About Tim Nelson
We are US expats from Minnesota currently living in Geneva Switzerland. My wife's job brought us overseas 3 years ago and we have decided to stay an additional 2 years so our children can both graduate from the school they are attending. We purchased this property to utilise as a winter home when we move back to the states. With that in mind we have furnished the house with quality furniture and furnishing that will still be in good condition when we are able to utilize it.
Tim Nelson purchased this House in 2012
Why Tim Nelson chose Longboat Key
We looked all over Florida for a place that had easy access to the Gulf. We found less expensive properties but chose this place as it is very peaceful and the sunsets are incredible. Did we mention we can get to the Gulf of Mexico in less then 15 minutes via boat?
What makes this House unique
First impression, when entering the house, is 'Wow'. All the finishes are of high quality and the decor is very elegant and comfortable. Did we mention sunsets? Sunsets are beautiful from all the main rooms in the house. The retreat area in the master is an unbelievable place to watch the sunsets. While in the kitchen you still are involved with people in all areas of the house as well as outside on the lanai and pool area due to the pass through bar.

3rd Year of living in Paradise!!!
WOW, we love it more each year and each year it is harder for us to leave. Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise "again" with us! Your house is absolutely beautiful and the view is breathtaking. It is so nice to be able to park our boat right outside the house and only have to walk a few short steps and be out on the beautiful Sarasota Bay! Can't wait to go back! Thanks again!
100% accurately pictured and described. The view...the pool and lanai...the house, great kitchen, good bed. We loved every minute, tried to get it for next February but already booked. Private and luxurious! Loved watching the ospreys fish.
Great location/view and accommodation! Very private and quiet venue. Tim, Dana and Karry were very attentive to our minimal questions/needs. The view from the MBR toward Long Boat Key is priceless. Close to Ringling, Anna Maria Island, etc. Five minute drive to the IMG academy golf course. Shopping/dining opportunities within minutes. We will be back next year!
We very much enjoyed our week at this lovely home. We had everything and more than we needed, the house was well appointed and well stocked. Absolutely gorgeous sunsets and great bird watching too. A beautiful, comfortable home in an absolutely gorgeous location! Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful home with us!
The Nelson's home is beautiful! It's right on the bay. We watched so many different birds throughout the day, some jumping fish, and even a mother and baby manatee swim up to the dock. The master bedroom has a wonderful bay window to watch weather fronts come and go (I saw a rainbow over Longboat Key on our last day after a thunderstorm blew through). The nearby beaches are awesome, and there's plenty of good restaurants and things to do in the area. This home is welcoming, comfortable, and hard to leave. We look forward to another visit!
Awesome house and location
The house is great, the furnishings are amazing, nice views of Sarasota Bay; also the owners do thoughtful, unexpected things to make guests more comfortable. We highly recommend this property.
Bordering town of Sarasota is well known as the “Cultural Center of The Florida Gulf Coast”. Art Galleries, Theatre, Opera, museums and professional sports are all close at hand. Sporting venues such as golf, tennis, biking, hiking, and water sports are abundant in the area.
While in Florida water sports are a must. Local attractions include; beaches, deep sea fishing, diner cruses, sunset cruses, Jet skiing, wind surfing and kite boarding.
Or you may choose to make a day out of other activities such as shopping, visiting Myakka State Park or the Selby Botanical Gardens followed by enjoying a meal at one of the many local restaurants.
Boat rental from the local marina allows you pick your party up at the dock. A fifteen-minute cruse across Sarasota bay and you are on the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy the many beaches along Long Boat Key and Sarasota Key or try your hand at some deep-sea fishing.
You may also want to take a day trip to Disney World, SeaWorld, Busch Gardens and all the large name attractions.
