Our three bedroom home is very well equipped, is bright, sunny and clean and has everything you could possibly need in your home away from home. Sleeps eight comfortably (king-size in the first floor master; two twins in second bedroom, queen in third bedroom and a hide-a-bed in the living room).

With a beautiful pool out back under the screen-covered lanai, you can relax with a cool drink and sit in the abundant sunshine. Situated on a deep water canal, you can tie up your boat or rent one nearby. Take a short stroll to our white sandy beach. The sunsets at the beach are absolutely breathtaking! Theme parks within one to three hours are Busch Gardens of Tampa Bay, Disney World, and Universal Studios.

For those of you who wish to stay in touch with your business; or for your kids, who may need to complete some school-work; or for simply staying in contact with family and friends: Our home offers high speed internet service, and a wireless HP AirPrint Photosmart 7510 printer that copies, scans, and faxes. - All you need to bring is your lap top or your iPad.

Downstairs you will find a fully-equipped kitchen attached to a family room with fireplace and television, a formal living room and separate dining room that look out onto the pool as well as a separate laundry room off of the kitchen. Off of the pool/family room area there is a separate pool bath for your convenience which is equipped with a shower. There is also a spacious two car garage.

For your convenience the master bedroom suite is located off to the right on the main floor as well with it's own bathroom with separate toilet/bidet room and walk in closet.

Walk up a few stairs to find the 2nd bedroom equipped with twin beds and then up a few more to the queen size bedroom. These two bedrooms share the bathroom together which is equipped with tub/shower.

Great Week

  • 5 of 5
Loved this nice home with its close proximity to the beach. This spacious house was perfect for our family of 8 plus dog. We all loved the beautiful pool. The children were in it first thing in the morning and last thing at night. The home is very well maintained and comfortably furnished. Everyone wished we were staying a month instead of a week. Thank you Swansons for making our vacation special.

superb proportions in lovely location

  • 4 of 5
This is an imposing property which is ideally laid out for family use inside. Our initial impressions were sadly tainted by the poor upkeep of the pool and surrounding netting which was hanging down and the pool water was not clean. However, once this had been, very efficiently, dealt with, this situation was restored by the Monday. Maybe the only slight criticism was the lack of cleaning/preparation around the pool area, and in the kitchen the cooker had not been cleaned. However, overall we loved this house, its location and overall feel and indeed only a few days ago we were all reminiscing wishing we were back there sitting by the pool. A holiday thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you.

Owner's Response: The reviewer is correct in the condition of the pool area upon check-in. Between visits we are always doing improvements and repairs to the home to keep it working and looking its best. Unfortunately, some bad weather just prior to their arrival had delayed us from finishing some exterior repairs near the roof by the pool. As the reviewer mentioned, we had everything resolved by Monday. I regret any inconvenience caused to the renter and their family.

Awesome house on LBK!

  • 5 of 5
We had never stayed in a house on LBK. We always chose the condos on the beach, but we wanted a little more room this time. We also wanted to bring our pet as many of us know dogs become part of the family! This house was perfect! The pool was great! MORE than enough room to spread out and relax. Of course we missed being ON the beach, but it truly is an easy walk from this house. If you are wavering on whether or not to rent here, please do. You will not be disappointed.

Lovely Longboat Key Home

  • 5 of 5
This pleasantly laid out home on the wonderful island of Longboat Key has for two seasons been a delightful setting for our family gatherings. Its airy,
light-filled spaces, many of which face the pool, are comfortably furnished, well-maintained and immaculately clean. The professional way in which the property’s manager interacted with us and responded to our questions helped ensure that our stay would be as relaxed and carefree as it was. The so-called Sleepy Lagoon neighborhood in which the house is located is quiet and friendly and within easy walking distance of the beach. That beach and a parallel wide sidewalk that run for miles along the length of the island provide a great place to walk and enjoy the crystal blue waters of the gulf and the lush landscape of the key.

Longboat Key is on the West Coast of Florida, near Sarasota and one hour south of Tampa. Sought-after Longboat Key has some of the most unspoiled beaches in the area. Our access is only three blocks away from our home where you have the feeling that you have your own private beach. Longboat boasts some of the wealthiest residents, and finest restaurants in the Sarasota area. Take a dip in he large heated pool (pool heat separate charge) or sip a cool drink in the screened-in lanai out back as you decide what to do for the day. Explore the beach, perhaps a round of golf, or a game of tennis nearby.

From our home, it's a matter of minutes to St. Armand's Circle, a shopping paradise. Longboat Key is a ten-mile long barrier island attached at each end by a bridge to the mainland. If you would like to go to theme parks - we are one hour from Busch Gardens of Tampa Bay or two and a half hours from Disney and Universal Studios. Galleries, museums, and live theater are within a 25 minute drive.
