Private Homes house description

'Very Welcoming & Peaceful' - several times quoted from our Guests Book. Best value on Longboat Key...

Longboat Key is one of the most beautiful and secure barrier islands off of the west coast of Florida. Our townhouse is within a short walk to a nature lovers paradise - a 27 acre park which is well maintained and beaming with birds and other wildlife of the area with enchanting boardwalks through the mangroves and ample resting areas overlooking breathtaking Sarasota Bay.

Our guests have caught several kinds of game fish in our canal which was dredged only last year. Our smoke-free home is a very special place reserved for only a few. Make your reservation early as some of our guests are already booked for next year...

Absolutely beautiful, completely renovated and updated with all of the amenities that you would only find in units costing much, much more.

Includes:
NEW heated pool with swim jets set in a lush professionally landscaped tropical setting 100 feet from your door. Pool is shared with owner and one additional rental home.
Cable TV and high speed internet

New furniture throughout
Fresh new mattresses and box springs, linens, towels, etc.
Wrap yourself in 440 thread count luxury bed sheets and cozy down comforter
New dishes, pots and pans, etc., etc.
New dishwasher, flat-top range, refrigerator with ice-maker
New microwave, toaster oven
New TV's in Living Room and Master Bedroom.
New VCR and DVD player in Living Room and Master Bedroom
Cable for TV's and two phones.
New coffee maker, food mixer, appliances, etc.
New Washer and Dryer

NOT BIG ENOUGH? No problem, the unit next door may also be available. It does not come with pool privileges.

Owner lives across the street.

Plus,
Enjoy a 5 minute walk to your sun-drenched beach and the warm waters
of the Gulf of Mexico through your private access or a 2 minute walk
to a breath taking view of Sarasota Bay.
5 minute walk to a Nature Lover's paradise - 27 acres with trails
through the mangroves on boardwalks with ample sitting benchs
overlooking Sarasota Bay.
A 10 minute walk to 5 restaurants featuring continental cuisine, local seafood and absolutely outrageous desert rooms.
