Our Blog

The magic is always in the details. At Florida Vacation Connection, we want you to have an unforgettable vacation complete with premium perks! When you embark on a Longboat Key or Lido Key vacation with us, you’ll enjoy extraordinary service and everything you need to make the most of your getaway. The following amenities are standard in our rental properties:

Swimming Pools

What’s better than cooling off in a private, pristine pool after a day in the hot Florida sun? Whether you stay on Longboat Key or Lido Key, you’ll be just steps away from your very own pool. During cooler months, you may elect to heat the pool (an additional fee will apply). 

All condominiums have heated pools. Many feature hot tubs, as well!

Fully-Equipped Kitchens

If you dream of whipping up a delicious dinner for your loved ones while you’re staying in one of our beautiful properties, you’re in luck! All of our kitchens are fully equipped with everything you need to entertain or to cook a lovely meal for two.

Bed & Bath Linens

When was the last time you got a perfect night of sleep? We know how important quality of rest is to our guests. That’s why we provide each of our rentals with high-quality bed linens. Plush bath towels, beach towels, hand towels, and washcloths are also provided. All linens are provided according to the property’s occupancy limit, so there’s always plenty for everyone!

Start-Up Supplies

You likely won’t have time to run to a store for essential supplies the second you arrive. The great news is that you won’t have to!

Each of our properties is stocked with a starter supply of the following: spice jar, dishwasher detergent, dish soap, paper towels, trash bags, laundry detergent, and toilet paper. You will also find small shampoos, conditioners, body washes, bath soaps, and a blowdryer.

Washers and Dryers

While staying at any of our Florida Vacation Connection properties, you will have access to washers and dryers within the home or condo. There are only a few without—in those cases, there is a community laundry room nearby for your convenience.

Utilities and Local Telephone Service

Basic utilities (including free, fast Wi-Fi) and local telephone service are included in your reservation.
