About Alise Laroche-Randolph

I grew up in Sarasota and always loved the beach and island life as well as all the cultural venues Sarasota is known for. I left Florida for university and professional reasons, however, always knowing that I would return to the area at a different phase in my life. I'm now married with 3 children, and Longboat Key provides exactly what we seek which is the serenity and tranquility of a beach life yet conveniently located to all the outdoor activities which we seek for as well as being a hop away to all that Sarasota has to offer. We hope to provide a place that would embrace love, tranquility, contentment, and good will to those who visit our home.

Alise Laroche-Randolph purchased this house in 2012

Why Alise Laroche-Randolph chose Longboat Key

I felt very fortunate to have found this lovely property in July 2012 as a vacation house to share with my husband, 3 children, and our family pet. We're looking to retire in the area, and the house was perfect for our needs. The private beach access is now rare in Longboat Key. The house is on a quiet street and away from the noise, and its close proximity to Anna Marie island and Sarasota is a main reason why we chose this particular home.

What makes this house unique

Private beach access; Quiet street yet within walking distance to stores/restaurants/shops; Close proximity to Sarasota and Anna Marie Island; Open floor plan; Dock for boats; Private pool; Regular poo/landscape/pest control services; Fully equip with modern conveniences for a home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us use your home for 2 weeks. We had a great time. The area restaurants are great & the shopping is fun. We found lots of shark teeth between here & Venice beach. My boys loved having the pool to come home to. We would love to be able to return for future vacations!

LBK Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rent in LBK every summer as soon as school is out to decompress, boat, and spend time with family and friends who live on the island. Especially LOVED Jungle Queen because all I needed to do was go! Everything was just as described and ALL the creature comforts one needs for beaching and boating are there graciously shared by the owner and her family. Must Do List: have wine at sunset on beach, shop at Sand Dollar and Ginny and Jane E's in Anna Maria, discover happy hour at Chart House, anchor and explore the sandbar by LBK bridge, order the grilled fish Caesar salad at Dry Dock...I could go on. Thank you Alise for sharing.

Always a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have just completed our fourth stay at this wonderful property. Since our last visit, the owners have upgraded the home with new appliances and new furniture in the living area, helping make our stay even more enjoyable. The location is quiet, and we especially enjoy taking morning walks at Joan Durante park just down the road. It is a great place to explore the trails and waterways and get a little closer to nature. Thanks again for a truly terrific time!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Longboat Key and this house was perfect,, it had the perfect 3 things. A really lovely pool that we all loved, a boat dock down a quiet canal great for fishing and mooring a boat and close to a

gorgeous beach where the owners had kindly left 2 beach chairs. We have booked for next year already for 2 weeks in paradise.

Excellent home away home!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at the Jungle Queen! The home had everything we needed for our stay with alot of extras you wouldn't expect. Loved the detail given to guests regarding the area attractions. Property was well-maintained & the pool was lovely! The beach is a short walk, 5 minutes tops & the chairs were an added bonus. Store, restaurant, bakery all within walking distance & Harry has it going on lol. The owners really care about their home & it shows. Thanks to them for sharing it!

More than we had hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this area before but decided to look for different accommodations this year. The home on Jungle Queen way was perfect for our family, even our dog loved it! The process working with the owner was a great experience from beginning to end. The property was clean and ready to go when we arrived. Loved the split floor pan to have a quiet zone for nappers that was away from the pool. Pour granddaughter was ready to swim every morning, noon and night. We spent a lot of time in the pool. Nice television in the family room. One of our favorite features was the dining room table. It was large enough to fit the whole family around, which was one of the reasons we chose this house. It did not disappoint. Big master suite w cable tv. The garage with washer and dryer was a great plus, fully loaded with beach cart, chairs, toys, etc. loved the short walk to the beach w a private access. Sunsets were amazing!! Bicycles were great. We relaxed and did jigsaw puzzles on the large family room coffee table. Great family time. We brought our boat and the fact that the dock was just steps from the door was a huge benefit. Loved going fishing and out to the sandbar. Great local seafood market & restaurant- Starfish Company in Cortez. Can go by car or boat. Ate from the restaurant, all open air seating- incredible shrimp. Also got fresh mussels, crab, and shrimp to take back to the house and do a seafood boil. Cash only though. St Armand's Circle has lots of nice shops. The Colombian is a wonderful place to eat. We would definitely recommend this house for a wonderful vacation place for people of all ages. There was something for everyone. Can't think of anything that I would do differently. We look forward to returning next year!! Thanks to Alise for sharing this special place!

Thank you for the photos you sent, and we look forward to hosting you back in our home! Alise

A nice boating holiday

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice time at the Jungle Queen house. We rented a boat and docked behind the home which was great for early morning departures. The entire family had a great time fishing from the dock and just sitting on the canal. Our best times were enjoyed around the fabulous dining table. What a great comfortable space for our family of 6 to sit around eating steaks grilled on the gas grill and fish caught that day on our boat. We all agreed...we loved that table and the dining space. The walk down to the beach was easy and short and the private beach access was wonderful. The kitchen had everything we needed. Everything was clean and well maintained. The owner was easy to work with especially considering she allowed us to squeeze in last minute! Thank you for that and thank you for sharing your home with us!

Our home is nested on a quiet water canal street adjacent to Gulf of Mexico Drive with direct private deeded access to the world re-known white sand beach of Longboat Key, Florida where you can come over every night for the most amazing sunsets. We are conveniently located between Sarasota and Anna Marie Island, with a 10 miles stretch of beach as well as walk/bike/running path to connect you to both. Sarasota is known for its fine art galleries, cultural events, live theaters, and the world class restaurants & shops of St. Armand Circle which is only a few miles south of us. To the north of us, there is the laid back Anna Marie Island full of beach cafes, ice cream parlors, etc. In addition to the beach access just steps away, Durante Park is an easy three block walk and offers several lovely shaded trails that lead you through the Mangroves trees ending at an overlook of Sarasota Bay. For families there is a nice shaded playground and for the nature lovers the park has numerous tropical plants and opportunities to observe dozens of sea bird species ( If you are looking for a more active holiday over 10 miles of biking/jogging/walking/rollerblading trails run along the Gulf of Mexico Drive just adjacent to our street. There are also world re-known tennis camps and the LBK Golf Club on the island, as well as free public tennis courts within 3 miles in the community center and plenty of reasonably priced public golf courses in nearby Bradenton. Minutes away are dozens of fishing locations, which helps give Florida the title of Fishing Capital of the World. After an active day our neighborhood have several walking distance options for refreshments. For your convenience Harry's (less than two blocks away) offers a Corners Store, Bakery and Fine Dinning Restaurant. Longboat Key is known as a beach-lover’s paradise on Florida’s west coast, but it is also home to one of the finest and most romantic restaurants in the country — Euphemia Haye - just four blocks away. Upstairs at the Haye Loft, you’ll find the best live music Sarasota and Anna Maria has to offer ( you don't have your own boat/kayaks/bikes there are local vendors who will be able to rent them to you daily or weekly (e.g. Backyard Bike Shop is two blocks way and offers bikes from $10 - 30/ day or kayaks $40-50/day and Cannons Marina is 1 mile north for boat rentals). In addition to the neighborhood locations the Sarasota area has numerous cultural attractions such as: Ringling Museum of Art, Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, Circus Sarasota, Sarasota Ballet, Opera, Orchestra, and several dinner theater companies. Tampa Bay is about 1 hour drive away and all the Disney theme parks in Orlando are just about 2 hours drive away.
