We have stayed on Longboat Key several times but first time at Las Hermanas. This is a small 4 unit building. We stayed in unit 3. It is a well maintained and updated unit. It had a very cozy feeling. There is a nice living room with a flat screen TV. The kitchen is nice and well equipped with everything you need. There is no dishwasher, and you have to wash the dishes before you check out. The bedroom has a very comfortable king sized bed, but no TV, however, that did not bother us. There is a room on the back of the unit that looked to have been a patio at one time that had been redone into a sunroom. We used this room several times when it rained. Outside is a nice area with a table and umbrella. The beach is only a few steps away from the patio. There are some small dunes and sea oats that separate the unit and the beach. The sunsets were spectacular right from the patio. We were the only tenants in the entire complex for the week we stayed until the last day. This was a plus due to the fact that the outdoor patio is open and not much privacy from the adjoining units. We like to spend as much time as possible outside and loved the outdoor table, but the day the neighbors arrived, we felt like we and they had little privacy outside. This is the only reason I am giving the unit 4 stars instead of 5. Also, if you are looking for a pool, this is not the place. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay here and would go back.
We wanted to rent a place with an ocean view in a more relaxing (peaceful) place. We arrived to find our rental had a nice updated cottage feel. Plenty of things to do on Longboat Key. We will definitely return!
