Why Nicole Benakos chose Longboat Key

Location, location, location!

Walk across the street to Publix & CVS! One of only a few LBK Condo buildings that are close enough to walk to the store! Located Mid key so close only 4 miles to St. Armand's Circle and 11 miles to Anna Maria Island, Holmes Beach.

Just renovated and beautifully decorated! Amazing amenities! Nature lover's paradise and boater's paradise!

What makes this condo unique

Condo closest to the shore! Can't be built like this anymore! Looks like you're on a cruise ship from inside the condo. Beautiful walks across the street near lovely private golf course.

Calling all snowbirds

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a place. Longboat Kay and more specifically, the Islander Club is perfectly situated to enjoy everything in the best part of Florida. First off, the condo was unbelievable, southern views of the endless beach, highlighted by the gorgeous ocean. What a way to live! Huge balcony to relax after strolling the beach and floating in the pool. The pier right out in front makes for great fishing. Each time out to explore we found one great place after another, Holmes Beach, Anna Maria Island, and Siesta Key. Majestic stay to get me through the winter!

Great Location on the Beach at Longboat Key

  • 4 of 5

Since I had rented this place for Jan and Feb 2015, sight unseen, I was a bit nervous about what awaited me. Happy to report that it exceeded my expectations. It is roomy and well furnished with a beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico from every room. A spacious patio runs the length of the condo and can be accessed from every room. Permanent residents of the building are a pleasant and friendly lot. The managers Bob and Sally are competent and helpful. The location is excellent, being within walking distance of Publix the only grocery store on the key, which happens to be next to an excellent restaurant named Amore. St Armand's Circle on Lido Key is only 4 miles away and is an easy bike ride, drive or bus ride. I often walked to the Circle and took the bus back. If one is unfamiliar with beaches in this area, it should be noted that they are some of the most beautiful in the world. In fact, just last month, Siesta Key beach (located immediately south of Lido Key) was ranked the best beach in the country by TripAdvisor.

The building has a beautiful pool overlooking the beach. A well equipped gym overlooks the pool. It is a perfect place for couples or for families with children of all ages. Caroline Pedigo, the lady who handled my rental is super courteous and promptly responds to all enquiries and requests. I recommend this condo and the building without reservation.
