We have been visiting the Sarasota area for almost 20 years and this was our second stay at this house with our two children and their partners. Nothing disappointed. The owners have done some superb landscaping beside the bayou. The house is still in excellent condition and we understand there is an imminent refurbishment in the pipeline, which speaks volumes for the quality of the property.
Attractions? Excellent beach just across the road, good sized pool, some top quality restaurants, lots of interesting things to do in the area, manatees in the bayou, ospreys seemingly everywhere, and all sorts of wildlife everywhere you look. Our son in law fished in the bayou every day and did some deep sea fishing in the boat of a neighbour who has a commercial venture. Unusual and highly recommended - De Soto Speedway with an early dinner at Linger Lodge (one of the most bizarre restaurants in US and surprisingly good)! Also the Old Packinghouse Bar with superb blues and country music nights.
We were very sorry to leave.
This is our second stay at Buttonwood in 2 years, and once again it provided a perfect base for our vacation in Florida. The owners clearly take great pride in maintaining this property to a very high standard, as this is primarily their holiday residence rather than a business venture, and it clearly shows. Any small problems that we encountered during our stay, were immediately resolved very efficiently by Sylvia, who looks after the property during the owner's absence. We have already reserved our Florida vacation for next year at Buttonwood as we know exactly what to expect, which is first class in all respects.
We discovered Longboat Key about 20 years ago, and have been returning most years ever since and staying in private villas offered as holiday homes. As an exclusive holiday location Longboat Key is hard to beat with several beautiful unspolit beaches close at hand, and the sophistication of Sarasota within 10 minutes drive away.
This property has been recently refurbished to a very high standard and the owners have spared no expense in providing a modern and elegant, first class accomodation that is ideally located for a very relaxing vacation. We will definitely be returning next year and hope to extend our vacation period, as we were reluctant to leave this year.
This was our 14th visit to the Sarasota area and this house was by far our best accomodation. The previous reviews really say it all, and we recommend this property with no reservations whatsoever. Simply brilliant!
My husband, friends and I had a fabulous holiday on Long Boat Key, based at Villa Buttonwood. The house was neat and clean and provided everything that one could possibly need. Bedrooms and sitting room were extremely comfortable, the swimming pool area good for relaxing and the location was quiet enabling just the holiday that we all required. Local restaurants such as The Chart House, The Cafe On The Bay were good. Myakka State Park, The Ringling Museum and Ringling's restored house impressive. The Armand Circle is wonderful for shopping. The owner was very helpful, in touch regularly and impressed us with her concern that we should enjoy ourselves to the full. I would thoroughly recommend this property.
This home is perfectly located on a bird lovers' canal and just a 5 minute (no more) walk to a glorious beach. The home is beautifully appointed, well equipped, and the beds are wonderfully comfortable.
The owners are extremely accommodating, and lists of restaurants, grocery and specialty shops are provided. If you like walking, the supermarket is an easy walk. All the amenities of Longboat Key are at your disposal.
Sitting around the pool reading or having cocktails with our friends was so enjoyable. We want to repeat this vacation over and over! Beach bums at heart.......
The house is situated on one of the finest and most exclusive Keys in the whole region.

Also in the vicinity tennis courts. 10 minutes away is the famous Armands Circle where you can stroll around the 120 shops and restaurants.
