About the Property

3BR, 3BA, Covered Pool, Private Dock, Garage, WiFi, Cable TV

Our three bedroom home is very well equipped, is bright, sunny and clean and has everything you could possibly need in your home away from home. Sleeps eight comfortably (king-size in the first floor master; two twins in second bedroom, queen in third bedroom and a hide-a-bed in the living room).

With a beautiful pool out back under the screen-covered lanai, you can relax with a cool drink and sit in the abundant sunshine. Situated on a deep water canal, you can tie up your boat or rent one nearby. Take a short stroll to our white sandy beach. The sunsets at the beach are absolutely breathtaking! Theme parks within one to three hours are Busch Gardens of Tampa Bay, Disney World, and Universal Studios.

For those of you who wish to stay in touch with your business; or for your kids, who may need to complete some school-work; or for simply staying in contact with family and friends: Our home offers high speed internet service, and a wireless HP AirPrint Photosmart 7510 printer that copies, scans, and faxes. - All you need to bring is your lap top or your iPad.

Downstairs you will find a fully-equipped kitchen attached to a family room with fireplace and television, a formal living room and separate dining room that look out onto the pool as well as a separate laundry room off of the kitchen. Off of the pool/family room area there is a separate pool bath for your convenience which is equipped with a shower. There is also a spacious two car garage.

For your convenience the master bedroom suite is located off to the right on the main floor as well with it's own bathroom with separate toilet/bidet room and walk in closet.

Walk up a few stairs to find the 2nd bedroom equipped with twin beds and then up a few more to the queen size bedroom. These two bedrooms share the bathroom together which is equipped with tub/shower.

Car: Recommended

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 three blocks away from our home where you have the feeling that you have your own private beach. Longboat boasts some of the wealthiest residents, and finest restaurants in the Sarasota area. Take a dip in he large heated pool (pool heat separate charge) or sip a cool drink in the screened-in lanai out back as you decide what to do for the day. Explore the beach, perhaps a round of golf, or a game of tennis nearby.

From our 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.
