Executive home on Longboat Key with large kitchen, private pool and hot tub, gorgeous bay view from the front with a canal out back.

Enjoy your Vacation in a luxury estate home built in 2011 on beautiful Longboat Key. Enjoy water views of the bay or the peaceful canal from virtually every room in this bright, sun filled home.

High end finishes on every surface greet you as you begin your holiday. Luxurious linens and brand new mattresses will make you feel like you are sleeping in the finest hotel as you climb into bed at the end of the day.

This home features wood flooring throughout the house & a kitchen that is a cook's dream. The kitchen includes: full size Sub Zero refrigerator & separate full size freezer; wolf gas range & 2 ovens & 2 microwaves. 4 separate Fisher Paykal dishwasher drawers make clean up a breeze. Beautiful rare granite covers the island, peninsula and all counters throughout the kitchen.

Continue your entertainment outside in the screened in porch area off the kitchen with full size outdoor kitchen including a gas grill, sink and seating for 6. Walk down the stairs to the beautiful sparkling pool to enjoy the sun or walk to the canal to fish off the dock or out front to launch a kayak (you can rent nearby). Two porches grace the front of the home with comfortable furniture to watch the gorgeous bay view as you look for dolphins, birds and fish. Try your luck at fishing off the pier out back. Rent a boat and tie it up on your dock.

Outfitted with high speed internet access and wifi throughout, you can easily work from home for an extended stay so bring your laptop!

This home sleeps 10 comfortably with a king-size bed in the master; three separate guest rooms each with en suite bath and queen size bed and a set of twin beds with en suite bath downstairs off the pool area.

Wake up to a view of the bay or canal from every bedroom. Take a short stroll to the 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.

We use our home often for ourselves and our family throughout the Summer months so contact us to see if we can fit you in between visits requiring less than a month.

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 the 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 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.

About Farida Syed

We have enjoyed Longboat as our second home for over 15 years. We are so excited about our newest home which was just completed in 2011. We have two grown children and 3 wonderful grandsons who all come to enjoy the house often.

Farida Syed purchased this house in 2011

Why Farida Syed chose Florida South West

We love the north end of Longboat Key for its relaxed neighborhood feel and proximity to the beach.

What makes this house unique

The north end of Longboat Key provides easy access to beautiful beaches (just a 8 minute walk on foot to our beach access) and Anna Maria Island. We have a local property manager that lives in Sarasota and she can help with any situation you may have while staying in our home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I, 2 daughters with their significant others, and a granddaughter used this home for a week and could not have been happier with it. Its ample features and amenities, as well as its easy proximity to the beach, restaurants, tennis complex, Siesta Key and Sarasota made it ideal for our purposes. The home's pool certainly added to the fun. The homeowner's local rep, Pam, could not have been more cooperative and interested in our enjoyment of the home. On a scale of 1-10, the whose experience was an enthusiastic 10.

Relaxing Oasis

  • 5 of 5

A relaxation oasis is exactly what my family of ten from ages 11 to 69 needed. Immediately on entering the home you could feel that this was going to be a retreat. The sound of the waterfall in the pool lured us to the outside to find a spacious outdoor living area around the pool and hot tub. The pool made for a great family gathering spot after spending the day on the beach. Outside the gate of the pool was a dock on the canal. A place to relax on the bench, watch the fish swim or fish.

The first floor offered an open foyer to access the upper floors via steps or the elevator. The elevator was great for those in our group that have mobility issues. A bedroom with twin beds and a restroom was just outside the foyer adjacent to the pool area.

The second floor you are greeted with amazing views of the bay. There was an island in the bay which birds flock to and made for great viewing from the second-floor front balcony. The back second floor balcony was screened in and featured an outdoor kitchen area for grilling. The kitchen was my chef husband’s dream. We ended up only eating out twice during our trip because we enjoyed the kitchen so much. The second-floor bedroom was a spacious retreat with a private bathroom. Tucked in one of the windows was a chess set on a small table with two chairs. The chess area became a nightly ritual of chess champion (I didn’t even realize my kids knew how to play).

The third floor offered even more amazing view of the bay in the front and the canal in the back. The master suite offered an open walk in shower with rain head shower was added surprise that made this house even more luxurious. The third floor also had two additional bedrooms with attached bathrooms and a conveniently located laundry on the third floor.

Refrigerators on each level made it very nice to have refreshments easily available. The garage was stocked with beach chairs and beach toys. There were also two bikes if anyone wanted to take a spin.

The location was a short walk to a very private beach that had crystal blue waters and amazing sea shells. The sea life was amazing, we saw dolphins, a school of white fish came swimming by and hop out of the water and a group of manatees came swimming by us so close we could pet them.

This was not just a vacation rental house, it felt as if it was our home away from home. This will be our home to rent on our next visit and we have already recommended to several friends.

A Relaxation Oasis

  • 5 of 5

A relaxation oasis is exactly what my family of ten from ages 11 to 69 needed. Immediately on entering the home you could feel that this was going to be a retreat. The sound of the waterfall in the pool lured is to the outside to find a spacious outdoor living area around the pool and hot tub. The pool had several depths and seating to ensure that our 6’3” son and our adventurous grandson could enjoy. The pool made for a great family gathering spot after spending the day on the beach. Outside the gate of the pool was a dock on the canal. A place to relax on the bench, watch the fish swim or fish.

The first floor offered an open foyer to access the upper floors via steps or the elevator. The elevator was great for those in our group that have mobility issues. A bedroom with twin beds and a restroom, which work well of our two twenty-year old sons, was just outside the foyer adjacent to the pool area.

The second floor you are greeted with amazing views of the bay. There was an island in the bay which birds flock to and made for great morning and evening viewing from the second-floor front balcony. The back second floor balcony was screened in and featured an outdoor kitchen area for grilling. The kitchen was my chef husband’s dream. The two microwaves, larger freezer and refrigerator, four dishwasher drawers, three ovens and multiple burner stove made meal preparations a breeze. We ended up only eating out twice during our trip because we enjoyed the kitchen so much. The kitchen became the central hub for the vacation. There was a connected family room with television that the children enjoyed some late-night television time. The second-floor bedroom was a spacious retreat for our older son and his wife with a private bathroom. The “pretty room”, a living area on the second floor in the front of the home, offered magnificent views. Tucked in one of the windows was a chess set on a small table with two chairs. The chess area became a nightly ritual of chess champion (I didn’t even realize my kids knew how to play).

The third floor offered even more amazing view of the bay in the front and the canal in the back. The master suite was very spacious with a sitting area to view the bay. This spot became my favorite to have a moment of relaxation and watch the boats on the bay. The open walk in shower with rain head shower and regular shower head was added surprise that made this house even more luxurious. There was also a large jetted tub. T

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this house! It's even more beautiful in-person than in the pictures. This house has everything you need for your stay - bikes, beach accessories, plenty of towels & everything you need in a kitchen. It's great for fishing, too - either in the bay out front or canal fishing right off the dock out back. Also, just a walk to the gulf. Every room has a balcony and a great view. Absolutely beautiful!!!!!! The owner and house manager were nice as could be and were very helpful in planning our trip. I would definitely stay again and would highly recommend this house to others!!!!

A wonderful vacation in a beautiful home in paradi

  • 5 of 5

We vacation periodically on Longboat Key Fl (near Sarasota) but this year a group of 9 friends decided to rent this home. Can't say anything more than it's an absolutely beautiful home situated on a canal with water views out front and back. The home is equipped with just about everything you could want and is beautifully furnished. You won't regret vacationing in this home and will love Longboat Key as much as we all did.

My second visit to this beautifully maintained home will be followed by the third in 2015

The owner has provided everything you need for a holiday for the family or just to 'chill'. Enjoy the local restaurants or bbq by the pool. Either way..this is a piece of heaven

Beautiful Home- Would Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! You will not be disappointed. Has all of the amenities you could possibly need. The home itself is just beautiful and spacious. Plenty of room for everyone. Pool was great and used everyday by the kids. Lots of wonderful seating outside for grilling and enjoying a meal with the family while enjoying the view and the beautiful Florida weather. We took walks every day to the beach. The area itself has tons of things to do. St. Armand's Circle was maybe a 10-15 minute ride with lots of shops and amazing restaurants. Great place to walk around. We stayed at this amazing home for 2 weeks and loved every minute. We would highly recommend this beautiful home and hope to visit there again ourselves soon.
