THIS PROPERTY IS NOW UNFORTUNATELY IN FORECLOSURE! THERE IS A TRULY FABULOUS OPPORTUNITY HERE - PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR DETAILS IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE IN OWNING THIS HOME. SINCERELY, JOHN LANCE (Owner)
Conrad Beach is a beachside community consisting of just 21 home-sites located between historic Longbeach Village and a Gulfside sugar-sand beach, known for its Dolphin sightings, turtle-watches and glorious sunsets! A
120 acre coastal nature preserve is just north of the property and outstanding marina facilities are to the south.
Many fine restaurants are within easy reach -two within walking distance - as is a local supermarket and a variety of small shops. Within a few minutes' drive are golfing, tennis and many other sporting facilities, wildlife parks and also Sarasota's popular St. Armand's Circle.
The property comprises well over 5,000 square feet of under-roof space, accommodates up to 9 persons and is on three levels.
A private driveway leads to the front of the house, secured with a monitored alarm system, and from the pleasant porch at the ground floor entrance level there is a fine wooden staircase leading up to the main living area.
On the second floor, to the right, is the fully-carpeted lounge with two comfortable leather sofas, a fireplace and occasional tables. For your enjoyment there is cable TV, a DVD and a CD player/music system that supplies the entire property. Sliding glass doors open up to the South-facing balcony on which there are two rocking chairs.
On the other side off the top of the staircase is the formal dining room with a table and chairs for six. Glass sliding doors open onto the South-facing balcony, again with two rocking chairs. Adjacent is a delightful wet-bar.
On this side is also a sleeper-sofa which converts into a double bed.
Off a hallway is the study, (with high-speed internet access), a wireless router for use with your own laptop, a telephone and a fax machine,copier and printer.
The hallway leads on to the luxury, designer kitchen with built-in top-quality stainless steel appliances (including a refrigerator, freezer, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, coffee percolator etc) and island stove, granite counter-
tops and an eat-in dining area with window seating and an outdoor view of the palm-tree filled courtyard below. The kitchen also has its own cable-TV.
Next is the laundry room with full-size washer, dryer, iron & ironing board.
Next to the laundry room is a half-bathroom with pedestal sink and wc.
Further on is the very spacious master bedroom with its beautiful four-poster king-size bed, a chaise-longue, oak furnishings, flat-screen cable TV, a DVD, telephone and views on one side overlooking the courtyard, and to the other the community pool and tropical gardens, views of which can also be enjoyed from the adjoining balcony. The gorgeous master bathroom has a Jacuzzi bath-tub, a separate and spacious granite shower, his
and her vanity units, separate WC with bidet, full-length mirrors, a hair-dryer and has windows overlooking the pool. There is a large two-sectioned walk-in designer closet offering plenty of hanging space.
The staircase from the hallway leads up to two private guest suites, each with a full bathroom, custom-made double bed (one has an additional single bed), flat-screen TV & DVD, quality window treatments and beautiful views of the community pool or tropical landscaping.
A further staircase leads up to the spacious roof terrace with magnificent panoramic Gulf and Bay views - a most wonderful place to view the magnificent Gulf sunsets.
Below and between the main living areas of the house is a secluded, tropical courtyard with an outside dining table and seating for 6-8 persons. There are also two sun-loungers and adjacent is the property's private covered games area in which is a billiard/snooker table and a table-tennis table. It is then just a few paces to the (almost private!) pool, use of which is available to the residents of Conrad Beach and their guests.
Throughout the house are luxury linens, custom-made down duvet covers, modern art, highest quality furnishings, digital cable-TV in every room and the in-house sound system.
The flooring is a mixture of hardwood, artistic tiling or quality carpeting. The home has plenty of parking, storage space and garaging.
All linen and towels - even beach towels - are provided, as is of course sufficient cutlery, dishes, glasses, pots & pans and kitchen utensils.
Sorry, no pets and no smoking inside the house but the porch, numerous balconies and the roof terrace allow frequent opportunities for smokers to indulge without affecting others.

Reviews for this vacation home rental in Longboat Key, Florida
We had a fabulous time
July 30, 2013
This is the second year we have vacationed at this property. My family loves it. A pool is steps out of the door and it is a very short walk to the greatest white sand beach and ocean breezes. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking. Grocery shopping is available on the key or mainland. Restaurants are excellent up and down the key. The design of the home allows for family togetherness as well as enough privacy to read and relax alone. I hope the house is available next year for my family's vacation.

La casa es muy cómoda. Una cama King y dos Queen en las tres habitaciones, más una cama Twin para armar. Cada habitación con baño en suite y un toilete. Zona muy tranquila y agradable a dos minutos de la playa caminando. Estuvimos con tres varones jóvenes y dos ninñas. 7 en total y nos acomodamos bien. Tiene equipo de playa a disposición del huésped, mesa de billar, ping-pong y barbacoa. Fuimos muy bien atendidos y recibidos por Kim, la manager de la propiedad. Excelente semana.

Our family had a great time. The house was beautiful and had everything you would need. A quick walk to the beach just a block but can view the ocean from deck on top of the house. Would recommend to anyone.
