Description from owner

The quiet, pristine, white sand beaches of north Longboat Key await you at Silver Sands, a small, friendly AAA 3-Diamond resort set among tropical gardens on a sugar sand beach with panoramic views of the Gulf's turquoise waters. You'll find the on-site management friendly and accommodating--helping to make your vacation everything you'd hoped for!

Unit 246, a one bedroom/one bath unit with pool/Gulf views, is stylishly furnished and tiled throughout. Redecorated in 2016, the unit features a King bed with BeautyRest mattress, commercial-quality sleep sofa, flat screen TVs, Casablanca ceiling fans and individually-controlled new central air conditioning. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, glassware, cookware and utensils, and features a new dishwasher and a new refrigerator w/ice maker. The spacious living areas and large screened lanai face southwest and look out to the pool and to the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico beyond!

Our first floor location offers instant access to the pool and beach--no stairs to climb! Daily maid and linen service, including fresh beach towels, is included, enhancing your stay and helping to keep the unit in excellent condition. Free WiFi in the unit and on the grounds. Beach umbrellas and beach chaise lounges are also provided without charge. No smoking in the units and no pets. Parking (one car per unit) is included.

Our booking process is simple! Email us your preferred dates and we'll reply by email regarding availability and total cost, and provide additional information about our unit and Silver Sands. To book, email us your contact information which we fax to the Silver Sands front desk. The desk manager will call you to confirm the booking and to obtain a credit card deposit. By booking our unit as an "owner referral," you receive a lower rate and do not pay a booking fee or other add-on charges.

You can walk for miles along the shore, swim in the beautiful beachside heated pool, and relax at the private beach with complimentary chaise lounges, beach towels and umbrellas. Watch for dolphins, hunt for seashells, observe sea turtles and shore birds, and end each day watching the sun's rays highlight the sky as it silently slips below the horizon. Return to the beach at night and wonder at the millions of stars clearly visible in the nighttime sky.

While you're here, take advantage of the wonderful nearby restaurants, parks, marinas and shopping which Longboat Key has to offer. A new Publix supermarket and new CVS drug store are only a few minutes away.

Just a 10-minute drive away, you can enjoy the festive atmosphere of the lively restaurants, boutiques and shops of St. Armands Circle. Then, travel over the John Ringling Bridge into downtown Sarasota. Sarasota is the cultural arts capital of Florida, offering you an incredible selection of music, theater, ballet, opera, arts festivals, art galleries and the renowned John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art.

A Perfect Get-Away

This was our first stay at Silver Sands and we hope to return again and again! We were looking for a relaxing get-away and this property did not disappoint! The beach front, the long walks and the sunsets will be forever etched in our minds. Additionally Mary Jane was exceptionally accommodating by taking time to answer my many questions with complete and detailed replies - all of which helped to make our decision to book our get-away in Longboat Key.

Our Home Away from Home

This condo could well be our home away from home. It was perfect in every way - clean, very clean, in fact, fully equipped, next to the community pool, within literally 20 t 30 steps from the beach front. The cleaning staff kept everything perfect, cleaned the room and replaced towels daily. The place was quiet and relaxing and just in every way as the owner Mary Jane described it. Would be a little small for a family of more than 4 - but for 2 it is perfect. We loved it and very likely will seek to stay there again. We'd only recommend one thing to the maintenance staff - which, btw, was always around and kept the grounds, as well as the pool, in near perfect condition. But, we'd suggest umbrellas at each of the lounge chairs by the pool. These are provided - and abundantly so - by the property for beach side reclining - which we did daily. But, it would be nice to have an umbrella beside the reclining lounge chairs around the pool. The sun does get hot in June in southwest Florida. But, all in all, you will not be disappointed in the property. My wife and I had a wonderful experience. Thanks again Mary Jane, you, too, were pleasant, easy to plan with, and represented your property well.
