Access to the Gulf of Mexico is just a step behind this and offers a simply stunning beach, complete with property owned chaise lounge chairs and complimentary nightly sunsets. Take advantage of the large heated pool, lit tennis court and ample open guest parking. Center shops are also nearby and offer many of the services you need from restaurants to shops. Durante Park, on 32 acres alongside Sarasota Bay, offers somewhat of a coastal forest that's complete with abundant wildlife and located within minutes of your condo. Beautiful Bayfront Park is also great for public basketball, tennis, kayak or canoe launching and convenient dog park! At Longboat Cove you'll enjoy the very well maintained grounds. Not to mention, with both the touch of a switch to close the electric hurricane shutters and a very hands and responsive onsite staff, rest assured your property will lie in great hands when you leave your dream condo behind.
