Property description

SEA PINES This is an amazing Gulf front location that has one of the best views on Longboat Key looking out over the low dunes to the Gulf of Mexico where you can see the dolphins play, and the most amazing sunsets you’ll see anywhere. Quiet and serene with magnificent views, yet only a ten minute drive to famous St. Armand’s Circle, or in the other direction, just minutes to funky Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach, and Anna Maria. Its the perfect location.
A clean, well manicured vacation barrier island with plenty to see and do, Longboat Key has a lot to offer. Sarasota, with its lively cultural and artistic activities is only a short 20 minute drive over the causeway (no charge) which crosses Sarasota Bay and keeps Longboat Key so private and special. The entire island caters to all tastes. Outdoor activities abound from amazing fishing, to world class golf, tennis, sailing, and especially the beaches, which are regarded by many as the best in the world. There is also a wonderful 10 mile bike trail (rentals are available nearby) that runs the length of the island. Of course there's a great selection of classic small eateries and bars sure to please everyone, as well as higher end places for those special occasions.
The Condo itself has been completely renovated and upgraded just this year, including a brand new kitchen. It is supplied with luxurious linens, washer and dryer in the unit, first class cookware, HD TVs, and of course, hi speed wireless internet. There is a sleeper sofa in the living room for additional guests and an office with a printer/copier/fax in case you need one.
The grounds are beautifully manicured, expansive, and well kept, as is the heated pool. And did I mention the amazing beach right outside your door? And the incredible sunsets from the huge double lanai of this second floor corner unit?
So get your chilled wine, or tropical iced tea, and sit back. A blender, is provided for those that prefer a margarita or frozen daiquiri. Relax and enjoy this fantastic two bedroom, two bath condo with soothing ocean breezes while grilling up some fresh local seafood. And did I mention the amazing views? And the wonderful beach?
We have rented many condos over the years in many places, and are bringing the things we liked and appreciated the most to Seawatch
We love it there, and I am sure you will too.

Car: Recommended

Sea Pines is located in a very quiet area at the northern end of Longboat Key, but attractions are only minutes away. Sarasota, with its lively cultural and entertainment activities, is but 20 a minute drive. St. Armand's circle, with its high end shopping, is only a ten minute drive,

while funky and fun Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach, and historic Anna Maria are just an equally short drive in the other direction. A short walk down the street are two local favorites, Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant and Pub and Moore's Stone Crab restaurant and bar. Or you can just sit on the beach and watch the dolphins and manatees. There is also a 10 mile bike trail that runs the length of the island.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are from Nantucket Island and so have always been drawn to places near or on the water, especially islands. We love to travel in general, and over the years have been able to define what we like most in a condo, and have found that at Sea Pines. We are generally low key, quiet types, who have been known, on occasion, to head out for a night of frolic.

Why the Owner Chose Longboat Key, FL, USA:
We had been looking for the perfect condo for a long time, but nothing ever seemed to have all the things that make a vacation rental special.....Until we found Sea Pines. The quiet and privacy along with the amazing beach and Gulf views have a wow factor of ten. Longboat Key is the perfect blend of understated elegance bracketed by funky, old Florida villages with plenty to do to keep everyone occupied. Or to do nothing at all.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Sea Pines is located in a quiet and private area at the very north end of Longboat Key with all the activities and dining one could ask for just a very short drive away in either direction. In fact. the two oldest and most famous restaurants, Moore's Stone Crab Restaurant and Bar and Mar Vista Restaurant and Bar, are just a short walk down the street.
