We stayed in unit 605 and could not be happier! The unit has nice furnishings and everything you need. This condo was super clean and being on the 6th floor offered a nice view of the island and bay. The building is right on the beach! You literally walk out the door and you are at the pool and beach....

We stayed at the Beachcomber at the beginning of June 2012. The complex was beautiful and our one bedroom condo was very nice, spacious, and had everything we needed. As for the last posting under “bad bathrooms”, I do not agree with this review. I saw Beachcomber website pictures for 20+ units before I booked and most condos showed bathroom...

When we arrived the first thing I noticed was someone up on a balcony cleaning. In fact, we found everything clean and in good working order and each time we passed through the lobby there was always someone tidying something up. The staff could not have been nicer. The unit was well equipped, kitchen and bathroom, immaculate, plenty of bath...

We stayed in unit 504, new kitchen counter tops, new tile floors and tile on walls. With the beach view we felt like we were on a cruise ship with a balcony. Very clean unit as well. Overall a wonderful vacation, the staff was quite pleasent and very helpful.

We stayed in room 401 - it was gorgeous and extremely comfortable. We had a 6 yr old and a 18mos old and the amenities worked out just fine. (We rented a playpen from a local vacation rental companyfor the 18mos old). With two small kids, having pool and beach right at your door is priceless! There is shopping within...

Stayed in Unit #602. 2Bdr, 2- half baths and a shared shower area between. There is not a lot of extra floor space, so things can be a bit snug for a family of four, but it had a great balcony overlooking the beach. The pool had plenty of chairs available. There are also beach chairs available to bring down...

My family began staying at The Beachcomber in the '80's while I was in high school. We took yearly vacations (last week of May) to Longboat Key for over 15 years, staying at The Beachcomber every time. It is a small 5 story complex with 20 (two bedroom-one bath, shared tub/shower but separate vanities and toilets) gulf facing condos and...
