Don't let the "Vintage" tag fool you people. While this condo unit hails back to the condos of the past it is extremely well kept and they strive to meet every need you should have!
Literally steps to the ocean from your door whether you are upstairs or down, you will not be disappointed. There are patio tables with real palm leaf umbrellas. Beach chairs and toys in your unit's (231-233) closet. A full selection of wonderful books right in the unit.
The unit we stayed in has been converted from two into one. This made for a wonderful situation for my family. It gave my husband and I the much needed breaks from the kids and allowed the boys their own space to play games, sleep, etc. There were double doors dividing the unit which included two double beds and one king. Very nice space. Lots of closet room. The bathrooms are small, but trust me you don't need a big one when there are two! You have a shower and bath combo on each side. The furniture in the living area is extremely comfortable and not outdated. The facility itself is very well kept as well as the pool. Pleasing, calming colors just scream BEACH! I can't say enough good things about this place.
In a perfect location, very little traffic. A swim shop is right across the street. A corner store is literally a couple blocks away. Publix and CVS is a mile down the street. You don't need to leave the island for anything! Longboat Key is quite possibly the best place on earth!
Quite the value for what you get. It is a condo but you get the service of a hotel. Daily maid service (optional). Outdoor cleaning crew always has the place looking spectacular! FIVE STARS ALL THE WAY AROUND!
