Overview

Longboat Key Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Adorable and only 50 steps to awesome Longboat beach directly across the street is the beach access. This is a very private part of Longboat and often you will not see a soul. I was visiting in the height of season and only saw a handful of people. If it is privacy you want you got it. It is all brand new with a Queen bed and sleeper sofa for sleeping arrangements. It has all new appliances with a dishwasher too.

Beautiful and a great escape! Beach directly across the street about 50 steps. You can hear and see the Gulf from your unit. Everyone falls in love with my unit.

A large shopping plaza, Avenue of the Flowers, is behind the complex, offering a large grocery store, wine and liquor store, drug store, video rentals, specialty shops, and restaurants. High quality Municipal Tennis Courts are one block away and a four-foot wide sidewalk extends for most of Longboat Key with seven to eight miles for jogging, rollerblading, walking, and biking, and walking your dog. One can also walk the beach for the same distance, and shelling is a favorite activity.

There are also bike lanes on both sides of Gulf of Mexico Drive for extreme bike riders. Longboat Key is a very upscale barrier island which is connected by bridges to Anna Maria Key to the North and St. Armand's Key and Sarasota to the South. Sarasota Airport is an easy 15-20 minute drive and Tampa International Airport is an hour's drive North.

2 miles from the famous and lovely St. Armands Circle. Walk or take the Trolley or park in the many spaces provided.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place! Nice having beach chairs/towels/umbrella to take to the beach. The place was very clean and updated. The manager Mark answered any questions I had and told me if I needed anything to let him know. We spent a lot of time at St. Armands and Cortez, so we were located right between the two. Cant say enough good things about this place. Miss it already! Would definitely recommend this unit!

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this adorable condo in Longboat Key. It was very clean & upgraded. The furniture was awesome & comfortable. The beach access was right in front of the property. It was a big plus that our puppy could stay with us. I highly recommend this place. We hope to stay here next year.

Awesome, Beautiful, Convenient

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very helpful, everything was in order, plenty of supplies, towels for bath and beach, chairs, noodles, cooler, furnishings were comfortable and stylish! I love the shiny floor tiles! AC worked well, kitchen was fully stocked for cooking and prep, bathroom was modern and the spa shower is wonderful. It was so quiet, and we were excited to watch gorgeous sunsets from our living room! The outdoor shower and foot wash were a great idea, washer dryers( 2) were always available and took big loads! We walked over to PUBLIX daily for meal items! Fantastic!

Relaxing beach getaway in Longboat Key!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was in perfect condition and fantastic for a beach getaway! We had a great time on the beach and in the longboat key area. The condo has a nice screened in porch which provides a nice place to relax in the morning and night. The condo is right next to a clay court tennis complex, which was top notch. We will definitely use this condo again if we vacation in the area again!

Amazing Time

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time ever using VRBO to book a vacation rental. I was worried because I never had the best of luck. The first interaction with Mark made all my worries go away and he was so quick to reply back to my emails. I had many questions and he did not mind at all answering all my silly little questions. The pictures do not do the place any justice as it is a perfect location for beach lovers. The condo itself had everything we needed from beach chairs, towel and a cooler to bring to the beach. Someone mention the shower and it loved it too. The condo is the perfect location as it’s not too far from downtown Sarasota, Anna Maria and Bradenton Beach. We go every year and cannot wait to book our next vacation to longboat key and staying at this wonderful condo. We would highly recommend this location to our friends and family.

Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here until our permanent home was ready to move in. The unit was exactly as in the picture, only the location and pictures simply cannot describe the perfect location! 30 seconds to the beach - time it! Plus, the beach is almost empty, clean and water clear. Today we saw a pod of dolphins jumping about 8:30 a.m. across perfectly calm water against a blue sky.

Everything one needs is in the unit, and the bed and pillows are better than any hotel I've ever been to. Beach chairs, umbrellas, float things, cooler were all in the unit. Nice screened balcony. Unit was clean, and ours had a fantastic shower. There's an outside shower across the small parking lot next to the coin laundry.

Parking lot is smaller, so don't bring lots of cars. We had one which fit nicely.

Reservation process was a snap, instructions on entry (keypad) and wireless setup were prompt and easy to understand, and Mark the manager was amazing. I've never had such an easy time with a manager even with our move-to-new-home issues that Mark was so good about accommodating.

Even though we're moving to Sarasota permanently, this is #1 on our spot for visitors to stay for so many reasons. Obviously the beach access, which is better than even the hotels located on the beach. But a quick drive down to St Armand's for a drink; walking the dog at night down the sidewalk along Gulf of Mexico Road or even around the circles in St Armands (stores have water dishes for dog-walkers). I don't know what it is like "in season" but I think September is fantastic: hot temperatures but great breezes, no crowds, no traffic, beach empty.
