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 Florida South Central Gulf Coast

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.


Excellent! 4.7/5 -

Our best stay on Longboat Key

  • 5 of 5

312 Whitney Beach was at least as advertised, arguably even better. The furnishings are appropriate and modern, the rooms spacious, the view of the sunset without equal. The owners responded to our queries immediately and helpfully.

BEWARE! Disappointing and hidden costs!

  • 1 of 5

On arrival the beach and pool were closed due to work, the owner states he was not aware of this, however, other owners said they had been informed, only a few condos were being used. The beach reopened 25 days later, 3 days before we left. The kitchen is tired and poorly equipped, cabinet door mechanisms broken. Small discount offered by owner, but he did ask that we did not give a bad review. On return money was deducted from our safety deposit for extra electric and washing. As the beach was closed we had to leave the condo each day, using less electric than would have been used. Only the bed linen was left as directed in the manual, the condo was left clean. Beautiful location but be aware of owner's hidden agenda.

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

  • 5 of 5

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.
