Beach Castle Resort condo description

BEACH CASTLE is a 21-unit beach-to-bay resort that allows 1-day minimum rental, except March 15 - April 26 when 1 week minimum is required. Buildings are the color of sunshine, accented by white railings that resemble palm trees. Cheerful 2nd floor 1 bedroom (with 1 queen + 1 single bed), + sofa sleeper in LR. Nice LR/DR with flat screen TV. (I am gradually changing out some of the furniture, so watch for new photos.) Peaceful, private screened porch overlooks Sarasota Bay. (One guest commented that it was like being in a treehouse.) Take your coffee out to watch the sun rise over the bay. The unit even has a cappuccino maker. On this side of the complex is the fishing pier/boat dock, grill/picnic table, pool/hot tub, shared laundry. Just across the street is Beach Castle's private access to the Gulf of Mexico beach, where lounge chairs are available for your convenience. Enjoy a glass of wine while watching the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. Beach Castle is conveniently located on the island, just a short walk to the popular Harry's Restaurant, & even closer to The Centre Shops complex, with 3 restaurants (Lazy Lobster, Blue Dolphin, Ciao's Italian), gift shops, salon, etc. Many other restaurants on the island. Heading south on the island, it is just a short drive to Mote Marine Aquarium. Or enjoy nearby St. Armand's Circle, a mecca of boutiques, galleries, jewelry stores, and an assortment of restaurants with outdoor and indoor seating. Or you can head North to Ana Maria Island to catch a different atmosphere, lots of fun shops & restaurants (don't miss Sand Bar!)

          Location

          Beach Castle Resort is located on the beautiful island of Longboat Key. Drive just across the bridge to enjoy Mote Marine Laboratory (manatees, sharks, giant turtles, etc.) and Pelican Man bird sanctuary. A little bit further brings you to the charming shopping/dining mecca of St. Armand's Circle. From there, you can go across the fixed span bridge to all that Sarasota has to offer...excellent cultural/entertainment activities, shopping, restaurants, marina, boating, Selby botanical garden, etc.

           

          Manager info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About: My husband and I came to Longboat Key in 1999 and knew we had to live here! Now retired, we are living the good life year 'round on this beautiful island, and don't miss the gray skies of Chicago. We both enjoy tennis several days a week and have met many friends through the public Tennis Center and the Longboat Key Club's beautiful new Tennis Gardens.

          Why Beach Castle Resort:
          We also own a unit at the Banyan Bay Club (VRBO 419911) next door to Beach Castle, and often talk to the happy guests from Beach Castle. I am an MLS junky, so spend a lot of time researching properties, but this is the only one that appealed to me. The wonderful screened porch overlooking Sarasota Bay sealed the deal!
