unspoiled beaches in the area. Our access is only three blocks away from our home where you have the feeling that you have your own private beach. Longboat boasts some of the wealthiest residents, and finest restaurants in the Sarasota area. Take a dip in the large heated pool (pool heat separate charge) or sip a cool drink in the screened-in lanai out back as you decide what to do for the day. Explore the beach, perhaps a round of golf, or a game of tennis nearby.
From this home, it's a matter of minutes to St. Armand's Circle, a shopping paradise. Longboat Key is a ten-mile long barrier island attached at each end by a bridge to the mainland. If you would like to go to theme parks - we are one hour from Busch Gardens of Tampa Bay or two and a half hours from Disney and Universal Studios.

About Farida Syed
We have enjoyed Longboat as our second home for over 15 years. We are so excited about our newest home which was just completed in 2011. We have two grown children and 3 wonderful grandsons who all come to enjoy the house often.
Farida Syed purchased this House in 2011
Why Farida Syed chose Longboat Key
We love the north end of Longboat Key for its relaxed neighborhood feel and proximity to the beach.
What makes this House unique
The north end of Longboat Key provides easy access to beautiful beaches (just a 8 minute walk on foot to our beach access) and Anna Maria Island. We have a local property manager that lives in Sarasota and she can help with any situation you may have while staying in our home.

Beautiful view with a great kitchen!
We stayed at this home for Thanksgiving with our adult children and grandbabies. There was plenty of room for everyone. The home had a great kitchen with a beautiful view of the bay. It had a nice pool with a hottub and a boat dock that we were able to use for the boat we rented.
Thank you Bonnie. We really enjoyed having you and hope you will come again soon.
Incredible vacation home
Our stay at this lovely home was amazing. Great location with access to fishing and the beach. We had family and friends visit us and the home was spacious enough that we all enjoyed our own space with common areas where we could be together comfortably. The kitchen is well equipped and the pool is perfect. We will be back! Additionally, we enjoyed dining at Harry's just down the street, and also carried out from their deli.
Perfect vacation house
Having visited Longboat Key once or twice a year for 25 years, we have rented numerous properties, from both VRBO and from agencies. This beautiful house on Lyons Lane is simply the best. The house is spacious and beautifully furnished, the views from the living room, upstairs bedrooms and two large balconies are wonderful and the huge and fully equipped kitchen is a treat. The owners have thoughtfully provided everything a family might need for the perfect vacation. We will definitely be planning future visits to Longboat Key around the availability of this lovely home.
We are so happy you enjoy our home as your own.
A relaxation oasis is exactly what my family of ten from ages 11 to 69 needed. Immediately on entering the home you could feel that this was going to be a retreat. The sound of the waterfall in the pool lured us to the outside to find a spacious outdoor living area around the pool and hot tub. The pool made for a great family gathering spot after spending the day on the beach. Outside the gate of the pool was a dock on the canal. A place to relax on the bench, watch the fish swim or fish.
The first floor offered an open foyer to access the upper floors via steps or the elevator. The elevator was great for those in our group that have mobility issues. A bedroom with twin beds and a restroom was just outside the foyer adjacent to the pool area.
The second floor you are greeted with amazing views of the bay. There was an island in the bay which birds flock to and made for great viewing from the second-floor front balcony. The back second floor balcony was screened in and featured an outdoor kitchen area for grilling. The kitchen was my chef husband’s dream. We ended up only eating out twice during our trip because we enjoyed the kitchen so much. The second-floor bedroom was a spacious retreat with a private bathroom. Tucked in one of the windows was a chess set on a small table with two chairs. The chess area became a nightly ritual of chess champion (I didn’t even realize my kids knew how to play).
The third floor offered even more amazing view of the bay in the front and the canal in the back. The master suite offered an open walk in shower with rain head shower was added surprise that made this house even more luxurious. The third floor also had two additional bedrooms with attached bathrooms and a conveniently located laundry on the third floor.
Refrigerators on each level made it very nice to have refreshments easily available. The garage was stocked with beach chairs and beach toys. There were also two bikes if anyone wanted to take a spin.
The location was a short walk to a very private beach that had crystal blue waters and amazing sea shells. The sea life was amazing, we saw dolphins, a school of white fish came swimming by and hop out of the water and a group of manatees came swimming by us so close we could pet them.
This was not just a vacation rental house, it felt as if it was our home away from home. This will be our home to rent on our next visit and we have already recommended to several friends.
It was our pleasure to host you and thank you for such a detailed review. I couldn't have said it better.
A Relaxation Oasis
A relaxation oasis is exactly what my family of ten from ages 11 to 69 needed. Immediately on entering the home you could feel that this was going to be a retreat. The sound of the waterfall in the pool lured is to the outside to find a spacious outdoor living area around the pool and hot tub. The pool had several depths and seating to ensure that our 6’3” son and our adventurous grandson could enjoy. The pool made for a great family gathering spot after spending the day on the beach. Outside the gate of the pool was a dock on the canal. A place to relax on the bench, watch the fish swim or fish.
The first floor offered an open foyer to access the upper floors via steps or the elevator. The elevator was great for those in our group that have mobility issues. A bedroom with twin beds and a restroom, which work well of our two twenty-year old sons, was just outside the foyer adjacent to the pool area.
The second floor you are greeted with amazing views of the bay. There was an island in the bay which birds flock to and made for great morning and evening viewing from the second-floor front balcony. The back second floor balcony was screened in and featured an outdoor kitchen area for grilling. The kitchen was my chef husband’s dream. The two microwaves, larger freezer and refrigerator, four dishwasher drawers, three ovens and multiple burner stove made meal preparations a breeze. We ended up only eating out twice during our trip because we enjoyed the kitchen so much. The kitchen became the central hub for the vacation. There was a connected family room with television that the children enjoyed some late-night television time. The second-floor bedroom was a spacious retreat for our older son and his wife with a private bathroom. The “pretty room”, a living area on the second floor in the front of the home, offered magnificent views. Tucked in one of the windows was a chess set on a small table with two chairs. The chess area became a nightly ritual of chess champion (I didn’t even realize my kids knew how to play).
The third floor offered even more amazing view of the bay in the front and the canal in the back. The master suite was very spacious with a sitting area to view the bay. This spot became my favorite to have a moment of relaxation and watch the boats on the bay. The open walk in shower with rain head shower and regular shower head was added surprise that made this house even more luxurious. There was also a large jetted tub. T
I can't say enough about this house! It's even more beautiful in-person than in the pictures. This house has everything you need for your stay - bikes, beach accessories, plenty of towels & everything you need in a kitchen. It's great for fishing, too - either in the bay out front or canal fishing right off the dock out back. Also, just a walk to the gulf. Every room has a balcony and a great view. Absolutely beautiful!!!!!! The owner and house manager were nice as could be and were very helpful in planning our trip. I would definitely stay again and would highly recommend this house to others!!!!
