              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: Bob and I are a retired couple living in southern Maine in an old family cottage on a small working harbor. We have six children and seven grandchildren whom we love to have visit us whether in Cape Porpoise ME or Longboat Key FL. Both places are surrounded by water, pretty views and lots of fun things to do. Our grandchildren love to kayak right off our LBK balcony next to the dock.

              Why the Owner Chose Banyan Bay Club:
              BBC is an upscale, family-friendly + safe environment within walking to shops, restaurants + parks. The trolley stops nearby for ice cream trips and other adventures to St. Armand's Circle, Anna Maria, + even Sarasota if you're in the mood. A favorite thing to do is the Mote Museum Boat Trip to nearby islands and bird refuge, or the free water ski show nearby.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Our small, compact complex allows us + our grandchildren to enjoy the bay, fishing dock, clubhouse + pool on the Bay side where our unit is located, yet have only steps to cross GOM to our white sand beach! It also means we can keep our sliders + verticals facing the water open 24/7 with complete privacy and not ever have to close them against the intense western sun.
