About Krista Yetzke, Owner

750 square feet, 1 large BR with 2 Queens, large walk-in closet, 1BA, Minimum stay 7 nights, Sat. to Sat. After a long search, 14 years ago my dad, Dave, found the “perfect condo” for our future guests. Mid-island on beautiful Longboat Key, FL, this gorgeous beach-front, end-unit condo directly faces the Gulf of Mexico. Ultra clean and tastefully decorated, a Gulf view from every room, offering 180-degree unobstructed views to the sunsets, dolphin watching and listening to the waves. The property includes a beautiful heated, (84 degree) jetted pool, shuffle board, & putting green. “The Tower” building has 20 units, 5 floors, 4 condos per floor. Our 4th floor SW corner unit, #401, is wider than inside units & includes a large covered private balcony. Our private beach includes plenty of beach chairs, 3 grills, 2 large covered cabanas & room for eating and lounging in or out of the sun. Only 5 miles south is the popular St. Armands Circle and just beyond that is downtown Sarasota. The condo is close to tennis courts, bike rentals, golf, excellent restaurants and miles of beach walking. We have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee and easy self-check-in and -out includes two keys in the lock box at the door. Don’t take our word for it! Read our reviews. Call or text any questions. Our response rate is 100% and usually within a couple hours. During your stay we are easily accessible to answer questions and concerns. Dave served on the board for 7 years in various capacities including board president. His main goal was to continue improving this beautiful property & to build a list of returning satisfied guests. With the help of others, we have a condo complex to be proud of. In 2018 I, Krista, took over ownership of the condo from my dad.

                                                                  The first thing we noticed upon entering this condo was the stunning ocean view via three huge windows that had a patio door leading to the deck. The owners clearly have taken well care of this unit and have decorated it throughout with nice furnishings, as well as keeping it very clean. Because it was a corner unit there were two additional large windows offering an ocean-side view from the kitchen and the bedroom. We enjoyed having two TV's in the unit (one in the living area and one in the bedroom). This complex was meticulously maintained by groundskeepers every morning. In addition, they had a wonderful swimming pool/patio area that was actually "heated" and extremely clean as well. We used the pool quite a bit, even one day when it was only 60 degrees. Adjacent to the pool was a barbeque area with an overhead area with tables and chairs and on the other end of the complex an additional overhead area if you wanted shelter from the sun. The front desk women were very friendly and helpful whether it was general info on the area, restaurant recommendations/reservations, or printing our boarding passes. We also went to several restaurants in Sarasota and our favorite by far was Heinrich's German Grille, as the food was some of the best German we have ever tasted. We also enjoyed hiking along the sidewalks that ran parallel to the island every day. We certainly would not hesitate to come back to this awesome unit when visiting the Sarasota area.

The unique aspect we enjoyed was the quietness. The beach was quiet. Shopping is just 20 minutes north or south along with good restaurants. The Unit has a fabulous view, is clean and met our needs. We saw the passing manatee everyday and one day encountered a sea turtle. Overall ranked very high with us.

We love the exceptional privacy and quiet atmosphere there. The beach, which is just steps from the condo, is never crowded and the condo"s balcony overlooking the lawn and beach is private and perfect for sunset viewing each evening. There is a lovely pool and outdoor cooking area for those who like to grill their dinner. The owners are easy to work with and available for anything at all with just a quick call. For those not familiar with the area they offer excellent advice. We like the sophistication of Longboat vacationing while still being very close to St. Armand's and Sarasota for shopping and entertainment opportunities. This condo is graciously furnished and maintained, definately a giant step above the usual.

We can definitely attest -like other reviewers have- that the updates, location and view are top notch. We especially appreciated being on the south side of building where we could appreciate the morning sun. The unobstructed view to the west provided the perfect backdrop for coffee in the morning and wine in the evening watching the sunset. Also appreciated the extra beach towels and umbrella. Weather was great for late November and we enjoyed a lot of time on the sand. will look forward to coming back again. - Helene & Bill

It is clean, comfortable, quiet, and had a gorgeous 180degree view of the beach and the Gulf. We could sit on the 4th floor balcony listening to the waves and when the sun was too hot, we could move inside and with the sliding doors open have the same view. The beach was never crowded and afforded miles of walking. There are chairs and a covered area making time on the beach comfortable and easy. And my son and I held fierce shuffleboard competitions. The location is excellent. A large, excellent supermarket a couple of miles away. Restaurants within minutes drive. Finally, Wielands (condo owners) were a pleasure to work with. They were friendly, responsive and helpful from start to finish. If you are looking for a lovely, relaxing getaway on the beautiful Gulf Coast, you can not do better than this.
