Property description

Paradise is not lost. Beachplace is a private gated Gulf front community with 24 hour security located on the famous Longboat Key. Being steps away from the longest stretch of private beach on Longboat Key and 30 acres of manicured grounds makes Beachplace one of the island’s most beautiful Gulf front properties.

Top to bottom renovation completed August 2015 on this 3 BR/2 Bath 1819 sq. ft. corner unit located on the 4th floor with views of the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay. With only one 3 BR unit per floor, this is one of the few available for rent at Beachplace. Unit features state-of-the-art kitchen with solid wood cabinetry, quartz counter tops, new appliances, fully renovated bathrooms, new travertine tile, new berber carpeting and built-in closets. All new furnishings throughout give this condo a contemporary coastal flare.

The unit is fully equipped including sheets, towels, beach towels, toaster oven, coffee machine, washer/dryer, pots & pans, dishes, glassware, flat ware, and kitchen utensils. High speed internet, cable television, Bose Home Theater and a video library add to the many other 5 star appointments of this unit.

Amenities at BeachPlace include a large olympic sized heated pool (boasted as the largest on Longboat Key), a 10 person whirlpool spa, a clubhouse with a fitness center, function room with large screen TV and a printer, wireless internet, 4 tennis courts and of course miles of white sand beach. A limited number of beach chairs, umbrellas and lounges are provided and maintained by the community. If you would like some hustle and bustle, the infamous St Armand's Circle with its numerous shops and restaurants is just a five-minute drive.

During the winter season, the community organizes a movie night once a week, a welcome party and social, monthly pot luck dinners, a weekly book club, a golf outing and other activities. Never a dull moment.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: My wife and I live at Beachplace at least 6 months out of year. We currently also own a 2 Bedroom unit in Bldg 5 which we also rent here on VRBO listing #437314 during the winter months. When not at Beachplace, we are usually in Europe for business and/or pleasure.

Why the Owner Chose Longboat Key, FL, USA:
When we decided to make Florida our home, we viewed more than 50 properties within the Sarasota metropolitan area. Beachplace was the last property on our list and when we arrived, we were just blown away. The gated property offers 24 hour security and the near 30 acres of manicured lawns, flowering trees, and palms made us realize we had found our tropical paradise. The views from our properties are stunning and although our building is not directly on the beach.......the overall property is. Every building is just steps away from more than 300 meters of white sandy private beach which is nearly deserted during the months outside the winter season. Located at the lower end of the Island, Beachplace is a stones throw away from St. Armands Circle and downtown Sarasota. It is also just a 5 minute drive to the Publix Supermarket located at the town center of Longboat Key. We absolutely love it here.......shhhhh......don't tell any one once you've come and have discovered paradise lost!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
You will see nearly 30 properties at Beachplace for rent here on VRBO. Built in 1981, very few have been renovated and even fewer renovated to the extent of this property which went through a top to bottom gut refurbishment in 2015 with the finest materials and finishings. As you enter the foyer you will see that we have installed 18 inch travertine stone tile throughout. The kitchen has been renovated with top of the line solid wood cabinetry, a quartz counter-top and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen is fully equipped, has a microwave, a coffee maker and a toaster oven as well as plenty of dinner ware and glass ware including champagne glasses for those special moments together with serving dishes, mixing bowls and pots and pans and baking dishes. The bathrooms were fully gutted and have new toilets and vanities and "rain" showers. All bedrooms have new berber carpeting. All furnishings are new and were purchased with your comfort in mind. See the pictures and compare!
