We are a family with two young daughters! We live in New England, but I grew up in Florida and we have family who live year-round in Longboat Key. We always wanted a comfortable and fun home to escape to during the cold winter months and we have made so many wonderful family memories at this home! We think you will, too!
Longboat Key is close to our family's heart because we have family who live year-round on the island. It is a peaceful island with lots to do from kayaking to biking to swimming to shelling! There are not a lot of tourist shops on the island, but there are islands close by that you can drive to should you want to explore those things. In the end, we think our cozy beach cottage is the perfect retreat no matter what you are looking for during your stay.
There is a wonderful aquarium called Mote Marine. Fascinating - sharks, manatees, all types of fish, sealife hospital, huge sea turtles, EVERYTHING about the ocean! The beaches on Longboat Key are beautiful and not crowded so you have a peaceful time should you want it. It is also filled with fun possibilities - amazing early-morning shelling, kite flying, sand castle-building, and the water is warm for swimming. Our home is a 5 minute walk to the beach so you can walk back and forth in no time. Also, only 20 minutes away is great shopping and browsing at St. Armand's circle. They have all kinds of shops and wonderful restaurants. On the mainland in Bradenton, there is big miniature golf course. And only an hour or so away are the Ellenton Premium Outlet stores! Shop till you drop!
