About the Property

2 bedroom, 2 bath, 1503 sqft beachfront, remodeled from floor to ceiling

COME STAY IN A FULLY REMODELED PREMIUM BEACHFRONT CONDO!!!

FOR SUMMER RENTALS....TWO WEEK MINIMUM PLEASE. INQUIRE FOR A RATE QUOTATION. Availability limited until April 2018.....please check calendar for specific dates.

This beautifully furnished beachfront condo on Longboat Key, Florida is the largest 2 bedroom unit available in the Beachplace complex...over 1500 sqft. We completed a $40,000 window replacement project in September 2015, installing new windows and doorwalls throughout the unit. The views are spectacular....very few rental units have this added luxury. Also, this two bedroom/two full bath condo was totally remodeled and renovated for 2012, floor to ceiling. It was gutted down to the cement frame and rebuilt with premium, high-end features (more details below). Beachplace is very popular in the summer with European and Canadian vacationers with many families returning year after year.

Located on Florida's Gulf Coast just across the bay from downtown Sarasota, this luxury unit is in the Beachplace complex at the south end of Longboat Key. As an exclusive premium gated community, Beachplace has all the amenities including a large heated pool, hot tub spa, tennis courts, exercise gym, clubhouse, walking paths, wireless internet, and much more. But the real reason to come here is the private beach -- 9 miles of sugar white sand, crystal clear water, and plenty of peace and quiet. Stroll for hours, swim in 85 degree water, hunt for exquisite sea shells, or fish from the local pier.

This unit offers a King bed master suite, and two twin beds in second bedroom, large screen HDTVs, DVD players, wireless internet, all linens, dishes, etc provided. Washer and dryer are in the unit. The unit is 'turn key' - everything you need is there including fishing and tennis gear. Also there is a spacious furnished patio with views of the Gulf of Mexico to the right, and Sarasota Bay to the left. Enjoy spectacular sunrises or sunsets!

The unit is located on the 4th floor (of 6) and is over 1500 square feet with covered parking included. We just completed a total floor to ceiling renovation, completely gutting the unit down to the cement frame and modernizing everything with high-end features. Here are some highlights:
•Beautiful kitchen with custom premium cherry cabinets, Brazilian granite counters and backsplash, stainless steel appliances, and porcelain tile floor
•New LG front loading washer and dryer in unit
•New hardwood floors throughout - Amendiom Brazilian oak harvested under the principles of sustainable forest management
•Master bath with custom-built walnut spa vanity, Brazilian granite top, two black pearl vessel sinks, charcoal porcelain tile, multi-head shower with stone tile surround and clear glass enclosure.

LONGBOAT KEY:

Stretching narrowly for twelve sun-drenched miles between the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay, Longboat Key provides an ideal beach and bayfront setting for the ultimate Florida vacation and lifestyle.

Although it is known as a private island, Longboat Key is a popular destination for visitors from around the world. You are welcomed to a plush island of tasteful luxury and tempting quiet pleasures that cater to all personalities. If you are the athletic type, activities on Longboat Key are endless! Shelling, biking, fishing, dining, watersports and rollerblading… just to name a few. Tennis and golf enthusiasts are welcome to take advantage of our first-class Longboat Key Country Clubs. For those seeking a little city life, Longboat Key is only minutes from Sarasota. The city offers many cultural activities from the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center, Asolo Theater, Ringling Museum, Sarasota Ballet to the Sarasota Opera House. Even closer than downtown Sarasota is world-class shopping on St. Armand's Circle, just a bridge away!

Longboat Key is host to all the pleasures a true hedonist could imagine. Bask in the tropical sun, play a round of golf, game of tennis, cocktails by sunset, dinner by candlelight or a performance in the city. So many pleasures, so little time….escape to our island!

NEARBY SARASOTA:

Sarasota is a tropical paradise on the Gulf of Mexico that offers abundant natural beauty, cultural tradition, and plenty of sunshine. Sarasota offers residents a superb quality of life leading to CNN/Money Magazine choosing Sarasota as America's Best Small City and one of the nation's top eight Best Places to Retire.

Sarasota's clean air, sparkling beaches and sunny climate have made us world famous as a center for the good life. Our vibrant recreational and cultural scene offers activities for every taste and budget. Sarasota offers big city amenities with a small town way of living.

Sarasota is a city that offers something for everyone: pristine beaches, world-class shopping, international cuisine, renowned museums and galleries, Florida's signature water sports and outdoor activities, the serenity of aquariums and botanical gardens, and the excitement of friendly street festivals. From sophisticated to leisurely, Sarasota's array of amenities makes it an unparalleled vacation destination.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: This condo has been family owned for the past 30 years. We have absolutely loved it and loved every minute in Sarasota. My parents first visited Longboat Key in 1974 and bought a condo in Seaplace two years later. Then in 1984, they purchased this unit in Beachplace primarily for guests and as a rental property. They are now retired and have turned the property management responsibilities over to me, the eldest son (lucky me....actually I love it). I live in southwest Georgia, a small town called Albany. I come down to Sarasota whenever possible with my wife and kids. I think it is simply the most beautiful and peaceful place I have ever seen. We have rented this unit out for the past 20 years. We focus on establishing long-term relationships with our guests. Our first renters stayed year-around for 12 yrs. Then for 8 years, we enjoyed renting to a retired couple but just during the winter season. Now we are looking to establish new relationships with those wanting a winter or summer home, year after year. Of course, the occasional vacationer or holiday guest is always welcome.

Why the Owner Chose Longboat Key, FL, USA:
Beachplace is a stunning property. And Longboat Key is a jewel on Florida's gulf Coast. I have traveled all over the world, seen some of the world's most famous beaches. I promise none of them beats Longboat Key. It is simply beautiful. See the pictures, although they don't do justice. You will see as you drive from Sarasota out to the island. It's like entering your own personal paradise. Sorry to be a little over the top, but you will see for yourself once you arrive...

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This unit was totally updated, completed in Jan 2012 after 8 months of intensive work. Then in summer 2015, we completed a window replacement project to open up the views and sight lines. Now be careful here. You will see lots of ads that say updated, remodeled, renovated, etc. Look carefully... most have been superficially brushed up. Perhaps a new countertop, or tile floor, maybe new paint. This unit was totally remodeled from top to bottom. We removed walls and ceilings, relocated the HVAC air handling unit to open up the kitchen, raised fire sprinkler lines to raise the ceiling, basically opened every room to make the interior space as large as possible. Then we built a custom kitchen, custom baths, and made lots of other improvements: Here are some highlights: •Beautiful kitchen with custom premium cherry cabinets, Brazilian granite counters and backsplash, stainless steel appliances, and porcelain tile floor •New LG Washer and Dryer in Unit •New hardwood floors throughout - Amendiom Brazilian oak harvested under the principles of sustainable forest management •Master bath with custom-built walnut spa vanity, Brazilian granite top, two black pearl vessel sinks, charcoal porcelain tile, multi-head shower with stone tile surround and clear glass enclosure. •Guest bath with custom-built cherry vanity, Brazilian granite top, patterned glass vessel sink, porcelain tile, Jacuzzi tub with multi-head shower and stone tile surround. •Open design and layout - removed walls, raised ceilings, created an open and bright floorplan •New lighting throughout •New Hunter-Douglas window treatments •New high definition flat screen TVs (Sony) and Bly-Ray players in all rooms •New high glass panel door in the master bedroom to allow you to wake up with a georgious view of the gulf. Trust me...no other unit looks like this one. But don't take my word for it. Just look at the pictures and compare to other units in Beachplace.
