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.

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. Best decision 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.

Great North Location, Lots of Amenities: Pool, Outdoor Shower, Dock, Wonderful People

  • 5 of 5

Been coming to LBK for several years, but this is the first time we rented a house. We choose this for its many amenities, location and because they allow pets with permission. We loved that it had a clean working pool, which we used daily after spending time on the beach. We used the outdoor shower daily also, not only for rinsing after the beach but for actual showering, we loved it so much we are putting one in at home! We loved the canal access, boat dock and quick access to Jewfish Island, Longboat Pass and nearby restaurants available by boat. Loved the roomy and comfy living room, kitchen has ample counter space, and split floor plan if you use it that way. Master and spare are next to each other, each with its own bathroom (I found bed to be too firm for me) But there is another study/bedroom on the other side of the living room that has a twin trundle (soft) and half bath where my son stayed. He loved the 100 Mbps speeds! New Washer and Dryer is so convenient, you won't need to pack so many clothes, owners even provide laundry soap. Loved the front and back porches and fire pit too. There's even a putting green if you're a golfer. The street is quiet with very nice residents and we met so many wonderful people this trip, including the owners. The owners, do keep their own boat on a lift on property and may occasionally take it out, if that's an issue for you let them know, but we had no problem with it and feel like we made many new friends, and they were careful to stay out of our way. Great dog park on N. Anna Maria by the City Buildings and a new dog park complete with obstacles is about to open on South LBK. There are NO dogs on the beaches here (500. fine) but we took ours to Jewfish almost daily, the dog park, Joan Durante park (a must) and they are welcome on the causeway. You must pick up after pets. Bring your bikes, we biked everywhere, some restaurants, thrift store, Durante park, and to the LBK pass bridge (you can see bats at dusk) and beaches. There are three public beach access' within blocks of the house, super close and convenient (one hidden, try and find it!). The beaches here are very private. Note: Must try Tide Tables, the grouper fish tacos are the best I've ever had! Longbeach Cafe for breakfast on LBK and also try Ginny and Janie's on Anna Maria for breakfast, you will dream about the cream brûlée french toast and cinnamon rolls! Lots of great restaurants on Anna Maria. A Must Stay!

If your a boater or a beach person - both are perfect for this house. The house was decorated nice and well maintained. You could not ask for a better property owner too. We will be back for another vacation.

Good stay not so far from the beach

  • 5 of 5

Extremely clean house, and perfect for 4 people, as described on the website.

Our stay started on the 14th of January for one month and we enjoyed it. Whenever the weather was nice, and this was almost always the case, we had breakfast and lunch on the deck, looking at the fish jumping out of the canal. By the way, they are surprisingly active during the night and although we sleep with open window the noise they make did not disturb our sleep at all. It was only special and unusual.

The pool is not heated but the beach is close to the house and despite the limited number of public accesses on the entire island, there is one in walking distance (10 minutes). Sunsets are great and should not be missed.

There are bike lanes crossing the island from south to north and we made heavy use of them to discover the surroundings.

Last but not least, Stephanie and Mike were the perfect hosts, listening to and answering all our questions.
