About Carlos or Maribel

Growing up in the North Eastern part of the U.S., the winters were cold and long, so we decided to purchase a summer home in warm Florida. But not just anywhere in Florida; we fell in love with the Gulf Coast and especially Longboat Key 26 years prior while on vacation with our then, six month old daughter. Since then we made it a priority to some day buy a second home here. In 2006 and three kids later, our dream became a reality when we purchased this beautiful Mediterranean style home on the Gulf.

Carlos or Maribel purchased this house in 2006

Why Carlos or Maribel chose Longboat Key

We had been dreaming of buying a home in beautiful Longboat Key for years. We returned time and time again on vacation to this area. We enjoyed the beautiful clear, warm sandy beach, the friendly people and the slow pace Island living. In 2006 we immediately fell in love with this beautiful Mediterranean style home. It offered everything we were looking for, a wonderfully comfortable home with a great room with a fireplace to gather, relax and enjoy family time with our three kids. A dock for boating, a pool for evening swimming, hot tub for relaxation and a short walk accross the street to the most beautifully kept sandy beach on the Gulf. It also offered a short driving distance to beautiful St. Armands Circle where we enjoy going out to dinner and shopping. Since then, we have enjoyed bicycling, walking, swiming, jet skiing, boating and priceless moments spend with family.

What makes this house unique

You will feel home away from home here. Whether you are laying on the day bed outside on the terrace with your children looking at shooting stars in the evenings or just gathering as a family in the great room watching a movie or playing games, you will surely enjoy priceless family time and will create lasting memories for years to come as we have with our now grown three kids who still enjoy spending time here with us.

LOVED our stay at Longboat Key!!

  • 5 of 5
We felt right at home in this very family friendly, comfortable home. It was conveniently located: very short walk to the white sand beach, short drive to wonderful shopping, access to the community HEATED pool and hot tub, or just relax and watch the sunset from the balcony at home. The owner is very nice, had all the necessary details all ready for us. We'd go back again anytime! Highly recommend this home!

Five Fantastic Weeks at

  • 5 of 5
The listing description was spot-on in terms of location; the photos and amenities list were faithful to the property in every way. The property was clean and well maintained, fully stocked with bedding, towels, kitchen appliances and dishes. The grill made for great seafood preparation. The owner, Carlos, was very easy to work with and we encountered no issues during our 5 week stay. We (2 adults and 1 small dog were very comfortable. The space is generous and easily accommodates much larger groups. In fact, we didn't even use the attractive upstairs bathroom and 2 bedrooms!
The proximity of this property to the beach was perfect for morning & evening walks. Its location is an easy walk or bike ride (~1 mile) to Durante Park, Harry's store and restaurant. We enjoyed jogging routes north across the drawbridge to Ana Maria Island & Coquino Beach (~5,6,7 miles roundtrip) or biking the island from bridge to bridge (~21 mile route). We ate at most restaurants on the island (Euphemia Haye, Mar Vista, Don Giovanni's, Moores etc); our favorite two years running is Harry's --the service and food are wonderful for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We also enjoyed Sarasota's Saturday morning farmer's market, exploring Siesta Key and walking or kayaking in areas around Lido Beach. Shopping, dining or getting a gelato at St. Armands is always fun too.
In sum, we had five fantastic weeks at this property on LBK and would highly recommend it to friends and family.

A Beautiful & Spacious Home

A Beautiful & Spacious Home
  • 5 of 5
I still have two weeks to go in my five week rental of this lovely home. My family was here over Christmas and we had a very merry time enjoying the warm weather. Up north things are dreadful cold this Jan 2014 and I am so glad I am here instead!
The kitchen is well appointed with everything you need to make a family meal. In fact we made a delightful holiday dinner together and grilled steaks the next day. Lovely restaurants are a short drive away and as you head to Siesta Key so many more options, so you "can please everyone". I enjoyed shopping in St Armands and I also went over to the outlets in Ellenton too for the after Christmas sales.
This property is true to its description except it has a spaciousness the photos do not convey. The owner Carlos and his caretaker Jorge are both super responsive. There is a lot of pride evident in how well this property is maintained. The home is decorated so lovely. I would recommend this one highly to friends and family. One last thing, the location of this home is closer to the north end of Longboat Key and so the beach has that private feel you won't find approaching Sarasota. I enjoyed having my family here and you will too! I can't thank Carlos enough for letting me bring my dog along as she's family too!

Just As Promised!

  • 5 of 5
I am often skeptical of rental properties but this home is every bit as wonderful as the listing says it is. We six women visited for five days and the house was clean, cozy and wonderful. It is very convenient to the beach and the pool was directly next to the house. It is very roomy. The kitchen is very well stocked and the whole house is very welcoming. The sun terrace is dreamy. The owner is very very responsive to questions or any concern. For those traveling in cooler months, the only drawback is that the pool and hot tub are both cool. No hot water in the hot tub! But the beach awaits!
If you visit Sarasota...be sure to take a kayak tour of the mangrove tunnels on the bay!
