Bay Isles

 

The Community

One of the most desired zip codes in the United States belongs to Longboat Key.  The 10-mile-long key is situated between the sparkling waters of Sarasota Bay and the vast expanse of the Gulf of Mexico, meaning that both sides of the quaint key have full water views.  Located on the southern end of Longboat is the beautiful collection of neighborhoods, Bay Isles.

Bay Isles represents a unique level of taste and luxury on Longboat Key.  Located behind the two 24/7 manned-security gated entrances are residences of all types: condos, single family homes, townhomes, villas, and gorgeous bayfront estates.  Home to the Longboat Key Club Harborside golf course and world class tennis facility, Bay Isles is the perfect place for those who enjoy an active lifestyle.  In addition to the amazing Longboat Key Club facilities, many of these neighborhoods feature nature walks, pools, and their own tennis courts.

Longboat Key Club

Members of the Longboat Key Club get access to both beautiful, rolling, lush golf courses, Gulfside and Harbourside, as well as access to the eight exclusive Club restaurants.  The Longboat Key Club's Tennis Gardens were named the #1 Tennis Resort on Florida's Gulf Coast.  Members also enjoy literally hundreds of member-only events throughout the year, as well as use of the spa, fitness center, concierge services, pool and beach facilities.

The Moorings at Longboat Key Club

With over 290 storm protected deep water slips, access to the AAA Four-Diamond Longboat Key Club Resort comes standard with a Moorings membership.  Concierge service is offered to assist with service and/or maintenance, fuel, and dockside pump-out service.  Access to the Moorings is members-only exclusive; the only docking available to non-members (daytime docking only) is for fellow yacht club reciprocity partners.


Condo Communities in Bay Isles

In the condo communities of Bay Isles, residents become so comfortable with the lifestyle that turnover is  infrequent.  The full array of amenities grant residents access to everything they may need.  Thanks to the communal areas, residents are able to get comfortable and find friends in these buildings very quickly. While many people choose to move within the condo communities, generally they are moving to a different size unit to accommodate a changing lifestyle, as opposed to moving out.  This is a style of living that most choose not to give up.

Single Family Homes & Estates

While I don't live in Bay Isles, I have facilitated transactions in several neighborhoods within this diverse community.  Customers have raved about their ability to easily integrate within the neighborhood, thanks to the miles of walking trails, nature areas, water elements, and parks, all encourage friends and neighbors to enjoy dog walking, biking, and running.  A quiet community, Bay Isles is a haven for wildlife, with sightings of a wide variety of flora and fauna.
