2300 sq ft newly renovated 4 bed/3 bath waterfront home
After visiting Longboat Key for the past eight years, my husband and I were lucky enough to find this wonderful property. We took over a year and a half to strip it down to the studs and replace nearly everything! We now enjoy this brand new home complete with all the beautiful finishes and cherished family furnishings that we love. We hope you will enjoy this peaceful retreat as much as we do.
Jennifer purchased this House in 2016
Why Jennifer chose Longboat Key
Unique to the island, this house sits at the mouth of the canal. Your view is down the canal which is protected mangroves on one side and boat docks on the other. With few houses on the street, it is a serene and quiet street. Quick access to both the bay and the beach!
What makes this House unique
The mangroves create a magical feel to this property. Enjoy the 100+ year old cedar trees on and surrounding the property as well as the new "native" landscaping which includes only those plants and trees found naturally on Longboat Key. Soft sand and meandering paths underfoot creates the ideal island retreat.

This property had all the things we were looking for in a vacation rental.
5 minutes walk to the beach.
2 minutes to the pool and tennis courts.
Clean, homey, plenty of beach toys.
Extremely elegant and great for beach and pool
The first impression was WOW! The house is furnished in the best taste and was very clean. As a party of 4 adults with 4 children we had a great time. There was plenty of space and the 3 bath rooms were great to manage the morning and evening easily. Jennifer was so helpful and replied very quickly to solve our issue with the door lock within a day. Thanks again for this.
The beach is a bit of a walk but we‘ve found everything that we needed to have a great time: a buggy, umbrellas, toys and towells. In the afternoon we went to the pool just across the street. It‘s a big (!) pool which was never croweded when we were there and there were also lots of sunloungers and umbrellas.
We also enjoyed some BBQs using the big grill.
Be aware that there is a significant number of mosquitos. However you can prepare yourself.
@Jennifer: we had a great time and the sea food at Mar Vista was awesome
Great property for two families. Large open concept with lots of bedrooms in new condition. Close to the beach and we were able to kayak everyday right from the backyard. Would re-book again for sure.
We had a great week at this beach house. Close to beach and pool and included lots of extras like bikes, kayaks and beach supplies. Highly recommend
Family didn’t want to leave!
This private home was perfect for our annual grandsons’ beach trip. The layout was perfect to give my husband, me, daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandsons plenty of room and privacy when needed. It is beautifully decorated, very clean, comfortable and provided everything we needed for a week at the beach. Located close to beautiful beaches and only about an hour drive from Tampa International Airport. The owner, Jennifer, was so easy to work with and very accommodating. We will definitely be back!!
Fantastic Property with Beach, Bay, and Pool Access
We have rented homes for years and Jennifer's home is the one of the nicest we've stayed in. It was a total rehab and everything is new and decorated perfectly. The beds and furniture were extremely comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. We had 6 teenagers with us (all cousins) and they enjoyed the kayaks, the fitness center, the pool, the bikes, and the beach all week. We had AMI Paddleboard drop off two boards for the kids to use in addition to the kayaks and we all enjoyed being able to paddle to the bay from the house. We explored other beaches through the week, and our favorite was Bayfront Park on Anna Maria Island. After a long morning at the beach, though, the kids just wanted to relax at Jennifer's house ... playing Monopoly, putting together puzzles and watching movies at night. It was a perfect celebration for our high school graduates and the house could not have been more perfect!
