Designers Villa because of missing an email with the phone number we needed to call to make contact as Robert was out of town. After all this settled in it was a beautiful quiet neighborhood that took our breath away. Although we did have a mi…

Robert was a very attentive host. He wanted to talk as soon as the reservation was confirmed, then on the day I arrived and the following day to make sure I had everything I needed. His second home is lovely. It is on a quiet street, just a few-minute walk from the beach. It …
