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.

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.

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

We loved our stay at Covert III!

  • 5 of 5
Four adults had two awesome weeks at this location, and we loved it! Perfect size for 4 adults! We loved the quick and easy access to the beach, and being able to enjoy the sunsets from the porch room if it was a bit too chilly on the beach. The location on LBK is perfect, with such easy access to so many places like Bradenton, Sarasota, St. Armonds Circle, and plenty of places to get great seafood. The kitchen was well stocked with pretty much everything we needed for eating in . The owner provided us with lots of info about where to find things locally and how everything works in the condo.
There were a couple of glitches (like the coffee maker died) but the owner was great about reimbursing us for buying a new one. The owner responded very promptly about any questions or concerns we had. He took a personal interest in us having a good time while at his place. We would definitely return.
