Guests love to come and enjoy the pool, beach and the countless activities in the area (from golf to mini-putt to visiting the Mote Marine Aquarium). Pets are welcome here.
The kitchen is a dream for the 'foodies' - there is a huge amount of cupboard space, excellent counter top area for cooking, terrific bright lighting and all of the tools needed to be creative in the kitchen.
The property is excellent for entertaining - we have had many get together's with great success. A guys golf weekend was hosted with rave reviews from 8 close friends and golf junkies (Longboat Key has several excellent courses on the island). This is also a superb spot for relaxing, for recreation or renewal.
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.
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).
