A short walk past the tennis courts and heated pool of this 44-unit complex leads to a beautiful, private white-sand beach with chaises at water's edge and no near high-rises. The private fishing pier bay side invites you to sit and enjoy the soft, tropical breezes within view of the unit.

Can't Wait to Come Back!
Hi Bob and Jane: The week went way too fast and we don't want to leave. I can't say enough about your place, it is great. We saw manatee near the dock yesterday, and went down and watched them. We definitely want to come again. We have had a wonderful, relaxing time here. This is our favorite place and we have stayed at many! Honestly, I think my friend, who was renting elsewhere on the Key, was jealous when she saw your place. She and her family were facing the Gulf but our view was much better. She kept commenting about your beautiful furniture and the ceilings and how nice it was to have the loft area. We will definitely be in touch to rent again soon. Thank you again for a wonderful time in your beautiful place. Sincerely, Kim and Dave

The north end of Longboat Key is one of our favorite areas to relax in and this condo one of the best values we've found in the years we've been vacationing here. There is lots of green foliage, low key as well as low-rise with water all around, and the broad, white beach is a two minute stroll. We enjoyed this comfortable condo done in yellow, blue and persimmon colors with top quality furnishings and excellent beds. The loft was perfect for our visiting grandchildren. We most enjoyed the water view, only a stone's throw from the balcony with long-legged birds high stepping, fish jumping and an occasional pod of dolphin lazily cruising. The other folks in residence were so nice and inclusive, and the manager on-site was very helpful. The owners, too, were very available by phone if we had a question. We highly recommend this area and unit for a great stay!

The place is beautiful and very clean we would stay there again. The owners are wonderful and you can always reach them. When you stay there there is a manager there who is also very helpful. You are very close to the beach just across the street. We loved our stay there.

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.
