This is the gem you have been waiting for. Unique opportunity to own this piece of paradise you will want to hang onto like these owners have for 27 years. Impeccably maintained Walkout Ground Floor beachfront condo on the Gulf of Mexico in Covert II on Longboat Key, Florida. Turnkey 1 bedroom / 1 bath home with exquisite unobstructed views of the gulf and the stunning sunsets that Longboat Key is known for from one end of the unit to the other. Enjoy the ground floor intimacy with no steps from private parking space to condo and from lanai to wide, private, white sand beach where chaise lounges are provided. A private heated pool in the front of the building – perfect should it be a windy beach day – with chaise lounges, patio tables and tropical landscaping just steps from the front door. Enjoy access to a quaint, private fishing dock just across the street on Sarasota Bay to watch the sunrise or put in your kayak or paddle board to explore.

You can have it all. Situated on the northern part of the island, you will be far enough from the action to relax but close enough to find it. An eight foot wide paved walkway the length of this 11 mile island makes walking and biking safe and accessible.

A large grocery store is within an easy drive or venture off the island 15 minutes south to St Armand's Circle of world class restaurants, shops, and galleries or into Sarasota to the Ringling Mansion and Museum, Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, Van Wezel Performing Arts Center – to name a few.
