About the property

Beachfront Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This condo is REALLY right on the beach. The large balcony is "punched out" from the building providing an unobstructed view of both up and down the beach for miles, unlike virtually all other condos on the Key. (No screen, no limited view, no shade from other buildings) This is truly paradise on exclusive Whitney Beach, Longboat Key. Sit at the table on your beautiful balcony and watch the waves and dolphins play as you enjoy breakfast, or relax on easy chairs and chaise lounge while you watch the majestic sunsets. There are also chaise and chairs on beach and an umbrella in the condo to take down to beach. Will book less than one month out of season.


- February 2019 is only available if you book January 2019 in it's entirety.

- March 2019 is only available if you book April 2019 in it's entirety.

About Beth Gotthelf & Steven M

Beth Gotthelf and Steven Miesowicz from Birmingham Michigan

Why Beth Gotthelf & Steven M chose Longboat Key

I spent more time buying shoes then this condo. The minute you walk in, see the beach, dolphins play you think you are in paradise. Have yet to find one on the key I like better

What makes this condo unique

Really right on beach. Dolphins feed and play right in front of us. Breath taking sunsets

Location,location, location!

We have just spent almost a month in this lovely condo. Everything you could possibly need is provided. If you like cooking the kitchen is fully stocked.

The complex was very quiet, there is a lovely pool and a fabulous beach. The balcony gave a lovely view of the passing dolphins and the not to be missed sunsets.

The owners are very helpful and friendly.

We cannot recommend Longboat Key enough, this was our second visit.

Publix supermarket stocks everything and the staff cannot do enough for you, making food shopping a pleasure.

We are saving for our next visit.

Super appartment right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

The photos on the VRBO website were what made us book the condo in the first place. In fact they did not do it justice! The views from the balcony were amazing and we watched some great sunsets.

This is the most well equipped vacation home that we have stayed in in almost 20 years visiting Longboat Key. It was clean and well looked after.

The owner was very helpful and answered all my questions promptly. I would definitely recommend the condo to friends and family and we will return in the future. We had booked almost 4 weeks and wished we had stayed longer.

We have visited most restaurants on Longboat Key and found a new one this year - The Lazy Lobster which was good value with excellent service and food.

We walked the beach in both directions for at least an hour every morning and often saw dolphins.

We enjoyed Halloween at St Armands which is a 15 minute drive away. Good for shopping and restaurants..
