Property description

The quiet, pristine, white sand beaches of north Longboat Key await you at Silver Sands, a small, friendly AAA 3-Diamond resort set among tropical gardens on a sugar sand beach with panoramic views of the Gulf's turquoise waters. You'll find the on-site management friendly and accommodating--helping to make your vacation everything you'd hoped for!

Unit 246 is beautifully furnished with a tropical flair and tiled throughout. Features include a King bed with new BeautyRest mattress, new living room furniture with quality queen sleeper sofa, new large flat screen TVs, fully-equipped kitchen and dining area, ceiling fans and individually-controlled central air conditioning. The spacious living areas and large screened lanai face southwest and look out to the pool and to the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico beyond!

Our first floor location offers instant access to the pool and beach--no stairs to climb! Daily maid service included. Free WiFi in the unit and on the grounds. No smoking in the units and no pets.

Our booking process is simple! Email us your preferred dates and we'll reply by email regarding availability and total cost, and provide additional information about our unit and Silver Sands. To book, email your contact information which we fax to the Silver Sands front desk. The desk manager will call you to confirm the booking and to obtain a credit card deposit. By booking our unit as an "owner referral," you receive a lower rate and do not pay a booking fee.

You can walk for miles along the shore, swim in the beautiful beachside heated pool, and relax at the private beach with complimentary chaise lounges, beach towels and umbrellas. Watch for dolphins, hunt for seashells, observe sea turtles and shore birds, and end each day watching the sun's rays highlight the sky as it silently slips below the horizon. Return to the beach at night and wonder at the millions of stars clearly visible in the nighttime sky.

While you're here, take advantage of the wonderful nearby restaurants, parks, marinas and shopping which Longboat Key has to offer. A new Publix supermarket and new CVS drug store are only a few minutes away.

Just a 10-minute drive away, you can enjoy the festive atmosphere of the lively restaurants, boutiques and shops of St. Armands Circle. Then, travel over the John Ringling Bridge into downtown Sarasota. Sarasota is the cultural arts capital of Florida, offering you an incredible selection of music, theater, ballet, opera, arts festivals, art galleries and the renowned John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art.

Longboat Key--just steps away!

Car: Recommended

Longboat Key features miles of soft white sand beaches lining the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Still the premiere residential address in the Sarasota area, the Key offers its tourists and seasonal visitors a beautiful and uncongested vacation venue, along with many unique and well-regarded local restaurants. Access to the Key is via no-toll bridges from Sarasota (south) and Bradenton (north) and its only through road, Gulf of Mexico Drive, is both scenic and easy to drive. St. Armands Circle, a well-known shopping and dining destination, lies just off the southern end of the Key; Anna Maria Island is a few minutes drive to the north. Sarasota, the cultural arts capital of Florida, offers numerous theater companies, museums and art galleries, ballet, symphony, opera and festivals and special events throughout the year. Beautiful Sarasota Bay offers power boating, sailing, deep sea fishing, marine excursions, dinner cruises and other activities on and off the water

Other Activities: Nearby: deep sea fishing, coastal marine cruises, dinner cruises, boat rental, bike rental, Mote Marine Aquarium, MLB Spring Training
