Longboat Key, Florida - a great place for Rest and Relaxation as well as time with family and friends. Listen to the rhythm of the waves from our private lanai, from the beach chairs or as you stroll along the beautiful white sandy beaches. Longboat Key offers the best of both worlds: A place to get away, but with easy access to attractions and entertainment venues in nearby Sarasota. Covert III is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico in an area with relatively little commercial development. While there are some great restaurants, bike rentals and shopping nearby, you will not find fast food restaurants or "big box" stores anywhere on the 10 mile island.
If it's too quite and you're looking for things to do, our condo is just minutes from the fabulous shopping, dining, and entertainment of St. Armands Circle. There are cultural and historical attractions in nearby Sarasota. And there are dozens of challenging golf courses throughout the area! Tampa and St Petersburg are just an hour away and Disney World is about a 2 hour drive.
Renovations in 2010-2011 include tile floors, renovated baths, new overhead lighting/fans and remodeled Master Bedroom.
Our family has owned this unit since the building was constructed in 1977. It is our "home away from home" for several months out of the year. We hope that you will find our place a comforting retreat from your busy life.
We love being on the beach. It is great to be able to wake up to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore and be able to walk along the white sandy shore for 4+ miles in each direction. Our unit in Covert III is over 1200 square feet. With 15 units on 3 floors, the Pool and Beach are rarely crowded and the tennis court is often available (An exception to this are a few of the Spring Break weeks in early April). For the fisherman, easy access to either the Gulf or Bay is available. Bike rentals are also available within a short walk of the condo.
While we normally fix easy breakfast and lunches at the condo, we also love to eat at some of the great local restaurants. Favorites include Mar Vista, Gulf Drive Cafe (love the Belgian Waffles) and the Blue Dolphin. Harry's has a great take-out service for those nights that you want to stay in- or eat on the lanai watching the sunset.
Tennis Court on site, Bayside Fishing Dock available, Mote Marine Aquarium -5 mins away, Shopping at St Armand's Circle.
