Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Longboat Key - Beach Castle Resort #8

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Compliments of RVA, Beach Castle Resort expands from the bayside of Longboat Key to the Gulf – providing a place to launch your kayak and cast a line, a chance to spot exotic birds that stop here for our mild temperatures and to view a picture-perfect sunset over the Gulf of Mexico -- all courtesy of Mother Nature.

The grounds here are impeccable – from the well-manicured vegetation to the vast palm trees that dot this serene Longboat Key location. The buildings at Beach Castle are the color of sunshine and are accented by Bahama shutters and railings that resemble palm trees. Each unit is individually owned, which means no unit is alike and provides a unique vacation experience to our guests. However, all units provide a full kitchen, living room and private lanais – never compromising the comforts of home.

This secluded hideaway exudes a classic charm that, as vacationers, we yearn for. A place to get away from it all, relish in the Florida sunshine and reconnect with family and friends; all this while enjoying white-sand beaches, privacy and most importantly, vacation memories that last a lifetime.

Limited Membership Privileges: Guests of Beach Castle Resort #8 will have the option of temporary membership privileges at Cedars Tennis Resort located at 645 Cedars Court on Longboat Key. The limited temporary membership allows the guest access to 10 fully-lit Har-Tru tennis courts (after 1 p.m. daily and subject to availability), community bicycles, fishing pier and Jr. Olympic heated swimming pool. The guest will also have access to the Cedars Cafe and Tiki Bar and fitness center.

Accommodations: Beach Castle Resort is a quiet, 21-unit condominium resort midway on the exclusive island of Longboat Key with a variety of views including Gulf front, Bay front, pool and garden views.

Unit #8 Features: Two-bedroom, two-bathroom second-floor unit located on the Gulf side. Features include ocean views, flat screen TV's', leather furniture, wireless Internet and tile floors throughout.

View: Gulf Front Views

Bedding: 1 King, 2 Full Beds

Please Note: Beach Castle is a self service resort; we do not provide daily housekeeping services. For your convenience, an amenity “Starter Kit” is provided to assist you upon your arrival. Any essentials required after the initial provided, such as toilet paper, dish soap, etc. is the responsibility of the guest.

Dining: Although Beach Castle Resort does not feature an on-site restaurant, it is centrally located to nearby hotspots – some within walking distance! Our recommendation is The Blue Dolphin Café , a local favorite that features the flavors if the island and is just a short stroll from your front door. Longboat Key restaurants include Harry’s Continental Kitchens, Euphemia Haye Restaurant and The Haye Loft Lounge & Dessert Room, The Dry Dock Waterfront Grill, Mattison’s Steakhouse, and MarVista Backside Restaurant and Pub.

Attractions: Longboat Key is rich in high-end boutiques and five-star restaurants making it an ideal destination for vacationers who like their beach getaway on the swankier side. As a barrier island to the town known as the area's "cultural capital", an assortment of entertainment options can be found at nearby Sarasota where attractions and activities abound for all age groups.

The island of Longboat Key is home to several premier, private golf courses, however nearby Sarasota and Bradenton areas offer top-rated golf courses a short drive off the island for golfers of every handicap.

The Centre Shops is located just north of Beach Castle Resort and includes shopping options of art galleries, restaurants, a dry cleaner, pharmacy and a UPS store – all the ingredients for the perfect spot to pick-up all your necessary beach essentials and remembrances. If you’re looking for higher-end shopping, traveling to Lido Key’s St. Armand’s Circle is well worth the trip. Rumor has it that circus magnate John Ringling won Lido Key in a poker game that turned the sister island of Longboat Key into a world-famous attraction.

Nice Condo Right on Private Beach

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice and clean, plenty of room for multiple people, had adequate amenities to cook for yourself if you'd like. Right on the beach and access to the bay as well; no boat ramp, but you could probably tie your boat to the dock they have. The staff of the management company were very helpful and friendly and gave us privacy. The condo is not far from Anna Maria island, but it is definitely not within walking distance. However, we did utilize the membership pass that came with the condo to rent some bicycles and biked up to Anna Maria island and had lunch at a restaurant on the beach; I believe round trip was around 15 miles from the bike rental place to the restaurant and back. Beautiful sunsets everyday! We would definitely stay again.
