Why Candria Crisp chose Longboat Key
We love this home not only because of its great waterfront location on southern Longboat Key, but also because of it wonderful layout, fantastic pool and its secret garden.
What makes this House unique

Our canal front home with direct access to Sarasota Bay is also a short walk to the beautiful beaches of Longboat Key (just minutes to our deeded beach access). We're also a short distance to world-renowned St. Armand’s Circle, downtown Sarasota and Marina Jack's on the waterfront. We have a local property manager who lives within 5 miles of our home and is available to help our guests with their needs while staying at our home.

Great location. Spacious house on the canal. Well appointed.
We had a wonderful month in this very nice house on LBK. This is our 4th year renting and this was the nicest house of all. Located near the southern part of LBK made for easier exit to St, Armands and the mainland. The weather could have been a bit nicer but that is how it goes.
Everything about this house is just perfect. It's location in Country Club Shores allows for plenty of walking, biking and just a short walk across the street to the beach. Inside it is fresh and clean, decorated with a contemporary flair. The lanai and pool are delightful. We loved the sunroom off the kitchen. Can't wait to visit again soon!
Thank you so much for your kind words and great review! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you as our guests again!
