Private Homes townhome 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.
