A tropical paradise in a vacation destination with fishing pier, jr olympic pool and pair of aluminum bikes in garage to bike the trails in nearby Durante Park and alongside Gulf of Mexico Drive. Barbecue grillers in garage for your use as well.

Three levels to spread out so two families can rent together without feeling cramped in. Ideal rental for young and old, with beachgear in garage for the kids, puzzles and games in family room .At less than the cost for two hotel rooms, we have so much more to offer. If you have rented at Cedars before, this unit is twice the size, twice as spacious for a nominal amount more.

Kitchen walls and 4th bedroom/ study updated in soft yellow, newer carpeting in sky blue color, new beach pictures, outdoor lanai furniture, some new appliances in full gourmet-like kitchen fully stocked with utensils, dishware and cooking items.

KID FRIENDLY with high chair, port-a-crib, sheets at no additional costs. Kids toys in unit. BEACH GEAR including umbrella, chairs, boogie boards, plastic playgear for kids in the unit's 2 garages. Huge hammock on upper deck balcony just added to lounge in.

Huge kitchen/family room with 42' LCD TV. Cable TV in most bedrooms. Hi-speed /WiFI Internet included Peek-a-boo views of the Gulf of Mexico from two of the bedrooms.

Fourth bedroom on second floor (daybed and trundle open up to two beds) serves as a study as well, ideal for the teenagers or for those who wish to stay up late and watch movies on the bigscreen LCD TV in adjacent living room/family room. If there are 9 or 10 guests, a high quality inflatable queen air matress with pillow top can be placed in master bedroom or in living room.

No additional fees for small pets but must notify owner before renting. Notify owner if one needs to use the elevator otherwise it is not in use for others. (NO PET FEES,NO RESORT FEES)

Discover for yourself why many guests return to Castle-in-the-sky: more living space, bright and
clean, beachlike feeling and room to relax. Whether you stay at the resort by the pool all day or the nearby beach or attend the cultural activities in Sarasota, you'll be delighted to stay in the beautiful surroundings that the Castle has to offer.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My wife and kids love Longboat Key for the beaches, the sea life and the wonderful restaurants. When you are on the island your stress level drops and relaxation just seems to occur naturally.

Why the Owner Chose Longboat Key, FL, USA:
There are peek a boo views of the beautiful gulf; you may walk to the pier as well as places to eat, as well as the pool and nature car needed.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We like to spend a day at the beach, followed by a swim in the pool, fresh tuna or mahi mahi on the grill and then catch the fiery red sunset over the gulf.
