PREMIUM REMODELED BEACHPLACE CONDO...BOOK NOW FOR SUMMER 2015

Longboat Key Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 2 bath, 1503 sqft beachfront, remodeled from floor to ceiling

COME STAY IN A FULLY REMODELED PREMIUM BEACHFRONT CONDO!!! Now taking reservations for Summer 2015 (May-Oct)....TWO WEEK MINIMUM PLEASE. INQUIRE FOR A RATE QUOTATION.

This beautifully furnished beachfront condo on Longboat Key, Florida is the largest 2 bedroom unit available in the Beachplace complex...over 1500 sqft. This two bedroom, two full bath condo was totally remodeled and renovated for 2012, floor to ceiling. It was gutted down to the cement frame and rebuilt with premium, high-end features (more details below). Beachplace is very popular in the summer with European and Canadian vacationers, and many families return year after year.

Located on Florida's Gulf Coast just across the bay from downtown Sarasota, Florida, this luxury unit is in the Beachplace complex at the south end of Longboat Key. As an exclusive premium gated community, Beachplace has all the amenities including a large heated pool, hot tub spa, tennis courts, exercise gym, clubhouse, wireless internet, and much more. But the real reason to come here is the private beach -- 9 miles of sugar white sand, crystal clear water, and plenty of peace and quiet. Stroll for hours, swim in 85 degree water, hunt for exquisite sea shells, or fish from the local pier.

This unit offers a King bed master suite, and two twin beds in second bedroom, large screen HDTVs, DVD players, wireless internet, all linens, dishes, etc provided. Washer and dryer are in the unit. The unit is 'turn key' - everything you need is there. Also there is a spacious furnished patio with views of the Gulf of Mexico to the right, and Sarasota Bay to the left. Enjoy spectacular sunrises or sunsets!

The unit is located on the 4th floor (of 6) and is over 1500 square feet with covered parking included. We just completed a total floor to ceiling renovation, completely gutting the unit down to the cement frame and modernizing everything with high-end features. Here are some highlights:

•Beautiful kitchen with custom premium cherry cabinets, Brazilian granite counters and backsplash, stainless steel appliances, and porcelain tile floor

•New LG Washer and Dryer in Unit

This condo has been family owned for the past 30 years. We have absolutely loved it and loved every minute in Sarasota. My parents first visited Longboat Key in 1974 and bought a condo in Seaplace two years later. Then in 1984, they purchased this unit in Beachplace primarily for guests and as a rental property. They are now retired and have turned the property management responsibilities over to me, the eldest son (lucky me....actually I love it).

I live in southwest Georgia, a small town called Albany. I come down to Sarasota whenever possible with my wife and kids. I think it is simply the most beautiful and peaceful place I have ever seen. We have rented this unit out for the past 20 years. We focus on establishing long-term relationships with our guests. Our first renters stayed year-around for 12 yrs. Then for 8 years, we enjoyed renting to a retired couple but just during the winter season. Now we are looking to establish new relationships with those wanting a winter or summer home, year after year. Of course, the occasional vacationer or holiday guest is always welcome.

Moe Veluswamy purchased this condo in 1984

Beachplace is a stunning property. And Longboat Key is a jewel on Florida's gulf Coast. I have traveled all over the world, seen some of the world's most famous beaches. I promise none of them beats Longboat Key. It is simply beautiful. See the pictures, although they don't do justice. You will see as you drive from Sarasota out to the island. It's like entering your own personal paradise. Sorry to be a little over the top, but you will see for yourself once you arrive...

This unit was totally updated, completed in Jan 2012 after 8 months of intensive work. Now be careful here. You will see lots of ads that say updated, remodeled, renovated, etc. Look carefully... most have been superficially brushed up. Perhaps a new countertop, or tile floor, maybe new paint.

This unit was totally remodeled from top to bottom. We removed walls and ceilings, relocated the HVAC air handling unit to open up the kitchen, raised fire sprinkler lines to raise the ceiling, basically opened every room to make the interior space as large as possible. Then we built a custom kitchen, custom baths, and made lots of other improvements:

Here are some highlights:

•Beautiful kitchen with custom premium cherry cabinets, Brazilian granite counters and backsplash, stainless steel appliances, and porcelain tile floor

•New LG Washer and Dryer in Unit

•New hardwood floors throughout - Amendiom Brazilian oak harvested under the principles of sustainable forest management

•Master bath with custom-built walnut spa vanity, Brazilian granite top, two black pearl vessel sinks, charcoal porcelain tile. New multi-head shower with stone tile surround and clear glass enclosure.

•Guest bath with custom-built cherry vanity, Brazilian granite top, patterned glass vessel sink, porcelain tile. New Jacuzzi tub with multi-head shower and stone tile surround.

•Open design and layout - removed walls, raised ceilings, created an open and bright floorplan

•New lighting throughout

•New Hunter-Douglas window treatments

•New high definition flat screen TVs (Sony) and Bly-Ray players in all rooms

•New high glass panel door in the master bedroom to allow you to wake up with a georgious view of the gulf.

Trust me...no other unit looks like this one. But don't take my word for it. Just look at the pictures and compare to other units in Beachplace.

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure hosting you. I lived in New York years ago, so I know what a treat it is to get away from the cold for a few weeks and enjoy the sun again. Glad to hear you enjoyed your time on Longboat Key. Hope to see you again next year.

EXHALE...

  • 5 of 5
...and relax, like we did, in this lovely home away from home. Beautifully decorated, super clean, plenty of sleeping space and two full-sized private baths (the master bath shower is to die for!). All the conveniences of home - in fact, better than many homes. Updated kitchen appliances and all the dishes and serving utensils you need to cook and serve your family in front of the TV or have a more formal sit down dinner with guests. High efficiency washer and dryer, cable, Internet access, telephones - everything you need at your fingertips. During the day, I spent a lot of time enjoying the immaculate grounds where I sometimes sat quiety and enjoyed the scenery, read a book or took a long walk through the park or on the beach (it was too cool to get in the water, but the sunsets were stunning). A large elevator made moving suitcases and transporting my aging mother in a wheelchair easy. The split bedroom design was great for privacy and quiet. We ate at some of the best restaurants in the country, and every day we found super fun places to shop and sightsee. The owners were very professional and accommodating, making this was one of my favorite vacation spots of all time and one that my family and I will certainly visit again.

Owner's Response: I love your description of "home away from home". That is really what we have tried to create. Over the years, we have furnished the condo with just about everything you would need for a vacation....right down to the new blender for Margaritas and beach towels for fun in the sun.

And as for your comments about being "super clean", I have to give credit to Debbie. She has been with us for many, many years....maybe 15+ yrs by now.... how time flies. She always does an outstanding job preparing the condo for our guests and is very meticulous about having everything just right. Her attention to detail astounds me. Thanks Debbie!!

Come back anytime Denise. We would love to host you again.

PERFECT FAMILY VACATION DESTINATION

  • 5 of 5
Last summer I had one of the best vacations I can remember, and a large part of that was because of this location. The condo has ample bedroom space and common living area, fully furnished with both style and comfort in mind. When you're not eating at one of the restaurants at the nearby circle, the kitchen is great for cooking up something for the whole family. The set up and layout is very family friendly. You're right on the beach, which was never overly crowded.

The bedrooms (which have their own bathrooms) are situated in a manner that our children were able do their thing in their own area, with a TV etc, while mom and dad had some relaxation time. I have some fond memories sitting on the balcony overlooking the pool. That's where I found myself most every night, and as a matter a fact, I wish I was there now!

A perfect location makes for a great vacation, and there are many great vacation experiences to be had here!

Owner's Response: It is quite gratifying and flattering to be part of providing a family with a memorable vacation. I believe time off and time away from home is very precious (and does not come along so often), so its nice to hear a guest say it was well worth it.

Thanks Jude and Bobby Jo.

A FIVE STAR CONDO ! ....WE HAD THE BEST TIME AT THE BEACHPLACE ON BEAUTIFUL LONGBOAT KEY

  • 5 of 5
A very well equipped, thoughtfully designed condo. No expense has been spared to furnish this wonderful luxurious 2 bedroom condo. It was very clean and had everything we needed to have a super holiday. The owner was a pleasure to deal, very caring and helped to make our stay unforgettable. There was great advice on places to visit and good restaurants in the area. We will return and can highly recommend it to anyone visiting the Gulf Coast

COULD NOT ASK FOR ANYTHING MORE! THIS PLACE IS FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5
I'm also a VRBO owner with 3 of my own vacation homes for rent. We wanted to visit the Gulf of Florida this year as we had never been there before. Working with Moe to secure his rental was very easy. He always replied back to us quickly with answers to our questions and went above and beyond to assist us with our needs.

This condo is absolutely fantastic! They supplied everything you could ever think of to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable, right down to the beach towels and coolers for your visits to the pool and beach.

The entire grounds for Beach Place were very well manicured and maintained. Everything in the condo was top notch and very clean. I am a super picky person when it comes to a clean home to stay in. I really scoured all of the VRBO listings looking for a nice place to stay in the area. I saw alot of other homes that just did not appeal to us at all. When I found Moe's condo online, I knew it was the right fit. The pool is a very short walk and we really enjoyed going there every day. We cooked most meals in the condo and found all of the supplies that we needed. The Publix grocery store is only about 2 miles away and there were grills in 2 locations at Beach Place.

St. Armands Circle is also a short drive away along with downtown Sarasota and Siesta Key. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the area while we were there.

We absolutely loved the attention to detail Moe and his wife took with the remodeling of their unit. It's the first place we have rented before that had plenty of counter space and cabinet drawers for toiletries, etc in the bathroom area. There were also ample outlets to accommodate electrical appliances and there were placed in convenient locations throughout the condo.

The beach chairs and umbrellas already setup on the beach were a really nice bonus. Also, since the Longboat key beach is private, there were almost NO people there in July when we visited. We felt like John Ringling must have years ago when he owned Longboat Key....like a billionaire enjoying our own private estate!

If you book this place you will not be disappointed! I really don't believe the photos can do it justice!

Thanks to Moe for sharing his home with us! We loved the Sarasota area also and would definitely return in the future.

Owner's Response: It was truly a pleasure to host Darla & David. They are a very nice and responsible family and took great care of our condo, which is much appreciated. I am so pleased they decided to give the Gulf Coast a try and that they enjoyed it so much. I hope they return soon...repeat guests are always welcome!!! We have a few improvements in mind for later this summer...like new patio furniture and new kitchen furnishings... and would love for them to experience that in person. Thanks for everything Darla & David!!
