                      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. Take a dip in he large heated pool (pool heat separate charge) or sip a cool drink in the screened-in lanai out back as you decide what to do for the day. Explore the beach, perhaps a round of golf, or a game of tennis nearby.

                      From our home, it's a matter of minutes to St. Armand's Circle, a shopping paradise. 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 a half hours from Disney and Universal Studios. Galleries, museums, and live theater are within a 25 minute drive.

                       

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: My parents are true Minnesotan 'Snowbirds' having traveled down to Florida almost every winter to escape the cold. They come down to live in the house January through March.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Sleepy Lagoon:
                      They have rented all over southern Florida for over 20 years but when they found this beautiful house in Longboat Key their renting days were over.
