Cedars West condo description

Come enjoy this beautiful beachfront condo!

Completely renovated and updated in 2010, this condo is located at the desirable north end of Longboat Key on one of the most beautiful beaches on the West Coast: white sand, shells, no crowds. The complex has only 56 units in four, 2-storey buildings; all units have their own private outside entrance. This unit is on the second floor where the ocean views are spectacular, including gorgeous sunsets. The condo is done in soothing beach colors (light yellow, blue, white and coral). The living area and master have mirrored walls, enhancing the views, and both open onto a large screened lanai. The living area has a queen sleeper sofa, love seat, chair and ottoman. There is a large TV with DVD. The dining has a table that will seat 10 and a buffet/server. There is colorful art throughout. The kitchen opens onto the dining area to give a light, open feeling. Everything in the kitchen is brand new: cabinets, granite counter tops, domed ceiling, sink, fridge, stove, microwave. There is a small den off the kitchen with a full size sleeper sofa and a closet with washer and dryer. Completely furbished, the kitchen has service for 12, many serving dishes and extra appliances including a Cuisinart and an electric wok. The master suite has a king bed, dresser and a flat screen TV. Open the sliding doors to listen to the ocean, or close the room-darkening blinds if you want to sleep late. There are both a dressing area and a bathroom with shower off the master suite as well as a walk-in closet. New cabinets and granite counters can be found in both bathrooms. The second bedroom has twin beds, a flat screen TV and its own complete bath. There is a small office off of the bedroom. The beachfront pool can be accessed from the beach or the parking area and there are 2 tennis courts across the street for the exclusive use by Cedars West residents and guests. A barbeque grill is available on site.

(Please note that the Cedars West Condominium Association does not permit rentals for fewer than TWO WEEKS).

Longboat Key is close to both Bradenton and Sarasota, one of the cultural centers of the West Coast. Activities abound for everyone. Nearby are fine and casual dining, golf, parasailing, diving, theater, movies, opera, night life. Kids can have fun at Jungle Gardens, Mote Marine or playing miniature golf. Go deep sea fishing and cook your catch in your newly redone kitchen. Plan a morning shopping in the upscale shops on St Armand's Circle and have lunch at the Colombia or another of St Armand's fine restaurants. Rent a bike or take the free trolley up to Bradenton Beach to have a beachfront meal. This is the place for you if you are looking for a relaxing and fun stay at the beach.

              Owner info

              About the owner: I am a retired college professor. I love to travel and have stayed at VRBO apartments myself. My focus is now on my family--especially my grandchildren.

              Why the Owner Chose Cedars West:
              My parents were one of the first owners at Cedars West and my family and I have been coming to Longboat Key since the 1970s. When I took over the condo in 2010 I decided to renovate it to make it as comfortable possible for both my children and grandchildren as well as for future renters.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              I have tried to create a comfortable beach atmosphere in the unit with all the amenities I could think of. My family and I use the unit periodically, and everything is new and of top quality. It is not just a rental, it is a home. I invite you to share a place that I love.
