A mid-rise building with only six floors and 57 total units, you will find the amenities to be top-notch and the location to be spectacular. The units are two-bedroom two-bath and will be in the 1500-1600 square foot range.
The amenities on-site include private beach access to some of the best white sand beaches Longboat Key is known for. Covered parking is a big plus. There is also a fitness center, community center, two har-tru tennis courts, and wonderful heated pool and concierge service is available to help meet your day to day needs.
Aquarius is located about two miles north of St. Armand’s Circle where you can enjoy formal or casual dining amongst and up-scale, tropical setting. St. Armand’s also has a unique mix of confectionery shops along with upscale boutiques where you might just find that unusual gift or memento. Just north is the Bay Isles center where shopping and services for day-to-day living are found including a full service Publix food store that has an emphasis on unique and ethnic foods. Banking and other services are also available. There is no need to come off the island unless of course, you have tickets to a show at the Van Wezel or have a desire to enjoy one of the many artistic or cultural interests Sarasota is known for.
Built in 1975, the building has had continuous maintenance, updates, and upgrade over the years. Most recently, new balcony railings have been installed. The windows and sliding doors have also been replaced and meet the latest codes. These sorts of upgrades keep the building feeling new and fresh while also helping to reduce insurance costs. Elevator service is also available so a quick trip to the penthouses or one of the upper floors is a breeze.
Rentals are permitted three times a year and must be for a minimum period of three months. Quite often, the owners that rent their units out will find the same tenants come back the same time year after year.
