Amazing place to stay right on the beach. Very clean and true old Florida feel. It's the perfect beach getaway if you truly want to get away. The Bushman's, property management, are wonderful and do a superb job!
We loved the rules because they keep the integrity of the property in check. We booked a second trip while on this trip and I have never done that. That is how much we enjoyed the overall ambience of this property. We will be bringing our kids but know it will be fine. There were kids staying when we were there and everything was great. You just have to respect the property.
Overall a great relaxing paradise on Longboat key.
Thank you.

We are very thankful for your review of Sea Club. We try to make sure that Sea Club is a very family oriented property, as you are now aware. We look forward to seeing you again with the children.
See you soon -

No beach towels, no condiments of any kind, had to drag chair 40 yards to beach and back, air conditioning (loud) no maid service, bed like sleeping on plywood. Way over priced. Oh, traffic started at 730 am.

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. The beach chairs must be pulled up to holding area, due to turtle season and Longboat Key Ordinance - nothing can be left on the beach. It is hard to make sure all guests have the bed comfort they prefer, unlike your personal home. I agree, we do have firm mattresses because in the rental industry, they last longer. We encourage guests to make management aware of their complaints in order to be able to take care of them, and we did not receive any complaints from this guest - their reviews are the first we heard of these issues. Unfortunately, we can't control the traffic. We are an older property, but well maintained. Property was built in the late 50's and there are very few "Old Florida" properties left on Longboat Key - unfortunately, not every property is suitable to everyone, but there are a lot of people who still enjoy the "Old Florida Feel."

This was the second time we have stayed at Sea Club 1, and it was perfect for us. The 2 bedroom unit was right on the beach, well maintained and lovely and peaceful. The whole site is well looked after, with lots of chairs and loungers to use on the beach. The pool area is also clean and tidy and the water lovely and warm! We thoroughly enjoyed staying here, and being steps from the beautiful beach was fantastic for our family (2 adults and one 5 year old). The manager (Chris) was incredibly helpful in arranging our reservation. We can't fault this place and look forward to returning soon.

We decided to stay here due to all positive comments and feedbacks wrote everywhere. We can confirm all the good things said. Quiet, clean, peaceful, just a few steps to the sea. Christine, the manager, was incredible nice and helpful. We just have good memories and defenetly we'll come back again.

We booked Sea Club I sight unseen using Trip advisor reviews. The reviews perfectly described this cute little family friendly vacation spot right on the beach at Lomgboat Key. We are a family of 9; two grandparents, two daughters with spouses and three children. We booked one 2 bedroom apartment type unit, one 1 bedroom unit apartment and one studio unit. Chris the on sight manager assisted with the reservations. She knew exactly what would work for our family. Sea Club I although an older place is well maintained, we had unit 46 the Studio and we loved it with its king bed, nice patio and lovely view of the Gulf and pool. Our children and grandchildren liked their units with steps to the beach and pool. The grilling area was clean, green and the grills were in perfect order, cleaned every day. Sea Club I is a little gem. We will certainly be back.

Room Tip: U shaped property. Suites are on two levels with very nice views middle to right end of building as it faces the water.
