Turtle Crawl Inn Condos for Sale – Longboat Key, Florida 34228

Turtle Crawl Inn

Turtle Crawl Inn is a gulf-front condominium developed in 1973 with units that could very well serve a dual purpose, an immediate plus point for enterprising buyers of Longboat Key condos for sale. A unit in this property at 4235 Gulf of Mexico Drive offers the delights of having a seasonal vacation home and a rental resort unit, brimming as it is with the charms for such a twofold function.

To cite the winsome features of this condominium, it would be amiss not to cite its name, an obvious take from the protected turtles nesting yearly in the town’s 12-mile long beach. But certainly, this condo complex has so much more to offer besides responsibly sharing its neighborhood with these marine creatures breeding in many parts of Florida’s Gulf Coast from May to November.

Three condo types

Turtle Crawl Inn

For one, Turtle Crawl Inn residences come in three varying residential styles, a relatively rare feature even among larger developments. The choices of Longboat Key condos for sale could be expected to be more plentiful or frequent at this property’s five-story midrise housing a total of 20 units.

Other Turtle Crawl Inn condos for sale may include options at the two-story townhouses and villas in the complex. The typical sales-listed condos in the entire property have one bedroom within floor plans of between 650 and 780 square feet, offered in the market at around the $300s.

Turtle Crawl Inn condos for sale at the property’s midrise provide superb gulf views as all the units in this building have been laid out facing the beach. Many of these condos have also recently been upgraded or remodeled. Any available villa or townhouse in the complex is as desirable as these units overlook the lush tropical gardens of the complex and have walk-down access via pavered pathways to the Turtle Crawl Inn’s swimming pool as well as to the Longboat Key Beach.

Topnotch resort features

Turtle Crawl Inn

In addition to the heated pool, the amenities within the complex include a shuffle board court a putting green, a picnic area with gas barbecue grills, cabanas and beach chairs. Truly designed as a resort condo community, Turtle Crawl Inn provides all the requirements that vacationers would need, such as an onsite manager and laundry facilities.

An active rental program is in place at Turtle Crawl Inn, an opportunity that a property investor smart would be smart to consider. This condominium has adopted a very liberal policy on rentals, allowing unit owners to rent out their condos whether on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

Local magnets to renters

The mid-island location of this property works quite well in attracting renters. Turtle Crawl Inn is convenient to all the life and leisure venues of Longboat Key, besides the island’s beach. Walking a short distance towards south of the condominium leads to the Bayfront Park Recreation Center which has several facilities including tennis courts and ball fields.

With a short drive farther southward, other local lifestyle activities can be as easily accessed at the St. Armands Circle, host to classy shops and restaurants. Seeking for even more in terms of dining, shopping, and entertainment won’t be much of a bother. Just past the St Armands commercial hub towards east is the John Ringling Causeway Bridge leading to the myriads of delights at the Sarasota downtown district.
