About the Owner

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.

We had a great time in this ideally situated home, we already knew the area very well it was our 5 th visit at this time of the year, the position on the beachgave us wonderful views and great walks, we found the apartment well furnished and clean, the only thing that could have improved our experience would have been a small welcome pack such as bread milk etc. As we were arriving very late.

We would definitely return

Condo stay for 2 months

  • 5 of 5

The listing description is completely accurate. The property is modern, immaculately clean and in a very quiet condominium complex. There are 180 degree beach views and a walk out to a private sandy Gulf beach.

The environment is safe and it was wonderful to sleep to the sound of the surf.

Longboat Key has convenient shopping and good restaurants. There are fresh seafood stores. Tennis court on premises and nearby Municipal Golf. Occasional traffic congestion. easy ride to Sarasota airport. The best recommendation I can make is that we are going back next year

Customer service was a moot point as nothing was wrong.

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The description of the apartment given is absolutely correct and we can recommend renting the apartment.

It has everything you need and want at a vacation home directly on the beach. It is spacious and clean and all appliances are in best order. There are beach accessories also at hand.

The owners are very friendly and provide more than enough information in binders on the apartment itself and on the area. The information provided helps you find your way around very easily, if you are new to the area. In case you need help with something or you have questions there is a person you can contact that provides immediate help.

We can definitly recommend this apartment and if we are back in the area, we would try and rent is again, if available.

Comfort, elegance, quality, views

This is a one of a kind condo. If you agree that less is more, North Longboat Key, Whitney Beach and this specific condo cannot be beat. The owners of this unit have thought through every detail. The unit is uncluttered, spacious, attractive and very comfortable -- from the seating to the beds to the linens. The kitchen is well stocked and very easy to work in. The owners are a pleasure to work with. We hated to leave and plan to return.

Best decision for a relaxing and inspiring holiday

  • 5 of 5

What you see is truly what you get. A clean, modern, luxurious and very functional apartment with nothing left to wish for!

We were 2 people but even a family of 4 can comfortably stay in this wonderful flat as space and storage is really not an issue.

The flat is easy to manage and the complex is well kept and taken care of on a daily basis. There is a community pool with sun chairs available for use, sun chairs are also disposable on the beach for those who prefer open water.

Beach access is right in front of the flat and the beach is wide and lovely to spend time at with mind boggling sunsets.

The living room is spacious and the entertainment system (TV) very modern. What we liked was the iPod docking station, a small but nice detail. The windows are screened so you can enjoy the fresh sea breeze and hear the waves rolling onto the beach.

The kitchen is very modern and well equipped, if you are a Nespresso lover there is a machine but it might be a good idea to bring your own capsules as we could not find a store in LBK or Sarasota which sold them.

The master bedroom has its own TV and small walk-in closet as well as bathroom. The twin bedroom is very spacious with wide beds and closet space all along the wall. The "office corner" and washing machine tower is discreetly located in the twin bedroom, as well as another bathroom and toilet.

There is extra storage space for beach equipment and toys if needed just outside the flat which we found convenient due to the sand that we did not want to keep sweeping from the floor.

We did not use the tennis court or BBQ area as we were quite active throughout our stay and enjoyed the beach and pool more but both seemed well maintained. The BBQ area is not covered, there is a hut with a table where you can eat but the pit itself stands freely and is a charcoal BBQ.

We will definitely try and stay here again if we come back and the flat is available and can truly recommend this property to anyone who enjoys a modern beach experience with an unforgettable view and especially sunset.

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Tampa at 60 Miles Nearest Barpub : on the other side of the road at 100 Metres Nearest Golf : at 5 Miles Car: recommended

Nearest airport: at 15 miles. International Airport Tampa at 60 miles. Car: recommended Longboat Key is a barrier island off the coast of Sarasota and Bradenton, approximately 60 miles south of Tampa, and easily accessible by car and from the Sarasota/Bradenton International Airport. Interstate 75 and US 41 are the major routes into the area. Coming from the north you can reach Longboat Key through Bradenton by way of exit #41 off Interstate 75.

Stretching eleven miles between the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay, Longboat Key provides an ideal beach and bay front setting.

Instead you are welcomed to a land of tasteful luxury and tempting quiet pleasures.
