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.

It was perfect. The home looks just like the pictures. It was very clean and has everything you need. We enjoyed having the dock behind us to park the boat for daily use. The beach was beuatiful and it was nice to have the chairs and umberella for use at the beach. We spent most of the morning on the beach and late afternoon cruise on the boat. The rest of the time was spent on the patio. The patio was great. We enjoyed the stay and look forward to coming back.

Wonderful, well cared for home

  • 5 of 5

My family of three enjoyed this lovely home. The home is clean, cared for and very accommodating. The kitchen is well equipped; the living room is very comfortable with nice HD tv and premium cable package. The wifi also worked great . The bedrooms are updated, fresh and very comfortable. The exterior of the house is very cute with lovely palm trees, carport, beach storage and privacy . The pool and outdoor living space is very relaxing and pretty . The beach is a 5-10 minute easy walk and is lovely and quiet. The location is great. The north end of LBK is quiet but within 10 minutes to Anna Maria Island with all the beachy shops and dining . Plenty of great dining on LBK also. The bike / walking path is fantastic . After renting many vacation spots that disapppinted and I am picky, I highly recommend this home . Thank you Claire for providing your renters with a lovely home.

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 days here in July for a girls weekend. Beautiful home well stocked with EVERYTHING you could possibly need for cooking, beach time, relaxing, game night....whatever you want to enjoy on your vacation. Very nice pool, outside dining area, short walk to the beach. Owner was very helpful and responsive. Home was well maintained and on a quiet street. We would definitely return!

Perfect place for sun-starved travelers!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for six nights (only planned to stay five but added an extra). This house is very comfortable and inviting both inside and out. We spent most of our time lounging on the covered porch, in the pool and at the beach. The owners provide so many amenities that don't usually come with a coastal house. They supplied pool floats, beach chairs, umbrella and cart. There are lots of outdoor seating both in the sun and shade, plus a fabulous hammock! I recommend this house highly and we plan to return again later this year or early next year!!! Thanks Claire for giving us such a fun and relaxing get-away!!!

Great residential location. Perfect for young at heart adults.

  • 5 of 5

The patio was a wonderful gathering spot. ....morning to late at was the hot tub. The kitchen was well equipped and set up well for cooking....we picked up fresh grouper from the Star fish market nearby in Cortez. The beach is easy 3 block walk . The third bedroom is small...found the room and bunks a bit cramped for an adult. Loved our stay and would return.

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.
