About Property Manager/Owner
This property has been in our family since the Whitney Beach Community was built in 1969. We are third generation owners with a genuine love of the beauty and history of this area. We are a family of five (three teenagers) from northern Indiana. This is our home-away-from home every chance we get! We're very happy to be able to share it with you. Whether your visiting for away- time as a couple or for good quality family time, we'll make your stay comfortable.
Property Manager/Owner purchased this Condo in 1969
Why Property Manager/Owner chose Longboat Key
We absolutely love the perfect location of this unit. We wake up on the bayou with the beautiful sunrise coming over the trees and calm water. We are right on the water and can often see the dolphins or manatees swimming right outside our window while we have our morning coffee. The private Whitney Beach is right across the street, which is just a short walk. We actually chose to maintain THIS unit rather than move beach side so that we could enjoy BOTH the sunrise and the sunset. Our bayou facing home stays cool and shaded even on the hottest of July afternoons! We are in the perfect spot.
What makes this Condo unique
The historic Boat House is right outside of this unit. We spend almost every morning chatting over coffee or reading (and waiting for dolphins) in the boat house. The kids love to fish there and I actually LOVE a good rainy day reading outdoors in the boat house. It's so close that we often make dinner and carry everything out there to eat.

We needed this
We were looking for a get-a-way where we could relax and feel at home, but away from the busy city. This place is perfect and the owner-family made us feel welcome with all the special touches. We actually travel a lot, but no other rental owner has ever made us feel so wanted. We weren't quite expecting that.
I also can't say enough about the beauty of the bayou. I wasn't familiar with the area and assumed I wanted beach front. Lesson learned. The bayou views at Whitney Beach are less expensive but phenomenal! Boy, if you get the chance, you MUST watch the sun come up over the bayou. Best master bedroom morning view ever! (And, yes, we sat on the beach and watched the sunset most nights too.)
I want to go back soon!
Sun, Sand and Serenity
This rental is located in a secret little paradise. The kids enjoyed every minute, from watching the manatees swim through the bayou in the morning to seeing dolphins play in the ocean in the afternoon. The beach was beautiful and we had it all to ourselves! Even though the children absolutely loved it, my husband and I agreed that it would be a perfect retreat for just the two of us too!
Oh good! We're so glad you enjoyed yourselves. Our children love to be there too. Please stay with us again!
Excellent Anniversary Spot!
I surprised my wife with a get-a-way. This condo was the perfect choice. The owners have set this one up to really make renters feel like GUESTS. They weren't kidding about the sunrise in the morning. The view over the bayou was completely unexpected! We will be back.
Oh wonderful! We're so glad you enjoyed yourselves. Please stay with us again.
