BEACH CASTLE is a 21-unit beach-to-bay resort that allows 2-day minimum rentals, except March 15 - April 26 when 1 week minimum is required. Buildings are the color of sunshine, accented by white railings that resemble palm trees. Cheerful 2nd floor 1 bedroom (with 1 queen + 1 single bed), + sofa sleeper in LR. Nice LR/DR with flat screen TV. Comfortable recliner in the LR (don't miss this - it looks like the other chair!). Lots of magazines (mostly decorating type). Peaceful, private screened porch overlooks Sarasota Bay. (One guest commented that it was like being in a treehouse.) Take your coffee out to watch the sun rise over the bay. The unit even has a cappuccino maker. On this side of the complex is the fishing pier/boat dock, grill/picnic table, pool/hot tub, shared laundry. Just across the street is Beach Castle's private access to the Gulf of Mexico beach, where lounge chairs are placed for your convenience. Enjoy a glass of wine while watching the sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico. Beach Castle is conveniently located on the island, just a short walk to the popular Harry's Restaurant, & even closer to The Centre Shops complex, with 3 restaurants (Lazy Lobster, Blue Dolphin, Ciao's Italian), gift shops, salon, etc. Many other restaurants on the island. Heading south on the island, just a short drive to Mote Marine Aquarium. Or go to nearby St. Armand's Circle, a mecca of boutiques, galleries, jewelry stores, and an assortment of restaurants with outdoor and indoor seating.

My husband and I came to Longboat Key in 1999 and knew we had to live here! Now retired, we are living the good life on this beautiful island, and don't miss the gray skies of Chicago. We both enjoy tennis several days a week and have met many friends through the public Tennis Center and the Longboat Key Club's beautiful new Tennis Gardens.
We also own a unit at the Banyan Bay Club (VRBO 419911) next door to Beach Castle, and often talk to the happy guests from Beach Castle. I am an MLS junky, so spend a lot of time researching properties, but this is the only one that appealed to me. The wonderful screened porch sealed the deal!
