About the owner: Tom and Sue and have married for over 20 years and have two great children. We are fun loving people but also respect others. We are "self made" people who work hard. Tom grew up on Cape Cod so he knows about traffic, beaches, and how to get peace and quiet in a tourist area. Tom is a motorcyclist , and Sue is a great gardener and Advanced Practice Nurse. You will appreciate her interior design and yard work at Long Boat Key.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: We have searched the east and west coast of FL. We found the east coast highly developed, and with generally cooler water. Naples was great, but the traffic and noise was intense, and the atmosphere was formal. Longboat Key has terrific beaches with gentle slopes in the water, great diving, and our location on the west side places us away from the traffic noise that impacts 80% of properties-even properties a block away from our home. Unlike most property on Long Boat Key or the west coast of Florida we have true peace and quiet. Yet an 8 minute drive puts us into good night life, and a 15 minute drive puts us at St Armand's circle with terrific shopping and food. World famous Mote aquarium and Selby gardens are 20 minutes away. Liquor and food are a 3 minute drive as are several great restaurants.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We have great neighbors, enjoy a variety of walking and biking paths, and are very close to a local wildlife preserve. We have tons of great birds and fish in the area, as well as dolphins and manatees. A five minute walk over a beautiful draw bridge puts us on Anna Maria where we can walk for a mile on another sandy beach of bike on hard or soft paths. When we complete our vacation, we are fully rested.
