About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

Cedars East Resort is a unique vacation getaway with a Florida paradise setting of palms, mangroves, and greenery along walking paths throughout the property. Canals and a bay side fishing dock add to the variety of natural settings. If a day at the beautiful white sand beaches is not your choice, the junior olympic-size salt water swimming pool may be just for you.

With the townhouse setting there is a feeling of privacy and spaciousness missing at other tightly packed facilities. There is an enclosed large garage and plenty of guest parking. Pool and beach accessories are available for guest use. This unit is facing directly west, nearest to the beaches, bike paths and large 32 acre nature preserve with walking trails.

Fresh accessories and paint were added in late 2010 with new cherry kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities and stainless appliances added in April 2011. Cream leather queen sleeper sofa and loveseat in living area with 9 feet high ceiling give a spacious feel; accessories give it a warm, inviting atmosphere. Flat screen TV in living & master bedroom areas. The large great room, dining room, and kitchen are on the main floor along with a half bath. Upstairs there is a large master bedroom with King-size bed, private bath, double vanities, phone and TV. The guest bedroom has twin beds, TV, phone with a full bath next door. Sofa converts to queen bed; two folding cots also available. A screened lanai is a great place for breakfast in the mornings. Come and enjoy a setting that is family-friendly as well as intimate. Full size washer and dryer near bedrooms.

Area is perfect for cycling and you'll see many cyclists on the roads and walkways. 5 bikes on site: 3 men; 2 women. Bike helmets, kept clean and disinfected, are available. Also, attachable baby seat and locks for use. A bike rental office is a two minute walk away; rent by day or week or longer.

Keywords: Three story townhouse; only two units per building give privacy, lots of natural light and extra quietness. Enclosed large garage and storage on ground floor; screened lanai off second floor living area; bedrooms on third level.

About The Owner

Owners are retirees from the Bluegrass of Kentucky who enjoy the amenities found on Longboat Key and our spacious townhouse. We have been updating our property since purchased and it has everything anyone needs to live for a week, a month or a year. It is our home in LBK so we are attempting to fill with everything we, our adult children & grandsons would need and that will make your stay more like being 'at home' and comfortable.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Almost all positives for us! Amenities like crazy!, very well stocked, great proximity to beach, great condition, great cleanliness. The owners are super nice and helpful, too. The pool looked very nice, though we didn't use it. There does not appear to be a jacuzzi in the complex, in case that's important to you and you've seen that in other Cedars' ads. I'd say it was a home away from home, but it's better than my home!

Perfect low-key getaway

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed during mid-May during a slower time in the area. The accomodations were very well kept, and the owner takes pride in clutivating a space in which the guests feel as if they are "at home" which is quite the opposite feeling one gets staying in an extended stay type hotel, where you still know it's a hotel. It was the perfect relaxing getaway needed away from the fast paced life of the city.

Spacious Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was spacious, clean, very organized (labels on everything), and the kitchen was fully functional with all varieties of pots, pans, and cooking utensils. There were bikes, beach toys and chairs. The beaches here are versatile with boat ramp, clean bathrooms, showers, playground, picnic tables and plenty of free parking.

Longboat Key stay

The rental was wonderfull. Just what my family needed . It included everything you would need for an extended vacation. Kitchen, Bathrooms, bed rooms , and living space were all new and clean. Everything was labeled clearly right down to the light switches. Included a garage, and 4 Adult Bicycles skim boards, beach chairs, ect. and 2 extra cots. We have 6 small children and with the cots we all slept comfortably.

Longboat key

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I, and our three adult children just finished a week stay here while we were in Sarasota for a wedding. We had a fabulous time, and for having five adults there, found it very spacious and easy to be comfortable. It's possibly even nicer than the photos! All of the kitchen appliances were very nice so it was very easy to cook there and enjoy eating far more inexpensively than eating out. All the sleeping areas were spacious and very comfortable. The bathrooms were really nice as well. The owners very nicely labeled all the switches, so there was no question about which light you needed, which was the disposal, etc.

Although my kids did go across the road and run on the beach for exercise, we did not find that walking across to the beach through the buildings there really worked for us. We either went a very short distance north to Coquina Beach, or a short distance south to some of the beach accesses with parking. Since we had chairs and a cooler (and our bags with towels, suncreen, cameras, etc) that really worked very well for us and they were great beaches.

We felt nicely isolated from "city" living, which for us was great, as the kids had enough wedding activities in the evening and beaching-it during the day, that they didn't need the nightlife.

I would certainly recommend this property!
