We have a large family; five children, and a full size dog named Molly. Given the diverse ages in our family we ensured this property can accommodate a wide spectrum of interests and activities to keep everyone engaged and happy.

The property is a perfect place as a 'magnet for our family'. Something that was attractive for each of the five children of the family (plus a dog) to want to come and visit.

A house with lots of space and enough things to do to keep our children interested and engaged was a tough assignment given they span almost 10 years from 14 years to 24. Hideaway Bay exceeded everyone's expectations. The older three ages 18-24 all travel with close friends so 'expansion' for another three or four guests was a requirement.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

My wife and I heard about Longboat Key from close friends of ours in 2008 so we started to look for a vacation property on the island in 2009. We bought this house in early 2010 and had it completely furnished by an interior decorator. The beach, the warm sunny weather and the quiet peaceful serenity of the Hideaway Bay neighborhood is the perfect place to be.

As the children in our family increasingly are joining the working world having an anchor or a great place to have everyone come and enjoy beautiful weather, great food and enjoy each others company has been a great joy.

Longboat Key is very accessible via Sarasota airport (20 minutes away) Tampa (just over an hour) and even Orlando airport (2 hours drive).

For the sporty set, there is are 2 shared tennis courts for our small community, 3 mountain bikes, basketball net and ball plus a pool. In the back of the property is a boat lift for those with ski boats (rentals are available from Cannon's Marina 5 minutes away).

AWESOME AGAIN

  • 5 of 5
Barb and Eric once again we had a blast at your home. I can't say enough about the amenities and the tranquil setting. We loved having our boat in the lift going out for morning fishing trips or evening sight seeing. My son and his friend caught at least 10 different variety of fish, my wife and I had close encounters with the manatee from your canoe and we had many pool games, billards that is. Once again it was very nice I wish I had rented it for the month. Thanks so much for your friendly and personal contact on email and the phone it was much appreciated.

Best Regards,

The Best Family 2014

BETTER THAT IMAGINED

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful accommodations. There is nothing wanting as it is nicely appointed and complete with all amenities. The home is nestled in a lovely quiet bay, great for walking or biking. There is a beautiful beach within 5 minutes walking and it is like a private beach as there are so few people that use that public beach. You do need a car to get around but then that's almost expected in Florida.

Owner's Response: Dear Allan,
Thank you very much for your kind words about 705 Hideaway Bay. We take great pride in having the house completely stocked with everything to enjoy a memorable vacation (and ensure it is spotless for every guest). Hideaway Bay is such a quiet and secluded hamlet. With the beach so close it feels like we have a whole resort for our private use. Your comment about needing a car is well taken for most of Florida, although one of these days I am going to challenge our entire family to do a complete circle of Longboat Key by cycle. On second thought, will leave that to our children and Barb and I will drive.
We hope to see you back to our very house soon.
Warm Regards, Barb and Eric

EXCEPTION HOME THAT HAS EVERYTHING!

  • 5 of 5
I am so happy to write a review for this property. We arrived to find this home exactly as advertised, a beautiful home, in a wonderful quiet location. No disappointment upon arrival to address, the house is very clean and put together. Very easy to get right down to relaxing because the house was so well equipped. This is an exceptional home for entertaining, large spaces and eating areas, plenty of comfortable seating. The house is located on a quiet street in a lovely neighborhood on North Longboat Key. If you are boaters you’ll appreciate the close access to both the intercoastal and the gulf. The house is near plenty of restaurants by water. The closest marina is just around the corner for boat rental and bait. There is a canoe on your private dock, a basketball net, bikes, tennis rackets, fishing gear, pool toys, pool table, ping pong table, nothing is missing! The property is professionally managed and the owners were responsive and friendly. Highly recommend!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Nancy

Thank you very much for your kind review. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay. It is great to hear you were able to take advantage of our boat lift and the marina so close by - it is not often this feature is used. The waterways are so accessible and great for touring around in a boat.

We very much hope to be able to welcome you back to our house. You were a fabulous guest!

Thank you again

Really lovely home with high quality fittings . Great secluded location but easy access to beach and town. Longboat Key has access to local supermarkets and restaurants and is really a nice place to relax.

The owners were very accommodating and easy to deal with , the concierge was on hand to greet us as we arrived . All went very smoothly and everything in the home was as described .

All in all we had a fabulous time and would highly recommend this home ... I would hope to visit again .

Owner's Response: Dear Steve,
That is great you had a fabulous time at our home.
Although we live in Canada 3 hours away by plane, our local Property Manager is only 15 minutes away. She is very conscientious and always accessible to help with questions or should any concern arise. She is excellent.
We hope you and your family will be able to come back for another visit soon.
Thank you very much for your kind note.

LOVE LOVE IT!

  • 5 of 5
You will not be dissappointed. Eric & Barbs home is beautiful and in an awesome location! I am so thankful they allow people to rent it. You live like a King & Queen! We had manatee at the dock several times during our two week stay. The home is located on a cul-de-sac in a quiet community of million dollar homes. The curved lane off the main road of Longboat Key, is perfect to take a shady walk with your dogs. The home has bikes which are so great to take to the beach or Harrys general store for anything you need. We had countless games of pool and once we fired out the television and sound system remotes, loved watching movies together. They get many many channels. The short boat ride out to the bay lands you to the bridge to Anna Maria Key, and is a big party spot on the sandbar.... Perfect to anchor and enjoying the scenery. My only complaint I can say about this home, was the master bedroom stayed warmer than the rest of the house, because it is on the 3rd floor, however with the ceiling fan over the bed it made for comfortable sleeping. The owners and renters are kind to leave things behind so you dont need to buy simple things, like laundry soap, shampoo, or spices. You will love it here, we did. Thank you again, Eric & Barb. :)

Owner's Response: Dear KC,

We are very grateful for your kind works about the property. We love it here too and are thrilled when people send us notes like yours. The air conditioning unit for the master bedroom is getting old and needs replacing. We have arranged to take care of this so a new until will be there soon.

it is so wonderful to hear of your experiences with Manatee's and your discovery of the sand bar on the north tip of Longboat Key. There is so much to experience in the area. We have also equipped the place with everything to ensure a memorable vacation. That is great you loved your vacation and our home.

Thank you very much for your note.

Regards
Barb and Eric

DREAM HOME

  • 5 of 5
This property was everything we expected it to be. It is an amazing property - the attention to detail in the house was second to none. The beautiful tile on the floors and counter tops, the shower and bathrooms were stunning, the great room was amazing and comfortable and the back deck and pool area were perfect. We were 6 adults staying there for a week - so the three bedrooms with a private bathroom each was ideal - half the reason we picked this property. There was also a half bath on the main floor for everyone to use. The kitchen was properly stocked and had everything we could have needed.
The location was ideal - only a quick walk to the beach and a quick drive to Publix grocery store. The house was located on quiet street - when you are in the backyard you feel so secluded and private.
The owners of the property and the local property manager were a delight to deal with - coordinating the stay with them was a breeze even though we only booked a week in advance. We will definitely be visiting this property again.
