Description of the Longboat Key vacation condo rental
The park has won a number of awards, including the “1998 Outstanding Ecosystem Restoration Award” from the Florida Urban Forestry Council, the “Public Landscape Award” from the Keep Manatee Beautiful organization, and the “Image Manatee Beautification Award” from the Manatee County Chamber of Commerce.

Minutes from the beach, seconds from the park and on a canal that connects directly into the bay you won't miss a thing except the rat race.

Lovely Longboat Key Getaway
July 31, 2012
Our stay could not have been more wonderful. Everything we could need was available in the unit. We found it very nice and clean, and even though our unit faced the street we could see the sunrise on the bay side from our balcony. There are plenty of tables both on the patio and in the lobby area and we had guests one night (another couple) and enjoyed eating in the enclosed lobby and watching the sunset. Never used the pool but it was always clean. Appreciated the chaise lounges. The staff was very helpful with any questions that we had. In addition to the basics our unit had a nice assortment of movies on DVD and a library to suit just about any taste in reading. There were also a lot of books in the lobby. We can't wait to go back again to enjoy the sun and surf from sunrise to sunset!

A Slice of Heaven

A wonderful tranquil location on Longboat Key. The condo was charming, clean and perfectly located on the island. We were able to personally meet the owners, they were a true delight and care deeply for the best stay possibly. We were fortunate to meet then and honored to have some new friends. Mike and Maria

There was a bit of a mix-up on the directions to the condo, but once we arrived, all of our stress disappeared. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed. The neighbors were very friendly but not obtrusive. Little disappointed that the beach wasn't exactly across the street, it was there, but we had no access, had to go a mile down the road or so. Perhaps we envisioned it differently. We enjoyed the fish jumping out of the water in the canal, very relaxing. The bathroom was in the bedroom (with a sliding door naturally) but wish it wasn't there, the toilet every few minutes would run for 30 seconds or so. We didn't report it, although if we had, I'm sure it would have been taken care of quickly. We didn't want to bother anyone. The week went by much too quickly. I would recommend the condo to a friend.

Honestly, we didn't think we were 'snow birds', at least not the kind that settled in one spot. We usually flitted around in Costa Rica, Mexico, or spots in Europe. But we were so truly pleasantly surprised by our stay at #2, 707 St. Judes! It was peaceful, quiet and the neighbours helpful, yet unobtrusive. The area was perfect for cycling, walking and close enough to other areas to explore. Beaches....well, lots of them and each and every one better than the next. I think we've found a piece of paradise. Thanks, Terry and Patti, for making it a home away from home.
Thank you for your kind words. Patti and take our guest experience very personally. It is our ultimate goal to assist in creating warm lasting memories. Your comments are greatly appreciated and taken to heart. Let us know how we can improve guest experience.
Welcome to the St. judes Family.

A wonder winter vacation on LBK
April 22, 2011
This was a first time on LBK and the area exceeded our expectations. The condo was reasonably priced and a good value for our limited needs. I had a number of contacts with the owner Terry, and he was always very friendly and helpful. The condo is located on a private street next to the beautiful Durante nature park and across the street from miles of public beach on the Gulf of Mexico where we spent evenings walking, meetings visitors and watching exotic birds and gorgeous sunsets. The condo is a clean, well- maintained and furnished one bedroom unit which met our needs for a home base. We met friendly neighbors who were welcoming and helpful in orienting us to the area. The condo is centrally located on LBK and there are a variety of restaurants on the island and many more at St. Armands Circle and in Sarasota. There is also a Publix market, library, public tennis courts down the road and opportunities for fitness, pool and tennis at the Cedars on the next street. Overall, we had a great time and would highly recommend both LBK and the condo at 707 St. Judes.
Owner Supplied Testimonials
"Hi Terry and Patti, We've arrived and settled in at 707 S. St Judes Dr. and couldn't be happier. What a comfortable spot- it felt like home right away! We're slowly getting to know the neighbourhood and have walked the beach at sunset and the Joan Durante park at daybreak. Couldn't ask for anything more. We truely feel like we've found a home away from home.
The only complaint I have about our stay at St. Judes is that it was only for one week. That was just long enough to get the feel for the area. Next year we hope to stay longer.
The beach was perfect. The Park walks in the A.M. out to the bay were dreamy. The condo was clean and very comfortable. Thanks. See you next year
Enjoyed our stay tremendously. Very quiet to be so close to everything. The nature preserve was excellent for morning and evening walks to the bay after a great day on the beach.
Thanks for every thing. Never want to leave but real life beckons
