About the property

Our Condo is located on the Gulf. As long and picturesque as its name suggests, Longboat Key's manicured lawns, sugar white beaches, dazzling sunsets and year-round warm, crystal turquoise waters are visions of understated pleasure.

Enjoy breathtaking views of Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Island living at its finest. Ocean view from living, kitchen and bedroom.

World famous powdery white sand beaches are just 50 feet from your patio door.

The area is appreciated by wildlife as well, so these waters are home to manatee, dolphins, and fish, while pelicans, osprey, and a variety of shorebirds find sanctuary here. Tennis and golf enthusiasts will find first-class facilities here, and there are several parks on the Keys to visit for a relaxing afternoon.

Whether you like to spend your time shelling, biking, shopping, fishing, golfing, or dining, opportunities for these activities are boundless on Longboat Key.

Ninety miles to Disney World and all that it offers

Conveniently located close to two international airports (25 min. drive to Sarasota, 1 hr drive to Tampa).

About The Owner

The Four Tedesco Sisters inherited this property from their parents Bud and Loraine. We feel blessed and proud to share our home away from home with you. ,

The Owner purchased this condo in 1974

Why The Owner chose Longboat Key

The quiet beach was definitely a draw to this beautiful piece of paradise.

What makes this condo unique

The most amazing feature is that it's only steps to the ocean one way and 50 steps to the pool from the front door. The grounds are manicured to perfection. The condo has been recently remodeled with all granite counter tops and newly tiled floors, new kitchen, new glass enclosed/screened in porch. Laundry accommodations steps outside front door. This is a smoke and pet free facility.

Your condo is absolutely wonderful! We have enjoyed every minute we've been here. Everything works great, it was spotless when we arrived. The weather has been fantastic as well. The other residents in the complex are so welcoming and friendly. What a wonderful experience for us!! Thank you so much.

My college age daughter and I enjoyed this lovely condo for a week long midsummer getaway! Being on the first floor meant easy access from both the parking lot and the beach! Views were wonderful and the screened in porch facing the ocean was the perfect spot for morning coffee, afternoon card games, or evening cocktails. It's position on Longboat Key was an easy drive to St Armand's Circle and Sarasota for great local restaurants.

Great condo, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We love this condo! It's great for a family or two couples. Plenty of space to sit on the enclosed lanai and enjoy the view or sit inside and chat....although, not sure why anyone would spend time inside with the beach being right outside your door!! It's a very short walk to a very un-crowded beach where lounge chairs are waiting for you. The kitchen has all the amenities you need. Every morning we enjoyed our coffee and breakfast on the lanai listening to the waves. Then we either made lunch or dinner each day in the condo, even grilled the fish the guys caught on the gas grill out front. Great little restaurant/shop center close with a few little shops, an antique store, 3 great restaurants, and an ice cream shop.....just cross the street and walk a block north! The owners are very friendly and easy to work with. We highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a great place to stay on a great beach!

Great condo, Great location, Awesome experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this condo from April 1, 2016 - April 9, 2016 for Spring Break. We drove from Michigan hoping for the best and this condo did not disappoint. It was well worth the 1,400 mile trip. The location is surperb. The community is very family oriented and quiet. The beach is steps out of the slider from the bedroom or living room. The beach is private and very nice. White sandy beach and beautiful sounds you can hear inside the condo. The condo itself was very clean. All necessities were provided. The beds were very comfy and we slept very well listening to the ocean waves. Both bathrooms had nice showers. Both bedrooms had nice TV's. The decor is up to date and fashionable. The kitchen had everything we needed to stay in and cook if we chose to. The lanai was so nice. You could open all of the windows and catch the ocean breeze. It is screened in so you could also enjoy drinks or a meal without any worry of bugs. I have nothing bad to say. We would definitely rent this unit again and appreciate the chance to have done so already!!

A wonderful week at the beach.

  • 5 of 5

This Condo was roomy and comfortable and just steps from the beach. We went to Orlando one day and shopping at the Circle the next. Mostly we enjoyed walking the not crowded non commmercial beach

morning and night and dining at local restaurants such as Rotten Ralphs on the bay and Columbia's on the Circle. The latter was so good we bought a cookbook in their eclectic gift shop.

Publix is the local grocery store and there are two relatively close whether you are traveling north or south. The people who work at these stores are friendly and helpful if you have any questions about the area.

When not in the mood for sand and surf, we enjoyed swimming in the pool that was just steps from the front door.

Had we wanted to cook...the kitchen was equipt with everything needed to prepare a meal, sans the food of course.

We had such a restful and wonderful time that we have planned to return next year.

It was a home away from home except with wonderful weather, the Gulf , the beach and no responsibilities.
