About the property

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

Beautiful Gulf views from this Longboat Key Condo, only 10 steps to the beach with unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico. Two bedroom, 2 bath condo with access to the Gulf of Mexico, Tennis Court, and pool. Newly remodeled and has everything for a wonderful vacation. 46 inch flat screen HDTV. Large enclosed patio to watch the spectacular sunsets from.

As long and picturesque as its name suggests, Longboat Key's manicured lawns, sugar white beaches, dazzling sunsets and year-round warm, crystal turquoise waters are visions of understated pleasure.

Enjoy breathtaking views of Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Island living at its finest. World famous powdery white sand beaches are just 50 feet from your patio door.

The area is appreciated by wildlife as well, so these waters are home to manatee, dolphins, and fish, while pelicans, osprey, and a variety of shorebirds find sanctuary here. Tennis and golf enthusiasts will find first-class facilities here, and there are several parks on the Keys to visit for a relaxing afternoon.

Whether you like to spend your time shelling, biking, shopping, fishing, golfing, or dining, opportunities for these activities are boundless on Longboat Key.

Disney World and all its attractions are a mere 90 miles away, making a day trip to the Magic Kingdom possible.

About The Owner

My parents bought this condo before it was built in 1975. I have spent every vacation since on this wonderful island. Its very peaceful and my way of escaping the grind of everyday life.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1975

What makes this condo unique

Near private beaches. LBK is all vacation

homes, so not many people on the

beach on any given day.

Seafood caught that day. See locations of Cortez Seafood and Star Fish

Seafood. About a 15 minute drive from the condo.

Another great stay on Longboat Key. New furniture, flat screen TV, and stove are great additions.

Another Sun Soaked Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We live in cold dreary Copenhagen and look forward to our 3 weeks of sun and white beaches at this condo each year. This was the fourth stay at this condo and we've already already booked our 2018 vacation.

We did have a couple of cool days, its December, after all. So its nice to

be able to close of the Lanai with the outer sliding doors to be able to

lounge in comfort while still enjoying the view of the beach and ocean.

Owner needs to update their VRBO website with new photos showing the new furniture, 4K television, and glass top range.

Everything as promised...

  • 3 of 5

And nothing more. First floor walk out to the beautiful beach. The condo itself needs serious updating. The place is so full of mirrors it feels like a funhouse. If you're older and a bit overweight, like myself, you will be constantly reminded of it. The furniture is old, smelly and uncomfortable. The bed was comfortable. The shower drain is slow, so you end up standing in a puddle of dirty water. Laundry is on the 2nd floor. Word had it that this is the only condo in the building that doesn't have its own. Considering the rather exclusive nature of the surrounding neighborhood, one would expect better upkeep.

Owner's Response: Sorry for the problems you experience during your stay. I can't do anything for your body image. Being on the first floor is GREAT! But there are two drawbacks. Your so close to the beach the sand doesn't have time to fall off your feet, gets tracked into the condo and ends up clogging the shower drain. If you were standing in a puddle of dirty water, that indicates you were one of them. Second problem is the first floor condos don't have a dryer exhaust, Distance to roof too far. So, whoever told you this is the only condo without a dryer was incorrect. I can't do anything about the physics of dryer lint.

Great location - only steps away from the beach and the pool. We can't wait to come back, again! (and again!)

Longboat Key is a beautiful place. Great beaches, shopping, and great places to eat !

  • 2 of 5

The condo area is beautiful, very well kept. Great location. However this condo isn't completely renovated as described here. Yes there has been work done but more to do. Living room furniture is VERY dirty. If you're okay with the refrigerator having open jars of food from previous guest and other open food in the cabinets this my be your place. We felt like we walked into someone else's personal space.

Owner's Response: Sorry you were disappointed. I send every renter a welcome document that states you might find various condiments in the kitchen. If they bother you, throw them out. I have a number of repeat renters that appreciate not having to buy ketchup, mustard, salad dressing, sugar, etc, for a short stay. You are renting a home with VRBO, not staying at a hotel. And if you do stay in a hotel, there will be open condiment bottles in the restaurant.
