An open invitation for viewing an available unit at Windward Bay is an opportunity that prospective buyers of Longboat Key condos for sale shouldn’t miss out. There are close to 60 units in this complex, but sales listings here aren’t very frequent.

Their superb location along the northern stretch of the 12-mile Gulf of Mexico Drive fronting Sarasota Bay is one of the primary reasons why the current owners of units at Windward Bay would want to hang on to their properties.
