Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I love the island and meeting interesting guest from around the world. We truly live in paradise. I live across the street with my lovely wife Elaine and we are at the beach for sunsets often. We are blessed to live our life here.

Why the Owner Chose Longboat Key, FL, USA:
Very quiet neighborhood, not a condo setting. Walk to 3-4-5 star restaurants. 1000 feet to a breathtakingly beautiful 32 acre park with walks and boardwalks through the mangroves with overlooks of Sarasota bay.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quiet, comfortable, secure, feels like home. Great place to read a book, or write one....
