About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Beautiful Gulf views from this Longboat Key Condo, only 10 steps to the beach with unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico. Two bedroom, 2 bath condo with access to the Gulf of Mexico, Tennis Court, and pool. Newly remodeled and has everything for a wonderful vacation. 46 inch flat screen HDTV. Large enclosed patio to watch the spectacular sunsets from.

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. 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.

Disney World and all its attractions are a mere 90 miles away, making a day trip to the Magic Kingdom possible.

About The Owner

My parents bought this condo before it was built in 1975. I have spent every vacation since on this wonderful island. Its very peaceful and my way of escaping the grind of everyday life.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1975

What makes this condo unique

Near private beaches. LBK is all vacation

homes, so not many people on the

beach on any given day.

Seafood caught that day. See locations of Cortez Seafood and Star Fish

Seafood. About a 15 minute drive from the condo.

Longboat Key is a beautiful place. Great beaches, shopping, and great places to eat !

  • 2 of 5

The condo area is beautiful, very well kept. Great location. However this condo isn't completely renovated as described here. Yes there has been work done but more to do. Living room furniture is VERY dirty. If you're okay with the refrigerator having open jars of food from previous guest and other open food in the cabinets this my be your place. We felt like we walked into someone else's personal space.

Owner's Response: Sorry you were disappointed. I send every renter a welcome document that states you might find various condiments in the kitchen. If they bother you, throw them out. I have a number of repeat renters that appreciate not having to buy ketchup, mustard, salad dressing, sugar, etc, for a short stay. You are renting a home with VRBO, not staying at a hotel.

Another great vacation at Longboat Key's Covert Properties

  • 4 of 5

This is our 6th visit to LBK and first to this particular unit of the three Covert properties. We leased a first floor unit of Covert II that enabled us to walk right out to the beach (100 feet) that provided easy access. The pool in Covert II is very nice and offers a respite from the sand (which was blowing some due to 12-15 MPH winds on several days). Overall the unit was in good repair and comfortable. The owner responded quickly to some emails so we were please with his responsiveness. LBK is a great vacation spot with access to other beaches, Sarasota and a host of great restaurants. Our new restaurant favorite is the Bayou Tavern (Italian and pizza); excellent authentic Italian food. Established favorites continue to be Harry's Continental Kitchen (superb), The Lazy Lobster, Drydock, and Marvista. The famous Columbia Reataurant is good but beware of the loud environment. Do rent bikes because LBK is very bike friendly.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great vacation. Just one correction. This is Covert III (3). Covert II is next door going north on the beach. They were built by the same developer, so they look similar.

Neat, clean and great beach access

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at this condo again. This is the third year I have stayed at Covert III. Great beach access, convenient shoppes nearby, and wonderful pool. Everything was just as expected...not a single problem with booking our stay, getting in and getting out. If you are looking for reliable, comfortable, basic accommodations, I suggest this condo.

love this place!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a beach front, ocean front get-away, look no further! My family of 5 adults loved staying here! The beds were comfortable, kitchen had everything we needed, plenty of room to spread out, pool was great, owners are top notch!! Easy first floor unit, laundry upstairs- bring quarters. The very best thing about staying here are THE VIEWS! The location can't be beat! Honestly, I can't believe how affordable this condo is, being right on the beach! We'll be back!
