Longboat Key House Rental Photos and Description
3 bedroom, 2 bath cottage close to Gulf and Bay
Great 3 bedroom, 2 bath house with pool on the north end of Longboat Key. Longbeach Village is a neighborhood with 'Old Florida Charm' unlike most of LBK. You will be two houses from the bay (boat launch and pier), and 3 blocks from a fabulous stretch of beach on the Gulf of Mexico. Two restaurant/pubs (Mar Vista and Moore's Stone Crab) are also right there. If you enjoy boating, you can bring your own boat or rent from one of the local marinas. Go north less than a mile and you are on Anna Maria Island and near Coquina Beach. Go south and explore the many miles of Long Boat Key, including the Mote Aquarium, and finally the fine shops and dining at St. Armands Key.
The house has three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room, dining room, full kitchen, as well as a 'Florida room'. Outside is a fenced-in yard with in-ground Gunite pool with plenty of chairs to relax in. A gas grill is also provided. Behind the fence is additional parking with room for a boat trailer or additional car. House has plenty of ceiling fans, air conditioning, 2 HD TVs, FiOS service with Phone/Cable/Internet/WiFi.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Steve, we are back at our home and would like to say "thanks" for sharing your home with us. My wife and I for many years have preferred private vacation rentals versus hotels or resorts, and yours now ranks very high on our list. I am already looking forward to future visits. The location is unbelievable, exactly what we like. Quiet, peaceful, not full of commercial development and high rises. So close to the bay and Mar Vista (did not get to Moore's....next trip). The bay was great for kayaking and so easy to access from your house. We paddled out to Jewfish Key and also went under the drawbridge to the gulf beach. That beach is fabulous; uncrowded, clean and just close enough to walk to and avoid parking hassles.
It is easy to tell that your home is not just a standard "rental". It feels more like your actual home that you go to. The quality and quantity of the towels, linens, kitchenware, dishes, silverware, etc. all show that. Great coffee maker, which I especially appreciated and there was a big pack of filters. The house was very clean and organized when we arrived, and we tried to leave it in that condition when we departed. Hopefully Svenja had a relatively easy job today. (She was very nice to bring me some replacement batteries for the remote control last Sunday) Although I must admit, I didn't put away the last load from the dishwasher. We loved the pool, it was clean, the surface and the pavers around it were very nice. Water temp was just right. Plenty of pool furniture too. Used the grill twice and it works fine. It was nice having some cooking items in the cabinet, like spices, oil, and balsamic vinegar; also laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, and full size washer and dryer. A/C worked perfectly, TV worked, water pressure was good in the shower, no issues! Finally, I really appreciate your pet policy; our dog was very happy all week and she especially enjoyed going on daily walks through the neighborhood with us.
We are from the northeast, but have been in love with this area for a long time. Someday, we hope to live here year-round!
We have always been interested in the 'old style' Florida villages like in the town of Anna Maria. We wanted a house, not a condo, and we wanted to be within walking distance of one of the great Gulf beaches. We spent a long time looking in Anna Maria before we realized that there was a similar area at the north end of LBK. It was everything we wanted!
1) Walk to beautiful beach
2) Private Inground Pool
3) Quiet friendly neighborhood
4) Steps away from bay for boat launch, fishing, kayaking, dining, etc.
