About Eric McCartney

We are an international couple currently living part time in Europe. The condo is our home and permanent residence while we are in the US about seven months out of the year. My wife and I love to travel. We have bought this condo to be our future year round home but are happy to share it with others until that time comes.

Eric McCartney purchased this condo in 2012

Why Eric McCartney chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

When we decided to make Florida our home, we viewed more than 50 properties within the Sarasota metropolitan area. Beachplace was the last property on our list and when we arrived, we were blown away. The gated property offers 24 hour security and the near 30 acres of manicured lawns, flowering trees, and palms made us realize we had found our tropical paradise. The views from our properties are stunning and although our building is not directly on the beach.......the overall property is. No building is more than 50 yards from more than 300 meters of white sandy private beach which is nearly deserted during the months outside the winter season. Located at the lower end of the Island, Beachplace is a stones throw away from St. Armands Circle and downtown Sarasota. It is also just a 5 minute drive to the Publix Supermarket located at the town center of Longboat Key. We absolutely love it here.......shhhhh......don't tell any one once you've come and have discovered paradise lost!

What makes this condo unique

Updated in 2013 and tastefully furnished in a contemporary but comfortable fashion.

Beachplace

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Beachplace. We loved the condo and the beautiful grounds.

All was well kept and clean.. Being close to St. Armand's circle was a plus...we enjoyed the walks on the beach and seeing all the different birds there. It was very relaxing. We would definitely recommend this condo.

Truly Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed this condo very much. It was very clean, comfortable, and had a very well equipped kitchen. We had a couple of minor issues, that the owner, administrator and maintenance people were easy to contact and quick to remedy the issues. The grounds at Beach Place are beautifully maintained and the beach is spectacular. The complex itself is very quiet, but only a few minutes away is St Armand's Circle, with its various great shops and restaurants.

We would highly recommend both Beach Place and this particular condo.
