Longboat Key Condo Rental Photos and Description

Beach Front 2 Bed/2Bath with Full Gulf View from LR, MBR & balcony

Gulf Front with Fantastic Sunsets overlooking miles of glorious soft white sandy beach and smoothing ocean sounds. This is the most pristine and natural part of the Island. Enjoy long relaxing walks on the beach and sunsets. This feels more like a retreat and the Northern End of Longboat Key is unspoiled and is perfect for long walks, shelling, bird watching. It's not unusual to see dolphins playing just off the surf. Plantation shutters give this home the real Florida feel.

All private beaches, lush landscaping, and minimal commercial development. Great casual and fine dining restaurants on Longboat Key, St. Armand's Circle and Downtown Sarasota, several within walking distance of our condo.

The unit has been completely updated . Enjoy the 46' Sony flatscreen HDTV, cable, WI-FI and 10 foot his and hers stand-up paddleboards.
