-- THE LOCATION --
The Whitney Beach complex is a beach-to-bay property. This villa is positioned close to the marina and pool, but only a short walk from the private community beach on the Gulf side of the Key. The resort is located on the north side of the island and known for its white-sand beaches and more secluded atmosphere.
When you're not eating at the villa, be sure to enjoy a meal at one of the delicious eateries around Longboat Key. Some top options are the Lazy Lobster, Longbeach Cafe, Euphemia Haye, Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant & Pub, and Maison Blanche for your special occasions.
There are a variety of fun day trips you can make from this cozy beach villa. Drive just under 6 miles to reach the Anna Maria Island, about 25 minutes to either Sarasota or Bradenton, and only a 17-minute drive from the Mote Marine Aquarium. Sarasota has the Ringling Museum and Oslo Opera while Bradenton offers a planetarium and spring baseball!
Some other fun ways to spend your time on the island include playing tennis at the LBK community courts, taking a yoga lesson with Julie at Cedars, or hopping on the trolley to St. Armands Key!
