About Theo and Elise

We live and work in Amsterdam and have a young daughter. In our sparetime we love to go walking, invite friends for a nice diner or visit one of the many Museums in Amsterdam. Amsterdam packs tons of variety into a fairly small space so there is always a lot to do. Amsterdam’s Canal Ring, the bridges, barges and bicycles set a typical Amsterdam scène. We love to work and live here but Longboat Key is our favorite place for a relaxing vacation.

Theo and Elise purchased this condo in 2010

Why Theo and Elise chose Longboat Key

Theo visited Longboat Key 25 years ago and he thought at that time, this is the most beautiful beach I have ever seen and here is where I want to buy a condo when it is possible. His dream came truth in 2009. We updated this Gulffront condo to an European modern style and are very happy with it.

What makes this condo unique

First class accommodation that is ideally located for a very relaxing vacation. Private beach, wheather, friendly people, first class restaurants and nature of Longboat Key. This kind of nature and beaches you do not find in Europa and that makes this an unique place.

Wonderful month on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo overlooking the Gulf and beautiful beach. Very quiet and beautifully furnished and well equipped. Only suggestion might be to add additional flatware.? We occasionally came up short since we usually ran the dishwasher only once a day.

Beach Living At It's Best

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed at this property during the entire month of July 2017. We had an amazing experience. We've been renting properties on for over 8 years and this condo is now on our "Top 3 Favorite" rentals. The property is all about location, view, floor plan and amenities. If your looking for a non-touristy and private retreat on the beach in the Sarasota area, Whitney Beach in Longboat Key is a perfect location. The second floor beach and ocean view is priceless. The condo is very comfortable and with all the amenities any home renter will need during your stay. We really liked that the condo community is small with just few buildings on the ocean front side offering a lot of privacy. The condo's layout is great due to the open concept of the living room, dinning room and kitchen which makes the unit feel larger and spacious. It's stylish modern contemporary decor is simple yet sophisticated. Everything you need from shopping, dinning and entertainment are just a few minutes drive away. We'd like to also mention that the condo owners were wonderful to work with, booking the property directly with them was effortless. They were very professional, efficient and helpful during our entire booking process and rental experience. We are definitely returning for another stay. If you are considering this property, look no further.

Wonderful Condo - Stunning View!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the month of April 2017. We had an absolutely wonderful stay here.

Loved the way the condo was set up for maximizing the view. The pool is wonderful and we spent lots of afternoons there. The location was wonderful for us to visit all the places and restaurants we enjoy.

Thank you!

A wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We've just ended our month long stay at this lovely condominium. This property is beautifully decorated and very well equipped with comfortable beds, ample bedding and towels, all the kitchen necessities plus up to date appliances. The beach is beautiful! The sunsets take your breath away! We have been extremely pleased with the ease of communication with the owners who have been most attentive.

If we had one comment to recommend for this property it would be to bring your own beach chairs . The complex has lots available for you to use, however the nightly storage location for the chairs is at the farthest end of the complex and it was a difficult trek each night to return them.

All in all we would definitely recommend renting this condo!!

Wonderful Relaxing Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo on Whitney Beach is exactly as pictured on the website. The beautiful beach is right outside your door for long walks and shelling. From the 2nd floor there are great views of the beach and sunsets. The location, on the north end of the Key, was very convenient to restaurants on Anna Maria Island, as well as, the fresh fish market in nearby Cortez. Having the washer and dryer in the unit is a huge plus. The pool is very nice although there is no shade in the pool area. The owners responded very quickly to any emails.
