WELCOME TO Longboat Key, Florida! Our beautiful PENTHOUSE UNIT at BEACHPLACE, named "Bird's Eye View", has a breathtaking full view of the Gulf of Mexico from the master bedroom, living room, kitchen and dining room.

The unit was purchased from an original owner and on the market one day...because the view is spectacular.My husband and I started coming to Beachplace as kids...and we have enjoyed many vacations on the famous powder white sand of Longboat Key. This building is our favorite at Beachplace! As you enter the unit, you have gorgeous views of Sarasota Bay and the downtown cityscape, and then just when you think it can't get any better, you open the door to the turquoise blue wa...

A Little Slice of Paradise on Longboat Key

"Our month-long stay at Birds Eye View was nothing short of amazing and exceeded all expectations we had for this adventure as a family. The condo is beautiful, bright, spacious and comfortable. What really makes this condo special though is the incredible views. The straight-on, panoramic views of the Gulf from the huge balcony that spans the entire length of the condo are breathtaking. From sunrise to sunset we lived on this balcony when we weren't at the pool or beach! Even the views of Sarasota Bay from the front of the condo were gorgeous and a few times we took chairs out to that balcony to watch the beautiful sunrise over Sarasota. You have a water view out of every window in this condo! Everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay was included in the condo. It had the nicest supply of kitchen appliances, utensils and dinnerware (glass and plastic) we have ever seen in a rental. There are plenty of towels and bedding. Everything you need for the beach and pool is here: towels, chairs, umbrellas, coolers, boogie boards, pool noodles, and more. However, Beachplace supplies chairs and umbrellas out on the beach so we never even had to carry our own down! The beach here is stunning. We enjoyed countless walks on the beach from sunrise to sunset. The beach is gorgeous and the water was crystal clear and warm for our June stay. The wildlife! We saw manatees swimming right in front of Beachplace, sea turtles coming out of the water to nest at night, tons of dolpins and beautiful sea birds. Our favorites were the baby sandpipers! Sometimes the water was so calm you could just float in the water with a float and sometimes the conditions were perfect for boogie boards. We also really enjoyed the pool area. It's a very large pool area, tons of chairs and tables and umbrellas and something for everyone a swim lane you can sign up for to swim laps, a shallow area, deep area, hot tub and a separate baby pool. The pool water was a perfect, warm and refreshing temperature every day. The Beachplace grounds were very well kept with beautiful plants and palm trees. We felt very safe and secure on the property. The location is fantastic centrally located on the island, a short drive to the Publix for groceries, St. Armand's for dining and shopping and lots of great restaurants within a short drive. The owners are awesome, very friendly and were quick to respond to all of our questions from booking to check out. We can't wait to return!"

"Great views of the beach from master bedroom, balcony, living room, and kitchen. Easy access to other islands. The condo has everything needed to be at the beach: toys, towels, cooler, etc. Heather is great with communicating from beginning to end of stay. We had a great stay overall and would love to go back! "

Beautiful Condo and Great Location!

"We absolutely LOVED staying at this condo. It was beautifully remodeled, had everything we needed, and had a great view. The pool was huge and the beach has perfect sugar sand. The owners were the friendliest we have met on vrbo. They communication everything and even went above and beyond to suggest events that were happening while we were there. We love Longboat Key and have stayed at several locations on the island, this unit is one of the BEST! Definitely top notch. Thanks for having us! :-)"
