Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: We fell in love with Longboat Key on our first visit over a decade ago, and came back the next year to buy our own place. We discovered that we didn't miss the grey sky and cold winter of Chicago. Years later, we are now retired and live full-time on the island. We bought this wonderful unit at Banyan Bay for our own enjoyment (we call it our 'Northern home' although it's only 10 minutes away) and to serve as overflow for visiting family members. We also have many regular renters but would welcome your inquiry re: specific dates. I month minimum.
Why the Owner Chose Banyan Bay Club: We had been looking for property for some time but nothing really 'grabbed' us. When we walked into this open house all we needed to see was the wonderful view of the Gulf of Mexico. Although we did some 'flipping' of other properties back when property values on Longboat were going up 30% a year, this is the one we can't part with.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: One of the 8 units directly on the beach in this 44-unit complex.
