Check out what our visitors are saying about The Beachcomber.

The unit we rented was extremely comfortable. The kitchen was well equiped, so we were able to cook some delicious meals. The pool was warm and I used it everyday. It was nice to watch sunsets from the rear patio. My huband and I are planning to rent again next winter.
I would rate all the services on your form as excellent.
We located the Beachcomber though a posting on and through your web page.

Thank you for renting your condo to us. Your unit was very comfortable and inviting. We had a wonderful getaway and managed to make it home before the storm.

The Beachcomber was absolutely fantastic !! The was a special “girls getaway” for my mom (77 years young), my aunt (84 yrs young), my sister and myself. It was clean and decorated beautifully. The balcony spanned the length of the condo and it was awesome to watch the sunset every evening and to just sit out. The pool and pool area was great !! The beaches beautiful – even watched dolphins from the balcony. I was highly recommend the Beachcomber !! Thank you!

As far as I am concerned, LBK is heaven on earth. Wonderful beach, sand, and surf. The Beachcomber is cozy, comfortable, conveniently located, and an all around pleasure. We visit twice a year for at least two weeks each visit. We have stayed in other developments to our chagrin. We look forward to returning to The Beachcomber in the spring 2012

What a great place to spend a vacation. The grounds were beautiful as was the beach!!! Donna and Steve take alot of pride in what they do. We can’t wait to come back!!! What was also great was eveything you could need was already there. I can not say that about most places we have stayed. This place is a must stay!!!! Thanks for a great stay.

Dear Steve and Donna,
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you both for a very pleasant stay at the Beachcomber. After driving around the East Coast a couple of weeks it was nice to settle down in one place. We appreciated your friendly service at our arrival very much. We found the unit well maintained, everything worked. The weather was nice, and, coming from Norway, seeing the sun for a prolonged period is always nice. The only problem we had was a bit of noise from the workers installing the fire protection system our apartment.
Again, thank you for a pleasant stay, and we hope to return soon.

We stayed in Unit 506 in October 2011. We loved it, the unit was nice, the living room furniture was not as comfortable as another unit we’ve stayed in time and time before but it worked ok. Our favorite part about the Beachcomber is that it is most usually quiet and with the beach being private and right outside the door, it gives for a nice peaceful atmosphere, especially for those of us needing to unwind, from stressful jobs and such. We love the Beachcomber and will be back in 2012. Donna and Steve are awesome!, very accommodating.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Beachcomber, the facility is clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The beach is very beautiful and not very crowded. The sunsets are the most spectacular I have ever seen.

We had a great time and enjoyed our stay at the Beachcomber!!! I was impressed with the service when our air conditioning froze up. Everyone working in the office and working on the building were pleasant and very helpful. Thank you for making our vacation a memorable one and the sunsets were perfect!!!

My wife and I just got back to NJ and can’t wait to return. The unit was perfect, clean throughout, you could tell the owners really took the time to make sure everything was like your home away from home, it really was a beautiful unit. The resort itself was outstanding, the beach and pool area were spotless and the staff was working hard at keeping it that way. The area restaurants were good and we enjoyed all the shops at St. Armands circle.

My wife and I have stayed at the Beachcomber for many years now, it just keeps getting better and better. We have been to many locations around Florida, but we keep coming back to the Beachcomber. Steve and Donna do a wonderful job at keeping the property maintained to a very high standard. We love our stays at the Beachcomber an look forward to coming back for many more years.

My husband and I just returned from our vacation at the Beachcomber. This was our first REAL vacation in over 2 years. It was the most relaxing trip we have ever taken and the best way to stay. We absolutely loved everything about it! The price was very reasonable and the entire place was so clean and inviting. We spent the majority of every day at the beach and the pool. The Beachcomber is in a great location, the best of both worlds… the entire stay was so quiet and relaxing but you can go just a couple miles in either direction for shopping, dining, etc. and then have the luxury of coming back to peace and quiet. It was just what we needed and much better than I anticipated. We can’t wait to go back next year!

Great place…great vacation!
We stayed at this unit for a week… what a great experience! Neatly decorated, super well maintained, clean and well-equipped… amazing views..great decoration! We have absolutely no complaints about the apartment and/or the building… everything was just great, which helped ensure our great time. We are a family of 4 with 2 children ages 7 and 3. I thought by the end of the 7 days, we were going to be tired of the beach and sun… none of that…we couldn’t get enough of the good time we were having. My children cried when we left asking to stay. We also enjoyed the fact that they have an area where beach chairs, toys, floaters, etc are kept for guests use, so we didn’t have to worry about cleaning the sand to take them back to the apartment. The administrators were super nice. We had a problem with our credit card, which we solved very easily once we knew about it, but they didn’t give us a hard time nor they were hunting us down to ensure payment. They just left a note at the door, which we read once we came back from the beach and solve the problem first thing the next morning. The beach is very secluded with no public access… we’ll be back next summer!

Hi Donna,
Just wanted to thank you for being so nice to my daughter while we were at the Beachcomber the past 17 days. We very much enjoyed it there and it has immediately become our favorite after 11 previous visits to the Sarasota area. We hope unit 606 will be available next year for a return visit! Please pass on our thanks to the unit owners.

Thanks Steve and Donna for another great vacation at the Beachcomber. The place looks beautiful and my 30th year vacationing here was as special as ever. Have a great year and we will see you in 2012.
– Maria Nemerowicz and Family

Thank you Steve and Donna.We always enjoy our stay at the BeachComber! It is a great building, location and LBK experience. It is a well maintained property, although the unit we just stayed in could stand to have the carpets cleaned/replaced and the painting refreshed. The mattress was also on the soft side, but with the Gulf to wake up to, who is complaining.thanks again, we look forward to returning next year.

I want to let you know that we all enjoyed our stay at the Beachcomber very much. The beach was great, and the apartments were very well equipped and comfortable. You keep the property in pristine condition and run the complex in a very professional, and yet pleasant and friendly, manner. We will certainly try to rent at the Beachcomber at our next stay in the Sarasota area, and will recommend the place to our family and friends. I am sure my son, Victor, and my daughter-in-law’s parents, Tony and Dulce Berges, feel the same way (Apts. 406 and 605). Thank you for your courtesy and excellent service. Have a great summer.

“Hi, Steve & Donna ~ I’m sending this to you, as I’m not sure to what e-mail would be the most effective for “all” to see. I hope you don’t mind forwarding it to people who should know of the excellent treatment received there.

As I’m writing this to you, just heard that we may be getting anywhere from 2 to 5″ of snow, sleet. It’s not really bad here, but it doesn’t come close to the weather that I just left:(

Again, thank you for the nice memory.

I just love this picture I took:)

I have recently returned from a 12 day stay at Longboat Key and had a wonderful time staying at The Beachcomber.

Steve and Donna Zook were so accommodating and handled any request that was asked of them. The place, from top to bottom, was impeccable; and everything that we needed was there. If I needed anything, it was taken care of quickly.
Warm and smiling faces always greeted me.

I hope to return to The Beachcomber one day. This was my first time to Florida, and it certainly lived up to anything I could have imagined.”
