About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy a great vacation home on the north end of Longboat Key near Longboat Pass. This home is set on a lovely bayou and across from the best beach on the island. This wonderfully decorated three-story home features updated furniture and tropical decor throughout with two garages and a screened in pool on the first level.

Upstairs, on the main living level, you will enjoy an open floor plan with a bright kitchen and breakfast bar for six plus a dining area and living room. Both guest bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths are located on this floor as well.

Access the master bedroom suite (third level) via a spiral staircase or elevator and there you will find a spacious master bedroom with it's own bath including garden tub, walk in shower and two lavatories. Walk outside to a private sunning deck under a pergola.

Enjoy a short stroll to the white sandy beach or swim in your own private pool in the screened in lanai area. The colorful sunsets off of your balcony or at the beach are absolutely breathtaking! You will find an abundance of wildlife throughout the area including birds, dolphins and manatees.

Longboat Key is on the West Coast of Florida, near Sarasota and one hour south of Tampa. Sought-after Longboat Key has some of the most unspoiled beaches in the area. Our access is only a short walk away (5 minutes) from our home where you have the feeling that you have your own private beach.

Longboat Key boasts some of the wealthiest residents, and finest restaurants in the Sarasota area. From this home, it's a matter of minutes to St. Armand's Circle, a shopping paradise. Longboat Key is a ten-mile long barrier island attached at each end by a bridge to the mainland. If you would like to go to theme parks - we are one hour from Busch Gardens of Tampa Bay or two and a half hours from Disney and Universal Studios. Galleries, museums, and live theater are within a 25 minute drive.
