Overview

Florida South Central Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

2br / 2 bath approx. 1500 sq ft + 200 sq ft wrap-around balcony

This unit is light and bright and in very high demand! Spacious 2 bedroom/2 bath condo offers expansive views of the turquoise waters from all angles. Most gulf front units only offer a narrow view of the water but not this unit! The living room and dining room offer a spacious, open layout with floor-to-ceiling views of the gulf from all windows. Enjoy breathtaking sunsets and warm breezes from your wrap-around balcony. The living room offers plenty of seating with a 50' flat screen T.V. The kitchen features new stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Master bedroom is large (14x19) and spacious with a dresser, wall-mounted flat screen T.V., sitting area and desk. The master bath has double sinks in a gorgeous cherry vanity with a sleek white stone counter. Great lighting and plenty of counter and cabinet space! The master shower offers a rain forest shower head, dual spray heads and a sitting bench. Master bedroom offers a large walk-in master closet approx. 7x10 (only half the closet is shown in the photo), California-style built-in shelves and full-length mirror. The second bedroom has two twin beds, large dresser with mirror, flat screen mounted T.V., another full-length mirror and large closet with built-in shelving. This unit requires a 3 month minimum rental regardless of what the 'minimum stay' might show on this rental site (some sites have limitations). Preference given to terms longer than 3 months. Discounts available. Check the schedule or contact owner for availability and discounts - fast turnaround from owner on rates, discounts, and availability. Sq footage listed is approximate and not exact.

Why Peter Larson chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

This property has wide, expansive and direct views of the gulf as opposed to other properties that offer only a narrow view of the gulf or a side view of the gulf. It is light, bright, and airy and offers views from the bedrooms as well. The entire building (inside and outside) is one of the nicest, well-maintained, upscale properties on Longboat Key. The pool is kept at a temperature of 87 degrees F every day!

What makes this condo unique

The owners of this unit pride themselves at paying attention to the 'details' and offer top-notch amenities which you wouldn't realize until after you take occupancy of any unit. For example, the sofa is a Lazy Boy recliner that offers heavenly comfort as you watch TV or view the crystal blue waters of the Gulf. The pots/pans are Cuisinart, appliances are Whirlpool (best in class), top of the line Keurig maker, Professional knife set, brand new flatware, an abundance of dishes, glasses and mugs, and all the cooking and entertaining wares you could possibly need, right down to the garlic slicer. The unit has plenty of bath towels, beach towels, extra blankets and pillows. The TV comes with a premium cable package, an upgrade from the basic cable. The unit has a wine bar and offers wireless internet. This unit is well-stocked far beyond the basics. The beds offer 'hotel-quality' comfort with the king master bed being a plush mattress with a fluffy down comforter guaranteed to make you hit the 'snooze' button. Master bedroom is large enough to provide a desk for private, quiet work space and also has a ceiling fan. The master bath offers double sinks, shower has dual sprayers, one of which is a rain forest shower head. The kitchen and baths offer plenty of counter space and storage. Their goal is to make you want to come back!

Spectacular Views and Five-star Quality

  • 5 of 5

We have rented properties on LBK for the past 10 years and this is, unquestionably, the nicest unit we have ever stayed in. When we arrived, the very first thing we noticed, beyond the incredible gulf views, was how spotlessly clean the unit was. The luxurious linens (bedding and towels) were hotel-quality. The unit was well-stocked with good, quality pots, dishes, flatware and serving bowls. The owners were very responsive when ever we had a question. What sets this unit apart from all the others is the expansive views (not a narrow view like most) of the gulf from the living room and dining room and the wrap-around balcony where we enjoyed many beautiful sunsets. We can't wait to return!

2nd visit

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from our 2nd stay at this wonderful property and still feel it is the best condo we have ever rented. The owners continue improving the ambiance and luxury touches such as a brand new master bath, living room flooring and patio doors. The sunsets are glorious and the security is excellent. Definitely a hard to find 5 star rental.

Simply Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in several condos in the Longboat Key area and this unit is by far the best! The expansive front windows overlooking the Gulf of Mexico help make this condo so unique - the view is truly stunning. We witnessed the most spectacular sunsets and our girls loved watching the dolphins play along with spotting the occasional manatee. The unit was beautifully appointed and very well equipped with everything we needed. It was very spacious for our family of four. The building design was just what we were looking for with interior entry doors and the beach and pool immediately as you exit the building. The location was perfect with a CVS pharmacy and a Publix supermarket right across the street. We highly recommend this unit and can't wait to get back!

Spectacular views of the gulf!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many places in Florida, but this condo is by far the best we have experienced. The views are magnificent and the owners have taken great care to furnish it with perfect amenities and are fastidious in the upkeep. Any questions are met with immediate response. Very secure environment, as well as most private and peaceful. We can't wait to return.
