                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: My wife and kids love Longboat Key for the beaches, the sea life and the wonderful restaurants. When you are on the island your stress level drops and relaxation just seems to occur naturally.

                  Why the Owner Chose Cedars Tennis Resort:
                  There are peek a boo views of the beautiful gulf; you may walk to the pier as well as places to eat, as well as the pool and nature park.....no car needed.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We like to spend a day at the beach, followed by a swim in the pool, fresh tuna or mahi mahi on the grill and then catch the fiery red sunset over the gulf.
