    3/5

    This property needs work. The location is great and I am quite familiar with LBK. the screen door to the lanai doesn’t open properly and sticks, one side of the mattress is worn out, the kitchen is lacking in utensils and dishes. I’m not sure why there is a lounge chair on the lanai it takes up space and the sun doesn’t shine there so no lounger is needed, a small table with a couple chairs would be better. Overall the furniture is old and dated. The free umbrellas that I assume have been left by other renters are in bad shape and the beach loungers are also In rough shape. The pool was out of service until the last couple of days we were there and even after it was able to be used they “forgot” to turn on the heater. Would not recommend and will not use again.

    Manager's Response:

    We want all of our guests to rest easy when they stay with us, and we're sorry that you experienced some issues during your trip. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:

    Brenda, thank you for staying with us. The screen doors are new, yet we will check it to make sure it works properly. We will also look at the mattress. Guests tend to take our utensils out to to beach or barbecue area and they do not make it back to the house; either being thrown away or misplaced. We purchased additional utensils and pans to better accommodate our guests during their stay.
    We do not have a lounge chair on our lanai. We will check that out, because sometimes guest take them from the pool area, which is very close to the unit and bring them into the lanai.

    The association is responsible for the free umbrellas and chair lounges, including the pool which we do not have control over. This was right after the Hurricane and there where damages to the outside furniture and the pool pump went out and the next day they found out the pool heater had gone out as well. All of this was repaired but it took a few days just trying to get contractors out to fix things just after a Hurricane.

    We apologize for the inconvenience but the Hurricane did cause issues for a lot of guest. Thank you for bringing these things to our attention.

  • Super convenient location to pool and beach!

    5/5

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here being only a few steps from the pool and a few more to the beach. We swam in the pool, at the beach, used the chairs and provided umbrellas, played shuffleboard, mini golf, and used the on site washer and dryer. Loved having the screened porch to throw our stuff into when coming back from the beach. Only wishlist item would be for there to be a key lock accessible on the porch so that you don’t have to walk through the front door in wet swimsuits. We didn’t feel comfortable just leaving the sliding door to the patio unlocked all day. Loved that there weren’t a ton of units and we always found a good spot on the beach. The unit did feel clean for the most part. Floors were a bit sandy when we first got there but we asked to check in early so cleaning may have been rushed on our behalf. Also some black spots in the bathroom shower that probably need a toothbrush taken to with bleach. But overall it was just perfect for us. Nothing Fancy, but we weren’t looking for fancy either. Also felt like the property grounds were kept up and always Looked nice. Management super responsive via phone and text for whatever we needed. Which was greatly appreciated. Would stay here again in the future!

  • Excellent location just steps from the beach.

    5/5

    This property may be an older property, but it was a very pleasant place to stay. The pool was right outside of our door and the beach was just steps away. The condo came equipped with everything we needed. We will definitely stay there again next year.

  • Great quiet getaway spot!

    4/5

    Proximity to pool/beach can’t be beat! Walk out the door and you’re at the pool, a few shorts stairs and you’re at the beach. We’re very glad that we decided to rent a car, otherwise we’d have had to make do with the little convince shop and few restaurants within walking distance. While the furnishings within the condo could use some updating, we didn’t mind too much. However, it would have been nice to have better bed/linens to fall into after a day outside. Overall, we loved the time we spent at Silver Sands and we’re already planning coming back with our kiddos.

  • Outdoor Oasis!

    4/5

    The condo itself was pretty basic & simple. Nothing ostentatious & was a place to sleep & shower. We rented this unit for the pool & to have immediate access to the beach with lounge chairs & umbrellas. Being able to avoid busy public beach traffic was AMAZING! We loved rolling out of bed (which I found really comfortable), throwing on a bathing suit, and being in the waves. Will likely return if we visit Longboat Key again.
