The historic and famous Longboat Key Beach House provides the most spectacular beach enjoyment anywhere in Florida. The very private white-sand beach at the middle of Longboat Key is second-to-none. The sunsets from this oceanfront, beachfront property are the most colorful and vivid found anywhere.
This Cypress wood beach cottage, constructed in 1965, is one of the few remaining true Florida beach homes. The location is perfect as it is less than 10 minutes to St. Armands Circle and 15 minutes to downtown Sarasota. Driving over bridges around Sarasota and Longboat Key provides the simple pleasure of seeing water everywhere.
This home is clean, smoke-free, and animal-free which is a welcome relief for allergy sufferers.
Located right on the beach, you feel like you are on the beach even when you are in the home.
This home is right on the 10-mile bike path that runs the length of Longboat Key. Renting bikes allows anyone to bike to great restaurants and shops. The Sarasota area boasts of nearly 100 great golf courses and dozens of tennis courts.
Even though this home is historic, it is outfitted with the newest and most-up-to-date electronics including high speed wireless and cable television with Verizon FiOS. The home includes three brand new Samsung high definition Smart TVs and a Sony PS3 which doubles as a Blu-Ray DVD player.
In November of 2011, new linens and towels were purchased brand new from Pottery Barn. In addition, new Pottery Barn bar stools, furniture, beds, and televisions were purchased. A new double chaise lounge from Pottery Barn was also purchased for the screened-in porch right on the Gulf of Mexico.
An outdoor shower with hot and cold water is conveniently located right off the beach.
A Publix supermarket and CVS pharmacy are less than two miles away. Longboat Key and the Sarasota area are home to many fine restaurants with some very fine restaurants less than five miles away.

About: We are a family of five from Indiana and love coming to our beach house at Longboat Key. Being here is simply paradise. We hope that you can relax and enjoy the sun and surf as much as we do.
Why Longboat Key, FL, USA:
We believe that we had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase an historic Florida beach cottage right on the Gulf of Mexico beach with 100+' of very private beach frontage directly on the Gulf of Mexico. This historic beachfront cottage was built in 1965 and is known as the famous Longboat Key Beach House. Even though Longboat Key is private, safe and exclusive, it is only 15 minutes to very cosmopolitan Sarasota with a vibrant arts and theatre community.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The views, the beach, and the sunsets are second to none at this incredible beach house. We have 2 new Schwin Bikes for you to ride on the amazing bike path. We have biked over the Big Sarasota Bridge into Downtown Sarasota or Marina Jack's!
