Property description

Imagine stepping out your door with coffee in the morning to the beautiful Gulf of Mexico! This light and bright 2 BR 2 bath unit has a charming, cheerful and comfortable decor that will remind you of a beachside cottage B&B. Banyan Bay Club is a 44 unit Gulf-to-Bay community, with lovely pool, tennis court, small fitness center, fishing pier, and of course, the BEACH! 4 weeks minimal rental. For shorter stays, check out VRBO 397210, a studio (sleeps 3) at SeaHorse Beach Resort, another wonderful right-on-the-beach Longboat Key unit with a 2 day minimum. Like to try Siesta Key? Try VRBO 762882, an inexpensive efficiency in the beautiful Palm Bay Club steps from Crescent Beach.

Location

This island is Paradise! Just 12 miles long, and 1/2 mile wide at its widest point. Water water everywhere. A very classy, elegant island! Nearby is St. Armand's Circle, with wonderful shopping, galleries, and outdoor/indoor dining. From there, just over a beautiful fixed span bridge to Sarasota, the cultural center of the West Coast of Florida. Much to do everywhere.

4 week minimum rental due to Longboat Key ordinance disallowing short-term rentals for properties not classified as resorts. For shorter vacations, check out the reasonably priced units at SeaHorse Beach Resort. All of the units except one are right on the beach, as is the pool. Our unit, # 223 (VRBO 397210) is a studio unit (sleeps 3) but they also have 1-2 bedroom units.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We fell in love with Longboat Key on our first visit over a decade ago, and came back the next year to buy our own place. We discovered that we didn't miss the grey sky and cold winter of Chicago. Years later, we are now retired and live full-time on the island. We bought this wonderful unit at Banyan Bay for our own enjoyment (we call it our 'Northern home' although it's only 10 minutes away) and to serve as overflow for visiting family members. We also have many regular renters but would welcome your inquiry re: specific dates. I month minimum.

Why the Owner Chose Longboat Key, FL, USA:
We had been looking for property for some time but nothing really 'grabbed' us. When we walked into this open house all we needed to see was the wonderful view of the Gulf of Mexico. Although we did some 'flipping' of other properties back when property values on Longboat were going up 30% a year, this is the one we can't part with.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This is one of the 8 units directly on the beach in this 44-unit complex at Banyan Bay Club. Note: 1 month minimum. Our unit, # 223, (VRBO # 397210) is a studio, but there are also 1 and 2 bedroom units.
