This is a charming 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home. The master bedroom looks out onto the beautifully landscaped back yard. There is a king size bed and a fold out couch in the master bedroom. The second guest room has a king size bed and also looks out onto the backyard and the beautiful swimming pool and canal. The third guestroom has two twin size beds. The master bath has double sinks and a large walk in shower with double shower heads. The second bathroom has a shower and bath. There is a beautiful heated swimming pool with sunning deck in the backyard. There also is a six person spa. The home is located on a beautiful canal with no neighbors across the canal so it is very private. The home is tiled throughout with flat screen TVs in the two larger bedrooms and living area. There is cable and wireless internet. There is a large open kitchen that looks out onto the dining and living areas. There is air conditioning, heat and a fire place. Finally, there is a new washer and dryer in the home as well. This is Florida living at its best.

              There is a wonderful aquarium called Mote Marine. Fascinating - sharks, manatees, all types of fish, sealife hospital, huge sea turtles, EVERYTHING about the ocean! The beaches on Longboat Key are beautiful and not crowded so you have a peaceful time should you want it. It is also filled with fun possibilities - amazing early-morning shelling, kite flying, sand castle-building, and the water is warm for swimming. Our home is a 5 minute walk to the beach so you can walk back and forth in no time. Also, only 20 minutes away is great shopping and browsing at St. Armand's circle. They have all kinds of shops and wonderful restaurants. On the mainland in Bradenton, there is big miniature golf course. And only an hour or so away are the Ellenton Premium Outlet stores! Shop till you drop!

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About: We are a family with two young daughters! We live in New England, but I grew up in Florida and we have family who live year-round in Longboat Key. We always wanted a comfortable and fun home to escape to during the cold winter months and we have made so many wonderful family memories at this home! We think you will, too!

              Why Private Homes:
              Longboat Key is close to our family's heart because we have family who live year-round on the island. It is a peaceful island with lots to do from kayaking to biking to swimming to shelling! There are not a lot of tourist shops on the island, but there are islands close by that you can drive to should you want to explore those things. In the end, we think our cozy beach cottage is the perfect retreat no matter what you are looking for during your stay.
