Enjoy a terrific holiday at Fairway Bay, one of south Longboat Key's most coveted addresses. It's easy to see why people love to stay at this beautiful, sprawling resort. A friendly guard at the gate will welcome you into a lushly landscaped compound, and will direct you down a winding tree-lined street that leads to the bay. A circular drive will take you to the secure entry of your mid-rise building, or you can head directly into the under-building garage to find your assigned parking near the elevator. Your guests will find ample parking just outside the building, and will be welcomed into a lovely spacious lobby before being whisked up the elevator to your unit on the 4th floor.
Once inside the unit, you'll be instantly captivated by the expansive views over the inlet and Sarasota Bay. Undoubtedly you'll spend much of your time enjoying the pleasures of sitting on the open balcony, watching birds and boats as they make their way in and out of mangrove-lined bayous and across the open waters to Sarasota.
Inside, however, you'll find plenty to enjoy, including a large, well-equipped kitchen that will make meal preparation easy and enjoyable. Grab a quick bite at the breakfast bar, or opt for something a bit more formal at the lovely dining room table, which is part of the open, mirror-lined great room. Comfortable furnishings make it a pleasure to relax here, whether with a good book or watching television.
A split bedroom plan will make it easy to have guests. The master bedroom, which opens onto the balcony, features lovely views and a large en suite bath with walk-in shower. The second bedroom, located off the entry foyer, features twin beds that can be made into a king, along with a flat-panel television mounted on the wall. The second bath can be accessed from this bedroom, or from the entry hall.
Beyond the building you'll find a beautiful heated community pool, complete with hot tub and facilities for grilling and entertaining, and just a bit beyond that, another community pool, along with an exercise facility, tennis courts, and a clubhouse for your enjoyment. Walking paths meander through the complex, inviting you to enjoy your surroundings.
When you're ready for the beach, a stroll of just a few minutes will take you across Gulf of Mexico Drive to the community's private beach facilities, with beach equipment that's available for your use on a first-come/first-served basis. Should you decide to drive or ride your bike to your beach destination, you'll find plenty of parking as well.
