Property description

LOVE THE BEACH? This is the spot for you!
2 night minimum. Be sure to read the reviews, and also check out the guest book comments, which are at the end of the 'Manager information' section. (I'm actually the owner, not the manager.) Fantastic unobstructed view of the beach and Gulf of Mexico from the unit and patio. Avoid the stairs and step right out onto the lovely patio to enjoy morning coffee or tea. Swim in the ocean or beachside pool, gather shells, watch for dolphins, play beach volleyball, make dinner on the grill, enjoy the beautiful sunsets! New (May 2015) remodeled kitchen includes breakfast bar and sleek barstools that swivel and adjust in height. Range, fridge, new microwave, new dishwasher. 40' flat screen TV & DVD player. Very comfortable (read the reviews!) king size bed + new twin sleeper sofabed in chocolate brown microfiber. New Italian porcelain tile throughout that looks like a cottage wood floor. Mirrored wall is restyled to look like windows, visually expanding the space and bringing the outside in. New toilet - 2 inches (?) higher, like in most hotels. Conveniently located near (but not too near!) the inviting beachside pool. Shared laundry. To make a reservation call SeaHorse directly 866-383-2417 or (for 3 nights or more) make reservation on-line at Select studio units, then select make reservations on line, choose #223, and book your dates. (If you have questions, feel free to contact me, Linda Adrian, the owner.)

Longer vacation? Check out another of our Longboat Key rental units, a 2 BR 2 bath condo at Banyan Bay Club, #103, ground floor unit right on the beach. 1 month minimum rental. Photos available upon request.

Like to try out Siesta Key? I closed Sept 2015 on a first floor efficiency unit just a few steps from Crescent Beach at Palm Bay Club. 3 day minimum rental. VRBO 762882

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: My husband and I are from the Chicago area, now retired and living full-time on Longboat Key, 10 minutes from this SeaHorse unit. We feel that we have discovered Paradise! We both play tennis several times a week. We also enjoy walking everywhere around this beautiful island and Sarasota. Other interests for me: family & friends of course, gardening, and the continuing challenge of bridge.

Why SeaHorse Beach Resort:
I bought this unit in December 2011 when I fell in love with the up-close-and-personal location on the beach. Wait until you see it. WOW !!!

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
I have made lots of changes since buying the unit to make it a relaxing and cheerful place for family, friends, and resort guests. Most recent rehab (kitchen) May 2015. Since I live on Longboat Key, I stop by SeaHorse a lot to do gardening around the complex. It's fun to see many familiar faces: owners and return guests.
