About Rick Herring

My wife and I purchased this property for our use in retirement down the road. In the meantime, we have decided to rent it to others who can enjoy the wonderful atmosphere of Longboat Harbour

Rick Herring purchased this condo in 2011

Why Rick Herring chose Longboat Key

We love the location of this condo, as you have beautiful views just outside the lanai...including frequent visits from Manatees. Then, you have just a 3 to 4 minute walk to the beach....

What makes this condo unique

This is the best of both worlds. We have views of the boats in our canal...and just steps from the beach !

A Great place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Longboat Harbour several times. It is now a gated community with great access for boating, kayaking in the Sarasota Bay...PLUS, beach access just 4 minutes from our front door.

You can literally sit on the lanai and look out to the canal, with boats and an occasional Dolphin or Manatee swimming.... the grounds are beautiful and there are 4 pools. Just a four minute walk to the private beach with its own Beach house on the GULF. Great access to St. Armands circle, Anna Maria Island, Sarasota and Bradenton.

Longboat Key is a beautiful island just off Sarasota in the Gulf of Mexico. Nearby St. Armands Circle has great dining and shopping. Nearby Sarasota has great theatre, restaurants and culture. Restaurants, biking trails, fishing, boating or just relaxing on the beach are right here. Sarasota is home of the Orioles Spring Training camp and has minor league baseball in the summer.

You can visit the Mote Aquarium on Longboat Key...or travel 30 minutes to Myaka River State Park for a tour via Airboat to see Alligators and other wildlife.

Take in a play or concert in Sarasota or visit a festival. There is so much to do in this part of Florida, but maybe the best thing is to relax on the beach. Our unit is literally just a 4 minute walk to the Gulf of Mexico beach...door to sand. The water is clear, sand is white and wildlife is plentiful. You are gonna love it here.

You might also rent a boat on the island and tour the Sarasota bay. A boat rental company is just one mile from our condo and boats can be rented for half day at approximately $200. This allows you to visit dolphins or take a boat down to the Sarasota Marina.

You might decide to go for ice cream at the world famous Anna Maria Island....just 4 miles north of our unit. This is a wonderful beach town for tourists in all times of the year and features unique shops and eating establishments....from the north tip of Anna Maria, you can see up to the Tampa Bay area.

Our unit has a fitness area and about a one mile walkway around the development for a morning stroll overlooking the bay and the wonderful well kept grounds.

We also have a brand new Publix just 3 miles from our unit to provide a full range of grocery and other shopping needs.

Longboat Key is a wonderful environment for family and friends. But, if you want to go for a drive, there are many attractions in nearby towns. You may want to go to Siesta Key...another fine beach.

Sarasota offers a full calendar of activities...concerts, plays, movies, art festivals, museums, shopping, chalk festivals, food, parties, golf, sailing, tours, Ringling Brothers Museum, aquarium...on and on.

This place is great
