If fishing is your passion there are fishing piers close by or you can rent a boat just a few miles away. Explore the shops at St. Armand's Circle or downtown Sarasota, just a 10 minute drive from your door. Just steps away from a canal leading to the bay.

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: Family of 4, two very little boys with big personalities and endless energy. They love everything about visiting the beach house in Florida.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  We use this property for our own family vacations and have been coming to Longboat Key since we were kids and are now happy to bring our own kids and share this special house with visitors.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Daily walks in the park and sunsets at the beach. Chasing geckos, bird watching, visiting the Mote Aquarium, and enjoying fresh seafood and O.J.!
