Overview

Longboat Key Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Come enjoy this beautiful beachfront condo!

Completely renovated and updated in 2010, this condo is located at the desirable north end of Longboat Key on one of the most beautiful beaches on the West Coast: white sand, shells, no crowds. The complex has only 56 units in four, 2-storey buildings; all units have their own private outside entrance. This unit is on the second floor where the ocean views are spectacular, including gorgeous sunsets. The condo is done in soothing beach colors (light yellow, blue, white and coral). The living area and master have mirrored walls, enhancing the views, and both open onto a large screened lanai. The living area has a queen sleeper sofa, love seat, chair and ottoman. There is a large TV with DVD. The dining has a table that will seat 10 and a buffet/server. There is colorful art throughout. The kitchen opens onto the dining area to give a light, open feeling. Everything in the kitchen is brand new: cabinets, granite counter tops, domed ceiling, sink, fridge, stove, microwave. There is a small den off the kitchen with a full size sleeper sofa and a closet with washer and dryer. Completely furbished, the kitchen has service for 12, many serving dishes and extra appliances including a Cuisinart and an electric wok. The master suite has a king bed, dresser and a flat screen TV. Open the sliding doors to listen to the ocean, or close the room-darkening blinds if you want to sleep late. There are both a dressing area and a bathroom with shower off the master suite as well as a walk-in closet. New cabinets and granite counters can be found in both bathrooms. The second bedroom has twin beds, a flat screen TV and its own complete bath. There is a small office off of the bedroom. The beachfront pool can be accessed from the beach or the parking area and there are 2 tennis courts across the street for the exclusive use by Cedars West residents and guests. A barbeque grill is available on site.

(Please note that the Cedars West Condominium Association does not permit rentals for fewer than TWO WEEKS).

Longboat Key is close to both Bradenton and Sarasota, one of the cultural centers of the West Coast. Activities abound for everyone. Nearby are fine and casual dining, golf, parasailing, diving, theater, movies, opera, night life. Kids can have fun at Jungle Gardens, Mote Marine or playing miniature golf. Go deep sea fishing and cook your catch in your newly redone kitchen. Plan a morning shopping in the upscale shops on St Armand's Circle and have lunch at the Colombia or another of St Armand's fine restaurants. Rent a bike or take the free trolley up to Bradenton Beach to have a beachfront meal. This is the place for you if you are looking for a relaxing and fun stay at the beach.

About Carol

I am a retired college professor. I love to travel and have stayed at VRBO apartments myself. My focus is now on my family--especially my grandchildren.

Why Carol chose Longboat Key

My parents were one of the first owners at Cedars West and my family and I have been coming to Longboat Key since the 1970s. When I took over the condo in 2010 I decided to renovate it to make it as comfortable possible for both my children and grandchildren as well as for future renters.

What makes this condo unique

I have tried to create a comfortable beach atmosphere in the unit with all the amenities I could think of. My family and I use the unit periodically, and everything is new and of top quality. It is not just a rental, it is a home. I invite you to share a place that I love.

A high quality, peaceful, stay at Cedars West, LBK

  • 5 of 5

WHAT WE ENJOYED MOST

Peaceful location and the well appointed, clean well equipped Apartment. Also the excellent heated Swimming Pool AND the proximity of the Beach.

WOULD WE RECOMMEND OR RETURN?

Yes we would be pleased to return in the future should our Travels take us to the LBK area. We would have little hesitation in recommending the Apartment to friends and relatives.

LOCAL RESTAURANTS

Greatly enjoyed the food at Harry's Continental Kitchen which is also very much more attractive inside for Dinner than one might expect from the outside. We also sampled Euphemia Hayes which was excellent albeit more expensive. We also sampled a few further afield Restaurants both for dinner and lunch and we were not disappointed - the choice is plentiful.

SUITABILITY FOR OUR NEEDS

As my wife was - prior and initially - suffering from a sore lower back - the very comfortable King Sized Bed and peaceful nature of the Apartment location assisted greatly in completing a recuperation for her and the 2 week stay at Cedars West was just what we needed!

SERVICE FROM THE OWNER

Carol,was most helpful when Booking and with the Key Arrangements at the start and finish. Carol,has also prepared a comprehensive Owners Guide which she e-mails ahead of the visit and leaves in book form at the Apartment together with the Local Condo Rules - most helpful. Carol proved to be most flexible and diligent throughout.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on Longboat Key and were very pleased with this condo! The beds are very comfortable and the views from the master and living room were beautiful! The blackout blinds made it very easy to sleep in on the days we wanted to be lazy. Evenings were spent on the screened porch (very comfy furniture) listening to the waves and watching the sun set.

I usually clean upon arrival, but there was no need as this home was very clean and well organized. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking and it was wonderful having a washer and dryer in the unit! You will love the layout as well. I would definitely recommend this condo!

Thanks so much, Carol, for being such a pleasure to work with in planning our vacation!

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from two weeks.......the property exceeded our expectations. Carol was great at answering my questions and reassuring me that the property had everything we needed, as this was my first time in using VRBO. I would highly recommend this property for families and couples. We saw manatees, dolphins and stingrays!!

We will be back!

The Nelson's

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location and property accomodations for a week in Florida, the only thing negative was not being able to stay several more weeks. Comfortable beds, well equiped, very clean and views to die for. Location couldn't be better on Longboat key with everything close but also with a private and quiet feeling atmosphere. Walk directly to the beach and enjoy a fantastic day in the sun and water. The pool water temperature was not short of perfect. I would recommend this property to anyone. Want to go to the mountains, visit my property at vrbo property id 60504.

LOVELY LIVING ON LONGBOAT

  • 5 of 5

More than words, we offer the best reference – we extended our stay when we had the chance! More time here, at this extremely comfortable, convenient, crisply furnished condo was just what we wanted. It’s a little sanctuary overlooking a garden and the Gulf, but close to all the amenities of St. Armand’s - dining and shopping - as well as great restaurants and cultural offerings in Sarasota. Cedars West is also near Harry’s Market/Deli/Restaurant, a nature preserve, and a brand new Publix -- all on the island. You’d surely enjoy your stay here.
