You have surfed your way into a piece of Sarasota and Longboat Key history! This unit is owned by three brothers with a long Sarasota History. Our grandfather moved to Sarasota from Tennessee in 1925 and bought property on Longboat Key in the 1950’s. For several decades a little five unit motel stood on the sleepy beachfront property. In the 1970’s our father and uncle helped develop on that land what is now the 56 condominiums of Cedar’s West.
We are listing for your vacation pleasure, one of the first floor condominiums we have kept in the family. By renting this impeccably clean and tastefully decorated condo, you will of course reap all the benefits of beach/tennis/dining/biking/jogging/etc, characteristic of the Longboat Key (LBK) experience, but also a little of the flavor of our local legacy. Our parents and all three brothers, with our families, still live and work in Sarasota. We spend time in our Cedars West condos as our 2nd home in the summer off-season, making sure the accommodations are kept up to the highest standards.
We want this condo to feel like home for you. This first floor unit has two bedrooms, the master with a king sized bed and the guest room with 2 twin beds. The master has a dressing area with vanity and the bathroom has an additional vanity with tub/shower combination and a walk in closet. The guest room has it's own bathroom and a reading nook or small office space.There is also a den/sitting area off the kitchen that can be used as an extra sleeping area if needed. The kitchen is fully equipped right down to spices in the cupboards and a blender for frozen drinks. It is also open to the dining and living areas. There are beach chairs in the closet, flat screen TVs, dvd and cd players, as well as wireless internet throughout the unit. The lanai off the living room and master bedroom has a walk out to the lawn and beach. We have tried to include all of the things you will need to truly enjoy our slice of paradise.
We have prepared a local directory that will fill you in on all the Cedar’s West facilities including pool and tennis court, nearby attractions as well as some of our favorite Longboat Key hangouts for dinner and entertainment.
Being just 30 minutes away we are happy to respond to any problems you may encounter with the condominium, or simply give advice on where to buy things in town, who to see for a medical problem, or help find a babysitter for a visiting grandchild. Island life is meant to be relaxing, not stressful.
Please check our rates and available schedule. If anything is unclear or you have any questions, contact us by email.

The land that Cedars West sits on has been in our family since the 1950's. We grew up spending summers on this property enjoying the beach. Our father and uncle developed the property, building Cedars West in the 1970's. This really is our family's slice of paradise!
Cedars West is a wonderful place to stay and enjoy all that Longboat Key has to offer. It is quiet and relaxing. The beach is within view and just steps away. See dolphins swim in the gulf and have a chance to watch baby sea turtles take their first steps as they head to the gulf. Two great restaurants are within walking distance with others just a short drive away. It is a fantastic place to spend time with family and friends!
