Longboat Key House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

The Palm House is a 4 Bedroom, 3 bath home that was created for those with discerning taste. When you drive through the gates you will know that you’ve reached your private retreat. This enclave of 5 residences is a rare find.

You will luxuriate in every amenity. Pool Lovers will swim in the beautiful free form pool or relax in the hot tub in view of the Palm House. Boat lovers will walk the shell path to your private boat slip with electricity and water. Only 200 paces to your treasure of white powdery sand, and you will enjoy magnificent Gulf sunsets.

Total renovations were completed for the holiday season of 2007. This includes ALL new furniture, carpeting, paintings, linens, a kitchen FULLY stocked, 4 HD flat screens, Bose surround sound/stereo system in the living room with additional controls for your listening throughout the house, 2 state of the art Dell computers, and fax. If you are traveling alone or with family and friends you will each find your own paradise.

The unique location of Longboat Key is within minutes of downtown Sarasota, the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, museums, fine dining and the infamous shops of St. Armand’s Circle. Over the bridge to the North are the quaint villages of Anna Maria Island. If you want to travel to Tampa you will find the Zoo, Busch Gardens and Adventure Island Water Park. Only 2 hours away will bring you to the “Magic Kingdom” of Disney World, Epcot Center, Sea World and ALL that surrounds Orlando.

The Palm House was aptly named; for it is surrounded by every species of palm trees. The bristling of the tall palms will be heard throughout your stay and the view of the different palm fronds will remain with you long after you have left Longboat key.

Book your weeks in paradise today and enjoy a hearty breakfast on us, about a mile and a half bike ride away, at the Blue Dolphin Café.

My husband and I own a Real Estate company in New York. Jim has been in the real estate business for 40 years.(he doesn't look that old but he is) Lol. He has 3 older children and we have 1 together! We are proud grandparents of 4 little girls. We love to come to our Longboat Key home to escape the hustle and bustle of our crazy New York life. We visit LBK, not enough, but when we do we enjoy it so much! Our family is very important to us and anytime they can they are here with us.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

My husband and I fell in LOVE with the West coast of Florida 12 years ago when his mom and dad where moving to Bradenton. We found Longboat Key by driving up the west coast of Florida and stopping in each place along the coast. It was LOVE at first site! It feels like the Bahamas to us and remind us of Hawaii. Longboat Key is our paradise away from home. The beautiful water of the gulf and the powder beaches won our hearts! We live on an Island just like longboat key in New York and wouldn't have it any other way...we just couldn't. Longboat key is a special Island that takes your breathe away the moment you drive over the North or South bridge. Sarasota which is just South of LBK is a fabulous city with lots of cultural, great places to eat, shop, dock your boat or yacht, and just enjoy. St. Armands Circle located on Lido Key just off Longboat is a GREAT place to walk by day OR night and find great places to eat and shop. We LOVE it here and hope to live there more someday in the future!

The Palm House is a place that will melt your cares away! It is our home away from home and so we have made it as comfortable as possible for anyone! We live in a gated community of 5 single family homes(just about finished with the gate). The pool is adjacent to our home making it so convenient. There is a hot tub to relax you from a busy day at the beach or on the boat. the beach is a 3 minute walk across the street and you can dock your boat in our boat slip. The home has every amenity that you could think of and it is painted so cheerfully that any room you walk into should bring a smile to your face!

Great family vacation!

It's been a good family vacation in the super property. A few little technical issues have been identified and fixed quickly by the owner. A beautiful location close to the beach. We recommand without concern.

great family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We all enjoyed a wonderful vacation week, 5 adults, 4 children who loved the bunk room, the beach,pool and numerous beach and pool toys. the home is lovely with 2 screened in porches, spacious living and sleeping areas so that the week was enjoyed by all. Great being able to walk to the beautiful uncrowded beach and then return to the pool, bike along the bike path, and enjoy Sarasota a short drive away. The owners were wonderful and responsive , even to a left behind bag. we hope to be able to return again.

Fabulous Getaway for Families

  • 5 of 5
When our extended family decided to plan a trip this past spring, we had no idea how lucky we would be when it came to lodging. Entering late in the reservation game, we happened upon what we thought to be a long shot- surely this property would not still be available, could not be available. After a few emails and crossed fingers, we had our reservation secure. Easy. Fast. No problems.

Months later, we were finishing the twenty-two hour drive from Chicago to Long Boat Key. The rest of our family had flown in the day prior, and while they had raved about the property, we were still taken aback by the spacious, beautifully kept house. With five adults and four kids, we had more than enough space to spread out. Whether one needed a break on the screened-in porch (upstairs or down), a place to set-up a game of Uno, or a long afternoon nap, the house had more than enough nooks, crannies, and full out rooms to accommodate. We even had some local family over for dinner, adding another five to our number. Still plenty of room and then some!

Beach access was another plus to this property- cross the street and you’re there! In addition, the complex’s pool is right next to the house. During our stay, we had it all to ourselves. Even if there had been others, though, there would have been plenty of room on the deck and in the pool. The owners have beach chairs, pool toys, sand toys and more for guests to use, saving an expensive trip to the store!

After experiencing three different rental properties in Long Boat Key, this is by far the best we’ve had when coming with extended family. I highly recommend it for families in need of a home setting that can keep everyone in the family happy.

The Palm House Longboat Key, FL

  • 5 of 5
This home is everything you are looking for in a vacation rental. First of all the home is beatifully decorated and very well maintained. The owners have put everthing in this house you could possible need; beach and pool toys, weber gas grill, and also the heated pool and spa (right next to the house, and for the most part we were the only ones at the pool). The beach is just a short walk across Gulf of Mexico Drive, is beautiful, and not crowded at all. My group had five adults and four children and this home had more than enough space to accomodate us all. My family gives this house FIVE STARS. There is no stone left unturned for your vacation needs in this house.

Perfect family home!

  • 5 of 5
Really can't say enough good about this home. We had 6 adults and 3 children. The home is so spacious with many areas to "break away" and rest. Two huge screened in porches. The pool is shared but right in the backyard of this home and we were the only ones ever at the pool. The home is immaculately maintained with so many extras. Lots of toys and tons of beach toys and chairs which made it extra nice. It was also nice to use a couple of the bikes and ride to Harry's for an afternoon treat. The owners take great pride in their home and we felt very blessed to have found it. We had such a wonderful vacation. The owners were super to work with, they would respond literally within seconds of a couple emails I sent with questions. One time the pool was really cold and she called someone and almost immediately there was someone there. Beach is across the street and is beautiful and quiet.

Owner's Response: My husband and I bought this home 6 years ago with the intentions of spending more time on beautiful Longboat Key. We redecorated it, furnished it and stocked it like a home that is lived in and then the real estate market crashed and we were forced to rent it. It has been a pleasure sharing our "home away from home" with ALL whom have stayed with us. We want our guests to come back and many do. We will continue to make the Palm House the BEST it can be for OUR family and yours! Thank you Cheryl for the wonderful review!
