About the Property

4 bedroom, 3.5 bath heated pool on deep water canal with direct access to gulf

Welcome to Beach & Boaters Paradise where you will have immediate access to beautiful Sarasota Bay, the Gulf of Mexico and Longboat Key’s sugar white sand beaches and emerald green waters.

Picture yourself vacationing in this beautifully remodeled home on fabulous Longboat Key - perfectly located on a deep water canal with a dock that can accommodate a 40+ foot boat, only minutes by boat to the Bay and less than two miles to the Gulf inlet. The deeded beach access is a short walk across Gulf of Mexico Drive. This 4-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom luxury waterfront vacation rental was designed to provide you and your family a lifetime of vacation memories to cherish.

The dock-side screened patio has a large family-friendly heated pool and abundant lounging areas that invite you to swim the day away or just relax and read a book. Enjoy sunset dinners cooked on the built-in gas grill and dine “al fresco” at the outdoor dining table next to the pool as you watch the fish jumping by the dock!

This one story home features chiseled travertine stone floors throughout. The spacious, yet comfy, great room has pocket sliding glass doors that open to the patio and maximize the outside water views. The high-end kitchen easily accommodates a large group with center Island, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and all the cookware you will need to make sumptuous meals!

There are several amenities to make you feel at home including washer and dryer. The great room has a 55” LED TV with Verizon cable and a Blue Ray player. You can stay connected with friends and family via free phone calls to the U.S. and Canada as well as the use of the free high speed wireless internet.

All of the bedrooms were designed with comfort in mind. The master suite has a king size bed that overlooks the pool and canal. The elegant en suite bath has dual sinks and an oversized shower. If you need the storage space, there is a huge walk-in closet.

The second Master features a queen size bed, adjoining full bath and French doors opening to the pool. The third and fourth bedrooms are furnished with queen size beds and are adjacent to the third bathroom with tub and shower.
The half bath is located near the great room.

The home has an open floor plan and will easily accommodate a big family on vacation or group of friends on an excursion. We invite you to be our guests.

[A word about Longboat Key: Longboat Key is a desired vacation spot because it has a laid-back feel with its sunny, pristine beaches.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I was born and raised in Ohio and when I met my husband, Lou, he was living in Florida. It took a little convincing and moved to Stuart, Florida in 2000 – and in case you were wondering, I don’t miss the snow and ice at all! I invested in real estate even when I was in Ohio. So when I relocated to Florida I became a licensed realtor with Berkshire Hathaway. My sister and brother live in the Sarasota area, and when we came to visit, I would hunt for real estate. When we saw this house we liked the layout, location and possibilities. It was big enough for large gatherings, yet not too big for a couple. My husband and I completely remodeled the home – literally from top to bottom. We wanted to make the home family-friendly, open and welcoming. We’re sure you’ll enjoy it as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Longboat Key, FL, USA:
Like us, you will find that Longboat Key is a unique place. The island life style is casual and fun. Our home is in a nice residential community and only 2 miles to St. Armand’s Circle for shopping and restaurants (and there’s a Kilwin’s Ice Cream Shop). The Mote Marine Aquarium is a mile away. There are miles of beach just across the way. We are boaters and love the west Florida waters. The house has a big deep water dock. We are minutes to Sarasota Bay and a little over a mile by water to the New Pass Inlet to the Gulf. And if that wasn’t enough we have easy access to all the culture that Sarasota has to offer. Plus we love the sunsets.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is a one stop shop for a perfect vacation, retreat or family get-together. The deep water dock allows you to rent or bring your boat next to the house. The layout of the house has large gathering spaces and at the same time separated bedrooms for privacy. The kitchen is fully equipped with high-end appliances and has lots of counter space and room. The expansive beach is close by and all the amenities of a big city are a short ride over the bridge. Or you can stay at home and enjoy the grill, deck and pool.
