This condo has been owned by my Family since I was a child. My family has been vacationing here my whole life and it’s the ultimate relaxation spot with very private and well maintained beaches.

MARTIN purchased this condo in 1972

Why MARTIN chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Located in a very upscale area, this property is one of a few that allows weekly rentals on Longboat key and offers a very inviting and encouraging vacation atmosphere within a residential spot. This unit is also the only unit in the building that has a set of twin Murphy beds allowing for up to 4 people in a one bedroom condo. Most other units include much less comfortable sleeper sofas or no other way of sleeping 4 people in a 1 bedroom.

What makes this condo unique

Views of amazing sunsets and sunrises as well as 5 star restaurants and high quality shops and golf courses, conveniently placed grocery and pharmacy stores, police station, post office and public tennis courts all very close to the rental make this location very unique.

Very clean , more than I had expected.Murphy beds added room for two more people. Gorgeous beach and easy access. In the Condo, list of their choice of restaurants and take out places, all spot on. Beach private, but close to all amenities. Definitely going back.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great condo for a beach vacation. The condo itself is smallish, but we found it perfect for two people. The bathroom is downright cramped, but most people aren't spending enough time in there for that to be a problem. The bedroom had enough room for us and our luggage so that was nice. The biggest downfall of the whole condo was the mattress. It was so hard it was almost painful and we both woke up sore every morning. The living room was very spacious and had a large TV with cable, which was really nice. The unit also has Wifi. The kitchen was on the small side, but suited us just fine. It came with everything we needed (dishes, glasses, corkscrew, tin foil, dishwasher, etc.). There was a very large balcony that overlooked the parking lot and palm trees. It's so easy to get to the beach and pool and it's all just gorgeous. The location is great because you can easily walk or drive to the CVS and Publix to get everything you need for your stay. It is on a really quiet part of the island, which we thought was great, but if you want more action and night life try the Bradenton Beach area of Anna Maria Island. It's an easy and short drive up there if you prefer to stay where it's quiet and drive for entertainment. Overall, this was a great condo. VERY clean and well maintained. We would definitely book it again. A mattress upgrade would be much appreciated though!!!

Quiet Beach, Great Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Beachcomber resort during a family vacation with my parents. It was a great place to vacation. I slept in one of the in wall beds, it was just as cozy as the one back home. The place was great. Also, the grocery store across the street was convenient to grocery shop and gets margarita mix for food and drink on the beach.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Well furnished and maintained condo. We have stayed several times and have always been pleased. The property is always being updated. Location is great, right on the beach but close to town. Grocery store right across the street.
