Private Homes house description

You are truly in the islands when you relax and wind down in this charming bungalow. Shady mango trees cover the generous lot, located on a private, quiet, shell paved street. This wonderful house is located two houses from the bay and two houses and Gulf Drive from the Gulf of Mexico on magnificent Longboat Key. You will find miles of wide, empty beaches abound.

This colorful, well decorated house has the perfect layout for a vacation where privacy is desired. The master bedroom contains a queen bed, bedroom two has a full bed, and bedroom three has three twins. The living area is set up for easy, breezy entertaining. The kitchen area opens to the living and dining areas. A beautiful screened porch, with sliding glass 'pocket' doors join the living and dining room together. Outside you will find two patios and an outdoor shower.

The house is a minute walk from Longboat Key's wonderful and generously proportioned sidewalk/ bike path, which runs the length of Longboat Key and onto adjoining islands. Fabulous restaurants, shops as well as world class boating and fishing are easily accessible from this private getaway. The house has WIFI, cable TV and phone

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We reside in Washington, DC. We hope to eventually make Paradise Cottage in Longboat Key our retirement home. Until then, we would like to share it with you. Our hole family loves it; whether it be with our children, our golf group, our extended family, we are all happy at Paradise Cottage. I wish I could stay forever.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  Paradise Cottage is quiet and peaceful. It has been refurbished but still has it's old island charm; much like the architecture in Key West. You will never want to leave. You will have privacy, yet the neighbors are lovely. Set in one of the slimmest parts of Longboat Key, the beach and bay are at your finger tips. The management company is quick to address any needs and offers many services. You are all set at Paradise Cottage.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  There is nothing you will long for at Paradise Cottage that is not with 10 miles from you. World class medical care, the arts, ballet, opera, Ringling Musuem and world class shopping are just a few things. Two great airports are close. Many and varied grocery stores are close. The house comes complete with cable, phone and WIFI
