Cabana Beach Club condo description

Come and enjoy this beautiful gulf front condominium located in charming Longboat Key, just north of Sarasota. Longboat Key is a quiet, lushly landscaped barrier island with no neon or fast food restaurants. It is considered to be one of the Gulf Coast's most beautiful and desirable communities. The area offers varied activities for 'days off' from the beach including: bike rentals, Mote Aquarium (one of our favorites); high end shopping on St. Armand's Circle, the Pelican Sanctuary; the Ringling Museum of Art, the Asolo Theater, and many other cultural venues in nearby Sarasota. For those wanting to stay fit, a paved walking/biking/ jogging path set back from the road runs the length of Longboat Key, passing in front of our complex. There are also free, beautifully maintained public tennis courts overlooking the Bay nearby. The Central Gulf Coast area is also known for its many golf courses, with an estimated 79 courses in the vicinity.

The condo complex sits on a beautiful Gulf beach with beautifully landscaped grounds conveying a casual but elegant sensibility. It is a small, 11 unit complex without high rise giants nearby. The unit is only steps from the quiet, uncrowded beach. Grassy dunes roll over powdery white sand, leading to aquamarine surf... we often feel as though we're on our own private beach.

Our spacious unit overlooks the water, with comfortable furniture and all needed appliances and accessories. It is well-stocked with just about everything you could need in the kitchen. We've added all the amenities we always wished were provided when we rented condos, including a large notebook filled with local information. The unit is designed with front and rear entries. A very substantial door separates the back bedroom and bath from the front bedroom, bath and living area. This is ideal for couples who might be sharing the unit, or for families with children as it provides increased privacy and quiet in the back bedroom area. Finally, you may enjoy the heated pool, and a charming patio area, surrounded by flowering bushes and native plantings. A gas grill is available for your use just outside our unit. A covered area with tables and chairs is also provided, should you want a larger area for entertaining under shelter.

Days can be spent discovering all the area has to offer, or simply beachcombing for shells, watching dolphins gracefully break the waves as they pass by. The warm, gentle Gulf waters make wading and swimming truly enjoyable. Picture yourself sitting on the white sand beach with family and friends, as the sun drops below the fiery horizon. Everyone should hold the memory of at least one spectacular Gulf of Mexico sunset in their hearts.

These are lovely accommodations, set in pristine tropical surroundings, where you can mix diverse activities with utter relaxation. Our condominium is designed for the beach lover in your soul. Come to Paradise.

                              Longboat Key is a quiet, lushly landscaped barrier island with no neon or fast food restaurants. It is considered to be one of the Gulf Coast's most beautiful and desirable communities and was ranked second best beach area in North America by Conde Nast, an international travel publication.

                              Along with the usual beach activities such as para sailing, boating, fishing, jet skiing, sailing, etc., the area offers varied activities for days off from the beach including: bike rentals, Mote Aquarium (one of our favorites); high end shopping at charming St. Armand's Circle, the Pelican Sanctuary; the Ringling Museum of Art, the Asolo Theater, and many other cultural venues in nearby Sarasota. For those wanting to stay fit, a paved walking/biking/ jogging path set back from the road runs the length of Longboat Key, passing in front of our complex. Nearby there are also free, beautifully maintained public tennis courts overlooking the Bay. The

                              Central Gulf Coast area is also known for its many golf courses, with an estimated 79 courses in the vicinity.
