Covert III condo description

Beautiful Gulf views from this Longboat Key Condo, only 10 steps to the beach with unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico. Two bedroom, 2 bath condo with access to the Gulf of Mexico, Tennis Court, and pool. Newly remodeled and has everything for a wonderful vacation. 46 inch flat screen HDTV. Large enclosed patio to watch the spectacular sunsets from.

As long and picturesque as its name suggests, Longboat Key's manicured lawns, sugar white beaches, dazzling sunsets and year-round warm, crystal turquoise waters are visions of understated pleasure.

Enjoy breathtaking views of Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Island living at its finest. World famous powdery white sand beaches are just 50 feet from your patio door.

The area is appreciated by wildlife as well, so these waters are home to manatee, dolphins, and fish, while pelicans, osprey, and a variety of shorebirds find sanctuary here. Tennis and golf enthusiasts will find first-class facilities here, and there are several parks on the Keys to visit for a relaxing afternoon.

Whether you like to spend your time shelling, biking, shopping, fishing, golfing, or dining, opportunities for these activities are boundless on Longboat Key.

Disney World and all its attractions are a mere 90 miles away, making a day trip to the Magic Kingdom possible.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1975

                  About the owner: My parents bought this condo before it was built in 1975. I have spent every vacation since on this wonderful island. Its very peaceful and my way of escaping the grind of everyday life.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Near private beaches. LBK is all vacation homes, so not many people on the beach on any given day. Seafood caught that day. See locations of Cortez Seafood and Star Fish Seafood. About a 15 minute drive from the condo.
