What delightful accomodations!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was simply wonderful. The condo was comfortable, beautifully decorated and stocked, as if our every need had been anticipated and met. Covert I is centrally located on Long Boat Key, with tempting restaurants in walking distance. In addition, one can also walk or bike to local stores for groceries and shopping; there is even an Urgent Care office nearby, in the event it is needed. For those who choose, they may stroll down the beach, or enjoy nature in the nearby park. A good time is sure to be enjoyed by all while staying here!

Lovely homely condo in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We have been staying at covert 1 for the past few years and always look forward to returning to paradise. The accommodation is great - home from home. The pool is very inviting and the amenities are great. Very near to fantastic restaurants. Just a short drive to Shopping in Armand Circle, and activities in the area. A beautiful natural beach just a short walk across the road. What more could you ask for! Paradise.

lovely and quiet

  • 5 of 5
We SO enjoyed our stay in this condo. It had everything we needed for a week-long beach oriented stay. The area was quiet and lovely - our neighbors friendly and helpful. The pool and courtyard are beautiful. The beach was only a three minute walk from our door. We enjoyed biking, walking, jogging, shelling and sunning! Sarasota shopping and attractions are a within a half-hour to 45 minutes drive. We felt right at home and wish we could have stayed longer!

Walkers, bikers and rollerbladers can tour Longboat's bike path, winding 10 miles along Gulf of Mexico Drive. Or relax! Take a romantic stroll on one of the finest beaches to be found.

Fishing off dock in bay. Nearby is golf, biking, shopping, restaurants, wildlife viewing, sightseeing, parasailing, and lots of shelling.
