About the Property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

WELCOME TO OUR PARADISE!! Sandy beach, spectacular sunsets, culture of Sarasota, boutiques and restaurants of St Armands Circle..... This is the most popular one bedroom condo at The Diplomat Resort.

We totally renovated the condo. For example, out went the entire bathroom (the pink tiles and all the fixtures) and in came soothing beiges. Glorious oversized ceramic tile laid diagonally, was installed on all the flooring. NEW KITCHEN WITH GRANITE, GLASS BACKSPLASH, ENTIRELY NEW CABINETS, BOSCH DISHNEWASHER. All the furniture is new also. We chose a somewhat contemporary, but practical style, i.e., leather sectional couch with 2 recliner chairs built in. New pots, pans, dishes, light fixtures, silk flower arrangements, art, paint..... Twin airbeds, significantly more comfortable than hide-a-beds, can be inflated to accommodate 2 other adults.

The beach is literally steps from your door (no stairs). You can walk the sandy beach forever, whether north or south, without any fences to deter you or maybe you prefer to surf fish. Our condo is on the first floor which means the beach, the tiki-huts, pool, laundry areas are easy to access. Eddy and Harry are resident egret and heron friends. They are as tame as can be, and wander the grounds.

Longboat Key is an upscale island off the coast of Sarasota, about halfway down the western coast of Florida. It is known for its quiet, refined ambiance, wonderful sandy beach and great sunsets - with the perks of Sarasota, a small cultural city, 25 minutes away. Ringling (circus) Museum, St Armands Circle (restaurants and boutiques), Mote Marine (dolphins, big turtles, manatees)

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: We purchased this condo with the full intention of calling it our winter home in paradise. Hence, we put probably way too much money into the renovation, but it is quietly classy for you to enjoy. Since all condos (total of 50) at the Diplomat Beach Resort are individually owned, they vary greatly in the level of quality furnishings, freshness of paint and plumbing fixtures, and on and on. Our unit is new, all work was completed by professionals in their field, and nothing was spared on the furnishings. You are invited to come and make it your home!

Why Longboat Key, FL, USA:
Freshly renovated with the best, end unit so more privacy and an extra wall of windows. Included extras: beach umbrella, 2 beach chairs, 2 noodles, fishing pole, exercise mat. Right on the glorious sandy beach and Gulf of Mexico - what more do you need?!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Water and culture are tops. Water: sandy beach, sunsets, water birds, boats, endless beach walks.... Sarasota cultural activities: many, many live theatres of various types, opera, ballet, symphony, museums....
