About Moe Veluswamy
This condo has been family owned for the past 35 years. We have absolutely loved it and loved every minute in Sarasota. My parents first visited Longboat Key in 1974 and bought a condo in Seaplace two years later. Then in 1984, they purchased this unit in Beachplace primarily for guests and as a rental property. They are now retired and have turned the property management responsibilities over to me, the eldest son (lucky me....actually I love it). I live in southwest Georgia, a small town called Albany. I come down to Sarasota whenever possible with my wife and kids. I think it is simply the most beautiful and peaceful place I have ever seen. We have rented this unit out for the past 25 years. We focus on establishing long-term relationships with our guests. Our first renters stayed year-around for 12 yrs. Then for 8 years, we enjoyed renting to a retired couple but just during the winter season. Now we are looking to establish new relationships with those wanting a winter or summer home, year after year. Of course, the occasional vacationer or holiday guest is always welcome.

Why Moe Veluswamy chose Longboat Key
Beachplace is a stunning property. And Longboat Key is a jewel on Florida's Gulf Coast. I have traveled all over the world, seen some of the world's most famous beaches. I promise none of them beats Longboat Key. It is simply beautiful. See the pictures, although they don't do justice. You will see as you drive from Sarasota out to the island. It's like entering your own personal paradise. Sorry to be a little over the top, but you will see for yourself once you arrive...
What makes this Condo unique
This unit is totally updated, completed in Jan 2012 after 8 months of intensive work. Then in summer 2015, we completed a window replacement project to open up the views and sight lines. NOW BE CAREFUL HERE....You will see lots of ads that say updated, remodeled, renovated, etc. Look carefully... most have been superficially brushed up. Perhaps a new countertop, or new tile floor, maybe new paint. This unit was totally remodeled from top to bottom. We removed walls and ceilings, relocated the HVAC air handling unit to open up the kitchen, raised fire sprinkler lines to raise the ceiling, basically opened every room to make the interior space as large as possible. Then we built a custom kitchen, custom baths, and made lots of other improvements: Here are some highlights: •Beautiful kitchen with custom premium cherry cabinets, Brazilian granite counters and backsplash, stainless steel appliances, and porcelain tile floor •New LG Washer and Dryer in Unit •New hardwood floors throughout - Amendiom Brazilian oak harvested under the principles of sustainable forest management •Master bath with custom-built walnut spa vanity, Brazilian granite top, two black pearl vessel sinks, charcoal porcelain tile, multi-head shower with stone tile surround and clear glass enclosure. •Guest bath with custom-built cherry vanity, Brazilian granite top, patterned glass vessel sink, porcelain tile, Jacuzzi tub with multi-head shower and stone tile surround. •Open design and layout - removed walls, raised ceilings, created an open and bright floorplan •New lighting throughout •New Hunter-Douglas window treatments •New high definition flat screen TVs (Sony) and Bly-Ray players in all rooms •New high glass panel door in the master bedroom to allow you to wake up with a georgious view of the gulf. Trust me...no other unit looks like this one. But don't take my word for it. Just look at the pictures and compare to other units in Beachplace.

A piece of Paradise on Longboat Kwy
We had a truly fabulous experience renting this condo for the 5th time.... yes the 5th time.
A Superb condo in a great location and very caring considerate host.
a perfect spot!
What a beautiful place to spend our spring break. We couldn't have asked for a more gracious host than Moe. The condo is spotless with every amenity. The grounds are spectacular with a large and mostly uncrowded pool. The beach is just steps away, with umbrellas and lounge chairs. All in all a perfect get away for our family of 4!
A great place to stay.
We love this condo and Beach Place! The condo is very clean and well maintained. It is beautifully decorated and has everything you need for an extended stay.
A gem on Longboat Key
My wife and I just completed our third annual two-month stay at this modern, well-appointed unit at Beachplace, and we are looking forward to our fourth visit next year. Moe remains a wonderfully involved and conscientious landlord. He is readily available to address any questions or concerns (of which there were few) and checks in occasionally to make sure that everything is okay. He treats what might be best seen as a minor inconvenience, a temporarily powerless television for example, as a problem that requires immediate attention and ensures that any fixes are handled promptly.
The unit itself is clean and elegant with modern appliances and plenty of cooking, cleaning, and other supplies. My wife notes that it feels much more like a home than a simple beach crash pad. We have rented elsewhere in Florida and seen several other spaces at Beachplace and believe that Moe's place is at the top of the line.
We are less familiar with other complexes on Longboat but we can say that we have been pleased with Beachplace. It is located conveniently to St. Armand's Circle and the Sarasota side of the Key. We like the Beachplace layout, its excellent beach, and stellar facilities, including a huge hot tub, a nice pool, and a stocked fitness center. In all, we feel extremely lucky to have found a first-rate unit in a top-notch facility.
Ted & Debbie -- I am so glad to hear you enjoyed another winter break at Beachplace. Your words are too kind.....I really appreciate the complements. As always, I am looking for ways to improve your experience. I hope you enjoyed the new large screen TV and soundbar this year. If you have any ideas or suggestions, I am all ears. Just shoot me a text whenever an idea comes to you.
Looking forward to hosting you again next season.
Take care, Moe
Fabulous property and Moe is incredibly attentive to every detail
Thanks for a wonderful stay Moe!
