About Liz Sorgi

We purchase this home from the original owner who had the home built back in 1958. She was a school teacher and nature lover. She also had an affinity for modern concept living.

We kept her exterior design and refurbished the home to meet the needs of modern family life.

The floors are the original Terrazzo floors. We redesigned the two bedroom two bath home into a three bedroom three bath home with updated amenities.

If you are a lover of Mid-Century Modern, our home will meet your expectations.

Liz Sorgi purchased this house in 2005

Beautiful home and garden, tastefully decorated

  • 5 of 5

Our family ( 2 kids) enjoyed a very relaxing week here over Christmas. The house is very carefully decorated with some interesting art. The garden is small but beautiful. The residential street is quiet.

We enjoyed walking the 300 yards or so to the beach. The beach access is across a main road so small kids need to be supervised. The beach itself is absolutely wonderful. Soft white sand and warm water - even in December!

Longboat key is a quiet, laid back place. Come here if you are looking to slow down and enjoy some peace and quiet alongside a beautiful beach!

Lovely home, perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week after Christmas here and couldn't have enjoyed it more. The house is extremely comfortable. The furniture and artwork are stunning. The layout and the well-supplied kitchen and closets make for very easy living. The garden and patio area off the sunroom is particularly charming, and we spent a lot of time there. With the big trees and lush plantings, it feels like a private paradise. My favorite times during our stay were the lingering breakfasts we had out there every morning, with kids and adults sitting around the glass table drinking coffee and talking lazily. The beach is extraordinarily pretty and not crowded; we tried to end each evening there and watch the sunset with drinks in hand. A perfect vacation.

Lovely, quiet, home

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home. The moment we walked in, though bleary-eyed from our cross-country flight from Oregon, we were immediately dazzled. We've stayed many times in past years at Lido Key and Longboat Key, and this is by far the best home we've ever stayed in. Not only is it spacious, private, and nicely furnished (loved the down comforters), but the owner has included all the amenities to make our stay hassle-free. There were spices, spreads, foil and plastic wrap in the kitchen; shampoo, shave cream, and miscellaneous toiletries in the bathroom; laundry detergent and stain remover in the laundry area..... All these little things, though seemingly inconsequential, made it so easy to "move right in" for a week. The neighborhood is quiet, and the short walk to the beach several times each day was a breeze. Loved our stay. Simply loved it. Thank you.

Wonderful get-away!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house and was in a great location! The owner has done a great job of renovating the home and equipping it with everything you need. There were even beach chairs and unbrellas for the beach. My favorite part of the house was the sunroom and the garden...a great place to spend the morning reading.

The beach was a short and pleasant walk away and the sunsets right over the ocean were breathtaking.

Longboat Key is a beautiful area. It's probably one of the prettiest beaches I've seen. The owner answered questions I had before arrival and she was available during our stay. We had a short storm while we were there and I had to contact her. She answered immediately and resolved the minor electrical issue.

I would recommend this property to anyone wanting a relaxing place to escape!

Fantastic, Peaceful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our visit to this home on Longboat Key. We loved the peaceful location, and the greenery around the home adding to the feeling of seclusion. The house was everything we expected, very clean and welled stocked. Especially enjoyed the gas grill, cooking out a couple of times.

Teenage kids walked to the private beach everyday, often multiple times a day. The private beach access was simply perfect - we practically had the beach to ourselves most times and this was "Spring Break" week. We hope to return next year!

Wonderful break from a horrible winter...

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything promised and more. The terrific location was very quiet and a short walk from the lovely beach. The house is beautiful as is the landscaping, and it's comfortably furnished with interesting mid century modern furniture that matches the architecture perfectly. We ate breakfast there every day and cooked dinner several times, and found the kitchen to be well outfitted and easy to use. We shared the home with another couple, and it definitely lends itself to both privacy and easy socializing. One in our party had quite a bit of work to do, and he loved having his lengthy phone calls at the table outside in the warm sunshine! Liz the owner is friendly and need to get in touch with her during our stay, but she was nice as can be and very responsive when I contacted her before our trip. I would recommend this home without reservation.
