CHARMING CANAL HOME WITH PRIVATE DOCK, ENCLOSED POOL AND SHORT WALK TO BEACH

Longboat Key House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Lovely home, located on a quiet canal with a private dock in beautiful Buttonwood Harbour. Relax in completely enclosed pool surrounded by lush Florida landscaping. Enjoy the kitchen, dining room, and den with retractable sliding glass doors that open up to the beautiful lanai.

This home is located in beautiful, peaceful Buttonwood Harbor. The pool is completely enclosed with a screened in lanai. Enjoy the pool and peaceful, private dock on a deep water canal where frequent visitors include dolphins, sea rays and manatee. Daily visitors you will see are jumping fish, herons, pelicans and many other beautiful friendly birds. The house is located on a very quiet cul-de-sac with only luscious mangrove tropics across the street from the front of the house. We are also an easy walk, drive or bike ride to the beach.

Bring your boat and tie up right on your back yard dock. Walk down the street to the beautiful beach or jump on a boat and head straight out to Sarasota Bay. The cut to the gulf is only minutes away.

Relax by the pool on the screened in lanai. Enjoy outdoor living at its best as you watch the peaceful water and birds out back on the serene canal while sipping a cool drink and grilling your steaks on the grill. Feel free to cast off the dock to see what you will catch or maybe you'd like to rent a boat nearby and check out the sites.

The house is easy one level living. There is a spacious living room with a flat screen TV and generous view of the lanai and pool.

Take a short stroll up the peaceful streets of Buttonwood Harbour to the uncrowded, quiet, white sand beach perfect for morning beach-combing and end of day amazing breathtaking sunsets.

The master bedroom features a king-size bed, the guest bedroom also features a king-sized bed and the den area has two sleeper sofas.

This home has high speed wireless internet access so you will be able to work efficiently or just keep in touch with family while you are away.

The house is situated on a quiet dead-end street with minimal traffic. There are no homes across from you - just quiet mangroves along the bay.

The home is located in the neighborhood of Buttonwood Harbor. Almost directly across the street from the Buttonwood Harbor entrance is public beach access. You can easily walk, drive or bike to this access. There are three bikes available for biking.

This home and location is perfect if you have a pet. The street is perfect for walking together as you have the uninhabited area right across the street plus the neighborhood is wonderfully quiet. Longboat Key hosts tons vacationers with their dogs - having lunch and walking around St. Armands Circle, walking in Joan Durante Park, Beach at Bird Key, Beach on Cortez Avenue, walking Gulf of Mexico Drive, etc.

Longboat Key is on the West Coast of Florida, near Sarasota and one hour south of Tampa. Sought-after Longboat Key has some of the most unspoiled beaches in the area.

Longboat Key is a ten-mile long barrier island attached at each end by a bridge to the mainland.

Walk to our famous, wide, ten mile long white sand beach. Close to LBK's ten-court award winning Tennis Center. Ten minutes from St. Armand's Circle, known for it's boutiques and famous restaurants. A short drive to downtown Sarasota which offers galleries, museums, restaurants, shops and more.

Tampa's Bush Gardens is a short 90 minutes drive and Orlando's Walt Disney World is only 2 hours and 30 minutes away.

Major League Baseball, Grapefruit League Spring Training camp for the Baltimore Orioles in Sarasota and the Pittsburg Pirates in Bradenton Florida each spring.

The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art is located 11 miles away in Sarasota. The Museum of Art, built by John Ringling to house his personal collection of masterpieces, today features paintings and sculptures by the great Old Masters including Rubens, van Dyck, Velázquez, Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese, El Greco, Gainsborough and more.

GREAT RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay. The house was well equipped and spotlessly clean. The pool was great to refresh us after the time on the beach. I really enjoyed being able to drop my stand up Paddleboard in the canal step on and go exploring the bay. We will rent this house again!

EXCELLENT HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
The house is on a deadend streetin a beautiful setting. The pool is quite large and totally screened. The dock is an added bonus - my neice & husband arrived for a surprise visit on Easter Sunday via their boat. It was just fantastic. The furnishings and added items like a BBQ grill with an extra gas cylinder made this stay really enjoyable. Our lab, Zoe had fun chasing the many birds on our twice daily 1.5 mile walks.

PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
From our first contact with the owner until the end of our vacation my wife and I could not have been happier, this is not our first VRBO but it has by far been the best, this home is wonderfully maintained from the clean pool to the immaculately clean home,ample off street parking for truck and boat.This is a very quiet neighborhood the neighbors are very friendly and helpful. Bring your boat and enjoy the the west coast fishing and boating, we Kayaked the canal out to the bay and fished. This home has everything you will need for your vacation, enjoyed the lanai with its view of the canal and birds that visit every day, just a short trip to St Armands for shopping and restaurants. Must visit harry's Kitchen for great food, also Dry Dock restaurant.The kitchen is very well equiped with everything you will need to dine in Publix is just a short drive or walk for your grocery needs.We felt very safe and secure in this neighborhood even saw the local officers drive thru the area which gave us a great sense of security even when we were not home. We are already planning a spring visit to this home, so dont delay jump in and have a great time!

JUST ONE MORE EXCELLENT REVIEW

  • 5 of 5
This is our first time renting a vacation home in LBK and WOW it was amazing. My wife and I read all the reviews before renting this beautiful home and we have to say that it was beyond what we imagined. I can go on and describe how clean and comfortable the house is but, just read all the reviews and multiply it by 10. After one night we went back to VRBO and checked out when we could return to this wonderful home.
