This video link below shows my day as a Sarasota realtor on a winter's day on the Gulf of Mexico at the Resort at Longboat Key Club on Longboat Key, Florida

Not only do we have fabulous weather all year round here in the Sarasota/Longboat Key area, where you can enjoy all the outdoor activities you enjoy and escape the winter’s cold and snow, we have many ways to partake in these activities.  One is the Longboat Key Club.  You can be a member at this club whether you own real estate on Longboat or not.  You can also be a guest at the Resort on Longboat Key.  I am a tennis member of the club and find the members extremely friendly, and my husband and I enjoy partaking in the varied social events.

Secluded on a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico, The Resort at Longboat Key Club is a AAA Four-Diamond Sarasota resort that encompasses 410 acres of lush lawns and pristine beachfront with authentic Old Florida boardwalks.   The environmentally-friendly resort is an official Florida "Green Lodging" and just a short drive from the upscale shopping, museums and theaters in downtown Sarasota. Along with breathtaking ocean views, guests enjoy oversized accommodations with private balconies, eight diverse restaurants and lounges, and year-round activities from 45 holes of premier golf to full-service beachfront offering a full spectrum of water sports and relaxation.

The award-winning Tennis Gardens boasts 20 Har-Tru courts along with private instruction and summer tennis camps. Bring balance to your mind, body and spirit with holistic treatments at The Spa or soak up the sun from the tropical swimming pool and white-sand beach with a cocktail in your hand. You will also discover a full calendar of wellness events and family-friendly activities from beach yoga and kayaking to Camp Loggerhead, the fun-filled children's club for guests ages five to 12.  The Moorings, the largest marina on Florida's west coast offers docks for large yachts. 

Nearby are many upscale Longboat Key neighborhoods, where you can purchase a condo or home in a wide price point.  There are real estate offerings from gated developments to waterfront condos or houses  to high rise condominiums to maintenance-free villas.  As a local realtor, I can show you any of this real estate for sale.  You will absolutely love this area!
