About The Owner

From our family to yours welcome to our home. Over the last 28 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 9 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 Florida South Central Gulf Coast

It is a very private location with a beautifully secluded beach


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

We rented this property based on the reviews and pictures. Upon arrival we were very disappointed by the over all appearance / cleanliness of the rental property inside and out.

The beach was beautiful and the use of community’s pool across the street was nice.

Owner's Response: I am very surprised and quite frankly do not understand this review for two reasons. The first is a new a/c unit was installed at the house the week before. Due to dust created by the installation I hired a professional cleaning service to assist me in a deep cleaning. We went all out which took two full days. Every inch of my home was cleaned from the bottom up. I even installed brand new doors, touched up paint, machine cleaned the tile floors extra nice, bought new towels, sheets, shower curtain etc. I thought it looked fantastic. The second is that I have received multiple 5 star reviews throughout this past summer letting me know how clean and comfortable my home is. Can so many people be wrong? I take serious the responsibly of making sure my home is nice for each and every person that stays there. I emailed the guest with an apology and asked him to elaborate a bit further so I can take corrective action if needed but have not heard back as of this writing.

More Than Pleased

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have been more pleased with the house, the location, and how it was equipped and furnished. We spent a week with friends enjoying walks on the beach, lots of shopping, excellent seafood, and taking in the Ringling Estate in Sarasota (must see). This rental is well worth the money. Can't go wrong. Owner was more than helpful when there was a threat of bad weather.

Very comfortable with a lot of room, clean and equipped with everything! Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This property was a great place! Very quiet and comfortable and clean. The private beach was So peaceful and relaxing. It was great we were able to take our little pups with us , they felt right at home too.The beds were comfortable and the house was equipped with everything that we needed. The outdoor showers were great especially when coming in off the beach. Loved having access to the Cedars Tennis Resort pool and restaurant.Met some great people , everyone was very nice. The owner Brian was extremely pleasant to work with and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect week. Always remember to shuffle when going into the ocean! We plan to return next summer if not sooner. Thank you for an awesome vacation!

Great Beach House!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Longboat Key and we were extremely happy with our stay overall. The house is a typical older beach home that has been redone. It is decorated nicely and has tile throughout making clean up after a day at the beach super easy. Brian met us there and was very informative about the house in general, restaurants in the area and how to access the pool/beach area. We also arrived about an hour early and he let us check in on arrival. He was so informative and extremely nice. The house was well stocked with everything we could possibly need. We also enjoyed spending time on the deck in the evenings. The grill that is provided is a charcoal grill, which we did bring but never had the opportunity to use. We have two older dogs that enjoy going away with us and they were comfy in the house as well. I would recommend this cute house which is in a quiet area for anyone. Longboat Key is not as busy and crowded as nearby Siesta Key. We also enjoyed spending our days riding bikes and visiting Coquina Beach which was about two miles north. Def worth checking it out.

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We met the owner, Brian when we arrived. He gave us tour and several recommendations of things to do and see during our stay. The house was immaculate and stocked with everything we needed. The amenities are wonderful, everything advertised is accurate as stated. For the price you can't beat it! The bedding was very comfortable. Even though there is no view of the beach or the water from the home, it is only short walk. The beach is not crowded at all and the water is perfect. The most amazing sunsets you will ever see! We rented bikes for the week which made getting around Longboat easy. We spent an afternoon at the Cedars East Club. The kids enjoyed a break from the ocean in the pool, which was sparkling clean! The management was awesome and inviting. The bartender, Kathy made amazing cocktails! The access to the club is a plus! We chartered a sailboat with Kathleen D's on our last day which truly made the trip! Longboat Key is a wonderful sleepy beach town. Brian's house was great! Perfect for a family of four!

Excellent House

  • 5 of 5

My family has been renting from Brian every year since 2010. Every time we go, we THOROUGHLY enjoy our vacation. There is access to the beach just across the road. When you walk out to the beach you discover a beautiful long stretch of white sandy beach that is very private. In the six years that we have been going to Longboat Key, I don't think we have ever seen the beach across from Brian's house very crowded at all. The water is so beautiful....the colors....clear, blue-green. Nice place to fish from the surf, too. There are many places to eat GOOD seafood in nearby Sarasota, Anna Maria, or Bradenton. We appreciate all the amenities of home that the rental offers.
