Lynn B, Resident
2013-06-13
 
Pros:

Fabulous

Cons:

Summary:

Hi Mark, Thanks for the note. Buying a condo on LBK has been one of the best moves of my life. The condo at Longboat Harbour Towers has been perfect. I go over there whenever possible. I have been fortunate to have rented it for 3 months during the season for the past 4 years. My rental income pays my real estate taxes & almost 95% of my monthly fees. Lynn B


 
Jane, Resident
2013-05-11
 
Pros:

Longboat Key is gorgeous and very pristine. We decided to buy here for that reason. Siesta Key was a bit too overgrown and dense.

Cons:

It takes a little while to get into Sarasota during season. The traffic can be heavy.

Summary:

We bought here in 2012 and still love it.


 
Sandy J, Resident
2013-02-08
 
Pros:

Longboat Key is absolutely gorgeous. It belongs in a post card. The beaches are very private and quiet. Very peaceful. Great for escaping.

Cons:

Very few new condo buildings

Summary:

We own a winter condo on the island and love it!


 
Jamie Strong, Visitor
2012-10-07
 
Pros:

The beaches are gorgeous. The island is pristine, well maintained and very pretty. Relaxing!

Cons:

It is a great spot to unwind and relax. However, it can be very boring. Not much going on. You have to drive into Sarasota (not that far) for shopping, restaurant and other fun.

Summary:

Love visiting Longboat Key. However, I don't think I would live there. Too slow for me. If I buy it will be closer to the action of Sarasota.


 
Elliot Weinstein, Resident
2012-03-24
 
Pros:

Longboat Key is very pristine and the beaches are very relaxing with classy people.

Cons:

Still looking ;-)

Summary:

Considered all of the keys in Sarasota. Siesta Key was too busy and not classy enough....couldn't find the right condo on Lido Key....Longboat Key is elegant and relaxing.... The best!

About Longboat Key, Florida

The northern half of Longboat Key is located in Manatee County while the southern half is part of Sarasota County. Access to the island is available via Bradenton from the north bridge or Sarasota from the south bridge. The entire island is located within the boundaries of the Town of Longboat Key, a Florida municipality incorporated in 1955.longboat_key_253

Longboat Key attracts vacationers from all over the world, and is popular among Europeans in both winter and summer months. Vacationers mostly visit Longboat Key to frolic on the beach and swim in the clear blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Other activities include boating, fishing, parasailing, jet skiing, playing tennis, shopping, and dining in either fine or casual restaurants on St. Armands Circle. In addition, Longboat Key is the only barrier island off the coast of Sarasota that features a golf course. Longboat Key is also conveniently located to Sarasota's culture district which is home to live theater, opera, symphony, ballet, movies, and art museums. All of the amenities of downtown Sarasota are within a short drive from the south end of Longboat Key.

North Longboat Key

To explore Longboat Key, you travel back in time when starting your road trip at the very North end. Here the quaint and historic Longbeach Village area dates back to 1912 when Longboat Key landowner Rufus Jordan constructed many of the early residences. Explore today's beautiful Key residences at real estate open houses and home tours, being sure to check out the current exhibition at the LBK Center for the Arts while in the area. You've no doubt worked up a thirst by now, so stop in at the MarVista Restaurant or Moore's Stone Crab for a cool libation along with your lunch. At both these legendary eateries you are looking out over the same waterfront view as the early Key settlers.

Your road trip continues as you drive south down the key past georgeous beach-front single-family homes and condos to experience a totally different kind of island vibe at Jamrocks Jamaican Grill, a Caribbean restaurant & bar located along Gulf of Mexico Drive. Grab a Red Stripe and beef patty and sit out back on the water, watching the kayaks float by. Yeah mon, it's a must-do. Then pop into the LBK Historical Museum to get a final taste of Old Florida life with the Calusa Indians, well before all today's residences were built. This summer, take the time to explore North Longboat Key and discover the best of both worlds.

South Longboat Key

Come and "live la Vida Loca" on Longboat Key, Florida! While the phrase does mean "livin' the crazy life," it can also mean letting yourself go and livin' the good life. A crazy good life can be found year-round on LBK. The town is accessed on the south end by New Pass Bridge, a drawbridge that connects LBK to Lido Key and St Armand's Circle.

Starting from the south end, Gulf of Mexico Drive is the "main drag" that runs the entire 11 mile length of this picturesque barrier island. Cruise past landmarks such as Mote Marine Laboratory, Ken Thompson Park, the New Pass Pier, golf courses, condominiums, the historic Sarasota Sailing Squadron, numerous marinas and beautiful island neighborhoods and resorts.

lbkbayisles_640Some noteworthy destinations are nestled just north of St. Armand's Circle on Ken Thompson Parkway. Mote Marine Laboratory has been a leader in marine research since it was founded in 1955. All you budding marine scientists need to reserve your seat on a Sarasota Bay Explorers boat, the tour company that operates out of Mote Aquarium. Offering a variety of eco-boat tours, yours can even include a marine biologist to help identify the sea life that is pulled from the bay in your trawl net; puffer fish? stone crab? sea horse? Crazy! Livin' la vida loca, remember?

After all that seafood, check out the view from the New Pass Grill and Bait Shop. Since 1929, they figure they've sold about one million delicious "New Pass Burgers." Crazy! Help them increase that number.

Any sailors here? The casual Sarasota Sailing Squadron, also on Ken Thompson Parkway, was founded as a nonprofit organization by Sarasota residents. The Squadron grew out of the youth sailing program of the Sarasota Yacht Club in the late 1930s. The Squadron plays host to numerous national and international sailing competitions - check it out. What a view!
