Compliments of RVA, Beach Castle Resort expands from the bayside of Longboat Key to the Gulf – providing a place to launch your kayak and cast a line, a chance to spot exotic birds that stop here for our mild temperatures and to view a picture-perfect sunset over the Gulf of Mexico -- all courtesy of Mother Nature.
The grounds here are impeccable – from the well-manicured vegetation to the vast palm trees that dot this serene Longboat Key location. The buildings at Beach Castle are the color of sunshine and are accented by Bahama shutters and railings that resemble palm trees. Each unit is individually owned, which means no unit is alike and provides a unique vacation experience to our guests. However, all units provide a full kitchen, living room and private lanais – never compromising the comforts of home.
This secluded hideaway exudes a classic charm that, as vacationers, we yearn for. A place to get away from it all, relish in the Florida sunshine and reconnect with family and friends; all this while enjoying white-sand beaches, privacy and most importantly, vacation memories that last a lifetime.

Dining: Although Beach Castle Resort does not feature an on-site restaurant, it is centrally located to nearby hotspots – some within walking distance! Our recommendation is The Blue Dolphin Café , a local favorite that features the flavors if the island and is just a short stroll from your front door. Longboat Key restaurants include Harry’s Continental Kitchens, Euphemia Haye Restaurant and The Haye Loft Lounge & Dessert Room, The Dry Dock Waterfront Grill, Mattison’s Steakhouse, and MarVista Backside Restaurant and Pub.
Attractions: Longboat Key is rich in high-end boutiques and five-star restaurants making it an ideal destination for vacationers who like their beach getaway on the swankier side. As a barrier island to the town known as the area's "cultural capital", an assortment of entertainment options can be found at nearby Sarasota where attractions and activities abound for all age groups.
The island of Longboat Key is home to several premier, private golf courses, however nearby Sarasota and Bradenton areas offer top-rated golf courses a short drive off the island for golfers of every handicap.
The Centre Shops is located just north of Beach Castle Resort and includes shopping options of art galleries, restaurants, a dry cleaner, pharmacy and a UPS store – all the ingredients for the perfect spot to pick-up all your necessary beach essentials and remembrances. If you’re looking for higher-end shopping, traveling to Lido Key’s St. Armand’s Circle is well worth the trip. Rumor has it that circus magnate John Ringling won Lido Key in a poker game that turned the sister island of Longboat Key into a world-famous attraction.

Easy access to the beach, entry level condo. We truly enjoyed our time celebrating birthdays and Mother’s Day. Supplied extremely well for beach activites. We never did get the Wi-Fi to work, two different extremely long passwords provided, neither worked. Comfortable beds.
Only steps from the beach!
Our family of four enjoyed waking up and stepping right onto the beach. The apartment feels brand new, clean and the kitchen is fully stocked with kitchenware so we were able to fix meals.
This was by far the nicest condo I've stayed in. The kids room was so nice, with two beds and a full bath to themselves, the Xbox unfortunately didn't work, they were bummed about that. Our room also had a very nice shower and bed, we all slept so comfortably! The ocean was in plain sight from the breakfast bar, I loved seeing that while feeding the kids breakfast! They provide a starter kit with a sponge/dish soap and dishwasher powder, so don't make the mistake of buying that. The laundry room was about 12 feet away on the same level, you do need to bring your own detergent but it's free (no quarters needed) very helpful to have it so close! The ocean is obviously just a short walk away down a private path, and the free umbrella's and coolers to borrow were also a nice perk. Loved every minute of our stay :) The woman in the office was also nice enough to write down suggestions on where to eat & things to do.
Things we enjoyed: Harry's continental cuisine, The Lazy Lobster, Anna Maria City Pier, the ice cream shop across from the pier was also really good!
This was the second yr. In a row I have stayed at this property. I absolutely loved it. It's Besutiful!
Well maintained property
Beach Castle Resort was perfect for my husband and me. The unit was accurately portrayed, comfortably appointed, and the owner's personality seemed to radiate hospitality. This was our first visit to Longboat Key, and I hope we can return. Kudos!
