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.

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.

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.

  • 5 of 5

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
