Beachplace is a private, gated community which includes the largest pool on the island, multiple tennis courts, a clubhouse and fitness center, as well as an extensive, private beach (with its own chairs and umbrellas). Beachplace has security at the front gate and around the property as well as an on-site maintenance team that keeps the property looking wonderful.

Longboat Key ('LBK') is a quiet and safe beach community with 11 miles of white sandy beaches. We have all the amentities that you would want on a larger island without all the traffic and congestion. For example, we have a Publix grocery store less than 2 miles from the condo as well as many restaurants and stores within 5 - 10 minutes. Our area beaches are frequently top ranked in the U.S. and Conde Nast Traveler Magazine recently ranked LBK as its #2 island destination in North America.

Included among them are the galleries of the Ringling Museum of Art and live theater at Van Wezel Performing Arts Center and Aloso Repertory Theatre. Other attractions are the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens and Joan Durante Park. A family favorite, the Mote Marine has Gulf related marine life exhibits and touching pools.

Wonderful Escape!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and daughter have been coming to Long Boat Key for over 10 years. We love Beachplace and it has become like a home to us... This was our first stay in this condo but it was awesome! The condo was clean, roomy, comfortable with all the amenities that we wanted and needed-great kitchen, washer/dryer, two comfortable bedrooms and bath. The living room was roomy and we loved just hanging out. Additionally, the pool and steps away accessibility to the beach just added to the relaxation we were needing. We have always loved the atmosphere at the Beachplace. Doug was fabulous and was always quick to respond and especially gracious! We highly recommend this condo to any and all looking for the perfect vacation getaway!

Always Great!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this condo! As stated in our previous review (Beachplace Bliss), we found this condo to be comfortable, affordable and clean! Doug is a pleasure to deal with and is extremely quick in answering any questions. The 3 tvs and wifi make travelling with teenagers a breeze! The highlight of this trip was having 4 beautiful and gentle manatees come within a few feet of us in the ocean! I highly recommend this condo and location for a perfect beach holiday!

Good value / Great location

  • 4 of 5

We have been coming to Longboat for decades and this was our first stay at Beachplace. We would definitely go back. The location is great, beach isn't crowded, and the pool facilities spacious and enjoyable. The condo was exactly as advertised and the process to book was easy and communication was clear. Thanks for letting us spend Thanksgiving at the beach!

Wonderful Vacation on Longboat Key

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been visiting the key for years. It is beautiful, relaxing and easy to get to. Our stay at Beachplace was terrific. The condo was well appointed, comfortable, spacious and clean. It was exactly what we expected based on the photos and description. My family of 5 (three young children) appreciated the well stocked kitchen - all appliances, dishes, etc, plus the washer and dryer as well as the huge assortment of beach/pool toys. The pool was a huge plus and the proximity to the beach was wonderful. There is a new club house with state of the art fitness center which we enjoyed as well as a ping pong table (kids loved!) The whole property is very well maintained, safe and beautiful. The owner, Doug was extremely professional, reachable and helpful in every way. We were so happy to call this condo our home for the 10 days we spent on Longboat.

Beachplace Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this condo! The 3 tv's, high speed internet and comfy couches were a big hit with our teenaged kids. My husband and I gravitated to the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and the biggest swimming pool on Longboat Key. We have been coming to Beachplace for years and have created a wealth of memories here! It's our favourite place in Florida! Thanks to Doug for making our stay so easy and pleasurable! I highly recommend this condo to those looking for the ultimate beach holiday!
