Property description

Longboat Key is known for it's pristine and private beaches. The island is approximately 11 miles long and less than a mile wide in places. A walk from the bay to the beach takes 5 minutes! Our house is on a canal near the bay.

Our home is perfect for a large family, family gathering or two families that want to travel together AND remain friends. Four of the bedrooms have full bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms have enough sleeping space for 4 kids each! (Yes, let them bring their friends.) The guest bedroom is close to the kids, but affords enough privacy that you won't be bothered. There is a fourth bedroom on the main floor with a full bed. The master suite, is on the 3rd floor, tucked away all to itself. The 400 sq ft. master suite overlooks the bay. The bathroom has granite countertops, a separate marble shower and an over-sized tub.

The kitchen is completely stocked for the chef. Large pots, pans and cooking utensils galore. The countertops are granite and the refrigerator is stainless steel. There is a dining area right off the kitchen and on an outside veranda. We have a separate TV room that is extremely large. You can travel with friends, but still find space to spend time alone.

Longboat is an exclusive island off the coast of Florida near Sarasota. Sarasota is a small city with all the amenities you could ever want on vacation. Movies, theater, museums, antique stores and five star restaurants. Everything is near Longboat. Our beach is isolated and exclusive, but if you have teens, or want a busy beachfront, Bradenton Beach is just 5 minutes from our home. You just travel across the bridge to find the crowds; come back onto Longboat when you want an isolated beach. The best of both worlds are available to you!

We have bikes, tennis racquets, buckets and boogie boards for the beach and a closet FULL of board games and kids toys. Disney and the Central Florida theme parks are just 2 hours away. Busch Gardens and Tampa are 1 hour north.
