About the Property

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

You'll be enchanted by our lovely Key West style home in historic, laid back Longboat Village at the north end of exclusive Longboat Key. Tastefully relaxed interiors are exquisitely complimented by a heated tropical pool area whose quiet, spa-like ambiance and sparkling waterfall will be yours to enjoy for hours of blissful, private relaxation. Beautifully designed front and rear decks, and side 'adventure path' that leads to our teak wood beach shower stall, are constructed of ipe wood, a high end, sustainable tropical hardwood.

A big draw for Longboat Key and the other Sarasota keys are the gorgeous, world class beaches. Dazzling white sands, juxtaposed against the fine aquamarine blue and green hues of the Gulf of Mexico's gentle waters, offer mesmerizing visuals that are only exceeded at day's end by exquisite sunsets. Sparsely used beach access is an easy walk away; ample parking is available there as well. Sarasota Bay waters are easily accessible in the other direction: just a block away to public boat ramp, pier, and two waterfront restaurants, Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant and Pub, and Moore's Stone Crab Restaurant. Located within walking distance of Historic Longbeach Village, Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, guests can walk or ride bicycles to get everywhere. A free public trolley with air-conditioning and open-air seating services Longboat Key, Anna Maria Island and St. Armand's Circle, and goes in to downtown Sarasota.


And speaking of restaurants, there are plenty of others in easy driving distance on Longboat Key, nearby Anna Maria Island to the north, and at chic St. Armand's Circle on Lido Key just to the south. Our favorite? Euphemia Haye, just a couple miles south on Longboat. For good reason this is a 'pilgrimage' restaurant that many return visitors include as a must on their Sarasota vacation agendas.

There are many other superb vacation attractions in the greater Sarasota area - back bay and deep gulf fishing, to include the king of sport fish, the mighty tarpon; theaters; restaurants; the Sarasota Ballet; the Sarasota Opera; the Sarasota Orchestra (New Florida West Coast Symphony), Asolo Repertory Theater; the John and Mable Ringling Museum and Ca' d'Zan Mansion; Mote Marine Research Lab and Aquarium; the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens; the Sailor Youth Circus; the Sarasota Jungle Gardens; the annual sea turtle hatch; para sailing; boating; diving; major league baseball spring training; the annual 4th of July Suncoast Super Boat Grand Prix Festival; Tampa just 50 minutes to the north; and so much more.
