Private Homes house description

This relaxing Longboat Key 3 bedroom home has everything you could want for your vacation away from home! Villa Lyons is an open airy 3 bedroom /2 bath canal front home. Bring your boat and tie up right on your back yard dock. Walk down the street to the beautiful beach or jump on a boat and head straight out to the Intra-coastal the cut to the gulf is only minutes away.

Relax by the heated pool on the screened in lanai. Enjoy outdoor living at its best as you watch the peaceful water and birds out back on the serene canal while sipping a cool drink and grilling your steaks on the charcoal BBQ. You may even encounter a dolphin or manatee swimming by. Feel free to cast off the dock to see what you will catch or maybe you'd like to rent a boat nearby and check out the sites.

The house is easy one level living. There is a spacious living room with a flat screen tv and generous view of the lanai and pool. Plus the third bedroom is arranged to double as a second family room where kids can play games or adults can setup their computer workstation.
The dining room accommodates large family gatherings, seating up to 10. And for families with dueling computers it makes an excellant work area.

Take a short stroll up the peaceful streets of Sleepy Lagoon to the uncrowded white sandy beach. The sunsets at the beach are absolutely breathtaking! There is even an outdoor shower with hot and cold water, perfect for enjoying the balmy breeze on your skin after a day at the beach!

The master bedroom features a king-size bed, bedroom number two has a queen and in the third bedroom/den area there are two twin beds along with a desk for your computer.

This home has high speed wireless internet access so you will be able to work efficiently or just keep in touch with family while you are away. The computer setup in the den will keep all your paperwork out of site; or you can sit by the pool using the wireless internet access.

Signup for a nature tour and relax in the beauty of North Longboat's coastal flora and fauna.

The house is situated on a quiet dead-end street with minimal traffic. There are no homes across from you - just quiet mangroves along the bay. The grassy backyard is a terrific place for kids to play.

Go to our website to see more pictures of the house. The link can be found further down on the VRBO page, or email us and we will send you photos.

Longboat Key is on the West Coast of Florida, near Sarasota and one hour south of Tampa. Sought-after Longboat Key has some of the most unspoiled beaches in the area. Our access is only three blocks away from our home where you have the feeling that you have your own private beach. Longboat boasts some of the wealthiest residents, and finest restaurants in the Sarasota area.

Perhaps you would rather go for a round of golf or a game of tennis nearby. From this home, it is a matter of minutes to golf courses, tennis courts or shopping! Saint Armand's Circle, a shopping paradise is about 15 minutes away. Longboat Key is a ten-mile long barrier island attached at each end by a bridge to the mainland. If you would like to go to theme parks - we are one hour from Busch Gardens of Tampa Bay or two-and-one-half hours from Disney and Universal Studios. Galleries, museums, and live theatre are within a 25-minute drive.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: We hope you will enjoy Longboat Key as much as we do. This is a special place that we would love to share with you. We do a lot of boating and beaching while we are here. The small islands and sandbars provide a great playground for little and big kids. And the dolphins make you smile. We love to walk down to the beach with a glass of wine and watch the beautiful sunsets. It is the perfect end to another lovely day in paradise. As an added bonus, we have relatives in the area and always enjoy getting together with family for special occasion or an afternoon of sailing.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              We love the short walk to the beach and direct access to the InterCoastal Waterway. We have friends on one of the islands in Sarasota Bay and love to boat over to visit them.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              There are so many things to do here -- there is something for everyone. Terrific golf and tennis. For the water lovers you can power boat, kayak, sail, and jet ski. And then there is the beach -- nature's playground. The beaches are wide, the water is clear, and the surf is calm. If you prefer to play in your own backyard you can swim in our pool or hang out on the dock and watch the fish and birds at play. And when that urge to shop hits, your car will find it's way to the fabulous St Armands Circle. A short drive into Sarasota opens up the arts - you can enjoy theatre, gardens, museums and so much more. The restaurants are great. From the seafood salad at Starfish to the chef's special at Euphemia Haye - you can't go wrong. There is something for everyone on Longboat Key.
