What makes this condo unique?

Located on the Gulf of Mexico, the white sandy beach and pool are steps away from Suite 501. Only 10 steps to the elevators and 10 steps to the pool. The heated pool on the beach is great for sun worshipers and those looking for some natural vitamin D. There is an overhang that provides plenty of shade for any one that does not want too much sun or just relax under the palm trees. On a chilly day, there is a "Sunset Room" where you can relax inside and enjoy the sunset as you enjoy cocktails and conversations with new friends. You can grill on the beach while watching the sunset with plenty of tables for outside dining. After sunset, download an app and star gaze like you never have before when all the stars come out at night. Maybe there will be a turtle nest on the beach or you will see dolphins if you take a break from the book you have finally had a chance to finish. We once saw the space shuttle launch in the clear night sky from all the way over on the east coast. There is so much to do and so much to enjoy. Fall in love with Longboat Key while staying at the Beachcomber! Located on a barrier island, it is definitely is a unique tropical paradise.

About the Owners: Philip and Angela

We are from New England and appreciate getting away to warmer temperatures during the winter and planning a summer escape on the Cultural Coast of Florida or as we like to call our second home Longboat Key. We purchased this condo in 2002 after having a few disappointments while renting at other locations. We have enjoyed many vacations spent in Longboat Key and treasure the memories of our children having fun as they grew up. It is a great place for kids, a great place for families, and a great place for anyone whether you want to just relax or explore. To be honest, most families tell me that the pool is the best part for the kids. Long after their stay, the pool is what they are still talking about. Our family enjoyed all of our sunset swims while watching the sunsets night after night. There is also a grill available to cook on if you just want to stay at home and relax for an evening. Playing catch with a baseball, throwing a Frisbee, a quick game of touch football, flying kites, riding bikes, or just exploring has been great fun over the years. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we do. Thank you.

Why Philip and Angela chose Longboat Key

We have been traveling to Longboat Key for 25 years. We have known many friends that stayed on LBK also. After traveling to many islands, foreign countries, and cruises, we realized what a gem Longboat Key really is. The people that you meet in LBK are truly friendly. With so many things to do on the Key and surrounding areas, you can stay very busy or you can choose to just beach it. There is a sophisticated side to LBK also with the many restaurants and boutiques to visit. Or you can go fishing! Choose you own fun! Plan your adventure! Visit Longboat Key!
