About Stephanie Fischer

Originally from Stillwater, Minnesota. Married with two teenage boys. We moved to Florida about ten years ago for the blue skies, sunshine and the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Blessed to be living in paradise.

Stephanie Fischer purchased this house in 2011

Why Stephanie Fischer chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Vacationed in Sarasota for 20 years before finally making the leap and moving down in 2004. One of the best decisions we ever made. Longboat Key is truly the best location in Southwest Florida.

What makes this house unique

You will love the indoor outdoor living. Tropical canal is so close, you can enjoy a stone crab feast on the back deck and throw the shells in the water.

A home away from home! Best of Both worlds! Had my cake and ate it too!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a home on Floridas west coast to bring our boat to. We currently live in Pennsylvania on the Delaware river and are active outdoors. We have stayed in siesta key in the past but wanted to explore more than just the beach. We searched for hours on the internet for something that allowed quick access to the bay and Gulf of Mexico up and down floridas west coast. We stumbled upon home and although hesitant to book a private home online (never did), we did it. The owners could have not been more helpful and reassuring with answering all my questions and responding almost immediately from day 1 of booking. The home itself was more than I expected. The home was immaculate. I'm the person that cleans the hotel or place of stay before I leave it. It was not only "you can eat off the floor" clean but perfectly set up as a home away from home place of stay. The home is very spacious, offering 2 large bedrooms with closets. The masters bathroom is in the bedroom and the 2nd bedrooms bathroom is directly across the hall from it. But wait, there's more! There's a 3rd bonus bedroom/half of home or whatever you would like to call it has a 1/2 bathroom, a super large closet and has a trundle day bed allowing for 2 more guests. This area does have a door to make it into a private bedroom and also has its own access to the screened in pool area. Oh yeah! I forgot about the front and back decks! There is a screened in pool with deck at the back of the home (people who live on the water consider the street side of the home as the back of the house), and a large front deck with aboat dock. The living room and kitchen has an open concept floor plan and very spacious. What I loved most about the interior, was that even though it was not built yesterday, it was maintained and remodeled impeccably. Again, I can't say enough how clean it was. Everything that the rental description states about providing, such as hand soap/laundry detergent/toilet paper/dishwasher detergent etc, there was plenty of. Now for the water, and all the exploration that can be done. The bay is 500 yards down the canal and the ocean 5-7 min away by boat. The water has multiple shades of blue and is simply beautiful. There's multiple sand bars to explore and places to go. BRING YOUR BOAT and enjoy! DO NOT hesitate to book with this owner. Oh and the beach is a 3 block away of you want to give your "sea-legs" a break! Waterfront dining to pull up to

Cute house, nice location!

  • 5 of 5

House was very clean and spacious. Quiet neighborhood located on canal, with lots of fish jumping out of water! Location just a short bike or walk to beach. Also, nice bike ride to Bradenton Beach. Short car ride to St. Armand's Circle and Sarasota shopping. Enjoyed everything about house, would definitely return!

Our new "home away from home"!

  • 5 of 5

Being familiar with the Bradenton/Sarasota area and having rented several beach properties in South Carolina, we decided to try a stay on Longboat Key for a change. This was by far our favorite beach rental. From the moment we walked in to door of the spotless house, we knew it was going to be a great week! Everything was thought of to ensure that guests have the perfect time. From the big, fluffy beach towels to the bin of boogie boards, beach chairs, noodles, etc., we had everything we needed for beach fun. The kitchen had everything we could think of and need. Having our own private pool was a huge bonus! The beach was one of the best ones we have been on. The kids loved shelling and looking for crabs at night. Although the house is not far from other area beaches (Lido, Siesta Key, Cortez), we never felt the need to go to any of them because the beach closest to us was perfect. At the end of the day, everyone had their own space to go relax. The beds are super comfy! The canal views are relaxing--even during a tropical storm! We enjoyed watching the fish jump in the canal, and our daily visit from the white duck. Stephanie is wonderful to work with--checking in to make sure we had everything we needed for an amazing time. We are looking forward to a return visit!!!

A Great Week In Longboat

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in your home. The house had a nice layout and everything was clean. The beds were very comfortable. Our dogs enjoyed watching the ducks in the canal out back. The location was good and we enjoyed shopping and exploring the restaurants nearby. We will consider renting this house again when we are visiting Longboat Key.

Beautiful home, Great location

  • 5 of 5

Everything and more than we expected. We appreciated all the extra thought and attention to details found in the rental. It was a short walk to one of Florida's most beautiful beach. This is a quiet part of the island which we were looking for. We would come back. For the bird lovers, the Chuck's Will Widow was fun to hear each evening at dusk. Also the sunset at the beach is a most see. Don't waste a dinner at the Dry Dock but do go to Mar Vista or Beach House.
