The Beachcomber Condos for Sale – Longboat Key, Florida 34228

The Beachcomber

Talk about the pacesetters that helped transform Longboat Key condos for sale into some of Florida’s prime choices, and chances are that The Beachcomber will be among those game-changers prominently cited. The construction of this condominium, after all, tracked close on the heels of the groundbreaking initiatives of Arvida Corp. in 1959 during which this developer purchased waterfront properties on Longboat’s southern end and on nearby keys for $13.5 million.

This move, which came less than five years after Longboat was incorporated as a town in 1955, led to the various projects which eventually installed the island among the prime U.S. destinations for seasonal homes and vacation rental condos. In the ensuing decades of the 1960s and 1970s, Arvida’s report card showed completion of what is now The Resort at Longboat Keywith golf links, luxury condos and posh amenities.

The Beachcomber

The Beachcomber condos for sale first came into market precisely in synch with these initial salvos of Longboat Key’s property developments. Located at Gulf of Mexico Drive just northwest of the expansive golf links of The Resort at Longboat Key, this condominium had its first building, a six-story edifice, constructed in 1970. Adjacent north of this mid-rise, another structure with just two floors and four units was built in 1973 as Beachcomber II.

Longboat Key condos for sale in this complex typically would entail choices in one or two-bedroom units within floor plans measuring 675 and 1,380 square feet, respectively. The smaller options, which are housed in The Beachcomber’s six-story building, are prized finds at starting prices upwards of the mid-$200s. At Beachcomber II which was developed with two-bedroom condos, the asking prices can be quoted at close to the $600s.

Sales listings in this condominium complex though are rare, as many owners of units at The Beachcomber find it rewarding to keep their property as vacation rentals. An owner can even maintain a unit here both as a seasonal home and a property for rent occasionally since this condominium allows flexible weekly or monthly rentals.

Moreover, this property already has established a solid reputation in the travel and tourism trade, thanks to the Beachcomber’s efficient onsite management and professional marketing for over many years. It’s basic, of course, that his condominium makes for an easy sell whether to tourists or prospective buyers of Longboat Key condos for sale.

The condos of the Beachcomber complex flaunt well-designed interiors, such as floor-to-ceiling doors that bring in fabulous views of the property’s storied gulf front setting. This property likewise has its own swimming pool and luxuriates amid tropical Florida landscaping that is trademark to the prime properties of Longboat Key.

Besides the nearby uncrowded beach, the island also provides a wide variety of attractions conveniently accessible to Beachcomber residents and guests. The Quick Point Nature Preserve and Overlook Park, two of Longboat Key’s hidden gems, are just a short drive south of the condominium. Even more convenient, condo residents can just walk to Shoppes of Bay Isles, one of the local commercial hubs which like the Beachcomber has also been meticulously developed in tune with the growth of the town.
