Compliments of RVA, Beach Castle Resort expands from the bayside of Longboat Key to the Gulf – providing a place to launch your kayak and cast a line, a chance to spot exotic birds that stop here for our mild temperatures and to view a picture-perfect sunset over the Gulf of Mexico -- all courtesy of Mother Nature.

The grounds here are impeccable – from the well-manicured vegetation to the vast palm trees that dot this serene Longboat Key location. The buildings at Beach Castle are the color of sunshine and are accented by Bahama shutters and railings that resemble palm trees. Each unit is individually owned, which means no unit is alike and provides a unique vacation experience to our guests. However, all units provide a full kitchen, living room and private lanais – never compromising the comforts of home.

This secluded hideaway exudes a classic charm that, as vacationers, we yearn for. A place to get away from it all, relish in the Florida sunshine and reconnect with family and friends; all this while enjoying white-sand beaches, privacy and most importantly, vacation memories that last a lifetime.

Limited Membership Privileges: Guests of Beach Castle Resort #23 will have the option of temporary membership privileges at Cedars Tennis Resort located at 645 Cedars Court on Longboat Key. The limited temporary membership allows the guest access to 10 fully-lit Har-Tru tennis courts (after 1 p.m. daily and subject to availability), community bicycles, fishing pier and Jr. Olympic heated swimming pool. The guest will also have access to the Cedars Cafe and Tiki Bar and fitness center.

Accommodations: Beach Castle Resort is a quiet, 21-unit condominium resort midway on the exclusive island of Longboat Key with a variety of views including Gulf front, Bay front, pool and garden views.

Unit #23 Features: One-bedroom, one-bathroom ground floor unit with bay views from the privacy of your lanai.

Any essentials required after the initial provided, such as toilet paper, dish soap, etc. is the responsibility of the guest.

Dining: Although Beach Castle Resort does not feature an on-site restaurant, it is centrally located to nearby hotspots – some within walking distance! Our recommendation is The Blue Dolphin Café, a local favorite that features the flavors if the island and is just a short stroll from your front door. Longboat Key restaurants include Harry’s Continental Kitchens, Euphemia Haye Restaurant and The Haye Loft Lounge & Dessert Room, The Dry Dock Waterfront Grill, Mattison’s Steakhouse, and MarVista Backside Restaurant and Pub.

Attractions: Longboat Key is rich in high-end boutiques and five-star restaurants making it an ideal destination for vacationers who like their beach getaway on the swankier side. As a barrier island to the town known as the area's "cultural capital", an assortment of entertainment options can be found at nearby Sarasota where attractions and activities abound for all age groups.

The island of Longboat Key is home to several premier, private golf courses, however nearby Sarasota and Bradenton areas offer top-rated golf courses a short drive off the island for golfers of every handicap.

The Centre Shops is located just north of Beach Castle Resort and includes shopping options of art galleries, restaurants, a dry cleaner, pharmacy and a UPS store – all the ingredients for the perfect spot to pick-up all your necessary beach essentials and remembrances. If you’re looking for higher-end shopping, traveling to Lido Key’s St. Armand’s Circle is well worth the trip. Rumor has it that circus magnate John Ringling won Lido Key in a poker game that turned the sister island of Longboat Key into a world-famous attraction.

                                                                    Just what I was looking for, serious R&R, romantic get-a-way-- it truly was a home away from home. The condo was beautifully decorated and the kitchen was fully stocked. Most importantly the bayside views were gorgeous! A few steps away and you could watch the sunset come up on the bay or simply sit outside on the patio with coffee. The ocean was a 2-minute walk across the street -- quicker than traversing a highrise hotel resort building. The pool and jacuzzi very well maintained. Beautifully landscaped. You can opt to stay on the island or take a 5-minute drive to all the Sarasota sites. Go sailing with Catherine -- a must do! Worth every penny!

                                                                    Very relaxing stay at the beach

                                                                    Liz K.

                                                                    I stayed here with my husband for 2 nights and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The apartment is modern, clean and comfortable, it is situated on the bay side where there is a dock with a bench where you can sit and enjoy the sunrise. There is also a pool and jacuzzi on the bayside and access to a private beach is a short walk across to the beachside. Umbrellas and loungers and towels are provided making it a very easy beach visit.

                                                                    Restaurants, bars and shops are all within walking distance as is Durante Park which provides an opportunity for a walk in the shady paths through mangrove forest.

                                                                    All in all the location and apartment were great and we would definitely stay here again.
