Prime location and luxury !!!! Enjoy spectacular sunsets and incredible water views of the Gulf of Mexico in this upscale, direct waterfront, luxury condo. This end unit has incredible unobstructed views of the gulf---- direct views from living area and both bedrooms. Our condo boasts a full length, gulf front screened lanai with sliding doors from the master bedroom and living room. The second bedroom has its own gulf front screened lanai with sliding doors.
This condo has been renovated with a state of the art kitchen -- stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. Bathrooms boast over sized showers and custom tile work. A sleeper sofa in the den accommodates extra guest. Flat screen LCD TVs are located in the living room and both bedrooms. High speed internet, air conditioned, handicapped access. In unit washer and dryer for your convenience.
Located in the Portobello Condo Complex, amenities include a beautiful private beach, heated pool, tennis court, assigned parking and club house. Community boat dock and canoe dock is available. Minutes to St. Armand's and Sarasota. One-half mile to Publix/CVS Shopping Plaza. 10 mile bike path on Gulf of Mexico Drive.
The hardest part of vacationing here is that you won't want to leave. You are literally steps away from the ocean and the soothing sounds of the surf. You can also enjoy the view from the balcony while relaxing on a lounge chair. My husband made it his afternoon reading and cat nap spot. The condo is well stocked with all the necessities so you can feel right at home. Nice open floor plan in kitchen/living room area. Spacious master bedroom. The unit was very clean and well maintained. The grounds of the property were also well kept. We did sneak in a dip in the pool and a walk along the bayside dock looking for sea life.
The property is also conveniently located close to great restaurants, grocery stores, shopping and tourist attractions. While we did our fair share of beaching, we also got out to the Mote Marine Lab, Selby Gardens and Ringling Museum. No shortage of things to do close by. This is truly a great place to unwind. Can't wait to come back!!
Beach front view, clean comfortable amenities, parking spot, and a tennis court, Protobello exceeded all of our expectations. The beach front porch is my new favorite reading spot, with the ocean breeze. White sand beach steps away from the condo makes for an amazing and relaxing stay.
All accommodations were taken care of, the beds were very comfortable, and house spotless. Located right on the beach and close to the shops this condo offers the best of both worlds.
If it's luxury and comfort you're looking for, look no further. Highly recommend to vacationers of all ages.
Excellent location, unit was beautiful, clean and wonderfully furnished. Assigned parking space a real plus as is the in unit washer and dryer. Longboat Key offers many great places to eat with various price points available. Would recommend Portobello, and this unit for renters seeking a relaxing vacation.
We have stayed on LBK for 40 years and this was the best stay ever.
The proximity to the Gulf and the constant sound of waves was the best and the updated bathrooms and kitchen were great additions. The Master bed and linens were excellent. The listing description is accurate, the property is clean and excellently maintained. We would definitely recommend this place to friends and family and the owner provided excellent service.
Two years ago, my wife and I found that magnificent condo on the "Home Away" website.
Since that moment we stayed there twice (5 weeks each year) and as long as our health condition will allow us to do so we intend to return each year for a similar stay.
Moreover as soon as a second 5 weeks period will become available in the spring we would love to rent it.
We are in total agreement with the description given by the owners of their property as well as with all the appropriate comments written by the four previous reviewers.
May we just add that ``Shopping lovers`` will enjoy a day at the Ellenton Premium Factory outlets!!
The floor plan of the condo is very good:
-the two bedrooms are located at the opposite ends of the condo. It is then possible to watch TV in a bedroom at night without disturbing the occupants of the other one.
-each bedroom has his private balcony overlooking the beach and the sea.
Finally do not forget that a trolley stops in front of the condo each twenty minutes. For seniors the cost of a ride is $0.35. For that price you will be transported north to Anna Maria Island or south to Sarasota. The trolley stops at every point of interest on the route to let you disembark and pick up other customers.
You will never regret your stay in this beautiful condo.
What a great place, we loved it and worth every penny! For us there was nothing better than falling asleep and waking up to the sound of waves; nothing between you and the Gulf of Mexico. The place is spotless and everything is new, from the furniture to the TV’s. We’ve been staying on Longboat for years and have never had such a high end place. Fantastic location. Every day we’d take long walks on the beach and then zip into St. Armand’s Circle for dinner. Constant variety, but always tasty. We’d love to stay again if it were only available!
Longboat Key, FL is a pristine key with close proximity to Sarasota, the cultural mecca of Southwest Florida. Enjoy beautiful beaches, first class golfing, tennis, boating, fishing, shopping, world class restaurants, Ringling Museum of Art, theater..... All this is available within 10 miles of our location. Runners, bikers, walkers and rollerbladers will love the 10 mile long bike path next to the Gulf of Mexico Drive.
