Property description

Dream Island Getaway is located on a charming quiet cul-de-sac on the northern end of Longboat Key.

Its setting is lush and tropical and its recent landscaping is varied and beautiful.

Living/dining area, master and guest bedrooms all open onto the lanai/pool area and the house is situated on a canal. A 42' mounted HD flat screen is in the living area and the 2 bedrooms both have mounted flat screen TV's. Linens and towels are provided. A new gas grill is located outside the pool area and is hooked up to a gas line--so no propane tanks are needed. A canal-side patio with a chiminea is also a great place to relax ; frequently in the winter months, manatees and dolphins can be seen swimming by.

If you love boating and fishing, rent a boat at Cannon's Marina (at the top of our street) and investigate the Gulf or Sarasota Bay. Access to the white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico is only a short walk away. Busch Gardens and Disney are also great day-trip adventures. CA d'Zan ( John and Mabel Ringling's mansion), Ringling Museum of Art, 2 circus museums and Marie Selby Botanical Gardens are great to visit. The Asolo, Sarasota's Repertory Theatre, the Van Wezel Center for Performing Arts, the Opera House and Sarasota Orchestra all contribute to the area's unique cultural richness.

Rent bikes at BackYard Bike Shop (nearby) and take a 5 minute bike ride to the beach (Gulfside Dr beach access)

For all baseball fans -- enjoy spring training games all March for the following nearby teams:

Baltimore Orioles Sarasota
Pittsburgh Pirates Bradenton
Boston Red Sox Ft.Meyers
Philadelphia Phillies Clearwater
NY Yankees Tampa
Toronto Blue Jays Dunedin


Featured in the recent update include new kitchen cabinets and appliances and new vanities in the master bedroom & guest bathroom.

Enjoy this secluded quiet spot and its wonderful flora & fauna. Minimum stay is one week and is available year round.
