What makes this house unique

Longboat Key is a vacation gem located 60 miles south of Tampa and just off-shore from Bradenton/Sarasota. Home to some of the states finest five-star restaurants and twelve miles of gleaming white beaches. Longboat has an unmistakable air of exclusivity.

Year after year, Longboat Key is ranked among the top vacation destinations in Conde Nast's 'Reader Choice Awards'.

Bridged from the north at Anna Maria Island and south to Lido Key, vacationers are welcomed to a land of tasteful luxury and tempting quiet pleasures.

With an average year round temp of 75 degrees this lushly manicured isle is conducive for just about everything. Golf and tennis enthusiasts will find first class facilities while joggers, cyclists and rollerblades can tour Longboat's 10 mile paved pathway along Gulf of Mexico Drive.

The island's bayside and Intra-coastal waterway offers plenty of opportunity for wind & kite surfing, kayaking and paddle-boarding. Fisherman can explore the many bays and backwaters while boaters can take to the Gulf for deep sea fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling.

This isle has some of the finest beaches in the world for shelling, birding or simply a romantic moonlit stroll.

We invite vacation in our home and share in our little isle's recreational opportunities, shopping, stunning beaches and award winning restaurants.

Great time in paradise!

Lovely house in great location. We enjoyed the pool and had some great meals on the patio. Perfect ending to our trip was a sunset dolphin cruise with Captain Ben from AMI. We hope to visit again soon.

The house was PERFECT :)

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful and was decorated beautifully. Since we flew into Florida it is impossible to pack everything that you need, but the owners of the home had everything that we needed and then some. Thanks for the wonderful week we will definitly be back.

Relaxing in a Spacious Oasis

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived and checked out the backyard, we saw two mommy and two baby manatees in the canal. We watched them for 30 minutes.

The AC works really well. We have stayed in some homes that took a long time to cool down; this home is not one of them.

The master suite off of the pool ,kitchen, and living area is perfect with a large off suite bathroom. The towels are very soft and there is no shortage of linens.

The kitchen is amazing: spacious, renovated, and the fridge is enormous with lots of storage.

The living room is very comfortable as is the furniture. Plenty of seating.

Upstairs is adorable with one small bedroom and a larger bedroom with amazing views. The bathroom upstairs is also wonderful and stocked with towels.

The washer/dryer are very convenient to have as a bonus as is the covered parking- for rainstorms and keeping the car cool.

The backyard: the pool and tub are outstanding. I can keep my chin above water in the deep end and there are plenty of seating areas to cool off both in and out of the pool. If you're interested in sunbathing, you will be in equal bliss.

We ate most meals on the enormous covered patio and though it was 97 degrees in the sun, we were all shocked that we were very comfortable in the shade.

Local beaches need no introduction: amazing and not crowded.

Restaurants you must dine, call for prices but midnight end prices, dress is casual but no bathing suits ;)

- Lazy Lobster: a few blocks from this property

-Crab and Fin: St. Armands Circle

- Salty Dog

- The Bridge Tender will cook your catch for you if you clean it, just call in advance

Need a captain? Mac Gregory will be an amazing guide. His skipper Tim was super friendly and we had a blast. You can call the Keys Marina (18 minutes from the house) in Anna Maria Island and 4 hours yielded over 10 lbs of red snapper and 1 lb if sea trout-- these are the weights AFTER Mac fileted our catch. Super fun time, just kept the reels bringing in the fish.

3 adults, no kids, this property, this part of Florida= we will be back.

Our home is a 5 minute walk to a quiet, peaceful beach where you can walk for miles....and look for beautiful shells and sand dollars. The beaches on Longboat are beautiful and serene.

St. Armand's Circle is just 15 minutes away with fine restaurants and great shopping.
