About Beth and Richard Smith
We are semi-retired with grown children and very young grandchildren. We live in Westchester County, New York and are cruising sailors who spend a lot of time aboard. We also own property in Placida and Treasure Island, Florida but were looking for something closer to the cultural attractions of Sarasota while still providing a laid-back, beachy ambiance - on a spectacular beach. We found it!
Beth and Richard Smith purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Beth and Richard Smith chose Longboat Key
We think Sea Pines is a magical place - the beach is wide and under-populated, the grounds are carefully maintained, and the pool is beautifully situated with up-lights that illuminate the palms in the evening - moderating the usual "black" Gulf view.
What makes this Condo unique
All of the above. Plus an amazing colony of five spieces of sea birds populate part of the beach. And they leave nothing behind but their foot prints :-).
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
A little bit of paradise on LBK. Stayed for many yrs on the island and this home best of all. Perfect.
Great location very well kept and furnished could not have been more pleased.
Very cooperative and owners were more than helpful with rental.
The Smith’s beautiful condo on Longboat was exactly as described. We would change absolutely nothing
We can’t say enough about our month on Longboat Key, it was so beautiful and peaceful. Beth and Richard’s condo was equipped with everything we could possibly need: beach chairs, umbrellas, completely furnished kitchen with new appliances and every gadget imaginable! The condo is newly renovated and beautiful and the view off the balcony is of total serenity- the pool, manicured lawns and the Gulf of Mexico just a short walk away down a little path through the sea grass. The owners were extremely easy to work with and provided detailed information to insure our stay was hassle free. We Look forward to returning next year!
The Perfect Beachfront Condo
We have been coming to LBK since 1986 and formerly owned a beachfront condo on the island. For the past 5 years we have been renting. This was by far the most completely home-like condo that we have experienced. Virtually everything you could need for a month in paradise was here. High-end appliances, beautifully updated and redecorated throughout, amazing collection of kitchenware (pots/pans/untensils/glassware/wine glasses/flatware...), better cutlery than we have at home, an extensive collection of herbs and spices, more food storage containers than can likely fit in the refrigerator, regular and Kuerig coffee makers - complete with coffees! The beach towels were all new and plentiful along with bath towels and other linens. High quality beach chairs and devices - and, we could just go on and on!
The only thing missing for us was a community BBQ grill
The location and the views speak for themselves - you probably wouldn't be looking at LBK if you don't already know that. But this condo is special and the owners bordered on being overly attentive to our needs and comforts. They worked with us on adding a couple days to our stay and allowing us to check-in a little early. They reached out to make sure we safe as Hurricane Michael passed. They provided complete and clear information about everything from the Smart TV's to the Printer/FAX/Scanner (Yes, available for our use at no cost - they even had extra paper!) We can't wait to return!
To the Smith's ... well done!!
Completely renovated to class five stars
Place was fantastic with great new furnishings and fixtures. Brand new stainless steel appliances and cupboards. Enoyed our stay very much. Owners were very receptive to our needs.
