About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Booked for Jan/Feb/March 22016. Sarasota is truly the cultural and arts center of the Gulf Coast with so many activities it's difficult to mention.
This community is at the center of Longboat Key with easy access to island amenities and fantastic world class dining.
The condo is a spacious corner unit on the top floor of a 6 floor building with a balcony overlooking the private beach where you will view and photograph phenomenal sunsets, watch dolphins play, and see an occasional manatee close to shore. The beach is only yards from the building where you have a nice patio with both gas and charcoal grills, and a nice meeting room for owners and guests.
Enjoy the shopping and dining at St Armands Circle that is only minutes away at the south end of the island.
Want to know more? Go the Mote Aquarium, Selby Gardens, Ringling Museum, boating, saling, personal watercraft, kayak, and more!
Maximum 4 person overnight stay. 30 days minimum.
The unit may available the months of April through November.
