Your condo includes a master bedroom with king-size bed and a second bedroom with two twin beds. The master bedroom has a large walk-in closet and a sliding door to the porch overlooking the Gulf.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: We're a midwest family committed to maintaining a lovely rental property. We love our condo and its location and wish we could stay there more often.
We are thrilled though, that our renters return year after year and treat our condo as if it was their own.
When we are at the condo, we really enjoy the beach. You can walk for miles on the white sand and it seems so much more like a residential rather than tourist location. We also love golf and fishing and eating out at the many superb seafood restaurants.
Why the Owner Chose Longboat Terrace: Prior to purchasing our condo, we vacationed in Longboat Key and felt we discovered one of the most beautiful places in the United States. We love that Longboat Key does not have fast food chains, billboards, or huge crowds.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: We love where our condo is located on LBK. It is somewhat in the middle of the Key-just a tad closer to the north side. We find this area to be both pristine and 'down to earth' at the same time. We are across the street from the Centre Shops which include restaurants, shops and services. You can also walk to the James Durante Nature Park and a convenient bus stop is very near our condo complex.
