Welcome to Paradise: Charming Condo with Spectacular Views
Longboat Key Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Paradise indeed!

  • 5 of 5
This condo is equipped with everything you could wish for, and more! -- there was nothing we needed or wanted, that we could not find. Renters are supplied with an exhaustive amount of information about the condo and the complex, which is very well maintained. Others have commented on the pools, beach, and tennis court (literally right outside the door), all of which we enjoyed -- we need not repeat what they have said about the pleasures of watching birds from the lanai, etc.
The complex also has a daily morning exercise class, book group, etc.
Longboat Key has several nice restaurants, but Sarasota has even more, as well as art shows, theatre, a symphony, and ballet.
The owners are very helpful and communicate promptly to make one's experience a pleasure.

Natural Paradise

  • 5 of 5
we have spent six week in spring 2013 in this condo where we have had a wonderful time. The view from the condo onto the bay was just breathtaking. Interested in watching the nature wildlife it was just marvelous to watch dolphins hunting in the bay, manatees playing around and rays swimming just in front of the condo. Not forgetting all the different birds we saw every day flying over the water. Every day we were enjoying our time sitting on the balcony and watching the nature. We can recommend this condo for everybody who likes to watch the animal wildlife in their natural habitat. Otherwise you would have to go to the zoo but in this condo you can get this unique experience just on the balcony.

The condo is located in a nice resort with lots of friendly people. The condo is quiet, sunny, nicely furnished and has large windows. What we also appreciated is the private beach just across the street on the gulf coast. On weekends sometimes the nice public beaches are crowded so we preferred to relax on this private beach on Saturdays and Sundays. The owners were very helpful and made our stay an unforgettable one.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 4 of 5
We had a most pleasant three months stay at this lovely condo. Our holiday was tops, the panoramic view of the bay from the condo offering days of watching dolphins jumping in the water or evenings where Manatees gathered right under our windows, a unique experience we have not seen elsewhere on Longboat Key. It is truly a special place to stay with everything so handy, the lanai doubling up as a second living room, many emenities in the Longboat Harbour itself, long pleasant walks and friendly neigbours. The beach, of course, was a favorite with my family and so easy to get to, again with all the necessary emenities. We had many swims in the Gulf most days and when the water was too cold, there was always the choice of pools, one right next to our building.
I was particularly impressed with the owners attention, organization and friendly help in all matters and their determination to make our stay pleasant. We are certainly planning to come back.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5
This property was perfect! Lots of space to relax both inside and out. We often had the pool to ourselves,and the beach was spectacular.

All of our grocery shopping needs were within 5-10 minutes, with antiques, specalty shops, an outlet mall,and cafes within 15-30 minutes. The restaurants were also good, with enough variety and the prices were reasonable.

We are active people, so enjoyed tennis, cycling, and daily morning walks around the boardwalk right on the property!

Swimming in the gulf was fantastic - we don't generally enjoy ocean swimming, but the Gulf was warmer, and very clean, with soft sand. We saw dolphins out farther every few days.

The owners were very helpful in helping us plan our vacation, and the place was very clean and had everything we needed. We will definetly be back!~

We were 3 month renters of B306 for 5 years. It is most attractive and comfortably furnished. Being an end unit it has wonderful light with outstanding wide water views of Sarasota Bay. The owners are wonderful

The BBQ, bicycle shed, tennis court, library and gym (with sauna) were all a real plus for us, as was the Beach House for storing our beach chairs and umbrella. We loved it all!

The close proximity to the lovely city of Sarasota, with it's variety of theatre, galleries, restaurants and shops, is an outstanding contrast to life on Longboat Key........We would still be there had we not purchased our own condo.
