Every year, for the past four years, we have visiting the Veranda for the kids fall break. Every time we arrived we were impressed with cleanliness of the unit. We have never had a bad experience at the Veranda. If you are looking for a great place to stay while visiting Longboat Key, the Veranda is the place.

Place is dated. We are marriott owners. Very disappointed. Chocolate smear in fridge. Old disgusting carpet. No tv in 2nd bathroom. The cheapskates actually cut the kitchen sponge in half.Cant set thermostat lower than 70. When I asked for more beach towels had nerve to tell me to throw the ones I had in my unit washer. The beach is... More

I have visited many times and think the property is worth the price. The rooms have been upgraded in the last few years with new bathrooms and kitchens as well as new furniture in bedrooms and living areas. The property is well kept and always clean. There is a CVS and Publix right across the road which makes it VERY... More

We come to Veranda every year and are never disappointed. It is situated across the street from Publix and CVS, which is very convenient (especially if you forget little things or want to cook in). The water was mostly calm the week we were there and we enjoyed both the beach and the pool. I found hermit crabs, sand grabs... More

Memorable, collecting shells, feeding seagulls. Kids love sand on their feet. With Sarasota Airport nearby. The full-kitchen helped so we don't need to eat out much. We enjoy walking, sailing, and shell collecting, I did casual water paint the ocean while spending time near it.

The Veranda has been on Longboat Key since the 1980s but has been beautifully maintained and updated. Kitchen and baths are new and furnishings have been updated. The location is wonderful on mid-Key and close to a great Publix store within walking distance. Bicycle paths are up and down the Key and bikes are available free of charge. The pool... More

Our room was nice and clean and the amenities were fantastic. The area is nice. We rode bikes everywhere and Publix is right across the street. The pool is very nice also. The views are great. The only bad thing was the water activities director was rude to my family. There are two and the older guy was very helpful... More

Our stay in August was excellent in so many aspects. The accommodation is top-class, the building design intriguing and the staff very attentive and helpful. Units are most comfortable and spacious, the facilities thoughtfully arranged and nothing appears too much trouble for the staff. We didn't make use of all the facilities, but use of bicycles and tennis court are... More

Oh my gosh! Talk about a very relaxing vacation! I usually do family vacations. This is a wonderful place for families. It is a small property. Nothing fancy about it. However, that is what I personally like. Wonderful beach to walk on. We had the penthouse. The kitchen was way to small. We did manage with that. It became a... More

I was expecting a partial ocean view but my husband surprised me with full gulf view. When I say full, I mean pretty much every room has a view. We had 2 terraces, both being very large. Our room was on the 2nd floor over the hot tub and there was no problem with noise. The interior was very nicely... More
