Very nice property - spacious and very clean. In a private upmarket community right across road from beach access. Very convenient to Sarasota main town and also to several supermarkets and malls. Sarasota in a great place for holidays - we spent Christmas & New Year here and thoroughly enjoyed the vacation - would recommend this house and would stay again. Family x 5 from Dublin Ireland

Comfy, clean, and close to the beach
Comfy, clean, and close to the beach
This is a wonderful home, spacious, clean, and boasts the most comfortable cushy couch on Longboat Key! Owner was very easy to work with and always available if needed. We didn't need to rent a car as the trolleys on both Longboat and Anna Maria were easily accessable. House is close to Mote Marine, St. Armand's Circle and Sarasota. Very private and quiet, too.

Wonderful home on LBK
Wonderful home on LBK
Longboat key is quite simply one of the most perfect places I have ever visited. Beautiful homes set back from the Gulf of Mexico drive by manicured lawns, palm and mango trees. Crystal waters lapping along boat lined inlets home to friendly dolphins playing for the patient onlooker. The beach is quiet and peaceful but exceptionally well maintained. Morning or evening walks along the sand are equally popular especially when celebrity spotting is so common. A short drive or bike ride to St. Armands circle opens up a plethora of culinary delights, boutique shopping experiences and the joys of the classic promenade. The name Siesta key belies the active nightlife of this locals favourite, a comfortable drive from LBK. Daiquiris, oyster bars and great live music make this a must for any visitor. Back to LBK... The island feels calm and serene but at the same time grande and prestigious. Prestigious but never pretentious. Golf courses, nature trails, local shops, beauty spots, fishing, sports... For a small island Longboat has plenty to offer. Bogey lane is part of country club shores, one of LBK's most sought after zip codes. The house at 980 was exactly what I hoped for. A classic slice of Floridian Americana in a modern and well appointed home. The rooms are cool and clean, well laid out and exceptionally comfortable. The large family style couch had an almost hypnotic power over me, lulling me gentle sleep during many a film or episode of jersey shore on the large hd television. Rack up the spots and stripes for a game of pool of an evening or, speaking of pools, dive into the temperature controlled swimming pool, anytime. A swim by night is a true highlight, further enhanced by the pool side audio system an full cage. During the day the sun worshiper can bronze on the deck chairs, loungers or lie in the more ish hammock. Pool games make for lasting memories and full photo albums. The nearby publix market services the island residents grocery needs. A bountiful selection of food, household items and entertainment. Of particular note are the Cuban sandwiches prepared fresh in the deli, watch out for passing seagulls with one in hand tho! An evening out at marina jacks offers for of the best cocktails in town and a boat town of some of the most notable residences. Main st features a selection of wondrous gastronomic repast including Patrick's grill, famous for it's burgers. The Saturday morning main at market is a must for locals and tourists alike.

My family enjoyed a wonderful holiday in this beautiful bungalow. It is tastefully decorated, the rooms are bright and airy and immaculately clean just as described. It is equipped to the highest standard and has everything you could ask to make the perfect holiday. The living areas and bedrooms are spacious and extremely comfortable. The owner was very helpful in providing lots of information on local attractions to make our stay the best it could be. We particularly enjoyed the warm pool which even has lights for evening swims! My teenage sons loved the large tv with a super couch to chill out and the pool table also kept them entertained. The area is very safe and peaceful with access to a fabulous beach only a few minutes walk. There are many amenities to enjoy close by including restuarants,ice cream parlours,shops, a cinema, golf courses,parks,sealife centre, if of course you can tear yourself away from the pool and beach! We loved cycling and found this a great way to see dolphins and manatees swimming close by. Driving across the bridges to Longboat Key with stunning views,marks the start of an unforgettable holiday. I would recommend this home to everyone considering a holiday here, you will love it!!

Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: We have been coming to Longboat since 1986 and love it. We have been to many places around the world, most of Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China...even Hawaii doesn't beat the Longboat Key area!
Why the Owner Chose Privateer:
It is very comfortable and family-friendly. When our kids were young we used to rent on Longboat but so many of the properties were owned by elderly people and were full of fragile glassware etc.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The private, heated swimming pool! This is a proper pool, minimum depth four and a half feet – you can swim laps or play swimming pool netball. When we rented homes on LBK most of the pools were tiny, only good for splashing in. And condo pools...usually freezing or packed full of people. It's fantastic to have a private pool. The house is also very close to St Armands Circle – Country Club Shores is a beautiful part of Longboat, all family homes. No condos, hotels or high rise property.
30 foot x 12 foot pool
