About Jane Card
Bob and I are a retired couple living in southern Maine in an old family cottage on a small working harbor. We have six children and seven grandchildren whom we love to have visit us whether in Cape Porpoise ME or Longboat Key FL. Both places are surrounded by water, pretty views and lots of fun things to do. Our grandchildren love to kayak right off our LBK balcony next to the dock.
Jane Card purchased this condo in 2005
Why Jane Card chose Longboat Key
BBC is an upscale, family-friendly + safe environment within walking to shops, restaurants + parks. The trolley stops nearby for ice cream trips and other adventures to St. Armand's Circle, Anna Maria, + even Sarasota if you're in the mood. A favorite thing to do is the Mote Museum Boat Trip to nearby islands and bird refuge, or the free water ski show nearby.
What makes this condo unique
Our small, compact complex allows us + our grandchildren to enjoy the bay, fishing dock, clubhouse + pool on the Bay side where our unit is located, yet have only steps to cross GOM to our white sand beach! It also means we can keep our sliders + verticals facing the water open 24/7 with complete privacy and not ever have to close them against the intense western sun.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Bob and Jane:
The week went way too fast and we don't want to leave. I can't say enough about your place, it is great. We saw manatee near the dock yesterday, and went down and watched them.
We definitely want to come again. We have had a wonderful, relaxing time here. This is our favorite place and we have stayed at many!
Honestly, I think my friend, who was renting elsewhere on the Key, was jealous when she saw your place. She and her family were facing the Gulf but our view was much better. She kept commenting about your beautiful furniture and the ceilings and how nice it was to have the loft area.
We will definitely be in touch to rent again soon.
Thank you again for a wonderful time in your beautiful place.
Kim and Dave
