Quiet peaceful and beautiful setting to for rest and relaxation!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time! Having cocktails on the dock along the canal, cooling off in the pool was great, having dinner on the pool deck as the sun set and relaxing in the great room after a busy Florida day was just wonderful. Almost can't wait until next year. Thanks again and have a great summer.

The location is a few minutes walk to a beautiful beach and close to many shops and great Restaraunts. Very quiet area backing to a lovely canal. You won't be disappointed. I would be happy to give a phone review. If anyone is interested, just ask for my contact info. We come from Toronto almost every year. Enjoy! Jay & Jackie

Beautiful home. Beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

This home, location and owners are second to none. We've been through a number of rental homes around the gulf and this is by far our favorite.

A lovely, comfortable home!

  • 4 of 5

The photos of this home do show exactly what it is like. Since the owners actually use this home themselves it is very well equipped, with nice pots and pans, spices in the drawer, and plenty of dishes and glassware. If there is anything amiss the owners take care of it immediately. We love the back of the house with the pool and quiet canal view. It's a nice neighbor hood for walking, an easy five minute walk to the beach (chairs, umbrella and wagon provided), and a quick drive down to the Publix for groceries. We like the quieter northern end of Longboat Key and enjoy the nearly deserted beach in February. Next winter will be our third year staying here! Thanks Lisa

Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best vacation home we have ever stayed in. The house was immaculate, spacious and felt like home from the moment we arrived. The location was perfect; quick walk to the beach, close to shopping and dining and the pool was a perfect escape from the heat! The owner was wonderful and made sure we enjoyed our stay. This was a vacation we will never forget, grateful to have had such a beautiful place to stay! We will definitely be back, I would highly recommend this property to friends and family!!!

Beautiful Florida Home

  • 5 of 5

We pulled into the driveway after dark, having driven the last 12 hours of our journey with only a brief stop. We were welcomed by warm lighting and tropical gardens. Entering the house, my friend asked-"Did you know it would be this nice?". Looking at the pictures online we had a pretty good idea- and we were certainly not disappointed. The home is decorated with attention to detail and comfort. It has a real Florida feel. We really appreciated the well-stocked kitchen, the basket of beach towels, books, DVDs, games and plenty of toys for the beach. The bikes were a bonus and were put to good use touring the island. Our favourite aspect of the house though was the tropical paradise outside- where we spent most of our time. The pool was so inviting and the deck had lots of comfortable patio furniture. The gardens are lush and provide plenty of privacy. The canal was a nice touch and the whole family was thrilled with the manatee we spied. The owner was extremely helpful with the rental process which went very smoothly. Anyone planning a vacation on Longboat Key would certainly have the experience enhanced by staying in this tropical paradise.

Just north of private Longboat Key is the famous Anna Maria Island. It is a 7 mile long barrier island located on the west coast of Florida off the city of Bradenton. It is connected to the mainland by 2 bridges and to Longboat Key to the south by another bridge. With its temperate year-round weather and beautiful beaches, Anna Maria Island has truly become a place that's gaining recognition world-wide. Surrender your days to being entranced by the warm lapping waters and sugarsoft sandy beaches.
