“Great location; beautiful beaches; awesome owner”
Club Longboat is a wonderful development with excellent property managers. I stayed at Ed's condo from August thru October of 2014. Even during the 'low season', this area is just plain awesome. The beaches, pools, and fitness facilities are excellent. The grounds are well kept, safe, and inviting. Ed was outstanding to work with and really went the extra mile to make sure my stay was first rate. The condo is very spacious, well appointed, and very comfortable. It has nice views and everything you could possibly need. The Internet connection is reliable and fast if you need online access. Longboat Key is undoubtedly the best gulf island in the area and Club Longboat is one of the nicest communities on the island. I highly recommend this property and owner!
“A real bargain”
I leased the unit from Jan. 1, 2013 - Mar. 31. Upon entry the unit presents as being immaculately clean, well maintained and exceptionally well appointed. The 'U' shape floor plan makes the unit appear larger than the advertised sq. ft. and fascilitates privacy for all. The balcony off the living room affords a view of the Gulf waters and is a good place to take morning coffee or a cocktail at sundown. The den is surprisingly large and is good for 1 or 2 children because of the hide a bed and it can be completely closed off to make a private room. The kitchen is large and equipped to satisfy the most demanding cook. The lanai is a delight. Enclosed on 3 sides and fully screened on the fourth. Just a few steps from the kitchen and with the table and chairs, begs for al fresco dining. Being at the end of building 1, the unit is very convenient to the complex office, the adult swim pool/spa, libary, gym, mail boxes and lounge/bar. Nancy and Ed are the best landlords with which you will ever want to do business. They really do anything and everything to make your visit comfortable and enoyable. I felt like an honored guest in their home. The only problem I encountered was the large number of excellent restaurants on LBK. Gaining unwanted weight must be watched. If I was not already scheduled for the southern hemisphere in 2014, I would be leasing unit 131 again next winter.
“An excellent vacation property in a well managed community.”
This was our first ever internet booking of an overseas property, so we were a little cautious about the person we were dealing with.But we need not have worried because Ed Ledding was very patient and helpful, and gave us all the information we needed to establish his bona fide.He also assisted us with loads of information and pictures. The actual property closely matched the advertised details; indeed, it was a little larger than we expected it to be. All the equipment worked well, the washer and dryer set-up was particularly appreciated. The property is one unit in a community of possibly a hundred, or more, but we didn't feel crowded; although there were not a lot of people around whilst we were there. The maintenance staff do an excellent job of keeping the place looking good. The gardens, tennis courts, stairways and walkways are kept clean and tidy. The two swimming pools, and their waters were clean, and well cared for. However, both pools, and their surrounds are a bit on the smallish size, and could easily become too busy for comfort in high season. The beach is a comfortable 150 yards, or so, from the property. Club Longboat has a few dedicated sun loungers and umbrellas on the beach. Whilst we had no problems with the supply of these, there are not enough for the potential population of the units. Getting the rental and deposit money to the owners was a bit of a pain, as they are in the US and we are in the UK. It entailed arranging International Payments (Wire transfers ) through the respective banks; who, of course, charge for their services and hang onto the money for a few days whilst they make a little more lending it out to their markets.The transfers are,thus, not instantaneous - but they do work.The same thing happens when the damage deposit is returned to the renter. In summary then: we enjoyed the property and location very much. Ed Ledding was a joy to deal with and we would be happy to rent the property again.
“Wonderful stay at a perfect situated place”
Our family of 4 (2 adults / 2 teenaged girls)had a wonderful stay at Club Longboat Beach & Tennis. The home had everything we needed even sheets and beachtowels.The kitchen was fully equiped 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.
“A Little Bit of Paradise”
This was one of the absolute best vacations my family and I have ever had. The condo is beautiful, perfectly located to all amenities, very spacious,and comfortable. There was plenty of room for all of us. Accommodations are appropriate for all...from my 78 year old mother to my 5 year old niece. The beach is perfect with a good supply of lounge chairs and umbrellas. The location to area attractions is perfect. The owners are a delight to deal with and very, very helpful. I hope to stay again next year. My entire family loved staying at this condo.
