My family and I just spent our summer vacation in this house. The moment we walked in, we felt right at home. The place is very cosy, extremely well maintained, comfortable and the decoration creates a very calm and relaxing beach house ambiance. It is located in a very quiet and friendly neighbourhood. We rented a boot at the nearby marina and enjoyed docking it right in the backyard. Longboat key is a great community, and a wonderful place to live or spend vacation. Lots of very good restaurants are to be found in the area. The shopper in you will also be completely satisified, you will find everything you need within a 15 minutes car ride. The same if you boat, fish or scuba dive, you will have it all there!
Don't hesitate to rent this property, you will not reget it! I know I will be back.
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!!!
From the moment you step in the front door, you know you are in for a good experience. Lisa is very responsive when needs arise and gives good guidance for things to see, restaurants, Etc in the area. Will definitely return!!!
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.
This is the most amazing place to be. We have stayed here a few times and would never go anywhere else in Florida. The house is so cozy and has everything you could possibly need. The beaches are beautiful (lots of fun looking for shells) and only a block to walk to or some days it was just nice to lay by the pool. Fun shopping and restaurants close by.
We never want to leave when the week is over!!
Quiet, gorgeous spot to vacation. From the beautiful landscaping to the warmly decorated rooms, this house made me feel at home while still being situated in a tiny piece of paradise. Convenient to everything--located 15 minutes away from St. Armand's Circle, 20 minutes from Sarasota, and 5 minutes from Anna Maria Island, where there are a ton of bars, restaurants, and water sports to enjoy. The house is located on a quiet canal with a pool, perfect for lazing around if you feel like staying home one day. My friend and I enjoyed absolutely every minute of it, we wish we could have stayed twice as long! House comes with everything one might need, including a detailed booklet from the owner of recommended local spots--owner also made sure she was always available for any questions or concerns. Fabulous place to vacation, can't wait until the next time we go back!
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.
