Romantic Get Away in Longboat Key
Posted Aug 12, 2016 on Hotels
From Pass de Grill, we passed the magnificent Sunshine Skyway, get your cameras to start video taping from the bottom to the other side, it's worth the toll fee to cross this. We stayed 3 days at Sandpiper Inn in LK beach. Greeted by Harold, owner of hotel and showed to our room by Ben, the property manager. The Inn is small, only 11 rooms I think of which 2 oceanfront room. But all the rooms are an easy walk to the almost private beach. You get to see local birds and pick local sea shells, the inn folder gives you the names of these. Stop by in the Publix on Route 19 and pick up your necesary meat and spices. The kitchen is fully equipped including microwave, stove, fridge, toaster, blender, knives, pots, anything you will ever need. Pets are allowed for $15 per day, and if there is pet damage, a fee of $50 applies for extra cleaning. We stayed in Room 201 and my husband and I enjoyed it tremendously. Beautiful sunset, warm water, perfect vacation. If you want to go shopping, St Armand's circle is a short drive away. The best thing about this place is NO SMOKING in the inn and beach area. Parking available on site. If you are a large noisy group, this is not the place for you. Pets not allowed on Longboat Key beach.
