About Estelle Mathur

We live in Longboat Key in the winter, and like walking on the beach and visiting the cafes of St Armand's Circle and theaters in Sarasota. We are originally from Lexington, Ma, and still spend summers there with family.

Estelle Mathur purchased this condo in 2013

Why Estelle Mathur chose Longboat Key

We love this island, have stayed here a few times, the gorgeous beach and wildlife, and the cafes and street festivals. When this property became available last March, we bought it, and decided to completely remodel with a contemporary European flair. The condo is gorgeous and the view of the ocean is so stunning that we need no art on the walls, the view is the art!

What makes this condo unique

The special thing about this condo is that you can step right on to this pristine beach, or into a heated swimming pool. The condo has the latest kitchen appliances and equipment, and the master bath is gorgeous. You can see the Gulf from the living room, kitchen, and master bedroom.

Amazing place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Longboat Key for almost 25 years and have stayed at various complexes, condos and homes over the years. This unit at Whitney Beach ranks well at the top.

It is quite obvious that significant thought went into the design of the interior of the unit. It makes perfect use of the available space and can be easily transitioned from a 2 bedroom with an office to a three bedroom. We had 2 adults, 2 teenagers and a 5 year old all spread out and we never felt confined or on top of one another. We stayed an entire month so that is quite a feat. I worked almost the entire time during our stay so the 3rd bedroom transitioning into an office during the day was perfect for me. They even provided a printer and broadband internet.

The decor of the unit is quite modern and has a sleek, somewhat European feel but does not come off pretentious by any means. In fact there is almost no chance you will not feel quite at home after only a few minutes in the unit. Nothing in this unit is old. Everything is new and clean.

The location is wonderful. Beautiful views and only steps from the beach and pool. Tennis courts and a grilling area round out the exterior amenities. Bishops Bayou is across the road and is a great spot for kayaking, fishing or just relaxing. Also, very close by is Cannon's Marina, several restaurants and of course Anna Marie island.

We could not have been happier with our stay and plan to return again to this wonderful condo.

And finally you will not find more gracious hosts. No need to expand beyond that. You will be made to feel welcome and at home.

We enjoyed a wonderful month in this stunning renovated beachfront unit. The gourmet kitchen has everything a cook needs. The open concept plan allows light into every corner and the ocean view is magnificent. Two bedrooms and two Murphy beds allow for lots of guests. I highly recommend this listing at beautiful Whitney Beach.

Car: recommended

Step on to beautiful white sand Whitney beach, or a short walk to the bay boat and fishing dock.We love to walk on the beach and see the spectacular sunsets with a glass of wine. Nearby are the Bridge Tender Inn bar and restaurant on the water with music and singing, at the north end of the island, and the cafes and shops of stylishly casual St Armand's Circle. We like to eat seafood at the famous Columbia restaurant. Cross the gorgeous causeway onto Sarasota's Main Street with its street festivals and cafes, and the Burns St and Palm St Art District. Visit the Ringling Museum's entertainment complex with the Asolo Theater, Restaurants, Miniature Circus, and Botanical garden complex, right on the Bay. The Selby Botanical gardens and the Mote Aquarium are just some of the nearby attractions.
