About Blythe Jeffers
We hope you will enjoy Longboat Key as much as we do. This is a special place that we would love to share with you.
We do a lot of boating and beaching while we are here. The small islands and sandbars provide a great playground for little and big kids. And the dolphins make you smile.
We love to walk down to the beach with a glass of wine and watch the beautiful sunsets. It is the perfect end to another lovely day in paradise.
As an added bonus, we have relatives in the area and always enjoy getting together with family for special occasion or an afternoon of sailing.
Blythe Jeffers purchased this house in 2008
Why Blythe Jeffers chose Longboat Key
We love the short walk to the beach and direct access to the InterCoastal Waterway. We have friends on one of the islands in Sarasota Bay and love to boat over to visit them.
What makes this house unique
There are so many things to do here -- there is something for everyone.
Terrific golf and tennis. For the water lovers you can power boat, kayak, sail, and jet ski.
And then there is the beach -- nature's playground. The beaches are wide, the water is clear, and the surf is calm. If you prefer to play in your own backyard you can swim in our pool or hang out on the dock and watch the fish and birds at play.
And when that urge to shop hits, your car will find it's way to the fabulous St Armands Circle.
A short drive into Sarasota opens up the arts - you can enjoy theatre, gardens, museums and so much more.
The restaurants are great. From the seafood salad at Starfish to the chef's special at Euphemia Haye - you can't go wrong.
There is something for everyone on Longboat Key.
