Overview

Longboat Key Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Beautiful Gulf views from this Longboat Key Condo, only 10 steps to the beach with unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico. Two bedroom, 2 bath condo with access to the Gulf of Mexico, Tennis Court, and pool. Newly remodeled and has everything for a wonderful vacation. 46 inch flat screen HDTV. Large enclosed patio to watch the spectacular sunsets from.

As long and picturesque as its name suggests, Longboat Key's manicured lawns, sugar white beaches, dazzling sunsets and year-round warm, crystal turquoise waters are visions of understated pleasure.

Enjoy breathtaking views of Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Island living at its finest. World famous powdery white sand beaches are just 50 feet from your patio door.

The area is appreciated by wildlife as well, so these waters are home to manatee, dolphins, and fish, while pelicans, osprey, and a variety of shorebirds find sanctuary here. Tennis and golf enthusiasts will find first-class facilities here, and there are several parks on the Keys to visit for a relaxing afternoon.

Whether you like to spend your time shelling, biking, shopping, fishing, golfing, or dining, opportunities for these activities are boundless on Longboat Key.

Disney World and all its attractions are a mere 90 miles away, making a day trip to the Magic Kingdom possible.

About The Owner

My parents bought this condo before it was built in 1975. I have spent every vacation since on this wonderful island. Its very peaceful and my way of escaping the grind of everyday life.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1975

What makes this condo unique

Near private beaches. LBK is all vacation

homes, so not many people on the

beach on any given day.

Seafood caught that day. See locations of Cortez Seafood and Star Fish

Seafood. About a 15 minute drive from the condo.

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from our trip to Longboat Key and loved staying in this Condo! It was literally steps from both the beach and the pool. We got up, had breakfast on the lanai and headed to the beach. We had an accident with the screen door and Mark was very kind about it. Everything we needed was in the condo and it was well kept. We had a whole week on the beach and the sunsets were beautiful. We loved it so much that we are house shopping in that area! Thanks so much.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to rent! The walkout view was worth every penny! We had breakfast outside on the picnic table with our toddler while we watched dolphins. It was so convenient to be so close to ocean, pool, and the bay...quiet 6am sunrises before our crazy days! Thank you so much! Longboat Key has been my favorite place since I was 5 years old. Now I get to share it with my family.

Great summer vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Longboat Key due in large part to the location of this condo and its proximity to the beach. Its on the first floor and only about 100 feet from the beach. The condo was the right size for my family and very comfortable. The owner, Mark, gave us some great ideas for dinner as well as leisure activities. On that note, don't miss Harry's Continental which is must in LBK and is within a short walk of the condo. Mark was also very responsive whenever we had questions about the condo. During our stay we had an issue with a light switch and Mark had an electrician over to the condo and fixed within a few hours. I would recommend this condo to anyone that wants a relaxing vacation with uncrowded beaches and fantastic sunsets.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice. Although there were a few minor issues and I feel certain will be corrected, the facilities and location were perfect for me. So many restaurants and activities within a 15 to 30 minute drive. I definitely plan to return. Thank you Mark!

Owner's Response: Hi Donna, Thanks for your nice words. We figured out the battery was loose on the lock and the light bulb in the bathroom was burned out. Both have been fixed. Thanks, Mark
