Best location on Longboat Key

Located in: Longboat Key
Bright, airy and large (990 square feet), 1 bed/1 bath condo in the beautifully landscaped Whitney Beach complex. The condo sleeps five having a king bed in the master, a pull out queen sofa and a twin bed pullout armchair with memory foam mattress. We have the ground floor unit (of two stories) which affords us the luxury of having two patios. The front, court yard style patio is a morning sun trap - perfect for breakfast and coffee. It is here that gas or electric (not charcoal) barbecues are permitted. (Something that's NOT allowed on ANY unit that's NOT ground floor! The rear patio opens out from some huge glass sliders which take up the whole of the end of the condo. Sit at the table here and watch dolphins and manatees swim freely in the intercoastal only 20 feet away. The unit is fully furnished and comes with everything you might need - all you have to do is put food in the fridge!
ALL furniture is new. The unit has just undergone a huge remodel - new kitchen includes new cabinets, granite counter top, stainless steel appliances, , large stainless single bowl sink, faucet, under cabinet lighting, ceiling lighting, remote controlled color mood lighting and garbage disposer. The bathroom has new cabinets, lighting, granite counter tops, sink, faucet, medicine cabinets and shower featuring new tile and glass throughout as well as a huge 10" rain head and hand held wand. Please see the new pictures. In our view, the best just got better. We have supplied two, 6-speed cruiser bikes for exploring the numerous side roads and lanes on the island. Cycling is made more carefree by the inclusion of a designated cycle path which runs alongside the Gulf of Mexico Drive the whole length of the island.
You also have a beach cart equipped with chairs, sun shade and cooler along with two boogie board style surfboards. One of the best things about the unit is that this is where the island narrows. As such, we are about 50 yards from the beach which is just across the G of M drive. Enter via private deeded access where you'll find private chaises lounges, tiki huts, barbecues and tennis courts. Since there is no public parking nearby, the beach tends to be far quieter and feel more exclusive. The beach itself is a fabulous sugary white sand. It's about 35 minutes away from Siesta Key beach - recently voted Americas number one beach! In our opinion, Whitney Beach is every bit as beautiful (if not more so) than its more touristy neighbor.
On the other side of the condo and the same 50 yards or so lies the dock and inter coastal bayou. Here you can kayak amongst the mangroves out to the bay, sit peacefully and marvel at the jumping flying fish or just enjoy the tranquility of the private dock area. We have kayaks we can supply you with or a fraction of the price of what the rental shops charge. Just ask us if you're interested. There are also three swimming pools to cool off in on those days when walking the 50 yards to the beach feels like just too much. You are about a 15 minute drive in normal traffic from St.Armand's Circle and all the shopping, restaurants bars and nightlife it has to offer. Drive on a further 2-3 minutes and you're on the causeway and the jaw dropping views of the gulf and the vibrant city of Sarasota itself!
We loved this island so much that we knew we'd have to somehow do what ever it took to move here. We finally did just that and have been living here permanently since the end of September 2016. If there's a more beautiful place in the United States, we don't know where it is.
