Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Barry and Teresa Marta, We live in Oakville, Ontario.

Why the Owner Chose Beachplace:
We have been going to Long Boat Key for 12 years and we just love it. We have had our eyes on The Beachplace for years as it is the best location on LBK.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We wanted this condo because it faces south, which is crucial in the winter, and has a beautiful view. Only two of the 11 buildings have southern exposure. The unit is contemporary and comfortable. You feel like you are at home.
