About Matthew

Since I was a little boy it has always been a dream of mine to live on Longboat Key. However, that dream is down the road as I am currently focusing on working and raising my two beautiful daughters on the shores of Lake Michigan in Holland, MI.

Matthew purchased this condo in 2007

Why Matthew chose Longboat Key

My parents brought me to the island when I was a little boy and it has been a part of my life ever since. In 2007, I purchased the condo from a family member so that it may remain in our family. As a father of 2 daughters, I rejoiced at teaching my girls to swim in the same waters where I learned to swim. I have relived my childhood playing with them on the beach, hunting for sea shells, and watching for manatees and dolphins. I look forward to repeating the cycle someday with grandchildren. I return to Longboat Key every chance I get and I would like to share this very special place with you!

What makes this condo unique

This property is a dream come true for families and couples. An incredibly safe island full of wonderful attractions. My ground floor unit provides very easy access to the Gulf of Mexico and the pool. The ground floor is a must when traveling with children for easy transportation of kids, toys, towels, etc. Save lots of money by utilizing the full kitchen to make breakfast and lunch, or utilize the large built-in brick grills outside. But don't forget to treat yourself and family to a couple of nights out at the legendary St. Armand's Circle.

Great mini vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The grounds are kept beautiful. Location to the beach is perfect. Pool is great. The rooms are plenty big. My only disappointment was the floors in the condo could have been cleaner.

Great Location! Relaxing, Low-Key Environment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the condo for three nights after our trip to Disney. What a great way to relax after three days of park rides, crowds, and lines!

The pictures of the condo are in-line with the actual condo. Our kids enjoyed the double beds, the "extra" living room with the TV, and the proximity to the pool. The beach was so close and very private. On our first night there, the water was calm, clear, and warm. Could not have asked for a better way to relax.

The surrounding area did not have the tourist-feel, like so many other family locations. We ate lunch at the Old Salty Dog and saw dolphins swimming the bay. Thank you Matt for the recommendations posted inside the condo.

My wife and I enjoyed the entire experience. Longboat Key is a hidden gem and we look forward to returning someday. Perfect spot, perfect timing for our family.

Gorgeous Beach - Extremely well laid out condo

  • 5 of 5

The beach on this part of Longboat Key is absolutely stunning, the water was was crystal clear with powdery soft white sand. The condo complex is beautifully laid out with all units facing towards courtyard which is open to the Gulf. The complex is a low rise building with a quiet family atmosphere. Lounge chairs provided for free on the beach and you can borrow umbrellas and beach toys from the front office. The onsite property managers were very friendly and accommodating as well.

Matt's unit is conveniently located on the ground floor, you just grab a drink and walk right out the sliding glass door by the patio and within about 100 steps you are on the beach. It was great not having to deal with elevators and hallways hauling beach stuff back and forth. My wife loved the washer /dryer inside the unit. The layout of the unit is really comfortable and well thought out. We had a family reunion with sons, spouses and grand kids and everyone had their space-including separate TV in the den, area, it really allowed everyone to have their space.

Condo is exactly as seen in the pictures, great water pressure in the bathrooms and the Central A/C blasts super cold air (greatly appreciated with the 90+ degree days we had)

Matt was very responsive and easy to work with. Will definitely return!

WOW...Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I treated my parents to a weekend away for their anniversary. We were thoroughly satisfied with our stay. It was a completely hassle free experience right from the beginning. Matt, the owner, is very quick to respond to any questions or concerns you may have regarding the visit. Upon arrival we were very impressed with the resort property. Very nicely maintained and the cleanest pool I have even seen. Shuffle boards and paddle board on site for rental for only $10/hr. Thats a excellent deal. The main office has a large rack of dvds availabe for borrowing, just as you would at a library which I thought was cool. The condo unit was very clean and very user friendly for a vacationer. the kitchen was well stocked with dishes and appliances needed to prepare any food you would want to make, and there was a tv in every room. There are lounge chairs that are part of the resort that are set up and ready to use both at the pool and the beach.

It was a great all around trip. Very Relaxing and hassle free!

Dream vacation literally RIGHT ON the beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five stayed here and absolutely LOVED it! It gave us a chance to each have our own sleeping space, while still being able to have time together as a family to make some great memories! We spent days at the beach (the condo is literally a 15 second walk from the feels like the beach is your back yard!!) and some evenings we went into town (totally fun area!!!) while other nights we chose to stay at the condo. The outdoor kitchens are right on the water and we quickly made a habit of making lunch there each day (hello amaaaaaazing seafood and steaks!!) and sometimes made dinner there as well. My dad is a chef and especially loved cooking meals RIGHT on the grills that are on the beach edge!!!! The condo is spacious enough that once my parents went to sleep, my siblings and I could watch NetFlix, have a nightcap on the patio or go for a late night swim in the heated pool (like 5 feet from the condo's sliding glass patio door) without disturbing our parents (all three of us siblings range from 28-33). This was the PERFECT spot to all get to be together and take some time from our crazy-busy lives! Also, the beach is perfect: super clean, not too busy, warm clear water, and relaxed enough that you can have a margarita (or three;)) on it...yet classy enough that no 21 year old springbreakers are partying on it. I LOVE this spot and will be returning the same time next year! Also - Matt the owner was great to work with and went out of his way to help accommodate us on a few personal items as well as a ton of questions that we had on the Longboat Key area.

Loved it and will be back!!!
