About Linda Adrian

We fell in love with Longboat Key on our first visit over a decade ago, and came back the next year to buy our own place. We discovered that we didn't miss the grey sky and cold winter of Chicago. Years later, we are now retired and live full-time on the island. We bought this wonderful unit at Banyan Bay for our own enjoyment (we call it our 'Northern home' although it's only 10 minutes away) and to serve as overflow for visiting family members. We also have many regular renters but would welcome your inquiry re: specific dates. I month minimum.

Linda Adrian purchased this condo in 2003

Why Linda Adrian chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We had been looking for property for some time but nothing really 'grabbed' us. When we walked into this open house all we needed to see was the wonderful view of the Gulf of Mexico. Although we did some 'flipping' of other properties back when property values on Longboat were going up 30% a year, this is the one we can't part with.

What makes this condo unique

This is one of the 8 units directly on the beach in this 44-unit complex at Banyan Bay Club. Note: 1 month minimum.

Our unit, # 223, (VRBO # 397210) is a studio, but there are also 1 and 2 bedroom units.

Excellent Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this gorgeous condo for several years and just keep coming back! The condo is well furnished, cosy and inviting and is our PERFECT location, right on the beautiful sandy beach of Longboat Key. Restaurants and shops are all close by. It is the perfect get-away for a relaxing beach holiday.

We have rented various accommodations on this Key for more than forty years and this year we spent a month at this lovely condo. It ranks very close to being one of the best from the aspect of what to expect from a beach front unit. Everything from location, parking, lovely flower gardens, cleanliness, household equipment, access to beach and pool left little to be desired. The landlords live on the key and were very accommodating. This unit is on our Bucket List for our next visit to Longboat.

My wife and I have been going to Banyan Bay for 10 years, we just love the place. There is so much you can do are you can do nothing if you desire. The beach is steps away which is a big advantage if you don't want to walk too far. The property inside is very clean, the outside is well maintained. Lots of places to shop if that is your thing. Shopping and restaurants are close to this location. The two bedroom unit is fully furnished with everything you need for your visit. Through our visits we have known the owners well and they are a super nice couple. We highly recommend. it.----td-md

This is a wonderful first-floor condo located right on the beach at Long Boat Key. Step out the door and you are almost at surf side. It is comfortable, spacious and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is nicely set up and the second bedroom is well-separated from the master bedroom. The owners are a delight. We rented for three consecutive years, and would renew if our health enabled us to. Couldn't be a better place to be!

This island is Paradise! Just 12 miles long, and 1/2 mile wide at its widest point. Water water everywhere. A very classy, elegant island! Nearby is St. Armand's Circle, with wonderful shopping, galleries, and outdoor/indoor dining. From there, just over a beautiful fixed span bridge to Sarasota, the cultural center of the West Coast of Florida. Much to do everywhere.

4 week minimum rental due to Longboat Key ordinance disallowing short-term rentals for properties not classified as resorts. For shorter vacations, check out the reasonably priced units at SeaHorse Beach Resort. All of the units except one are right on the beach, as is the pool. Our unit, # 223 (VRBO 397210) is a studio unit (sleeps 3) but they also have 1-2 bedroom units.
