For a casual dining experience, the newly renovated clubhouse features a restaurant with full bar – the perfect spot to grab a bite to eat after a long day exploring Longboat Key.

If fishing is your passion, in addition the pier at the end of the road, you can rent a boat just a few miles away. Fine dining, shopping and tourist attractions are all within a few blocks.

About The Owner

From our family to yours welcome to our home. Over the last 30 years we have enjoyed spending time together on and off the beaches of Longboat Key doing everything including biking, boating, shelling, building sand castles, watching countless sunsets and dining out to name a few. About 12 years ago when our boys turned 15 they had more interests that kept them closer to our Sarasota home so we did not use our island home as often and decided to extend an invitation to other families to enjoy our place as much as we have.

The Owner purchased this house in 1987

Why The Owner chose Longboat Key

It is a very private location with a beautifully secluded beach

Our stay was great. The house was very clean and equipped with everything we needed. Beach access was added bonus.

Nice "Old Florida" house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Brian's house. Everything was easy from check-in to check-out. Brian has a notebook of all the information you need, so settling in was easy. Our dogs enjoyed hanging out in the front yard, and walking them was easy in the neighborhood. We used the workout facilities and pool across the street and that was very convenient. The beach was close and beautiful - crossing the "main" street was easy.

Comfortable mattresses, plenty of towels, a washer and dryer, and a nearby Publix all made the stay very nice - thanks Brian!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to LBK for many years and we ALWAYS stay in this property. It has everything we need. The home is tastefully and comfortably decorated and the owner is so accommodating and pleasant to deal with. It is a one minute walk ro the beach and very convenient to stores and restaurants. We love the privacy of a home versus a condo and this one is perfect.

Since about 2010 we have enjoyed staying here every year during the month of June. It is a clean, wonderful, and quiet place to stay. In my opinion, the beach is the best in the entire area. If you like to get away from crowds, you will like LBK. Doesn't even come close to the crowded beaches like Siesta Key, or Bradenton Beach.
