Property description

Lovely completely new beach cottage beautifully decorated with lush landscaping and outdoor lanai for dining and relaxing. Quiet upscale residential neighborhood. Two minute walk to a quiet sandy beach. Excellent fishing off beach and nearby bay and wonderful underwater visibility for diving and snorkeling-- the water looks like the Caribbean. Five minute walk to Cocina Beach on Anna Maria Island. This is the only US beach to be rated in the top 20 beaches world wide. This is our retirement home and we emphasize peace and quiet.

This is our retirement home. We ave a large and extended family and use this calendar for them, but also other guests.

Just a drive to St. Armand's circle, the Mote Aquarium and Sarasota. We are located on the northwest corner of Longboat Key, very near the drawbridge connecting to Anna Maria Island. Excellent paved walking and biking paths everywhere, as well as miles of beach to walk on. Local property manager at your service. Large garage great for secure storage.

Our cottage is located in a very quiet neighborhood well off any major roads. Most homes and condos in LBK are either near a major road or are full of party goers. Our cottage is very quiet and private, yet minutes from good night life.



Keywords: Charming, quiet, new beach cottage with garage. 3 minute walk to white clean sandy ocean beach on the Island of Long Boat Key.
Seasonal rental preferred.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

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 remote control plane and helicopter pilot. 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 bird preserve. This location is perhaps the most "walkable" spot in the greater Sarasota and island area. 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.
