The spacious living room includes a Queen sized sleeper sofa for two more guests. Additional updated amenities of this unit include a modern kitchen with granite counter-tops, tile floors throughout the unit, Tommy Bahama style decor and a private lanai overlooking the Gulf. Guests may also enjoy the upgraded amenity of LCD flat-screen TV's in both the living room (DVD player available) and master bedroom. Unit #4 includes wireless internet for access to the world outside of paradise. The full-size kitchen includes everything you need to make meals, and a large grill is right down the stairs. The property boasts a heated community pool with wireless internet access, community hot tub, and an on-site office across the street on the bay side. Guests have access to a complimentary computer & printer in the office during office hours. There are also shared boat docks (available on a first-come, first-served basis, a 26' boat limit, and guest is responsible to find off-site parking for boat trailer), and a tennis court (at neighboring property Longboat Landing). Complimentary laundry facilities are right down the stairs from Unit #4.

Beach Castle Resort is a quiet, 21-unit condominium resort midway on the exclusive island of Longboat Key with a variety of views including Gulf front, Bay front, pool and garden views. The property's landscaping is lush and scrupulously maintained. The sunshine-colored buildings are accented with Bahama-style shutters and railings. The parking lot is right down the stairs, but if you choose to skip the rental car, there is a trolley service available on the island.

          Car: Recommended

          Located in the middle of serene Longboat Key, Beach Castle Resort is the perfect place to get away from it all and just relax on the beach right outside your front door. Evening boasts beautiful sunsets and perfect dolphin spotting opportunities. The bay side of the property offers a pool and hot tub, and the perfect place to launch a kayak or to simply watch the morning sunrise. If being active is your thing, take advantage of the Cedars Tennis Resort located at 645 Cedars Court - just up the street from Beach Castle. There you have access to 10 fully-lit Har-Tru tennis courts (after 1 p.m. daily and subject to availability), community bicycles, fishing pier and Jr. Olympic heated swimming pool. Guests will also have access to the Cedars Cafe & Tiki Bar and fitness center. Shopping at St. Armand's Circle and all the recreational opportunities of Sarasota Bay are just a beautiful 20 minute drive south. Although Beach Castle Resort does not feature an on-site restaurant, it is centrally located to nearby hotspots - some within walking distance! We recommend The Blue Dolphin Cafe, a local favorite that features the flavors of the island and is just a short stroll from your front door. The Lazy Lobster is also within a short walk and is wonderful for dinner or lunch. Longboat Key restaurants include Harry's Continental Kitchens, Euphemia Haye Restaurant and The Haye Loft Lounge & Dessert Room, The Dry Dock Waterfront Grill, Mattison's Steakhouse, and MarVista Backside Restaurant and Pub.
