About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6 in Tempur-Pedic Beds

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.

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.

The home is outfitted with the newest and most-up-to-date electronics including high speed wireless and digital cable. The home includes three brand new Samsung high definition Smart TVs.

A private outdoor shower is conveniently located right off the beach.

Publix and CVS are less than two miles away.

Do not miss reading 100 different comments from recent guest stays below the location map and manager info.

Thank you for checking on our property. We look forward to providing you with an incredible time right on the Gulf of Mexico.

Best beach location and closest to the water!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five spent one week at this incredible property. This is the only beach house left on Longboat Key like this and it is right on the water. When we sat on the screened in back porch, it felt like we were on a cruise ship. The home is very private and has a fun outdoor shower on the lower level. We have never seen sunsets like what we saw at this home.

The home is very clean and immaculate and up-to-date with fast WiFi, great HDTVs, stainless steel appliances, Tempurpedic beds, and great furniture.

Right across the street is Bayfront Park that has tennis courts, pickle ball, basketball, kayak launch, walking paths and a great place to relax and read. I walked across the street every morning to the convenience store to buy coffee and newspapers.

The location of the home is excellent being only a few minutes from St. Armands Circle and downtown Sarasota. A new Publix supermarket and CVS are less than two miles from the home. The restaurants nearby are fantastic. We enjoyed the Chart House, Zota Beach Resort, Tommy Bahama, Dry Dock, and Lazy Lobster.

The house owners provided two bicycles that we enjoyed riding, tennis and pickle ball rackets, and two kayaks. We enjoyed beach walks every day.

We cannot wait to come back to this incredible historic and famous beach house.

About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Longboat Key

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.

What makes this house unique

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!


Walk right across the street (Gulf of Mexico Drive) to Bayfront Park which includes two, free, lighted tennis courts, shuffleboard, a basketball court, a soccer field,and a baseball field all which border Sarasota Bay. There is also great fishing from the park and its piers. Four high quality Wilson tennis racquets are in the home for your use.

Also included is a portable Bose iPhone docking station for your listening pleasure.
