Overview

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 7 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.

The Palm House is our Home Away from Home! Everything we have done was for the intention of our family enjoying themselves. We have passed this onto our guests! 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.

We welcome you into our home and hope that you enjoy it as much as we do!

About Kristina and Jim Netter

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.

Kristina and Jim Netter purchased this house in 2007

Why Kristina and Jim Netter chose Longboat Key

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 Sarasota 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!

What makes this house unique

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 7 single family homes. 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!

Palm House

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the "Palm House" very much. A wonderful location right

across the street from a fabulous beach. Our family enjoyed eating al fresco every

night out on the beautiful lanai. The house is really gorgeous and offers plenty of

room for a large family or group of friends. Highly recommend this home for your

next holiday!

Only one word, amazing

  • 5 of 5

We were expecting a nice house but in fact it was an incredible house. Perfect for our party of 8 people, we enjoyed of all the accommodation. Very luxurious, nothing was missing in the kitchen in order to prepare our diners. Very close to the beach, the area was quiet and not crowded what we really enjoyed. We have been renting house on beaches for the last 15 years and it was by far the best ever. Really a five stars!

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.
