Unique Benefits

We are one of the few condos that with just a few steps you walk out onto the beach on Gulf of Mexico. The unique benefit is waking up on the Key with the Gulf of Mexico outside your door. The choices of going for a walk, a swim, a bike ride, kayaking, or just kicking back with your favorite book. There are so many things to do on or off Longboat Key. With so many great restaurants, you don't have to leave the Keys. Set your own pace and have your best vacation ever. It's up to you!

Why Kids Love It

The heated pool, the endless beach, chasing geckos, flying kites, bike rides, fishing and the rec center nearby with basketball, tennis, pickle ball, shuffle board. Oh yes! The pool again is usually a favorite as well as finding the perfect shell for that special someone or for your own collection. Your choices are limitless.

Attractions Within Walking Distance

During our stay, we will walk in every direction and never do the same route twice as we explore the island. This year we saw the bald eagle nest for the first time. We popped into some open houses and spoke with some local realtors. We walked into Sarasota over the bridge. Quite an impressive view. Depending on your abilities there are many places to walk to. Within a few minutes there is Publix, CVS, and all of the shops nearby, Town library, Post Office, ATM, tennis courts, golf course, and the marina. A little further walk going north can take you to the recreation center, for bike rentals, kayak rentals and many other things to see and do. Whether you want to watch or play or just have fun, it is up to you!

Favorite Places To Eat

Way too many good restaurants to mention. Also,depends on what you like and your budget. One of my favorite places to eat is at a picnic table outside the Beachcomber while enjoying twilight after the sunset. Pick up some food at Publix across the street and/ or cook on the grill. Kick back and have a beer or a glass of wine a just take it all in after another beautiful day.

Owner Info

Philip MacDonald

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We are from New England and appreciate getting away to warmer temperatures during the winter and planning a summer escape on the Cultural Coast of Florida or as we like to call our second home Longboat Key. We purchased this condo after having a few disappointments while renting. We have enjoyed many vacations spent in Longboat Key and treasure the memories of our children having fun as they grew up. It is a great place for kids, a great place for families, and a great place for anyone whether you want to just relax or explore. To be honest, most families tell me that the pool is the best part for the kids. Long after their stay, the pool is what they are still talking about. Our family enjoyed all of our sunset swims while watching the sunsets night after night. There is also a grill available to cook on if you just want to stay at home and relax for an evening. Playing catch with a baseball, a quick came of touch football, flying kites, riding bikes, or just exploring has been great fun over the years. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we do. Thank you!

Why this property? We have been traveling to Longboat Key for 25 years. We have known many friends that stayed on LBK also. After traveling to many islands, foreign countries, and cruises, we realized what gem Longboat Key really is. The people that you meet in LBK are truly friendly. With so many things to do on the Key and surrounding areas, you can stay very busy or you can choose to just beach it. There is a sophisticated side to LBK also with the many restaurants and boutiques to visit. Or you can go fishing! Choose you own fun! Plan your adventure! Visit Longboat Key!
